more like decade and half of futility 5 février 2014
Par TAP - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Format Kindle
The futility really began after super bowl xxx. Many players had left the Boys thru free agency and the troika of coaches (Johnson, Turner, Wannstadt) were gone as well. The Tripletts were still there but were increasingly mal-coached thru last half of '90s.

The book is easy and fun to read. There are many game-by-game synopsises of the years since Switzer for those of us who don't/didn't live in Texas. I thought there would be more salacious gossip concerning the Parcells era but the gist of those years was made clear. The author is good at taking a comment from owner or coach or press etc and using it as the main theme of the chapter in question.

No real revelations about Jerral that we all did not expect/suspect. His coaches other than Johnson/Parcell are puppets. Jones would rather lose than have some one else (GM or coach) get any credit. That's the real reason Landry was let go so quick; if Landry and/or Schramm had stayed and the Cowboys came back to playoff contention, Jethro (Jones) would not be given any credit by the sports world or fans. It would be perceived that Landry and/or Schramm was responsible. Jones doesn't have to worry about the financial consequences of his course of action because the fan base still makes the Cowboys a cash cow.

I have read somewhere that Schramm (while Bright was still owner) gave thought to bringing in Johnson from Miami when Bright talked openly about retiring Landry. I wonder if Jethro got the idea of Johnson as coach from Bright/Schramm. Maybe Bright gave Schramm's idea to Jethro when negotiations for the sale of the team were in progress. Jones knew he could never get a team out of the dumps by himself. I always suspected that it was only coincidence that the J.J.'s went to, and played ball, at the same college.

Looks like Jones did the same to both Johnson and Parcell; let someone more qualified get the ship moving forward and when on its way, take over and claim credit. Most of Parcells drafts are old and don't have much left. Jones' drafts since Parcells are hit-and-miss. Most aren't panning out. As they say, the talent is slipping again.

Book is highly recommended. Read this before listening to any Jones media interviews or documentaries about Jones. Definitely read this before ever beginning a close (season by season and all thru the season) following of Jones/Cowboys. What Jones does to/with the Cowboys will then make more sense.

Good book, but it could have used a better proofreader 26 septembre 2013
Par Lom Bard - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
"Decade of Futility" is a decent book. Author Ryan Bush does a great job compiling anecdotes and recalling events from the Jerry Jones era in Dallas.

(Side note: I think Bush should have titled the book "Era of Futility" ... since it's not precisely clear WHICH "decade"/10-year period of Cowboys "futility" is is referring to specifically. The Cowboys have been relatively futile since the 1996 season.)

Regardless, Bush includes some new tidbits about Tony Romo and Jason Garrett that I'd either forgotten or not known about at the time. If you are a Cowboys fan and you love to hate Jerry Jones, this book has plenty of stories that will make your hatred burn for Jerrah even more.

Bush is a young writer and does well content-wise ... but this book needed a better editor.

There were a few misspellings (like misspelling L. P. Ladouceur's last name and not capitalizing the "M" in DeMarcus Ware's first name ... I know, nitpicky, but you expect those things to be correct), inconsistent style, odd punctuation (a double exclamation point was used after one sentence!!), some wrong facts (like that the Dolphins were favored to win Super Bowl VI, when in fact they were six-point underdogs to the Cowboys) and some wrong assumptions (that Barry Switzer and Wade Phillips were responsibile for drafting some of their players ... with the exception of Jimmy Johnson and Bill Parcells, we all know that Jerry Jones called the shots personnel-wise).

But those gripes aside (and yes, I am a grammar/style Nazi), the book was still a very good read ... and I recommend it to both Cowboys fans (guilty) and Cowboys haters.

If it weren't for the book's sloppy editing, I would have given it FOUR stars. Still a good debut book from a young writer.

Understand only reason their so bac 25 février 2014

It is amazing how Jerry Jones the brilliant Business man is not be able to see his decisions as GM
set the team back for 17 years. He "shoots from the hip" and does not have philosophy of the type of team he wants, which leads to new coaches, players, defenses, and offenses but always the same GM.
The owner would rather lose making football decisions that make a change. I had not realized how long
The Dallas Cowboys have been mediocre until I read this book.
