    IRVING, Texas -- Jason Garrett isn't just keeping the seat warm for one of those Super Bowl winners Jerry Jones claims have called about becoming the Dallas Cowboys' next head coach.

    In fact, the odds are that Garrett's lectern will remain in the Valley Ranch atrium for a long time.

    Garrett isn't treating these eight games as an extended job interview. He's simply operating as he sees fit after taking over the NFL's biggest 2010 failure, laying the foundation for the Cowboys to live up to their potential at some point in the near future.
