http://nfl-facts-and-rumors.blogs.cbssports.com/mcc/blogs/view/22475988Well, there you go. I'm not sure he could run a 4-3 but the man is a DC. I think we could switch to 3-4 with most of our current roster but need a true nose tackle. He can not be worse than what we are getting from Frank Bush.

Hello new DC

If somebody else owned this team, then "Yes" you would probably be right.

However, I think you need to understand that we're talking about BOB MCNAIR here.

Go back to sleep and dream up a new head coach, too, because these sorts of things only happen in our sleep. Not in real life.

I imagine someone like Kollar will be promoted to new DC. Or maybe they decide to let David Gibbs do it. Or maybe the boy who runs out and grabs the kickoff tee.

So many unqualified people are just waiting to get that job. No need in getting all crazy about Wade Phillips.

Well I've already turned the opponent's locker room into a laboratory.... my first project will be powerful magnets embedded into the players' knees, which when reacted by a powerful magnetic system underneath the playing field, will prevent a player's knees from ever hitting the ground, which will prevent dead plays.

After that I'll be working on spiked helmets, which when activated by the presence of a defender about to make an illegal hit, will stab through the defender's helmet, killing him instantly.

Then I'll start cloning Mario, Cushing, Ryans, Asmougha, and Ed Reed, although this process could take some time.

Bush doesn't order off a menu in his hand with pictures and descriptions like Gary has. Bush looks at a menu up on a wall in the booth and tells Cushing what number he wants him to run.

He also tells him whether or not to super-size it.

I wouldn't exactly be clamoring for Wade as DC. His baby has been getting their asses handed to them and multiple sources and players for opposing teams have said that his blitzes and schemes are so simple that the offenses know what is coming. His "fixes" seem to be temporary.

Wade has a very good reputation as a DC so I'm not sure what happened in Dallas. Theyv'e been mugged a couple of times this year by other teams in huge blowout losses. 45-7 to the Packers is just nuts.

Capers was a respected defensive mind who coached a team with a lousy defense here in Houston. Now he's back to wreaking havoc as a DC. I would expect Wade to do the same thing.

It's time to hire a proven DC

Their head coach I'd be interested in talking to. He's always coached solid, respectable defenses. As a head coach Wade isn't the answer for anybody but he's been a very good defensive coordinator over the years.

The sweepstakes are now on to see who will replace Wade Phillips as the head coach of the Dallas Cowboys. Even though this team and this job have their obvious drawbacks, this is still one of the top franchises in professional sports, not to mention professional football.

So, who will take over as head coach in Dallas?

During the Green Bay-Dallas game on TV last night, one of the announcers observed what a magnificent job that Dom Capers had been doing as the defensive coordinator for the Packers. Clearly, Capers is well familiar with the 3-4, so hiring him as the head coach of the Cowboys would not require any sort of adjustment of personnel on that front.

Naturally, Jerry Jones can be expected to interview a number of candidates before making a decision. However, Dom Capers might not be such a terrible guy for Jerry to speak with. He has had a mixed record around the league as a head coach, including some successes and some failures. But who hasn't? Are there any bulletproof perfect no-miss candidates for head coach of an NFL team on the market right now? Not that I am aware of.

There are many co-ordinators in the NFL who make ABYSMAL head coaches. As a defensive co-ordinator Wade wasn't half bad. the one he built in SanDiego when he was there were some bad muff-huggas.

We can make fun of the Cowboys all we want, but if our players don't get their collective asses in gear and start playing for a coach that they claim to love, we will be in the same mode at the end of the season that Dallas is now: Rebuilding.

Doubtful that will happen. Wade Phillips does NOT belong to the "good old boys" club that Kubiak and Daddy Bob likes to hire from. It's called FRIENDS! I don't think Kubiak and Wade are that friendly, but, from what I've read, BUM is good friends with Kubes, so who knows. Crapshoot regardless!! Anyway, don't look for Bush to get the ax. Kubes wanted him BAD, and got what he wanted, someone just like him.

Oh no, they quit on him. His players always quit on him when he's given the head coaching reins. Wade is not head coach material. He is however a very good defense coordinator. There's a reason why he's been given a shot to be the top man over and over again. It's because after he gets fired he goes back to what he does best which is build a tough defense. After a few years he finds himself in a position being offered another head coaching gig.

Can't say I was suprised but the fact that Jerry Jones said his team had so many problems he didn't have enough fingers to point at em' struck me...I see the Cowboys as dumping useless players/coaches and starting over.

Maybe Tony Romo gets replaced by Andrew Luck if he declares, second coming of Troy Aikman anyone?

Exactly Herv. Wade is a good guy as DC. Hell, while people are trying to pile on Wade Phillips, at least this man has made it to the post season and even had the best record in the entire NFC his first year there. As sad as it sounds Wade Phillips would be a step above Stupiak as a HC even. Lol!! :mariopalm:

Compare Wade's last few years to Gary's last four and you've got two post season appearences to a big fat zero of Gary's and we'd be comparing Wade's 2 post seasons out of 3 seasons to Gary's 4 seasons of no playoffs.

Wade wouldn't be a bad guy to take over a defense at all. That's what he does. He's a good DC. He's just to weak to be a great HC just like Gary is who should be an OC and not a HC.

I don't believe Wade will ever get another HC job (unless it's as an interim), and I don't believe he will have any difficulty finding a new DC gig for next season.

Let me ask you - if you were Wade Phillips and Bob McNair asked to to be involved with this defense in any sort of role whatsoever, and your choices were:

1. Take some time off, recoup, and enjoy a little down time while waiting until there's more than one team in the market for a new DC, and then pick the job that you like best based on money, chances for success, and whatever else may be important to you.
OR
2. Become associated with the lowest ranked defense in the NFL.

What would you do? (Oh yeah, and you get paid exactly the same amount regardless of which option you chose)

Yeah, McNair is unlikely to do it, but even if he did, why in H-E-Double Hockey sticks would Wade choose to step into this situation during the season?

Right, I think it won't happen now or in the middle of the season. For all we know Kubiak could be going down with his ship after this season. For Wade it is better to wait after the season.

The only scenario I can see Wade coming here is if this defensive performance continues and yet the Texans sneak into the playoffs. that most likely means Kubes stays around and if that does happen, hopefully Wade can come here and take over as the DC. I must say I feel confident of the coaching duo of Kubiak and Wade, maybe together they could be something special.

After all the Offense usually plays pretty well but often just has to score TOO many points and the Defense gives up way too many big plays for even our offense to keep up.

From the Star-Telegram:


Paul Pasqualoni is the new DC

In a move that came as no surprise, Jerry Jones tabbed defensive line coach Paul Pasqualoni to run the defense. Pasqualoni has been a defensive coordinator in the 3-4. He is the only assistant on the staff with that experience. Dave Campo was the Cowboys defensive coordinator from 1995-99, before becoming the team's head coach, but that was in a 4-3 scheme.
