Will Wade Phillips be fired by Jerry Jones?
Updated at 11 a.m.
Wade Phillips, according to sources who have spoken with him today, doesn't think anything is happen regarding his future as Cowboys coach today, Fox's Jay Glazer tweets.
The Cowboys emailed members of the media to say that Phillips' press conference is scheduled for 4 p.m. (CST).

Dallas Cowboys owners Jerry Jones will meet with Cowboys coaches this afternoon at the team's Valley Ranch facility, Albert Breer of the NFL Network reports.
"There are a lot of people here who are certainly going to suffer and suffer consequences," Jones told Tim MacMahon of ESPNDallas.com. "I'm talking about within the team -- players, coaches who have got careers. This is certainly a setback. I know firsthand what it is to have high expectations. I think unquestionably that our expectations were thinking we're something we were not, possibly looking at what might be relative to a Super Bowl. All of those things have certainly contributed early.
"But we have so many things that we need to correct and address, as this game so vividly exposed and previous games have. I've got a lot of work to do, got a lot of decisions to make. And it's not just one, two, three or four. There are several decisions. I think everybody in this country would agree that there's a lot wrong with this team that we've got to address, and I'm certainly the one to address it."
As for what the Cowboys' problems may be, Jones said: "I can't put my finger on it because I don't have enough fingers."
There's always a chance Jones lets the whole lot of 'em keep coaching. It's not like there are a ton of alternatives. You can't sell Jason Garrett to fans, Jean-Jacques Taylor writes.

The Wade Phillips watch is on. And this time we mean it.
The Dallas Cowboys suffered the fifth-worst defeat in their history, falling 45-7 to the Green Bay Packers at Lambeau and even Phillips had to admit the obvious:
"They whipped us about every way you can whip somebody. It looked like we were fighting hard early, but once it caved in it caved in on us. We looked like a bad team, with bad coaching. That's the way we played.''
There is outrage about the possibility that Phillips might not last the season. Outrage, in the way that it's Bash the Cowboys While They're Down Day in Washington or, as it's also known, Monday. (See Facebook, ""Keep Wade Phillips in Dallas Forever" presumably as coach of the Cowboys from Andy Eckert).
Redskins fans are nothing if not helpful.
Luckily for Wade Phillips, his inevitable firing should happen before all the Mall Santa job vacancies are filled. Closed door, open window.
