    IRVING, Texas -- Wade Phillips is undergoing his toughest stretch as a head coach.

    His Dallas Cowboys are 1-6, winless at home and in the middle of a four-game losing streak.

    Phillips has lost his starting quarterback, Tony Romo, until at least December. His running game is ranked next to last in the league. Phillips' defense -- his speciality -- is ranked 14th overall.

    Fans and media members are calling for his firing and the man who makes that decision, Jerry Jones, says he won't do it. Jones says the organization is on Plan B.

    People in coaching who know Phillips best say he's still doing the right things, but some years, the odds are against you.

    "I don't think you become a bad coach overnight ... just like you don't become a good coach overnight," said Dan Reeves, a former NFL head coach and close friend of Phillips. "I don't think all of sudden Wade has become a bad coach. I think the most difficult thing in any sport is to get off a losing streak, and when things are going well, it's easy. When things are going tough, it's hard to get it turned around."
