Former Cowboys head coach Jimmy Johnson might be in the Pro Football Hall of Fame, but the Cowboys’ own Ring of Honor remains elusive. Cowboys Owner Jerry Jones said Sunday in an interview with Channel 5′s Newy Scruggs, that Johnson would be put in the Ring of Honor. It just wasn’t the right circumstances yet.

Johnson went on The Dan LeBatard Show with Stugotz to briefly discuss his ongoing feud with Jones, and Jones’ recent comment from Sunday saying, ‘It isn’t, at the end of the day, tailored around whether Jimmy is sniveling or not.’

NBC 5's Newy Scruggs and Tim Cowlishaw of the Dallas Morning News discuss Jerry Jones' recent remarks about whether or not to put Jimmy Johnson in the Cowboys' Ring of Honor.

Here’s what Johnson had to say.

“I had to look that word up in the dictionary. I don’t know that I’ve ever sniveled. Do you ever remember me sniveling?” Johnson asked.
