They're fundamentally broken. The Dallas Cowboys of 2010 have plunged to the depths of the NFL; the absolute beatdown they took from the Green Bay Packers to the tune of 45-7 should be enough to wake up Jerry Jones. Something has to be done. If the most die-hard of Cowboys fans, and I count myself as one, no longer want to watch the games, then you have a serious problem. I don't even care who you replace Wade Phillips with, you could name Dave Campo coach on Monday morning and I'd be okay with it. Seriously.
The New York Giants game was the game that officially killed us, now we're just watching a decaying corpse. It's an old cliché; you can't fire the whole team so you fire the coach. Well, there is truth in that statement. The blame can be spread far and wide for this performance, but Jerry Jones isn't firing himself, so Wade is the guy who has to go. The point is, whatever you choose to do if you fire Wade, whoever you put in charge, it just doesn't matter. This team is disintegrating; just give us a reason to watch them again. You can't keep foisting back-to-back blowouts on us where the Dallas Cowboys look like a jayvee team masquerading as NFL players.
Maybe we're overreacting, maybe we're spoiled. There are plenty of teams that have been this bad for much longer than what we're experiencing. So if you want to call us out on that, feel free to do it, you'd be right. But that also doesn't change how most of us are feeling right now, and that is there's no reason for Wade to continue coaching this team.
Chronicling the mistakes and bad play of the actual game tonight is like telling someone how earthquakes occur when one just destroyed their house. Does it really matter? Probably not. The Green Bay Packers toyed with the Cowboys. The Jacksonville Jaguars did the same a week ago. They didn't just beat the Cowboys, they humiliated them.
1-7. The 2010 Dallas Cowboys have imploded. Let Wade off the hook. He's a dead man walking, put him out of his misery.
