I am not much of a Dallas Cowboy fan, but this season who is, right?
With Sunday nights blowout 45-7 loss to the Green Bay Packers, Wade Phillips is undoubtedly on the hot seat and a move may be made as early as today.
Cowboys’ owner Jerry Jones has said last week that Phillips will remain in place through the end of the season, but at this point something has got to give in Dallas.
If Pat Bowlen hasn’t burned the bridge, Denver needs Phillips back on the Broncos coaching staff. Not as a replacement to Josh McDaniels, but as his defensive coordinator.
It’s not insane and I’d hate to see Wink Martindale lose his job, but if Phillips is a free agent I implore Mr. Bowlen, bring in Phillips as quickly as possible and give him a salary.
Though the team’s defense may not turn around this season, it will over the off-season and nearly every defense that Phillips touches turns to gold.
He’s just not a head coach.
UPDATE: Phillips has been fired by the Cowboys.
