Jerry Jones' top gaffes - a retrospective

FOX Sports on MSN - NFL - 11 gaffes in Jerry Jones era - Number 1

What a douche. Nice retrospective, though!

Hard to argue with that math - HOWEVER, he spent 2 billion on plastic surgery, so he's actually in the hole.

Danny Snyder is also making a killing with the Skins, but that doesn't mean he's uncapable of making bone-headed decisions. He sure takes some criticism.

Meanwhile, it's too bad that Dallas couldn't get Chad Johnson before the trade deadline. Apparently, stacking up as many #1 WR's as you can is the way to win football games...

Re: Jerry Jones' top gaffes - a retrospective

you know i was really thinking there was going to be some worse stuff than that . . . the michael irvin cover up is clearly bad in some many ways, the other stuff just seemed to be calculated business decisions that went wrong, which happens. it takes a while to find the right coach and quarterback.

what i really hold JJ to is how he treated emmit towards the end of his career, i understand its a business but emmit did alot for the boys and deserved better, i.e. a contract where emmit could decide to retire a boy like we did with d green. every now and then a player comes along and deserves to be treated better than the "business" dictates, emmit was one of them as was darrell green.

go skins!!!

ps - and JJ lying about pacman not drinking. etc is very bad in my eyes too. just like belicheck and his whole "we had a different interpretation of the rules" bs. be a man and accept the facts, dont try to wiggle and escape culpability. mistakes will happen, acknowledge it and learn from them.

You make it sound like he did something great here. Over a 20 year period the franchise went up 10x. He had nothing to do with this, it is the NFL and how good of a job it has done marketing itself. Other franchises are worth alot more now then they were 20 years ago. You make it sound like none of them have gone up in value in the past 20 years.

Also 3 championships in a 20 year period is good, but once again other teams have done this also. And he had nothing to do with those championships, it was Johnson that built that team and is the reason they won those championships. JJ's ego couldn't handle the fact that Johnson was getting the credit and got rid of him and took control until he ran the team into the ground and decided to bring in Parcells who did a good job of rebuilding the team. But JJ is in control once again and the downward spiral has once again begun.

At least Snyder seems to have learned that it is better for him to just sign the checks and leave the football decisions to those that know what they are doing. It didn't take him 20 years to get there, thou JJ still hasn't learned.

This makes me so happy! Jones is a fool with zero moral fiber, and his team is a total circus. Joke.

And apparently so are his fans. They all make money, are you getting a cut? I thought being a fan was about winning football games not the owners bank account.

You are right on the money Jake. People like sandtrapp don't seem to get it. He takes up for JJ like he owes him money.

Re: Jerry Jones' top gaffes - a retrospective

Well I learned today why he did not suspend Pacman which was maybe a smart move. If they susp. Pacman they owed Tenn. the 5th round pick and by letting the NFL susp. pacman they now owe Dallas two draft picks. That might not be all right but it goes something like that.

Re: Jerry Jones' top gaffes - a retrospective

I understand what you're saying Firstdown but short of murdering Romo I doubt Jones would of suspended him anyway.
