Dallas Cowboys: The 5 Worst Decisions of the Jerry Jones Era
The Dallas Cowboys under the direction of Jerry Jones have been a roller-coaster ride.
There have been incredible highs and also some terrible moves along the way.
Jerry Jones likely wishes he could go back on some of those key decisions turned wrong.
Here are the five worst decisions of the Jerry Jones era for the Cowboys.
Jimmy Johnson, You're Fired!

Firing Jimmie Johnson: The guy just helped you win two Super Bowls, and you couldn't get along with him, so you pulled the plug and set him free.
What other owner or GM would want to run a two-time Super Bowl-winning coach out of town?
Roy Williams Failure

The Cowboys gave up three draft picks, including a first rounder, for Roy Williams.
Not only did Williams fail to produce and was basically a huge disappointment, the Cowboys were stocked at the skill positions, and could have used the draft choices and money in a much better way.
Bad 1st Round Pick

Jones used a first-round pick on Shante Carver, defensive end from Arizona State, who played only four years in the NFL and recorded a total of just 11.5 sacks over that time.
Quincy Goodbye Carter?

The Cowboys took a big leap with Quincy Carter and used a high draft pick on him.
Carter never developed into a worthy starting quarterback and had only short bursts of success in a short career
Joey ACL Injury Galloway

Another wide receiver that Jones gave up way too much for, Jones traded two No. 1 picks for Joey Galloway, who then played in only one game the next year due to a torn ACL, and never proved to be worth two No. 1 picks.
