It’s been made fairly clear--between a very, very quiet offseason, a quiet trade deadline, and, from a personnel standpoint, anyway, a quiet regular season--that the Dallas Cowboys are set to ride this thing out with the folks who are already, and have been for some time, in town. For good or ill.
Cowboys players (and Wade Phillips, perhaps) may take some solace in this-- well, this, and the fact that former offensive lineman Nate Newton doesn’t run the team. Newton told ESPN Radio 103.3 FM recently that, if it were up to him, he’d clean house in Valley Ranch.
“Right now, I'd start getting rid of players,” Newton said, via the Dallas Morning News. “I would start firing the coaching staff and I would start getting rid of players. But that's not going to happen. So right now, you ride it out. Hope that there's one or two people in that locker room that do have fire, that do want to win some games.”
