Tony Grossi was one of my favorite NFL writers to read in Cleveland. He’s got his take on the Cowboys and spoke with Jerry Jones in the Plain Dealer.
While some owners like to consider themselves their team’s general manager, Jones has the title to prove it.
The fact that the Cowboys are on the verge of a Super Bowl-or-bust tour is sweet icing on his cake. Life hasn’t been this good since Jones teamed with Jimmy Johnson (and then Barry Switzer) for three Super Bowl championships in four seasons in the 1990s.
“I think the key is I feel good about our quarterback,” Jones said in a telephone interview on Tuesday. “When you have quarterbacking that you feel gives you a chance to win, that causes me to stretch out, to do some higher risk things in terms of other personnel moves. I felt like that when we had Troy Aikman in place.”
