Wade Phillips to be fired today?

By Marc A. Greenberg

It has to come today, it just has to.

After suffering a 45-7 thumping at the hand of the Green Bay Packers, Albert Breer of NFL Network is reporting that Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones will meet with the entire coaching staff (Wade Phillips included) this afternoon.

“There are a lot of people here who are certainly going to suffer and suffer consequences,” Jones said after the game.  “I’m talking about within the team — players, coaches who have got careers.  This is certainly a setback.  I know firsthand what it is to have high expectations.  I think unquestionably that our expectations were thinking we’re something we were not, possibly looking at what might be relative to a Super Bowl.  All of those things have certainly contributed early.”

“I think everybody in this country would agree that there’s a lot wrong with this team that we’ve got to address, and I’m certainly the one to address it.”

At 1-7, the first decision starts with new coaching.
