(November 25, 2010) --- The NFL is now on notice... lose a game to the Packers and you just may lose your job.
The day after Dallas got their silver butts booted 45-7 by the Green Bay Packers at Lambeau Field a couple of weeks ago, Cowboys owner Jerry Jones watched carefully as head coach Wade Phillips boxed up his stuff, had his defensive linemen escort him out of his office while Jones gave Phillips one last piece of advice; "Don’t let my million-dollar screen door hit your fat ass on the way out."

Then, after the Packers’ next game, it happened again... another NFL head coach was canned smack-dab in the middle of the season. Yep, just 24-hours after the USS Green Bay torpedoed the sinking Vikings’ ship 31-3 in the Land of 10,000 Lakes, Minnesota football fans could still be heard booing as Brad Childress was handed his own personal purple version of the pink slip.
But what now for Phillips and Childress?

Well, apparently they have already found new gigs. The PackerPage and Entertainment Weekly report that CBS television has signed the two former head coaches to play key roles in their revival of the Sixties military TV sitcom "Hogan’s Heroes."
Nancy Tellem, President of CBS Network Television Entertainment, said she couldn’t believe their luck. "Around the same time Phillips and Childress were fired from their coaching jobs, we just happened to be casting for someone to play the role of a fat, dumb, inept German sergeant and a bald, skinny, bumbling Nazi colonel. It was a perfect fit!"
