NFL team owners were in Houston this week for the annual fall owners meetings. After voting to make Arizona’s University of Phoenix Stadium the site for Super Bowl XLIX in 2015, SportsRadio 610’s Dan Matthews caught up with Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones. 

Complete Interview

When asked about the job Houston Texans owner Bob McNair has done during his tenure, Jones revealed just how highly esteems McNair and the Texans organization.

“When he came into the NFL, he was in the top five owners when he walked in the door,” Jones said of McNair, whose franchise is celebrating its 10th NFL season. “As far as his football team is concerned, it’s solid.”

Jones’ admiration extends beyond the brotherhood shared between the two owners.

“He got him a heck of a defensive coach,” Jones said of former Cowboys head coach Wade Phillips. “I think a lot of head coach (Gary Kubiak), too.” 

The Texans organization has been ranked by Forbes Magazine as the ninth most valuable franchise in the world, but McNair has yet to enjoy a postseason. Jones, who’s celebrated three Super Bowl championships as owner of the Cowboys, says it’ll take time for the Texans to get where they want to be. 

“Were lucky to have him in the NFL,” Jones said. “He’s doing a heck of a job here. I know everybody anxious to win but everybody’s anxious all over this league to win.”
