Since last night's game, most Cowboy fans want Jerry to fire Coach Phillips and replace him with Jason Garrett whose playcalling is not very hot to say the least. There are a lot of players on this team who are not playing with any sense of urgency or heart. Everybody would like for Coach Phillips to be more of a disciplinarian or have Jerry Jones hire a coach who is. But the responsibility shouldn't fall all on Coach Phillips' shoulders.
This is the group that everybody should place more emphasis for the season's debacle. They are the highest paid players in the NFL and play with the least heart and character. The first thing that you hear from them is that the team has character and they will not give up. They can say what they want, but the evidence is in the scoreboard and in their lack luster play on the field. On Tuesdays, 3 Cowboys' players fly to El Paso to be in a radio show to comment on the state of the team. From one end of the state to the other which is about 8 hours wasted. These 8 hours should be spent either watching film, weightroom, or the training room or combination of all 3. Priorities? Lets not forget Jenkins imitation of a bullfighter getting out of the way when a bull comes right at him when he got out of the way when the Packers scored the 5th TD during 3rd quarter.
The Cowboys have the highest payroll in the NFL and a 1-7 record is what Jerry has gotten in return for his generosity. If Jerry Jones fires Coach Phillips and coaching staff, then it shouldn't end there. Jerry should also disassemble this team and start from scratch with some young players who have won a national chapionship and bring in some veterans who have been part of a Super Bowl winning team. So they can teach the players who never won anything on what it takes to win it all. In addition, Jerry should hire a new coach for next season even with the chance of a lockout looming due to collective bargaining agreement (cba). That way the new coach and his staff can get a head start on scouting the Cowboys and perspective rookies or veterans. Money should not be an issue for Jerry.
