Dallas Cowboys make baffling decision regarding head coach Mike McCarthy

Mike McCarthy, the head coach of the Dallas Cowboys, is expected to return for the 2024 NFL season, according to recent news. This is a really puzzling choice.

To repeatedly do the same thing and expect a different outcome is the definition of insanity.

That holds true for all facets of life, including athletics. Despite winning 12 games in the regular season for three years in a row and having subpar

postseason results, the Cowboys are still with Mike McCarthy in 2024.

The Cowboys have not advanced past the Divisional Round of the NFL Playoffs since the mid-90s, before some of you were even born, including myself.

Every year that the Cowboys make the postseason, the jokes start about how they won’t do well, and that was the case this year, as the upstart Green Bay Packers walked into Jerry World and dismantled the talented Cowboys.

And after yet another disappointing postseason exit in the Mike McCarthy tenure, Jerry Jones is still going to bring him back in 2024.

When you look at McCarthy as a regular season head coach, he boasts a very strong record. He’s gone 42-25 in the regular season with the Cowboys, which is one of the best records in the NFL over the last four seasons.

Heck, he is average 10.5 wins per season.

However, the Cowboys are 1-3 in the postseason under McCarthy, clearing hitting a ceiling when the playoffs begin.

And each year, their exit from the postseason is the same type of ugly, disappointing performance.

In the NFL, teams will not win Super Bowls without taking HUGE risks to some degree.

In recent memory, there have been countless instances like this.

With Tyrod Taylor as their main quarterback, the Buffalo Bills advanced to the postseason in 2017.

They gambled by selecting Josh Allen in the 2018 draft because they correctly saw that Taylor would not win a Super Bowl.

During the Alex Smith era, the Kansas City Chiefs went 50–26, but it was evident that Smith was not nearly talented enough to lead KC to a Super

Bowl, so they traded Smith for Patrick Mahomes.

The Denver Broncos went 46-18 when John Fox was their head coach during the 2012-2014 seasons.

However, a 3-4 playoff record was simply not good enough, so they moved on from Fox and won a Super Bowl in the next season with Gary Kubiak as the head coach.

The Dallas Cowboys have clearly hit a ceiling with their own head coach, and bringing him back for yet another season is truly insane.

And this is especially true when you look at guys like Mike Vrabel and Bill Belichick being free agents.

Both Vrabel and Belichick would have been upgrades over McCarthy and have shown, in their own ways, the ability to win tough games with their respective rosters.

I think if Jerry Jones was serious about winning, he would have parted ways with McCarthy and shot for the moon for a potential upgrade at head coach.
