Dallas Cowboys Head Coach Mike McCarthy has recently gained attention for his crazy off-season changes. As stated many times before, McCarthy went a bit genocidal firing a whole host of coaches from his coaching staff, including Offensive Coordinator Kellen Moore.
This is old news though. The better questions and concerns that have been popping up are whether or not Mike McCarthy is in danger of losing his job with the Cowboys next season.
This may seem silly, but there are possible timelines in which McCarthy is fired from his head coaching job in Dallas.
This mainly comes from the fact that McCarthy has a very talented team with literal Super Bowl potential, yet is unable to lead them to victory in big games, such as the NFC Divisional round.
McCarthy will be starting his fourth year as the Cowboys' head coach in 2023 and has now led them to two consecutive seasons of 12-5 records.
That is very good, but is it enough?
Fans are getting tired of the same thing over and over again. We want some success outside of the regular season. This is why McCarthy may be on the hot seat for his job.
If Mike McCarthy can't get past this postseason curse, then Jerry Jones may well end up showing him the woodshed behind the executive offices at The Star in Frisco, TX.
Don't get me wrong, a coach that can lead a team to back-to-back 12-win seasons is a great coach, but for the Cowboys, it's not enough.
McCarthy's Dallas Cowboys team is filled with some of the most talented defenders and offensive players the NFL has ever seen, yet he still struggles to find success in the big games.
Another act of aggression came when McCarthy decided to fire all those coaches.
Can a man really just go rogue on his team and get away with it? I actually agree with what McCarthy did and stand by his decision to fire those coaches, but how come Jerry Jones is so comfortable with all of this?
This brings us back to the main question of whether or not McCarthy is in trouble.
It honestly seems like Jerry Jones has given most of his trust and power to McCarthy.
For all we know, Mike McCarthy may very well be THE man in Dallas right now, completely in control of everything.
So, maybe McCarthy isn't in as much trouble as we thought.
Perhaps he's safer than ever under the wings of Jerry Jones' protection. We have all seen how much Jones believes in McCarthy and he's always stating how Mike is the man to lead them to the Super Bowl and beyond.
While many fans have a hard time believing that, the only opinion that matters for that topic is that of Mr. Jerry Jones.
Cowboys fans can expect to see McCarthy there for quite some time, as long as he keeps the trust and acceptance of Jerry Jones. We'll see if McCarthy can do it again next season with either the same or a better record than the two years prior.
