Perhaps a proven GM, like Bill Polian, can help Jones
While this suggestion is an extreme reach for Jerry Jones, it is one that needs to be considered. Take Jones, himself. He is a business man that demands results. If a head coach is not getting the job done, he fires them. If a player is not getting it done, they are pink slipped. One thing Jones says is that it all starts with him. How about having accountability start with him?
If Garrett wants to preach accountability to the team, it needs to be preached from the top down. The best way to lead is by example. If the players were to see that the owner fired himself as GM, it would send a shock wave of accountability instantly.
It has been 17 years and only one playoff win since the last Super Bowl win. Jones got off to a fantastic start, winning three super bowls in his first seven years. The only thing is that once Jimmy Johnson left, so did the best GM the team ever had. The team has not been close to the Super Bowl since Johnson's talent trickled off the team.
All that can be said is that if Jones has a head coach win only one playoff win in 17 years, he would have been fired about 14 years earlier. Perhaps bringing in a proven GM, like Bill Polian, will help Jones see how to properly construct a team. Polian has had extreme success everywhere he has gone.
He was the architect behind the construction of the 1990's Buffalo Bills teams that lost four straight Super Bowls. Polian built the quickest contending franchise in NFL history with the Carolina Panthers, bringing them to the Conference Championship in its mere second year of existence. His latest accomplishment was the Indianapolis Colts, as he was key in drafting Peyton Manning over Ryan Leaf. The Colts appeared in two Super Bowls under Polian's watch.
