08:01 AM ET 12.27 | Jerry Jones prefers to take care of business in person, even if that means having things play out on the sidelines. That's why the Cowboys owner and general manager elected to speak with Jason Garrett face-to-face during the first quarter of Saturday's game at Cowboys Stadium. ... "I've talked to every head coach during a ballgame, on the sideline, that we've ever had with the Dallas Cowboys," he said. Jones reassured that he isn't calling the plays, he doesn't decide the offensive philosophy and he isn't determining which players dress on gamedays. But showing his face on the sidelines continues to bring criticism that amazes the man that has owned the franchise since 1989.

You've talked to all your coaches on the sidelines, and with the exception of Jimmy Johnson they've all sucked. A pattern?

I hope he keeps doing it. The success is astounding.

He's gonna have a grabber running to the sideline this Sunday

You might as well get over it. The man owns the team and the stadium. If he wants he can stand on the fifty yard line before every game and sing show tunes. If I owned it I'd do just what I want and so would you.

Garrett is a puppet... That's why he was hired.

He should wait until the 4th quarter, that way his team can claim to be doing something towards the end of a game.

Jerry should try texting.

December 27, 2011  11:16 AM ET

I hear that. A double thumping at the hands of Vick and the Feebles? No wonder the old man has just aged three more years

"showing his face on the sidelines continues to bring criticism that amazes the man"

That says it right there. The man does not have a clue about what he is doing.

My sympathies, Otis.

This guy doesn't get it, what he should do his hire Rex Ryan then they could talk on the sidelines and go Winless!!! This the reason he can't get a good coach, he can only hire coordinators!!!

And mine. At least Snyder this year has a) not gone on the sidelines, b) stayed off tv, c) not talked football d) generally stayed out of the public eye.

Thank you Jesus. Thank you.

And Jimmy left because he got tired of talking to Jerry.
What an egomanic, and idiot, Jones must be.

Maybe he should ... or get a headset like the O Coordinator ... kinda stealth like a blue tooth version.
