Jerry Jones to meet with coaching staff Monday

UPDATE 10:28 a.m. ET: The Cowboys have called a press conference for 4:00 p.m. CT today. (Cue up Beethoven’s Fifth Symphony – da da da doom)

UPDATE 11:25 a.m. ET: According to ESPN, as of 9:00 a.m. CT, Wade Phillips was not at the Cowboys’ Valley Ranch facility. Normally, the Cowboys coaches and Jerry Jones meet on Monday mornings to watch game film.


Albert Breer of the NFL Network reports that Jerry Jones will meet with the Cowboys coaching staff Monday afternoon. No need to add any analysis…everyone’s imagination is doing the work right now.

After Sunday night’s embarrassing loss at Green Bay, Jones had this to say:

"There are a lot of people here who are certainly going to suffer and suffer consequences. I'm talking about within the team -- players, coaches who have got careers. This is certainly a setback. I know firsthand what it is to have high expectations. I think unquestionably that our expectations were thinking we're something we were not, possibly looking at what might be relative to a Super Bowl. All of those things have certainly contributed early.

"But we have so many things that we need to correct and address, as this game so vividly exposed and previous games have. I've got a lot of work to do, got a lot of decisions to make. And it's not just one, two, three or four. There are several decisions. I think everybody in this country would agree that there's a lot wrong with this team that we've got to address, and I'm certainly the one to address it."

If the Cowboys fire Wade Phillips at this point, they'd be in a bit of a bind given the timing and current state of the Collective Bargaining Agreement. But, of course, being 1-7 carries a natural bind anyway.

In defense of Wade, did he blow the blocking assignment that crushed Tony Romo?? --- no but he evaluated the talent of the guy he put in and felt he would get the job done ---WRONG


Does Wade continue to commit retarded penalties game after game?? --- no but does his team improve? and isnt a disciplined team a sign of good coaching and vice versa?

Tired about hearing about the whining cowgirls--only thing good about  them are the cheerleaders----Bill Cowher would come in there and straighten things out and install some Pittsburgh Steeler mentality, making these pu**ys into men dirty no talent cheapshot artists!!!!

I do not want Cowher in Dallas I want him in Houston. I think we both know he will more than likely replace John Fox.

"Dallas is the NY Yankees, with a salary cap. They have a great core of talent, just need someone else to get in there and move the pieces around the board."
this is why a.) everyone else dislikes cowboy fans and b.) this version of the 'boys will continue to suck. i have said this for the last 3 years - the 'boys DO NOT have a "great core of talent". what they have is an overrated group of players and what we are seeing now is exactly what these players are, nothing, mediocre at best.

Now my own thoughts. As I stated, I'm not a big Dallas Cowboys "homer", I actually grew up a Houston Oilers fan while everyone else loved the 'Boys. But what exactly does firing Wade Phillips do for them this year?? I really don't think Jason Garrett is the answer -- at all -- but do you really want to evaluate him under these circumstances?? Does that really show anyone what you're getting in an NFL coach??

In defense of Wade, did he blow the blocking assignment that crushed Tony Romo?? Does Wade continue to commit retarded penalties game after game?? I mean, these are grown men who have played football for quite some time, is it really an NFL coach's responsibility to teach Pop Warner fundamentals again??

And, why should Roy Williams be labeled "an idiot" for stating it's not impossible to go 9-0 the rest of the year. At least he's demonstrating some sort of pride, albeit completely unrealistic. Are they "really" embarrassed?? Uh, no. Most of these guys could care less. I saw a shot of Demarcus Ware after the game yesterday hamming it up with a Green Bay Packers player, laughing and carrying on as if it was just another day at the office. Pride is being furious you just had your butt kicked, and embarrassment would be showing that emotion and carrying yourself as a team leader.

2 people being ragged on pretty hard - Jerry Jones and Wade Phillips - what kind of emotion did they display after the game??

Since the actual players won't do it, maybe the fans and media should take a long hard look in the mirror for the players, and see who's really at fault for such a waste of talent. ESPN The Magazine had a good article recently titled "When a coach's scheme works, credit his players, not his playbook". Same thing should hold true when it doesn't.

BTW, news has already got out around here, Wade is gone. Sad really.
