Dallas Cowboys to induct Jimmy Johnson into Ring of Honor, Jerry Jones says

Jerry Jones, the Dallas Cowboys general manager and owner of the Cowboys, did not specify when it would occur. However, he announced Thursday night that Jimmy Johnson would be inducted into Cowboys' Ring of Honor.Johnson will be inducted into Pro Football Hall of Fame on Saturday. Jones previously stated that he didn't want to take away that moment from discussions about when or if Johnson would receive the Ring of Honor.Jones stated that he believes we have great days ahead of ourselves on the FOX pregame program before the Cowboys took on the Pittsburgh Steelers in a Hall of Fame Game. We will certainly recognize what's happening with the Hall of Fame. However, Tex Schramm who created the Ring of Honor said that Jerry, keep the conversation with people limited, but it shouldn't be about their plays. You must ensure that they have contributed to the franchise's story. It's hard to not recognize Johnson's contribution to the franchise's story.Johnson, Jones' former Arkansas teammate joked about when induction would take place, saying, "While i'm still alive?"Johnson took the Cowboys to prominence after a record of 1-15 in 1989 as he replaced Tom Landry. He won Super Bowls XXVII, XXVIII, and XXVII. After the second championship, Johnson and Jones had a disagreement. However, Johnson deserves a lot of credit for the Cowboys' victory in Super Bowl XXX, under Barry Switzer. This win made Dallas the first team to win three Super Bowls in a span of four years.Johnson was a Cowboys' player for five seasons. He had a record of 44-36 and was 7-1 in the playoffs.Jones was heartbroken about Johnson's breakup at the beginning of training camp."Ridiculous. Jones later choked up, stating that my role was to keep the place together. It was my job. Should have shown deference to something that was doing well. These are the thoughts that come to mind. It was a wonderful experience. He is a great coach and I am proud to call him a friend. We had some amazing times together. It was a wonderful experience.Johnson was interviewed last month about the Ring of Honor in Key Largo (Florida).Johnson stated that Johnson believes other people are more concerned about the Ring of Honor than I am. "Jerry has told me many times that he will put me in the Ring of Honor. I believe that Jerry will feel like it whenever he feels like it. That is fine with Jerry. I am proud of what we accomplished, and I know how much.Johnson hugged Jones at the end of Thursday's interview."Our successes would not have happened without Emmitt [Smith] as well as Michael [Irvin]. "It took both of these men in order for me to achieve," Hall of Fame quarterback Troy Aikman stated on the pregame program. Jerry and his ownership made Jimmy the coach he is today, but Jerry would not have been the owner and Jimmy the head coach. We were the beneficiaries. It's great to see them together. It's exactly what we all hoped for."
