Dallas Cowboys coach Jason Garrett is keeping his focus on the next game, the way he always does.
As for any questions about his future, or the possibility of being replaced by Sean Payton, Garrett said his focus Monday was on cleaning up mistakes from Sunday night's loss at Atlanta and starting to prepare to play at Philadelphia.
Cowboys owner Jerry Jones said he has ''a lot of faith'' in Garrett and dismissed reports he might be interested in bringing in Payton next season.
Garrett says there's always an urgency in staying the course, whether the Cowboys (3-5) are coming off another close loss or things are going well.
Hired midway through the 2010 season, Garrett is 16-16 in Dallas.

Whenever you study something long enough, you begin to see the trends and patterns and normal fluctuations that make them normal. They have happened before, they will happen again, and we should not all lose our minds when we see it because it is not that abnormal.
However, there are other times, when sample sizes are big enough to really be a cause for concern. Every Tuesday,...

It’s been almost 18 years since the Cowboys won a Super Bowl. Yes those were the days back when Cowboys’ fans actually had something to brag about. That’s almost two decades and the playoffs are almost as scarce. Living on the edge, that’s what it’s like to be a true Dallas Cowboys’ fan, especially over the last...
Well, we’re officially halfway through the 2012 season and we’re sitting two below .500 at 3-5. What’s next for this team is anyone’s guess, what I do know is that Jason Garrett should either relinquish his play calling duties or they should be stripped in favor of Bill Callahan. For the remainder of the season, we should roll with Callahan and see where he can take us. There...
After last night’s prime time loss – in which many folks are choosing to focus on whether or not Atlanta did enough to wow us, rather than on how Dallas failed to take advantage of an Atlanta squad that they held out of the ‘wow zone’ – those who are fans of the Cowboys are questioning their team, their quarterback, their owner and their coach.
Nothing new there… but...
The day started off poorly for Cowboys coach Jason Garrett and ended even worse.
Garrett was greeted with the news Sunday morning that the contract extension signed by New Orleans Saints coach Sean Payton was voided by the NFL. That means Payton can sign with any team after the season.
Payton is a former Cowboys assistant. Payton and his family still live in the Dallas area. Payton...

When the schedule came out for the 2012 season, most (including me) looked at December, because that’s when the Dallas Cowboys usually implode.
Then we looked at the middle of the schedule—three straight...
Sean Payton could haunt Jason Garrett in Dallas.
There is no other way to lead a recap of Sunday’s games than with a discussion of Doug Martin’s effort. I spent the week talking about how the loss of the best guard in football may have an impact on this line (lets give Tampa’s o-line some credit, too) and the run game. Martin and his teammates proved me wrong on game day. Oakland fought valiantly to stay in this game, but...
The best thing that could happen to Jason Garrett would be for his kicker and punter to resign mid-game. There's no doubt Dan Bailey and Brian Moorman already feel bad for enabling that kind of cowardice.
It would be nice if Doug Martin (four catches, 21 yards) were more involved in the passing game.
The Colts had four receivers with 75 or more yards.
