Better Cowboys Head Coach: Wade Phillips or Jason Garrett?


Earlier this week, former Dallas Cowboys head coach Wade Phillips tweeted out this controversial stat to CowboysNation:

“Jason Garrett is tied with Wade Phillips for 56 games as the @dallascowboys head coach. Phillips: 34 – 22; Garrett: 29 -27. #suprisesMe”

Three hours later, Phillips tweeted out this explanation:

“My surprise was that Jason and I had coached the same number of games. Not the record – time passes quickly -I wish Jason & Cowboys well”

Regardless of his intentions, the comparison of the two back-to-back coaches was inevitable. Although it can be argued that Phillips’ success came with current Cowboys head coach Jason Garrett as his offensive coordinator. And that they have both coached a team full of players handpicked by legendary head coach Bill Parcells.

Still, the winning percentages do tell a tale. But which one is actually a better head coach in your eyes: Garrett or Phillips? That’s today’s poll question. Leave your vote below and feel free to explain your selection in our comments section.

    to me garret is a good coach with a bad gm, wade is a very good coordinator, not a head coach

  • deanhighlife

    Wade has had success at numerous head coaching positions other than Dallas. He was better in Dallas than Jason has been. Jerry’s loyalty to Red Jesus is the only thing saving him.
