Columnist dispels Bill Belichick-Cowboys rumors

Mac Engel, a writer with the Fort Worth Star-Telegram doesn't think that Jerry Jones, the general manager and owner of the Dallas Cowboys, would remove head coach Mike McCarthy this winter and replace him with former New England Patriots coach Bill Belichick.  

"Jerry has already taken this route, and he is unlikely to do so again. Not even for a Belichick," Engel clarified in a Friday article.  

"Jerry has worked with a Belichick type before, with the man who happens to be his mentor."  

The mentor in question is none other than Bill Parcells, the legendary head coach of the New York Giants who won two Super Bowls with the team and was also head coach of Dallas from 2003 to 2006. 

Engel pointed out that in Parcells' tenure, the Cowboys did not win a single postseason game.  

Knowledgeable people, including former Patriots players Scott Zolak, Julian Edelman, and Rob Ninkovich, have recently recommended that Jones should go.

After Belichick in the event that McCarthy's 12-5 Cowboys lose their home wild-card playoff game against the 9-8 Green Bay Packers on Sunday.  

Some even think McCarthy might be fired this winter if Dallas fails to advance to the conference championship game for the first time since January 1996.
