Jerry Jones said he is doing his best work now and plans on remaining owner/GM the next 15-20 years

A day after giving Jason Garrett a vote of confidence as head coach, Jerry Jones gave himself one as owner/general manager.

"The facts are that I really do think the way things have rolled out that I'm getting to do some of the best work that I've done, relatively speaking in my career of these last several years," Jones said on his weekly radio show on KRLD-FM on Friday.
Since Jones bought the team in 1989, the Cowboys have won three Super Bowl titles. But they are 133-133 since 1997, with six playoff appearances and only one playoff win.
Dallas has not been to the playoffs since 2009, going 21-21 in Garrett's three full seasons as head coach.
Jones said the criticism by the media and the fans is "fair." 
Jones, 71, was asked to confirm a CBS News story of earlier this week that he plans on continuing in his current role as owner/GM for the next 15-20 years. 

"Of course, I said it, and I really meant that and just think about that a minute: Why wouldn't you?" Jones said. "One of the reasons that I to some degree have taken the risks that I have over the years and kind of had the professional life that I followed is so that I get to decide when enough is enough. God willing. So I do get to decide that. It's a certain part of working for yourself if you still are standing when the time comes. So I get to really make that decision, and I want to make it in a way that I think is in the best interest of the team, franchise and really our fans. A lot of people just need to hear me say I know it's in our best interest for us to operate the way we have. It's unfortunate that over these last five or six years that we haven't had a few things turn right for us at the end of the season, needing to win one of out of two games to get into the playoffs, having a healthy quarterback, all of those things. But we've been a lot closer than it seems."
