First Thoughts

Wade Phillips

Wade Allen Phillips (born June 21, 1947) is the defensive coordinator for the Houston Texans and former head coach for the National Football League's Dallas Cowboys, Denver Broncos, and Buffalo Bills.

Jason Garrett Houston Texans Gary Kubiak Case Keenum Jerry Jones Vic Fangio Bum Phillips Joe Barry Norv Turner Matt Schaub Gregg Williams Rick Dennison Peyton Manning Rick Smith Lovie Smith Jim Schwartz Ed Reed Doug Flutie

Is it me or does Lindy Ruff have that same "aw shucks" attitude that Wade Phillips had?
Also, we think Scott Bakula should play you in a made for TV movie.. Wade Phillips as HIMSELF
I wouldn't say he's a nobody. he did play well when he was here but I don't think he's fit Wade Phillips defense, Pot roast 1/2
Wade Phillips is amazing as a defensive coordinator. Better than Jack Del Rio. For sure. I see them being a hard nose team.
I would fear the Jets defense if Rex was still the coach. Bowles is just like Wade Phillips, blitz a lot and refuse to change
I look like a young Wade Phillips today
Petition against the proposed cycle route through Burgess Park: (not against all cycle routes, just this one)
i can't wait to see what Von can do in Wade Phillips' defense dude oh my god lol
definitely. Wade Phillips is one of the best DCs in the league too. He'll make it work
The have a new starting defensive end for Wade Phillips' 3-4 defense:
Romo is the reason why management was terrible in its decisions like having Wade Phillips as head coach???
With the 3-4 coming in with Wade Phillips wouldn't be good... It's would be a addition. he's a good man as well
Sign the petition! NO to a commuter cycle route through Burgess Park fields
He said he wanted to stay, but when JDR left and Wade Phillips came in, that sealed his fate in Denver
One thing I noticed during the one game I got to watch tonight on Rahim Moore...Wade Phillips is going to make Sylvester Williams a star!
Clearly, Knighton wasn't seen as a good fit in Wade Phillips' system
Loved him, but luckily Wade Phillips defensive scheme doesn't require a great run stuffing DT.
When Wade Phillips watched the 2014 Broncos Defense he obviously didn't see Pot Roast as a fit in his 34
as it should. Really hoping Wade Phillips can get the most out of Von this year
If you watched Wade Phillips do his X's and O's on his defense and look at how Knighton plays, it'll suggest otherwise.
It's important to note that T-Knight is not the prototypical Wade Phillips NT
Knighton not the best option for a 3-4 NT...especially in a Wade Phillips system. Wade likes lighter guys
Knighton wasn't the type of player Wade Phillips desires to anchor the inside of his defense. Not sure why so many fans are surprised.

I think Wade Phillips would be a better candidate or Mike Nolan!
Wade Phillips sits out for years after having a top ranked defense over and over. Teams and people can be stupid.
I kind of want the Skins to get a high profile defensive coordinator. Someone proven like Wade Phillips or Jim Schwartz

Wait it out for Vic Fangio or hire Wade Phillips. Jim Schwartz is available Ed Donatell is better than Barry & Morris .

Jerry Jones has owned the Dallas Cowboys for 25 years. According to, the franchise is currently worth $2.3 billion, $500 million more than any other NFL team (the Patriots are next at $1.8 billion). That figure is mind-boggling for a couple reasons. First, Jones bought the Cowboys in 1989 for $140 million. Second, despite being known as "America's Team," the Cowboys have done little in recent years to earn the nickname. The club has had back-to-back-to-back 8-8 records and haven't made the playoffs under Coach Jason Garrett, who took over for Wade Phillips in 2010. But in a game where success is measured by regular-season records and postseason appearances, Jones has found a way to make a lot of money in the absence of wins. And on some level, he seems OK with that. Back in April, during a conference announcing that AT&T Stadium would host the 50th annual Academy of Country Music Awards in April 2015, Jones had this to say about the Cowboys' incredible popularity despite, you know, all the medi ...

List of Houston Texans head coaches Gary Kubiak led the Texans to their 1st division championship and 1st playoff win. The Houston Texans are a professional American football team based in Houston, Texas. They are members of the South Division of the American Football Conference (AFC) in the National Football League (NFL). The Texans joined the NFL in 2002 as an expansion team and have always played at the Reliant Stadium.[1] Houston's previous franchise, the Houston Oilers, moved to Nashville, Tennessee in 1997, and changed their name to the Tennessee Titans in 1999.[2] There have been three head coaches for the Texans franchise. Their first head coach was Dom Capers, who coached from 2002 to 2005. He was replaced by Gary Kubiak, who started coaching the team in 2006, and is the team's leader in wins (61), losses (63) and winning percentage (.492). Kubiak was fired on December 6, 2013, after an 11-game losing streak.[3] He was replaced on an interim basis by defensive coordinator Wade Phillips, with the ...
Former Texans defensive coordinator Wade Phillips isn't with the team anymore, but he would still like to see Houston take Johnny Manziel with the No. 1 overall pick in the draft.

Maybe losing their offensive and defensive coordinators is exactly what the Bengals needed. At least according to three examples in the past 20 years. Although there is no all-time list since varying responsibilities can't be explained in titles, ESPN and Elias Sports Bureau offered the three clubs Wednesday. The year after these teams lost their coordinators, two went to a conference title game and one got a first-round bye, results the Bengals would have taken this season. The most recent example came after the 2006 season when Chargers offensive coordinator Cam Cameron became head coach of the Dolphins and defensive coordinator Wade Phillips went to Dallas as head coach. But the Chargers were able to go 11-5 to win the 2007 AFC West title before getting beat by the Patriots in Foxboro in the AFC title game. See more:

While the Houston Texans have officially fired Wade Phillips, I am still a huge fan of Wade's and of his father, Bum. Wade will land another great gig and continue to make a difference in the NFL. Both men deserve admiration and respect. God speed, Mr. Phillips. The team WILL miss you. It is because of you that talents such as JJ Watt and Brian Cushing were able to reach their potential for greatness.
Wade Phillips has never recovered from starting Doug Johnson over Doug Flutie in the playoffs oh so long ago.
should fire Dom Capers and hire Wade Phillips.
Hypothetical situation: Fire Monte Kiffin and hire Wade Phillips as DC, good move? -Anthony
Ouch this can't be good.For you Charger fans the Mike mention is not good...this is a gambling tip."SUGGESTION NO. 6: "Before you pick a team, just make sure Marty Schottenheimer, Herm Edwards, Wade Phillips, Norv Turner, Andy Reid, Anyone Named Mike, Anyone Described As Andy Reid's Pupil and Anyone With the Last Name Mora" Isn't Coaching Them."
Green Bay needs to get rid of Dom Capers promote Kevin Greene to DC or hire Wade Phillips
If Case Keenum played defense, Wade Phillips would've kept his job. good luck You will be missed.
Sean Peyton was the man Parcells was grooming to take his place, once Bill retired as coach of the Cowboys. That is the same Sean Peyton that beat the Eagles in Phili last night. That is the same Sean Peyton that almost always gets the Saints into at least the second round of the playoffs, if not farther. But instead of Sean Peyton, the Cowboys got Wade Phillips and Jason Garrett. Way to go Jerry Jones, you egotistical moron !!!
The Houston Texans can "kiss my grits" ! Newspaper says O'Brien is a "loyal person". So am I. I also treat people like I want to be treated. So, after 2 days on the job, O'Brien fires Chick outstanding running backs coach...and Wade outstanding defense coach and a "Texas Legend". Two men "doing a real good job" ! Just like the Astros getting rid of Nolan Ryan.Rockets and Clyde Drexler.Oilers and Earl Campbell. NO RESPECT ! I hope Wade and Chick get jobs and "kick the Texan's ***". O'Brien may be a good coach.but his "in your face attitude" AND "LACK OF RESPECT" for people doing a good job doesn't set well with me. Now you know how I really feel. GO SAINTS..!

Most realistic Lions coaching solution I would be happy with. HC -Lovie Smith, OC -Jeff Tedford, DC- Wade Phillips

Giants fan everywhere would like to thank Jerry Jones for keeping Jason Garrett as HC. It has been a pleasure watching you choke year after year. Garrett is almost lovable as Wade Phillips. Cowboy fans can blame Tony Romo all they want, but it starts at the top. Also, because giants fans are greedy, we would like to show our support of jerry keeping Monte kiffin and his Tampa 2 defense as well. Thank you and best wishes (but not really) a smirking giants fan
Houston Texans 2013 - 2014 season. Record: 2-14. Dissappinted, very much so, but there is a lot of upside to this team next year. If Bill O'Brien is our coach, my personal favorite candidate, I believe we keep Wade Phillips as our DC. At 44 years old, O'Brien brings that "In your face" attitude as a coach. I'm hoping we draft Jake Matthews, Johnny Manziel, or Anthony Barr, but I'm sure Rick Smith will go for hype. I believe Clowney could fit, but his work ethic needs to improve in order to succeed. We may lose Daniels, Smith and Tate, but with Arian coming back healthy, I'm sure our offense will thrive once more. Hopkins will mature better and Andrw, well, he's Andre. The O-Line is my biggest concern, particularly the left side, but I'm sure with great drafting or offseason pick ups, we should be fine. I believe Case Keenum will come in next year as our number one, especially if we draft defense first. With an entire off season and training camp, I believe he can develop nicely. But Arian back will be HUG ...
Wade Phillips showing his class again. via
Will someone please beg Bill Cowher to come out of retirement, take full control of coaching and gm responsibilities of the Dallas Cowboys, and rid us of this mediocre display of peewee football coaching prowess of Garett and co. Since Barry Switzer left after 97 we have been to a total of 6 playoff games, with one victory coming at the hands of Wade Phillips. 1. Uno. And Jones fired him for 8-8 Garett. 17 years, one playoff victory., One. Enough said
is it me or does Jason Garrett look as confused as Wade Phillips did when he coached the Cowboys.
The Houston Texans are close to choosing their new coach. Ian Rapoport reports that Penn State's Bill O'Brien and interim Texans coach Wade Phillips have interviewed for the top job.
Black Monday preview. Jets keep Ryan. Shanahan likely out in DC. Frazier will be out in Minny. Schwarz in Detroit the biggest under-achievers in NFL will get the door. Allen seems a goner in Oakland. Ditto for Munchak in Tennessee. Smith in Atlanta if I owned/ran team. Will any former head coaches like Lovie Smith, Brian Billick, Josh McDaniel, Mike Shula, Wade Phillips, Jack Del Rio, Lane Kiffin be recycled in NFL or college? Penn State will be looking if Bill OBrien takes Texans job as expected. Minnesota will be looking if Jerry Kill quits for health reasons. Don't expect Tom Coughlin to step down with Giants but its a possibility. Ed Orgeron deserves a head job in college. No chance Tony Dungy or Jon Gruden leave TV.
any respect I had for Wade Phillips being an ex Bronco and all has been erased the last week.
To be fair, the Texans tanking began and ended when they named Wade Phillips interim coach.
On the Move??? -Redskins HC Mike Shanahan on his way out as early as this evening... -Penn State to push for Buccaneers HC Greg Schiano. -Houston Texans interview and very interested in Penn State HC Bill O'Brien. Texans also interview Wade Phillips and will also interview Chargers OC Ken Whisenhunt. -Jets LB Coach Brian VanGorder to become Notre Dame's DC. -Chris Fowler to the morgue if not for Jessie Palmer's Heimlich help.
C Ben Jones is really trying to show Wade Phillips something during pregame. Just rolled out on a boot & threw on the run.
I'm going to go out on a limb. However, I am good with Bill O'Brien. I'll put my reputation on the line. I have made many bold statements and been right just about everytime. From JJ Watt being the correct pick, to Kareem being a solid corner(which he actually is despite the more common belief), to the Ed Reed signing was wack(said then we should have kept Quinn), to the fact I said both Trindon Holliday and Jacoby Jones would both succeed once they left, to the fact that I said both David Carr and Matt Schaub were done at their respective times, to the fact that I said Joe Marcianno was the worst ST coach in the NFL, to the fact I said Wade Phillips would make the defense relevant for a year or two, but was essentially a bandaide on the more severe issue, which of course was that Gary Kubiak could not and would not lead the Texans to the promise land. That was the worst run-on sentence of all time, but you get the point. I am tooting my own horn because a major portion of the city criticized me for every ...
Here is the latest Texas sports news from The Associated Press DALLAS (AP) — Erik Cole scored two goals in the second period to lead the Dallas Stars to a 4-1 victory over the Nashville Predators last night. Cole scored the tiebreaking goal on a drive from the right circle at 7:38. He scored again at 14:04 when he slid the puck between Carter Hutton and the right goal post. Dallas is 4-0-1 in its last five games. IRVING, Texas (AP) — Tony Romo had back surgery and will miss Dallas' third straight season finale with the NFC East title and a playoff berth on the line. Coach Jason Garrett says Romo underwent surgery yesterday after consulting doctors following his injury in last Sunday's win over Washington. Kyle Orton will start for the Cowboys in the winner-take-all game against Philadelphia tomorrow night.

Wade Phillips: NFL agrees 50th TD was a bobble: Wade Phillips would like to put an asterisk on Peyton Manning's...
The Texans are 2-13 and Wade Phillips is worried about how one of Peyton Manning's touchdowns shouldn't have counted. LOL
One of the most important quarterback decisions of 2014 will be made about 90 minutes before the 2013 finale. Texans interim coach Wade Phillips said that presumptive mop-up starter Case Keenum was limited in practice today, and would be a game-time decision for Sunday’s game against the Titans,...

Wade Phillips is learning 'new rules': . Even when he was just the Texans' defensive coordinator, Wade Phillips...
For those of you interested in the possibility of Louvie Smith to Dallas, well the Houston Texans interviewed Smith today for their HC position. Wonder what would happen there with their defense as Smith is traditionally a 4-3 guy and Wade Phillips who is currently their interim HC was running a 3-4. If Smith lands the HC position, don't be surprised if he reaches out to try and reunite with his long time friend and past D-coord Rod Marinelli to install a version of the defense they ran in Chicago.
1Here are 10 reasons you can’t blame Romo: 1. The problems in Dallas start at the top with owner Jerry Jones. The team is not only 7-7 this year but has a 135-135 record since 1997. The only common denominator is Jones. He hired the coaches. He picked the players. He set the tone for lack of accountability throughout the organization. He is the one responsible for this mess first and foremost. 2. Coach Jason Garrett is 28-26 since taking over for Wade Phillips in 2010. Most damning is a 4-22 record against teams with a .500 or better record since 2011. The blown 23-point lead was only the second-biggest in franchise history. The worst was a 24-point third-quarter lead to the Detroit Lions in 2011 on Garrett’s watch. Poor game management has been a problem throughout Garrett’s tenure. It was again Sunday. 3. Offensive coordinator and play-caller Bill Callahan’s pass-happy tendencies are all over this debacle. The fact Romo threw 49 passes to just 18 runs is mind-boggling considering the Cowboys had ...
Jason Garrett is 28-26 as Cowboys coach. For those who disliked Wade Phillips, Cowboys were 34-22 with a playoff win for him
Chan Gailey. Dave Campo. Bill Parcells. Bobby Petrino. Wade Phillips. Jason Garrett. John L Smith. Perhaps Im the *** for still watching football
So I just listened to Jason Garrett's press conference on the Cowboys app I have and he throws Romo under the bus sayin the last play calls were runs... Ok so here's my argument towards that... I didn't see any of this game but coming from the stats he only ran the ball 7 times total in the 2nd half??? Let's see you did the same thing last week against Chicago and Murray had 99yards goin into the half last week and you quit running... Did Romo change all of those plays too Garrett? Did he change all the play calls in the 2nd half of both the Bears and Packers games? I'm confused bc I know your pass happy... Even with Wade Phillips there you passed passed passed!!! Yet you said he made these calls??? As I remember the play runs through you now from Callahan... So what does that mean? Bc your so whop-sided on what your saying!! Everyone on the staff is an *** ! The only coach that has an fire at all is Rod Marinelli and he is about the only one who makes sense on the whole staff!!! I don't get it!! Jerry .. ...
Hey, folks..  I'm feeling lousy today, and my picks haven't been my highest priority. But I wanted to at least get something posted before I call it a night. Last week I got 11 of 16 right, which is pretty fair. I'm at 133-74-1 for the season, same as XM-Radio's Bruce Murray and 4 better than XM's Rich Gannon. I was particularly happy to have picked Miami over Pittsburgh, and very disappointed with the Sunday Night and Monday Night results. So on to Week 15.   News for this week - Wade Phillips is back in the lead chair in Houston; and Robert Griffin III is on the bench in Washington. Virtually all of the games this week involve playoff or playoff-contending teams. A notable exception is Washington @ Atlanta - where the losing coach may feel the temperature go up on his desk chair. The other example, Buffalo @ Jacksonville, involves teams that are still rebuilding - with first-year coaches. No real pressure there.   Thursday Night: San Diego @  Denver: When I made my Thursday night pick, I presumed th ...

Same thing as what got Wade Phillips fired in Buffalo with the Rob Johnson debacle. McCown isn't Kurt Warner, but he is...
DALLAS COWBOYS SHOULD BE ASHAMED!!! IDIOTIC DEFENSE! WHAT DEFENSE? I'VE SEEN HIGH SCHOOL PLAYERS WHO ARE BETTER ON DEFENSE THAN THE DALLAS COWBOYS. WORSE DEFENSE THAT THE COWBOYS HAVE EVER HAD, EVEN INCLUDING 1960 WHEN THEY WERE 1-11-1 !!! By season's end, Dallas Cowboys' defense could go down as worst in NFL history. The Cowboys have already become the first NFL team to allow four 400-yard passers in a season. Their pass defense, also ranked last, is on pace to become the first NFL unit to allow 5,000 passing yards in a season (the record is 4,796 by Green Bay in 2011). They screwed up when they fired Wade Phillips a few years ago and replaced him with *** Garrett. They screwed up when they fired Rob Ryan last year. They hired Defensive coordinator Monte Kiffin and line coach Rod Marinelli to fix the DEFENSE!! Worst year ever, this year!! FIRE GARRETT, FIRE MARINELLI, FIRE KIFFIN, and please, please, DIE... Jerry Jones!! I heard and announcer say tonight that Jerry Jones was mad because Jay Ratliff ( ...
Texans interim coach Wade Phillips when asked who his backup quarterback is: "T.J. Yates has a back problem. Matt Scha…
Hey Matt why are they so high on Lovie Smith when his record is comparable to Wade Phillips.
Wade Phillips gettin moved up, we just need an OC.Mike Tomlin might be available if steelers fire him. It's likely. And true! Smh
So thursday night the Jacksonville Jaguars (4-9) beat the Houston Texans (2-11) in a cream of the crap game. Yeah, Houston is just a team that is dead in the water, getting swept by the Jags and losing 11 straight games. The Texans fired Greg Kubiak yesterday and Wade Phillips will be taking over as head coach. Look for the Texans to clean up the QB spot in the draft this year. Case Keenum just hasn't shown enough to say that he's the answer and anyone with a functioning brain knows Matt Schaub isn't the answer either. Why Houston stuck with Schaub (who I see as garbage) for this long is a total mystery to me. I still like that Houston pass rush, but they need to get better against run in order for their defense to be complete. This game featured both Matt Schaub and Case Keenum, both looked pretty ineffective for the most part. I didn't really watch enough of the game to go too in depth but just looking at the box scores, I've already seen enough to not even have to look at any clips of the game. Houston ...
Wade Phillips gets another crack at head coaching:
Wade Phillips to serve as interim head coach - Houston Texans
If the Texans get Lovie Smith I hope the Chargers get Wade Phillips back to run our defense

Wade Phillips, Lovie Smith will be Texans head coach candidates
Wade Phillips is the future of the Houston Texans.

By my count, Houston are third team Wade Phillips has served as interim head coach. A credit, I think, to his calm.
Hiring Wade Phillips as interim coach is pretty much clinching the number one pick.
Wade Phillips will eventually coach every NFL team at least once, while not managing your local Chipotle.

Wade Phillips takes over head coaching duties for Kubiak. Toro the mascot replaces Marciano. Both upgrades, but temporary.
Buy Miche Bag Online!
I think Phillips hates Marciano. They got into it a little in AZ on sideline. Bet a Wade told McNair he had to go now.
...if it's gonna be Wade Phillips then they're not even trying to get better
I wouldn't doubt if Wade Phillips remains the head coach he's a players coach and might do some good for them
Kubiak is out in Houston. Team owner Bob McNair announced Friday that the Texans have fired their longtime coach after dropping a franchise-record 11th consecutive game Thursday night -- a 27-20 loss to the Jacksonville Jaguars -- to tumble to 2-11 on the season.'s Peter King first noted Friday that he expected the team to fire Kubiak, who exits after seven-plus seasons and a 61-64 mark with the Texans in the regular season. McNair told reporters that defensive coordinator Wade Phillips will take over as interim coach for the remainder of the campaign. He also announced that young quarterback Case Keenum will start the rest of the way. General manager Rick Smith, who sat beside McNair during the news conference, is safe. The Texans also fired special teams coordinator Joe Marciano. Marciano's assistant Bob Ligashesky will oversee the special-teams unit for the final three games, NFL Media Insider Ian Rapoport reports. "Taking action now instead of waiting allows us the process of finding a new ...
My prediction: they will go with John Gruden or Nick Saben and try to keep Wade Phillips as D.C. All is for nothing unless they do something about that offensive line, a blocking tight end, and a running back that understands pass protection.
So Kubiak much as I liked him the truth was he was still playing as if was the 90's, the other teams caught on and the NFL has evolved so much that the old way of playing got you no where and it showed this season. Last season caught everyone off guard and they were ready for it this year, I wish him the best of luck because he did great things here. I don't expect much changes with Wade Phillips as Head coach for the remainder of the season though. So now we need that next level kind of coach. Still love my Houston Texans!
fired head coach Gary Kubiak after going 2-11 on season so far. Wade Phillips will take over
If McNair really wants a coach w/head coaching experience, he could go Lovie Smith, Wade Phillips, Jon Gruden or, um, IDK, Brad Childress.
Breaking News: Houston Texans head coach Gary Kubiak has been fired. Wade Phillips is interim head coach.
Wade Phillips has been talking for a few minutes, nothing but quips & jokes - like coaching against Bobby Layne & Four Horsemen.
I wonder if Ed Reed gonna blame Wade Phillips for getting burn against the Ravens its a young mans game in the secondary Ed see yoself out the door and tell Champ Bailey the same
I hope Bob McNair isn't listening to pitch for Wade Phillips as the head coach. No more feel good, loyal moves please.
Ed Reed says clashes with Wade Phillips led to his release:
delayed reaction Tony has a delayed reaction...all joking aside, YES!! Rick Smith and Wade Phillips too...
add Wade Phillips and Rick Smith to your list as well
Texans *** are you doin Keenum is not the problem the defense is and Matt Shaub is certainly not the answer! Bob McNair please excuse Gary Kubiak and Wade Phillips of their duties at end of season for Aggies headcoach Kevin Sumlin to lead Case Keenum and the Houston Texans next season!!!
My baby Andrew Johnson met coach Wade Phillips today on a field trip to Reliant Stadium!! Also among the spotted were Andre Johnson and Arian Foster. Also, Bob McNair and Rick Smith!!! He's one happy boy!!!
disagree. They need a Bill Cowher type guy. Wade Phillips and Garrett aren't guys to get in someone's face
The Texans release future Hall of Fame safety Ed Reed after just 7 games with the team. The Texans signEd Reed to a 3-year contract back in March. The reasons why Ed Reed was released by the Houston Texans today was the comments that Ed made the other day that the Texans were outplayed and outcoached in their 27-24 loss to the Arizona Cardinals and Ed was not playing and producing that much this year for the Texans. Ed only had 16 tackles and zero interceptions in 7 games (5 starts) with the Texans. Ed was benched 2 weeks ago when they lost to the Colts at Reliant Stadium and then was relegated to a backup role this past Sunday in their loss to the Cardinals and he played only 12 plays. Wade Phillips said after the game the other day that you have to keep those comments that Ed made in house.
It may be time for Jerry Jones to pass to touch over to his son Stephen Jones cause his old age is clouding his judgement. He should of moved Wade Phillips to defensive cordinator, Rob Ryan to Head coach, and fired Jason Garret. And as far as the personnel, I would of kept Mike Jenkins, DeMarcus Ware, Keith Brooking, Anthony Spencer, Morris Claiborne, and Sean Lee. All the other defensive should of been fired and replaced. As far as the offense, I would if kept Marcellus Bennett, fired the entire offensive line, got rid of Miles Austin Injured prone *** fired and replaced DeMarco Murray. We should of NEVER released/traded Terrell Owens, Marion Barber, Terry Glen, Emmett Smith, Roy Williams (SS), Keith Brooking, And probably Brady James. Therefore, it's about that time for Jerry Jones to retire.
For me to comment on the game, I have to take you back. Follow me back to the 2007 season. Bill Parcells leaves. They were looking for a coach and before they hired a head coach, they hired Jason Garrett to be the offensive coordinator. He was going to run the 90's Cowboys offense. Timing based, read before the snap, throw to a spot, run and pass balanced offense. I thought it was good. Good for Romo, good for the talent. Wade Phillips is hired. They go 13-3. Thought the Cowboys were a top tier team the next year. They go 9-7 and miss the playoffs. Since Jason Garrett got to the Cowboys, there are certain things that we see every year: - Lots of Offensive line Penalties (Holding, Offsides) - Lots of procedure penalties (2 players in motion, 12 men on the field) - No Balance on offense - No in game adjustments - problems converting short yardage situations - Problems scoring touchdowns in the Redzone - Offense puts up big yards but is unable to sustain drives The up and down nature of the offense ...
I hope this is the game Jason Garrett gets fired like Wade Phillips did against the Green Bay packers, when they got blown out.
Wade Phillips must be BUM that the Texans lost
Agreed. Not a huge fan of Kubiak but still feel bad for him after last week's incident. Wade Phillips is a bum though.
Wade Phillips is a bum... He was when he was the Cowboys head coach too...
