Jerry Jones' Son Toughest Decision I Ever Made? ... Benching Tony Romo

11/29/2016 12:29 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF
Breaking News

It wasn't passing on Johnny Manziel ... it wasn't the Greg Hardy situation -- Dallas Cowboys bigwig Stephen Jones says the hardest decision he's made in the front office is benching Tony Romo

Stephen -- the Cowboys CEO and Director of Player Personnel (and also Jerry's son) -- did a video Q&A with fans moments ago ... and was asked to name the most difficult Cowboys decision he's had to make. 

Without hesitation, Stephen explained why forcing Tony to take a back seat to Dak Prescott was especially tough for him.

By the way, he did the interview with a painting of Tony Romo over his left shoulder.

Jones keeps referencing Dak's "hot hand" -- which makes it seem like he's ready to turn right back to Tony if that hand happens to cool off.

Also, interesting Stephen is taking credit for the move ... and not head coach Jason Garrett.

But we knew that already ... right?

First off, Tony Dorsett is awesome. 

Second, the Dallas Cowboys legend explains why he's a HUUUGE Ezekiel Elliott fan -- and will be rooting for the guy to break his Cowboys rookie rushing record.

The Hall of Famer says he knows his record is going down -- but says Zeke might need an asterisk next his name in the Cowboys record book. Check out the clip and see if you agree!

Billy Gardell says it's not time to jump off the Big Ben bandwagon just yet ... but the "Mike and Molly" star admits the bandwagon needs one thing -- a good backup driver.

We got Gardell out in NYC Monday and asked the lifelong Steelers fan how he felt about the gut-wrenching loss to the Dallas Daks this past Sunday.

Pittsburgh is now 4-5 and a lot of people are wondering if it's time to start searching for the heir apparent to Roethlisberger ... now that his injury, and age -- he's 34 -- are becoming a factor.

Billy makes it plain ... Ben's still got his heart, but it might be time for the Steelers to find their Tony Romo ... a qualified and dependable backup.

It's funny 'cause it's true.

Breaking News

Dallas Cowboys receiver Cole Beasley wants to make two things clear -- he is NOT a LeBron James fan and was NOT imitating the Cavs superstar with his TD celebration this weekend against the Browns.

Beasley caused a stir with Cleveland fans after his 2nd quarter TD grab on Sunday when his 'saucy feet' dance got confused with LBJ's famous chalk toss pre-game ritual ... leaving fans to assume CB was mocking the Chosen One. 

Turns out Beasley was not throwing any shade at the King ... telling 105.3 The Fan in Dallas, "I would never imitate anything LeBron James does."

"He's not my type of guy. I'm a Kobe guy," Beasley says. "He goes to the bucket like he's a running back and wants to cry when someone touches his arm. He's just not my type of guy, man."

BTW ... LBJ is a HUGE Cowboys fan ... but Beasley clearly doesn't care.

But that was then ... before Dak Prescott led the Cowboys to the top of the NFC East with an impressive 5-1 record ... while only throwing ONE interception.

"As Dak improves and gets more acclimated to the NFL game, that offense -- the sky is the limit."
