Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones extended the contract of head coach Wade Phillips to 2011, adding an additional year to what was supposed to be a one-year extension.
Phillips coached the team to its first playoff win since 1996 and had a winning record in December for the first time since 1996. But the team’s exit from the playoffs was as ugly as it could be, a 34-3 defeat at the hands of the Minnesota Vikings.
Personally, I think the Dallas Cowboys have the talent now to win the Super Bowl and it is disappointing to see them lose so badly in the playoffs. I am not sure a two-year extension was the best idea, but the players seemed to really want him back. If the players want him back, then I’ll accept their wishes over mine.
Let’s hope the Cowboys can make history in 2010-11 and be the first team to host a Super Bowl in their own stadium. Imagine the feeling. I won’t stop thinking about it until the 2010 season starts.
