Wait a second... that's not what happened is it?

The bad relationship started when Jerry got drunk and stated running his mouth...

Look at Jerry's wiki page:

After the 1993 Super Bowl victory, reports began to surface in the media that Jones had made the statement that "any one of 500 coaches could have won those Super Bowls", given the type of talent that he (Jones) had drafted and signed for the team. Jones also stated to reporters at a late night cocktail party that he intended to replace Johnson with former University of Oklahoma coach Barry Switzer. The next morning, however, Jones famously denied those reports by stating that it "was the whiskey talking". Johnson was eventually forced out in 1994 and Switzer was hired to be the new head coach.

Jimmy drafted those teams and Jerry was trying to take credit...

And that is a very $hitty thing to do.

No way in hell did Jerry make the final decisions on those drafts.
That was all Jimmy... In fact, you have it completely backwards...
Jerry Jones wanted to make all the draft picks and he knew Jimmy would
have a problem with that...

Interesting read on the Herschel Walker trade also.
