Brian or anyone - What do you think of Jones as an owner. When I read what he's said, or if I listen to him neutrally, I find he's got a keen mind for the game. I could see him as commissioner. But as an owner, he seems like a dolt sometimes.

Pardon me if I'm long winded on this, but....
I agree with what Rich and Matt said. To me, he comes off as good evidence for an argument that owners should not be allowed to all be general managers. He seems to be someone who truly wants to win but has an ego and emotional issues that prevent him from seeing the big picture and realizing that he's not always right and that you can't rely on someone just because you like them. Tony Romo was the team's QB longer that he should have been, and Jason Garrett should be long gone from the head coaching position.
He's delusional regarding Jason Garrett and the Super Bowl. Garrett has only had one losing season, but he's also only had 1 playoff win. He often makes bad choices when it comes to playcalling, and doesn't take risks often enough or in situations when he should. The loss to Buffalo was mainly due to bad playing by their QB and others, but the loss to the Patriots can be placed on Garrett and on a bad call by the officials (the tripping penalty late in the game shouldn't have been called at all).
Personally, I have little faith in the Cowboys winning another Super Bowl with Jones as their owner. He's been trying too hard to prove that the team's 3 wins in the 90's weren't due to Jimmy Johnson and Barry Switzer, and it keeps blowing up in his face. I also do not like some of the choices in players that they've signed. Too many with bad attitudes or reputations. I was vehemently against Greg Hardy and Randy Gregory being picked up, for example.
i don't know if its true, but rumor is the only reason Dallas didn't draft Johnny Manziel is because Jerry's son literally stopped him from doing so. Can you imagine what a disaster/dumpster fire that would have been?!
Jerry Jones seems great as a person. Incredible ambassador for the NFL and does a lot of charity work. But as an owner, I give him a D. And that doesn't stand for Dallas!
