  • Do you think that Dallas should get rid of Mike McCarthy at this point?

  • Yeah, I dio.

  • I think it's a foregone conclusion.

  • He's not the man for the job.

  • I'm not going to disrespect him by saying he doesn't.

  • He doesn't.

  • He's not worthy of being a head coach in the National Football League.

  • I think this particular situation is not for him.

  • And I think that, you know, when you consider to me the indictment, the ultimate indictment against him was bringing in Mike Nolan when you got a guy that was last seen as the defensive coordinator six years earlier.

  • And he had the second worst defense in the National Football League.

  • And nobody has offered him a defensive coordinators job for those six years for you to lose your job with Aaron Rodgers as your quarterback, to be gone from the game for a full year and a pretty much a year and a half going around different practices, talking to different coaches, studying analytics, learning the errors of your ways, supposedly and all of this other stuff, and then you come back into a new job and Rod Marinelli in Russia and Christmas charge, they were doing a good job is a defensive A defensive minds for the Dallas Cowboys the last couple of years or so, and you walk in and they're gone.

  • And your answer is to bring in a dude that failed six years ago.

  • You just showed that all of that stuff that you said you learned meant absolutely nothing.

  • And in the end, when it comes down to Marcus in all seriousness, this is what I said yesterday.

  • On first take, you can see the players don't want to play for him.

  • You could see it now.

  • I don't know why that is the case.

  • I'm not challenging.

  • I wanna be very, very clear.

  • I am not challenging.

  • I'm in no position.

  • I'm not qualified to challenge Mike McCarthy's knowledge off the game off football.

  • I know my basketball not covered it for damn near quarter century.

  • Okay, but football I'm watching.

  • I'm a spectator.

  • And even though Max and Marcus and Molly I covered it, you know, you're a columnist, you're watching and you, you know, you see what you see, the shoulder that you go.

  • I didn't and I didn't do that.

  • So here's the deal.

  • It's a totally different ball game, and I understand that.

  • But what I do what I do know how to do is listen to people who do know, listen to aficionados.

  • Here's the kind of things that they say and utilize that as informational tools thio gauge and judge the performance of somebody else.

  • One of the things that made me incredibly successful as a beat writer and beyond in the newspaper industry and beyond.

  • I always I always knew they would sit up and say You're not in this locker united So you know what I used to do?

  • Max and Markets at the very beginning of every season I would go up to the coach and I would go up to the president of football operations of the president of basketball operations or whatever sport I'm covering.

  • And I'd say to them defined success for me, not just for this team, but for each individual personnel that's on this squad.

  • And I would always judge according toa what they said define success and it better be consistent because the second it wasn't I was gonna pounce on him because I knew it.

  • And what I'm saying is you look at these guys.

  • You see them with that Prescott.

  • You knew that when Jason gears a little bit too soft, too friendly with them, etcetera, etcetera, because he was supposed to bring us up to different, and he certainly has.

  • You know what he's brought.

  • It's no fun being a member of the Dallas Cowboys, and it's not just because they're losing.

  • They're not feeling this man and you can see it.

  • You gotta do what Arizona did.

  • You just gotta move in a different direction.

  • I'm actually ambivalent about whether you get rid of him now or at the end of the season, but he's got to go, and I think it's worse than you, Stephen A.

  • You're like I'm not saying he doesn't deserve a job in the NFL.

  • I am not as a head coach.

  • He just failed in his last one.

  • He was.

  • He won a Super Bowl.

  • You don't do that by accident, but the league is constantly changing, and the coaches who remain great are the ones who can adapt.

  • Mike Tomlin, Bill Belichick, uh, Andy Reid, right?

  • They've adapted with the times.

  • Their teams look different from year to year.

  • Their philosophies change, according to the particulars, right?

  • That wasn't Mike McCarthy.

  • He had Aaron Rodgers and lost his job.

  • Guys, how many times have you seen a quarterback as good as Aaron Rodgers and the coach loses his job?

  • That means he wasn't good.

  • Not anymore.

  • Maybe once he was, it wasn't good anymore.

  • So Jerry Jones, the reason he's getting testy there when he's getting interviewed is because the guy who needs to go is Jerry Jones.

  • When I walk into the locker room, I don't see an absence of leadership because you're not the best GM.

  • Jerry You and Stephen Jones air.

  • Okay, you're not bad.

  • Their worst G M's in the two of you.

  • Your average 8.5 wins for 10 years Now.

  • You gotta be doing something right.

  • I agree, no question about it, But you ain't the best.

  • You're not elite.

  • You're not in the top third even off G.

  • M's in the game, Jen.

  • And now you have your in a down cycle.

  • And so what Jerry doesn't want to say is the GM needs an upgrade.

  • And if the GM doesn't need an upgrade, who hired the coach who hired the coaching staff, who drafted the players who signed the free agents Jerry Jones and Stephen Jones.

  • That's the issue.

  • Whether or not you fire McCarthy now at the end of the season doesn't matter.

  • Cowboys ain't doing anything this year, anyway, but he's got to go.

  • They made a mistake.

  • Cowboys don't usually higher fire coaches quickly.

  • In this case, they should.

  • Ah, few points, man, because both of you all right, But But let me let me start with this because I think it's important Thio separate.

  • Most teams that lose their starting offensive line will have a bad season.

  • Most teams that lose their starting quarterback, who's one of the best better quarterbacks in the league, Top 10 at minimum is going toe.

  • Have a bad season.

  • Most teams that make a defense if change philosophically when you don't have guys to fit the personnel in which Mike Nolan wants to run this defense are going to be bad on defense.

  • But here's why.

  • I'm on the same boat about Mike McCarthy that both of you all on and Stephen that you brought up a great point about what's the success and how does that relationship and conversation transfer when I look at the Dallas Cowboys play.

  • They have no answers.

  • You're supposed as a coach.

  • You're supposed to provide answers no matter how hard it ISS.

  • When you lose your offensive line, you're supposed to provide answers no matter how hard it is.

  • When you lose your starting quarterback, you're supposed to provide answers.

  • No matter how much Mike Nolan thinks Hiss System works with his defense of guys in the way they're playing, you're supposed to provide answers.

  • There isn't supposed to be the same mistakes being made weekend and week out when Zeke Elliot fumbles Week one and two.

  • Regardless of how much it took that toe, try to get you back in the game that's supposed to be addressed.

  • Week one and two.

  • Thanks for watching ESPN on YouTube for live streaming sports and premium content.
