Brian Stewart Is Not Calling The Defense

Cowboys head coach Wade Phillips would not deny defensive coordinator Brian Stewart will not call the plays this Sunday against the Bucs.

“I’d say more active, yes,” Phillips said. “I’ve been with the defense, but I’m going to concentrate more, I guess you’d say.”

Stewart’s demise was reported by ESPN.com’s Matt Mosley.

This team has some cracks and if they don’t find a way to win Sunday the house may fall in on everyone.

Tony Romo Won’t Play Sunday

Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo will sit out another game with his broken pinkie. 

Romo said this at Terrell Owens radio show Tuesday at the House of Blues in Dallas.

More DFW Media Want Wade Fired

Tim Cowlishaw of the Morning News said Cowboys head coach Wade Phillips needed to be fired.

Today, Jen Engel of the Star-Telegram writes Wade must go.

Jen says Jerry needs to give the job to Jason Garrett. WRONG. 

 Right now Jason Garrett can’t run the offense.  So, I don’t think he is qualified to run the team right now.

Wade Phillips Is On The Hot Seat Now

The Cowboys 20 point loss in St. Louis means one thing: head coach Wade Phillips is on the hot seat now.

Coach Cupcake has to stop giving the Boys milk and cookies for losing to bad teams.

Wade knew coming into the season he had to win.  He had to make the playoffs and win at least two games or Jerry Jones was going to look for another man to lead his team.

The seat is hot because if the Cowboys don’t start playing with some purpose and with fire they may not make the playoffs.  Forget winning the NFC East, just getting wild card sounds nice right now.

Phillips said he was known as Mr. Fix It, well the Cowboys are broken and he has 9 games to get the team right or he will be find a pink slip under his door.

Jones has to fill a new stadium next year.  He will not be able to sell the PSL’s he wants if Phillips can’t get this team to the playoffs and win.  This mess is Jerry’s creation, but he won’t fire himself.

Wade better start on Sunday by beating Tampa at Texas Stadium.

Tim Cowlishaw of the Morning News wants Wade fired NOW.

Jerry Jones Fires The Babysitters

Since the NFL suspended Pacman, Cowboys owner Jerry Jones decided to fire the 4-man security/babysitting team he had in place for Pacman Jones.

Pacman is free to roam the streets of Dallas all he wants.   Sorry, I don’t see him cleaning up his act.  I think he’s played his last game for the Dallas Cowboys.

Cowboys Sign Punter

Morning News beat man Todd Archer reports the Cowboys have signed punter Sam Paulescu and placed Mat McBriar on injured reserved, ending his season.

NBC Sports Is Hard On The Cowboys

You can always count on NBC Sports columnists to come down hard on the Cowboys.

Tom Curran has been a longtime critic of head coach Wade Phillips.  He hates the trade of Roy Williams.  Curran is slamming the Cowboys for not suspending Pacman Jones too.

Now Steve Silverman of MSNBC.com chops up the Cowboys.  cbsportsline.com is dicing up Jerry Jones.

Brad Johnson Just Got A Lot Better

Brad Johnson now has Roy Williams and Terrell Owens to throw to.  Patrick Crayton will get some single coverage and Jason Witten will also get a bunch of single coverage as well.

Johnson is 40, but these weapons will make him feel young again this Sunday in St. Louis.

What about T.O.?  Matt Mosley of ESPN.com writes Mr. Owens is happy about the trade of Williams.
