It hasn't exactly been the smoothest of sailing when we're discussing the relationship between Dallas Cowboys owner/general manager Jerry Jones and former Super Bowl-winning head coach Jimmy Johnson.
Johnson, who led the Cowboys to back to back Super Bowl wins in 1992 and 1993, departed Dallas after it was reported that he wanted more control over personnel decisions - something that Jones wasn't willing to relinquish. Johnson was inducted into the Hall of Fame in 2020; however, he's yet to be inducted into the Cowboys Ring of Honor.
Johnson, who led the Cowboys to back to back Super Bowl wins in 1992 and 1993, departed Dallas after it was reported that he wanted more control over personnel decisions - something that Jones wasn't willing to relinquish.
In fact, Jones was quoted as saying that Johnson was "sniveling" over the Ring of Honor Dispute.
And now, another key former member of the Dallas Cowboys is speaking out against Jones, and it's none other than former quarterback Troy Aikman, who clearly does not appreciate Johnson being subbed.
“I thought it was the Dallas Cowboys Ring Honor,” Aikman said. “But he’s made it 'the Jerry Jones Ring of Honor.' It’s beyond disappointing that Jimmy’s not up there.”
“I speak for myself … but I also think I speak for everyone who played on those teams in the ’90s that Jimmy coached,” Aikman said. “I wouldn’t be in the Pro Football Hall of Fame – nor would Emmitt (Smith) or Michael (Irvin) or Charles Haley or anyone else – if it weren’t for what Jimmy meant to those teams. For him not to be represented … Jerry did say he would go in, and we thought it would have happened by now.”
