Out With the Old, In With the... Old.


Okay, so Wade Phillips is THE guy. Or the puppet guy, depending on which side of the Jerry Jones fence you reside. The piece de resistance that pushed him over Dallas hometown favorite Norv Turner was supposedly his ability with the 3-4 defensive scheme instituted by Bill Parcells.

He also said he wants to work with DeMarcus Ware, and mold Dallas's fearsome linebacker into a O-line disrupting machine. Many have pointed to the play of Shawne Merriman of San Diego as proof of Phillips' coaching ability.

Both Merriman and Ware have two years in the NFL under their belts now - with virtually the same stats. If Phillips is coming to work his Merriman magic on Ware, DeMarcus might actually regress. Why is Phillips the supposed defensive savior?

However, the best part of Jerry's new hire might be the new face in Cowboys camp, Wade's daughter Tracy Phillips- a model, dancer, and music video girl extraordinaire.

Here she is in the new My Chemical Romance video. (Hint: She's Helena - the dancing dead chick at the end.)

I don't know that Texas-boy Phillips with decades of NFL coaching experience will be a puppet and I like his much more aggressive brand of 3-4.

But this hire doesn't knock me dead. If you look at his career numbers, modest number of gamew over .500 with no playoff victories, it mirrors Parcells' Dallas years. That's the concern.
