Mike McCarthy’s tenure in Dallas is off to an extremely disastrous start as the Dallas Cowboys fell to 2-5 after being blown out for the second straight game.
Over a week ago, anonymous players spoke out against the coaching staff, telling NFL Network reporter Jane Slater “they just aren’t good at their jobs.”
Legendary quarterback Brett Favre shared his thoughts on the situation on Wednesday:
“I’m a little bit baffled because Mike’s pretty good at handling players and dealing with issues,” Favre said on SiriusXM NFL Radio. “Is he perfect? No one is. I think maybe, part of the problem is he’s pretty stubborn and strong-minded and a disciplinarian, but not in a way, it’s not like going to the principal. He’s just got that tough Pittsburgh mentality, which is where he’s from.”
Favre then pondered if McCarthy’s coaching style is a bad fit for the players on his roster.
“Maybe the group of guys that they have, the core group that you count on, maybe are not guys that take coaching very well. I don’t know. There’s something missing there.”
The Cowboys can silence a lot of what’s going on by delivering a huge win over the Philadelphia Eagles on Sunday.
