Their defensive coordinator had been under fire since last season. Firing him sends a message he wasn't getting it done. Cutting players sends a message they're not getting it done. No game is a sure win in the NFL but the Philly game is the only real winnable game the Cowboys have left. The only solid win the Cowboys have had this season was on opening night vs the Giants. None of us would have ever imagined that. The Cowboys are not a very good team so it's hard to envision them blowing anyone out when almost all the wins they've had this season have been ugly. Their biggest margin of victory was 15 points and that was a result of 21 points by the defense and special teams. The "offense" has scored over 30 points only once all season.
