Jerry Jones: You’re going to give me credit when Cowboys win a Super Bowl, right?

As the years pass, more Dallas Cowboys fans are becoming fed up with owner Jerry Jones serving as the team’s general manager. The Cowboys have not won a Super Bowl since 1995, and Jones is 70 years old. Many believe the game is starting to pass Jerruh by, but he is committed to remaining involved with football decisions and not just being the checkbook behind the operation.

Not only that, but Jones wants to make sure he gets some credit in the event that the Cowboys do eventually hoist another Vince Lombardi Trophy while he still owns the team.

“I pretty much go with what I did the night I bought the team,” Jones said at the scouting combine in Indianapolis last week, via the Star-Telegram. “I said I was going to be the GM. … It would be a facade if someone else was sitting in my shoes and someone thought they were spending the money. It would be deception. … I would grant you the decisions that have been made over the years have not produced a Super Bowl, two Super Bowls or three Super Bowls that I would like to have been a part of. And the only thing I am going to do there is keep trying and then make sure I get the credit when we do get that one. Y’all are going to give it to me, aren’t you?”

Don’t worry, Jerruh. If there’s one thing we know about sports, it’s that fans are capable of forgiving and forgetting quicker than any other collection of people in any other facet of life.

Jones once said he would have fired himself as GM by now if he was on the outside looking in. Fans have submitted a petition to the White House requesting that Jones be removed as the Cowboys’ owner. Should Dallas win a Super Bowl in the next few years, none of that will matter. If they don’t, the resentment toward Jones will continue to grow at a rapid pace.

    Forget the online petitions, hit him where it hurts. We as true Dallas fans need to hit Jerry where ir hurts, in the pocket book. DO NOT buy Dallas Cowboy jerseys, DO NOT attend their games. Only when he removes himself as GM and we see a TRUE championship contender should we start attending games and buying their apparel. This is the only way this will work. If we make HIM the laughing stock of the NFL.

    look….even Bud Adams’ team made it to a Super Bowl.  no amount of success will change the fact that  Jerry’s a joke who has no idea how to get out of his own way.

    Be real cowboysfanforlife:  No true cowboys fan is going to do non of that!  I like JJ as a GM.  I like everything about the Cowboys.  If you don’t so what.  I say go fine another team to be a fan of, because as long as JJ is alive he will be the GM of the Dallas C0wboys and that ok with me.  A real Dallas Cowboys fan!!!!

    Notice how Roger doesn’t say who he follows. At least we have 5 championships. Follow that to the grave Beyatch.

    Oh really kenman, no true Cowboys fan is gonna do that. I’d like to hear from you other fans. So you’re saying just sit there and enjoy the disaster of a team they have become instead of trying to change it. Yea, that’s a true fan. Accept the fact that JJ’s ego is bigger than the team and all he cares about is making money. That’s a true fan all right. NOT!!!
