    Former Cowboys coach and current Fox analyst Jimmy Johnson is still asked questions about his one-time boss Jerry Jones, the Cowboys general manager and owner. And he's still answering them.

    In an exchange on Twitter this morning, someone asked Johnson (@JimmyJohnson) the following: "How well do u think Garrett is managing Jerry? I think Mr Jones intrudes."

    Johnson's response: "good have to put ego aside with J."

    One would think that after all this time, Jimmy would have clarified the role of direction and reference instead of role or responses. No wonder his ego chose to satisfy himself, and leave the Cowboys and then give up in Miami after a rather short stint there as well.

    And Oklahoma St..

    Jimmah Jenius said it himself that his style of coaching burns himself and everybody around him roughly every 5 years or so. The proof is in the pudding, though, and since alot of people believe in the bottom line only ( I'm not on that side ) the record is clear: Jimmah Jenius got everything he ever wanted down here and the only thing he accomplished was a ending his career in one of the most embarrassing and humilliating losses in playoffs, and NFL, history.

    He'll be remembered for what he HELPED to accomplish with the Cowboys, but obviously he wasn't the legend that some people want to give him credit for and he gleefully accepts.

    Target correct, Sir...but around the actual field, he got his players to 'walk' a two by four across the Twin Towers when they were still standing. I'll have to give him credit there.

    His players at Dallas, were loyal to him on the field. That he was good at...motivation around play.
