    Why fire Wade in his last season on his contract? Especially after a close game with a division rival. If that ball never bounced off Witten's foot this conversation wouldn't be happening. D-Unit is right about everything he's posted in this thread. Only Garrett will get the inexperienced nod, and that would be after the season which is very far off if that happens at all. What if Wade ends up winning the Super Bowl? Then what? All this talk is way too early, and Jerry isn't dumb enough to fire a coach in midseason.

      I think the Cowboys will fire Phillips in midseason without a 2nd thought if they turn miserable performances in 2-3 consecutive games against inferior opponents. I'm basing that not on the 2 games this yr so much as Jerry Jones' psychology, his personality that I believe to be driven by his self image & that's about 75% hubris. He will can him in a heartbeat if he believes he has been personally embarrassed by the team.

      The November schedule is a minefield IMO for Phillips' job security:

      11/1 -- Seattle
      11/8 -- @ Philly
      11/15 -- @ GB Packers
      11/22 -- Washington Skins
      11/26 Thxgvg. -- Raiders

      The whole country will be watching on Thxgvg. & the Raiders are an inferior team, if they lose then I think it's over for Phillips. That's guaranteed if previous losses put them on the brink of playoff contention & that game becomes a Must Win for Dallas to see a WC berth. Any way you slice it they have to win some tough games in October 1st.

      I think Jones held on to Phillips b/c he did want to give him 2 full yrs., he knew he would take significant press heat if he did after only 1 yr of the Phillips regime with a yr left on his contract. His chosen successor was Fisher in Tennessee & Bud Adams locked him a yr. earlier I think after all the Jerry Jones speculation of poaching him. So that was a factor, then Shanahan became available in a big surprise firing at Denver & now we have all the speculation that he's an automatic Phillips replacement. It has magnified to include Cowher but that's not feasible, Cowher's personality would not allow him to ever work for Jones, let's get real here. I think Cowher is going back to his home in North Carolina & coach the Panthers of his alma mater, NC St.

We lost last night on a last second FG. I mean geez. Talk about the sky is falling. The season is so young we could've started off at 0-4 or more and still have a chance at the playoffs. This is the NFL. It's a crazy unpredicatable world and I just think it's funny that people can convince themselvs of being right. Myself included sometimes.

          But if you think Wade will be fired after Week 5 with a record of 3-2 or 4-1 then I have to say, that is bold... and borderline ridiculous.
          You are wrong about opening the season not looking good.....Philly looked great! The Ravens and Jets looked good! You call me a sheep? I am questioning a coach that has a proven track record of not getting it done. I am not following the everything will be fine line like you. What will you say if we end up 7-9 or 9-7 and miss the playoffs? The truth is the boys have played 3 games and have looked bad in all three. We all agree that this is a talented team that is underachieving....Why? In the age of parity the only advantage you can have is a good front office and coaching staff. Our coaching staff is bad.....We have gotten away with two wins on talent alone. I would like to see this team really play a complete game.

            As much as I like the idea of Bill Cowher, doesn't seem like he would be able to work with Jerry for some reason.


            Now as far as our defense, I see what Rex Ryan has done with the Jets D, and I thought that's how we would look more often, and he turned that D around instantly. Wade's not our longterm coach, I just don't think his style fits what we need here.


            We need more of a hard ass coach, I like the idea of Shanny, not so much Holmgren, Cowher I think is headed for Carolina which makes too much sense.


            Let's see how Wade does this year though, I'm not expecting Super Bowl, but he's got to keep our Defense strong all year, and show he can make adjustments throughout the year...I don't love him, but firing him would only make the season that much worse.


            Some of our fans need to learn to not be so knee jerk with the good and the bad.

                Mid season probably won't happen.

                Here's my wish list:

                1. Fisher - I know he's under contract, but who knows if they keep going south.

                2. Holmgren - Would be great for Romo and he's an authoritative coach. Would command respect.

                I don't care for Shannahan. Can't really put my finger on it, but I just don't think he would be a good hire. Cowher isn't going to happen and frankly, I think Cowher is a little overrated.

                    What about bringing in Ron Rivera and Mike Martz? You have some Mike Martz guys. Just give him full control of the O and he'll be happy.

                      I wouldn't mind Martz as a coordinator. The guy is very good at that. Rivera seems to have some mixed opinions. Some say he's good, but others say he's overrated. I'm not sure what to make of him.

                        Oddly... I'm not gonna laugh at that one right off the bat. Martz has won just as many SBs as Parcells, Shanny and Cowher (or did he just win 1?). His offense is explosive. Kitna already knows it. So he can further help mentor Tony. Roy knows it. Our OL is fine in it. No massive overhaul like a Shanny offense would command.

                        Rivera is one of the most highly respected DC's in the league and took over for Wade's 34 in San Diego and is running well with it.

                        I'm game.

                          Martz won one Super Bowl as the offensive coordinator of the Rams in 99, and he took them back to the Super Bowl as head coach in 2001. As a head coach he leaves something to be desired without a good defensive coordinator like Lovie Smith on the side, but it's clear that he's a damn good coordinator.

                          I'm glad you said that about Rivera D-Unit. If he can run Wade's and his own system well, then he'd be a good replacement. Maybe in a semi perfect world we'd have Billick as the head coach, Martz as the O coordinator, and Rivera as the D coordinator. I'd be stoked with that.

                            There are a few problems here. In order to get Rivera he would have to be the HC (IIRC) I don't think his contract is up with San Diego yet. Rivera would also likely have to be cool with Martz who is hard to work with. IE being cool with Martz getting paid as much as he does and not doing anything with the offense. Its alot to ask for. Also Martz has to hire his position coaches we don't want what happened in Detroit to happen in Dallas.

                            Personally I think your best combo (assuming that Rivera isn't still on contract with San Diego is)

                            Marty Schottenheimer
                            Mike Martz
                            Ron Rivera

                            that is just my opinion.

                              Pass on Martz. The guy has bombed in all his most recent attempts, what has he done lately to deserve our attention?

                                He's definitely not the first choice. But I did entertain the thought.
