Cleveland did everything to give Sunday’s loss to the Dallas Cowboys, but Jerry Jones didn’t give away any info at all regarding the growing Mike Holmgren speculation. However, with Holmgren in Dallas to watch his Browns take on America’s team, the two spent time as they always do when their worlds cross. Jason Garrett may have bought himself a little more time in the victory, but the ever growing shadow of Holmgren is looming. Jones needs a legitimate Super Bowl contender, or a marquee coach to fill the seats in his billion dollar stadium. Either way, it makes for good sports drama at its finest -  a coach sweating for his job, an aggressive owner who doesn’t mind making waves, and an all time great coach itching to get back in the game. It doesn’t get better than that. Jones had this to say about the time spent with Holmgren yesterday. “Well, we had the visit that we always have when he comes, when I come to where he is. We’re good friends", Jones said, via the Dallas Morning News. "We served for about seven or eight years on the Competition Committee together,” “We visited about all the things that we normal visit about. He’s a really, apart from being an outstanding coach, he’s a heck of a man. He’s got a lot of character and I can’t tell you how much I respect him. When you’re close like that and spend a lot of time with somebody, familiarity can breed contempt. It’s just the opposite with him. Every time I’ve been around him he’s gone up.” var switchTo5x=true; stLight.options({publisher:''});

Winning in spite of clear shortcomings

In an effort to take my own advice, I would like to remind any and all that the ugliest win in the world is better than the prettiest defeat. Also, that wins are very difficult to find in this league, so the last thing you want to do is to get picky about how aesthetically pleasing to the eye a victory might be. But, wow. Nothing comes easy for your 2012 Dallas Cowboys. And they...

Josh Cribbs gets tackled by his hair

Some guys just can’t live without their long hair. I’ve never understood why wide receivers or running backs would want to have long hair, but maybe I just don’t appreciate a good set of dread locks the way I should. During the Dallas Cowboys’ overtime win over the Cleveland Browns on Sunday, Josh Cribbs was dragged down by his dreadlocks on what looked like a painful tackle...
