Cowboys' fish story: Ones who got away

By Dan Graziano

Want to know who could've been the Cowboys' coach? It'd make you settle for Jimmy's predecessor at 'The U' to be his sixth successor at Jerry's Tower of Babel.
As some of you know, I now write a weekly column called Obstructed View that is exclusive to This column has been universally embraced and celebrated by the sports fans of Dallas-Fort Worth and surrounding counties.

In this week's Obstructed View, I took a look at the head-coaching candidates that Cowboys owner Jerry Jones let get away three years ago. Three of those former candidates -- Tony Sparano, Norv Turner and Jim Caldwell -- have combined to go 19-0 in the month of December. But then, who's really counting?

The stunning visual complement to this column was brought to you by's Scott Noll, a man who truly appreciates the work of Howard Schnellenberger. Thanks for making us a part of your afternoon.
