Jones reconsidering decision to keep Phillips

Week after week, the Cowboys continue to find a way to lose and while there’s been plenty of mixed signals from team owner Jerry Jones as of late, their latest showing may finally bring an end to the mountain of speculation surrounding head coach Wade Phillips’ future with the team.

According to Jean Jacques Taylor of the Dallas Morning News, Jones is currently mulling over whether to remove Phillips from his position and seems to have resigned himself to making a move in spite of his noted reticence to fire his head coach in the middle of the year.

“I don’t think there is anybody in the world who would doubt that I’m willing to do something hard,” Jerry said. “I’m willing to do something that doesn’t feel good to me.”

Phillips did little to dissuade his detractors following the game, taking much of the blame for the Cowboys disastrous play this year upon himself. That, combined with the lackluster effort given by his defense today,will likely be his undoing, and while Jones may end up waiting another week to pull the plug, Phillips tenure in Dallas is over for all intents and purposes.

Whether his dismissal will motivate the Cowboys to play up to their talent level throughout the remainder of the year is yet to be seen, but there is no question that something has to change in the near future.
