VThe number of Dallas Cowboys enshrined in http://www.officialbengalssales.com/shop-by-players-cj-uzomah-jersey-c-1_12.html the Pro Football Hall of Fame will grow to 15 Saturday when owner Jerry Jones will be inducted along with the other members of the Class of 2017.
Jones will join Tom Landry and Tex Schramm in the group of non-playing Cowboys in Canton.
The dozen Cowboy players in the Hall are Bob Lilly, Bob Hayes, Mel Renfro, Roger Staubach, Rayfield Wright, Tony Dorsett, Randy White, Troy Aikman, Emmitt Smith, Michael Irvin, Deion Sanders and Larry Allen.
Of the 15 Cowboy Hall of Famers, I believe all but one are beloved by all true Dallas fans, and that one is the newest one Jones.
True Cowboys fans either like or dislike Jones. There is no middle ground. And, if a poll was taken Im pretty sure "dislike" would have the majority of the votes.
I, for one, would be in the "like" camp. Dont get me wrong, Ive disagreed with some things Jones has done or said many times since he bought the team in 1989, but I still believe he has been good for the Cowboys and the NFL.
In fact, his selection into the HOF has a lot to do with everything he has done for the NFL as a whole.
The dislike of Jones goes all the way back to 1989 and the firing of Landry. I agree it could have been handled better. However, most of those fans so up in arms about the firing were the same ones who, months earlier, were saying the game http://www.officialbengalsshop.com/shop-by-players-will-montgomery-jersey-c-2_122.html had past Landry by and it was time for him to go after the Cowboys went 7-9 in 1986, 7-8 in 1987 and 3-13 in 1988.
Landry wasnt going to retire or step down on his own. He wanted to prove he could turn the team around again. As much as I loved and admired Landry and hated how the firing went down, I dont believe Landry could have turned the team around. A new coach with a new vision was needed, as was a quick, yet painful, end to the Landry era.
Without Jones as the owner, I dont believe the Cowboys would have won Super Bowls following the 1992, 1993 and 1995 seasons. That goes back to my belief that Bum Bright, the owner of the team prior to Jones, would have never fired Landry, and Im not sure any other new owner would have either.
But, at the same time, I think Jonesego and mouth cost the Cowboys at least one or two more Super Bowl victories. If Jimmy Johnson had stayed as the head coach, I truly believe the Cowboys would have won four or more consecutive Super Bowl titles. However, I dont think the breakup between the two college pals was entirely Jonesfault. Johnson had a pretty big ego as well.
Jones has made his fair share of mistakes and Gosder Cherilus Womens Jersey a big one was taking over the general manager/player personnel duties after Johnsons departure. For about a 10-year period Jones ran the whole show, and over the last seven years of that period Dallas had a winning percentage of around .410, made two playoff appearances and didnt win a playoff game.
