With the Season Over; Assistant Coaches Sure to Move On

Now that the season is over for the top seeded Dallas Cowboys, look for their coaching staff to be torn apart as it’s likely two of their top assistants are going to be on other sidelines next season. It’s no secret that the Miami Dolphins are very high and according to ESPN’s John Clayton, almost for sure, going to hire offensive line and assistant head coach Tony Sparano as their new head coach. The hiring will probably happen this week, even though today the Fins are going to talk to Mike Tice about the position.

As for offensive coordinator Jason Garrett, the Dallas Morning News is reporting that he is now the main target to be the new head coach of the Ravens. The paper is reporting that Garrett is the “primary target” for the Ravens, who continue to look for a new head coach after firing Brian Billick on December 31st. If for some reason Garrett does not land in Baltimore, he could find himself in Atlanta, where he has already interviewed for the head spot.

    This may not to be a popular opinion w/ most of you but I put most of the blame for this loss on Wade Phillips. I was never a believer in this guy and now after seeing his pathetic post-season mark drop to 0-4 my belief that he is at best an average head coach has not changed.

    This team is loaded w/ so much talent that they were bound to have a big year this year as most of the players came into this season w/ a little more experience and ready to play on another level and thus any number of average coaches could have had a great REGULAR season w/ this team.

    One thing that hasn’t changed is the way this team plays in the months of December and January where over the past 3 seasons they have gone 4-11 in those months. CLEARLY this core group of players has some issue w/ focus and readiness towards the end of the season regardless of who the coach has been. Meanwhile Norv Turner has his team playing their best football at this time and playing in the AFC title game. Anyway, back to Wade…

    It is the head coach’s job to have his team ready to play, especially after a bye week and this team yesterday was not. This makes two years in a row that a number one seed has gone down in their 1st playoff game w/ Wade on the sidelines, (last year his defense in San Diego was not ready in their loss to the Pats). Do you think the Cowboys would have lost yesterday if Bill Belichick were on their sidelines instead of Wade? No way. Belichick would have had some type of wrinkle in the defensive game plan that the Giants would not be expecting. The only thing the Giants didn’t see coming yesterday was on offense w/ the use of Marion Barber, which was a wrinkle thrown in by Garrett, not Phillips.

    All year long Wade has had his secondary playing 10 to 12 yards off of the line of scrimmage giving the opponent’s receivers a clean release w/ PLENTY of room to work w/ on underneath routes. In fact opponents still got deep plays all season against Wade’s sloppy deep zone coverage schemes. This flawed scheme was the very reason the Giants where able to score a touchdown w/ just 48 seconds to go in the 1st half, (a drive that truly turned the game in their favor).

    I will give Philips credit for one thing, his use of DeMarcus Ware. He did a much better job of utilizing Ware but Jerry will still be making a big mistake if he lets Garrett go in favor of keeping of keeping Phillips who has proven he lacks ANY sort of innovation in game planning and that his teams are never ready to play when it really counts.
