Cowboys face a challenging season with new head coach Mike McCarthy
The current Dallas Cowboys season has been a tough one so far. One could argue that it’s due to COVID, or a lack of good players, or political tension, or just about anything under the sun – but let’s face it, Dallas’s home team isn’t doing too well this season. It hasn’t helped that head coach Mike McCarthy is in his first year with all of this happening, but we certainly believe he has the potential to make a turn-around for the entire team in the years to come.
So far this season, the Cowboys have only been able to attain two wins and have, unfortunately, lost six. Most recently, they went up against the Philadelphia Eagles in a tough match. According to Yahoo Sports writer Frank Schwab, the Eagles should not have even statistically been able to win (they had turned the ball over and gotten sacked multiple times, and had less than 250 yards)1, but they still managed it due to our team playing so poorly. It didn’t help that our current starting quarterback, Andy Dalton of Fort Worth, Texas, was also out on the reserve roster due to COVID. The Cowboys’ primary starting QB, Dak Prescott, has already been out this season for a broken ankle. The Cowboys ended up losing that last game against the Eagles with a final score of 9 to 23 in an upsetting loss for fans.
Multiple players out
For diehard Dallas fans, it’s been a tough year so far seeing so many players out. According to ESPN, the team had more than $61 million in salaried players on the sideline2. That’s essentially the majority of Dallas’s highest paid athletes not even being able to play. While it’s most definitely been a challenging season for all NFL teams because of the pandemic, it’s proved to be an even more difficult one for Dallas.
Hopeful for McCarthy
We hate to see this unfortunate set of games so far, especially because of Dallas’s new head coach – Mike McCarthy. In his first year with the Cowboys, he has had to deal with much more than just about any other new coach would ever have to. Of course, McCarthy is no newcomer to the NFL or even being charged with coaching an entire football program. Prior to joining up with Dallas, McCarthy was head coach for the Green Bay Packers from 2006 to 2018. During his time there, he was able to bring the Packers up to par with some of the best teams in the league, even leading them to a Super Bowl win3.
While it’s certainly a bummer to see the Cowboys start off the first half of the season so poorly, we in Dallas look forward to seeing how the next eight games go. There’s ample evidence that McCarthy will be able to turn the team around and even find great uses for the backup players in now down the road. Only time will tell though, so we’ll keep you updated as the season progresses.
