05:42 AM ET 10.22 | Patrick Crayton no longer reports to work at Valley Ranch, but he can still create some waves around these parts by opening his mouth. Crayton, the veteran receiver who was traded to the Chargers for a late-round draft pick just before final cuts, was pretty frank this week when asked about Wade Phillips. "Wade is very, very laid back to where you'd want him to tighten up on some of the young guys and he wouldn't," Crayton said during an appearance on 1090 AM in San Diego. "And just when you think he is, he backs off and wouldn't say anything." Crayton also confirmed that Phillips had "nothing to do with the offense in Dallas," saying he was just a defensive coach. That doesn't exactly paint a portrait of a head coach with complete authority.

"Ex-Cowboy". Singular? Taking a wild guess, I'll bet there are more.

Skins + 13 over the Bears.

Cowboys show up and win a close one this weekend....

They want to keep Wade his job, so they can still have slumber parties on Fridays.

Shocker!

I know, what they don't want to tell you....

Nothing new here to see people...let's move on. <yawn>

And in a related story, when Crayton left the radio station, he was arrested and charged with impersonating Tiki Barber.

Wade's afraid of his players.

Comparing Coughlin with Phillips just shows you used a very bad comparison.

Agreed! Giants 30, Cowboys 17.

You can't give the keys to the Porche, to the guy from "Driving Ms. Daisy."

Sounds like Patrick is a bit bitter.

October 22, 2010  08:05 AM ET

Watching Jerry this year will be priceless!

Notice the more he steams, the more wrinkled his face gets? Maybe he should head on over to One Hour Martinizing.

Why? He should be happy to be on a 2-and-4 team. Beats being on a 1-and-4 team, anyway.

October 22, 2010  08:11 AM ET

yeah, Patrick and how laidback is your new coach, Snorve Turner? Snorve makes Wade look downright energetic...
