Well, the tortured tenure of Wade Phillips as Cowboys Head Coach is finally over.

After one playoff victory and horribly inconsistent play spread out over three and-a-half seasons, Jerry Jones has moved on to interim head coach Jason Garrett.  Garrett was named head coach in waiting two years ago and he now gets 8 games to prove himself.

As someone who is not a Cowboys fan, I've always enjoyed the comedic aspect of Phillips' tenure with Dallas.  The wasted timeouts and challenges, bad losses, and man-about-town Tony Romo have shown the Cowboys don't have what it takes to be an elite team.

As I was listening to Jerry Jones' Press Conference here on 1340 The Fan, I said to Ryan Hyatt that Jerry sounds like he is in denial.  Sounds like he doesn't understand that his "efforts" as General Manager hinder his team- not help.  I think of the parallels between the 1980s Yankees and the 2000s & 2010s Dallas Cowboys.  Of course the only thing that helped the Yankees was the suspension of George Steinbrenner and the hiring of competent general managers and personnel directors.

It's a shame that Wade Phillips final NFL head coaching job ended so badly, but it appears that is the destiny of all of Jerry's head coaches.
