That said, Jerry Jones is one of the most hard-headed owners out there. The problem is, it's because of this that Jerry hurts the team.
1) We can't have a top coach. We could never have a Belichick because they would constantly clash when Jerry offered his own coaching opinions (and it's happened before...i.e. Johnson and Parcells).
2) Tony Romo. I'm not going to beat a dead horse, but Jerry is such a fan of Tony that we've passed over opportunities at a lot of better QB's over the years.
3) Jerry in the drafting room. We've had a lot of bad draft picks and part of it is because we have a GM that doesn't truly understand the game making picks for the team he also owns. The Patriots don't have to worry about this and as a result, make pretty dang good picks.
So, in a sense, you're right on point. Jerry's failure to delegate to people who know the game a lot more than he does is one of the main differences between this team in Dallas and the one you have up in Boston.
