A tale of two cities. A tale of two head coaches fighting for their jobs. One will triumph. One will scratch their heads as they look at their dismal 3-6 record. It's Desperation Bowl 2012. The outcome of this game will undoubtedly force one of these teams to make some tough decisions going forward, and former Dallas head coach Jimmy Johnson doesn't like what he sees from his old team: Johnson was a guest on the NFL Network's Dan Patrick Show: "The No. 1 motivator (in the NFL) is fear. Fear of maybe letting down your teammates or being embarrassed or chastised or fear of losing your job," Johnson told Patrick. "Where is the fear in Dallas? There is no fear in Dallas. It's a country club where everybody is buddies." "I think Jason is probably coaching for his job the rest of the year," Johnson said. "I think this game with Philadelphia, I think this game may decide the futures of players and coaches with those two teams." Owner Jerry Jones claims nothing has really changed over the years in his role as GM. The input head coaches have on personnel is the same as it ever was. Johnson scoffs at that claim: "That is completely a bunch of crock," he said. "You notice Jerry started putting all those titles on himself after I left. He didn't call himself general manager and president and all that stuff when I was there; he was the owner. Because it was in my contract that I had total responsibility for all football decisions; it was in my contract. He didn't allow anybody to have that in the contract after I left." var switchTo5x=true; stLight.options({publisher:''});
