Jerry Jones Locked Out of Locker Room, Pounds on the Door in Anger. Fire up the Sean Payton Rumors

Jerry Jones, the GM/owner of the struggling Dallas Cowboys, will pick up the phone this morning and ring his pal Sean Payton, the unemployed free agent former coach of the Saints.

The Payton-Jones-Cowboys whispers have been out there since February 2011. Payton has a house in Dallas (he was commuting to the Saints last season). His kids are in Dallas. He’s long-time friends with Jerry Jones.

Dallas is 3-5, and would probably need to go at least 6-2 the rest of the way to get into playoff contention … and save Jason Garrett’s job. The remaining schedule for the Cowboys:

at Philadelphia (the coaches getting fired bowl!)
vs. Cleveland
vs. Washington
vs. Philadelphia
at Cincinnati
vs. Pittsburgh
vs. New Orleans (the irony!)
at Washington

On the bright side, Tony Romo is 19-3 in his career in November! And only one of those teams (Pittsburgh) currently has a winning record. So it can be done.
