- But some fans think he is responsible for the team’s lack of discipline and want him out
Just one game into the preseason, Cowboys fans are losing patience with coach Mike McCarthy as their team committed a whopping 17 penalties and lost to the Broncos on Saturday night.
McCarthy’s frustration was: captured on video less than five minutes into the third quarter, and the video of the Dallas coach scornfully snapping his hand after the team took the 11th penalty, sparked a storm of tweets criticizing the one-time Super Bowl winner.

That context is why Cowboys fans were fed up on Saturday night; what some may have seen as a pointless preseason game, they saw as a pattern of trouble.
‘New Year same results and this is a reflection of McCarthy,’ a said.
“He can be as crazy as he wants to be, but he’s the biggest reason why this team is so undisciplined and in the end it will cost him his job.”
Despite the apparent coaching concerns surrounding McCarthy, a talented roster led by quarterback Dak Prescott is slightly ahead of the Eagles to win the NFC East.
