08:05 AM ET 01.03 | Jerry Jones wanted fans to know he is "very upset, very irritated" after an 8-8 finish and he promised change, though he would not elaborate. He refused to address two hot topics: Who will be the Cowboys' play-caller and the status of defensive coordinator Rob Ryan. "I'm going to spend a lot of time visiting with people outside of the organization ... that will help us evaluate how to do the things that I know what our fans want to do, and that's not be sitting here at .500," Jones said. "There are a lot of teams that haven't been at .500, but nobody hasn't been at .500 and spent as much cash as I'm spending." ... [Jones] didn't mince words on shaking things up: "I can tell you change is necessary at 8-8. We're going to have changes."

The first change he must do is name GM and let someone else run the franchise. The Cowboys problem it's Jerry Jones.

Everyone seems to recognize this but JJ himself.

That's the change everyone wants to see, but as has been said over and over and over..ain't gonna happen!

Maybe if the press quits giving a second rate (my apologies Otis) team so much air time he would get the picture and hire someone who actually knows how to run a team. Nah, he's gonna die in the saddle isn't he?

Yep, the same way Al Davis did.

J.J. is going to spend a lot of time visiting with people outside the organization to get a sense of what he should do? And he still won't hire a GM?

My sympathies, Cowboys fans... the off-season is only just beginning.

...my sources tell me the big change is that the gm will fire himself and his coaches, handing over the entire franchise to nick saban, to be announced day after saban gets his butt kicked by the domers....

The Redskins have all these squads going back to the drawing board.

Al Davis is dead? I could have sworn I saw him in Mobile last week looking for Jamarcus Russell.

Jerry Jones of today=Al Davis of the 2000s=George Halas of the 1970s: Meddlesome relics in denial of their inability to recapture earlier glories.

Al must really want to get back some of Russell's signing bonus.

Did he say jebus was coming?

JJ is indeed a major problem as the GM. But Romo really does stink it up when it's all on the line. Alex Smith at QB with Norv Turner as the OC? The Cowboys would be instantly much better.

He's not hiring a GM...

He's not replacing the HC...

He's not replacing the DC...

He's not cutting Romo...



As Gosselin said this morning - just stop trying to fix the offensive line on the cheap by bringing in other team's rejects (as done this last offseason). This team won in the 90's with an home-grown (re: drafted) offensive line that kicked everyone's ****. This offensive line gets it's **** kicked and gets the starting QB & RB damn near killed every week.

Another 1st round draft pick for a wide receiver.
