View Full Version : Wade Tossed for Cowher?

Though there's currently a love-fest happening between Cowboys players and their new coach Wade Phillips, there also is persistent talk in league circles that Phillips might not last long in the job.

There's a strong belief in some quarters that, if the Cowboys falter in 2007, Phillips will get the heave-ho -- and owner Jerry Jones will then pursue former Steelers coach Bill Cowher.

Whether Cowher and Jones can coexist is a legitimate question, however. Jones presumably has had his fill of hard-headed coaches, with Bill Parcells more recently and Jimmy Johnson a decade ago. But, in the end, Jones wants to win, and Cowher has shown that, despite regular roster changes in Pittsburgh, he can always get his teams ready to compete.

We're also hearing that Jones doesn't care much for the recent sound bites regarding Phillips' reputation for being a "players' coach." The thinking is that being a "players' coach" caused Wade to fail in two prior head-coaching stints, and we're hearing that Jones would prefer that Phillips be a little tougher on the Cowboys than he has been in past NFL stops.

Seeing Cowher as a Cowboy coach is almost as bad as seeing him as a Browns coach! Jones will have to wait 2 years anyways because Cowher is sure he isn't coaching until his daughter is done with school... so don't hold your breath hoping to snag Cowher!

If Jerry Jones thinks BC isn't a hard headed coach, he's got another thing coming !

That is where this came from. On one hand, Jones has the money to pay Cowher what he wants, However, I do not see Jones and Cowher working well together at all. Both are two strong willed. But money does strange things to people.

This is false rumor. Cowher specifically said on ESPN and the NFL Network that he plans to be on television with his new gig at the NFL Today for a few years. I think he has a three year contract with CBS for the NFL Today (I could be wrong). I rarely believe that Cowher would ever be a coach of the Dallas Cowboys. Absolutely false.

i hope he goes to the cowboys and chokes with them as he did with us more often then not

Cowher as coach of the cowboys, sounds like a nightmare to me, someone please wake me up. However you can rest assured that if Cowher ended up in Dallas, T.O. would not be there long
