    Jones is interviewing Jason Garrett for the OC gig. So any HC won't be able to bring in his own people for the coordinator positions. Yep, sounds like Jones is looking for a puppet this time.

    Larry Brown.

    Either one -- the NBA's coaching nomad or lucky bastard Super Bowl XXX MVP -- will suffice.

    No surprise there. I suppose after having to share some power for four years, Jones was eager to recoup some of it.

    I just want this search to be over already.

    I'd be stunned if the Miles talk is anything more than the usual speculation. His stint with Dallas and the back-to-back 11-2 seasons he's had at LSU put him on the kinds of lists we like to throw out there at times like this, but I don't see it going anywhere.

    Oh no, I want it to drag out for weeks and weeks. I want coaches to turn Jones down left and right. I want him to have to hire his 10th choice for the job. I want Cowboys fans to suffer.

    And to think, I didn't mind Steelers fans for the most part. Thanks for changing my mind. :D

    Nothing personal, TD. Several of my friends and family are Cowboys fans. An uncle has season tickets at Texas Stadium and hangs out with Jim Myers, a longtime Dallas assistant coach (1962-86) under Landry.

    But the smugness of some Cowboys fans grates on me when I'm visiting the Metroplex. I know all teams have those fans, but it seems like Dallas has more per capita.

    I'm with you Inky.

    I was born in Dallas, spent went to grade school and junior high in Houston and worked at three small Texas papers.

    I've always thought that most football fans in other major U.S. cities were football fans first, and fans of their team second. Or very close, if the other way around.

    Half the Dallas fans I know are fanboys pure and simple. Simpletons, too. Fuck 'em. And the burro upon which they rode.

    Inky, was just having a bit of fun. To be honest, I tend to think of most Steelers fans the same way. I think we've had this conversation on another thread too.

    I'm all for saying my team screwed the pooch, and I can get over it fairly quickly now (not so much back in the day). But, I don't consider myself a "fanboy." I know the history of my team, the tradition and I love the team for it, no matter who's on it.

    But I do know what you mean about "those kind of fans." I usually detest them because all they know is the present and not the past. Or they tend to live in the past and ignore the present.
