A Decade of Infamy – The Dallas Cowboys, Jerry Jones & Destruction
The current malaise of the Dallas Cowboys is constantly being chronicled by journalistic types across a broad spectrum of media. Whether a blog post or a tweet or, imagine this, a legitimate product consisting of professional content and integrity, the daily machinations of General Manager Jerry Jones are under the watchful magnifying eye of lovers and haters alike.
And like the infamous bombing of Peal Harbor more than 60 years ago, the Cowboys have finished their own decade of infamy, though not from the expected sources of exterior enmity. No, this extended malaise in the cellar of the NFC East for much of the first decade of the new millennium was the result of the direct barrage of an Owner who exuberantly exercises his official duties as General Manager as if he were the incarnation of every Cowboys’ enemy in history. Misguided drafts, star crazed, misfit free agents and the coaching intervention carousel have all combined to leave the Cowboys of the 21st Century professionally shell-shocked and sporting their worst decade in history.
How did this happen? Well, the details are in the recently published book by Ryan Bush entitled, Decade of Futility – How the Leadership of Jerry Jones turned Americas Team into a 21st Century Debacle and resulted in the Worst Decade in Dallas Cowboys History. It was published in July of 2013 and is available Worldwide through this site. To order your copy, please click here!
