Cowboys Garrett gets vote of confidence

The SportsXchange

Jason Garrett is apparently not coaching for his job Sunday when the Dallas Cowboys host the Philadelphia Eagles for the NFC East championship and a spot in the 2013 playoffs.

Garrett, owner Jerry Jones said on his weekly radio show, is the right man for the job.

"His future is bright through my eyes with the Dallas Cowboys," Jones said on 105.3 FM.

Garrett needs a victory to avoid a third straight 8-8 season.

The team last appeared in the postseason in 2009, beating the Eagles in the wild-card round before a 34-3 whitewash against Brett Favre and Minnesota Vikings.

Last season, the Cowboys lost their final two games to cough up the division and a postseason spot. Dallas is 1-4 in their past five December games.

Quarterback Tony Romo is undergoing treatment for a back injury and reportedly is dealing with a herniated disc. Jones repeated what he said late Monday, telling the radio station Romo's high pain tolerance makes him a candidate to play if the medical staff gives clearance.
