Mike McCarthy makes surprisingly bold claim ahead of Washington game

Mike McCarthy coaching the Cowboys

Mike McCarthy has returned to the Dallas Cowboys after he cleared COVID-19 protocols, and the head coach is oozing confidence heading into Sunday’s game against Washington.

The Cowboys have lost three of their past games after beginning the season 6-1. That has led many to question whether they are contenders or pretenders, but McCarthy clearly is not concerned. He made a bold claim while speaking with reporters on Wednesday.

McCarthy was then asked if he is worried about creating bulletin-board material for Washington by guaranteeing victory. He said he fully expects to win every game, so he doesn’t see the harm in saying it.

Even if McCarthy had zero intention of knocking his opponent, there’s no doubt Ron Rivera’s team will try to use the comments as motivation. NFL players and coaches are always looking for an edge.

McCarthy is known for his wild motivational tactics, which seemed to work at least once already this season. Perhaps his moxie heading into Sunday’s game will rub off on Cowboys players.
