12:31 ET UPDATE: Our Cowboys RapidReporter , Nick Eatman, says that Wade Phillips has been seen at Valley Ranch, contrary to earlier reports. As usual after night games, Phillips flew back with owner Jerry Jones Sunday following the game.
By all indications, the ax has already fallen on beleaguered Cowboys head coach Wade Phillips. ESPN reports that Phillips’ leased SUV was not in the Cowboys’ Valley Ranch parking lot as of 9:00 a.m. CT, and Phillips has not been seen around the facility.
Normally, Jerry Jones meets with the Cowboys coaching staff on Monday mornings to watch game film.
In an even more ominous sign, the Cowboys have called a 4:00 p.m. CT press conference. Phillips has not confirmed with the media whether he has discussed his job status with Jones.
After Sunday night’s embarrassment at Green Bay, Jones said, “There are a lot of people here who are certainly going to suffer and suffer consequences. I'm talking about within the team, players, coaches, who have got careers. This is certainly a setback. I know first hand what it is to have high expectations."
