The season for the Dallas Cowboys once again ends prematurely at the hands of the San Francisco 49ers, and they're heading into another offseason of uncertainty. There are several high profile free agents on the roster who may not be back for next season, while the coaching staff has already seen a major shakeup with the departure of several faces. 

However, head coach Mike McCarthy isn't going anywhere, and in his words, team owner and general manager Jerry Jones doesn't want him to go anywhere for quite a while. But what do pundits think? 

According to a recent list from Bleacher Report, McCarthy is No. 2 on their list of NFL coaches on the hot seat: 

  1. "This isn't to say that Jones didn't say that (he wants him in town as like as Tom Landry was). Or that McCarthy has done a bad job. But racking up regular-season wins isn't the goal in Dallas. Neither is making the playoffs. The aim is the same every year: win the Super Bowl. The Cowboys haven't even played in an NFC Championship Game in nearly three decades, and McCarthy is 1-2 in the postseason.
  2. If McCarthy's squad makes another early exit from the playoffs in 2023 (or misses them altogether), it may not be his team anymore."

How much longer do you believe that McCarthy has with the Cowboys?
