Mike McCarthy’s Cowboys extension could be riding on him getting over the Jason Garrett playoff hump

His hiring by the Dallas Cowboys felt like an uninspired reach for someone flexible and familiar to ownership, and he survived the 6-10 2020 season.

In 2021, he went 12-5 and silenced Jerry Jones' Sean Payton rumors. And when Cowboys owner wanted more success in 2022

We're back again. After Sunday's 31-10 road loss to the Buffalo Bills, we don't know if the Dallas Cowboys can go any higher under Mike McCarthy.

 Still wondering how a team that dominated the Philadelphia Eagles on Dec. 10 could fade one week later against a Bills team that hasn't found its identity this season.

There's no guarantee that these Cowboys are better than the past two postseasons, so Sunday and the rest of the season should be good indicators. 

This 2023? He's led the offense to three straight playoff berths, a feat last accomplished in Dallas by Jimmy Johnson and Barry Switzer from 1991 to 1996.

 He never lost a season, finished 40-24, won the NFC East twice, went 1-2 in the playoffs, and was fired because he couldn't contend for a Super Bowl despite talented rosters.
