Stephen A. Smith is another member of the media that believes Mike McCarthy should be out.
With the 25-3 loss to the Washington Football Team on Sunday, the Cowboys dropped to 2-5 on the season. Smith believes that the writing is as clear as day when it comes to McCarthy’s future.
On Monday’s edition of First Take, Smith said that McCarthy is “clearly” not the right fit for this Cowboys team. The well-known ESPN personality believes that Jones needs to realize he made a mistake and cut the bad fruit from the tree.
“Look, Jerry Jones’ reputation as an owner who fires coaches willy-nilly is outdated and, frankly, was never really deserved when you look at the history. And no one likes to admit a mistake. But if we get to the end of the season and the NFC East champ has only six or seven wins and the Cowboys aren’t it? They would have to be considered the biggest failure of any team in the league,” via ESPN.
Smith’s former ESPN co-worker, Colin Cowherd, took to Twitter to explain his similar feelings. 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 wrote.
Smith’s former co-host on First Take, Skip Bayless, described the Dallas Cowboys 25-3 loss to the Washington Football Team as a “nightmare.” Bayless tweeted the line when the Cowboys found themselves trailing 15-3 in the rain. The game was never close and the Cowboys were outplayed in virtually every aspect of the game.
If the nightmares continue, McCarthy could be out of a job very soon.
