The VRR: Wade Phillips Takes Over the Defense

BTB's own quincyyyyy asks the question Is Wade really a new man?, and gives us Bradie James' answer via the DMN blog.

"This is the most I've ever talked to Wade Phillips," [Bradie James] said. "For whatever reason, he sits in our meeting room and this is his defense. I've learned so much in the last couple of weeks, just dealing with him during minicamps and OTAs.

"I think I've gained a whole new appreciation for him and the scheme, because there's no middleman now. When you had a defensive coordinator, you had Brian Stewart, so you had to go through him and you don't know how Wade is feeling. You've just got to take him for his word. Now you don't have that. You go straight to the horse's mouth, and he makes the change right here on the field and it stays that way. There's no uncertainty."

Just to close out the DeMarcus Ware/Greg Ellis kerfuffle, JFE asked Ware directly about Ellis' wild claims.

"I didn’t do that," Ware said.

Drew Pearson on not being in the Ring of Honor:

"There's nothing you can do about it," Pearson said on ESPN 103.3. "My records speak to itself. I can't add to those numbers. I can't go out there and catch any more passes. It's there. If it's good enough, then I'll be up there. If it's not, then I won't, and apparently at this point, it's not."

Drew Pearson on his relationship with Jerry Jones:

"[Jerry] speaks to me," Pearson said, "but you know, with all due respect, he calls me Preston more than he calls me Drew."


Former Packers head coach and current Texas A&M coach Mike Sherman on Stephen McGee

But he does see certain traits and mannerisms "athletically and movement-wise" in McGee that remind [Sherman] just a little of Steve Young, who won a Super Bowl with pinpoint throwing accuracy but also kept defenses honest with his scrambling ability.
