Jerry Jones says he’s not slowing down, knows more than ever

Jerry Jones AP

Cowboys owner Jerry Jones is 70 years old, but he says he’s a long, long way from giving up total control of his team.

Jones, who also serves as the Cowboys’ general manager, told the Dallas Morning News that he’s better at running a football team now than he was when he bought the Cowboys a quarter of a century ago.

I know more about what I’m doing than hopefully I did 25 years ago,” he said.

Jones said that he had a neurological exam that revealed he has the mind of a much younger man.

“I’ve been told that I have, by CAT scans, that it’s like the brain of a 40-year-old,” Jones said.

In fact, Jones claims that doctors are so impressed by his health that they want to meet him not because he owns the Cowboys, but simply because they’re not accustomed to seeing 70-year-old men in such good shape. He described one such encounter that happened recently.

“The guy really did not know it was me. I was there anonymously,” Jones said. “He said, ‘And so I just wanted to come down. I saw your chart. I know how old you are. That part is really impressive.’”

Others may not be impressed with Jones’s results as an owner and general manager, but Jones sounds impressed with his own health. And Jones believes he’ll be healthy enough to keep running the Cowboys for many years to come.

    “I’ve been told that I have, by CAT scans, that it’s like the brain of a 40-year-old,” Jones said.”

    The brain of a 40-year old NFL veteran with multiple concussions, perhaps.

    If he knew SOOOO much. He would know, that he needs to hire a REAL G.M. & That he is the reason they have been SUCKING for the LONGEST!!!

    Jerry, you are letting Jay Ratliff milk an injury for the 3rd season in a row.

    Get help.

    Gosh. You find yourself to be very impressive, Jerry.

    Glad to hear of anyone’s good health – and because I am not a fan of the Cowboys, I too hope he continues to run them for many years to come.

    sounds like Jerry is in advanced stage of dementia….

  15. trevor123698 says: Aug 28, 2013 9:36 PM

    To be where he is, you need an above average mind to start with. But, what he does not know is all that grey hair is a dead giveaway to nutritional deficiencies. He isn’t going to live a whole lot longer and he’ll be very lucky to see age 90. people with money don’t live long at all. the knowledge they claim to get from doctors is always responsible for killing them. Meanwhile, hicks out in the boonies who use wood for their fuel and eat butter and lard like you wouldn’t believe do make age 100 at a far higher rate.

    heres a quote I like from my favorite doctor.

    “You could be a homeless person eating dog food and you are going to outlive doctors and billionaires. Its just crazy but its the true, and its because they put all the known nutrients in dog food” -Dr Joel wallach

    Jerrah’s quotes are proof enough that he is crazier than a bedbug and is going down the path of Al Davis. Unfortunately, Jerrah’s boy Stevie is as stupid as Al Davis’s boy. These silver spoon fed boys don’t have a clue.

  24. nice2meetumarco says: Aug 28, 2013 9:52 PM

    Jerry only thinks he knows more because Madden 25 just came out and the ratings help him determine whom to target in a trade.

    Cowboys fan here who wishes those CAT scans revealed something different about his ‘brain age’. Last thing I want to hear is that Jerrah isnt giving up control anytime soon.

  41. wikipediasaidso says: Aug 28, 2013 10:24 PM

    He’s laugh-out-loud funny, especially when he’s not trying to be.

    Did the same doctor talk him into the facelift, on the premise the outside would then look more like his super-impressive, age-defying brain?

  56. ninthwardfriend says: Aug 28, 2013 11:07 PM

    No Jerry, at 70 you need to concentrate on knowing where your teeth are when you wake up. Pro football, please. Jerry is totally ripping the thin layers off his team by making comment’s like “Romo need to be more like Manning” and “Rome has a brilliant offensive mind like Sean Payton”. C’mon man. Dallas lack’s true team leadership.

    Yea, he’s got the mind of a 40 year old alright, a 40 year old drunken hillbilly who has surrounded himself with a bunch of yes men. You can get away with that in the private sector but in the NFL, yes men don’t win championships.

    Whew! I’m glad he’s in such good health. Imagine if he was a narcissistic, micro-managing buffoon instead of a 70 year old with a 40 year old brain (according to “CAT scans”) that are so unbelievably impressive he is visited by random doctors who (also unbelievably) DON’T EVEN RECOGNIZE HIM!

    As long as Jerry remains at the controls, the Cowboys will remain irrelevant when it comes to the playoffs and Super Bowls. If only Tony Romo could also promise to stay at the QB position for them for another 25 years also.

  125. 80sbroncofan says: Aug 29, 2013 9:54 AM

    Poor Al Davis has only been gone for a short time and Jerry is already trying to steal his spotlight as a meddlesome owner that should’ve butted out a long time ago. Keep thinking you know what your doing Jerry, we love watching “America’s Team” SUCK!!! You haven’t been any good since you ran one of the best coaches you could ever have (Jimmy Johnson) outta town. Bravo!!!!

    The secret to Jerry’s young mind summarized in two words…..

    Chronic masturbation…..

    I am guessing the doctors prognosis was very different than Jerry’s depiction of it.

    Delusions of grandeur are a sure fire sign of mental ineptitude.

    To be where he is, you need an above average mind to start with. But, what he does not know is all that grey hair is a dead giveaway to nutritional deficiencies. He isn’t going to live a whole lot longer and he’ll be very lucky to see age 90. people with money don’t live long at all. the knowledge they claim to get from doctors is always responsible for killing them. Meanwhile, hicks out in the boonies who use wood for their fuel and eat butter and lard like you wouldn’t believe do make age 100 at a far higher rate.

    heres a quote I like from my favorite doctor.

    “You could be a homeless person eating dog food and you are going to outlive doctors and billionaires. Its just crazy but its the true, and its because they put all the known nutrients in dog food” -Dr Joel wallach

    Only proves that being an idiot has nothing to do with getting older.

    This should be welcome news to fans of other teams in that division.

  134. steve3211 says: Aug 29, 2013 4:28 PM

    very comforting for Cowboy fans to hear no doubt.

    Of coarse he has the brain of a 40 year old he stopped using it 30 years ago.

    All Davis II light:

    What Jones and also Davis didn’t realize there are variable aspects of brain function. Certain aspects are more affected by ageing than others. All Davis never lost his knowledge about football. He could still hold impressive conversations on all aspects of the game with others. What he however lost was the ability to integrate all those aspects effectively to come to intelligent conclusions. While he could still see the individual pieces of the puzzle clearly he could no longer put them together to create the bigger picture. This resulted in his latter football blunders.

    As a type A personality he could not acknowledge that he was no longer able to function as he once had and begane instead to blamed his mistakes on the people around him instead. That is one of the other aspects of ageing.

    Jones was not even in the same ball park with Al to start with, so it should be interesting how his and the Dallas story plays itself out.

    the only thing jerry jones has in common with the GREATNESS that was AL DAVIS, is that both cant/couldnt admit when to cede control of the day to day operations of their football team. THATS IT. al davis was a GREAT football mind who revolutionized football. not just on how it was played on the field but how it was run as a business. all jerry ever did was hire jimmy johnson who won him 3 super bowls, and then fire the guy because he was taking too much credit for the success he felt rightfully belonged to jerry. cowboys havent been close to being relevant since.

    FYI – when the raiders last went to the super bowl, AD was 70 years old.

    If Jerry Jones truly knew, in his 40-year old brain, more than ever, he’d know he is a terrible GM and he’d hire someone who could to the job way better than he.
