06:49 AM ET 10.21 | Why is it that Bill Cowher is never seriously considered as the next Cowboy head coach? Cowher will probably have better options such as the New York Giants. Plus, we don't know how inclined Jerry Jones is to give another coach so much power and authority. Cowher would have all of the leverage, if he talked to Jerry about the job. Plus, Jerry stepped aside and let Parcells run the show for essentially four years - and it netted him the same amount of playoff victories as being heavily involved with the Chan Gailey and Dave Campo regimes - none. I don't know that he's inclined to give up that power again.

"New guy" trying to impress us. Also, seems to be using spellcheck.

**** Dallas.

Gruden is the most likely choice for next cowboy coach.

Bad day or something?

Cowboys won't hire Cowher because Cowher will take one look at that organization and tell JJ to stuff his job where the sun don't shine. The Giants? Not if they continue to win with Coughlin. But the mere mention of his name is going to be like blood in the water to the sharks (on these threads, that is).

Gruden will be in town for the Giants game next Monday.

Anyone want to bet he and Jerry won't have a "chat"?

October 21, 2010  07:46 AM ET

Yeah, the headline should read, "Why Cowher won't work for Jerry Jones."

Weirdest thing ever. I got to work and a new thread awaited me. Good spelling and the right picture. I must still be asleep.

Not sure anyone wants to coach the PlowBoys at this point....let's let them play for the #1 draft pick first.

Gruden goes to the Browns next year to be with his buddy Holmgren. Cowher to the Panthers.

That would be the better story. Not many people want to work for a control freak owner. For reference see the Raiders and Al Davis.

Yeah, yeah..we already know the standard rhetoric about Jerry and coaches. Thanks for regurgitating the same old b.s.

October 21, 2010  07:52 AM ET

Cowher might get a job next year.

Then again... he might not.

Such is the twisted web of life...

You could insert a few other coaches names in there. Until JJ understands that he needs to become a hands-off owner, he won't be able to attract legit HC candidates.

It does say a lot that Dan Snyder was able to snag Mike Shanahan. It seems Snyder finally saw the light...
