Barry Switzer talks to JT about what is what like working for the Cowboys owner: Jerry never picked the talent. Jerry never was involved in looking at tape or film and evaluating the combine. He went to the combine, he was apart of it, he knew the players, he knew their names, he was apart of the interview process, but the draft board was always set by the coaches and the scouts. We’re the ones that determined how the board was aligned and we determined how we picked off the board on draft day, who fell, how we moved players up and who we picked. We were the ones who knew what was needed to improve the club. And Jerry wanted to be apart of that. Jerry wasn’t a coach. He was smart enough to keep out of the coaching end of it. Yes, he had to be involved in the financial structure of it; we had to trade for players within the cap system, and he needed to know whether we could afford the best player or not, and he had to be apart of that decision because he wrote the checks. But as far as telling you who to play or who to draft, offensive and defensive structures, Jerry never got involved. He’s too damn smart; he’s going to let coaches handle that. Jerry would like to give you the perception that he’s doing that but that never happened when I was there. Jerry doesn’t owe me a damn dime, I don’t work for Jerry, he doesn’t pay me today and I don’t have to say these things about him, but I loved my experience with Jerry Jones.
