How can you stand Jerry Jones as GM?

Hey guys, not here to troll or cause problems or whatever, I just have an honest question: how is Jerry Jones still making football personnel decisions? He's an old, rich man who has failed in each of the past 15 years, if the goal is to win a SB. It's hard to feel sorry for Cowboy fans sometimes, honestly, but you do have my sympathy in this regard.

I must admit I'm pretty ignorant on this subject, but does JJ have any unbiased, objective advisers in this regard (who aren't his sons or grandsons)? Has there ever been a fan movement to get him to step down from this capacity, and hire a real football GM? Would a fan movement have any chance of succeeding?

Did Jerry Jones cede power to Bill Parcells while he was in Dallas? It just makes no sense to me, when you look at NFL teams, and they're structured with highly qualified, and knowledgeable scouting departments, GMs, directors of player personnel, and the Cowboys, a prestigious franchise although I hate to admit it, are stuck with a meddlesome old man so out of touch with reality that he personally went down to the sideline during the Eagles game to tell JG5000 (I have to admit, it's catchy) to bench Romo.

It seems to me, as an outside observer, that the controversy and debate over whether Romo is the right guy, is sort of a distraction, so that the real question is not asked: "Why are we supposed to pay no attention to the man behind the curtain?"

Any thoughts you guys have would be appreciated, I'm just trying to make sense of it. And good luck next season, you did give me quite a scare, both in the first game, and in the second half last night.
