Mike McCarthy spoke about Brett Maher’s struggles

Mike McCarthy, Cowboys head coach said this week that the most important thing for them is to have a plan with Maher moving forward, making sure he’s ready for the next game, expressing that at the end of the day, everyone has a job to do.

“He knows he has to put the ball through the uprights. And he’s been super productive and consistent for us … I think so much in this business, especially this game, you learn from your experiences when it doesn’t go the way you like, as opposed to the success of it. So just like our whole football team, we came out of Washington and got punched in the jaw, and I think we clearly responded. I think he definitely has that in him.”
