    Mediocrity is not something that sits well with Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones, and in recent years, he’s seen plenty of it from his team on the field. In fact since the Cowboys last Super Bowl win in 1995, Dallas has posted a tepid 141-140 overall record. Dallas finished the 2012 season at 8-8, while a .500 record would have been welcome in say, Jacksonville this season, another average finish is not sitting well with Jones. He took to the airwaves on Wednesday and said that changes are definitely coming for the Cowboys this offseason. After publicly issuing his support of head coach Jason Garrett, you have to wonder if perhaps Jones hasn’t been talking to former head coach Jon Gruden behind the scenes.

    Gruden was rumored to be assembling a coaching staff behind the scenes for the last several weeks. On Black Monday, it was reported by CBS Sports that the former Tampa Bay Buccaneers head coach was open to interviewing with NFL teams and had been quietly contacted by clubs in recent weeks. With seven coaching vacancies open and the interviewing process in full swing, Gruden has not been linked to any interviews with any franchises looking for a coach. Why?

    Except when the alternative is to hire another GM.

    Too late. The rules for soul selling strictly forbid attempting to sell a soul more than one time.

    Me too.

    This guy won a SB with Dungy's team and then proceeded to dismantle the Tampa Bay Bucs.

    No to Chucky.

    Not surprising all these rumors coming out about us looking for a head coach. Sean Payton and Jon gruden were the only two coaches I'd like if Garrett was fired. Lets see if this article has some truth to it....

    I disagree, I like Gruden. I hope this happens. He worked in similar a similar situation in oakland, went to the conf title game and lost. then won a ring with brad johnson as QB (TB), so I think he can make it work.

    Same.. Not that I like Garrett. I just don't want to be stuck with someone else I'm not to much of a fan of from an X's and O's standpoint.

    I may be in the minority but what did Gruden really ever do after winning a Super Bowl in Tampa with Dungy's team? Tampa was irrelevant seemingly every season after that.

    I don't get all excited over Gruden coming here. Sure he's a different attitude and approach to the game than Garrett but will the results be there?
