Jimmy Johnson responds to Jerry Jones: NFL World reacts
After softening his stance by leaving former head coach and two-time Super Bowl champion Jimmy Johnson in the Dallas Cowboys’ ring of honor, Cowboys owner Jerry Jones has seemingly returned to his war of words with the coach. retired.
In a recent interview with Newy Scruggs, Jones said the decision to put Johnson in the Ring of Honor wouldn’t be “tailored to whether Jimmy whines or not.” As you can imagine, Johnson didn’t appreciate that.
“I had to look that word up in the dictionary. I don’t know if I’ve ever whined,” Johnson said during a recent appearance on the Dan the Bastard Show.
NFL fans are pretty evenly on Johnson’s side in this ongoing feud. Some have even suggested that the feud cursed the Cowboys for decades:
Once great friends, Jerry Jones and Jimmy Johnson fell out after their 1993 Super Bowl season, resulting in Johnson’s firing.
Although he delivered Jones two of his three Super Bowl rings, Jones adamantly refused to admit Johnson to the Cowboys’ Ring of Honor. Last year at the Hall of Fame, Jones apparently changed his mind and said Johnson would be allowed in.
Unfortunately, it seems time has allowed Jones to change his mind once again – much to the chagrin of Cowboys fans and the wider NFL world.
Will Jimmy Johnson ever be inducted into the Cowboys Ring of Honor?
