Jerry Jones, owner of the Dallas Cowboys, thinks he’s a doctor. Despite QB Tony Romo not having completed his MRI yet, when asked whether or not Romo would play against the Arizone Cardinals next week, Jones replied, “He can play.”
It’s clearly evident that Jones is closer to the devil than a doctor, as Christian has often thought when considering the health of his players. All Jones cares about is money and winning. He acts as though he cares about Romo, but if that were the case, he would take into consideration Romo’s future health. Romo is coming off a back surgery, and if he suffers further damage, then it could lead to longer-term pain.
Jones has proven time and time again that he’s not a good decision maker. After the Cowboys won back-to-back Super Bowls in the early 1990s, he fired Head Coach Jimmy Johnson, one of the best coaches of all time. He did this because he felt Johnson had too much control over team decisions. And most recently, despite Head Coach Jason Garrett denying this, it’s widely believed that Jones told Garrett to put Romo back in the game despite having recently suffered an injury.
The Cowboys might be having a good year to this point, but as long as Jerry Jones is the owner, they won’t win another Super Bowl. There are too many poor decisions to overcome.
