IRVING — It took 37-plus seasons for Texas Stadium to wear down and finally wear out. The current edition of the Cowboys managed to do it in one night.
Saturday’s last call for football in the Irving river bottoms also signaled, almost definitely, the end of something else. Meaning this season, and all the early over-blown hype associated with it.
Speaking of bye-bye, also please include the brief local coaching career of Wade Phillips, unless he can somehow blame the evening’s sudden defensive collapse on his thrown-under-the-bus friend, Brian Stewart.
