Mike McCarthy does not see his future with the Cowboys as an issue

The Cowboys were the only home team to lose in the offseason wildcard round. They were the only betting favorite to lose.

As much as they seem to want to blame officials for their losses to the 49ers, the Cowboys have only themselves to blame. With 14 penalties, one turnover, five allowed sacks, 3.7 yards per. rush and some unmanageable play, the Cowboys were lucky that it was even a game with 14 seconds left.

However, it does not look like anyone will pay for the loss with their job.

Coach Mike McCarthy said he has met owner Jerry Jones twice - once immediately after the game and again Monday - and does not see his future with the team as an issue.

"We had very positive conversations, and just focus is on the evaluation process," McCarthy said via Todd Archer of ESPN.

Jones said on Sunday that a change of coach "was not on the table", and Vice President Stephen Jones repeated it in his radio program on Monday.

The Cowboys are 18-15 in McCarthy's two seasons, and if he really returns, McCarthy will go into 2022 on the hottest of hot seats.

"I think for people in this profession, it's accepted," McCarthy said. "It's part of the job. I understand. I understand why you are asking the question. That's part of the job. You have a job to do and I have a job to do here today in answering your questions appropriately and respectfully. But yeah, I do not put much into it, because I personally know what I put into this.

"I understand what's going on here every day. I know how to win. I know how to win in this league. I know how to win playoff games. I know how to win a championship. So it has I have great confidence in. What we have built here in two seasons, I feel really good about, and I think you just stay true to it. The difficult thing is the personal. We all have children, so that's the part "I do not like it. I hope people have respect for it."

The Packers won the Super Bowl in 2010 with McCarthy as their head coach. But in his 10 seasons ago, he is 5-7 in the offseason, and his team missed the offseason three of his last four seasons.

McCarthy is 29-31-1 his last four seasons as head coach, even though Aaron Rodgers only played seven games in 2017 and Dak Prescott only five games in 2020. But 2010 was a long, long time ago and McCarthy can not get the Cowboys closer to Promise Land in 2022, he is unlikely to have a fourth season in Dallas.
