Troy Aikman calls for ‘complete overhaul’ of the Cowboys organization

Troy Aikman calls for ‘complete overhaul’ of the Cowboys organization "I talk to people in the building and from what I hear is that there's a lot of dysfunction." - 1310 The Ticket (@dfwticket) November 6, 2018 Via dallasnews.com: "I don't think, where he's (Jerry Jones) at right now, that he wants to go through another regime change. I think he's very comfortable with Jason (Garrett). I do believe he respects Jason and he's hoping like crazy that good things will happen here down the stretch so that a change doesn't have to take place.

Jerral Wayne Jones (born October 13, 1942) is an American businessman, best known for being owner of the National Football League ( NFL )' s Dallas Cowboys since 1989.

It’s not every day the NFL ’ s most powerful owner watches his evisceration live and in person. But when the newscast ended and the TV lights dimmed Jones is being inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame this weekend because he won three Super Bowls and became a singular figure within the NFL .

The losses are piling up for Jerry Jones.

I don’t just mean those of his Dallas Cowboys, though they’re contributing more than their fair share to their owner’s woes. Dating back to his failed coup against NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell last year, Jones has found himself on the wrong end of, well, pretty much everything.

His team stinks. A conduct policy for the national anthem that he advocated has been abandoned. The Congressional candidate he backed lost – to a former NFL player, of all people. Dez Bryant is now closer to the Super Bowl than Jones and the Cowboys are after signing with the New Orleans Saints.

Even a 7-year-old is taking shots at Jones.

“WE SUCK!” Rylan Wood said in a letter he sent to Jones this week. “We want to believe in the boys but it’s hard.”

Perhaps this is only coincidence. Bad things do tend to come in clusters, after all.

But it could also be karma, the universe’s way of taking Jones and his outsized ego down a notch or 12.

Jones has always considered himself to be the de facto head of the NFL. His Cowboys are the most valuable and, by many measures, most popular team, generating significant revenue for the entire league. Jones also showed his fellow owners how to turn their stadiums into cash cows.

Dak Prescott’s future in Dallas undoubtedly is tied to Jason Garrett’s

Dak Prescott’s future in Dallas undoubtedly is tied to Jason Garrett’s Sure, Cowboys owner Jerry Jones has said that quarterback Dak Prescott will eventually get a second contract in Dallas. 

The NFL sent a letter to Jerry Jones ' attorney Wednesday laying the foundation to potentially remove Jones Jones has repeatedly clashed with the NFL ' s compensation committee over his attempts to block Goodell's Since then the Cowboys have become the most valuable sports team in the world

Jerry Jones ' rise to the top as the NFL ' s biggest power broker and owner of the most valuable team in the In Jones ' first 75 days as owner, he redefined the definition of "cleaning house." Jones hired Jimmy Johnson as the coach when he became owner of the Cowboys, and Johnson led Dallas to two

So when he throws his weight around at league meetings, the rest of the league usually acquiesces.

But Jones overplayed his hand last year by trying to block Goodell’s contract extension in retaliation for Ezekiel Elliott’s six-game suspension for domestic violence. Not only did Goodell get his new deal, the NFL fined Jones $2 million for what his fellow owners deemed “conduct detrimental to the league.”

In an indication of just how badly Jones had botched the situation, he was snubbed by Falcons owner Arthur Blank, head of the compensation committee, when the Cowboys visited Atlanta, a stunning breach of the usual congeniality between owners.

The bad luck has snowballed from there.

Few owners were more insistent, or vocal, than Jones about players not protesting during the national anthem. (Never mind that Jones thinks so highly of the anthem that he couldn’t be bothered to take off his baseball hat, even after being reminded, during a ceremony to open training camp.)

Julio Jones becomes fastest ever to 10,000 career yards

Julio Jones becomes fastest ever to 10,000 career yards Julio Jones, seen here torching Tampa Bay, is the fastest receiver ever to 10,000 yards. Julio Jones is doing his best to establish himself as one of the greatest receivers in NFL history, and Sunday against Cleveland, he added another exhibit to his case. He’s just reached 10,000 career yards faster than any other receiver in NFL history. Needing just 13 yards to get to 10,000 yards in his career, Jones caught a 30-yard pass from Matt Ryan midway through the second quarter to get up and over the mark. As an added benefit, he scored a touchdown on the same drive several plays later.

NFL anthem protests: Cowboys owner Jerry Jones weighs in. NFL players on Sunday became engulfed in the controversy surrounding the national anthem, following President Donald Trump’ s comments at a campaign rally in Alabama on Friday which continued via Twitter throughout the

Jerry Jones stewardship of the Dallas Cowboys has led to unprecedented results and success for one of the most notable sports franchises in the world. Someone who is fallible, but so am I, Emmitt Smith. A man who came into the league and created a goal of becoming the NFL ' s all-time rushing

Yet a policy that would have allowed players to stay in the locker room during the anthem but required them to stand if they were on the field was tabled after heavy criticism, never to be raised again. A handful of players continue to protest and, when asked, the NFL says it is focusing its efforts on the players’ social justice efforts.

Jones didn’t fare any better with his foray into the midterm elections. He backed longtime Republican Rep. Pete Sessions, donating the maximum $2,700 to both his primary and general election campaigns. So did Jones’ wife, daughter and son.

Sessions, chair of the Rules Committee in the U.S. House of Representatives, was upset Tuesday by Colin Allred, a former linebacker with the Tennessee Titans.

But the biggest, and surely most stinging, losses for Jones are courtesy of his team.

The Cowboys have lurched their way to a 3-5 record and, at this rate, they’ll miss the playoffs for the seventh time since 2009. Their offense is abysmal, and Jones has had to give Jason Garrett those dreaded, in-season votes of confidence.

They’re so dysfunctional even Troy Aikman said they needed a total rebuild.

He’s had to miss games in ‘08, again in 2013 when his cancer returned, in 2017 (twice) and it recurred this season. But it appears that Remy has beaten the disease.

“I've heard Jerry say, 'OK, look, we're going to do it differently. I'm going to do it differently.' ... But it's the same. Nothing changes," the Hall of Fame quarterback said Tuesday in an interview with Dallas radio station 1310 The Ticket.

"And that to me is the bigger issue.”

Ouch.

You know who else has criticized Jones? Bryant, who the Cowboys parted ways with after last season. It’s not a stretch to say Dallas could use Bryant – Cole Beasley is your top receiver? Really? – but he’s landed in a much better spot, signing Wednesday with the Saints.

Those would be the same Saints with the second-best record in the NFC – and who visit the Cowboys on Nov. 29.

Winning has always meant everything to Jones. If only he could remember what it feels like.
