What Wade Phillips said ... What Wade Phillips could have said

What Dallas Cowboys coach Wade Phillips had to say after the Cowboys' 31-22 win over the Cincinnati Bengals, plus what he could have said:

What Wade said: “Cincinnati is certainly capable. They've got good players. They have a really good quarterback and really good receivers.”

What Wade could have said: “I'm telling you, Cincinnati is going to win a game at some point this season. I'm just glad it wasn't against us.”

What Wade said: “[Cincinnati] made some plays. That team took the Giants into overtime.”

What Wade could have said: “And we were able to beat that same winless team without having to go into overtime.”

What Wade said: “Some teams would have lost this game.”

What Wade could have said: “For example, Cincinnati.”

What Wade said: “We emphasized the running game.”

What Wade could have said: “Because I spent all week emphasizing the running game.”

What Wade said: “They are doubling Terrell [Owens] every play. That's what teams are doing.”

What Wade could have said: “And if our owner says we're going to have to force the ball to Terrell even when he's double-teamed, I'm going to be the one sitting on the bench and crying under a towel."

What Wade said: “We have some things we certainly need to work on. We'll try to address those.”

What Wade could have said: “But there are only so many hours in a work week, you know.”

What Wade said: “We would like for [the offense] to be better, certainly, right now in this game. Hopefully, next game we will be on all cylinders.”

What Wade could have said: “Considering Arizona hung 41 points on Buffalo, our offense had better be on all cylinders in the next game.”

What Wade said: “We are all happy that we won. It's hard to do in this league, and we did it today.”

What Wade could have said: “If you think it's hard to win now, just wait until the playoffs.”
