This one is for long-time BTB regular Deke, who loves him some Jerry Jones as the GM. I kid, of course. ESPN broke down the front-offices of all 32 teams, and this is their caption of the Dallas front office.

Owner, president and GM Jerry Jones is more involved in personnel matters than any other owner in the NFL. He attends all-star games and the combine, he watches film and he is directly involved in every player acquisition. In the past, he respected then coach Bill Parcells' opinion on the type of player Parcells wanted, and they seemed to have a good working relationship. It will be interesting to see whether new coach Wade Phillips has the same kind of influence on Jones.

Even the urinals at the new stadium were personally tested out by JJ. I kid, of course – I think.

Todd Archer does a nice job in his sendoff of Drew Bledsoe.

Some local talent is coming to the Ranch.

The TCU players are offensive tackle Herb Taylor, safety Marvin White, quarterback Jeff Ballard, safety Eric Buchanan, wide receiver Michael DePriest and wide receiver Quentily Harmon. Also expected to visit is Iowa tight end Scott Chandler of Southlake Carroll.
