Dak Prescott sounds off on questions about Mike McCarthy's job security

Dak Prescott has made it clear that he is not a fan of hearing people questioning Mike McCarthy's job security ahead of the Dallas Cowboys and Tampa Bay Buccaneers wild-card game. In back-to-back years, McCarthy led the Cowboys to 12-win seasons.

But 12 months ago, the Cowboys lost against the San Francisco 49ers in the wild-card round. Now, the Cowboys are again starting the postseason from the wild-card round and some feel McCarthy could be out as the Cowboys head coach if the team doesn't make a strong playoff run.

“Back-to-back 12 win [seasons] in y’all tell me how long and we’re talking about a guy’s job in jeopardy? That just shows you when you play for this organization what comes with it. That’s why it’s important to create these walls around us, create this safe place in our locker room.

Understanding what matters is the men that go out there and get in between the lines and put the work in throughout the week for us to go out and win," Prescott said, per Jori Epstein.

Sean Payton is ready to return to coaching and Cowboys owner Jones wanted in the past to hire Payton.

But when Jones was asked about McCarthy's job security, the Cowboys owner insisted McCarthy's job wasn't on the line going into the playoffs. "No. I don’t even want to. No. That’s it. I don’t need to go into all the pluses or minuses.

I’ve got a lot more to evaluate Mike McCarthy on than this playoff game. I can’t tell you how much confidence I’ve got in Mike and our coaching staff of being on top of where we are with this team right now.

They’ve got every nuance," Jones said, when asked about McCarthy's job security. The Cowboys will be taking on the Buccaneers on Monday Night Football in Tampa Bay.
