I wouldn't go that far.
I think he occasionally meddles in decisions, but as far as running things completely, doubt it.
And honestly, I won't be surprised if the occasional meddling stops too now that Marty Hurney is gone. I'd be surprised if Ernie Accorsi hadn't said something to him like "you need to let the guys you hire do their jobs".
I hope you're right, but I feel like I've been putting together a large dot-to-dot puzzle since the inception of this franchise. There are lots of little dots all over the place, and by themselves they don't really tell the story, but as the lines connect, I feel like I'm seeing a picture that paints JR in a light that isn't too different from- other than outward appearances- a Jerry Jones.
I'm VERY interested in who - if anyone other than Beane- becomes our new GM.
