UPDATE 10:28 a.m. ET: The Cowboys have called a press conference for 4:00 p.m. CT today. (Cue up Beethoven’s Fifth Symphony – da da da doom)
UPDATE 11:25 a.m. ET: According to ESPN, as of 9:00 a.m. CT, Wade Phillips was not at the Cowboys’ Valley Ranch facility. Normally, the Cowboys coaches and Jerry Jones meet on Monday mornings to watch game film.
Albert Breer of the NFL Network reports that Jerry Jones will meet with the Cowboys coaching staff Monday afternoon. No need to add any analysis…everyone’s imagination is doing the work right now.
After Sunday night’s embarrassing loss at Green Bay, Jones had this to say:
"There are a lot of people here who are certainly going to suffer and suffer consequences. I'm talking about within the team -- players, coaches who have got careers. This is certainly a setback. I know firsthand what it is to have high expectations. I think unquestionably that our expectations were thinking we're something we were not, possibly looking at what might be relative to a Super Bowl. All of those things have certainly contributed early.
"But we have so many things that we need to correct and address, as this game so vividly exposed and previous games have. I've got a lot of work to do, got a lot of decisions to make. And it's not just one, two, three or four. There are several decisions. I think everybody in this country would agree that there's a lot wrong with this team that we've got to address, and I'm certainly the one to address it."
If the Cowboys fire Wade Phillips at this point, they'd be in a bit of a bind given the timing and current state of the Collective Bargaining Agreement. But, of course, being 1-7 carries a natural bind anyway.
