Jerry Jones

Team(s): 
Short bio: 

Jerral Wayne "Jerry" Jones Sr. (born October 13, 1942) is an American businessman. He is the owner, president, and general manager of the NFL's Dallas Cowboys.

When he graduated from college in 1965, he was hired as an executive vice president at Modern Security Life of Springfield, Missouri, his father's insurance company. He received his Master's degree in business in 1970. After several unsuccessful business ventures (including passing up the opportunity to purchase the American Football League's San Diego Chargers in 1967), he began an oil and gas exploration business in Arkansas, Jones Oil and Land Lease, which became phenomenally successful. His privately held company currently does natural resource prospecting.
Dallas Cowboys

On February 25, 1989, Jones purchased the Cowboys from H.R. "Bum" Bright for $140 million. Soon after the purchase, he fired longtime coach Tom Landry, to that point the only coach in the team's history, in favor of his old teammate at Arkansas, Jimmy Johnson. A few months later, he fired longtime general manager Tex Schramm, and assumed complete control over football matters.

The Cowboys won the Super Bowl at the end of the 1992 and 1993 seasons. After the 1993 Super Bowl victory, reports began to surface in the media that Jones had made the statement that "any one of 500 coaches could have won those Super Bowls", given the type of talent that he (Jones) had drafted and signed for the team. Jones also stated to reporters at a late night cocktail party that he intended to replace Johnson with former University of Oklahoma coach Barry Switzer. The next morning, however, Jones famously denied those reports by stating that it "was the whiskey talking". Johnson was eventually forced out in 1994 and Switzer was hired to be the new head coach. The Cowboys won the Super Bowl for the 1995 season.

Good morning,

My compliments on a first class organization. You are an amazing business man and it’s inspiring to see you and your family conduct such an under taking.
That being said, I’m somewhat disappointed in this year’s team. I say somewhat because I realize it’s early in the season and there’s a lot of football to be played. My primary reason for concern however is the fact that it doesn’t appear that the organization sees/understands that our offensive system is broken and needs a new direction.
Let me also say that I appreciate your faith in Dak. I’m from Mississippi and am no doubt biased but I don’t feel your coaching staff is placing him in a position to succeed due to the fact that you are not playing to his strengths. The first designed run was in the 4th quarter and most of the routes being called are very predictable “come back” routes. The few times we’ve gone down field have worked. Austin and the play to Zeke where he stepped out of bounds. Since this is a make or break year for Dak contract wise why not let him leave it al out on the field/table and run more RPO.
I have a lot more to say but those were just a few things. Again, thanks for your time

There will never be another ring in Dallas or a Super Bowl appearance until Garrett is gone and a coach comes in who can run the team the way he wants is hired.

When are you going to realize we are not going to the Superbowl with Garrett. 4th an 1 on OT and he opts to punt it instead of converting? Opting to punt is literally handing over the game. At least trying to convert would of gave us a chance. No Superbowl until Garret is gone. Mock my words.

I’ve rode with this team for years and years! But this mediocre play calling from these inept coaches have just come to my wits end! I can’t take it anymore! These coaches SUCK! I’m tired of having all this talk and we can’t beat below average teams! I can’t take it anymore! Do what is right and FIRE these BUMS or lose a lifetime FAN! Ugh! I’m so MAD right now! I’m tired of LOSING! I HATE all of YOU!

Mr Jones
I have been a Cowboy fan for over 40 years and a season ticket holder since 2007
In all those years I ever never seen a worse decision by a Cowboy coach. That decision showed that the head coach had no confidence in his team. In a 10 minute OT as you know if you have a chance to score you’ve got to take it. By punting from the opponents 42 on a 4th and 1 you lose your opportunity of winning the game and almost hand the victory to your opponent. Even if the Texans go 3 and out their punt would put you in a worse position than where you were at their 42 yd line. When you have the best running back in the nfl and one of the best O lines also. If you don’t believe your team can pick up that yard and a half when the game is on the line then you need to resign as their head coach.
I am not a Garrett hater at all as a matter of fact I like him and respect him as an individual but now have lost all faith in him as the head coach of our beloved Dallas Cowboys! He had a chance to pull a victory from the jaws of defeat and simply gave it away. At that point our defense was exhausted from playing an amazing game and the soft prevent defense didn’t help either when all it took was a short pass to Hopkins in the soft center of our defense and after at least 3 missed tackles and a gimme FG our fate was sealed. With that 1st down at the 42 and just a couple more yards on 3 plays Maher would have won the game for our Cowboys whose defense gave that game everything they could muster until they were completely exhausted in the OT. Our offense as you are aware was terrible in that game. Not because we don’t have the best running back in the nfl but because the play calling was simply atrocious. One great play in 4 plus quarters does not make for a good offensive scheme. I sat on my chair at home and called out 90% of the plays the entire game to my wife which had very little imagination. And if I can do this you know their def coordinator can do the same. We are not the same team without Dennis Fredrick. I know it you know it and the rest of the nfl knows it! You can’t keep running Zeke into the teeth of their defense especially when everybody and their mother knows you are going to do it!
Bottom line you are never going to get this team to the Super bowl or even an nfc championship game with Garrett and company at the helm. He is just too much of a nice guy and surrounds himself with too many Yes men. When was the last time you saw Jason grad a player by his jersey when he came off the field after making a terrible bonehead mistake that cost the team dearly in a game? Never! Is the right answer. Their has to be accountability. You are sure paying the players enough not to be stupid on the field. As much as I don’t care for the Steelers, Bill Cower was a coach that let his players no immediately when one of them made a mistake that was going to cost his team. Maybe that is someone you should be talking to as our next Cowboy coach!
I truly hope you read this. I know you get lots of emails but you have to know that some shake up has to take place after Sunday’s debacle or myself and others will be leaving the Cowboy fold in droves!
Thanks in advance for taking the time to read this from a very frustrated fan!
Yours truly, MJ Lauffer

Good morning Mr. Jerry Jones, Happy Birthday a day early! I heard that the Panthers hired a therapist to help with mental well being of the team.

My father introduced me to football, when I was 8 years old and have been a fan ever since. I was even so fortunate to have my dad take me to Superbowl X. Even though the Cowboys did not prevail that day, 21-17, Pittsburgh, it remains one if my most cherished memories. When I was younger, people told me I should become a Dallas Cowboys cheerleader, I said no thanks, I want to be the owner! No worries, I am not after your job, but as a Licensed Clinical Social Worker with 30 years of experience, I would love to help the team in any way I can. #America's Team Forever

Mr. Jones I’m a retired high school football coach of 44 years, I coached for most of the time at West Orange-Stark high school ( KEvin “Pup” Smith ) I live in Waxahachie now and was talking to a church member I attend with and he mentioned that the new Atlanta Falcon stadium has either pictures of or the actual helmets of every high school in Georgia...it would be outstanding if you were to display EVERY high School football helmet in Texas, extraordinary form of respect for Texas high School football

How far into the season are you going to go until you finally realize Dak doesn’t have what it takes to be an NFL quarterback? He doesn’t have the finesse Tony did. He can run but he can’t pass. You stick with players far to long!

As a LONG suffering Cowboys fan. We got a Great National fan base, Great stadium. WE deserve better. .500 record is not acceptable. We should easily be at worst 11-5 each and every year. Jason has had ample time to get us to the damn TOP!!

We need a new coach or a new offensive coordinator we got the players to win but they are miss calling in the offensive side

We have talent on this team that is not listening to the coach’s message. They are not buying the end goal from our coach. I have always been a glass half full fan, but I have found myself struggling to stick with the current situation. This coach is the definition of insanity. I long for a team that you cheer for because they did everything right. The coaching decisions have killed my spirit. Our coach lacks emotion and that is what players relate to.

I. Nobody really. The only thing we have in common is our devotion to this team. Your fanhood is right up there with me and skip Bayless. But you have to come to the realization that you create these perfect storm of everybody falls short because you don't have a guru to bring out your best.really think about it if Bill Belichick had had this team with this exact group of players know Tom Brady he would have won the same amount of Super Bowls maybe even more just because of the Cowboys sure will but you have single-handedly tried to create what you love when you already loved it let somebody else who knows what they're doing created and get rid of Jason Garrett even Tony Romo and Jason Witten right now I would take them for coaches over Jason Garrett the back up the always backup she said he wasn't even a good enough backup you guys had two shots sign Bernie Kosar when Troy broke his finger we've been heartbroken so long realize you don't know how to Guru this team you put the pieces in place get the coach

I have been a part of Dallas Cowboys football since I first saw staubach and the legend Tom Landry on the sideline.i was three and I hated Mondays because dad was in front of the t.v. football that's incredible was a nightmare but not when the cowboys came to the show. Those cheerleader and the true America's team were my own my dad hates us mom doesn't care but I never feel more apart of whenever I see a Star. We've been bad a bunch but I knew that the star would get it right at least once every twenty years. And now we have basically The Replacements of head coaches he's who you put in when you have no other choice and then you have to make a different choice it's like watching The Replacements with the QB that is not Keanu Reeves on the sidelines there's no heart there's no desire there's no knowledge of how to be a winner but Troy s*** if Tony would have had one good offensive coach he would have been Dynamic Bill Parcells really created a great great player and you should have got him a ring it's too late for that make him a coach let them work you don't know football you know how to love football you make the money let them shop for the groceries get a new coach

You listening Jerry? Dallas' two Hall of Fame quarterbacks are talking about how you are running the team into the ground. They know way more about football than you. Patient, fans have known for years that your egomaniacal persona has destroyed the organization. I implore you to back away and just sign checks. Let the football gurus run the show. You are an embarrassment and laughing stock of professional sports and you make it very, very hard for fans to continue to remain loyal. John J. Krapcha, ABQ.
