The Dallas Cowboys lost yet another playoff game at a time when they needed a victory. The Cowboys had a great season and were arguably one of the top few teams expected to make it to the NFC Championship. Unfortunately for Dallas fans everywhere, the Cowboys failed in an attempt to beat the San Francisco 49ers resulting in an early exit from the playoffs once again.
Since then, Cowboys Nation have been calling for Dallas head coach Mike McCarthy to be fired. As we all know, McCarthy was fired from Green Bay back in 2018. You can see his comments below on how that situation was handled:
“”Anytime you lose a close game, it’s a difficult time emotionally afterwards, but when you lose a home game at Lambeau Field in December, it’s really hard. And that hasn’t happened very often,” McCarthy told Demovsky. “I walked out of my press conference, and I’m thinking about the game, thinking about how our playoff shot was now minimal. That’s where my head was at. And when I was told Mark Murphy wanted to see me – and the messenger was cold and the energy was bad. Mark said it was an ugly loss, and it was time to make change.”
Early reports indicate that Cowboys team owner Jerry Jones does not intend on firing McCarthy any time soon. Jones is known for giving his head coaches plenty of time to show success before cutting them loose, and in some cases entirely too much time (i.e. Jason Garrett).
So what’s next for the Cowboys? Odds are, winning in the NFC East next year and having yet another early exit in the playoffs.
