The NFL is fining Cowboys head coach Mike McCarthy and docking a 2023 OTA practice. This comes after an OTA practice this year violated non-contact rules. Mike Garafolo reported Thursday that this would be the second time Mike McCarthy was fined as the Cowboys Head Coach.
This isn’t the first time Mike McCarthy has been fined:
Per Todd Archer:
For the second straight year Mike McCarthy was fined by the NFL for having practices that were deemed too physical, according to owner Jerry Jones. After being fined $50,000 last year, McCarthy was docked $100,000 and the Cowboys have lost an organized team activity for 2023.
All and all The Dallas Cowboys may certainly be dealing with the weight of “Super Bowl expectations.” That pressure was on full display as Mike McCarthy was fined for something extremely avoidable. This is not the first time a team has been fined for this type of violation. The Chicago Bears lost a practice this off-season for something very similar.
