What Would You Do? pt. 1

You've just hit the magnificent LOTTERY and you are now third on the Forbes List of the 50 richest people in the world. Tied with Larry Ellison, Oracle, with 27 Billion Dollars in Cold Hard Cash! You've convinced Jerry Jones to sell the Cowboys to you.

What would you do?

In the beginning I would definitely keep Stephen Jones but elevate him to General Manager. The reason for this is his deft handling of the Salary Cap. I also think he works well with Jason Garrett.

My second move would be to also retain Tom Ciscowski. I think he has done a very good job with the scouting department as evidenced by the past three drafts.

Then I would pull a Clint Murchison and give Jason Garrett a TEN YEAR CONTRACT! That would send several messages the least of which would be to the media and it would additionally send a message to the players!

At this point I can't help but get a little light hearted and if I didn't do the above I would do the following: bigham you can stop reading at this point and go immediately to comments and post 'fanshot'!

I would hire Dawn Macelli as Cowboys Historian! I love her Kitti's Korner walk through History as they remind of my youth!

YellowHawkDiamondBeard would be my Public Relations Guru!. With him on board I wouldn't have to worry about the media asking me any 'Stupid Questions'.

I would add rabblerouser and Birddog to my scouting department because those guys (girls) have done a wonderful job here of helping me learn the players and their strengths and weaknesses.

Kegbearer and Rena would be my new Capologists. With the limited info and resources at their disposal they have done a fine job keeping BTB abreast of the Cowboys Cap hits.

Joey Ickes and Texas510 would be added to breakdown film and game planning and preparation as they have done a fine job too at keeping BTB well informed.

Last but not least I think I would Hire the one and only Mr. Customer to be my General Manager. He too has limited resources at his disposal but could you imagine what he could do with more!

With 27 Billion Dollars at hand it may cost me a lot of money to institute these changes but it sure would be worth it and baby, what a ride it would be!!
