At this point, it’s harder to tell which Mike has the hotter seat in Dallas.
Head coach Mike McCarthy and defensive coordinator Mike Nolan are both on the verge of being ousted by the Dallas Cowboys if this type of play continues. On Sunday, the team was crushed 25-3 by the Washington Football Team. Before that, the team was blown out 38-10 by the Arizona Cardinals on Monday Night Football.
Dak Prescott went down with an injury, which everyone understands; however, the team’s play the last two weeks has been anything but a unit. With the uncertainty in the air, Cowboys VP Stephen Jones commented on McCarthy’s job status.
“I know we’ve got the right head guy for the job,” Jones said on 105.3 The Fan on Monday. “. . . These things just take time. I know our fans are frustrated. We certainly understand the criticism that’s come our way. But we’ve got to go to work.”
Not everyone feels the same.
Now that the Dallas Cowboys dropped to 2-5 on the season after their embarrassing loss to the Washington Football Team, the Cowboys brass 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 on Twitter.
“Jerry Jones — you made a huge mistake and it happens to everyone — time to blow out the coaching staff and start over,” Cowherd said on twitter.
ESPN’s Keshawn Johnson appeared on First Take and said the team should pursue Michigan head coach Jim Harbaugh after this season. With that being highly unlikely, as well as McCarthy’s firing, all eyes will be on Nolan’s job security moving forward.
