The Dallas Cowboys started off the season with three-straight wins where the team looked like a dominant presence in the NFC. Analysts and fans alike crowned the Cowboys as the class of the NFC and made the ma Super Bowl favorite.

However, the wheels have fallen off in recent weeks. The Cowboys are 3-5 in their last eight games and are now fighting for a spot in the playoffs.

With their recent struggles in mind, head coach Jason Garrett's future has come into question.

According to a recent report from Mike Freeman of Bleacher Report, Jerry Jones already has two head coaching candidates in mind.

If Dallas fails to win a Super Bowl, Jones will reportedly turn to New England Patriots offensive coordinator Josh McDaniels or former Ohio State head coach Urban Meyer.

Second, there is increasing belief around the league that owner Jerry Jones is focusing on two primary candidates as replacements—former Ohio State head coach Urban Meyer and Patriots offensive coordinator Josh McDaniels.

McDaniels signed on as the head coach of the Indianapolis Colts before backing out of the deal. However, an opportunity to coach the Cowboys could be too rich for the longtime Patriots assistant to pass up.

Meanwhile, Meyer has never coached at the NFL level, but now could be the perfect time.
