Those around the media have already given up on Mike McCarthy and Co.
Now that the Dallas Cowboys dropped to 2-5 on the season after their embarrassing 25-3 loss to the Washington Football Team, Jerry Jones has some serious heat. One of those hot takes comes from FS1’s Colin Cowherd who thinks that he needs to own up to making a mistake.
When the Cowboys trailed 22-3 at halftime, Cowherd took a shot at defensive coordinator Mike Nolan and McCarthy.
“Jerry Jones — you made a huge mistake and it happens to everyone — time to blow out the coaching staff and start over,” Cowherd twitter.
Letting McCarthy go would be highly dramatic after completing just his seventh game. Nolan is by far the easier choice at this time.
Despite having some big names on defense in Everson Griffen, DeMarcus Lawrence, Jaylon Smith, and Leighton Vander Esch, the Cowboys own the worst scoring defense in the NFL. At 36 points per game, the Cowboys have allowed 30 or more points in five straight games.

Altogether, the Cowboys tied an NFL record last Monday for most consecutive games of allowing 34 or more points. The Cowboys have allowed 34 or more points to the Browns, Cardinals, Falcons, Giants, and Seahawks.
The lowest of lows was allowing 49 points to the Cleveland Browns at AT&T Stadium. Even the 1-5 Giants scored 34 points on the Cowboys.
Going into Sunday, by allowing 36.3 points per game, the Cowboys are the worst scoring defense in the NFL. Despite the struggles, Jones was not ready to write off Nolan just yet.
“I like the way we came out last night defensively,” said Jones on 105.3 The Fan last Tuesday. “I thought we had a google plan for the skills of Murray and what the Cardinals presented us. These aren’t excuses.”
That could all change this week.
