Dallas Cowboys owner/president/general manager Jerry Jones won three Super Bowls in his first six years with the team.

But it has now been 18 years since the Cowboys last won a championship.

Cowboys executive vice president Stephen Jones, Jerry’s son, believes his father will bring the organization another title “sooner rather than later.”

Cowboys fans will hope that he is right.

It’s appearing more and more likely that they’ll have to wait beyond this year.

The Cowboys are 7-7 and have lost two games in a row. They’ve had a chance to take command of the NFC East, but have failed to do so. It’s looking like Dallas will miss the postseason for the fourth consecutive year.

Jerry Jones has come under criticism for his complete control of the franchise. Earlier this season, Jones said he wanted to fulfill his current role with the franchise for 15-20 more years. He also said that he had done “some of the best work” of his career in the last several years.

The Cowboys do have talent, but they are far from a Super Bowl team.

Dallas ranks last in the NFL in total defense, yielding 427.3 yards per game, and 26th in scoring defense, allowing 27.5 points per contest.

There has been speculation about coach Jason Garrett’s future being in doubt.

It’s clear that the Cowboys aren’t stable.

That’s exactly what Stephen Jones is supposed to say, but it doesn’t make it true.
