Dallas was represented by Head Coach Jason Garrett who spoke on a variety of topics. Today, Jerry had his turn at center stage aboard his brand new theme park on wheels.

Jones spoke to a variety of subjects to the media during what was reportedly a two-hour session. Here's a snapshot of some of the key points he covered as relayed by those in attendance.

Jerry on Jason Garrett calling plays:
