Wade Phillips has just received another vote of confidence from Jerry Jones.
I myself have my doubts; I guess I am old school I believe you need discipline to win a Super Bowl. I am like a lot of others I have great respect for his defensive coaching abilities.
So let’s take a look at Phillips history.
Wade Phillips the head coach for the Dallas Cowboys. He is also a former head coach of the New Orleans Saints, where his record was 1-3, the Denver Broncos, where his record was 16-17, the Buffalo Bills, where he was 29-21 and led the Bills to the playoffs in two of three seasons, and the Atlanta Falcons where he posted a 2-1 mark. His career winning percentage as a head coach is .596. Phillips has won 22 games over the last two years as the Head Coach in Dallas.
It should be known that Dallas is the only team where Phillips was originally hired as the Head Coach. All the other places he was the Head Coach, he was made the in-term Coach after someone else left.
It should also be known that in each of those case’s Phillips had top 5 Defense’s.
Head coaching record:
- New Orleans Saints – 1 WIN 3 LOSES .250 record
- Denver Broncos – 16 wins 16 loses .500 record
- Buffalo Bills – 29 wins 19 loses .604 record
- Atlanta Falcons – 2 wins 1 lose .666 record
- Dallas Cowboys – 22 wins 10 loses .688 record
- Total – 70 wins 49 loses .588 record
Know this my friend, no one can dispute his defensive abilities. And in my mind as for the X’s and O’s he is one hell of a Coach. However the doubt I have is, will the lack of Discipline prevent him from leading the Dallas Cowboys to the Super Bowl?
