On Monday night, Cowherd took to Twitter to challenge Jerry Jones’ decision on hiring Mike McCarthy.
“Jerry Jones wanted a coach that wouldn’t challenge him,” said on Twitter during the game. “He hired a coach that’s created a team — that won’t challenge anyone.”
After the game, NFL Network’s Jane Slater reported that many players on the roster are slamming the coaching staff. “Totally unprepared,” an anonymous player on the Cowboys told Slater. “They don’t teach. They don’t have any sense of adjusting on the fly.”
Slater also reported that players are slamming the coaching staff, stating “the coaches are not good at their jobs.”
It was the first game without Dak Prescott as the team’s quarterback, but not everyone appears to be giving the team the benefit of the doubt.

Not everyone is slamming McCarthy though. During his weekly appearances on The Pat McAfee Show, Rodgers was asked about McCarthy’s coaching in Dallas through these first six weeks. Rodgers has been once reported to having beef with McCarthy in the past, but he took the high road with his response.
“As far as I know what the facts are today. They’re in 1st place in the division,” Rodgers said. “First place in any division regardless of the record assures you a home playoff game. We won our division in 2013 at 8-7-1.”
