Wade Phillips knows how to party

Courtesy of the Dallas Morning News, here’s a video that really needs no introduction.

We proudly present Wade Phillips doing the YMCA.

And since Florio likes a third line in these things, take special note of Phillips coaching the rest of the dancing crew up towards the end of the clip.

    Where is Jerry Jones telling Phillips what to do? I always assumed Phillips couldn’t eat cereal in the morning without Phillips allowing it.

    Wow! Very impressed with the guy-girl ratio at that shindig – even with all the “white-people-two-step” going on. Nicely done, Wade… nicely done!

  14. efangule says: Feb 12, 2010 3:42 PM

    take special note of Phillips coaching the rest of the dancing crew up towards the end of the clip.

    And also note that, just like the players on the team he “coaches”.. nobody listened.

    Wade is a veteran of the 70′s disco days. He knows that “the road into the pants” starts with the dance.

  20. cleanface says: Feb 12, 2010 3:49 PM

    To steal a line from the Sports Guy……Wade Phillips looks like a contestant on Family Feud.

    He was never that animated on the sideline. Good to see a pulse

    You’re right. Wade should be more like Andy Reid and spend his down-time bailing his crackhead kids out of jail.
    20-16 in Philly to take their pride
    24-0 to take the division
    34-14 to make them consider blowing up their entire QB situation

  31. CamelClutchBlog says: Feb 12, 2010 4:16 PM

    “And also note that, just like the players on the team he “coaches”.. nobody listened.”
    There has to be an element of truth to any good attempt at trolling. What you’re saying is that the Cowboys are so good, they’ve won the division two of the three years that Phillips has been coach because they didn’t listen to him? Eat more fish. They say it’s brain food.

    i hate the cowboys and I think he looks like a complete tool but in the internet age you can’t do anything at all without it ending up online somewhere.

  35. JimmySmith says: Feb 12, 2010 4:42 PM

    Don’t wait on Vox, he’s been doing the YMCA at all the gay disco’s for years, he’s likely to have a harsh opinion of a straight man’s attempt at it.

  36. Pootie Tang says: Feb 12, 2010 4:42 PM

    That’s just awful. My life sucks so bad that I cannot condone anyone having a good time. Philips should know better than to have a few drinks and jump in the middle of a titty convention. Eww, he probably got some leg after that, too.

  37. HAILSKINS says: Feb 12, 2010 4:42 PM

    Im not hating on him. He is cutting loose after a long season. I think its awesome.

  38. Adam-Chris Scheftersen says: Feb 12, 2010 4:46 PM

    At least his shirt was on.

    cue gay Wade Phillips jokes…
    Well, he should be off the hook for dancing to YMCA considering all the poon that’s around him
    But, he’s still gay and not in the homosexual gay way but in the “how in the hell is any cowboy player going to look at him the same way” gay

  40. Steeler4life says: Feb 12, 2010 4:48 PM

    Thomas Wade Landry is probably turning over in his grave.

    Now if you could find 70s footage of Landry doing this … that I’d really like to see.

    Since you own him can you send out for a mechanic to repair his mental deficiencies? Switzer? Was that a joke?

  54. .VoxVeritas says: Feb 12, 2010 6:11 PM

    Yeah I guess the Switzer thing was supposed to be a joke… hell some people (not me) would consider Barry Switzer a joke but fact is he’s got a Super Bowl ring as a head coach and there are a lot of guys that don’t.

  55. .VoxVeritas says: Feb 12, 2010 6:12 PM

    Dismissed.

  59. Deb says: Feb 12, 2010 7:45 PM

    @.VoxVeritas …
    That Super Bowl broke my heart. But I don’t give Switzer the credit for that, and I’m surprised you do. From what I’ve read, the team won in spite of him thanks to the discipline they developed while working with Johnson. Sounds as though Aikman practically coached the team that year because Switzer barely wanted to practice. Don’t get me wrong–Switzer was a great college coach. I just have trouble thinking of him as a good pro coach. He certainly wasn’t good enough to take credit for one of the all-time great teams.

  60. OscarMooseFarmer says: Feb 13, 2010 4:31 AM

    There are a lot of gay jokes in this thread but i have a new found security in my sexuality since i missed Wade while watching the lovely lady in strapless dress having to yank it up in between the letters.

  62. .VoxVeritas says: Feb 13, 2010 1:00 PM

    “Switzer was a great college coach. I just have trouble thinking of him as a good pro coach. He certainly wasn’t good enough to take credit for one of the all-time great teams.”
    Kinda silly to intimate that any team could win the championship without a real coach. Such a team would have to be considered the greatest team in NFL history.
    People like to give Barry Switzer 100% of the blame when things didn’t go well, but 0% of the credit when they went well. Can’t have both. Either he had an influence or he didn’t. Switzer enjoyed the support of just about every player EXCEPT Aikman, and they had a history. To tell you the truth I think he may STILL be pissed off at Switzer for making the decision to go in another direction after Aikman broke his ankle in the 1985 college season, and it’s possible that he was and possibly still is just a tad bitter that the Sooners won the National Championship with his freshman replacement as he watched from the sidelines. You know, Switzer’s style of coaching didn’t preclude Aikman from choosing to sign up with the Sooners when he could have played just about anywhere he wanted and I find it hard to believe that his style of coaching is what pissed Aikman off when they were both with the Cowboys. However, it’s not all about Aikman and it never has been. For whatever reason, Aikman didn’t respect Switzer and I fault nobody but Aikman for that. It’s widely known that Aikman often wouldn’t even acknowledge Switzer when they crossed paths away from practices and games. Petty. Switzer didn’t deserve Aikman’s love or friendship, but he damn sure deserved Aikman’s respect not only as the head coach but as a guy that gave him a scholarship to play college ball and for facilitating his transfer to another team that would give him an opportunity to start and play to his strengths as a passer. And I think that it’s indicative of Aikman’s actual level of influence (or lack thereof) on his teammates off the field. He hated Switzer and every one of his teammates knew it. Few of his teammates, if any, really cared how Aikman felt about him. Same way that Aikman didn’t care that many of his teammates didn’t like Jimmy Johnson. I will give Aikman props for not letting his personal feelings about Switzer affect him on the field and for not making a giant media mess about it.
    As a born-and-bred Texan, I am predisposed to hating everything from Arkansas and Oklahoma, but I won’t hate on Switzer’s tenure as Cowboys head coach. The man was a household name, a retired multi-millionaire, one of the most successful coaches in NCAA history living a life of leisure and luxury when Jerry Jones came calling and he didn’t need to come out of that just to be somebody’s puppet. I make my judgments about Switzer based on statements from everyone that was on the team, not just Aikman. Certainly not from who I see doing the most yelling on Sunday. There’s more to being a leader and a coach than that.

  63. Deb says: Feb 13, 2010 1:27 PM

    @Vox …
    I think you know I wouldn’t make judgments based on who does the most yelling on Sunday. If we’re talking personalities, I can’t stand either Johnson or Switzer–and that dislike predates either of them coaching the Cowboys. But if I had to spend half an hour stuck in an airport lounge with one of them, I’d rather be with Barry … as long as he wasn’t armed ;-)
    Truthfully, I wasn’t aware of Aikman’s history with Switzer, which would color his perception of what Barry brought to the table. But much as I dislike Johnson, he did build one of the best football teams in modern memory. I have trouble separating him from that squad and keep having to remind myself that he didn’t win three Super Bowls. I remember reading all these stories about Switzer’s lack of discipline and haphazard coaching style. Obviously I didn’t follow the internal happenings to the degree you did, so I’m prepared to admit I may be wrong. Many people want to credit Cowher for last year’s Super Bowl, but I know how much influence Tomlin had. Maybe I’ve always sold Barry short.
    Time will tell how Tomlin’s legacy will compare to Cowher’s. But do you honestly believe Switzer brought as much to the Cowboys organization as Johnson did?

  64. .VoxVeritas says: Feb 13, 2010 4:07 PM

    “Time will tell how Tomlin’s legacy will compare to Cowher’s. But do you honestly believe Switzer brought as much to the Cowboys organization as Johnson did?”
    I can’t answer that with a simple yes or no. Jimmy Johnson is not an X’s and O’s guy and never has been. He was a delegator. He let his coaches coach. His main value as a head coach is how he motivates players. And I don’t mean to downplay the effect that has, even on fully-grown millionaires. He also brought a lot of value to the Cowboys because he was fresh out of the college ranks and had pretty intimate first-hand knowledge of college players and this helped in the draft, no doubt. On the downside, his style was prone to not only burning himself out, it was prone to burning players out.
    Sort of reminds me of the old Tom Coughlin in that respect. “If you’re not 5 minutes early to a meeting, you’re late” and all that.
    I never followed Barry Switzer’s Sooner career very closely, but as I said, born and bred in Texas, being sworn to hate all things Arkansas and Oklahoma, surely predisposed to hate an Arkansan coaching an Oklahoma team that probably consisted of more kids from Texas than anywhere else, I really didn’t need a reason to hate or completely disregard anything he did. Particularly since I’m not a big fan of college football outside of my Texas A&I Javelinas, and they never played the Sooners. Anyway I don’t think I have a firm grasp on his coaching style i.e. X’s and O’s as opposed to motivational, etc. Didn’t follow the Sooners, and I think he was put in a bad situation when he signed on with the Cowboys. Great prior success caused unrealistic expectations, multiplied by 10 just by the sheer visibility of the Cowboys.
    I think they were flirting with burnout, possibly outright mutiny as long as Johnson kept hammering on them. More than a few players were glad that Johnson was gone and I think it allowed a few guys to step up and fill leadership roles that just could not exist while Johnson was there. Unfortunately I think that Switzer was also hamstrung to a degree by Jerry Jones. He was brought in to be somewhat of an overseer of a back-to-back Super Bowl winner but I think the players responded to him so I think that shows some motivational strength. Even the failed back to back 4th and 1′s against Philly was cited by many players as a turning point in the 1995 season because it showed that Switzer had so much faith in the team. Even Emmitt said “We’re don’t have the Jimmy Johnson swagger anymore. Now we’re the bootlegger’s boys”, and he meant it as a positive. Even Michael Irvin, who I detest as a person but respect as a player, will defend each coach with equal vigor and if you stuck around long enough after Super Bowl 30, the first thing you heard him say when he got to the podium was “He took all that ish, GIVE THE MAN HIS DUE!” complete with the profanity on live TV.
    I just can’t answer your question. Both guys brought some different things to the Cowboys, it’s my opinion that each brought what was needed when it was needed. Not sure how much input Switzer had on the draft but I think that Johnson’s fantastic input in that regard was more a product of circumstance than anything else. Years removed from the college ranks, I didn’t see anything special about his drafts in Miami. I guess a lot of people would say that Barry Switzer brought upon the downfall of the 90′s Cowboys but I don’t see it that way. Free agency absolutely killed them. That’s something that Johnson really didn’t have to deal with. Free agency as we know it now began in 1993, and Johnson quit/was fired after the 1993 season. And of course in 1994 we got the salary cap. The players weren’t making a lot of money at that time and there was no cap crunch but I think that Jones made a few missteps in preparing for and dealing with the salary cap, i.e. letting players go that he could have kept with some creative accounting, lessons that he eventually learned from the 49ers’ model regarding signing bonuses. They absolutely bled player and coaching talent during Switzer’s tenure.

  65. Deb says: Feb 13, 2010 6:20 PM

    Reading your comments makes me realize I should rethink my attitude on Switzer. I’ve grown in my understanding of the game since then, but we tend to hold onto our old ideas even if they aren’t altogether accurate. The only player opinions I remember hearing at the time were Aikman’s–and he thrived on Johnson’s discipline. But as soon as you mentioned Coughlin, I could see how the other players would quickly burn out on that hardnosed approach and welcome someone with Switzer’s more relaxed style. Now that the Steelers are in a similar situation, I get frustrated when people dismiss Tomlin the way they dismissed Switzer. I love Cowher; he was a great coach. But he made mistakes, and Tomlin has some strengths Bill lacked.
    As for the 90s Cowboys falling apart, that was inevitable and would have happened even if Johnson had stayed. All the great dynasties run their course eventually. The Pats may continue to have success but they won’t be the powerhouse they were. Maybe they’ll become a new powerhouse with some of the old players, but the special chemistry that makes a Team of the Decade only lasts a short time in the best circumstances. And trying to navigate the early days of free agency wasn’t the best circumstance.
