Can Jerry Jones Please Stop Talking About, Well, Everything For A Few Days?

Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones is a very hands-on owner. A very, very, veeeeeeery hands-on owner. While the owners of most professional sports teams prefer to sit back and play the background while their teams perform on the court or field, Jones enjoys being involved in every single aspect of his team. If a quarterback change needs to be made, he’s the first to suggest it. If a coach isn’t leading his team well enough, he’s quick to fire him. And if anyone wants to know anything about the Cowboys, all they have to do is request an interview with Jones. It seems like he doesn’t turn anyone down when it comes to interviews. He loves to be the center of attention.

That’s particularly evident right now as every single time that we turn around Jones seems to be talking about something in relation to the Cowboys. Whether it’s their shoddy defense or their inability to win big games, Jones has an opinion on everything and he’s not afraid to express it. But his act is starting to get tired. And truthfully, it’s beginning to look like the Cowboys are never going to make another Super Bowl push if Jones doesn’t learn how to back away and take some of the spotlight off of himself. Former players like Will Allen have come out and talked about how Jones’ presence creates a tense atmosphere in the locker room. But for whatever reason, Jones continues to stick his nose into things each and every week.

The Cowboys are Jerry Jones’ team. He pays the bills and keeps the lights on inside of their stadium. So he deserves to be as involved as he wants to be with the team. But if he wants his team to be successful—and we assume that he does—he needs to learn that he can’t release a statement about everything that happens to them. He may think he’s just being supportive and doing what’s best for the Cowboys. But in reality, he’s micromanaging them and making it difficult for them to find success. And until he learns to—let’s be frank here—shut the hell up and get out of the way, the Cowboys are going to continue to struggle.
