I must be really dumb. I bet if i gave you the head coaching job in dallas you would do much better.
I can't believe I read the words "offensive genius" and "Wade Phillips" in the same sentence
This being the same Wade Phillips who lead the Bills and Broncos and is a former Defensive Coordinator right? I think the offensive genius on the Cowboys' sideline is Jason Garrett, oh and it helps to have talent like Romo, Witten, T.O., Barber, etc.
Just because somebody was a former defensive coach doesnt mean they don't know offense buddy. Since he's been the head coach there numbers has gone up. Maybe its a coincidence or maybe its just luck. Unless he has a Joe Paterno situation where he's there as a motivator/recruitor, i think its safe to call the head coach of the 4th best offensive team last year a genius.
I never said you were dumb... but am not going to contend that. I also never claimed to be an offensive genius, and it's safe to say that putting me on the sideline would be a bad idea, but congratulations on pointing out the obvious, that Wade Phillips is a better coach then I, arm chair quarterback. I will say it is absolutely assanine to think that he is an offensive genius looking at his history. He had 1 top 10 offense in points scored in 3 seasons as the Bills head coach, his first season after taking over for Marv Levy. His offenses have progressively gotten worse in each head coaching gig the further he gets into his stay. His first year with the Broncos and HOF QB John Elway he "lead," and I say that very loosely the Broncos to the 3rd most points scored in the league that year. He followed that up with his team falling to 10th in scoring in his second season as head coach, after which he lost his job. He later coached three seasons in Buffalo where his offense went from 7th in points in 1998, to 16th in 1999 and 20th in 2000... some genius!
I suppose the Cowboys offensive improvement when Phillips took over as head coach had nothing to do with Romo going into his second season as the starter (after taking over the starting duties a few games into the previous season), or Marion Barber gaining another year of experience. Nope, none at all, just the offensive genius of Wade Phillips, who leaves all the offensive play calling to his offensive coordinator Jason Garrett (and rightfully so, since Phillips himself realizes he should not be responsible for an offense).
So call him a genius if you'd like, but that would just be ignorant of the facts which have been laid before you, but congrats on a highly comical post
