The question has been asked, Are you happy with the Cowboys’ recent choice of Wade Phillips over (the supposed favorite) Norv Turner?
I don’t know much about any of this. The talking heads around here all seem to think it’s a smart and safe choice. Mainly, since he’s a defense guy, I’m pleased. We need a defense guy.
Now I just want training camp to start.
I don’t have anything more interesting to say right now. I’m kind of sad that Anna Nicole Smith died, though I don’t know why because I don’t know much about her. It just seems she was a sad and lonely little girl.
I am going to write up my thoughts about Special Topics in Calamity Physics which I liked so much in audio that I immediately ordered it in hardcover and am going to read it now.
And unless I finally shake it out of my head, I’m going to write what is probably the grosses blog entry I will ever write. I’ve been fighting against it for three or four days now.
I don’t know that I can win this battle.

Well, Wade ain’t Bum.
And Norv wasn’t any hero when he was in DC.
Troy loved Norv.
But you need a Son of Bum on some level….
Well, Norv hasn’t proven any ability to pull off the gig. Wade, um, sort of has. I guess.
Poor Bum. I remember that silly “Houston Oiler” song.
Wade knows the playoffs, but Wade has never won in the playoffs. So that’s one up on Norv, in terms of head coaching, since Norv couldn’t get it done in D.C. or Oakland. The offense last season wasn’t the problem, excluding Terry Glenn disappearing for stretches and T.O.’s case of the “drops-ies.”
Wade is an interim coach and was hired as such. Either Cowher or someone of his coaching level will be available in 2008 or 2009, or Jason Garrett will be ready by then.
Wade is a good person and a good coordinator, but his past experience suggests that he can’t handle T.O. and the offensive side of the ball. The defense will improve substantially and Demarcus Ware should have the type of season that Shawne Merriman does, minus the steroids.
He’s a good coach, though I think that Mike Singletary could do a better job, from a locker room standpoint. Though he certainly doesn’t have the head coaching experience.
