I think this was a great move by Jones...but in the interest of full disclosure, I root as hard for the Cowboys to lose as I do for the Bills to win.

I've hated all his teams, but I've gained a lot of respect for Johnson over the years.  Jones?  lol.

For having all of that dough, there is a lot of bad plastic surgery going on with that snare drum face.....

But of course we all know that firing Chan Gailey was the biggest mistake that Jones ever made....right?

People get what they deserve.  I hated the arrogance of Johnson back then, but he was right in creating a fantastic tough team.  Jones ego has gotten in the way of his success.  If that self inflated pompous son of a gun would have just let the football operations be managed by someone else, they probably would have won 4-5 super bowls.

Jones is so colored by his ego, he just won't accept he needs to stay on the business and marketing side of the business.  This is where he excels.  Great CEO's know their limitations and circle themselves that have certain specialties.  An avg. of 8-8 for 15 years is a proper curse for the team that demolished us twice.

Since I can't stand the "how bout the Cowboys" I love Jerry as long as he is the GM, I never need to see them in the playoffs or at best they are 1 and done.
