Default Re: A football life:Jimmy Johnson

I love this series (A Football Life), and the one about Jimmy Johnson was no different.

I had no idea that Jimmy and Jerry played in Arkansas together, and that Barry Switzer was a coach for that team. Now it all makes sense!

If Jerry wasn't such an asshat, he'd have at least 1-2 more rings, IMO. Jimmy wasn't done, but Jerry's ego undermined everything and continues to do so today.

Like was mentioned by Belichick (iirc), someone experiencing championships at three levels - player, college coach, pro coach - is amazing and quite an achievement. Very cool to see a full picture of Jimmy, and loved the Survivor story.
