What Dallas Cowboys coach Wade Phillips had to say after the Cowboys' 14-10 win over the Washington Redskins, plus what he could have said:
What Wade said: "It's an important win for us, big win for us. Everybody's saying must or not must. Certainly, it puts us back in the picture, and that's where we want to be."
What Wade could have said: "How 'bout THESE Cowboys!!!"
"I do think there was a lot of urgency about this week's practices, and last week, too."
What Wade could have said: "I know I was checking the message pad of Jerry's secretary to see if he was getting any phone calls from Bill Cowher."
"The best defense is when you're off the field. They were off the field the last six minutes of the game. That helps you, too. That was big for us."
What Wade could have said: "So why don't you start calling Jason Garrett 'Mr. Fix-It?'"
"I find it frustrating when we have penalties, yes."
What Wade could have said: "I also find it frustrating when we win a game to save our season and maybe my job and I'm asked about penalties."
"I just think we're playing better. The Giant game, even the Giant game, we were playing good pass defense."
What Wade could have said: "Even though the Giants didn't really need to throw the ball well because they rushed for something like 200 yards against us."
"Marion Barber, he had over 100 yards. I don't know how many times that Dallas backs have had over 100 against the Redskins or whatever. I think he made some kind of record there. You can look it up, I guess."
What Wade could have said: [Note to readers: We would love to look it up, but we have no idea what Wade was talking about.]
"We said, really, the second half of the season for us, after the bye week, was starting right now. We're going to go from there."
What Wade could have said: "And we're going to do it our way, baby!!!"
