Jimmy Johnson shades Jerry Jones for infamously bad relationship. Kyle Terada-USA TODAY Sports

Jimmy Johnson won two Super Bowl titles with the Dallas Cowboys, but his infamously bad relationship with owner Jerry Jones has kept him out of the team’s Ring of Honor.

Johnson will be inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame this year, but Ring of Honor recognition does not seem to be coming with it. On Sunday, a fan asked him how he would feel if Jones inducted the former coach into the Ring of Honor, and Johnson’s answer spoke volumes.

Perhaps Johnson misread the question and thought he was being asked about his Hall of Fame induction, but we’re guessing Johnson responded exactly as he intended to.

In short, Johnson’s Hall of Fame induction means a lot to him, as we’ve already seen. The Ring of Honor does not. Jones does not like Johnson, and the feeling seems to be mutual, and it’s best left at that.
