    I would say there is some serious talk going on right now. Jerry Jones wanted to showcase his palace next February hosting the Super Bowl, and he and others thought the Cowboys would be in that game....without something along the lines of a miracle happening, he won't live to see the Cowboys win the Super Bowl in that facility.

    Do you think there is serious discussion going on at this moment regarding Norv's future as a Charger head coach?

    I'd be ok with demoting Norv to OC, then he can spend all his time talking to Philip while the D is on the field

    To be fair Rivera hasn't had a whole lot to work with.

    Even if there's not actual discussion in the front office, I will not be tuning into sports shows this week because it will be all Wade, all the time.

    First article of the week

    Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones says he won't fire Wade Phillips during season - ESPN Dallas

    MINNEAPOLIS -- Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones admitted that his team's 1-4 start has drained his optimism, but he declared that Wade Phillips would remain the head coach for at least the rest of the season.


    ESPN NFL analyst Cris Carter says the Cowboys need to fire coach Wade Phillips. Plus, Carter says Bears QB Jay Cutler won't make it through the year with the amount of hits he's taking. He also says the NFL should widen the field to decrease violent hits.

    Jones addressed Phillips' job status without prompting in the Cowboys' locker room after Sunday's penalty-plagued 24-21 loss to the Minnesota Vikings at the Metrodome. He reminded reporters that he had never fired a coach in midseason and said that Phillips would not be the first.

    "I would never consider doing that during the season," Jones said.

    However, Jones did not give Phillips a vote of confidence. He acknowledged that the Cowboys are in serious trouble due in large part to a glaring lack of discipline.

    "I'm not [optimistic]," Jones said. "I'm very disappointed. I realize the challenge that we've got, and we're not playing well enough to get it done right now. We're running out of the opportunity to make this season what we meant it to be."


    The Cowboys were penalized 11 times for 91 yards against the Vikings, including calls that negated a 68-yard touchdown pass to Miles Austin and a 34-yard punt return by Dez Bryant. It was the third game this season -- and second week in a row -- that the Cowboys have been flagged at least 11 times.

    "Obviously, it's coaching," Phillips said. "We're going to keep working on it until we get it right."
