Jerry Jones Thought Bill Parcells was the Answer - But Dallas Cowboys' Futility Continued

Not many Cowboys fans, even the most dedicated and informed, know that the first decade of the new millenium was the worst in Dallas Cowboys' History.

Bill Parcells was brought on board the Cowboys ship, listing badly and taking on water too rapidly, to correct the mistakes of General Manager Jerry Jones.

Though Parcells definitely turned the franchise around, he didn't experience the success envisioned by Jones. And after four years, Bill knew it he wouldn't either.

So, how is hindsight?

This post by Ryan Bush gives us a glimpse.

Definitely not a match made in Heaven!
 Former Dallas Cowboys head coach Bill Parcells on working with Jerry Jones for four years:
“He’s a straightforward, honest guy,” Parcells said. “He really is. That’s all I look for. He was very supportive of me as a coach. Now were there things going on that occasionally I didn’t like? Yeah, there were, but that didn’t inhibit me from going to him, talking things out. He’s really great about that.”

So what drove these two apart? Find out in Chapters 15 and 16 of Decade of Futility.
