Jerry Jones, Dallas Cowboys owner, has been subject to a lot criticism over his team’s failures in the postseason over the past two decades.
Despite winning three Super Bowls in 1990s, the Cowboys have not been able to reach the NFC Championship Game this century.
Jones is the owner of the team and the general manager. This year, however, the criticism might not be justified.
Although the Cowboys were one of the best teams in the league they did not execute when it was most important.
Darren Woodson, a former Cowboys star believes Jones isn’t entirely to blame for the team’s failure in the postseason.
“Everyone wants to say it’s Jerry’s fault. And I’m not a firm believer in that. I think Jerry’s put together some pretty good football teams…I mean, at some point the players have got to win the games,” Woodson said.

Troy Aikman and Michael Irvin, former Cowboys players, have shared similar comments. They pointed out that players, especially the stars of the team need to step up when it is most important.
The Cowboys enter another offseason without any postseason success.
