Jerry Jones says he has had “50 concussions”


During one of the segments in the debut of Costas Tonight on NBC Sports Network, Cowboys owner Jerry Jones chimed in on a topic that had been addressed before he took the stage.

Jones, who played college football at Arkansas, said that he has had “50 concussions.”  He then joked that, if he hadn’t suffered so many blows to the head, he would have been the President of the U.S. instead of the owner of the Cowboys.

Jones quickly pointed out he wasn’t trying to make light of the challenges players are facing.  Still, some may believe that the remark came off as a bit insensitive to the plight of the men who are suffering the effects of a career of concussions.

On that point, my friend Rodney Harrison passionately addressed the dilemma that players face on head injuries in a separate portion of the show, urging Peyton Manning to walk away from the game while he still can.

It’s worth the time it takes to watch it, and then some.

    No, the players making you millions of dollars are getting concussions. You’re getting plastic surgery.

  2. roamingabriel says: Feb 3, 2012 12:21 AM

    That explains his personnel decisions!!!

  3. bobhk says: Feb 3, 2012 12:22 AM

    Oooh Jerry makes it toooo easy!! 🙂

  4. terrellochouno says: Feb 3, 2012 12:23 AM

    That explains a lot.

  5. catquick says: Feb 3, 2012 12:23 AM

    That explains a lot

  6. johnnyb216 says: Feb 3, 2012 12:24 AM

    Looks like somebody’s jockeying for position here.

  7. tinopuno says: Feb 3, 2012 12:24 AM

    If Jones wasn’t such a despicable human being you could almost feel sorry for the attention-driven child that he really is.

  8. pnut87 says: Feb 3, 2012 12:25 AM

    Ha ha ha… Too easy…

  9. donny1rodriguez says: Feb 3, 2012 12:26 AM

    “I wish like hell they’d hit me in the head. A helmet-to-helmet hit. I want one of those.” – Jerry Jones, 1964

  10. jimmygrahamchrisivory says: Feb 3, 2012 12:26 AM

    That explains all of his terrible decisions as GM.

  11. nemyx1 says: Feb 3, 2012 12:26 AM

    It all makes sense now.

  12. blacnsilvr says: Feb 3, 2012 12:27 AM

    OHHHHHH!, So that must be the reason for the “50 FACELIFTS”

  13. hannahsdaddy says: Feb 3, 2012 12:27 AM

    Ich . . . Rodney Harrison

  14. matthewcarlson1 says: Feb 3, 2012 12:28 AM

    Ok Jerry… since your brain would look like a scrambled egg if that was true, I believe you.

  15. goldrush36 says: Feb 3, 2012 12:28 AM

    This explains a lot. WOW

  16. packerman1968 says: Feb 3, 2012 12:29 AM

    What a “A” hole.

  17. commonsensedude says: Feb 3, 2012 12:29 AM

    Wow! Jerry Jones had a bunch of concussions in his younger years, long before we understood that repeated concussions can cause brain injury and flaws in the ability to think logically.

    Now I finally think I understand why he believes that he’s a good NFL General Manager.

  18. donniebmc says: Feb 3, 2012 12:31 AM

    God help us if Jerry Jones became president…

  19. cavredleg15 says: Feb 3, 2012 12:31 AM

    Mr. Jones.
    I will pay you my yearly “salary”(pension from the VA) to receive one tenth of the cost of your new stadium……… if I can give you a concussion that is legitimately observed and diagnosed by a doctor.
    Once those baselines are set it should help your players right?

    I also played ”amateur” football from age 7 to 22. After college I enlisted in the Army. I have no idea how many concussions I had when I played football. I lost consciousness 4 times in 3 months when I was deployed in Iraq… I’m pretty damn sure those were concussions… so If Jerry had 50… how many did I have? I’m sure it’s less than than JJ…

  20. 10yardslant says: Feb 3, 2012 12:32 AM

    This explains why Jerry sucks each year drafting. Too many blows to the head.

  21. seanx40 says: Feb 3, 2012 12:32 AM

    HE just makes it too easy. Not even really worth taking the shot.

  22. 420hippy says: Feb 3, 2012 12:32 AM

    This explain so damn much!…

  23. b1rdbath says: Feb 3, 2012 12:33 AM

    Wow…….hahahaha….that headline is so ripe for comment….I can’t even chose which reply to use

  24. 7pints says: Feb 3, 2012 12:33 AM

    Believe that!!!

  25. thekingofnewyork says: Feb 3, 2012 12:34 AM

    With the way he runs his team I don’t doubt it at all

  26. stealthscorpio says: Feb 3, 2012 12:34 AM

    That explains a lot…

  27. rcunningham says: Feb 3, 2012 12:35 AM

    If Jerry had 50 concussions, he’d be a braindead vegetable, let alone anyone with sense on how to run the current Dallas Cowboys.

    Wait a second…

  28. aequitas83 says: Feb 3, 2012 12:35 AM

    He failed to mention that most of them came from banging his head against a wall while watching his team.

  29. devrick says: Feb 3, 2012 12:35 AM

    I believe Jerry.

  30. ljtola says: Feb 3, 2012 12:35 AM

    “Jerry Jones says he has had 50 concussions”

    That explains a lot…

  31. buzzbissinger says: Feb 3, 2012 12:35 AM

    And is this what qualifies him to be a GM?

  32. Dam0wned says: Feb 3, 2012 12:36 AM

    Well that certainly explains a few things.

  33. kilo0986 says: Feb 3, 2012 12:37 AM

    Lmao, Ladies and gentlemen the owner of “Americas team”.

  34. surfwater says: Feb 3, 2012 12:37 AM

    49 too many head injuries is why Jerry Jones keeps his one-half of a quarterback Romo.

  35. folkcrusader says: Feb 3, 2012 12:38 AM

    50 concussions, that explains quite a lot there Jer.

  36. whichiwhichwawa says: Feb 3, 2012 12:39 AM

    that almost explains everything!

  37. grandpoopah says: Feb 3, 2012 12:39 AM

    Jones may have confused “concussions” and “concubines” again.

  38. burgundyngold21 says: Feb 3, 2012 12:41 AM

    This explains a lot with the current state of the cowgirls.


  39. coleman121280 says: Feb 3, 2012 12:42 AM

    He knew what he said would be taken wrong. Talk about passive aggressive macaroni Gabroni…

  40. Justin says: Feb 3, 2012 12:44 AM

    I think he meant facelifts

  41. spytdi says: Feb 3, 2012 12:46 AM

    Cowboy fan here; what a dumbass. Shut your mouth Jerry.

  42. geetee52 says: Feb 3, 2012 12:50 AM

    In a world where things made sense, Mr. Jones claims to personal concussions would not be news 3 days before a Super Bowl that was determined by playoffs his team did not qualify for.

  43. brenenostler says: Feb 3, 2012 12:52 AM

    Well that explains a lot

  44. ninerfan49 says: Feb 3, 2012 12:53 AM

    That would explain a lot!

  45. mataug says: Feb 3, 2012 12:53 AM

    Looking at his GM decisions, am I the only one who is not surprised by this ?

  46. allsportsnyfan says: Feb 3, 2012 12:53 AM

    No wonder he still thinks Romo is a real QB. Those blows damaged his knucklehead, and he’s making irrational decisions. He should see Dr. Phil.

  47. ttommytom says: Feb 3, 2012 12:55 AM

    That pretty much explains everything.

    This will be fun to read all the comments.

  48. bignuke says: Feb 3, 2012 12:55 AM

    Well, that explains everything!!!

  49. nepatriots128154 says: Feb 3, 2012 12:56 AM

    Well, the Cowboys’ recent draft record certainly supports his claim.

  50. doe22us says: Feb 3, 2012 12:56 AM

    Jeez, I wonder if that number matches up with his botox procedures.

  51. tonystrong says: Feb 3, 2012 12:57 AM

    The fact of the matter is this, these guys know the effects these hits and still play. Football has never been bigger in this country, not only in the number of fans but also in the number of players at all levels. This problem isn’t going anywhere but the fact is this is the game. People are going to play it not matter what the consequences are, just like people are going to smoke no matter what the consequences are!! I believe the NFL should take care of players after their careers are over but with that said, I still think the NFL is a play at your own risk league!

    As far as Rodney’s comments, it’s easy to say tell someone else to hang up the cleats. I wonder if Rodney had an injury that a doctor cleared him to play with if he would have quit while he was still an all pro? Doubtful if you ask me. These guys are warriors and have egos. And Peyton Manning, being an all world, super bowl winning, record breaking stud QB has one of the biggest in the world. Once it’s over, it’s over forever. Rodney saying Peyton should quit is a joke. If Peyton is truly medically cleared to play and isn’t seriously at risk to endanger his life then he should play. If a doctor seriously told him he could play next Sunday if he needed to, why should this man walk away when last time we seen him he was all pro? Rodney just loves to hear himself talk!

  52. goforthanddie says: Feb 3, 2012 1:01 AM

    That would explain a lot.

  53. thankheavenfornumberseven says: Feb 3, 2012 1:01 AM

    That explains it.

  54. effjohntaylornorelation says: Feb 3, 2012 1:02 AM

    Both of the men referenced in this article like to hear themselves speak way too much. No thank you.

  55. lostsok says: Feb 3, 2012 1:03 AM

    Based on many of his football decisions…I can believe he’s had brain damage.

  56. Mr. Wright 212 says: Feb 3, 2012 1:04 AM

    No one disputes that he has had 50 concussions. He acts like it. The dispute comes in with HOW he received them. We all know he played football at Ark., but I’d be willing to bet it was from banging his head on the walls at Texas Stadium and the House that Eli Built after every frustrating loss since Arrington ended Aikman’s career.

  57. canadianvikingfaniii says: Feb 3, 2012 1:05 AM

    No Jerrah you are just stupid. Concussions aren’t to blame for your poor GM, uh, owner…. Both.

  58. ynot1381 says: Feb 3, 2012 1:07 AM

    This explains why he is such an effective, quiet, soft spoken GM.

  59. slugbaitspace says: Feb 3, 2012 1:08 AM

    This explains EVERYTHING.

    Well, actually, it doesn’t explain Al Davis…

  60. bigjdve says: Feb 3, 2012 1:11 AM

    His concussions would also explain some of the things that he has done.

  61. harbaughscryingagain says: Feb 3, 2012 1:11 AM

    You can still run for president, Jerry. You after 50 concussions would fit in just fine with the other Republican candidates.

    And you’d be just as sensitive to the misfortune of others….

  62. jc327 says: Feb 3, 2012 1:12 AM

    Well hell, that explains everything.

  63. dcbraun1 says: Feb 3, 2012 1:13 AM

    Alright, Jerry. You’re excuses for not hiring a GM are bordering unethical.

  64. slugbaitspace says: Feb 3, 2012 1:13 AM

    …or Daniel Snyder.

  65. obamablowz says: Feb 3, 2012 1:16 AM

    Oh boy, can’t wait to read the comments on this one!!!!

  66. slugbaitspace says: Feb 3, 2012 1:16 AM

    …or Jim Irsay’s tweets.

  67. gavriloprincip33 says: Feb 3, 2012 1:18 AM

    Well that explains everything…

    Apparently, being concussed results in making poor football decisions and generally acting like a buffoon!

  68. sparty13 says: Feb 3, 2012 1:18 AM

    Well, that answers a lot of questions…

  69. lucimorland says: Feb 3, 2012 1:21 AM

    It shows.

  70. oldcracker says: Feb 3, 2012 1:22 AM

    50 concussions…boy, that answers a lot!

  71. CowboyErik says: Feb 3, 2012 1:24 AM

    50 concussions and he would be dead, jeeezzz, I say lay off the sauce before interviews!

  72. kd75 says: Feb 3, 2012 1:24 AM

    Jerry Jones has had 50 concussions…Yea that sounds about right.

    But the first one occured the day before he fired Tom Landry. Second one was the day before he fired Jimmy Johnson. I can’t explain the other 48 concussions.

    Thumbs up Cowpoke fans!

  73. rezdawg says: Feb 3, 2012 1:25 AM

    I’d like to give him #51.

  74. brianbowman16 says: Feb 3, 2012 1:25 AM

    well, that explains giving up a 1st round pick for Roy Williams.

    We LOVE Brandon Pettigrew!
    Thanks for giving us the pick to get him buddy!

  75. hedleykow says: Feb 3, 2012 1:25 AM

    Jones has had 50 concussions.

    Romney pays 50% tax rate.


  76. mpc5150 says: Feb 3, 2012 1:26 AM

    Well, he should be more careful when he’s drinking out of his toilet bowl…

  77. jimmysimpson55 says: Feb 3, 2012 1:31 AM

    I think Jerry meant he had “50 Facelifts”

  78. freedomispopular says: Feb 3, 2012 1:33 AM

    Considering your mental state, Jerry…we’re really not surprised…

  79. kingdm8 says: Feb 3, 2012 1:45 AM

    Well, that explains a lot.

  80. pooflingingmonkey says: Feb 3, 2012 1:47 AM

    Almost as many concussions as face lifts.

  81. fijabbersman345 says: Feb 3, 2012 1:49 AM

    He obviously had a head injury significant enough to affect his counting ability…

  82. ajgreenhof says: Feb 3, 2012 1:51 AM

    Well that explains a lot.

  83. alonestartexan says: Feb 3, 2012 1:52 AM

    THAT explains the current state of the Cowboys.

  84. sbellare3 says: Feb 3, 2012 1:56 AM

    Explains his success as a GM lately

  85. 92and94and51and56 says: Feb 3, 2012 1:56 AM

    Oh…well, that explains everything.

  86. spartytime says: Feb 3, 2012 1:57 AM

    no wonder…thats why he makes so many stupid decisions…

  87. savagenation2011 says: Feb 3, 2012 1:59 AM

    Well that explains a lot of things……..

  88. jabroni1 says: Feb 3, 2012 2:00 AM

    I have never been a harrison fan but after watching this I have a new found respect for him. Nice to see him get “real” for once.

  89. hoodheisman says: Feb 3, 2012 2:00 AM

    I guess if I had 50 concussions, I wouldn’t grasp the concept of a GM either…

  90. shoeflypie says: Feb 3, 2012 2:01 AM

    50 concussions during a college career based on his age would have been better than one per game. The guy is delusional, and probably is insensitive to the true plight of those suffering long-term consequences of concussions. Keep the guy away from the mike (and cameras).

  91. imaduffer says: Feb 3, 2012 2:04 AM

    WTF? Think I’ll go watch the “Twilight Zone.”

  92. justbhouse2 says: Feb 3, 2012 2:04 AM

    So that was a relapse when you popped off your mouth and pushed Jimmy Johnson out the door.

  93. ibreathefootball says: Feb 3, 2012 2:05 AM

    Bill Parcells concussed him all 50 times once he heard the choice of words Jones used 2 years ago.

  94. highwaiianjahwaiian says: Feb 3, 2012 2:09 AM

    THIS EXPLAINS OH SO MUCH ABOUT THOSE GOOD OLE COWBOYS!!! Jerry Jones..and these all occurred in the late nineties and the early two thousands!!

  95. tatum064 says: Feb 3, 2012 2:20 AM

    “he has had “50 concussions…

    but a b*tch ain’t one.”

  96. psdaleno says: Feb 3, 2012 2:26 AM

    Maybe one more helmet to the head can unstretch his face back to normal. BOINK!

  97. ironworker329 says: Feb 3, 2012 2:26 AM

    That explains the way the cowboys are run! Maybe he needs another to knock some sense into him and hire a G.M.. Lol!
    As a Giants fan I love Jerrah!

  98. briscocountyjr says: Feb 3, 2012 2:27 AM

    Those “thoughts” are so bad it unfortunately reveals the state of the organization— and we all knew about the fanbase!

  99. damnyoulinelliot says: Feb 3, 2012 2:32 AM

    Jerry must’ve had all of those concussions since January 28, 1996 — the Cowboys’ last appearance in the Super Bowl.

  100. uniballout says: Feb 3, 2012 2:36 AM

    I believe Jerrah. Though all those concussions didn’t stem from his college days. More likely, they came from all the facepalms while watching Romo blow a game.

  101. promickey says: Feb 3, 2012 2:48 AM

    Jones, who played college football at Arkansas, said that he has had “50 concussions.”
    __________________________________Wow, this explains why Jerry is a delusional Dallas Cowboy General Manager

  102. chilomane says: Feb 3, 2012 2:56 AM

    That explains it all!

  103. cliffordc05 says: Feb 3, 2012 2:59 AM

    Maybe all the head trauma accounts for the reason Jerry thinks he is a competent NFL general manager.

  104. thenightmancometh says: Feb 3, 2012 3:06 AM

    I guess that explains why someone would trade a first, third and sixth round pick for Roy Williams.

  105. theclaim says: Feb 3, 2012 3:07 AM


  106. dennis2488 says: Feb 3, 2012 3:16 AM

    well that explains drew henson, but whats his excuse about terrence newman?

  107. hodag54501 says: Feb 3, 2012 3:40 AM

    It also explains his many questionable moves as Cowboys GM.

  108. msclemons67 says: Feb 3, 2012 3:44 AM

    Someone should remind Jerry that Botox injections aren’t the same thing as concussions.

  109. raylangivens says: Feb 3, 2012 4:08 AM

    Now I understand why he’s so good at the draft.

  110. redbeardxxv says: Feb 3, 2012 4:10 AM

    I have personally had 6… only one came from football. 2 from various military exploits, and 3 from just being a kid. Not making light of the subject, but concussions are part of life. Yes, the NFL should take it seriously, but I understand Jerry’s point. They are a part of life. If you’re living yours right, they come with the territory. I’m a GIANTS fan, and typically hate when JJ speaks, but he has a point here. They ARE a big deal, but come on, the NFL might be blowing this out of proportion. Although, that may be the head trauma talking…

  111. walkedintoabar says: Feb 3, 2012 4:15 AM

    He’s both the owner and has a significant say in the Cowboys’ personell/football moves you say? No wonder they’ve been so successful over these past few seasons!

  112. jep2224 says: Feb 3, 2012 4:16 AM

    I guess that would explain his decision to keep Wade Phillips on for so long and for the crappy job he is doing as the GM.

  113. eyesofdisarray says: Feb 3, 2012 4:37 AM

    5o concussions???? Well, that would explain some of his personnel moves.

  114. Sandra Lee's Cans says: Feb 3, 2012 4:41 AM

    C’mon, this one’s too easy.

  115. whodey122975 says: Feb 3, 2012 4:43 AM

    Man, that explains alot!!

  116. Exiled1 says: Feb 3, 2012 4:45 AM

    someone needs to tell Jerry concussions doesn’t mean facelifts.

  117. ubrab says: Feb 3, 2012 4:47 AM

    This probably explains everything.

  118. honkerdawg says: Feb 3, 2012 4:49 AM

    So that’s the reason for ALL the bad personnel moves of the Cowboys

  119. jayhawk6 says: Feb 3, 2012 4:56 AM

    Is he counting plastic surgeries as concussions?

  120. jdandcoke says: Feb 3, 2012 4:57 AM

    Jerry Jones says he has had “50 concussions”

    that line just answered a lot of questions

  121. marionbarber24isgod says: Feb 3, 2012 4:58 AM

    …*sigh*……. Let me start Mr. Jones by saying that I love my Cowboys and always will. I like the coaching staff that we have in place now. I like the talent on offense. Defensively we need help in our secondary. But I certainly think we have a team that can play better then 8-8 if they work together as a unit. And Mr. Jones I think you are smart GM. It’s your team, you may do with it as you wish. Out of any other owners in the NFL, you probably know the most about Football. But sometimes you make it difficult to be a Dallas fan, you make it a little too easy for us to look like clowns by supporting our team. Not with your actions, but with your words. Being the owner of the 2nd largest sports franchise in the world makes it too simple for reporters to twist your words. Can’t wait for this very, very long Cowboys offseason to be over with. And I also expect 110% of Eagles, Giants, and Redskins to thumbs down this post. Go Patriots!!

  122. tubaplayingprof says: Feb 3, 2012 5:03 AM

    Jerry Jones. Keeping the a$$ in dumba$$.

  123. bluefan204 says: Feb 3, 2012 5:13 AM

    50? Certainly explains a lot, Jer…

  124. irishgary says: Feb 3, 2012 5:28 AM

    I would think it’s obvious he’s had at least that many, probably more

  125. gcsuk says: Feb 3, 2012 5:32 AM

    Thumbs up if this headline does not surprise you.

  126. blackqbwhiterb says: Feb 3, 2012 5:37 AM

    Jerrah sure has been saying a lot this off season….

  127. tv426 says: Feb 3, 2012 5:38 AM

    Well that explains a lot!

  128. maninmo says: Feb 3, 2012 5:44 AM

    So thats what happened to Jerry! !

  129. macbull says: Feb 3, 2012 5:44 AM

    Mr Jones…ask the Dave Dureson family if they believe “concussions” are something to joke about.

    If you did have 50 concussions or, even 3, they may have taken a toll on your own brain…have you watched your team in the playoffs lately?

    Who is the GM of the Cowboys?…oh, that would be Jerry Jones.

    nuff said…

  130. speedlimit41 says: Feb 3, 2012 5:52 AM

    Oh well that explains alot….

  131. braven4evr says: Feb 3, 2012 5:54 AM

    So…this is the reason he acts like a jerk most of the time? Nah…he’s just a freaking jerk! He’s really trying to use this as an excuse…

  132. ridingwithnohandlebars says: Feb 3, 2012 5:55 AM

    Sure you don’t mean 50 facelifts Jerry?

  133. mitchitized says: Feb 3, 2012 5:59 AM

    Based on other things I’ve heard him say, I’d wager the number is far beyond a paltry 50.

  134. omniscient48 says: Feb 3, 2012 6:00 AM

    Jones, who played college football at Arkansas, said that he has had “50 concussions.”

    That explains everything.

  135. moronhater16 says: Feb 3, 2012 6:03 AM

    With the Cowboys not even making the playoffs. This is all he has to stay in the news Super Bowl weekend… Pathetic. Go away Jerry . We can wait til next season to see you cursing in your suite ….

  136. bbk1000 says: Feb 3, 2012 6:08 AM

    It might explain the way he runs his team…

  137. faulkn22 says: Feb 3, 2012 6:09 AM

    It’s no wonder he can’t build a football team. Dah duh, tish (that’s about as bad of a concussion joke as I can make; they’re really not much of a laughing matter).

  138. vahawker says: Feb 3, 2012 6:09 AM

    THAT explains so much

  139. sterling7 says: Feb 3, 2012 6:10 AM

    All the more reason I don’t understand how he became a billionaire……………….but it explains everything else!

  140. hafftime says: Feb 3, 2012 6:10 AM

    well that explains why he thinks he’s an NFL G.M.

  141. billinva says: Feb 3, 2012 6:13 AM

    That explains his management style.

  142. jrspike says: Feb 3, 2012 6:16 AM

    Jerry the dog catcher.

  143. staffordsyear says: Feb 3, 2012 6:16 AM

    Given the way he has run the cowboys the last decade it wouldnt surprise me.

  144. arbiterflick says: Feb 3, 2012 6:17 AM

    So that’s why his decision making has been patently awful.

  145. karlcuba says: Feb 3, 2012 6:22 AM

    When he says concussions, he really means face-lifts.

  146. srrjr82 says: Feb 3, 2012 6:24 AM

    I like that he will say anything ( and I’m a redskins fan) and come on that’s s good joke. But he HAD to know he’d get grilled badly for this comment. I’m sure Roger will be calling soon too.

  147. ham1 says: Feb 3, 2012 6:29 AM

    Well that explains a lot.

  148. eigglesnosuperbowls says: Feb 3, 2012 6:29 AM

    And it shows !

  149. tonyromoisterrible says: Feb 3, 2012 6:32 AM

    He is the world’s biggest idiot.
    Worst owner in professional sports!
    Cant wait until he has his 51st concussion.

  150. macgee10 says: Feb 3, 2012 6:36 AM

    Well that could explain a lot lol

  151. gmen1987 says: Feb 3, 2012 6:37 AM

    Maybe that explains why he thinks Jerry Jones is such a great GM.

  152. thereisalwaysnextyear says: Feb 3, 2012 6:37 AM

    Even as a Skins fan, I’d rather own the Cowboys than be President.

  153. ar1888 says: Feb 3, 2012 6:38 AM

    That may explain a lot.

  154. theharshestreality says: Feb 3, 2012 6:39 AM

    That explains a lot about Jones.

  155. matiberio says: Feb 3, 2012 6:40 AM

    that explains a lot…

  156. slowclyde86 says: Feb 3, 2012 6:41 AM

    Jones “wasn’t trying to make light about” concussions? That was precisely the point he was making. The players lawsuit just got a little stronger.

  157. jpb12 says: Feb 3, 2012 6:43 AM

    Once again, Jerry Jones tries to get some TV time.

    Cowboys haven’t played in over a month.

  158. nyninerfan says: Feb 3, 2012 6:44 AM

    This would explain a lot actually.

  159. craigb2003 says: Feb 3, 2012 6:45 AM

    so this explains alot of things about good ole jerry

  160. tebowedout says: Feb 3, 2012 6:46 AM

    Ol Jerry. Just can’t keep his mouth shut.

  161. timtheenchanter1 says: Feb 3, 2012 6:50 AM

    Oops. “effects”, not “affects”

  162. mcjon22 says: Feb 3, 2012 6:56 AM

    Well, that certainly explains a lot of things…

  163. wherezwaldo says: Feb 3, 2012 6:57 AM

    Well now that explains evvvvverything.

  164. birddawg581 says: Feb 3, 2012 7:00 AM

    Gotta love Jerry. One of my favorite parts of NFL football is the look on his face you see when the TV networks zoom in on his face while the Cowboys are losing!!

  165. bbk1000 says: Feb 3, 2012 7:08 AM

    “dumbcussion” would be the result….

  166. purplengold says: Feb 3, 2012 7:20 AM

    And if not for the 50 concussions, you’d be president?

    Another drink, Mr. Jones?

  167. EJ says: Feb 3, 2012 7:25 AM

    Thats right, plastic surgery does give you concussions, oh wait, thats contusions, idiot.

    Jerry Jones for President-1996
    Bill Clinton for President-1996

    I wonder who would of won? Joke.

  168. brownsclown says: Feb 3, 2012 7:39 AM

    And it shows, everyday, in many ways!

  169. joetoronto says: Feb 3, 2012 7:56 AM

    Vox has to be cringing yet again, and every time Jerrah opens his big mouth.

    You don’t have to defend him EVERY time, Vox.

    Or whatever your handle is today.

  170. Mr. Wright 212 says: Feb 3, 2012 7:59 AM

    But yeah, the comments are just too funny. He did this entirely to steal the thunder from the Super Bowl and his arch rival being there.

  171. latchbeam says: Feb 3, 2012 8:03 AM

    Jerry Jones… STOP TALKING!!

  172. purnellmeagrejr says: Feb 3, 2012 8:10 AM

    WHyt do morons from Texas always think of themselves as Presidential material?

  173. hailvictory44 says: Feb 3, 2012 8:28 AM

    Jerry Jones says he has had “50 concussions”

    Enough said.

  174. rocketcrab says: Feb 3, 2012 8:29 AM

    My jaw dropped when he said that last night. I couldn’t believe that came out of his mouth..oh, wait, it’s Jerry Jones. Why in the world was he on that panel? Why not a relevant, thoughtful owner? OK, OK, I just answered my own question – because he owns “America’s Team”. Right……..

  175. bubbajon46 says: Feb 3, 2012 8:33 AM

    That’s nothing Jerry….I’ve been a Lions fan all my life! how many do you think I’ve had???….Although YOURS would explain that Roy Williams trade…..

  176. xxtucknrolle88 says: Feb 3, 2012 8:36 AM

    After scrolling down through 5000 comments ..rodney harrison is still a joke… Thanks for the superbowl u chump 🙂

  177. harbz says: Feb 3, 2012 8:39 AM

    I have no respect for anything Rodney Harrison says, especially regarding player safety, as he was THE dirtiest player I’ve ever seen play the game.

  178. wewantmoretebowandfavrearticles says: Feb 3, 2012 8:42 AM

    He’s probably not exaggerating too much. Playing High School ball, I’m pretty sure I had at least 4 or 5. Only 1 I addressed with a doctor, the others I could deal with the pain. Concussions are an uncomfortable reality in this high-speed, collision sport.

  179. agelardi says: Feb 3, 2012 8:46 AM

    You gotta figure he probably doesn’t remember a lot of other concussions he’s had.

  180. shiftyshellshocked says: Feb 3, 2012 8:47 AM

    I agree with Jerry, these wussies have to toughen up a little.

  181. 3octaveFart says: Feb 3, 2012 8:57 AM

    “He then joked that, if he hadn’t suffered so many blows to the head, he would have been the President of the U.S. instead of the owner of the Cowboys.”

    It didn’t stop Bush…

  182. tombradyswig says: Feb 3, 2012 9:26 AM

    makes perfect sense!! No real surprise here with the team choices he makes!!

  183. deadmanwalking47 says: Feb 3, 2012 9:35 AM

    jerry’s 50 concussions really long as jerry thinks he is as smart as he thinks he is,the cowboys will keep losing!!!!

  184. arnoldziffel says: Feb 3, 2012 9:36 AM

    “Oh, I shoulda’ drafted THAT guy!” .. (thunk!) “Hot Damn! … I coulda’ drafted That guy!” .. (whack!) “Holy Crap! … I can’t believe I drafted THOSE guys!” ..(pummel pummel). “How the heck did I let Him get away!” (bonk!). “Hey, I’m seein’ STARS!!! … How ’bout dem Cowboys!!” (smack!)

  185. christopher525 says: Feb 3, 2012 9:41 AM

    With what we now know about concussions, can we petition the league about Jerry not having the mental fortitude left to run a team?

  186. wakexxl says: Feb 3, 2012 9:42 AM

    It all makes sense now, probably cant see very well, probably why he made the screen so big in the stadium

  187. deshackle says: Feb 3, 2012 9:43 AM

    Jerry is still concussed.

  188. jimmysee says: Feb 3, 2012 9:48 AM

    As comment 175 or so I am late to this party — but my response to Jerry Jones’ comment would have to be “I believe it.”

  189. solomon151 says: Feb 3, 2012 9:51 AM

    Wow, really, So you all make fun of a guy that has had to deal with concussions first hand. And then accuse him of making light of it. Just stop and think about what you all are saying and accusing him of. I think if he came out and said this has been some really weird weather we’re having, most of you would have something to say about that too huh?? And who cares about how many face lifts he’s had. Most of you are crazy about chicks that more than likely had a few face lifts, tummy tucks and all types of injections. You all keep saying that he’s a bad GM, But he’s put together Three Superbowl teams and nine division champions. After the 1993 Super Bowl victory, reports began to surface in the media that Jones had made the statement that “any one of 500 coaches could have won those Super Bowls”, given the type of talent that he (Jones) had drafted and signed for the team. Him Not Jimmy. Jones is one of a very small number of NFL owners who actually earned a significant level of success as a football player (Jerry Richardson of the Carolina Panthers being another) And before someone say it, He was the GM then just like he is now. Jimmy never was. He may had some input, maybe alot of input, But Jerry is and always has been the GM of this team. And to say he doesnt know football is stupid to say. In case you didnt know He was a star runningback in highschool and played the o-line in college where he won the all Southwest Conference o-lineman award and was Co-Captain of the 1964 national championship and was a teammate of Jimmy Johnson in Arkansas. How is he looking to hog the spotlight, If they ask him to do an interview, what is he suppose to say no?? He’s the face of the Dallas Cowboys, even if their not playing, its his job as a owner to keep this team in the media. Come on y’all get a clue.

  190. hardmike57 says: Feb 3, 2012 10:02 AM

    Thank who-know-who for the 50 concussions-could you imagine Jerry as the President of the United States? (shudder).
    Maybe that was “W”.s problem- being dropped on his head too many times!

  191. quittsburghstoolers says: Feb 3, 2012 10:20 AM

    Jerry Jones says he has had “50 concussions”


    If that is true, it would sure explain a lot of things…

  192. unomasmore says: Feb 3, 2012 10:40 AM

    Fifty seems like a lot.

  193. timtheenchanter1 says: Feb 3, 2012 1:29 PM

    I don’t think it’s “worth the time it takes to watch” a career cheapshot artist who went out of his way to injure other players talk now about the impact of injuries and whether players should quit because of them.

  194. back2backbees says: Feb 3, 2012 3:02 PM

    I would have guessed he had 100

  195. golonger says: Feb 3, 2012 3:52 PM

    What’s Dan Snyder’s excuse????

  196. tweeter75 says: Feb 3, 2012 4:42 PM

    Well, you can’t fire the owner!!! 😦

  197. larrydavid7000 says: Feb 3, 2012 7:18 PM

    no wonder jerry makes stupid decision all the time. ha ha cowgirl fans. HAIL TO THE REDSKINS.!!!!!!

  198. misfits120 says: Feb 3, 2012 8:00 PM

    Mr. Ray Lewis, can you tackle Mr. Jones for me? Give him the one you delivered on Hines Ward.
    Thank You

  199. oddte says: Feb 3, 2012 9:21 PM

    In case no one said it yet – that would explain a lot. Hey, did anyone say it yet?

  200. The Prophet says: Feb 4, 2012 12:06 AM

    50 concussions in 3-4 years of college? This almost sounds like a Wilt Chamberlain mathematical impossibility.

  201. blasterpastor says: Feb 4, 2012 1:12 AM

    What Jerry doesn’t grasp is that it doesn’t matter how many he’s had. What matters is the players who are getting them right now! When Jerry played, the guys weren’t behemoths who could fell you with one blow and end your life! His offhand comment shows you the mentality of owners today. As long as the players are making them big bucks, they don’t care!

  202. Rex Grossman says: Feb 5, 2012 11:34 AM

    Has anyone said “That explains a lot” yet?

    I don’t care I’m going for it.

    50 concussions….that explains a lot!

  203. surfwater says: Feb 5, 2012 2:25 PM

    Slapping Jerry Jones around blogs doesn’t diminish his tremendous success in this life- walk inside his playpen the Cowboy Dome- there is a reason this man commands respect- its just he has too much faith in misfits- could actually be the air in Texas and not the 50 head hits. He has had the wrong QB for years now- his money his team and his game.Romo failed to deliver to Jerry Jones the first win in that stadium- a home game- Romo failed to deliver to Jerry Jones the Cowboys at least playing in the first Superbowl in their own stadium…I want the next Superbowl in the Cowboys Stadium- its too much.

  204. twickerson says: Feb 6, 2012 12:18 PM

    Jerry Jones to himself : “How can I try to make headlines with the Super Bowl even though I employ a consistently unreliable and overrated NFL team?”

  205. philtration says: Feb 6, 2012 1:39 PM

    Maybe he should invest in a padded headboard for his bed.

  206. lionsdetroitcom says: Feb 6, 2012 9:23 PM


  207. lionsdetroitcom says: Feb 6, 2012 9:25 PM

    He’d be freakin dead if he had 50 concussions… SMH.

  208. edelmanfanclub says: Feb 7, 2012 12:32 AM

    He probably has had so many that he lost count and thinks its something crazy like fifty, when its really not fifty.

  209. johnster67 says: Feb 8, 2012 9:53 AM

    probably from hitting his head on his desk everytime he realizes he let Jimmy Johnson walk..”I did what?” Thud
    The, hiring Barry Switzer : “I hired who?” Thud
    “I drafted who? Quincy Carter?” Thud
    “I hired who? Dave Campo?” Thud
    it just goes on and on
    “I gave Tony Romo how much?” Thud Thud Thud

  210. uberniner says: Feb 9, 2012 5:24 PM

    Well, yeah…. He acts more like he’s had 60.
