Lack Of Preparation
In 2020, the Cowboys players almost had an internal revolt against McCarthy’s coaching staff. That’s because they felt like they weren’t preparing properly for games. The head coach also made a brazen statement about his interview for the job. He openly admitted that he lied about his preparation for the new season.
“Well, I need to confess: I told Jerry that I watched every play of the 2019 season, but I wanted the job,” McCarthy said (via Insider). “I haven’t watched every play of the season, but you do what you gotta do, right?” It’s no wonder that they’re blowing it in the playoffs if that’s his attitude.
