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.
The day Jimmy Johnson said he was leaving was the day I stopped being a Cowboys fan....
