New Report Contradicts Claim Mike McCarthy is 'Fed up' With Cowboys

People inside the Cowboys' organization believe that rumors of Mike McCarthy being 'fed up' are overly dramatized.

This offseason has been anything but normal for the Dallas Cowboys, who claimed to be “all-in”, but their actions have spoken louder than their words.

The Cowboys didn’t do a great job of addressing the issues they had in free agency but were able to fix those spots in the 2024 NFL Draft. Also, Dallas has not given contract extensions to starting quarterback Dak Prescott or star receiver CeeDee Lamb, making fans nervous heading into training camp.

Along those same lines, head coach (Mike McCarthy) is entering the 2024 season as a lame duck, which isn’t a comforting position to be in, especially after your team lost at home in the playoffs earlier this year.

And then to make matters worse, a column published by Ty Dunne of Go Long last month started to catch fire as it highlighted what was happening inside the Cowboys organization. 

According to Dunne, a former Cowboys personnel member said “(McCarthy is) doing it the best he can, some of the people I've talked to have said that he's getting fed up with it a little bit.”

That report of McCarthy being fed up was viewed as nonsense by the Cowboys, and according to Calvin Watkins of the Dallas Morning News, people inside the franchise see things differently.

"Cowboys executives weren’t available to comment for this story, but numerous conversations with people inside the organization this offseason describe a different viewpoint of what’s occurring with McCarthy. A person with knowledge of the relationship between Cowboys executives and McCarthy characterized the Go Long story as overly dramatic."

That being said, it’s hard to figure out who is telling the truth in this situation, as there could be a gray area between McCarthy being fed up and the story being labeled overly dramatic. With the Cowboys not giving McCarthy an extension earlier this year, there could be some angst as this is a make-or-break year for Dallas.

If Dallas can't get the job done this season, McCarthy is out of a job. However, one can make a case that Jerry Jones and the Cowboys front office brass didn’t do a good job equipping the veteran head coach with the best talent to win.

Nonetheless, it will be interesting to see how everything plays out this season, as it could be the last time we see this same group together.
