How Jerry Jones Will Ruin Another Dallas Cowboys Season

At first glance, when Dallas Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo went down with another back injury during the team’s preseason game against the Seattle Seahawks, it looked like “America’s Team” lost the 2016 season for good.

Despite owner/General Manager Jerry Jones’s best ego-driven attempts at destroying their roster, the Cowboys have built a team capable of contending in the NFC (credit actually goes to Jones’s son, Stephen, and his team of scouts and executives) — if an above-average starting quarterback remains on the roster.

As it turns out, the Cowboys look better off without Romo in their lineup; under the leadership of Dak Prescott, the Cowboys blazed to an 11-2 record, and it looked like things were good in Texas. Remember that while Dallas has the premier offensive line in the NFL, that wouldn’t actually be the case if Jones had his way during the 2014 NFL Draft.
