The inevitable has happened: Wade Phillips has been fired. According to CBSDFW.com, Phillips is out. The interim J. Garrett (US Presswire)head coach? Jason Garrett.

After the Cowboys’ no-show at Green Bay Sunday night, most people figured Phillips was done. Thus, the big story here is that Jerry Jones has chosen to hand over the head coaching duties to Garrett.

Jones made Garrett one of the highest-paid assistants in the NFL three years ago because, otherwise, the offensive guru would have taken the Atlanta or Baltimore head coaching jobs. But since then, Garrett’s star has dimmed, especially this season. The Cowboys have one of the most simplistic offensive systems in the NFL. They have not been able to establish an identity, particularly in the run game. And, many of the offensive stars have mastered the art of the mental mistake (false starts, failed blitz pickups, etc.)

Jones is likely using the final eight games this season to determine whether Garrett can be the long-term head coach of this club.

By turning to Garrett, Jones is not only minimizing the immediate upheaval that a midseason coaching shakeup causes, he’s also hedging his bets in case the league’s labor strife leads to a lockout. If there is a lockout, teams won’t be able to practice during the offseason, which makes it extremely difficult to bring in a new coaching staff.

leave it to a eagle fan to run his mouth when his own team is made up of born again dog killers and underacheivers. when you can count to five let us know , besides your still reeling from the 3 straight beating s we gave you last year. Enjoy watching your dog killer felon crash and burn again in the playoffs , and us cowboys fans will start looking towards next year.. and the year after that and the year after that...


@sbuckeye9571 .. your pathetic ... how about the years before when we laid beatings on your team.
and ya know the dog killer thing is getting old - get something new .. so enjoy watching your the equivalent of NFL europe in Arlington.
And the next year and the next year. Heck , a college team could be the cowboys right now. your team stinks and so does your coach.

When and how did Jones get so in love with Garrett? It was the Big Tuna and Peyton (New Orleans HC) who got the offense going. Then Garrett took over and what has become of all the talent? ? ? ? ? When you hire an OC before you hire the Head Coach, you are setting up the Head Coach to FAIL. Jones should have let Phillips hire his own staff. It was like having two head coaches - didn't work Jones! ! ! ! ! It is a bland offense which the "Highly Paid" OC was directing and getting minimal production from so many "stars."
