Dallas Cowboys has signed a deal with the former Green Bay Packers HC Mike McCarthy. McCarthy will join the team as the new head coach in 2022. Cowboys owner Jerry Jones is quite confident and thinks the Cowboys have a fair chance of winning the Super Bowl in the upcoming season.

Recently, Jones was questioned on Mike McCarthy’s job security. There were rumors of former New Orleans Saints HC Sean Payton being an optional replacement for McCarthy. Well, Jones cleared the air and said he and Payton share a good relationship, and that’s all. McCarthy has an opportunity and he can win the Super Bowl this season for the Cowboys.

Well, the 3X Super Bowl Champ, Shannon Sharpe does not agree with Jone’s statement. On the show UNDISPUTED, Sharpe said“No. I don’t see him win a Super Bowl with Jerry at the helm either, but Mike McCarthy has won a Super Bowl since the last time Jerry won one.”

Sharpe does not think acquiring McCarthy had made any difference in their chances of winning a Super Bowl. According to him, it is very foolish to hire a coach and be confused about whether he can or cannot take you to the promised land.
