Yes, Big Mac needs to win some playoff games for sure. But IMO, he deserves a lot more credit than he gets around here.
So let’s look at resumes of McCarthy vs Payton:
- AGE: 59
- Regular Season Record- 154-96-2 (.615)
- Record at Dallas- 29-19 (.604)
- Playoff Record- 10-9 (.526)
- Road playoff Record: 5-4
- SB titles: 1
- AGE: 58
- Regular Season Record- 152-89-0 (.631)
- Playoff Record- 9-8 (.529)
- Road Playoff Record: 1-5
- SB Titles: 1
Sorry, I just don’t get the Sean Payton as savior thinking. The resumes are almost the same. But- Big Mac has 5 ROAD PLAYOFF WINS TO PAYTON’S 1.
Barring a collapse in the next month, Mike McCarthy is back next year. And should be.
