Cowboys coach Barry Switzer, asked by ABC's Brent Musberger on his relationship with owner Jerry Jones: "I am sure we will have our ups and downs. I have no problem with Jerry in certain areas. If he wants to be involved with certain things in football, that is fine. But everything that happens on the field, between those two lines, that is me and the coaching staff and the players" ("Monday Night Football," ABC, 9/12). Meanwhile, this morning's PHILADELPHIA INQUIRER reports that Eagles owner Jeffrey Lurie and Jimmy Johnson dined together on Cape Cod last weekend (S.A. Paolontonio, PHILA. INQUIRER, 9/13).
