Jerry Jones "amazed" Dan Snyder hasn't won a Super Bowl

View more news videos at: http://www.nbcwashington.com/video.

Dan Snyder and Jerry Jones's ad campaign for Papa John's put the two men in the Cowboys' stadium at the same time. Add Lindsay Czarniak and a bizarre standing nibble on some pizza, and you have Lunch With Lindsay. A lunch, it should be noted, in which Jerry Jones said he was surprised Snyder has yet to win a Super Bowl during his NFL tenure.

"I know first-hand how much Dan puts into it," Jones said. "I know how much he put into it when he bought it. He paid the most that had ever been paid for anything in sports when he bought it. Having said that, I'm amazed that his team has not been [in] and won a Super Bowl, because of the energy he's put into it, the financial contribution that he's made to it. It's surprising to me. And I'm not gonna get into the word luck, bad luck, anything like that, but...."

The video cuts off then. Would love to know what the but was.

Anyhow, Snyder said the pair are "great offseason friends," and Jones praised the heck out of his fellow owner throughout the four-minute piece.

"It begins with how much I respect him," Jones said, as he joked about whether they should be serious. "No, seriously, Dan's one of the smartest people I've ever been around, and certainly one of the smarter people in the NFL. And his thoughts and ideas about the game and about where the NFL's going creates a lot of interest for me, by kind of saddling up or being involved. And it evolved to where we've become good friends."

"We just hit it off, became friends," Snyder added. "In the offseason, we've vacationed with families together, spend a lot of time. During the season we don't talk much, other than before pre-games a little bit."

"He's the worst owner in the NFL before the game," Jones said. "He literally gives you zero emotion before the game....Let me just say this, I think we ought to decide right here let's don't even walk across the field any more when we play each other. That's awkward. Let's wave."

And Snyder also discussed the Dallas-Washington rivalry, describing it as one of the NFL's best.

"It's tradition, it's legacy, it's history," Snyder said. "I don't want to call it the most important game in the regular season for both of us, but I think it probably has a little extra meaning above and beyond almost any other rivalry in the NFL. So we've been fortunate that we're friends in the offseason, friends off the field, but when it comes to the rivalry we both give our heart and soul to it."

Maybe he meant he was surprised Snyder hadn't won as a player

Only extensive plastic surgery allowed Jerrah to keep a straight face during that bullbleep. Deep in his heart, he's thinking, "Dan Snyder doesn't know a football player from a freakin' accordion; he'll win a Super Bowl when he figures THAT out."

OH MAN... Dan Snyder, if you or one of your lackys is reading this, please don't take the bait. Jerry Jones is simply doing this to butter you up, make you feel complacent and say "you know what, I have been running things the right way these last 10 years. I'm smart, I'm putting in the energy, it's not my fault the wins haven't come. It's been bad luck, etc."
DON'T FALL FOR IT DAN!
Aside from the graceful way you handled #21's passing, the most respect I ever had for you was when you finally (for all intents and purposes) admitted you'd been wrong, canned Vinny and finally gave control to a real GM and a real coach.
You recognized that things needed to truly change and you pulled the trigger.
Don't let Jerry charm you back into thinking you had been doing things right all along and that the breaks just hadn't been going your way. He benefits more than anyone else from 10 more years of mediocraty from our franchise.
Don't listen to him Dan. Don't listen. DON'T FALL FOR THE BANANA IN THE TAILPIPE!

Jerry loves Dan the way Idi Amin loved Americans.
He has two for breakfast everyday!

I think you mean 20 years of mediocrity, that is, if you consider way under .500 to be mediocre.

Skeletor is evil and should not be trusted, Dan. Why are you guys pitching pizza, anyway?

what a great combination Dan and Jerry are... almost like peanut butter and jelly or pizza and beer, but more like Mutt and Jeff or Fred and Barney or Andy and Barney or Yogi and Boo-Boo or Thelma and Louise or dumb and dumber,or... well you get the picture...

Don't flatter yourself, Dany Boy. The rivalry has been on life support sense you sadly took control of the Redskins away from the Cooke family. You can't put a decent product on the field to even compete against the Cowboys for most of your ownership. Evry Redskin fan I know hates the Cowboys , especially Jerrah. Yet, he's your friend and your families vacation together. JKC must be turning over in his grave. Pass me a barf bag!

Then to Danny-boy I say, VLURP!

And to the thought of eating Pappa John's pizza I say , VLURP!!

Let's review the evidence on Dan Snyder's judgment:
- His choice of friends
- His choice of overpaid free agents
- His choice of pizza

How on earth did this guy ever get rich?

These Clowns walking the field before the game. Jones on the sidelines during games. What is that all about? Field Generals checking on the battle field before the 1st shot? Motivating the troops? What a joke.

Ugh, OK, I have officially vomited over my desk and computer.

I know now the skins are dead in the water this season. Bu then again, this is a given in the Snyder era.

No, the video cuts off after "if everyone would live and breath it...", after which I assume we could add, "like Dan, then the world would be a better place" or some such.

Nice camerawork showing that Czarniak is taking a working lunch. At least someone realized there was pizza.

Jones loves Snyder because he knows Danny doesn't have a clue. If Snyder actually posed a threat to Jones and his Cowboys, they wouldn't be so chummy........

Somewhere at the Redskins offices, the following conversation took place:

"Dan, we need to show you as being more human. Let's set up a lunch with the owner of your most bitter of rivals."

And the smartest man Jerry Jones knows said yes.

I guess that summed up everything we need to know about Danny "The Boy" Snyder. Move to Dallas you Bleep bleeping Bleep Bleep

Jerry Jones and Dan Snyder are buddies. Wade Phillips is cozy with Mike Shanahan (Courtesy of Jason Reid's blog). So Sunday night it is going to be more of family reunion, get together and picnic at Fedex. So where is this rivalry?

Posted by: KarK | September 8, 2010 4:53 PM | Report abuse

This is sickening. JKC would never have had breakfast with Tex Schramm, let alone vacationed with him.

Posted by: clark202 | September 9, 2010 2:50 PM | Report abuse

The only thing creepier than vacationing with Dan Snyder OR Jerry Jones is vacationing with both of them.

Now how does that old saying go? "Birds of a feather..."

One more thing. Let me take a few moments to add up all the Super Bowl rings these two clowns put together have earned over the last ten years. Let's see. That would be...uh...zero?
