At this point, Dallas Cowboys fans have given up hope that Jerry Jones will allow Jimmy Johnson into the team's Ring of Honor.
2023 seemed like the perfect year for Jones to do right by Johnson, but the Cowboys owner announced in June that there is no plan to add anybody to the Ring of Honor. That changed in August, however, when Jones announced that newly-minted Hall of Famer DeMarcus Ware will go into the Ring of Honor later this season.
It's a deserved milestone for Ware, the Cowboys' all-time leader in sacks, but adds to growing frustration about Johnson's continued snub.
It's anyone's guess if Jones will change his mind, but fans got their hopes up before Dallas' Week 6 game against the LA Chargers. After wrapping up their own pregame interviews, Jones and Johnson met along the sidelines and spoke for nearly 10 minutes.
Cowboys News: Walt Garrison passes away, Jerry Jones-Jimmy Johnson, Terrell Owens
Jones has maintained that Johnson will eventually get into the Ring of Honor. Whether Jones is posturing or actually means is unclear. After all, Jones is the only individual permitted to elect people for the Ring of Honor. He's a one-man committee.
In other Cowboys news, former wide receiver Terrell Owens was struck by a car in Calabasas, California on Monday night following an argument with a man while playing pickup basketball. The unidentified man drove his vehicle into Owens targeting the Hall of Famer's knee, per TMZ.
Owens luckily didn't require medical assistance. No arrests have been made as of Wednesday, and authorities didn't reveal what charges the man could face.
This is the second "altercation" involving Owens in the last calendar year. In November, Owens was involved in a fight caught on camera in a CVS parking lot. Owens told the media he acted in self-defense after he and a fan were heckled and threatened.
Finally, it was an emotional week for Cowboys Nation as former running back Walt Garrison passed away at 79 years old.
A former fifth-round pick out of Oklahoma State, Garrison played all nine seasons of his career in Dallas and retired in the top five in Cowboys history as a runner and receiver. He's still ninth in franchise history with 3,491 rushing yards.
Garrison competed as a Cowboy during the NFL offseason and famously led the Big Eight in rushing in 1964 when he beat out the late great Gale Sayers.
We send our condolences to Garrison's family during this difficult time.
