We all seen this coming right? After the teams dismal performance on Sunday night football, Jerry Jones finally decided to pull the plug on Phillips in in Big D. It was time and a lot will say it was long overdue. Jerry Jones had said that he was committed to Phillips but this season has just turned out to be a disaster for the Cowboys.
Dallas was supposed to be a trendy Super Bowl pick heading into this year but got off to an ugly 1-4 start before starting QB Tony Romo was laid out for the year against the Giants. Since the lost of Romo, the team has looked dazed and confused. They didn't put up a fight in their two games since losing Romo. The debacle that was the Sunday night game last night versus Green Bay showed that the players had given up on Phillips. Their is no way Jerry Jones, being the type of owner he is, will put up with that just pathetic brand of football they played and Wade Phillips became the scapegoat.This is their worst season since 1989 and among the worst in franchise history by record alone. Phillips leaves Dallas with a 34-22 record over 4 1/2 seasons guiding the Cowboys. He also was 1-2 in the postseason. Dallas won the NFC East twice on his watch.
Dallas now will turn the controls over to offensive coordinator Jason Garrett, who was suppose to be the Head Coach in waiting anyway. He will now get his chance to prove if he is able to handle being a head coach. Even if he does a good job there will be a lot of speculation about his job security. Dallas has been rumored with Bill Cowher, Jon Gruden, Minnesota DC Leslie Frazier and current Carolina head coach John Fox.
Nothing will fix this season for the Cowboys, they will just have to play it out and hope for the best next year, because this season is over. The entire team and coaching staff are just auditioning for Jerry's world next season.
