Jerry Jones: I'm doing some of my best work
NOV 22, 2013 12:51p ET
What is his motivation? Well, the man with the 40-year-old brain says he's been doing some of his best work.
"The facts are, I really do think that the way that things have rolled out, that I'm getting to do some of the best work that I've done, relatively speaking, in my career, these last several years," Jones said on 105.3 The Fan [KRLD-FM].
And he didn't stop there. Jones, 71, then confirmed that he envisions running the Cowboys for the next 15-20 years.
"One of the reasons that I, to some degree, have taken the risks that I have over the years and kind of had the professional life that I followed is so that I get to decide when enough is enough, God willing," Jones said. "So I do get to decide that. It's a certain part of working for yourself if you still are standing when the time comes. So I get to really make that decision, and I want to make it in a way that I think is in the best interest of the team, franchise and really our fans.
"A lot of people just need to hear me say I know it's in our best interest for us to operate the way we have. It's unfortunate that over these last five or six years that we haven't had a few things turn right for us at the end of the season, needing to win one of out of two games to get into the playoffs, having a healthy quarterback, all of those things. But we've been a lot closer than it seems."
Yes, Jones delivered three Super Bowl titles during his first seven years as the team's owner, however, since 1997, the Cowboys are 133-133. As if you needed a reminder.
