Jimmy Johnson: Cowboys' video boards are just fine

ARLINGTON, Texas — Jimmy Johnson loves the video boards at Cowboys Stadium right where they are.

Johnson was in the $1.15 billion new home of his former team in June for the first-ever event, a concert featuring George Strait and Reba McEntire, and couldn't take his eyes off the screens. He returned Thursday to film a commercial and still thinks they're just fine, even if a punt him them during a preseason game last weekend.

The bottom of the video boards are 90 feet over the middle of the field, which is 5 feet above the league's minimum. However, they stretch 60 yards long, making them more of a target.

Cowboys owner Jerry Jones is adamantly against changing anything, and Johnson agrees.
