Cowboys coach Mike McCarthy and owner Jerry Jones had a lengthy meeting to discuss Sunday’s blowout loss to the Packers before Jones confirmed that McCarthy would return to coach his team in 2024.
McCarthy said today that he and Jones talked about the Cowboys’ situation and where they’re headed, with a focus on why Sunday’s game went so poorly.
“It was a long meeting, I think we probably lasted a little over three hours, we talked about a number of topics, the first topic was obviously the disappointment of the end of the season,” said McCarthy.
McCarthy acknowledged that Sunday’s results were far from good enough.
“One team played at its level and the other didn’t. Unfortunately, we didn’t. So I’m very disappointed with our performance, but I’m just not playing to our standards,” McCarthy said.
Still, McCarthy said he’s confident in the Cowboys’ direction. Jones gave him job security, and now he has to get to work trying to build a team that will still be alive in the playoffs a year from now.
