If you're an NFL fan, Wade Phillips is like the gift that just keeps on giving. Every time you think you've seen the most perfect Wade Phillips moment, he finds a way to outdo himself.
Here he is explaining why the 1-4 Dallas Cowboys should still be optimistic:
"I guess we think we’re a better 1-4 team than some teams that are 1-4. I mean mentally. They don’t think they might not win the next game. Gosh, we might not win this next one. This team thinks… I still think they think they’re going to win this next game. Now, we’ve got work to do and all that."
Yeah, I hear you Wade. At least the Cowboys are an unreasonably confident 1-4!
[10 yards for holding]
They may miss the playoffs, but hey, there have been some GREAT 5-11 teams over the years.
[15 yards for excessive celebration]
This team thinks... Well, Wade still thinks they think they're going to win this game. They've just got some "work to do and all that."
[gives up kick return TD]
See what I mean? Wade Phillips is the best. He's the gift that keeps giving.
[vote of confidence from Jerry Jones]
Unless you're a Cowboys fan like me, in which case he's the knife that keeps getting twisted deeper and deeper, until you sort of just want to die so you don't have to watch a Wade Phillips-coached team anymore.
