Wade Phillips coming back for two years

Not only is Wade Phillips coming back to coach the Cowboys next year, but he's been given a new contract that will keep him on the job for 2011 as well. Some are questioning the move, but I like it. I explain why in the "comments" below. What are your thoughts?

NFL playoffs: Vikings - 34, Cowboys - 3

The Vikings crushed the Cowboys on Sunday in Minnesota in the second round of the NFL playoffs, ending the season and what was a great month of football in Dallas. The Cowboys offensive line folded, Romo was in trouble all day and was sacked six times, they turned over the ball and the Cowboys came away with no points from several early drives that should have resulted in points. If there is any consolation, some people on ESPN last night compared this team to the 1991 Cowboys. That team also went 11-5 and got killed in the playoffs, but came back to win three Super Bowls. This team is not THAT good, but by cleaning up the locker room, winning the division, discovering that Romo can be a leader and Phillips can win a playoff game, and with the emergence of Miles Austin, they seem to be on the right track. Looking forward to the 2010 season.

Week 17: Cowboys-24, Eagles - 0

The Cowboys kicked the hell out of the Eagles today at Cowboys Stadium, 24-0, to win the NFC East title. It was the first time in team history the defense has put up two shutouts in a row and Romo became the first quarterback in Dallas history to take every single snap of an entire season. Running game looked good, as did the passing game. Next week, we tango with Philly again in the first round of the playoffs. Nothing at all negative about this win, though I think Romo should have been pulled in the fourth quarter rather than go for a pretty meaningless team record. Other than that, a perfect day.
Congratulations to the 2009 Cowboys!
