Cowboys QB Dak Prescott won’t reach out to Aaron Rodgers about Mike McCarthy

Dak Prescott, Aaron Rodgers, Mike McCarthy, Cowboys

Mike McCarthy is the new head coach of the Dallas Cowboys, but the veteran spent the first 13 seasons of his NFL head-coaching career at the helm for the Green Bay Packers from 2006 through 2018.

For 11 of those years, Aaron Rodgers was the starting quarterback, so if anyone knows McCarthy, it’s Rodgers.

The thing is, Rodgers and McCarthy did not exactly have a great relationship, and McCarthy’s dismissal from the Packers after a 4-7-1 start in 2018 had something to do with his tenuous relationship with the signal-caller.

For that reason, you might expect Cowboys quarterback Dak Prescott to have some qualms about McCarthy, but Prescott isn’t using McCarthy’s shaky connection with Rodgers as a basis for anything and won’t be reaching out to Rodgers for any advice:

“No, not at all,” Prescott said when asked if he would talk to Rodgers, per Josh Alper of Pro Football Talk. “I don’t care to get a feel from somebody else off of their judgment or their relationship. I know relationships are completely individual and I don’t even want to warp my mind off of what somebody else thinks.”

Prescott already had a short conversation with McCarthy after McCarthy was hired earlier this month, and Prescott said that McCarthy has “the formula, he has got the way to do it and that is enough for me.”

We’ll see if McCarthy can elevate the team in a way that Jason Garrett couldn’t.

Dallas was expected by many to be a darkhorse Super Bowl contender in 2019, but it won just eight games and missed the playoffs altogether.
