A lot of speculation around the WWW today that in a 4PM Press Conference it will be announced that Cowboys Coach Wade Phillips has been fired after an embarrassing loss to the Green Bay Packers Sunday Night…
Wade Phillips Fired? Signs Point to Ax Falling
By all indications, the ax may have already fallen on beleaguered Cowboys head coach Wade Phillips, reports CBSSports.com’s Andy Benoit.
ESPN reports that Phillips’ leased SUV was not in the Cowboys’ Valley Ranch parking lot as of 9:00 a.m. CT, although Phillips was later 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.”
Their listless performance has kicked off a new round of speculation about the job security of coach Phillips, despite recent statements from Jones that a midseason firing was unlikely.
Afterward, a despondent Phillips said simply: “We looked like a bad football team – with bad coaching.”

The Cowboys are a damn joke! The problem is far from Wade Phillips. It’s start with Jerry Jones and his micromanagement of the team. He has to understand that Emmitt, Troy and Micheal are gone. Finally, he has to get rid of some players:Roy Williams, Tony (Choke) Romo and purchase a new offensive line.
Also, I wonder will he do like Tampa Bay Buccaneers and Pittsburgh Steelers?

Yes, I agree with you and add that having Jason Garrett as interim head coach is a bad idea.
For some reason Jerry Jones doesn’t like change but he should have fired all of the coaches along with Phillips.
The problem is no reputable coach will consider the Cowboys as long as Jones owns the team so I guess as a Cowboys fan we’re going to be stuck with Garrett for a few seasons until Jones fires him.
