The main reason why the Cowboys continue to fail every season is their owner Jerry Jones. No, the polarizing owner isn’t on the field when they are blowing it in the playoffs. But he is the most hands-on owner in the NFL and that’s hurting his franchise. This isn’t new because he’s been breaking ‘America’s Team since he took over in 1989.
From firing Tom Landry to retaining Jason Garrett, the list continues. Meanwhile, he has no moral compass as he showed when he signed Greg Hardy and kept Ezekiel Elliot. The franchise has become a reflection of its owner because it has a lot of money but it won’t have a legacy to show for it (via Bleacher Report).
