It's been tossed out there that when the Dallas Cowboys play the Philadelphia Eagles this weekend, both Andy Reid and Jason Garrett will be coaching for their future(s). But while Jeffrey Lurie won't address Reid's status (or anything else, for that matter), Cowboys executive vice president Stephen Jones isn't shying away from discussing Garrett's status.
Well, more precisely, he said he wouldn't "even comment on that," per David Moore of the Dallas Morning News, but followed that up my stating that such a notion is "ridiculous."
So that's an implied "no," I guess. But a lot can change. Regardless, I get the feeling Reid has more of a reason to be desperate than Garrett on Sunday, and for the remainder of the year.
