Cowboys head coach Mike McCarthy is “raring and ready to go” against the Washington Football Team, per Jerry Jones. Jones acknowledged that Dallas is basically the team everyone loves to hate and see lose- with the longtime owner saying that he embraces that.
Jones feels that McCarthy guaranteeing a victory added extra excitement to the game against Washington, which already had major divisional intrigue attached to it. Jones is right. A lot more people will tune into this game between the Cowboys and the Washington Football Team to see how the two teams go at each other.
The only problem with guaranteeing a win is what it could potentially provide for the opponent. The Washington Football Team seems to always be the forgotten team in the NFC East, but this is their big chance to not only damage the Cowboys' hopes of winning the division while also increasing their own chances.
Washington was already motivated to stick it to Jerry Jones and Mike McCarthy. Now, thanks to McCarthy, they have added motivation. But Jones is fine with that.
Sunday will be very interesting.
