Phillips not a head coach


Certain coaches in the NFL are excellent at one coaching position and are weak at others. Current Dallas Cowboys Head Coach Wade Phillips is one of them. As a Defensive Coordinator, Phillips shines. Elevate him as an NFL Head Coach and you are taking him away from his strengths and shining a spot light on his weaknesses.

Phillips has proven over the years that his teams are talented, but yet not disciplined. With every team Phillips has coached, his teams have consistently been known for having more than the average amount of penalties. Like former assistant coaches that became head coaches such as Ray Rhodes, Joe Bugel, and Mike Martz, Phillips is better off understanding his value and role and being someone's Defensive Coordinator where his Defense will continue to be one of the top Defenses in the NFL.

Phillips has had his chances as a Head Coach and with only one playoff win to show for all his chances, it is time to realize he's better off not being a Head Coach. Until Dallas Cowboys Owner Jerry Jones realizes this as well, the Cowboys will continue to fail to reach their potential.

You can't win with a QB that requires a lead to excel. Tony Romo showed his true colors when the Cowboys were down 7-3 and he looked totally deflated. The guy can't face adversary. The Cowboys need a new QB if they want to win a Superbowl. You can't expect the defense to get fired up when the offense gives up after being down 4 points.
