The Dallas Cowboys can finally talk about the NFC East race, now that they are back in it.
A week ago, the Cowboys lost to Atlanta and speculation centered on whether Sean Payton might replace coach Jason Garrett. On Sunday, there was a report that Mike Holmgren might be interested if Garrett was out.
Garrett spent all week deflecting the Payton questions, and owner Jerry Jones did more of the same with Holmgren on Sunday, the same day Dallas got a division win in Philadelphia. Holmgren said Monday he isn't interested as the Cowboys started to prepare for this weekend's game against Cleveland.

The Dallas Cowboys are back in the playoff race even though they've had little to do with it. They were able to scratch out two wins during a five-game stretch that saw them play four of five games on the road.
It's not like they deserve to be in the thick of things with a 4-5 record, but that's exactly where they are thanks to the New York Giants losing two consecutive...
Says Deadspin’s Barry Petchetsky on Holmgren, the recent Cowboys rumor and Bob LaMonte’s black magic on behalf of clients Holmgren and Andy Reid:
“If one of your clients wants plausible deniability, don’t plant two identical rumors about multiple clients with the same reporter at the same time.”
Read the whole thing and heaven forbid as always that anyone at the Plain Dealer...
Leave it to ‘the Walrus’ to backpedal. Mike Holmgren denied today that he was interested in coaching the Dallas Cowboys.

Holmgren insists that he is still committed to the Cleveland...
IRVING, Texas Jason Garrett spent a few minutes discussing one of Tony Romo's best plays of the season after Sunday's 38-23 victory in Philadelphia.
Following his Monday press conference, the Cowboys coach went into greater detail for about 10 minutes, talking about Romo's ability to extend plays.
With the Cowboys down 17-10 in the third quarter, Romo bounced around...
BEREA, Ohio (AP) -- Browns president Mike Holmgren is on his way out. He just hasn't decided where he's going or what he wants to do.

PHILADELPHIA - Is it detail-acknowledging genius or some anal-retentive poppycock? Cowboys coach Jason Garrett has developed a theory that might come into play to start the first and second halves at Philly today. We'll call it The 'Halftime Hotdog Hypothesis':
Everything finally came together for the Cowboys Sunday in Philadelphia. Dallas scored touchdowns on offense, defense and special teams en route to a 38-23 victory over the Eagles.
Here are my thoughts on the Cowboys' fourth win of the season.
1.) Jason Garrett finally got the complete game effort he was seeking. The offense, defense and special teams weren't flawless by...
Outgoing Browns President Mike Holmgren still hasn't decided if
he wants to coach again.
(Eds: Updates.) By SCHUYLER DIXON AP Sports Writer Somewhere in the middle of six defensive penalties that gave Philadelphia first downs, Dallas Cowboys coach Jason Garrett turned to backup quarterback Kyle Orton to talk a little game simulation.
''I want to hear 800 hard counts in practice this week,'' Garrett recalled himself saying while watching jumpy Dallas...
Jason La Canfora of CBS Sports reported on Sunday that Mike Holmgren would be interested in taking over as the Cowboys head coach, should the job become available.
Holmgren reportedly likes their roster and the fact that he does have ties to owner Jerry Jones suggests that it’s at least a remote possibility.
“Of course, Mike Holmgren is a heck of a coach,” said Jerry Jones...
The Cowboys accomplished plenty of rare things on Sunday. One that jumps off the page is the fact that they scored a special teams TD, an interception TD, and a fumble TD all in the same quarter. According to Elias, that is the first time since San Francisco did it in 1966, so any stat that gives you over 40 years to consider you can understand how rare a feat it was.
Everybody hates Mondays, hopefully these links and images brighten up your day.
