Few names in the world of football, college and NFL alike, evoke as much respectful awe as Jimmy Johnson.

Johnson's career in the world of football is about as illustrious as they come. All told, he was a part of four championship teams—one as a player at the University of Arkansas in 1964, one as the head coach at the University of Miami in 1987, and two as the boss of the Dallas Cowboys in 1993 and 1994.

Nowadays, Johnson is most visible as an analyst on Fox NFL Sunday, the network's weekly pregame show, and as a short-lived contestant on Survivor: Nicaragua.

I recently had the opportunity to sit down for a round-table discussion with Johnson at Duke's in Huntington Beach, California, where he was promoting the Crown Royal Jimmy Bowl.

As expected, Johnson was never at a loss for words, with opinions on everything from the Cowboys' current state of affairs to surviving in a Nicaraguan jungle, to Michael Vick's renaissance to life after football.

Read on to see what this maven of the midway had to say.
