      If you want to do a good beef. Do Denny Green and the Viking management and sports writers in 1996 and 1997.

      +SB Nation We know why Jones and Johnson fell out. It's actually very well known. Jimmy Johnson refused to publicly share the credit of building the dynasty with Jerry Jones, this infuriated Jones and in response Johnson went on a tear of making fun of Jones inside the organization (Jones talked about this during an ESPN mini-doc years ago). Jones eventually got fed up with Johnson's disrespect and told Johnson it was time to go. That whole "mutual agreement" press conference was bullshit to divert the media from making more of a deal of the situation (which they did anyway), but it was a cover with some pressure from Jones' legal team having to do with Johnson's timidness during the conference. It wasn't mutual, Johnson was fired.

      Jones and Johnson have since patched things up, but the sad part is that had they done this while they were a team, that team could've probably gotten 2 more titles. Barry Switzer was a great football coach, but by the time he reached Dallas he was out of gas as a leader and didn't have what it took to keep the team in line long-term.

                FYI Bayless did not become a household name because of his Aikman Switzer book. He became one when he wrote a book that dared to criticize Tom Landry some years earlier.
                That was the thing that put him on the map and made his reputation. And caused many of the Dallas faithful to hate Bayless to this day,
                In fact you should research that book of his, it's worthy of a video itself. The book was titled "God's Coach"

                    Skip Bayless knows nothing about sports, he only has a job because of how ESPN probably thinks the drama he makes will attract more veiwers but he's an idiot.

                            To be honest, I really am not a big fan of Aikman, he's overrated as emmitt smith and Micheal Irvin carried him. I also dont like him as a football announcer, he always wants the cowboys to win and also says stupid things about other teams.

                                John Blake never alleged Aikman used a racial slur. You just said that. He alleged Aikman only castigated black players never white ones. As the guys he castigated were the guys he directly worked with no one on the team took it seriously.

                                    Switzer won on the fumes of Jimmie Johnson. He didn’t earn it. He got it spite of his self.

                                                          Ah, this very inaccurate. Jimmy Johnson tried to recruit Troy Aikman twice! First, to Oklahoma State. Then later to Miami. As for Jimmy Johnson calling Troy Aikman a loser, that's a bold faced LIE! Even Michael Irvin said Troy Aikman was a much better QB than Steve Walsh. You might need to check your facts before you wreck yourself. Maybe that's why you're on YouTube instead of a major network. Where did you get your information, the National Enquirer?

I remember when he started in Dallas, and no matter what Dallas did, Bayless always had something bad to say about them. He hated the Cowboys, he hated the City. He hated Landry. He hated everything about Dallas. And if you said "America's Team" he'd go into seizure mode.

All Aikman had to do was play decent, nothing special, and the unbeaten streak could’ve continued. Well, Aikman sucked balls and OU got destroyed by Kansas, who were an awful football team. Troy went 5-21 with 3 interceptions. God awful! Aikman did nothing at OU except cause misery, and Jerome Brown did us Sooner fans all a favor. So for Aikman to be pissed at Barry is rich.

That being black players are more likely to be the "skilled" pos players ie rbs wrs dbs. Aka the ones who make much more of a visable difference in the teams performance.

                                                                                        • Keith Ratel

If Jimmy wasn't coming back then Norv should have been promoted. Jimmy wanted a puppet and basically a bad coach to "prove" he didn't need Jimmy or a good coach to win.

                                                                                            • Kevin Myers
