According to Rapoport, the Giants are a "really legitimate potential landing spot" for Garrett if he winds up being fired by the Cowboys.

Dallas has not officially announced the firing of current coach Jason Garrett, despite media reports stating that Garrett will not return to the team next season.

When owner Jerry Jones said he was ready to make a change, just not prepared to discuss it in the immediate aftermath of the Dallas Cowboys' regular season finale, he wasn't kidding.

They recently began that process by interviewing long-time National Football League coaching candidates Mike McCarthy and Marvin Lewis.

A first-time head coach on any level, Garrett would end his first three seasons with three straight 8-8 records without a playoff berth. The Cowboys were able to blow out the lowly Washington Redskins on Sunday to the tune of 47-16. In his nine full years as a head coach, he guided our team to three division championships while also having them in position to play for the NFC East title in the last game of the year in four other seasons.

"The problem is, you don't know who can guarantee you a Super Bowl".

Former Green Bay head coach Mike McCarthy and ex-Cincinnati Bengals head coach Marvin Lewis are among those reportedly under consideration. Garrett took over when Wade Phillips was sacked halfway through the 2010 season. Winning the division and making the playoffs wasn't going to be enough. Fittingly enough, the announcement came during the time slot when the Cowboys would have been playing had they made it into the postseason. This season marked the fourth time Dallas has gone 8-8 under Garrett.
