FOX NFL analyst Jimmy Johnson joined the show to talk about the big stories in the NFL.

Johnson weighed in on a recent comment from Jerry Jones that Jason Garrett has the same amount of control as he did. Johnson said he had it written in his contract that he was in control of the football side and he was the last coach with that control. Johnson said that his biggest point of pride is brining all that talent to Dallas, not coaching it.

“That is completely a bunch of crock,” Johnson said. “You know Jerry started putting on all those titles on himself after I left. They didn’t call him General Manager or President when I was there. It was in my contract that I had total responsibility for all football decisions.”

Johnson shared his opinion on what’s really wrong in Big D: “Here’s the only problem. You’ve got to motivate these players. Some of them you’ve got to drive. The number one motivator is fear, maybe fear of letting down your teammates or being embarrassed or fear of losing the job. So where’s the fear in Dallas? There’s no fear in Dallas. It’s a country club where everybody is buddies.”

Johnson said that the problem in Dallas is that it’s a “county club” and people don’t have fear for their jobs.

Johnson also weighed in on Jason Garrett’s future. “I think Jason is probably coaching for his job for the rest of the year,” Johnson said. “I think this game with Philadelphia may decide the futures of coaches and players with those two teams.”

Dan asked if he thinks Michael Vick and Andy Reid are tied together. He said at this point, everyone is fighting for their themselves in Dallas and Philly.

Dan asked Johnson if he thinks Nick Saban will come back to the NFL. “No, not at all,” Johnson said. “His wife hated it. He did not like it. There’s no way he could have the control of these players he has in college.”

Dan asked Johnson if he could go back to one of his former jobs, which would it be. He said Miami, because it was the most fun. He said Dallas was tough. “Back to back Super Bowls was rewarding, but it was a grind,” Johnson said.
