Should the Cowboys Replace Mike McCarthy with Dan Quinn?

TJ Houshmandzadeh: "Dan Quinn is average. As a head coach, he's 43-42. That's average to me. You're a .500 coach. What makes him a better coach than Mike McCarthy? Mike McCarthy isn't average, his record states that that's not the case. Dan Quinn had a big lead in the Super Bowl, he lost it. Did he turn Dallas' defense around? He did, I give him credit for that. He put Micah Parsons in situations that people didn't believe Parsons could be successful in. But why would I replace Mike McCarthy with somebody that's proven over time to be an average head coach? I'm not doing that."
LaVar Arrington: "To me, this defense would not have been as good if Dan Quinn wasn't the defensive coordinator. I understand the idea of looking at it from a head coach's perspective, but what if you're saying the balance of keeping Dan Quinn there and getting this defense up to par is a symptom of keeping a team going in the right direction, and not sliding back?"


LaVar Arrington, TJ Houshmandzadeh, and Plaxico Burress discuss the head coaching carousel in the NFL. The guys examine the state of the Dallas Cowboys after their first-round exit and look into their possibility of changing at Head Coach. The guys debate if the Cowboys should promote Dan Quinn to Head Coach in order to prevent him from leaving for elsewhere.
