Found November 11, 2012 on Waiting For Next Year:
Really really bad news for Jason Garrett you’d think, but Jason LaCanfora is reporting that Holmgren could be a fit in Dallas. Holmgren, who is finishing up a disappointing three-year run as the Browns’ team president, has said he would consider a return to coaching, where he already has a case for potential Hall of Fame induction. Some sources who know Holmgren well believe Dallas is the one potential opening that would truly interest him, given the competitiveness of the roster, the skill players present and his long relationship with Cowboys owner Jerry Jones. Holmgren and Jones worked closely together for more than a decade on the NFL’s Competition Committee. If the perfect scenario does not arise, sources close to Holmgren expect him to retire. It would be a polar opposite scenario to what Holmgren entertained in Cleveland. In Dallas there is a (ahem) very strong owner, a roster with some semblance of talent, and potentially a head coaching vacancy. [Related:No more moral victories, Browns need results]

Jason Garrett: Innovative or obsessive?

Still searching for the right answers

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.
