[SPORTS]: NFL: Cowboys’ Owner Jerry Jones Says He’s Doing Some of His ‘Best Work’ as GM

No surprise here, Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones thinks he’s doing a spectacular job as their general manager as well. While many people wish Jones would step aside and let someone else take over the reigns, it looks like he has no plans on doing so.

“The facts are that I really do think the way things have rolled out that I’m getting to do some of the best work that I’ve done, relatively speaking in my career of these last several years,” Jones said on KRLD-FM, via the Fort Worth Star-Telegram.

The Cowboys haven’t made the playoffs since 2009 despite enormous resources and a consistently mediocre NFC East. Jones the general manager helped the team incur salary-cap penalties from the NFL, and he overpaid in-house talent like Doug Free,Miles Austin, Jay Ratliff and Anthony Spencer. This year’s draft class looks solid, but last year’s No. 6 overall pick Morris Claiborne repeatedly has been benched.

Jones the general manager also decided to fire Rob Ryan and hire Monte Kiffin as defensive coordinator. This Cowboys defense could break the all-time record for yards allowed in a season. With coach Jason Garrett apparently ensconced in his job, we might not see much change this upcoming offseason.

The 71-year-old confirmed he plans to own the team and pick the players for another 15 to 20 years.

Be sure to tune into week 12 NFL Sunday as the Cowboys take on the Giants home at 4:30pm!
