Favre Says McCarthy "Will Be Good For Dak"


FRISCO, Texas – The Cowboys have yet to make any announcements regarding a new coach. But that hasn't stopped the rest of the world from commenting on reports that Mike McCarthy will be the next coach of the Cowboys.

McCarthy's time in Green Bay was spent mostly with Aaron Rodgers, but his first QB in Green Bay wasn't too bad himself. Hall of Famer Brett Favre had plenty to say about McCarthy on his SiriusXM NFL Radio show.

"Well I think, you know, Mike first of all has been around the block, at least with quarterbacks, dating back to Kansas City, one of his first jobs ever when Joe Montana was there (in 1993-94)," Favre said. "So he knows quarterbacks. And I think what he'll do, based on what he's done in the past, as he – you know, I'm sure he knows a lot about Dak but not the ins and outs, what his likes and dislikes are, only what you see from the outside.

"I think when he really examines and studies Dak, you know, Mike has his philosophy as far as offense is concerned and I don't think that's going to change greatly, but I do think what he'll do is try to incorporate what Dak feels very comfortable with, what he does better, you know, in terms of maybe what Mike likes to call maybe is not exactly what's great for Dak.

"And I go back to when Mike Holmgren and I first started working together (in Green Bay), Mike called plays that Joe Montana and Steve Young ran very well that maybe I didn't read as well or was very good at executing. And so he had to adjust. And I think that's exactly what Mike McCarthy will do with Dak. He'll find a way to make it work for both."
