To anyone who thinks Wade Phillips was fired for not dumping a friend, forget it. He lost his job one Saturday night in Seattle, when Doug Flutie picked the Seattle defense apart and had the game of his life. Even the Rob Johnson fans choked on their chicken wings.
Any coach who continues to start a quarterback who has never won a big game, can't get plays off in time, can't read the defenses and gets sacked 49 times in a half a season should have lost his job long before the season ended.
Doug finally gets his revenge for being benched in Tennessee when one touchdown in the first half would have made that infamous kick return meaningless. It took almost a year but to Doug Flutie revenge must be sweet.
