Cowboys coach Jason Garrett acknowledged Monday that he is aware of speculation about Sean Payton being a possible candidate to take his job if Payton becomes a free agent after this season.
But it is not something Garrett will be dwelling on as the Cowboys (3-5) seek to end a two-game losing streak Sunday at Philadelphia.
Certainly, some people bring those kinds of things to my attention, Garrett said. But were just focused on what we need to do today. We need to clean up what happened in the game (a 19-13 loss to Atlanta) and
get ready for the Eagles. Thats what our focus is. Were focused on being our best, day-to-day and week-to-week.
Garrett, now 16-16 in his tenure as the Cowboys coach, said he takes full responsibility for both the teams 3-5 start this season and its recurring offensive struggles. Dallas has managed touchdowns on just 11 of 25 red-zone possessions this season and has a turnover margin of minus-11, next-to-last among NFL teams. Source: Star Telegram Attached Thumbnails
