Cowboys coach Mike McCarthy, who returned to the facility Thursday after clearing COVID-19 protocols, is feeling good. He’s feeling good about his team, too, ahead of Sunday’s game at Washington.

He declared the Cowboys are “going to win this game. I’m confident in that.”

McCarthy’s quote quickly made it to Washington, where it surely will be played, posted and noted.

“The only guarantee in this world is death and taxes,” Washington defensive lineman Jonathan Allen said in response, via Nicki Jhabvala of The Washington Post.

McCarthy was unconcerned about riling up the Washington Football Team.

“What am I supposed to say?” McCarthy added. “I fully expect to win every game I’ve ever competed in.”

The Cowboys lead the division by two games with five to play, but they play Washington twice in the next two weeks. That means both teams control their own fate.

  1. Grown men ,both players and coaches, making millions and acting like 4th graders on the playground. It’s great fun to watch.

  2. Must be hard to be one of those people who are laughed at no matter what they say or do. Even harder to know as a leader that nobody respects you. Can’t imagine how McCarthy copes with it.

  3. I’ll be there and I guarantee it will be LOUD!! The Cowboys have to travel to DC and deal with more than just the HOT WFT… they have to deal with the crowd, I guess we’ll see what happens. HTTR!!

  4. Wft is a much better team than a lot of you think, hope the boys go home crying and whining.

  5. NEXTGEN stats say that 59% of the coaches or players that predict a victory are right. So I like this call.
