Wade Phillips has been in a bad place for the last few years. His job has been in jeopardy since the day he took it.
Dallas Cowboys' owner Jerry Jones, and the fans, expect greatness from this team and, apparently so do former players and coaches. Even they have been critical of this 1-6 team that has stunk up the field all season long.
But what were the most crucial mistakes that Wade Phillips made that will eventually cost him his job?
There's belief among a lot of NFL people that Jones won't fire Phillips before this season is out because of the collective bargaining agreement that may send the players out on strike after the 2010 season.
But there are also more people that believe that they should fire Wade and allow Jason Garrett to take over the team for at least the rest of the season. It's not like it can get any worse at this point.
