Jimmy Johnson calls Cowboys owner Jerry Jones an a*****e

Football News

Former Dallas Cowboys two-time Super Bowl winning head coach Jimmy Johnson this week described Jerry Jones as an asshole in an explosive interview.

Johnson's comments came in the wake of several insulting remarks by Jones this week, with the Cowboys head honcho speaking in regards to Johnson's continued absence from the Cowboys Ring of Honor.

Misguided approach

Jerry Jones has a lot of issues. The owner, president and general manager of the Dallas Cowboys is still struggling to recreate past glories.

His Cowboys won the Super Bowl three times during the 1990's, but since that last Super Bowl win on January 28th in 1996, Dallas have only won one playoff game since, let alone a title.

Many Cowboys fans criticize and blame Jerry Jones himself for the downfall of Dallas in that time, and who could really blame them?

Jones has admitted himself that he has made some mistakes in recent years. Most notably, he admitted signing DeMarcus Ware to such a big contract was a mistake and restricted what the Cowboys could do with the rest of the salary cap. 

Still angry 

But there is still one contentious decision made by Jerry Jones that he believes he got right. That decision was the sacking of two-time Cowboys Super Bowl winning coach Jimmy Johnson, and even now, Jones believes Johnson never did enough to warrant a place on the team's Ring of Honor.

"In the Ring of Honor, the last word is honor," Jones told ESPN. "And so you have to give that some thought and we have to look at the definition."

Brutal response

And it is these comments that have really angered Jimmy Johnson this week, so much so that the former Cowboys head coach went off on an expletive rant at Jones' expense.

Johnson admitted that he had read Jones' comments, with his response being that he felt Jones came across “about like I expected. Jerry comes across as a rich asshole.”

Fair play to Jimmy Johnson for his frank response. If you're not going to be in the Ring of Honor, you might as well compound everything and make sure you go out with an explosive rant.
