Wade Phillips Knows Talent

I was talking to the Cowboys head coach today after practice.  I told him how Emmitt Thomas thanked him in his Pro Football Hall Of Fame Induction speech.  Thomas coached with Wade in Atlanta.

Gary Zimmerman was inducted in the Hall of Fame as well.  The tackle finished his career as a Denver Bronco.  Wade told me he traded for him when he was the head coach in Denver.  Zimmerman played for the Minnesota Vikings before the trade.

I remember at Rod Smith’s retirement speech he thanked Wade for giving him a chance with the Broncos.   Smith was an undrafted free agent who became the most prolific receiver in Denver history.

Wade knows talent.
