It's getting harder and harder to keep Wade Phillips

Really, Jerry Jones would be doing Wade Phillips a favor.

It’s hard enough to watch these games.  Coaching this dreadful Cowboys squad for the rest of the season would hurt Phillips a lot more than getting fired.

Jones said earlier this week that Phillips would remain as coach the rest of the season.  But we pointed out then extenuating circumstances have to apply.  There can only be so many brutal blowout losses in a row before Jones buckles and makes a change.

Sunday night’s 45-7 loss to the Packers may be the nail in Phillips’ coffin.  FOX’s Jay Glazer wrote on his Twitter Sunday evening that he thought a move would happen and that Jones considered making a change last week.

We don’t think a coaching move will do any good. We also doubt the next Cowboys fulltime coach currently works for the organization.  But it’s time.

Phillips may even be grateful for getting canned when he’s sitting on his couch on Thanksgiving watching the Cowboys like the rest of us.  At least then he could change the channel.

UPDATE: Jones after the game, via ESPN’s Chris Mortensen: “Aot of people here will suffer consequences . . . players,
coaches. . . . I’ve got lot of work to do, a lot of decisions to make.”

    it will do good …….it will show these “so called great ” players that this is serious …..if the coach gets the ax ….I can too ……

    Don’t worry Cowboys fans, it was Packers “Superbowl”, right?
    Isn’t that what you guys say when a team beats you?
    Because the Failboys are the golden standard that all teams want to aspire to, right?
    Teams get “up” and play harder when they play the Failboys, right?
    This whole downward spiral happened when the the Redskins stomped a mud-hole in their backsides in week one. I still remember how scared the delicate Failboys looked in that game.

  3. HolyMoly says: Nov 7, 2010 11:51 PM

    I’ve never seen so many players just give up in the middle of a game like that. It was really dreadful. At several points during the game I was actually laughing out loud. It was like watching one of those ridiculous college games where one team is just totally overmatched (see: Oregon defeats Washington 53-16).

  4. scizo says: Nov 7, 2010 11:52 PM

    Bye Wade….and don’t forget to take these guys too…Garrett, Brooking, Jenkins and Newman.

  5. armchair_probowler says: Nov 7, 2010 11:52 PM

    Wade should have put in the cheerleaders for the 2nd half.
    Time to get healthy for the Packers…. starting to look like this team has the chance to be a force down the stretch

  6. Rashard Mendenballs says: Nov 7, 2010 11:53 PM

    I think the bigger question is….Are the cowboys the worst team in the NFL?
    I personally believe the Bills can beat the Cowboys at Jerry’s World.

  8. pga5 says: Nov 7, 2010 11:54 PM

    Harder and harder to keep Wade Phillips? If I were Phillips, I’d have put serious thought into quitting. It’s evident his players have already done so. Their line play is an abomination, and with the lack of a pass rush, Mike Jenkins is getting exposed.
    The fact that Jones would also be firing his defensive coordinator isn’t as big an issue…the Cowboys aren’t exactly stopping other teams cold, are they?
    Following up with the gratuitous cheap shot–How’s being the home team for the Super Bowl working out these days?

  9. Neverend says: Nov 7, 2010 11:56 PM

    Please, florio. Don’t sell, and others, “the cowboys have the talent to become one of the best teams in the nfl. it’s poor coaching that has led to their demise” agenda. they have no talent, barely! only at the receiver positions but thats enough for people to classify them as great team before the season.
    oldest offensive line
    overrated and washed up RBs
    one decent defensive lineman (Ratliff)
    one decent pass rusher (ware)
    lack of youth and athleticism at ILB
    awful safeties
    inconsistent corners
    i could go on. this team is not the most talented team in the nfl, and even if they did fire their staff, they still would be in the position they are in. they’re a bad football team that needs an overhaul of youth and new talent. Let the rebuilding period commence

  10. VegasChris says: Nov 7, 2010 11:59 PM

    Hey, JJ!
    Keep the Coach!

  11. willmose says: Nov 8, 2010 12:02 AM

    Perhaps sometime this season, all the NFL bloggers, analysts, and other “experts” will come to a very simple explanation for what is wrong with ’em ‘boys. Answer: The Cowboys have a crappy team. It really is that simple.

  12. bjbroderick says: Nov 8, 2010 12:03 AM

    Screw that. Since the team has quit on Wade, I think Wade should quit on them. I would love to see give an “I quit this bitch” speech at the podium after a 42 point beatdown from the Giants next week.

  13. JimmySmith says: Nov 8, 2010 12:04 AM

    Phillips is hardly the worse coach in the NFL, Col Klink in Minnesota has that award.

  14. jumbo5383 says: Nov 8, 2010 12:07 AM

    No one would turn away from this train wreck!!!!!
    It’s like mcdonalds….I’m loving it!!

  15. timegambit says: Nov 8, 2010 12:08 AM

    JJ building that stadium is the equivalent of spending $300 on a luxury hotel suite for a hooker and having Amy Winehouse show up and take a sh*t in your bed and steal your wallet.
    You had the fun of living in the lap of luxury, but had an awful mess to clean up in the morning and you never got laid.

  16. andyprough says: Nov 8, 2010 12:11 AM

    This is way beyond coaching. Jones should send some of that high-priced talent packing as soon as possible. Can’t possibly be any worse – look at how the no-names in Cleveland manhandled the mighty Patriots today. Jones could cut about $40 million in salaries and probably sign a bunch of guys off the Omaha Nighthawks and get a better effort and the same result.

  17. Westbasco says: Nov 8, 2010 12:12 AM

    In all likelihood they use direct deposit

  18. Falcon in NE says: Nov 8, 2010 12:12 AM

    Jerry Jones forgot to mention that he will also be suffering consequences when people quit giving him money.
    More interesting than coaching changes, is it to soon for JJ look into a strategic default on Jerry World?

  19. Deb says: Nov 8, 2010 12:15 AM

    Would love some fly-on-the-wall insight to explain what’s gone wrong and how so much talent plays so badly. Obviously losing Romo has an impact, but the problems were there before he went down. Wade’s fault? Perhaps–but he’s the coach who took them to the playoffs last year. What changed?
    Very odd situation.
    I think Wade will go–and probably should. Wish he could retire rather than being fired. But the long-term answer isn’t on staff; it’s new blood–and a non-interference clause from Jones.

  20. yardbarker says: Nov 8, 2010 12:17 AM

    It’s time for Wade to ride off into the sunset.

    Future head coach says: “Dallas or Minnesota?”

  23. BroncosFan says: Nov 8, 2010 12:26 AM

    It occurred to me watching this game, on the very rare occasion a Cowboy would do something good, how much it would suck to play on this squad right now. Basically the equivalent of doing something extraordinary at work on the week the person who makes the promotion decisions is on vacation. Phillips looks too depressed to give his players meaningful feedback.
    It’s too bad – I’ll always have a soft spot for Wade ever since his drafts laid the beginning foundations for the Broncos’ SB seasons, but they really DO need to make a mid-season change, for pure morale reasons.

  24. FumbleNuts says: Nov 8, 2010 12:34 AM

    “Aot of people here will suffer consequences . . . players, coaches. . . . I’ve got lot of work to do, a lot of decisions to make.”
    He sounds like Willy Wonka.

  25. jimmySee says: Nov 8, 2010 12:40 AM

    One guy who needs to be fired is the general manager who gave the coach that pathetic bunch of so-called players.
    Who heads Dallas’ personnel department, anyway!?

  26. seanx says: Nov 8, 2010 12:41 AM

    It isn’t going to quit. Then he doesn’t get paid the rest of his contract. He loses his health insurance and benefits.
    That said, I would love to hear him say “These guys suck. Only two or three players have any heart. The owner/GM is terrible.”

  27. doe22us says: Nov 8, 2010 12:42 AM

    the highlight of the cowboys season was Dez Bryant’s dinner lol

  28. BleedPurpler says: Nov 8, 2010 12:42 AM

    What was it that Brooking said earlier????? Oh yeah, something about his team not quitting…….
    Such a disappointment to watch the Sunday Night Boring Bowl. I thought that the overly hyped ‘Boys would play harder, but have been proven way wrong.
    Clueless Klink is still worse though. What would happen if the ‘Boys took a knee when having an opportunity for more points (not once, but twice within three weeks)? Something tells me the protest flames would still be burning in Dallas and other places in Texas.

  29. moreBScrap says: Nov 8, 2010 1:04 AM

    It’s getting really old hearing about Dallas and/or Minnesota EVERY day about their problems and how bad they look. The rest of the leagues fans dont care about these 2 teams and sure get tired of the sports media talking for HOURS about what’s wrong with Dallas or how long will the Vikings keep their coach? Hey sports media…….the Bills are 0-9 and you dont rag on them. The Panthers are 1-7 just like the Cowboys but we dont spent hours on this team either…. ESPN and the rest should give it up and talk about other areas of the NFL and let those 2 cities talk about their problem teams just like the Bills and Panthers are doing cause the rest of us want to hear about them about as much as we want to hear the vuvuzella’s again.

  30. troll_aikman8 says: Nov 8, 2010 1:07 AM

    If the Cowboys lose any more games, they could be mathematically eliminated.

  31. hollywoodeggers says: Nov 8, 2010 1:08 AM

    you guys are all retarded. there are problems with this team, namely both safety positions, offensive line positions, and back ups in some significant areas. it says alot, i understand that. but to say that this team needs to be scrapped and started anew is just rediculous. i honestly don’t care what you, florio, any other retard that gets paid to blog on this site, or any legitimate guy that gets paid to blog or has played the game and is now a talking head on tv, mainly cuz they are getting paid to do it. except michael irvin cuz what he was saying tonight was truly heartfelt and you can tell he was emotionally damaged by the cowboys performance this season.
    but, like deion was saying… THIS TEAM WAS A PLAYOFF TEAM LAST SEASON!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    obviously nothing is going their way. absolutely nothing. zero. ziltch. its absolutely astonishing to me. i can’t explain it. i’m pretty sure it can’t be explained. but to say most of the utter bullshiz you all are saying is rediculous. which is why we aren’t in control of nfl teams. beacuse if we were, college teams really would be able to defeat ours.

  32. NinerDynasty says: Nov 8, 2010 1:09 AM

    @jimmysmith – hmm worse coach? that title goes to mike singletary buddy. the guy doesn’t even know what’s going on during the game.. all he does is yell at the refs… no wonder they keep calling bs on the them, they can’t stand the dude.
    As for the cowladies.. hmmm well, here’s the upcoming draft order
    Niners trade for the #1 spot with the cowladies to get Luck.

  33. Chicago Giants Fan says: Nov 8, 2010 1:09 AM

    I didn’t see the game…did Olshansky do a dance after making a tackle when they were down 38?

  34. Ilovefoolsball says: Nov 8, 2010 1:11 AM

    they need to get rid of brooking, he’s washed up and looked like he was going to cry, so did the coach, i almost felt sorry for the failboys but then i remembered how stuck up they acted in the beginning of the year and last year.

  35. troll_aikman8 says: Nov 8, 2010 1:14 AM

    It’s so funny how Parcells even said “In a year, you won’t even know I was here”, as he left the team.
    It was only his now fading blueprint on the team that kept them competitive the last 3 years. He brought that collection of coaching talent (Payton, Haley, Sporano, Pasqualoni) together and did an above average job of drafting.
    The Cowboys(i.e. Jerry Jones) are a horrible organization and deserve all the crap they take; Yes, I’m a fan but i’m not an idiot. I foresee 2-14, with a generous win towards the end of the season when some team rests its starters. The game will end 14-13.

  36. ArtModellsPimp says: Nov 8, 2010 1:29 AM

    You can paint a rose on a pig’s ass, Jerrah…but it’s not gonna smell any sweeter.
    Sell the damned Cowboys to somebody with damned sense…

  37. SkinsFanInNebraska says: Nov 8, 2010 1:29 AM

    No, JJ, PLEASE sign Phillips to a long-term deal! LOL

  38. ldjred10 says: Nov 8, 2010 1:37 AM

    Anytime a owner picks a coaches coordinators this is what you get. Jerry needs to let football people make football decisions. He needs to own, just when he started to have success with Parcell he sticks his ugly nose back in football decisions with T.O. Dallas will always struggle as long as he does what he keeps doing. Don’t blame your head coach look in the mirror Mr. Jones.

  39. florio4prez says: Nov 8, 2010 2:07 AM

    Dear Jerry,
    Please don’t fire Wade!
    We believe it is your civil duty to keep Wade for the remainder of the season. Heck, with the dire state of the economy and with unemployment what it is, we need good belly laughs whenever we can get them.
    And we know we can get them watching your ‘boys once a week.
    Most Americans

  40. Outfoxed says: Nov 8, 2010 2:17 AM

    Problem is Jones. He thinks he is a football guy–nothing could be further from the truth.
    We know what Johnson did for that team—jerruh ran him off.
    Parcells developed a great core of players, some of whom are still there—-jerruh ran him off.
    Look where that got them with nobody to recruit new blood. jerruh knows nothing

  41. The Fighting Wombat says: Nov 8, 2010 2:20 AM

    Start with the GM, then the coach, and finally the team….
    Jerrah, this is payback for the way you treated Tom Landry. Karma is a real bytch…

  42. REDSKINWARRIOR1112 says: Nov 8, 2010 2:34 AM

    Brett Farve or lmao jason campbell will be the cowgirls starting QB next season Romo will be traded to the Vikings, and Norv Turner will be the HC lol All the “experts” will predict another girls Sb before the season and they will end up 6-10!! LMAO LMAO

  43. GreggyBoy says: Nov 8, 2010 2:37 AM

    As much of an idiot as Jerry Jones, is, he does get one thing right – his team has more problems than he has fingers to point. One of those serious problems, Jerry – is YOU. You are a terrible “GM”, and it’s a shame that you won’t man-up and fire yourself from the job.
    Look at your history of terrible coaching hires. You don’t have much of an eye for personnel, either. It’s the height of hypocrisy for Jones to say “A lot of people here will suffer consequences . . . players, coaches. . . . I’ve got lot of work to do, a lot of decisions to make.” A big part of the reason your team is so terrible, is that you have done a terrible job as GM and you have made so many bad decisions. Now we’re supposed to think that because you’re going to go to work and make more decisions, that that will fix things? Yes, your coaches and several players have failed miserably, and yes Wade Phillips (and Jason Garrett) should lose their jobs, as should the special teams coach. But when you have this many coaches and players failing, that points the finger squarely at one man – and that’s YOU. When Wade Phillips was hired as head coach, his playoff record was zero wins and 5 losses – yet you somehow saw a winner. The coaches need to be fired and some of the players need to be released – but who’s going to fire you? Maybe going 1 and 15 this year, and playing to a half-empty billion dollar stadium the rest of the season, and enduring one humiliation after another, will be the wakeup call you finally need to hire a GM who knows what he’s doing. But I’m not counting on it – you’re as stubborn as you are dumb.

    Totally classless punk. There isn’t a Cowboys fan in the country who thinks the way stunzeed2 is claiming. From the moment the Boys got their butts kicked in Minnesota last year, to seeing their schedule for this year, I did not think they would make the playoffs this year, and I was concerned they might even have a losing record. I admit I didn’t think it could possibly be this bad – and nobody else did either. But nothing screams “punk” like a classless bully – and with the Boys flat on their backs, bloodied and humiliated, it takes a special kind of punk to bully their fans now. For you to take pro football that seriously and personally, and to be that nasty and foul to the fans when the team is already humiliated and destroyed, is just asinine. You usually see this kind of hatred and nastiness from jealous idiots whose teams suck now or who have not experienced anything like the 5 Super Bowl wins of the Cowboys. “Fans” like you don’t have the sense to realize that it is not to your “credit” when your team wins. The NFL is pretty much a mercenary business – and when an owner hires a great coach and great players, and the team wins, it doesn’t mean that that city or its fans are better than those of a city with a losing team. In most cases the players aren’t even from the city they’re playing in – so if your team’s millionaires outplay my team’s millionaires on any given Sunday, does that make you great, and does it mean I suck? Only if you have the mental capacity of a 6 year old. Grow up.

  45. Steve W. says: Nov 8, 2010 4:08 AM

    Jerry, if you really want to make them suffer I have an idea for you: make them continue to coach or play for the Cowboys. Once upon a time in New Orleans, the fans showed up to games and put bags on their heads. In this case, it’s the players and coaches that should be wearing the bags over their heads. It’s not like it could make them play any worse.

  46. HAILSKINS says: Nov 8, 2010 5:10 AM

    Can we stop saying once and for all that the Cowboys are one of the most talented teams in the leage? They are not and never have been. They have always been over rated. And before the but Romo is out excuses start rolling in they sucked with his sory ass too.

  47. alewatcher says: Nov 8, 2010 5:18 AM

    Jerry’s To-Do list for next week:
    1) Fire Jerry Jones – that guy sucks as GM!
    2) Fire Wade Phillips
    3) Fire everyone else
    4) Bring in the janitor as HC
    Hey, maybe Ziggy and Jerry could trade head coaches…that would be amusing, no?

  48. joetoronto says: Nov 8, 2010 5:36 AM

    The level of talent with this team is irrelevant for now.
    They have literally quit playing, outright quit.
    Phillips HAS to go now, along with a bunch of players, who have taken the disposition the HC has.
    As a fan of the NFL, I don’t want to see that crap ever again from “professionals”.
    That was downright disgusting.

  49. djeg07 says: Nov 8, 2010 6:21 AM

    @neverend, when havent the ‘boys been overrated? brookings is an over the hill biotch ass punk, newman couldnt cover a bowl of left overs, roy williams couldnt catch a beach ball, they have quit, maybe jones is letting them quiit and who does is gone in two months.

  51. Rarely Serious says: Nov 8, 2010 7:14 AM

    Hey “Neverend”. I agree with most of your painful words. This team was Parcells Superbowl bunch, but Romo`s lack of experience and bobbled snap put that light out. That`s why BP moved on and Wade rode this deal right down to the end.

  52. agenice says: Nov 8, 2010 7:23 AM

    I agreed with everybody up here who says it’s not just the coaching, it’s the entire team!!
    As anybody who isn’t in the media or a cowboys fan knows, this team has NEVER been that good. You media idiots jut prop them
    Up to be because they have the largest group of bandwagon fans in the NFL and think that if you day good thing about them, the bandwagon fans will come a running.
    All it does for the rest of the fans of the NFL is prove to us that you don’t know jack about football.

  53. hotchick says: Nov 8, 2010 7:24 AM

    Look, Just because your 13 year old boy friend called the game the Packers Super Bowl, does not mean Cowboy nation did that. If you are going to steal a phrase, dont be so obvious as to steal the one currently the rage in college football.
    Its the slam on Boise State and TCU that their two games a year against a good team is their Super Bowl. Thsi has not been a common theme with the Cowboys.
    Next, you should realize kids that one day you will understand you are rooting for laundry. The most hated player from your most hated team will end up as a key player on your favorite team and you will have orgasms for the man. So yes the A-holes on the Dallas, may one day be wearing Redskins colors. And you will call him the best at his position.
    If you’ve never seen players give up in a game, you have not been watching football long at all.
    How can we coronate th ePackers as a great team, when they only dominated the Cowboys because they suck and gave up? Dont they have to blow up a decent team to be considered great?
    Check your history. Their was a MINOR volume of Cowboys fans happy with the Wade hire. He’s too soft was the cry of most. He’s just a figure-head for Jerry. It wont work. Its proven to be true. It didn’t and has not worked. Wade was only hired because Garrett was not ready to be a HC. Remember he was hired first. That’s proven to be true too, because when given free reign of the offense, and only that, he failed. So he is still not ready.
    We praise the Dallas WR, who cant produce because they have no QB. But the RB’s are over the hill and washed up (what age are Jones and Choice?). You can judge that and in the same breathe state they are playing behind the worst line in the NFL? Maybe with a decent line they would excel like that crew the Redskins have? (Oh wait a minute) To hear it from some the Cowboys have not had a decent RB since Dorsett.
    This bunch is over the hill and that bum Emmit Smith he had a good offense line.
    So kiddies, let’s learn to be consistent in our comments.
    So is there a lineman available with the second pick in the draft?

  54. pathman56 says: Nov 8, 2010 7:30 AM

    Hey I think Spike has a new show in the works called 4th and Long II. Only this time they are looking to replace the WHOLE Dallas Cowboy team!!!!!!

  56. Altschul says: Nov 8, 2010 7:40 AM

    Cowboys are just awful, and I don’t think firing Wade will change that. The Packers may have faced more talent, better effort, and more imaginative play calling when they lined up against their practice squad during the week.
    Is Childress really worse than Phillips? Maybe. But when the worst coach debate comes out, let’s not leave Mike Singletary out of the convo. Phillips may be Poppin’ Fresh with a headset, Chilly looks, sounds, and acts like “BTK” killer Dennis Rader, but Mike is in his own alternate reality.
    A pretty good year in the NFL for people who like to watch slow-motion train wrecks!

  57. allinSTACKme says: Nov 8, 2010 7:51 AM

    I wonder if Jerry is wishing he still had the Big Tuna

  58. Unwashed Villager says: Nov 8, 2010 7:53 AM

    Cowboys players ought to be ashamed of themselves, quitting like that. I swear I saw an entire team of number 84s out there. This goes to show that many of these football players really don’t give a %$# – it’s all about showing up to get your paycheck.
    Loved the win and the fact that it was the Cowboys being exposed for the scrubs that they are. Very glad that Woodson and Matthews are Packers. Hope Dom stays on next year.

  59. gadzooks says: Nov 8, 2010 7:55 AM

    I’ve been a Cowboys fan for nearly 40 years. They seem to be turning into the worst team in franchise history. Even worse then the 85 and 89 teams. They couldn’t beat a AA high school junior varsity squad.
    They should stop calling themselves professional football players and give their paychecks back. Nothing but feckless no talent losers. Starting from the owner all the way down to the lowest levels of employees.
    They are officially the doormats of the NFL.
    That’s right, the “Dallas Doormats”. An insult to the once great Blue Star.
    Can someone (with actual knowledge of the organization) figure out what is wrong? Those of us watching can only speculate. This team has turned into a 3rd tier franchise. At least Buffalo puts up a good fight.
    I hope any coach thinking about coming to Dallas wakes up and realizes, Dallas is the place where coaches come to fail. If you want to ruin your reputation, come coach the Dallas Doormats.

  60. kevin500 says: Nov 8, 2010 8:00 AM

    Seems like Dallas should also be in the market for a GM that could find and sign talent for the team. Jones should fire himself first, and let someone with knowledge actually run the team.

  61. PolegoJim says: Nov 8, 2010 8:01 AM

    This collapse has been building for a long time.
    Too bad Jerry was basing the Cowboys future on Hope… and the year he gets the Super Bowl?
    Hope is not a strategy.
    Jerry – you know better. You should’ve prepared well for this Super Bowl, starting a year… or more… ago.

    Cowgirls are the worst team in the NFL. Bills would smoke them.

    My oh my how the motormouths are humbled.
    Boysroll is still out smoking pole.
    Any more of your predictions? What a joke you and the cowpukes are.
    Wade Phillips is a problem for sure but the cowpukes, week after week just lay down and quit. Never thought I would see the day they would just punk out. Dont start crying its because you dont have Romo. A real football team like the Steelers wasnt crying when they lost Ben. They won most of their games without him. But to punk out? Your team and organization is a laughing stock. Enjoy the beat downs.

    Clearly, they should hire Kyle Shanahan for HC.
    This guy has done everything the hard way, beating the odds as a nobody to grasp success in the NFL. Working 100% harder than everyone else has led to him being one of the youngest and most successful OCs in the league.

    2010 Dallas Cowboys could go down in NFL history as one of the worst teams ever!
    It seems like each week they “invent” new ways to get blown out! What a joke of a franchise!
    I guess we won’t hear from diehards like Vox & boysroll(L-O-L at that moniker) and all the other lowbrow Dallas fans for the remainder of the season!
    Isn’t funny, just last year(after their first and ONLY playoff win in over a decade) the Dallas fanbase was drooling with anticipation. Now…you’re just the laughing stock of the league!
    A punching bag for every other team…including Buffalo(at least they make it interesting).
    I think it’s safe to say that the Dallas Cowboys are NOT Americas team….even in their own eyes! I think, at least, one of the requirements of being “America’s Team” is being RELEVANT for more than ONE season in the last 15.
    Dallas….what a joke!

    Keep him one more week. Could use the point fir my fantasy defense.

  67. tian says: Nov 8, 2010 8:35 AM

    Wade Phillips isn’t the problem, but you gotta fire him. You gotta fire him not for just the Cowboys’ sake, but for Wade’s.
    People see the problem. He had a good run. He can coach. But this team just not a very good team. They have good players, but they lack a quarterback (sorry Romo, but I think you’re so overrated, it angers me.)
    Defensively, they are overrated and lack depth. They have an undersized pile-jumper in Brooking. The DBs are terrible. It’s not a good team.
    What they have are some good pieces in RB and WR. On defense, they have some good pieces at DE and DT. But they overspent on the has-beens on the team.

    Jerrah’s first decision should be to remove himself from the GM position and all football related issues. His ego won’t let him admit that since losing Jimmy Johnson and putting “himself” in charge that the cowboys have been and will remain losers.

    Goodell needs to fine the organization at least 125 large..

    Jerry Jones says “Aot of people here will suffer consequences . . . players, coaches. . . . I’ve got lot of work to do, a lot of decisions to make.”
    But the question is do these changes include Jerry Jones? No, he is not going to fire himself or sell the team. That is just stupid talk.
    Jones needs to see the revelation that he should behave more like an owner. A good owner. Stay in the owner’s suite and stop talking so much to the media about things coaches are supposed to answer.
    Stop hiring puppet coaches. Roll the dice with the coach you hire and let him coach. Success or fail, let him do it his way.
    Stop wearing the GM hat. It doesn’t suit you once you have the talent and they need continued evaluation. You cannot juggle personnel and that giant stadium that takes a lot of effort to fill (how’s that sponsership thing going?).
    Until Jones gets it, there will be more of the same. Fanboys can paint it anyway they want, but the Jimmy Johnson era and all those Super Bowls were many moons ago.
    Stop dredging up the past. This includes you Jerry.

    No its not as a Redskin fan I love him.

  72. MPO says: Nov 8, 2010 8:50 AM

    Please, don’t take them off of any prime time games! I totally enjoy watching them get thrashed week after week. I almost felt sorry for them after the the fumble (that wasn’t a fumble) just before the half. But they quickly drove down and scored a touchdown inside of 2 minutes and their smugness and cockiness reared it’s ugly head again, and I came to my senses and cried smite them Packers! And they did. And it was good!

  73. petro says: Nov 8, 2010 9:41 AM

    I don’t think Wade is a good coach but I really don’t think it’s all hsi fault. Mike jenkins quit on the one play and so did Witten on another. Phillips should never had been the caoch to begin with and this is an example of Jerry wanting a guy he can control.

  74. east96st says: Nov 8, 2010 9:48 AM

    “with the Boys flat on their backs, bloodied and humiliated, it takes a special kind of punk to bully their fans now’
    1) Anger management. Give it a try.
    2) You must be kidding or brand new to this site. The amount of @^%* that Cowboys fans have been spewing on these posts for years means, quite simply, it’s payback time. As a Giants fan, I remember hundreds of posts saying NY had absolutely no chance to win in Dallas during the playoffs and then during the opening of Jerruh’s new stadium, they had “no chance” there, either. It was NOT “playful” taunting, it was pure arrogance and bile. There were even some 9/11 references mixed in. I say that knowing full well that NY fans haven’t been taunted at all by Dallas fans compared to the crap you direct at the Skins and the Eagles fans. Dallas has, by far, the most classless, in-bred, sub human trash that has ever followed any sports team. You make the English soccer “hooligans” look like Stephen Hawking. Not to mention the outright cowardice of it’s fan base! The moment they lose, the Dallas trolls crawl under their rocks not to be heard from again until August when they proudly declare how they will win it all this year (it’s been going on for years!). Don’t like eating @#%*? Tell your fellow fans to stop spreading it around to all the fans of the other NFC East teams. You get back exactly the behavior you give out. Sorry it hurts you, but it’s a classic example of reaping what you sow.

  75. Duck Fallas says: Nov 8, 2010 10:04 AM

    How ’bout them Cowboys? I always look forward to their home games because someone will inevitably get to dance on the end zone star. America’s Team!

  76. Shark839 says: Nov 8, 2010 10:16 AM

    Wow the wheels have fallen off in big D! As a fan of this team for over 35 years. I honestly can’t say I have ever seen any team we have fielded in the past show this little fight or heart?
    The players can go on and on about how much they love Wade. And how its not his fault. But other than maybe Dez, not one of them have backed that up with their play.
    Time to start looking for the 15-20 guys that should stay on this team, and start building for 2011.

  77. KolbFan says: Nov 8, 2010 5:58 PM

    Where are all you loudmouth dallas fans now??

  78. steelerdynasty says: Nov 9, 2010 7:41 AM

    its not getting harder, its getting dumber. you have to honestly ask yourself, “if he’s the best coach for this team, is he also the kind of MAN/leader/coach who can guide this team out of this funk that they’re in, (this year or next)? if so, is he just waiting til next year to do it? if that’s a yes, then wtf?” bottom line, whether its actually his fault or not, he’s the man who’s at the wheel right now, the person most in a position to make changes on the field (not execution wise, but preparation and discipline wise. if he would/could fix the preparation and discipline side, then the execution takes care of itself) so he’s the person who gets the first axe. Bottom line: Coaches are easier to replace than players and this is a bottom line kind of business.
    Finally, in my humble opinion, the problem with Wade is simple. While i have no particular problem with coaches being labeled a “player’s coach”, Wade has ALWAYS misunderstood what it means. To me, a “player’s coach” is one who is RESPECTED by his players not only as a man, but also earns the respect the title behind the man commands.
    Take Jeff Fisher for example, the reason he’s so successful (and by many accounts a “player’s coach) is because he commands (not demands) respect by the way he does things. He’s not overly concerned with gaining their affections (he understands that this comes naturally after earning their respect) and seems to really understand what it means to be a player in today’s NFL.
    Wade, on the other hand, strikes me as a guy who thinks that if the guys “like” him, they’ll respect him too. He couldnt be more wrong. They will respect him like they do their other friends, until he tries to tell them what to do, then its “who the fu– does he think he is? i’m a grown man who’s gonna do what he wants!” I’m sure Wade’s a great guy, likable and all that fun stuff, but to be a successful NFL coach, you must a great LEADER OF MEN, and thats just not something Wade has ever been great at.
