Jerry Jones says he dreams of linebackers like 49ers' Willis and Bowman. Will Carter and Lee work?

Jerry Jones laid out his vision of what he wants the Cowboys’ inside linebackers to look like – fast from sideline to sideline, like Patrick Willis and NaVorro Bowman of the San Francisco 49ers.

“We all watched Bowman and Willis out there, and boy, did those guys make a difference,” Jones said this week in an interview with the NFL Network at the Senior Bowl in Mobile, Ala.

Jones said he’d love to see if Bruce Carter, the Cowboys’ second-round pick a year ago, can bring that kind of speed to the field for the Cowboys to pair with Sean Lee.

“This is my dream,” Jones said. “It’s not exactly the prototype for the makeup of the two guys you’d want in the middle – you might want more of a thumper, a big guy, to go along with Sean Lee. But if we can keep both those guys out there, adjust our defense, we might be going toward Bowman and Willis area like they have in San Francisco.”

Lee played in 15 games for the Cowboys and led the team in tackles, plus tying for the team lead in interceptions with four. Carter played in 10 games, but mainly on special teams, as he came back from knee surgery in December 2010.

“It’s amazing what Bruce Carter was able to do relative to the time you assess when you have that kind of injury,” Jones told Dallas reporters on Monday at the Senior Bowl. “He was outstanding in his rehab.”

What I don't understand is why there is this reference of fighter Jets now. I mean, the reference for Winnipeg Jets was not of fighting jets but of commercial jets. Winnipeg was known for the gateway to the west.

I agree with your idea.You look like very talented.It is very happy to meet you. Thank you!

That's the kind of nose tackle you need first and foremost to be able to run a 3-4 defense you guys are still trying to run. A guy who clog up the middle and can keep at least two inside offensive linemen off your inside linebackers. Geez..!! Who's running your scouting department?

Great to be able to read this quality stuff from here in Holland. Many Thanks

Carlos do you have your own personal blow up Jerry doll? N/M please don't answer that honestly...LOL
You sir are an embarrassment to your peers. Are you allowed to write about anything outside of JerryWorld? Better check with Jerry before you reply,lol

What will make those guys better is Bigger and Better guys in front of them.

JJ = Dallas CB Walking HC.

I dream of having an owner not coming down to the sidelines to tell our coach the Giants won and not to play Romo. I am sure Coach Landry would have appreciated Tex and Clint coming down to give him scoring updates.

Who cares if you spend money, if you spend it unwise that make being cheap smart. (Hello Mr. Scandrick).

"Jerry says" - who cares? It turns my stomach that the media is even giving this idiot any face time anymore. Isn't it clear that Jerry Jones has no clue and therefore what he says is irrelevent?

I gotta agree with Glenn. Its starts in the trenches. One thing that would make a drastic improvment in this defense would be a guy like Woodfork or Ngati in the middle, then moving Ratliff to end. Not sure if a guy like that is out there but its what we need.

Very well share! Keep sharing more informative stuff like that.

JARRHHY IS THE BIGGEST IDIOT IN FOOTBALL.

@Glenn Guillory: Jerry's running the scouting department, remember? He's already come out and told us nothing will change. He is GM, HC,CEO and head moron.

Jerry..you need big guys for your inside linebacker spots. Guys geared to stop the run. But most of all you need to take a look at the big guy at nose tackle for the Ravens. That's the kind of nose tackle you need first and foremost to be able to run a 3-4 defense you guys are still trying to run. A guy who clog up the middle and can keep at least two inside offensive linemen off your inside linebackers. Geez..!! Who's running your scouting department?
