Apparently the answer is a 3-3 start to the season and going down 23-0 in a Week 8 meeting with the New York Giants.
Jones was not alone in the first-half boos, as head coach Jason Garrett, QB Tony Romo and every other Cowboy under the sun received boos as well, but it was those directed at Jones that stood out.
Whoa, Jerry Jones on a breast-cancer PSA on big screen getting booed big time!

Despite the fact that Jones' message was clearly a good one, is it not understandable that fans would want to voice their frustration with the product he is delivering right now?
The Cowboys are a talented team, to be sure, but they are not legitimate contenders in the NFC this season. Dallas is among the most inconsistent teams in football, beating the defending Super Bowl champions one week and getting blown out by the Seattle Seahawks the next.
Jones crafted and molded these Cowboys. He decided Garrett was the long-term answer as head coach, and he is the one that continues to believe Romo is the right QB to lead Dallas to the Super Bowl.
ESPN's Ed Werder tweeted this about the situation:
Cowboys QB Tony Romo booed lustily. Don't think this is what Jerry Jones had in mind when he tried to create more fan involvement #cowboys

Cowboys fans deserve better than a delusional owner who believes he is the right man to serve as the General Manager. There is a reason Jones is the only owner/GM in football. It simply is not working.
Dallas has looked much better in the second half this week, closing the gap to just 23-17 and reaffirming their inconsistent nature. Perhaps they are finally ready to turn the corner for good, but the more likely scenario is that Jones will deserve more boos in the coming weeks.
