DALLAS (105.3 The Fan) - Before the Dallas Cowboys went out and blew the doors off of the Philadelphia Eagles on Sunday Night Football, Jason Garrett's seat was heating up. The team was in the midst of a three-game losing streak after starting the season off with three wins over bad teams, and fans and the media were once again calling for Garrett's head. 

Since the win Sunday, cooler heads have prevailed (sort of), and the team heads into the bye with a winning record of 4-3 and the division lead. 

But before the game even took place, Urban Meyer was asked about the Cowboys and made it clear that he'd have an interest in Garrett's job. 

"That’s New York Yankees, that’s the Dallas Cowboys,” Meyer said on Collin Cowherd's radio show when asked if his protege and Oklahoma coach Lincoln Riley would or should want the job. “That’s the one. Great city. They got Dak Prescott, Zeke Elliott. You got a loaded team. And I can’t speak for him obviously, I hate to even speculate because I don’t know him, that’s really not fair, but to me, that’s the one job in professional football that you say, ‘I got to go do that.'”

And what about his interest in the job?

“Sure,” Meyer said. “Absolutely. Absolutely. That one? Yes.”

Cowboys owner Jerry Jones had a chance to respond to Meyer's comments today on 105.3 The Fan. 

"For Urban Meyer to say that is a compliment, period," Jones told Shan and RJ. 

"I really know that. The job is a great job. Now, that's not implying that I made it that way or I don't make it that way. It's just a place to be. The other night, as an example, we broke all records, appearances before 20 million people. 

"Make no mistake about it, if you are bent that way or you have an inclination as a person, you've got to go to center stage. If you like to have to answer or have an opportunity to be at the very top, then our organization gives you that opportunity. We're all aware of that. We want to really, once you're there, you -- that's inspirational. It doesn't surprise me that Urban would have that kind of opinion of the head coaching job of the Dallas Cowboys."
