Jerry: Wade Phillips will finish season

By Tim MacMahon

IRVING, Texas -- It's often difficult to tell exactly what Jerry Jones means when he gets to rambling.

He seemed to crack open the door to considering a midseason change at head coach after the Cowboys' embarrassing loss to the Jacksonville Jaguars. Jerry never came out and said that straight up, but he talked a lot about changes and tough decisions during his 22-minute chat with the media.

He wasn't nearly as loquacious when the subject of possibly firing Wade Phillips came up during Jerry’s Friday appearance on KRLD-FM. He had a one-word reply when asked directly whether Phillips would finish the season as the Cowboys’ head coach.

“Yes,” he said.

Of course, that won’t keep us from asking all sorts of variations of the same question if the Cowboys keep losing.
