ESPN -- Rank: 10
It's been this way since last season ended, and nothing has changed since, despite Jerry Jones' constant backing. McCarthy will be the most watched head coach this year because of the Sean Payton shadow and the way Jones took care of defensive coordinator Dan Quinn. It's as if the Cowboys did not win 12 games last year, as the residue from the playoff loss to the San Francisco 49ers has not disappeared. To his credit, McCarthy has not allowed the outside discussions of his job to impact how he coaches. Players say he has remained the same with them in temperament and in his demands.

The bad news: Sean Payton won't be the coach until at least October. And the offensive line, aside from Zack Martin, woof.
Nugget to remember: No team hurt itself on offense more than the Cowboys a season ago. According to TruMedia, Dallas' offense ranked 32nd in offensive EPA lost to penalties one season after it finished third-best in that category. The Cowboys were also the most penalized team in football.
