Jerry Jones Makes Strong Comment About Teams Head Coach
The Dallas Cowboys may be under the most pressure of any team on wild-card weekend.
The last time they won a playoff game was in 2018 when they defeated the Seattle Seahawks.
Now, they are looking to get back in the win column against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
Facing Tom Brady in the playoffs will be a tough test for any team.
But, this Buccaneers team won eight games this season, and the Cowboys won 12.
Dallas is the better team, and they should win the game.
That is why head coach Mike McCarthy will be under the most pressure.
As his job security is already being questioned if the Cowboys do not win this game.
Owner/General Manager of the Cowboys, Jerry Jones was asked about possibly moving on from McCarthy after this season.
He was direct and to the point in his answer.
Cowboys owner Jerry Jones on @1053thefan said nothing that happens Monday night at Tampa Bay will impact Mike McCarthy’s job status.
“No. That’s it.”

This was the only answer Jones could have given heading into the game.
But, he may not feel the same if they lose.
Jones was not going to add any more pressure to his team or coach by saying McCarthy’s job could be on the line.
But, Jones has made it evident that the Cowboys need to be a viable playoff team.
Losing in the first round will not suffice.
The NFC does not seem to have a dominant team this year.
So even as the fifth seed, the Cowboys should feel confident they can make a run if they play their best ball.
All of the pressure is on McCarthy as the Cowboys get set for their Monday Night game.
It should not surprise anyone if McCarthy is gone with a Cowboys loss.
