ARLINGTON, Texas (FOX 26) - Following the Dallas Cowboys win over the New Orleans Saints at AT&T Stadium in Arlington, Cowboys owner Jerry Jones met with reporters and praised Houston Texans owner Bob McNair, who passed away in November.
"His contributions were frankly, without stretching anything, they were so substantive," described Jones about McNair to FOX 26 News reporter CoCo Dominguez. "He had a great background. He had made a huge commitment. He had been broke in his career and got back up on his feet. That's what football is. And everybody in the room admired him."
"He particularly loved his players," added Jones in reference to McNair. "That business of an issue of him talking about his players, he did not in any way talk about his players. He was talking about people in the front office."
"Bob was an innovator," said retired Cowboys wide receiver Michael Irvin in an interview with Dominguez. "I talk with Jerry Jones a lot about him and everything and just the kind of man he was. He was a giving man, cared a great deal about his players, cared a great deal about the game we all love, the NFL and he did so much to bring the game, he brought the game back to Houston after Houston lost the Oilers."
