Troy Aikman Calls For ‘Complete Overhaul’ of The Cowboys Organization
Last week, the Dallas Cowboys traded a first-round pick for wide receiver Amari Cooper, which pretty signaled that Jerry Jones believed the tea was just a star WR away from accomplishing what they wanted.
Despite Cooper’s early touchdown in the game against the Tennessee Titans, the Cowboys went on to drop that Monday Night game and fall to 3-5 on the season with a tough schedule coming up.
You want to know how bad it is in Dallas right now? Troy Aikman has seen enough and wants the franchise to start completely over – from top to bottom.
Aikman joined The Musers on 1310 The Ticket on Tuesday and called for the franchise to make changes. He said that there was a lot of “dysfunction” throughout the organization.
Troy Aikman tells The Musers the Cowboys have a myriad of problems: "Changing the coach is one thing, but you have to look at how things are run out there (The Star). I talk to people in the building and from what I hear is that there's a lot of dysfunction."

“I don’t think, where he’s (Jerry Jones) at right now, that he wants to go through another regime change. I think he’s very comfortable with Jason (Garrett). I do believe he respects Jason and he’s hoping like crazy that good things will happen here down the stretch so that a change doesn’t have to take place.”
“But I think the one thing Jerry has done over the years, whether it’s accurate or not, I think Jerry has done things after seasons to at least give a fan base hope going into the following year. And that will happen again this year, whether that ultimately means the head coach, a change there, or something else.”
“Go through the list and this team, over a long period of time, has been what it’s been,” Aikman said. “It hasn’t always mattered who the head coach has been. So to me, if you’re asking me, I’d say there has to be a complete overhaul of the entire organization. You can’t just can’t simply replace head coaches and say, ‘Now it’s going to be better.’ No, it’s been shown that it’s not better. And you have to address how everything is being done.
“And there’s been times where I’ve heard Jerry say, ‘OK, look, we’re going to do it differently. I’m going to do it differently.’ But it’s the same. Nothing changes. And that to me is the bigger issue, beyond, ‘Yes, coaching’s important, personnel, all those things are important, but how are you going about evaluating? How are you going about running the organization?”
