08:01 AM ET 10.05 | The somewhat awkward exchange between Jerry Jones and Tony Romo on Sunday underscored perhaps a larger point: That the owner is there in the first place. Jones said he will continue to pace the sidelines during games, because he is the team's general manager as well as its owner. "I was going down there when we won three world championships, so I know it works," Jones said. ... "I do feel like I need to be down there on occasion. I want to get a sense for where the karma is, I get to get a sense for the attitude of the players on the sideline, just the body language, just the passion that's involved, who's in the game, who's gummed up, just the basic situation on the sideline. You need to know that if you're making the personnel decisions."

+1.

And hire a GM who knows football, not a yesman who'll do what you tell him to do.

JJ please sign a big time QB asap. Romo is hurt and Kitna was sloppy in SF.

"You need to know that if you're making the personnel decisions."..JJ ,10/05/2011.

And there you have it. I think he just found the root of the problem.

We all fault Jerry, but where would you rather be? Up in the owner's box, or down on the sidelines with the cheerleaders, so close you can smell their lip gloss and see every wardrobe malfunction?

He can't run a football team, but give him that one.

It's especially great when he's down there when the team self destructs.
