Dallas Cowboys Trip Again – Jerry Jones Gets Due Credit
Sometimes, dwelling in the past can be a good therapeutic exercise. For Dallas Cowboys fans of 2015, the present crisis that is showing signs of extending into whatever after life the Cowboys are deemed worthy of, is nothing but a continuation of the past two decades of flirtatious futility and plain ole’ pitiful football. Whereas the past has found Cowboys fans looking to a future Football Savior to appear and provide a victorious championship balm comparable to past eras of glory, the current malaise finds fans looking to an already recognized Franchise Messiah in the person of one Tony Romo.
After losing to the obviously struggling Tampa Bay Buccaneers, a team also looking to a return to past glory, the Pokes from Texas find themselves in the staggering
position of thanking the rest of the NFC East for their assistance. The Cowboys peruse the standings to shockingly see that they still have a legitimate shot to scratch and crawl their own path to the NFL Post Season, thanks to their sister teams graciously sharing their own brand of ineptness with the bottom dwellers from Texas.
Let’s admit one thing. The only reason there exists the slightest glimmer of Playoff Football Hope is the return of Tony Romo against the Cowboys’ next foe, the Miami Dolphins. This glimmer can only be kept if Romo accomplishes what will be very difficult and extremely unlikely, win the remainder of the Cowboys’ games. But as they say, hope, in this case, the hope of perfection, springs eternal!
After a 10-6 loss to the Bucs, a loss that wasn’t surprising since a full game of Professional Football has not been experienced by this franchise one time this season, a season of genuine heartfelt thankfulness may be in order. Of course, thanks given should always be directed toward the proper person.
As all knowledgeable and fully informed Cowboys fans know, there’s only one person who demands such accolades, and has since early in
his tenure. In fact, Owner and General Manager Jerry Jones, fired his first hire, Jimmy Johnson. Why? Simply because Jimmy wouldn’t publicly share credit forbuilding the Cowboys of the early 90’s and because Johnson refused to share the exclusive contractual authority that Johnson held over all personnel. When the repeated demands of Jones went unheeded and Johnson publicly refused to respond respectfully to Jones’ social overtures, Jimmy was shown the franchise exit.
So, fans around the world should offer deeply felt thanks toward the 4 million dollar aura that is Jerry Jones. Thanks to Jerry Jones, the Dallas Cowboys have not been the same since he got his way. America’s Team has not been the same since Jerry began to get full credit for all things Dallas Cowboys.
Yes, that means that the deep franchise pit that the Cowboys must at least attempt to climb out of is the direct product of the Ownership and Managerial expertise of Jerral Wayne Jones. Who are you and who am I to argue with such demanding evidence, evidence that has accumulated over the past two decades and has received prominent display? Yes, this mess of Jerry’s is ugly, with a stench all his own. Nobody else can take credit for it. But that’s the way Jerry wants it!
