Jimmy Johnson won a couple of Super Bowls as Cowboys coach, and that was after he won a college national championship at Miami..

So, he has some props, which he uses on Fox as an NFL analyst.

And he had been a skeptic about the 2022 Eagles, which won him no fans in Eagles Nation.

But he thinks Cowboys owner and GM Jerry Jones is way off base about these Eagles.

“Anybody who thinks I won’t take a chance, has misread the tea leaves. But I do think longer term,” Jones said, according to The Athletic.

“And I’m real hesitant to bet it all for a year. There’s a lot of things that can happen for that year. In essence, we’re seeing a couple of teams that have had some real success putting it all out there and paying for it later, in Philadelphia and Los Angeles.”

Johnson Eagles owner Jeff Lurie called him to decipher Jones’ comments.

“I said, ‘I have no idea,’” Johnson told the Inky.

“Philadelphia has a couple of first round picks in the [upcoming] NFL Draft. They’ve got extra picks down the road. They’ve got some very talented players. They’ve got some talented young players.”

“I think the Philadelphia Eagles are gonna’ be good for a long time,” Johnson said.

In November, Johnson said he wasn’t “100% sold on Philadelphia.”

“Unfortunately, I was one of the doubters on Jalen Hurts,” Johnson said.

“I didn’t know him personally, I didn’t realize how hard he worked, and I didn’t realize how much he was going to improve. He has come a million miles from day one, and is an outstanding franchise quarterback now.”
