JIMMY JOHNSON: THERE’S NO FEAR IN DALLAS, IT’S A COUNTRY CLUB — FOX NFL SUNDAY analyst Jimmy Johnson joined Fox Sports Radio’s Dan Patrick show earlier today to discuss the current state of the Dallas Cowboys, Johnson’s coaching career in Dallas, head coach Jason Garrett’s position with the Cowboys, and working for Cowboys owner Jerry Jones.

JOHNSON ON COWBOYS OWNER / GENERAL MANAGER JERRY JONES WHO RECENTLY SAID THAT CURRENT HEAD COACH JASON GARRETT HAS THE SAME AMOUNT OF INPUT AS JOHNSON DID:  “(laughing) That is completely a bunch of crock!  Jerry started putting all those titles on himself after I left.  He didn’t call himself the general manager when I was there.  He was the owner.  It was in my contract that I had total responsibility for all football decisions.  He hasn’t allowed anybody to have that in their contract after I left.”

JOHNSON ON PLAYER MOTIVATION ACROSS THE NFL:  “All the players in this league think they’re self-motivated and that’s a bunch of bull because there are only a handful that are self-motivated.  So you’ve got to motivate these players through some respect but the No. 1 motivator is fear.  Fear of letting down your teammates, being embarrassed or fear of losing the job.  Where is the fear in Dallas?  There’s no fear in Dallas.  It’s a country club where everybody is buddies.”

JOHNSON ON WHETHER HE’D EXTEND CONTRACTS FOR QUARTERBACK TONY ROMO AND HEAD COACH JASON GARRETT IN DALLAS:  “I would extend Tony Romo unless I had somebody better and they don’t have anybody better.  Jason Garrett is probably coaching for his job for the rest of the year.  This game with Philadelphia on FOX may decide the future of coaches and players with those two teams.”

DAVIS: UNRANKED TCU CAN CHALLENGE UNDEFEATED K-STATE’S RUN GAME – The Horned Frogs have quite a test this weekend as they host No. 2-ranked and undefeated K-State Wildcats. FOX College Football analyst Charles Davis is looking forward to calling this weekend’s primetime matchup with Gus Johnson and Julie Alexandria and thinks unranked TCU has the tools to give K-State some serious competition. “TCU biggest problem has been their ability to put two back-to-back wins together,” said Davis. “I’m impressed by what they did in Morgantown but not surprised. Coming off an emotional West Virginia victory, it’ll be interesting to see how they respond. TCU has the No. 1 run defense in the Big 12 and K-State’s running game is going to challenge them. The Wildcats are fully committed to running the football for four quarters. TCU should match up well because they are coached well and that defense always seems to end up where they are supposed to be.”

“BATTLE ON THE MIDWAY” MOVED TO SUNDAY, NOV. 11 – FOX Sports Networks today released updated national television distribution for “Battle on the Midway,” which has been moved to Sunday, Nov. 11, because of weather concerns.
