Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones says Hall-of-Fame cornerback Deion "Prime Time" Sanders could have shut down Calvin "Megatron" Johnson had they played in the same era.

Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones has a formula to stop Detroit Lions superstar wide receiver Calvin "Megatron" Johnson: Deion Sanders

Jones' proclamation on his radio show on KRLD-FM was made in the light of Johnson's 329-yard performance in a game against the Cowboys on Oct. 27, which the Lions won, 31-30. 

He was asked if Sanders, a former Cowboy and Hall of Famer, could put the clamps on Megatron.

"Yes, I do. That's just it. Deion has such catch-up speed and he had real good center-field ability, and I mean that...in (a) football sense. He could really play the ball, and he had such ability to get into position to play the ball. 

"Now, you're talking about the greatest cover guy maybe that's played this game. I've seen where he's been declared the greatest cover guy. Hall of Famer. But I do think he could do a real good job on Johnson. 

"Johnson's going to get some probably, but I think he could do a great job. Deion's a great player." 

Sanders took to Twitter to express his own thoughts about the matter. 

"Fans it's not fair to compare Then to Now! I realize it's fun and these kids can play but This Ain't THAT. Truth

"So please stop asking me can I cover these kids 2day. They are GREAT. But I played against Receivers and Quarterbacks whom shaped this game!"

Sanders, who is now an NFL analyst, played for Dallas from 1995-1999. His stint with the Cowboys is part of an illustrious 14-year career which saw him registering 53 interceptions for nine touchdowns. 

He was inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame in 2011.

Jameis Winston: A 360-Degree View of College Football's Most Polarizing Figure

Aug 27 2014 7:24am CDT | Source: Bleacher Report

He is a brilliant young man who does stupid things, a Heisman Trophy winner with an infectious smile who is the target of insidious accusations, a dual-sport star with what appears to be a dual personality. A few years ago, few had even heard of Jameis Winston, the Florida State quarterback who is also an outfielder and relief pitcher on the Seminoles baseball team. And now? Now, the national spotlight bathes him—initially i ...

Emmanuel Mudiay Would've Just Been Screwed If He Were a Football Player

Aug 7 2014 2:50pm CDT | Source: The Big Lead

Emmanuel Mudiay missed out on what was probably only going to be one season playing for Larry Brown at SMU, signing last month with Guangdong of the Chinese Basketball Association. Adrian Wojnarowski pegged the deal at $1.2 million, and many have wondered whether this type of deal will become the norm for players who, like Mudiay, project as NBA lottery picks — especially if the league follows through on its hopes to increase the age limit. Mudiay said in a statement that ...

Michigan Football: Team Hungry to Succeed After Offseason Changes

Aug 6 2014 9:09am CDT | Source: Bleacher Report

Michigan flamed out at the end of last season, dropping five out of its last six games to finish a mediocre 7-6. That isn’t what Michigan fans expected from Brady Hoke. The disappointing record drove Hoke to hire a new offensive coordinator and reshuffle his defensive staff. The changes have transformed a team that was dispirited and broken after last season into a group eager to face a difficult road schedule that sends the Wolverines to play at Notre Dame, Michigan State and Ohio State. “Th ...

Which colleges have produced the most Pro Football Hall of Famers?

Aug 3 2014 1:22pm CDT | Source: SBNation

Same as the College Football Hall of Fame: USC and Notre Dame. College football has its own hall of fame, but that doesn't mean we can't pay attention to the professional version in Canton -- most of these guys did play college ball, after all. The induction ceremony took place Saturday night, with Michael Strahan, Derrick Brooks, Ray Guy, Claude Humphrey, Walter Jones, Andre Reed and Ae ...

Walter Jones, the quiet giant goes to Canton

Jul 30 2014 9:28am CDT | Source: SBNation

Walter Jones didn't need to go to training camp or be outspoken. He just showed up and dominated for more than a decade. Now he's headed to the Hall of Fame. Walter Jones is the prime football example of a walking contradiction. A quiet, soft-spoken and humble man that just so happens to be probably the greatest left tackle to ever play the game. A guy that seemed to make it a yearly tradition of holding out of traini ...

High School Star Emmanuel Mudiay Shows Why College Basketball Is A Joke With $1.2 Million Deal In China

Jul 22 2014 12:48pm CDT | Source: SportsGrid

How much is one year of college education worth? Divide that number (whatever it may be) by the fact that college athletes don’t get nearly as much value from their degrees as regular students (you saw that UNC “paper” on Rosa Parks, right?) and you’ll get just a fraction of what Emmanuel Mudiay is going to make by playing in China next year rather than attending college. Mudiay, a 19-year-old high school star who had eligibility ...
