Jerry Jones hates not being a Super Bowl participant


The Dallas Cowboys appeared in eight of the first 30 Super Bowls. They’ve appeared in none of the last 20. And that drives owner/G.M. Jerry Jones crazy.

“I hate it,” Jones said over the weekend at the NFL Honors ceremony, via the Dallas Morning News. “I scream in my pillow when I go home at night when we’re here. I want [the Dallas Cowboys] to be here so bad, but it’s filling my bucket up so we can go.”

Still, experiencing the Super Bowl makes Jones want to get back even more.

It’s inspirational,” Jones said. ” It makes you want to just empty your bucket to get in here and have this kind of experience. We feel that way. It’s deliberate.”

For 2016, the Cowboys once again have hope, and it starts with the ability of quarterback Tomy Romo to have a big year.

“Candidly, I’m just counting on Tony to come back and have some of the greatest years, if not the best years, of his career,” Jones said. “We want to make sure that we’ve got him the supporting cast. . . . We tried to do it this year. We didn’t get here. We’ll keep trying to get it done.”

Along with the other 31 teams. And all of them are currently 0-0, with seven months to get ready for the chase to win the 51st Super Bowl trophy to be awarded by the league.

    Then, Jerry has a lot to hate about over the last two decades and counting.

  2. glenuendo says: Feb 10, 2016 8:06 PM

    If you want to get back, hire a GM. It’s that simple. Of course as a Redskin fan, I still say keep on your current course.

  3. screamingsheep69 says: Feb 10, 2016 8:07 PM

    I hope Jerry lives forever!

  4. zack2482 says: Feb 10, 2016 8:09 PM

    Build the defense now. Romo has never had the luxury of an excellent defense. Even when they were in the playoffs, they still had a 16 or 17th ranked defense. I would love to see him with a top 5 defense.

  5. bootguy says: Feb 10, 2016 8:09 PM

    Then hire a REAL GM and a REAL coach , Jerry !!!

  6. bobC927 says: Feb 10, 2016 8:12 PM

    Hey Jerrah, if you want the Cowboys to get to the Super Bowl, first you have to fire Jerry Jones.

  7. dansardo says: Feb 10, 2016 8:12 PM

    All Jerrah needs to do is look in the mirror to figure out why teams like the bill, Browns and bengals have been better than a hot mess team like the cowboys for the past 2 decades

  8. dal1as says: Feb 10, 2016 8:13 PM

    If he wants the Cowboys in the Super Bowl then he needs to hire a gm and back away from football operations completely

  9. drpaisley says: Feb 10, 2016 8:16 PM

    “We want to make sure that we’ve got (Romo) the supporting cast. . .”

    So they’re assuming more broken bones. Seems reasonable.

  10. doggeatdogg says: Feb 10, 2016 8:19 PM

    30 other team owners and their team’s fans hate it too Jerry.

  11. skinsfolife says: Feb 10, 2016 8:22 PM

    This dude is as delusional as his fan base. They went to 8 Super Bowls because they didn’t have him as the GM. 5 of which were before owned the team. This franchise will not move forward until Jerry moves on and I don’t think that will happen until Jerry moves on into the after life.

  12. bigdawg24 says: Feb 10, 2016 8:22 PM

    I guess the next step if for the NFL to have a per-determined Super Bowl like the WWE does. They could have Dallas-vs-Pittsburgh every year.

  13. forthegoodofthegame says: Feb 10, 2016 8:22 PM

    Jerry Jones is all about Jerry Jones. His agenda items:

    1 – Expand the playoffs (so Cowboys can make it)
    2 – Deflategate (so Cowboys no longer most hated)
    3 – Look the other way on domestic violence issues (to sign good players in hopes of getting into playoffs). Return to #1.

  14. td30 says: Feb 10, 2016 8:27 PM

    well as long as you’re riding Romo, you might want to actually invest in a legitimate backup

  15. dennis82468 says: Feb 10, 2016 8:28 PM

    Sell the team

  16. stexan says: Feb 10, 2016 8:29 PM

    Jerry Jones has one item on his agenda:

    Make money

    And he’s willing to spout as much BS as it takes to make it.

  17. cambodianbreastmilk says: Feb 10, 2016 8:30 PM

    Get used to it dummy.

  18. PFT's Most Moderated says: Feb 10, 2016 8:32 PM

    As a Giants fan, I hope Jerry Jones never realizes that the sole cause of the Cowboys’ failure falls squarely on his shoulders. One day he’ll realize he needs to just be an owner and leave the football operations to someone that… oh, I don’t know…. actually knows something about football. And I hope that day never comes.

  19. tootitan says: Feb 10, 2016 8:34 PM

    Jones “empties the bucket” every time he opens his mouth.

  20. arpy911 says: Feb 10, 2016 8:41 PM

    You would think with all that money he could at least afford an outhouse as opposed to a bucket.

  21. jag1959 says: Feb 10, 2016 8:47 PM

    Filling his bucket…emptying his bucket…the only bucket we can be sure of is his ‘GM’ is a bucket of spit

  22. tigerboye says: Feb 10, 2016 8:58 PM

    He’s been crying in his pillow since 1995! WOW!!!


  23. tigerlilac says: Feb 10, 2016 9:08 PM

    That’s one of the reasons Jones supported the NFL’s great fraud (aka: Deflategate). Guys like Jones can not compete on a level playing field so they use their influence to tip the scales. Not only can Jones not win anymore, he is always looking in the rear-view mirror to see what franchises are gaining ground on “America’s Team” in stature and value. For Jones, Deflategate was his way of keeping Kraft (his friend) and the Patriots at bay.

    Think about it. Owners were willing to smear one of the greatest players in the history of the NFL to maintain their status, real and perceived. Every hater that slams Brady gives guys like Jones a boost.

  24. bleedingfacemask says: Feb 10, 2016 9:09 PM

    I heard that Peyton Manning could step right in to a GM role today if he wanted, and I scoffed.

    But then again, Manning would likely be much better at the job than the Cowboys’ current GM, so now I’m thinking the idea isn’t so far-fetched anymore…

  25. r502 says: Feb 10, 2016 9:11 PM

    Jones, you should use that bucket you speak of to bail out the cesspool that is your organization.

  26. yyc2phx says: Feb 10, 2016 9:13 PM

    It all goes back to management

    Dallas ….Landry and company
    Pittsburgh… Noll structure
    SF… Walsh, Seifert and Eddie D
    Minn….. Bud Grant
    Buff…. Marv Levy and Polian
    Oakland…. Madden
    Miami…. Shula
    GB…. Structure
    NE…. Belicheck structure
    Wash…..Gibbs structure
    Denver… Management structure

    There is a pattern to for failures

    Detroit, Cleveland, Cinn…..

    It’s all about structure and coaching

  27. filmex2000 says: Feb 10, 2016 9:13 PM

    Listening to Jer talk football is akin to listening to a discourse on dining manners from Jeffrey Dahmer.
    No, I take that back. Dahmer would be better informed on his subject.

  28. gmen5280 says: Feb 10, 2016 9:18 PM

    Jerry, the best thing you can do to get the Cowboys back to the SB.
    Sell the team to a non meddlesome owner.

  29. pbeddoe says: Feb 10, 2016 10:07 PM

    As long as he is associated with the Cowboys, they will continue to lose, its that simple. Worst owner in the NFL.

  30. tonebones says: Feb 10, 2016 10:11 PM

    I’m not a Cowboys fan, not a Jerry Jones fan, but the Cowboys came mighty close two years ago, and then Romo got hurt last year. I think they got royally screwed on Dez Bryant’s catch. They might have won the super bowl if that was ruled a catch. Dallas is a lot closer than some of us think. Romo needs to be healthy and have a good draft and The Cowboys are right there. Romo was playing just about as good as any QB in the league when he went down.

  31. evilglazers666 says: Feb 10, 2016 10:23 PM

    Fire yourself from GM and you will be able to get there.

  32. rhob1960 says: Feb 10, 2016 10:51 PM

    Jerry hates it, I love it. He has zero ability as a GM. Until he learns what steinbrenner did, to leave football operations in the hands of football people, he won’t be at the super bowl unless it’s as a spectator. From the way he fired Landry, I hope he never learns.

  33. duanethomas33 says: Feb 10, 2016 10:54 PM

    Jerry should be use to not going to the SB by now, its been 20 years…without even a conference championship game.

  34. zygizag says: Feb 10, 2016 10:55 PM

    Hey Jerry we will trade you AP for 3 1st rounders and a couple of your OL starters. I think that will do it for you.

    Always hated the Cowboys. Jerry for GM forever.

  35. therealjr says: Feb 10, 2016 11:22 PM

    LOL @ HTTR. One of the few franchises in a sadder state.

    Meanwhile, @ Jerruh….20 years of nothing. What’s the common denominator?

  36. db105 says: Feb 10, 2016 11:39 PM

    He has no one to blame but himself.

  37. bradygirl12 says: Feb 10, 2016 11:40 PM

    I think the empty bucket is sitting on top of Jerry’s shoulders. As long as he puts himself in charge of all the decisions being made in Dallas,he will be screaming into that pillow for a long time. The days of wearing the helmet with the star on it with pride are no longer. This team will be a hot mess until he steps down. Btw,Jerry,Tony Romo isn’t fresh out of college. He’s beaten down and fragile.

  38. purpleguy says: Feb 10, 2016 11:40 PM

    The Cowboys downhill slide has continued ever since Jones’ ego couldn’t handle all the attention Coach Jimmy J was receiving.

  39. xenova1 says: Feb 10, 2016 11:52 PM

    Behavior is indicative of either old age or psychotic obsessive disorder. People like him need to learn that you can’t buy success. Just relax and enjoy what life you have left.

  40. hahalolrofl says: Feb 11, 2016 12:02 AM

    By the time Jerry is done with romo and after all those surgeries, romo will be a freakin t1000 cyborg

  41. bencoates57 says: Feb 11, 2016 12:36 AM

    Is he upset Greg Hardy is not Super Bowl MVP?

  42. bencoates57 says: Feb 11, 2016 12:37 AM

    It’s not so much that they haven’t qualified for a Super Bowl. It’s that this team has made zero noise in any if the last 20 postseasons.

  43. dsheik says: Feb 11, 2016 12:54 AM

    Sure hed rather win, but hed also rather loose with complete control than win with a GM or proven coach getting the credit.

  44. denverdude7 says: Feb 11, 2016 3:35 AM

    Face it Jerry…

    The Denver Broncos are now America’s Team and have been for quite some time.

    Pretty much since you took over as GM in fact.

    If you want your Cowboys at the Super Bowl buy them all a ticket and host a tailgate party for them because that is the only way you’re getting there.

    I read the title as “Jerry Jones Still Lacks Introspection”.

  47. jiffyjeff1 says: Feb 11, 2016 8:44 AM

    Step down as GM and maybe the Cowbroads will be somewhat significant.

  48. excusemewhileiwhipthisoutagain says: Feb 11, 2016 8:57 AM

    Just keep doing what you are doing, Jerrah, and you will die still crying in your pillow.

  49. docboss says: Feb 11, 2016 10:59 AM

    Here is hoping Jerry and Stan are not in a SB in their lifetimes

  50. jrcowboy49 says: Feb 11, 2016 11:33 AM

    Jerrah needs to resign as GM and hire a real but good GM to run the Team. Then the chances of another Super Bowl run improves. The 4-11 record for 2015 is the Cowboys’ worst season since a 1-15 showing in 1989, the year Jerrah bought the team. The Cowboys have only had 3 seasons in their 56 years of football where they won fewer than 4 games – 1960, 1988, and 1989. Think about that for just a moment. That means this is the 4th worst season in Cowboys’ history and all three of the seasons below it are the epitome of “rock bottom”. The year the franchise was born, the year Tom Landry was shown the door, and the year Jimmy and Jerry took over and tried to clean everything out and start over. This is why we need a good HC and GM.

  51. vonmillertime says: Feb 11, 2016 11:51 AM

    Then hire a GM Jerry.

  52. dennisg40 says: Feb 11, 2016 2:43 PM

    Every Cowboy wants to ride the bronc or bull until the buzzer goes off but it takes talent and good luck same as football but that is a lot bigger and more technically complicated. I feel that if every coach taught their people visualization and had more people seeing themselves catching the passes, completing the passes, running the long touch downs or controlling the line of scrimmage, stopping the other teams passing and running and seeing themselves intercepting they would be doing a lot more of it than just practicing the game physically I also think players could see themselves more protect health wise as a team and be physically better. Go ahead and laugh if you want to but I practiced mentally protecting the team in 2014 but I didn’t in 2015 this was only me doing it and judge the difference for yourself.

  53. gmiller305 says: Feb 11, 2016 10:28 PM

    Jerry Jones is Al Davis incarnate. They only think of one thing…Themselves!

  54. lambeaudungbarn says: Feb 13, 2016 11:34 AM

    Jerry rode the first teams to Super Bowls. His incompetence is the reason for the last 20. That’s just fine with me. I wonder how many years Jerry would have put up with himself, or been fired for lack of production!

  55. cowboysdude says: Feb 14, 2016 7:15 PM

    I really just don’t believe that he truly thinks he has a real “HC”… what he has is a yes man.

    He’s about making money, fans and winning are secondary. He will do what he has to to continue raking it in…

    I’m a cowboys fan but I tell the other cowboys fans the same thing… he’s a liar. Quit listening to what he says and pay attention to what he does. They rarely are the same thing…
