Wade Phillips Could Be Fired After Jerry Jones Says Cowboys Will 'Suffer Consequences'

Dallas Cowboys fans at Blogging The Boys have asked Jerry Jones to do something about Wade Phillips and the situation at head coach. There hasn't been a move yet but Jones hinted on Sunday at "consequences" coming for those in the Cowboys organization.

"There are a lot of people here who are certainly going to suffer and suffer consequences," Jones said. "I'm talking about within the team -- players, coaches who have got careers. This is certainly a setback. I know firsthand what it is to have high expectations. I think unquestionably that our expectations were thinking we're something we were not, possibly looking at what might be relative to a Super Bowl. All of those things have certainly contributed early."

Jones said last week Phillips would remain the head coach for the rest of the season but that seems unlikely at this point. Jones' likely knows his words above would contribute to the "Fire Wade Phillips" bandwagon that's been created in Dallas.

Jones tells Tim McMahon of ESPN that he plans to talk to the team on Monday. The Cowboys still have Phillips' weekly press conference scheduled for Monday afternoon so at this point it doesn't appear there have been any definitive decisions on Phillips' future.

One thing's for sure and that's that we haven't heard the last of the question: Will Wade Phillips be fired?
