Consistent Cowboys

Reading the sports news this morning, one might note that Dallas Cowboys' owner Jerry Jones is about as effective at evaluating engineering talent as he is at finding football talent.

As a reminder, the Cowboys have not won a playoff game in a dozen years. Back then, the Cowboys were running off the fumes of the Jerry Johnson years. There was much to dislike about Mr. Johnson personally, but as an evaluator of talent, he had few peers. For better or worse, the egos of Messrs. Jones and Johnson were too big to co-exist in a state even the size of Texas.

Since Mr. Johnson's forced departure, Mr. Jones has run the show alone, with the result that both the team's playoff record and practice facility are currently in shambles.
