McCarthy didn’t criticize the “Hard Knocks” experience by any means, but he did admit that his players will benefit from not having an entire camera crew at their meetings and practices.
“I think the ‘Hard Knocks’ experience was a good one. I thought they were very professional. I thought we worked very well together,” McCarthy said, via Fort Worth Star-Telegram. “But it’s different having that in your space. And I just don’t think you get a maximum result in a group dynamic activity and the least conversations and interactions with that type of environment.”
In other words, people change the way they behave when there are a bunch of cameras in the room.
“There are things you’re able to do and say in a particular space that are important to the individuals in that space and you clearly wouldn’t say them probably exactly like how you would, or maybe behave exactly how you would, or maybe respond exactly how you would,” McCarthy continued. “I think that’s human nature when there’s 15 cameras in the room.”
That would explain why McCarthy showed off his dance moves on “Hard Knocks.”

Although the Cowboys are eager to have some privacy, McCarthy dismissed the idea that “Hard Knocks” slowed down their progress as a team.
The Cowboys will start the 2021 season on the road against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. That showdown is less than a week away.
