The Dallas Cowboys are yet to make a change in their coaching staff despite being eliminated from the playoffs on Wild Card Weekend. It sounds like Mike McCarthy was disappointed in his performance.
Charles Haley, five-time Super Bowl champion, spoke to ESPN’s Ed Werder about the Cowboys’ defeat to the 49ers. Let’s just say that he gave a very blunt assessment of the game last weekend.
“Well, if the group was nervous, he didn’t do his job during that week,” Haley explained to Werder.
On Sunday, the Cowboys were not prepared at times. McCarthy stated that they were also unorganized, something McCarthy promised he would fix in the offseason.
I interviewed five-time Super Bowl winner Charles Haley. I asked his reaction to Mike McCarthy describing the #Cowboys as nervous when SF game started: “Well, if the team was nervous, he didn't do his job during the week.”

Jerry Jones, Cowboys owner, addressed his coaching staff on Friday’s 105.3 The Fan. It was clear that he didn’t sound happy.
“Let me be real clear, one of the pet peeves I have is that I don’t like this, ‘Well we’ve got to work on this in the offseason, we got to work on this.’ I don’t go for that,” Jones said. “I want those things recognized and addressed after we play Tampa after the first game, or after we play the sixth game. I don’t want to wait until we’re sitting here with no season left to address these things we’re doing or not doing. All of that is in the mix here and a part of what I do. That’s the way I do it, as you know, the ultimate decision in these coaches is one that I have to make.”
There is no indication that Dallas will be moving on from McCarthy at this point.
If the Cowboys decide to make a change at head coach this offseason, it’s because the team had a flat performance on the biggest stage.
