A Quick Note to Coach Wade Phillips
Thank you. I know you aren’t the most popular guy in Dallas right now, but know that a lot of fans appreciate everything you did during your time in Dallas. We appreciate the 34-20 record, the first division title and playoff win in years, and, of course, beating the Eagles three times last season.
You aren’t a poor coach–just not the right coach for this Cowboys team right now. Media have criticized you for being too soft on the players, but realize that there are those of us out there that respect your style and appreciate that you always protected the players. You took the blame, and the players loved you for that.
It’s easy to kick someone when they’re down, but it takes a true fan–a loyal fan– to support their coach when things don’t go as planned. As far as I’m concerned, you’ve earned your place as an official part of the Dallas Cowboys family.
The media calls you “Wade,” but you’ll always be “Coach Phillips” to me.
Good luck Coach.
