Jerry Jones is piping hot mad as he is sick and tired of having a talented team that comes up short in the postseason.
The Dallas Cowboys owner didn’t sound too pleased with his team’s coaching staff during an appearance on 105.3 The Fan where he told them, “I got a lot to think about regarding these coaches.”
While Jerry did not name any names, it does appear that he was taking multiple shots at the head coach.
“Let me be real clear, one of the pet peeves I have is that I don’t like this, ‘Well we’ve got to work on this in the offseason, we got to work on this.’ I don’t go for that,” Jones said.
“I want those things recognized and addressed after we play Tampa after the first game, or after we play the sixth game. I don’t want to wait until we’re sitting here with no season left to address these things we’re doing or not doing. All of that is in the mix here and a part of what I do. That’s the way I do it, as you know, the ultimate decision in these coaches is one that I have to make.”
McCarthy told reporters that his top priority this offseason is to cut down on the penalties after the team committed 14 of them against the 49ers in their Wild Card loss.
“Our No. 1 focus going forward is the penalties,” McCarthy said. “There were far too many.”
Those comments after the fact is exactly what Jones was referring to. He wanted that fixed well beforehand, not when it came time to compete for a Super Bowl.
The Cowboys won the NFC East and made the playoff for the first time since 2018, but Jerry is all about winning the big trophy, something he hasn’t experienced since 1996.
The Cowboy’s are 18-15 in two seasons under McCarthy, winning 12 games in 2021 after going 6-10 in his first season.
