The Dallas Cowboys fell victim to another early exit in the postseason this year, falling in upset fashion at the hands of the Green Bay Packers in the Wild Card round this past weekend. This led many to assume some big changes could be coming this offseason. But it now appears that may not be the case.

The Cowboys went into the playoffs with expectations to potentially break their lengthy streak of seasons without a conference championship appearance, a streak that dates all the way back to their 1995 Super Bowl-winning season.

Instead, the Packers led by Jordan Love were able to move the ball at will against a Cowboys defense that had been excellent all season long.

The blame obviously went to several people within the organization. But perhaps nobody felt the heat more than Cowboys head coach Mike McCarthy.

Naturally, many Cowboys fans were calling for McCarthy to lose his job after the team’s latest postseason failure. However, the Cowboys will instead be staying the course when it comes to McCarthy.

According to ESPN’s Adam Schefter, the Cowboys will be bringing back McCarthy for the 2024 season.

As you would expect, fans argued on social media about whether this is thr right move for the future of the team.

This can obviously be debated on both sides. In defense of McCarthy, he has helped the Cowboys reach the postseason in three consecutive years with a 12-5 record in each of the last three regular seasons.

However, the shortcomings in the postseason for Dallas have obviously been hard to ignore. And it can certainly be argued that McCarthy has had some of the most talented teams in the league each of the last three years, only to come up short each year.

Regardless, this decision shouldn’t come as much of a surprise. Cowboys owner Jerry Jones has always been known to be reluctant to make a change at head coach. And it sure seems like nothing had changed on that front from him with McCarthy’s return.
