    I want the dirt on JJ and Jerry's relationship. Keep up the play by play for us.

    Thanks, Wolf

    Much to the happiness of Houston in general, Johnson would have had that team a true dynasty but for Jones. They would have been four straight and who knows what else without the coaching changes.

    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.

    I really enjoy Football Life. The Jimmy Johnson story was no different and brought back lots of memories. That was a long time ago, but seeminly I recall that Switzer and Johnson weren't on friendly terms, and Jerry possibly hired him as a replacement out of spite.
