07:11 AM ET 12.04 | Will Jason Garrett be the coach of the Cowboys next year in your opinion or will the chance to get a Sean Payton or Andy Reid be too much for Jerry Jones to pass up on? I think this three-game homestand has Jerry scratching his head. I think Jerry anticipated the Cowboys winning three consecutive games against inferior teams and storming back into the playoff picture. But the Browns pushed the Cowboys to overtime, the Redskins embarrassed them in front of 90,000 and a national television audience on Thanksgiving and Philadelphia's B team pushed the Cowboys down to the final minute for an onside kick. If Jerry wasn't thinking about a coaching change three weeks ago, I bet he is now.

Needs a GM change - time for Jerry to realize he doesn't know everything.

They are one game out of first in the NFC East. Next year, maybe, but this isn't the time to upset the apple cart.

Hmmmm...Washington upset a certain "Apple" cart last night, didn't they?

If they start Jerry thinking he might hurt himself.

After the season that 'apple cart' needs to be blown up and bring in a better HC. It's not like they aren't out there.

But the best HCs want control, and Jerry wants to oversee everything.

The fundamental problem in Dallas since the start of the JJ Era.

Start of the era of JJ = the decline of the cowboys

Its time for a change at GM and HC, unfortunately for the Cowboys a certain GM will certainly find it hard to fire himselff and correct matters he created himself.

Now I know all you people all of a sudden are going to be ranting about playoffs for Washington or maybe even Dallas after the Blue lost last night. I really could cry over spilled milk but I won't, I'll just **** up the Giants way and move on. There will be no Skins or Boys in the playoffs, trust, so go on and rant about what a team the Skins are.......got one thing to say...not this year, bank on it.. Apple!

What I don't get is Dallas generally has pretty good talent. At least at the skill positions. I wonder if the problem is their coach has pimple balls and is so worried about getting fired he won't make the decisions he should. He's gonna get fired anyway, might as well go out swinging.

I'm thinking Jerry will hire a low-key guy. Ken Wisenhunt from the Cardinals might be available after this season. I'm not sure if he's enough of a butt kisser for Jerry, though.

Surprised Garrett ain't fired today, seasons end...

Giants play Saints, Falcons, Ravens and Eagles.

Dallas plays Bengals, Steelers, Saints, Redskins.

Redskins play Ravens, Browns, Eagles, Cowboys.

If the Giants go 2-2, the Cowboys go 1-3 and the Redskins go 3-1, all reasonable predictions, the Skins win the NFC East on the basis of their division record.

It would take a lot of strange goings-on, but the Cowboys are only 1 game out of first in the NFC East and a game behind Seattle for the second wild card slot. As much as they have sucked at times, the Boys are not out of it.
