Cowboys Wade In

drew0209toon.gif

Growing up in Texas I was Cowboys fan. Then as I got older (12, 13) my allegiences changed over to the Saints (Archie Manning) and then on to the Broncos in 75. I bounced back to the Cowboys briefly and now I don't really have a team I root for. But I can tell you I'm not a Jerry Jones fan and his hire of Wade Phillips is a good reason why. Wade is a retreaded yes man. And that's why he will fit well for Jones but be a horrendous failure overall.I knew Phillips while he was here in Denver. I liked him as a person. Still do. But head coaching material he is not.

    DRew,

    You are right, Wade is not head coaching material. In the case of Dallas he is not a head coach, he is a defensive co-ordinator with the title of head coach. In reality the head coach is Jerry Jones, and that is a good thing for Eagles, Giants, Redskins fans. Too bad for a good guy like Wade, not a bad way to bank $9 mil though.

    My two cents.....

    Fantastic Drew, you couldn't have hit it more dead center.

    I literally laughed out loud when I heard Wade is the Cowboys new coach.

    I can't wait to see Wade dealing with T.O. Lots of material for you Drew.

    Here in Dallas, there are actually people that think "low key" Wade will make the Cowboys a winner. I guess they didn't pay much attention to the Broncos back in the early 90s.
    This move will do one of two things. He will either be there long enough for them to groom offensive coordinator Jason Garrett as head coach. Or they'll let him go when Bill Cowher is ready to return to football.

    I know I'm late but I was searching for images using the criteria of "I'm a Cowboys Fan" and found this discussion.

    So how ya'll feeling now some year and a half later? I agree Wade isn't a good head coach but neither was Switzer (1995). Just goes to show a team loaded with talent doesn't REALLY need a "head" coach. Just good coordinators. See ya back in February 2009.....
