The media gathered for Cowboys head coach Wade Phillips ran in a state of panic when Phillips stepped back from the podium, began clawing at his face, and Cowboys owner Jerry Jones emerged from beneath the body suit.
Cowboys PR staff relaxed the stunned reporters with promises of free food, and not being able to resist, the assembled media went inside to hear coach Jerry Jones tell about his game plan to beat the Giants.
“We’re going to rest Terrell Owens,” Jones said. “We’re not playing for just one game.”
When asked about his clever disguise as Wade Phillips, Jones replied that it was all a gag, he was just trying to quiet all the rumors that Phillips was a puppet head coach.
“Wade Phillips has done an excellent job these past 10 months,” Jones said. “He will be the head coach of the Cowboys next season.”
