    I wasn't too excited when I heard the news, but McCarthy is waaaay better than Garrett so I am looking forward to next season.

    How about because Jerry offered him the most money (if the case) and was he really in demand?

    I'm genuinely interested to know what was McCarthy's record without Rodgers at QB?

    Reid, Tomlin and Payton all have strong records when working with leftovers whilst McCarthy...was probably too busy enjoying a back massage during a team meeting!

    Yeah, but other teams actually value the backup QB position. He won't be able to do that here if our starter goes out.

    Glazer says that Jerry gave McCarthy control over his coaching hires. I believe there may be some concession in Jones, but only because I believe Glazer is one of the best. If Jerry is going to change, it's now. We'll see, of course.

    You can expect that philosophy to change if Jerry actually allows McCarthy to bring in his personnel and WCO (and overall) football philosophy. In that system you keep a ready "stable" of quarterbacks in the wings. They don't have to be the best but you develop what you do have properly in the wings. We'll see. I hope that happens and that actually does change where the "anointing" and "one and done stop shopping" stops and we start to address players as "football players" instead of "Family". Even what we have now McCarthy can develop into game readiness. You'll see the difference in the team structure soon after the draft. Again, that is if Jerry will allow McCarthy to make those changes along with the other coaches who will have the same mindset. Very unlike Jason Garrett and what Jones had running with Garrett where nothing was properly developed at all.

    I am starting to believe that Jerry has given some real power to someone who deserves it.

    LOVE IT!!!

    I was so sick of watching Rod's defense get abused every week........how many times do backups look like All-pros against this defense.:facepalm:

    And the old relic is finally out of the draft room, I was so sick and tired of him drafting busts after busts and saying "hey stud".:mad:

    McCarthy aint no puppet, word is he got full control over the coaching staff......gave no concessions, something you said Jerry would never do.

    As far as results go, the bar is not very high thanks to Garrett. It took him 10 years to win 2 Wildcard games, so that is an average of 1 Wildcard win every 5 years. I am pretty sure Big Mike can beat that mark, dont you;)

    I guess what is confusing all of us is that you say the other teams in the NFC North were all happy to see him go because his plays were so predictable, yet Green Bay still won the division the vast majority of the time?

    So why were the division rivals happy to see McCarthy leave when the Packers still won the division almost every year, despite the predictable play calling?

    We are all having a hard time following your logic here, why would the division rivals care when they still lost the division most years:huh:

    Exactly, Jerry finally decided to change some of his ways. It is reported that McCarthy made no concessions on his staff, he has full control. You dont get that if you are a puppet.

    Plus, other teams were calling McCarthy including the Giants who wanted a second interview but were too late. So this notion that he was desperate and would take the job under any conditions is crap, he had other options and other teams that were interested in him.

    This is why I was rooting for losses with Garrett, I dont care if you called me a hater or a troll, I knew the only way we would get a legit HC like McCarthy was if Garrett was gone and the only way to get Garrett out was missing the playoffs. So yeah, I happy as can be right now that we lost to Philly's practice squad.:D

    Glad Garrett is gone but McCarthy is not the answer.

    Offense and defense better not regress, but not hopeful.

    I guess it's par for the course from the same people who kept Garrett for that long.

    If Mike McCarthy is truly not a puppet. We should be a different team next year. We have over 30 free agents, McCarthy is a West Coast offensive coach, Nolan is more of a 3/4 attacking defense and the Garrett guys will either retire or fade in the background. Good or bad the Cowboys will be able to tell if this is McCarthy's baby or the Joneses.

    I don't hate McCarthy but his ring means about as much as Garrett's would have if he had managed to stay out of the way and win the big game. The year he won the Super Bowl, Rodgers had a practically flawless second half of a season.

    I loathe Rodgers more than most people, but nobody could deny that he "woke up" and molded himself into something of a legend for the next half season. He became just the third player to pass for 1000 yards in the post season that year.

    And stayed awake to win MVP in 2011. But something funny happened. The 2011 Packers became the only team in NFL history to go 15–1 and not win a playoff game! Why? His receivers dropped six passes. His defense had 37 points dropped on them. Coaching problems when it mattered most!

    I am not optimistic about this teams chances to win the big one. We don't have an MVP caliber quarterback to overcome a McCarthy or a Garrett. Welcome to five more years of mediocrity, Cowboys fans!
