Jerry could be in Canton one day

Cowboys owner Jerry Jones could find himself in the Pro Football Hall of Fame one day. He has been an innovator for the league as well as a savvy businessman since buying the Cowboys in 1989 for $140 million. (Forbes now estimates that the Cowboys are the second-most valuable franchise in the world, worth $1.81 billion.)

And his Cowboys also have won three Super Bowl titles.

 “I like to think there is time for those kinds of things [like the Hall of Fame] after you’ve finished,” Jones, 68, said. “I don’t go there too much. Where I do go is I’d like to win that fourth Super Bowl. I’d really do whatever it takes to have that.”

Jones entered the Texas Sports Hall of Fame a couple of years ago.

Lee: Several owners are in the Hall of Fame. Few of them were "football guys."

Further, like it or not, Jerry is a "football guy." Not only did he play the game himself at a high level but he's been an NFL general manager for the better part of two decades. I don't always agree with his decisionmaking but he's assembled better talent than a lot of other teams out there, all of whom are run by "football guys."

I'm sorry, but I can't let this one go. Jerry in the Hall of Fame?? For what?? Everyone knows the superbowls were won because of Jimmy Johnson and his coaching staff and players he assembled. He was the GM back then. Jerry has been since Jimmy left and I ask you: How many other NFL cities would trade their GM for Jerry the GM? He's a very good businessman, yes. However, to be in the Hall, you need to be a "football guy". Jerry has never been that obviously.
