Thanks for checking in for this Dallas Cowboys Get Real chat to cover the wreck that was their 34-18 loss at home against the Chicago Bears on Monday night. Don't worry, it was actually much worse than the final score indicated.
Post your comment underneath and we can begin a discourse.
HOW MUCH OF THIS IS ON THE OWNER?:
The easy, fun, thing to do after every Dallas Cowboys loss is blame it all on Jerry Jones.
The argument certainly has merit.
The Dallas Cowboys are his toy, I mean, team. Sorry. He has the final say on every major decision regarding coaches and player acquisition.
He brought in Jason Garrett from the Dolphins in 2007 to groom him to become his coaching genius creation.
Is it Jerry's fault Dez Bryant and Kevin Ogletree goofs killed the Cowboys' chances against the Bears?
Is it Jerry's fault his QB throws to the other team?
Is it Jerry's fault the interior of the offensive line continually can't block?
Is it Jerry's fault the team decided collectively not to cover Brandon Marshall?
Is it Jerry's fault Victor Butler let go of a certain third down sack of Jay Cutler that led to Bears' points on that drive?
THE TRUTH: The answer to every one of these specifics is no. Jerry can't catch the ball, pass the ball, block defenders, tackle runners, cover receivers, etc.
Jerry may not be responsible for these indiviual shortcomings, but he is accountable.
