What about Wade?

Well, everyone thought Wade’s future in Dallas was cemented with a solid December and a playoff victory over division rival Philadelphia.  But by completely dismantling the Cowboys,  the Vikings may have put Phillip’s future in jeopardy… again…

Even though Brett and the Vikes completely torched the pokes, they may have exposed the Eagles more than they exposed Dallas.

While the DFW folks were getting all spun up about how this team was different because they had pummeled the vaunted Eagles twice in a row and for a third time in the 2009 season, no one was going back and looking at the facts:

The only team that Philadelphia beat this season that had a winning record was the Atlanta Falcons, and that came in a game in which the Dirty Birds were without their starting quarterback, Matt Ryan.  Even though the Falcons were able to finish with a record of 9-7, which marked the first time the franchise had ever strung together back-to-back winning seasons, they failed to make the playoffs.

Point is, maybe the boys weren’t quite as good as we thought, and maybe Wade is in more trouble than we thought.

Many said that Bum’s kid needed to win at least one playoff game, and needed to be competitive in each game.  Well I don’t think Jerry will consider 34-3 competitive…

Personally, I pull for Wade because I grew up watching his dad on NFL Films productions and I loved the fact that he was more than a coach; he was a persona.

Bum was bigger than the Astrodome and he was the Oilers and no one could confuse the cowboy hat wearing coach with anyone else.  His players loved him and he came across as a real human being.

That last sentence pretty well describes his son as well, but in this day and age, it just might cost Wade his job.

    Jerry just needs to hit the side-line, strap on the head-phone, call the OFF. plays, kick the ball into the net waiting for a field-goal chance, prance around in short-shorts waving pom-poms, and sell some peanuts & Buds to folks, standing, for the Cowboys to be a WINNER. Is that a persona?
    Love your thoughts, Pat.
