Myth 2: Jimmy Johnson:
So we all know the story about Jimmy and Jerry. It was one of the most reported on sports stories in the 90s. Because of egos, the greatest dynasty was breaking apart and who knew how long that success train would last if both men were on board. Now, people still to this day it was all Jerry’s fault for the divorce. Those people have some good points, but Jimmy is at fault as well. Jimmy had an ego that would take precedent over any kind of conversation. He had to do things his way and there was no discussion about it. Jerry trying to get credit about certain GM moves was a petty thing to get upset over, even though Jerry had some big input on that. Jimmy didn’t want to get along with his owner and Jerry did what he needed too and fired him. I have to side on Jerry on this one, because Jimmy was just trying to poke a sleeping bear.
