Cowboys | Jerry Jones optimistic on defense

Wed, 18 Jun 2014 15:14:53 -0700

Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones is convinced his team's defense has nowhere to go but up in 2014 despite losing DEs DeMarcus Ware and Jason Hatcher and LB Sean Lee (knee). The Cowboys finishes last in the league in yards allowed last season. "I can say it this year, we are better right now," Jones said. "And I think better on the field. We're certainly better on paper than we were at the end of the season last year. Not on paper at the beginning of the season last year, but on paper right now relative to how we ended up last year."

Cowboys | Jerry Jones admits it was hard to pass on Johnny Manziel

Sat, 07 Jun 2014 07:06:04 -0700

Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones admits it was tough to pass on QB Johnny Manziel in the NFL Draft. "Well, it was," Jones said. "Yes, it was. First of all, I couldn't believe he had fallen there. And secondly, we had spent a lot of time, I'd spent a lot of time. He's the kind of player that can be that kind of difference-maker. There's no doubt in my mind that he'll be a successful player. We have in Romo what I consider to be the better quarterback. But there's also the future, there's also insurance if you don't have him. If anybody could have adjusted to Manziel's style, we could have because we're a lot like that with Romo."

"There's no question when you are where we are on the cap, even though we've had some new cap space added, and you have a defensive player that's your highest paid defensive player, and he hasn't been on the field much the last two years, that has to be considered," Jones said. "You can't have it all."

Cowboys | Jerry Jones regrets the way he fired Tom Landry

Sun, 23 Feb 2014 15:53:49 -0800

Despite winning Super Bowls in 1992 and 1993 under his handpicked head coach, Jimmy Johnson, Dallas Cowboys owner/general manager Jerry Jones said he regrets immediately firing legendary Cowboys head coach Tom Landry after Jones purchased the team 25 years ago. Then-Cowboys owner H.R. Bum Bright offered to fire Landry before Jones took over, but Jones insisted he would be the one and wanted to look Landry in the eyes.

"If I had a chance to do it over again I would've waited a year and just got my feet on the ground a little bit more and probably just gone with the staff that we had and then later made the ultimate change that I made," Jones said.
