Jerry Jones praises Mike Holmgren, maintains support for Jason Garrett

Gregory Shamus

The Cowboys owner says Holmgren is "everything that you would want as far as a coach is concerned," but he's still all about Jason Garrett.

Dallas Cowboys' owner Jerry Jones talked about Cleveland Browns' president Mike Holmgren for the second time this week, in the wake of a report by Jason La Canfora of CBS Sports that the former Packers and Seahawks' coach would like to coach the Cowboys, if the opportunity becomes available. Jones just thinks that Holmgren is pretty great and that's all there is to the rumors, or so he said Tuesday morning on his radio show:

"Mike Holmgren is someone that I can't tell you on an individual basis how much I respect him. He's everything that you would want as far as a coach is concerned. It was a compliment, when he was talking about how he was impressed with our talent and the fact that we could work together, and that's just the case."

Jones continued to say that "our fans probably need to hear that (Holmgren)'s a great guy, but bottom line it's all about Jason (Garrett) with me." Jones said earlier in the week that "Jason Garrett gives us an outstanding chance to be what we want to be."

For his part, Holmgren said Monday he hasn't the foggiest idea how any of this talk began, though he does plan on saying hello to Jones when 2-7 Cleveland visits 4-5 Dallas this Sunday.
