Jerry Jones needs to listen more in-house

IRVING, Texas – One of the more interesting things Jerry Jones said on KRLD-FM this morning was how he plans to address some of the issues with the Cowboys going forward.
“I’m going to spend a lot of time visiting with people outside of the organization that I have a lot of confidence in that will help us evaluate how to do the things that I know what our fans want to do, and that’s not be sitting here at .500,” Jones said. “There are a lot of teams that haven’t been at .500, but nobody hasn’t been at .500 and spent as much cash as I’m spending.”
Jones’ circle of trust includes former coaches and personnel people in the NFL that he turns to at different times of a season as sounding boards. It’s good to have sounding boards, but they shouldn’t be more influential than the people inside the building.
Why doesn’t Jones listen to the people who are inside the building more?
They have followed this team more closely than anybody else outside the building. They have followed the college talent more closely than anybody outside the building.
|Ed Werder joins Galloway & Company and points out that Jerry Jones has still not confirmed that Jason Garrett and his staff will be returning as the Cowboys coaches for the 2013 season.
Jones might not believe he is doing a disservice to his staff by saying such things, but when the first person he credits for picking Murray two years ago is Barry Switzer, it’s just wrong.
