The Dallas Cowboys hired Mike McCarthy because he’s a Super Bowl winning coach, and they believe he can bring back a winning tradition.

The last time the Dallas Cowboys had a Super Bowl winning coach Bill Parcells was leading the way and was in the process of building a Super Bowl caliber team.

The Big Tuna took the hapless Cowboys from three straight 5-11 seasons to a playoff berth, and he found good players along the way like Tony Romo, and future Hall of Famers DeMarcus Ware and Jason Witten.

Parcells retired in 2007. And since then, the Cowboys haven’t come close to having a Super Bowl caliber coach. Dallas had a few 13 win seasons by mediocre coaches, Wade Phillips and Jason Garrett, but they’ve never really had a winner.

But with the hiring of Mike McCarthy, the Cowboys found a coach that won a Super Bowl and now have a coach that is beyond capable of bringing back the winning culture that has escaped this storied franchise.

Big Mac (As I love to affectionately call him ) coached another storied franchise (the Green Bay Packers) for 13 seasons, won a total of 135 games, coached in four NFC Championship Games, and won a Super Bowl. And Big Mac coached two of the best and most talented, generational quarterbacks in NFL history with Brett Favre and Aaron Rodgers.

Simply put, Big Mac did his job and kept the Packers winning tradition going.

But after being unceremoniously fired late in 2018 by the Packers, Big Mac became one of the hottest coaching candidates out there and the one Jerry Jones coveted the most for his star studded roster.

Along with Dallas’ front office doing a good job of drafting (and Big Mac having a voice in personnel decisions), Big Mac should at least be able to take this team an NFC Championship game.

Tom Brady and Bill Belichick played in nine Super Bowls and won six of them since 2001, the New England Patriots have now surpassed Dallas in Super Bowl wins and Super Bowl appearances. Once upon a time, Dallas had the most Super Bowl appearances and was tied with the Pittsburgh Steelers with Super Bowl wins at five.

That was way back in 1995 when Dallas won its last Super Bowl. It’s been 25 long and agonizing years watching other NFL teams surpass Dallas in Super Bowl wins. The only record Dallas currently holds is 20 consecutive winning seasons. Hopefully, the New England Patriots will have a losing season. They’re close to catching Dallas.

Side Note: As America’s Team, Dallas is supposed to brag about winning Super Bowls on a regular basis, not bragging about being the most valued sports franchise in the world. Being worth $5 billion dollars is supposed to happen because they win…

Big Mac is that coach who can duplicate, or at least continue, what legendary coach Tom Landry started and what Hall of Fame head coach Jimmy Johnson improved on in the early 1990’s.

For starters, Big Mac has one of the best up and coming signal callers in the game in Dak Prescott. Although Big Mac doesn’t get enough credit for it, but Big Mac developed a young Aaron Rodgers into one of the best quarterbacks this league has ever seen.

Big Mac can do the same with Dak (who had a career year in passing yards, 4902, and touchdown passes, 30) and take his game to another level. Dak improved tremendously with Jon Kitna as his quarterback coach and with Kellen Moore as the offensive coordinator. Besides, Big Mac takes pride in developing quarterbacks.

And since the quarterback position is the most important position on a team, its only an added bonus to have a coach that has the gift to make his franchise quarterback that much better. This will definitely help this franchise get back to its winning ways. Because a coach and his quarterback are tied to the help, fair or not.

Further, a young coach like Big Mac (56) has a lot of coaching left in the tank and is an offensive juggernaut that will use every single offensive weapon on Dallas’ roster to its fullest capabilities-something the previous regimen shied away from.

If Jerry can stay with COACH CLAP-A-LOT (Jason Garrett) for nine years of mediocrity, I know he’ll stick with Big Mac after he wins this franchise a Super Bowl and many, many games.
