The Dallas Cowboys lost to the San Francisco 49ers in the Split by a score of 19-12. Their bad games continued with a blocked extra point on their only touch, but the poor play of most of the teams was what really engulfed them.
That often speaks of training or a lack of it. During his career, McCarthy was not known as a coach for the big games. He won a Super Bowl, but his Green Bay Packers career (and so far it’s been like that of the Cowboys) was characterized by big-game exits.
This one is no different, and it also has a fan calling him “White Doc Rivers”.
Jeremiah Muhammad tweeted:
“Mike McCarthy is a white Doc Rivers with less drama. Honestly could have been worse.”
Cowboys fans have not been treated like the level of success they had in the 1980s and ’90s, although today their team is often a real contender.
McCarthy’s play call on last playThe best would be a Hail Mary or horizontal play, which is for Ezekiel Elliott to catch the ball and be the sole saver in the entire attack.
It’s one of the weirdest calling games in recent history, and naturally, it just didn’t work.
Cowboys Owner Jerry Jones said this playoff loss means nothing to McCarthy’s job guarantee. That may be disappointing for some Cowboys fans.

The Dallas Cowboys are entering an important season. It could be argued that they are just a few pieces this season, but they are likely to lose a lot of players.
Adam Schefter tweeted:
“Key Dallas free agents this winter: TE Dalton Schultz, RB Tony Pollard, S Donovan Wilson, LB Leighton Vander Esch, G Connor McGovern, CB Anthony Brown, QB Cooper Rush, LB Anthony Barr, DE Dante Fowler, WR Noah Brown, WR TY Hilton, DT Johnathan Hankins.”
They could lose their starting spot in many positions and a lot of depth this season. Not only do they need to keep many of these players, but they also have gaps that need to be addressed. This is going to be a very important and exciting season in Cowboys land.
