The Dallas Cowboys, who is currently running with the miserable score of 1-7, lost five consecutive games and outscored 121-59 the last three games in this season. This has apparently disappointed Jerry Jones, who refused to assure the media that Wade Phillips would continue to remain the coach for the rest of the season. This is for the first time that Jerry Jones took such a drastic decision of coach replacement mid-season. The owner of the team said that is certainly a big set back for the team and they have to suffer consequences for this. He recalled the team’s standard of performances in the last few seasons which automatically enhances his expectation from the team. Last season, his team was overwhelming with a score of 11-5, and this time a 1-7 start is certainly indigestible. He blames the poor performance of the offensive line and the running attack, which was miserably reduced to only 2.8 yards per carry. He also noticed the growing number of big plays that has been allowed, too many missed tackles backed by utter intercommunication within the team.

This showed the incompetency on the part of the coach to sustain the standard of Dallas Cowboys. He avoided the question of whether Wade Phillips would be fired from the team or not, but certainly said that something need to be done. He would conduct an elaborate discussion with the team today, although he did not reveal what would the discussion be center around.
