NFL  > Dallas Cowboys  > NFL Week 9 ... What else can be said?

Cowboys at Green Bay

---

A total embarrassment tonight. I posted here in Week 2 that a leadership change was needed (NFL > Dallas Cowboys > Time for a leadership change) and it needs to be done now versus the end of the season. The team is emotionally done and there is nothing be saved by keeping Phillips until the end of the season. Better to give someone hungry a chance to give a spark and maybe even some discipline that is badly needed.

If anyone from the Cowboys organization even reads these forums, it's time to start cleaning the mess. Get rid of Phillips and maybe even Garrett.

I think there's a lot of people thinking that as well. Wade should be toast, as well as Garrett. Why keep them on and just make things worse, although I don't know how they could get worse, other than a slew of injuries. Jones would have to have an interim coach from within, and the only one who has HC experience (that I know of anyway) is Dave Campo. He was consistent during his 3 years anyway.......won 5 games per year all 3 years. He lost 11 each year, but hey, he was consistent in that......lol.....But, Wade and Garrett need to go......and soon.

The bottom line is that Wade's defense is waaaaaay to predictable now and teams KNOW they can throw on us at will.

Add in the fact that Kitna looks flat out terrible and the entire team has just given up.

Jerry needs to roll some heads this week and I actually think he might do so.

The talent is not matching the schemes and coaching we have.

In the end, we need new people calling the shots from the sidelines.

I can care less WHO it is, just as long as it is someone other than Wade. Even he has given up....you can hear it in his voice.

Dallas needs a coaching spark this week, then another will come in 3-4 more weeks when Tony comes back.

It wont save the season, but it might give the team a blueprint for what NOT to do next season.

Based on what I saw last night firing Wade at this stage will not help or hurt the team. The players seem to have lost their will to compete. That's somethime a coach cannot give them. Buffalo has not won a game but they are fighting and giving their opponents a battle. I think it's time to put in the subs and send a message to the starters that their jobs are not secure and they need to start playing from start to finish. Wade will be gone. A short list for a replacement should be made by the General Manager before he fires himself.

Go take a look at Peter King's MMQB on how the Colt McCoy and the Browns are finding innovative ways to win...key word innovative. As stated above Dallas and it's Silver Haired COaching staff are too predictable.

I have to agree, in this day and age in the NFL basic only carries so far. Coaches as well as the players have to routinely switch things up so as not to develop tendencies, it's entirely to easy to game plan for a team when it's predictable. The tough part is deciphering exactly were the fault lies when accessing the players execution versus the coaches game plan and it's complexity or simplicity, for if the players are not executing a simple scheme correctly how can we as fans expect the coaches to implement a more complex scheme.

Charles,
I recently read Blood Sweat and Chalk (from CNNSI Writer) and it points out how good coaches coach the talent they have and modify their schemes accordingly.

Well, I think Wade and his staff are doing neither. They are not putting the players in a position to win based on what skills they have.

I hear you LOUD and CLEAR on how can they put in a complex scheme when the most basic schemes are not followed.

It has become predictable because they can't play zone. Well, they can't play man to man either, but they have to stay in it. In addition Jerry Jones needs to cut some players and start from scratch due to players that don't play all out.
