Jerry Jones is, arguably, the most colorful owner in all of sports. As the Dallas Cowboys’ owner, president and general manager for the past 30 years, Jones is never shy when it comes to showing off his eccentric personality, doing things many people in his position hold back from because, well, he’s all about the brand of his franchise, and thinks he (rightfully) should be the one front in center.
Although the Cowboys haven’t won a Super Bowl since 1996, Jerry Jones still acts as if the team is the best thing since sliced bread, specifically because it’s one of the most valuable sports franchises in the world. So, yeah, it makes sense why Jones does things his way; because it seems to have worked.
While Jerry has never been one to hold back on things, he may have revealed a little bit too much information about the camaraderie inside his team’s locker room. That’s because, while appearing as a guest on 105.3 The Fan recently, the owner talked about some of the things players do to get the team hyped up. One of those things? Star running back Ezekiel Elliott apparently “spanking himself” as he danced around the room pretending to ride a horse.
Yeah, it’s quite the visual, right?
Not only did Jerry Jones reveal Zeke’s routine, but he also thinks that the All-Pro’s moves are actually an “asset” to the team, which seems a little strange, but, OK. Here’s what Jones said to 105.3 about the strange importance of Elliott’s locke room moves; which he spoke about after initially being asked his thoughts on Cowboys’ defender Robert Quinn’s sack dance against the Dolphins last weekend.
Well, this is interesting. Not sure how a grown ass man dancing around in a towel and pretending to ride a horse hypes a bunch of his teammates up before, during or after a game, but, hey, if Jerry Jones thinks it works, we should all just let him be in his own little world.
Of course, given the fact Jones handed Ezekiel Elliott a monstrous new contract this offseason, the love fest between the two is at an all-time high — with each even laughing off any shade they threw towards one another during the negotiation process. Meanwhile, I envision everyone in the Cowboys’ locker room basically doing the bull dance now, feeling the flow.
The Cowboys are currently 3-0 and looking like the team to beat in the NFC, so if pretending to ride around on a horse is what it takes to keep that kind of winning going, Jerry Jones is in full support.
