Jerry Jones says he has the brain of a 40-year-old

Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones says he has the brain of a 40-year-old man.

(Sometimes, these things just write themselves.)

Jones, 70, says he can prove that he has a “super” brain, too. He gleaned this important bit of info from a doctor after a recent physical.

“I’ve been told that I have, by CAT Scans, that it’s like the brain of a 40-year-old,” Jones said (via the Dallas Morning News). “…The guy really did not know it was me. I was there anonymously. He said, ‘And so I just wanted to come down. I saw your chart. I know how old you are. That part is really impressive.’”

Evidently, the doc has been too busy to notice the two-playoff victories over 17 seasons and questionable moves Jerry the GM has made. Or maybe he’s a Redskins fan.
