Troy Aikman thinks Jerry Jones 'needs to accept responsibility for the Cowboys

Troy Aikman thinks Jerry Jones 'needs to accept responsibility for the state of the Cowboys'

IRVING – Troy Aikman, the Cowboys' Hall of Fame quarterback, said Wednesday that owner-general manager Jerry Jones must take some of the blame for the flagging state of the franchise.

Jones on Monday changed coaches for the sixth time since the 1993 season, firing Wade Phillips and replacing him with offensive coordinator Jason Garrett on an interim basis. At 1-7, the Cowboys are in danger of winning fewer than five games for the first time since 1989, Jones' inaugural season.

"Jerry Jones needed to do something but needs to accept responsibility for the state of the Cowboys as well," Aikman said in a wide-ranging statement released by FOX Sports.

Aikman said talk of Jones stepping aside as general manager "is pointless to talk about," because it will never happen. Aikman also said Jones can attract a quality head coach because of his willingness to devote resources to the club.

"No one wants to win more than Jerry Jones," Aikman said. "But there are some real challenges. How you navigate them is going to determine your success with the Cowboys. You'd better be a strong individual.

"The two head coaches who have enjoyed great success in Dallas have been Jimmy Johnson and Bill Parcells. That's because the players knew who they were answering to. Players knew if you didn't make their head coaches happy, there was going to be hell to pay."

Aikman will be the analyst on FOX's telecast (Ch. 4) of Garrett's head coaching debut at the Giants on Sunday.
