Mark Cuban has some advice for Cowboys owner Jerry Jones — keep coach Jason Garrett.
The Dallas Cowboys are holding on to the slimmest of hopes that quarterback Tony Romo’s season isn’t over due to what sources say a disc-related problem in his back that is related to last April’s surgery on the same area.
The AT&T Stadium locker room was a desolate place, occupied by too few words, too few explanations and the stench of a befuddling team that was stubbornly intent on throwing the ball even if it killed ‘em….and it did.
The cap-conscious Cowboys have exercised a way to reward a player while also saving money by arranging for cornerback Orlando Scandrick a contract extension that actually reduces his overall salary by 33 percent.
This will mark Lee’s third missed game of this season and the 16th of his possible 62 career games. Lee is well-aware of how his injury absences impact his team’s struggling defense.

Backup running back Lance Dunbar, who exploded onto the scene in the 31-24 Thanksgiving Day win over the Raiders, is now likely out for the season with a knee injury that will require surgery.
NBA executives ‘expect the Mavs to target Chris Bosh,’ according to an ESPN report on Wednesday that plants a sloppy seed that has grown into an illogical and errant tree of information.

The resistance to change is understandable. Garrett’s entire foundation – not just as a coach but as a person – is unflappability. And Jones’ stated position is sound as well.
The Cowboys recognize they have issues at safety and they are respectful of the Hall-of-Fame-level body of work of Ed Reed. But a team source tells me that Dallas has ‘no interest’ in pursuing the just-released Texas safety.
