We know Cowboys owner Jerry Jones has an oversized ego (more evidence here). We know he's got an oversized stadium with an oversized video board. And we also know he has an oversized budget and a team full of oversized personalities that play in an oversized state.
Now, we know Jones has an oversized mouth.
Yesterday, Deadspin released a video of an inebriated Jones ranting about Tim Tebow ("he'd never get on the field," slurred Jones), Bill Parcells ("not worth a s***," stammered Jones) and his quarterback Tony Romo ("Romo was a miracle," according to the owner).
Here is a link to the video (warning: there are many naughty words in the video and on the site).
Jones, who was secretly videotaped at a Dallas bar on an unknown date, said the only reason Parcells was brought in as head coach was so the Cowboys could get their new stadium approved.
According to ESPN's Ed Werder, Jones reached out to Parcells once the video was released in order to explain his comments.
The Dallas owner has not commented on the story publicly, but Parcells did to The Bergen Record, saying, "I know how he really feels about me. I think he was just pulling some guy’s leg. I’m not upset with it at all. He didn’t mean it."
Parcells added he and Jones still have a good relationship.
As far as Tebow (pictured), who Jones said wouldn't be worth drafting even in the third round because he'd never see the field, no word on whether Jones has reached out to him. Regardless, we now know a little of the Cowboys' draft strategy.
Also no word on dialogue between Romo and Jones, though Romo may just have to bite the bullet on this one.
After all, Jones is the one who signs his oversized checks.
