It appears famous Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones has accepted mediocrity. In his team's last three seasons, the Cowboys have won exactly half of their games and made no playoff appearances. Despite the average record, Jones continues to choose to make few changes to his team.

Many suspected Jones could fire head coach Jason Garrett after the 2013 season, but Jones remained steadfast in his commitment to Garrett. For the third straight season, the Cowboys had a chance to win the NFC East in the last game of the regular season, but Dallas has lost all three. Tony Romo, the most important player on the Cowboys roster, signed a long-term extension last season, so don't expect any change at the quarterback position.

One person who certainly won't be fired in Dallas is the general manager, since Jones put himself in that position. Though no names made headlines, Dallas did lose three coaches this offseason: kicking coach Chris Boniol, offensive assistant Dave Borgonzi and tight ends coach Wes Phillips.

Despite the continued failure in Washington, Redskins owner Dan Snyder attempts to to address problems. Snyder also knows enough to remove himself from much of the football decision-making. For the third straight season, Jones refuses to make similar changes.
