Column by JEAN-JACQUES TAYLOR / The Dallas Morning News |

If the Dallas Cowboys end this season just like the last 12 seasons have ended, then it's time for Jerry Jones to admit his way isn't working.

Then he must make some changes.

He can start by firing the head coach and giving the new coach the same amount of control he gave Bill Parcells.

It's the only way this franchise can return to the glory days, because as long as Jerry remains the face of the franchise, the coach will never have the autonomy he needs to succeed.

Jerry had the right idea when he hired Parcells and essentially let him run the franchise. That's how Jerry ended up with a 13-3 record and the No.1 seed in the NFC, even though Wade Phillips coached the team.

The problem isn't that Parcells left, it's that Jerry let all of the infrastructure leave with him.

This team needs leadership and discipline and accountability. The only way it can get it is for Jerry to move back into the shadows and let someone else be the face of the franchise.

To do so, Jerry must humble himself and accept the truth. No other good owner would let a GM, who hasn't won a playoff game in 13 seasons, survive.

There's no question Jerry wants to win. But does he want it badly enough to change his ways?

We're about to find out.

Yep another one of TR1's post that talks of nothing new.......This same story has been going around for years......Be it Washington or Dallas

I didn't write the article, Einstein.

It's written by a respected pukeville commentator.

Nah.

At least for a four year period, Jones let Parcells run the show and bring Dallas back to an annual playoff contender.

Washington? Not so much.

As bad as both owners are, Snyder is worse, by far, up to this point in both of their respective careers as owners.

And at least for a four year period Snyder let Gibbs run the show and bring the Redskins back to some stability as well as playoff appearances and even a playoff win, as well as give the roster both talent and character...

The fact is that Danny and Jerry only want to win if they get the credit. Jerry fired Jimmy Johnson when it was obvious they had a dynasty team and would probably win several more SBs; all because he wasn't getting the credit.

What they don't understand is if they let football men make the decisions, they would get the credit. Look at Bob Kraft; he doesn't make one football decision, however he is always at the top of every list for best owner in football.

These guys are around football guys and their egos simply won't allow that they don't know just as much on how to run an NFL franchise.

It is sad yet funny at the same time.

I anxious to see your owner without a CBA. Right now owners are OBLIGATED to spend more than 50% on players.

When Laurie walks, it isn't his shoes that are squeaking.

;)

Your roster will have C- talent for decades to come.
