Dallas Cowboys Face Tough Schedule Ahead: Will Wade Phillips Be Coach In 2010?

So far in the Wade Phillips era the Dallas Cowboys have yet to win a playoff game.  Though this may not be his fault he is frequently jabbed at by comments by Jerry Jones and the media.

Currently the Cowboys are 8-4 and atop the NFC East along with the Eagles but in the near future the Cowboys will be playing against some very tough teams.

First off today the Cowboys will be facing the San Diego Chargers.  The Chargers are currently 9-3 and arguably the second best team in the AFC behind the Colts along with the Bengals.

Antonio Gates and Phillip Rivers have had amazing seasons for the Chargers this year while LaDainian Tomlinson has had one of his worst years of his NFL career.  I don't know who will win this game but I definitely believe this will be a great game.

Then comes the undefeated New Orleans Saints on December 19.  The Saints have already been rewarded with the NFC South.

The Saints are an unbelievable team, the team is great at defense, Darren Sharper while Drew Brees has had an MVP season and has become the toast of New Orleans.  The Cowboys may got lucky in this game though and may be playing against the Saints' backups since they have already won the division and are in the playoffs.

The comes most likely the easiest game remaining on the Cowboys' schedule a game against the Redskins on December 27.  The Redskins are currently last in the NFC East.  The Redskins may also be looking for a new coach this off season just as the Cowboys may be.

The Redskins have had leads into the fourth quarter the past three weeks yet they have lost all three of those games.

Last comes the Eagles on January 3.  The Eagles are currently tied with Cowboys atop the NFC East.  The Eagles are facing the Giants this week in a game I expect to be great.

The Eagles have played well on both sides of the ball including Donovan McNabb being healthy for most of the season.

With all these difficult games it will be interesting to see if the Cowboys can get in the playoffs.  If they don't, expect to see a new coach in Dallas next year.
