Will the Dallas Cowboys make a run at Bill Belichick? That’s the question on everyone’s mind following the team’s 48-32 blowout loss at home to the Green Bay Packers in the Wild Card round of the NFC playoffs on Sunday.

Before Sunday’s game was even played, NFL Media’s Ian Rapoport reported that Belichick was waiting to see what unfolded during the playoffs before making any decisions about his future. Rapoport’s comments were prescient, as he said one team tends to get blown out in the postseason unexpectedly, and that often drives the team to make a change.

This year, the Cowboys were that team, and they have to be thinking very hard about making a run at Belichick.

Bleacher Report NFL reporter Jordan Schultz reported on X Sunday that an NFL executive expected the Cowboys to pursue Belichick if the team lost to the Packers.

Pro Football Talk’s Mike Florio also said Sunday that he would expect the Cowboys to look at Belichick if they decide to move on from Mike McCarthy, who has one year left on his contract.

Despite Jerry Jones having a reputation for being impulsive and making many changes, he actually kept Jason Garrett for nine seasons despite constant questions about the former coach’s future.

You get the feeling that Jones might not strongly consider moving on from McCarthy after three straight 12-5 seasons if an option like Belichick didn’t exist. But with Belichick available, many people expect that Jones will think very hard about his options.
