If you put a value on him of that aggregate number than we agree but if you were Jerry Jones with that team, what would you have done differently? Jerry Jones biggest failure has been his inability to find quality coaches because he is such a control freak but the talent has been there if you believe the expert pundits.
12thman, for the record, the Cowpukes are my most hated team in all of sports. I'm also a SF Giants fan, and I hate the Cowchips more than I hate the Dodgers, and that ain't easy. Jerry Jones, for the last 15 years, has driven that franchise straight into the ground. I still have issues with him flat out firing Tom Landry. Yes, I hate the Cowpunks, but I give respect where it's due.
Now, as a lifelong 49ers fan, I enjoy seeing the Cowgirls be a mediocre to horrible team. The more they miss the playoffs, the happier I am. Truth be told, I'm glad Jerry gave Romo all that money - they will continue to be in salary cap hell for at least the next 4-5 years, if not longer. That team has had some talent - just not at the QB spot. How many years has Romo started for that team? 8 so far. How many playoff wins? 1 ... 1 measly playoff win. That team is rapidly turning into a disaster area, and I for one couldn't be happier.
