Mike McCarthy Will Bring Version Of Packers Offensive Scheme To Cowboys In 2023

According to Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones, head coach Mike McCarthy will use a version of his former Green Bay Packers' offensive scheme as the team's play-caller in 2023.

Following the Cowboys' loss to the San Francisco 49ers in the Divisional Round of the playoffs, McCarthy took over play-calling duties from Kellen Moore, who was let go and swiftly hired by the Los Angeles Chargers as their new offensive coordinator.

McCarthy's Packers scheme worked great with Aaron Rodgers in his prime years, however, it fell off in the last three years of his job with the team.

McCarthy came under a lot of criticism for his offensive design having very little pre-snap motion to catch opposing defenses off guard. As a result, it's safe to say the Cowboys' offense can't be expected to surpass this year's stats in 2023, unless McCarthy has some new tricks up his sleeve. 

In addition, he'll have Dak Prescott, who's good, but he's no prime Aaron Rodgers. It's too early to say, but we have a feeling the team is going to be missing Kellen Moore next season.
