Jerry Jones Has Message For Former Cowboys Coach

Jerry Jones has a message for former Cowboys coach Jimmy Johnson.

On Sunday evening, Jones offered his response to Johnson being elected into the Pro Football Hall of Fame.

The former Dallas head honcho turned Fox NFL analyst was surprised with the news during halftime of the Green Bay Packers versus Seattle Seahawks showdown.

“We’re so happy that the Hall of Fame has recognized Jimmy Johnson for what he is,” Jones said.

“A great coach. To Jimmy I say, ‘The stars were aligned and our dreams came true when we joined the Dallas Cowboys.’ And on behalf of the Cowboys, and our fans all over the world, I say congratulations Jimmy.

“We’re proud of you.”

Jones and Johnson enjoyed an immense amount of success together in the 1990s. While the pair disagreed on the direction of the Cowboys and their strong personalities often clashed, their results were undeniable.

Overall Dallas won three Super Bowls thanks to the efforts made by Jones and Johnson, and their work together will forever go down in NFL history.

  1. It’s a shame that the Hall of Fame can put Jimmy Johnson in there Ring of Honor but that Jerry Jones can’t put him in the Ring of Honor at AT&T Stadium where he deserves to be. NBC wants to pay Tony Romo over 10 million dollars to be on Monday Night Football looks like the person in Dallas running the ship doesn’t know all the right things to do with the right people congratulations Jimmy Johnson

  2. I luv what JJ and Jimmy Johnson did together with their team. Troy Aikman will always be remembered as one of the best QB’s ever!
    I do wonder JJ why I never see Emmitt Smith doesn’t show up in the games like he use to. I do pray it’s not bc of an illness or that u 2 could be not speaking! My prayer is that ur heart is softened by a touch from God! All the fans want is ur acknowledgement that Jimmy Johnson gets what he deserves in the Dallas Cowboys stadium. Being humble to this issue will gain you and our Cowboys more respect than u can imagine! I’m an avid Cowboy fan and have been since Tom Landry and Roger Stauback! God Bless u Jerry,plz do the right thing for the fans… ty
