Wade Phillips’ Job Status Is “Absolutely Safe”

Despite the Cowboys’ woeful 1-3 start, coach Wade Phillips’ job is not in jeopardy right now. Not yet, anyway.

Cowboys executive vice president Stephen Jones told NFL Network’s Albert Breer that Phillips’ job is “absolutely” safe.

“I think in our organization everybody is taking responsibility, not just Wade,” Stephen Jones said. “He does. He takes responsibility. The coaching staff takes responsibility. The players take it. We all take it.”

Cowboys owner Jerry Jones, expressed confidence that Phillips will turn the season around.

“I’m very comfortable that we can do better,” Jerry Jones said.

Jerry Jones repeatedly has made clear this season that he supports Phillips, who has been under fire since the Cowboys’ failure to reach the playoffs in 2008, the coach’s second season in charge. Phillips was given a two-year contract extension in January after guiding the team to its second NFC East title in three seasons and first postseason win in a dozen years.

    The dreaded voice of confidence. I don’t see JJ making a change during the season. But if things continue the way they are now you can bet that as soon as the last game is over everyone is gone.
