This has been rumored before, but now it just seems like perfect timing, almost fate.
This season is absolutely lost. These last eight games mean absolutely nothing except to see what your young guys can do, which is probably nothing aside from Dez Bryant and we already knew his beastliness.
This blog entry posted by our friends at the D Magazine suggests Jones should fire Wade Phillips and offensive coordinator Jason Garrett and coach the remainder of the season himself.
This. Would. Be. Awesome.
This team has obviously quit on Phillips. It did some time ago, and last night was the crater below where the Cowboys hit rock bottom with their embarrassing loss to Jacksonville two weeks ago.
Like Tim Rogers said in the post, no one will actually relish the opportunity to coach this team for the rest of the season. And we already knew Jerry Jones wasn't going to bring someone in from the outside in midseason. And with the chance of an NFL lockout next year, he's not expected to go get one of the high profile coaches such as Bill Cowher or Jon Gruden.
I'll tell you, I don't think Cowher wants to coach in Dallas. Gruden might, but I'd doubt it.
Just picture this: Jerry Jones, on the sideline with a headset on Sunday at New Meadowlands Stadium, and the Cowboys miraculously rally around their do-it-all owner and beat the best team in the NFC on its home field.
Owner/GM/Head Coach/Entourage star/Boxing promoter Jerry Jones.
Do it, Jerry. It'll make me interested again. God knows you need that.
