    With all the talent on the Cowboys roster someone needs to bring them together as a team. And Wade Phillips simply wasn't doing the job.

    I knew he was history when he couldn't use a challenge last night because he had used up all his timeouts before the 2 minute warning.

    Stoooopid.

    The season is lost. They have a good roster. With Wade as coach, they might have gone 3-13 and gotten a high draft pick. Now, maybe they finish 6-10 and not as high of a draft pick.

    Of course, the players had totally quit on him, so its a pretty easy decision!

    they will be lucky to win two more games. Washington is the only win I see. For one thing, why would they even bring Romo back this season?

    Jason Garret?

    The guy in charge of the anemic offense is now in charge of the whole team?

    Jones really should have tried to get Gruden.

    But I'm not complaining, my Eagles don't match up against the better teams in the NFL right now, so this Cowboys season is my super bowl.

    I don't know if I buy the "quit on him" thing.

    They're also quitting on Jones in that case, which is like quitting on Steinbrenner. You just don't (didn't) do it.

    In sports, when things aren't going well, a coach ALWAYS takes the fall, because that's just how it works.

    Sometimes it's the coach's fault. But sometimes, the team just ISN'T GOOD.

    Winning only 1 game so far can't just be the coach's fault. Maybe, just maybe, this team sucks.

    I beg your pardon... Washington beat Dallas earlier this year and they will do it again. Even Washington isn't playing as crapy as Dallas.
