Jerry Jones deserves special blame for kicking and coverage team woes

Jerry Jones deserves special blame for kicking and coverage team woes

Column by JEAN-JACQUES TAYLOR / The Dallas Morning News |

The kickoff coverage is awful. The kick return unit is subpar. And the kicker, known for his powerful right leg, is no longer Mr. Automatic when it comes to touchbacks.

Here's something else you can blame on Jerry Jones. Joe DeCamillis' unit is struggling

The Cowboys' atrocious special teams is as much a reason for their 1-4 start as are the penalties and mental mistakes.

Every week, you're left wondering what special teams gaffe will keep the door open to defeat.

This is what happens when you choose to trim payroll in a season without a salary cap and with hopes of going to the Super Bowl.

Every coach in America will tell you special teams are one-third of the game. They will tell you how quickly momentum can change and wins can dissolve into losses with poor special teams.

Somewhere along the way, Jerry forgot this important lesson. Think about this: Last season, special teams were so important, the Cowboys kept two kickers.
