"Jones remains committed to a 3-4 alignment."

That line right there pretty much sums it up why Dallas has been so bad. They have an owner that apparently should name himself head coach if he is so smart about how to run a football team. It's amazing that someone that has never played or coached professional football, or coached at any level for that matter thinks they are smart enough to make player and personnel decisions for an NFL team just because they were successful enough in business to buy it. Letting Jimmy Johnson go was almost as bad as letting Tom Landry go, too.

"Jones remains committed to a 3-4 alignment"??? Say What?? Jerry Jones is calling the defense now for the Cowboys? This is like somebody in the Miller Group calling the defensive sets for the Jazz. I would think it best that Jerry Jones allow football coaches to actually coach the team. The guy is always down on the side lines which has got to drive the Dallas coaching staff nuts.

The problems with the Cowboys have not been the coaches or players. The problem is with the owner.

Look at what is arguably the most successful NFL franchise - the Pittsburgh Steelers - winners of 6 Super Bowls - more than any other franchise, and probably the winning-est team over the past 20 years. Their owner lets the coach and players run the system. The players and coaches love the owner and it shows by their success.
