Gailey has no hard feelings for Jerry
By Tim MacMahon
INDIANAPOLIS -- Jerry Jones has said repeatedly that his biggest regret as the Cowboys owner is that he canned Chan Gailey after only two seasons.
Gailey had to wait more than a decade to get another NFL head coaching job, but he has no bitterness toward Jones.
"Jerry was very good while we were in Dallas," said Gailey, who was recently hired by the Buffalo Bills. "I will not disagree with his statement, but at the same time, he’s the owner and he’s got to do what he thinks is best and right at the time.
"If you haven’t made a mistake in this world – and I’m not saying he did or he didn’t – but if you haven’t made a mistake in this world, then you haven’t made decisions."
