The rumor mill swirling via a blog post on a website that says Wade Phillips might be gone by Monday and that Jerry Jones is inquiring with others about a coaching change. I’m not buying it at the moment.
How can a new head coach fix this thing? I’ve never heard of the web site that is posting this story (profootballbloggers.com), but I will say this. Talked to a former coach today who called the Cowboys scene a “clown show.” It is bad, but not that bad.
Changes? Not many can be made. Maybe a little more Dez here (who has a little bit of a rib problem but is okay)
and a little kicker change there (if he doesn’t perform this week), but there are not a lot of options out there. Also, word is that Leonard Davis is struggling at guard but again, what are you going to do to fix that? Montrae Holland?
Had a chance to visit with the great Charlie Pride today at VR for about a half hour. Also visited with Miles Austin for about twenty minutes talking anything but football. He’s a big fan of a new HBO show called “Boardwalk Empire.” A New Jersey based show around prohibition times. There are a lot of things wrong with the Cowboys right now, but Miles Austin is not on the list. Austin leads the league in catches (20) and yardage (288). He ain’t the problem folks.
