Green Bay Packers Fire Head Coach Mike McCarthy Immediately After Loss

  • Say Cheese Packers react to Mc Carthy firing Philbin promotion

The Packers fired coach Mike McCarthy on Sunday after falling 20-17 to the Cardinals. I know my role is to play quarterback, to the best of my abilities'.

"Pumped. Big time", Kumerow said. Green Bay finished 7-9 and missed the playoffs in 2017, when Rodgers missed extensive time with a broken collarbone.

"We didn't play well today", McCarthy said. The Vikes are middle of the pack with 22.9 points per game, but probably more important to his résumé is his quarterbacks coach gig with the Eagles from 2016-2017.

He may not be the sexy hire that Browns fans are hoping for, but there is the potential of a fresh start being exactly what McCarthy needed.

As I've said and written many times before (here, here, here, here, here, and here), McCarthy's Achilles heel as a head coach and an offensive play-designer was his rigid inflexibility and inability to design passing concepts that would regularly beat even the most rudimentary of defenses.

Troy Aikman, cliche machine, says Mike McCarthy deserved better. "But if you're looking to simulate what they've done in Los Angeles, I think John DeFilippo is worth taking a look at". In fact, a "regressing" Rodgers has thrown 21 touchdowns overall this season to just one interception.

Not long after those words were spoken, team president Mark Murphy released a statement announcing that McCarthy was gone.

McCarthy was let go Sunday following the Packers at home loss against Arizona.

Offensive coordinator Joe Philbin, who has three-plus years of head-coaching experience from 2012-15 with the Miami Dolphins, will serve as interim head coach.


McCarthy departs with a record of 125 wins, 77 losses and two ties.

FanSided is now reporting that the Browns are "working" on hiring the former Packers' head coach.

Many had publicly criticized McCarthy for what they perceived as his out-dated style. Harbaugh was a dominant victor in his National Football League coaching experience.

Still, the Packers were set up to finish well against the Falcons, whom the Packers beat 48-21 in Atlanta behind Rodgers in the divisional playoffs seven years before.

McCarthy will find another job soon enough. "3-4 years too late, (in my opinion)", Sharpe said on Twitter. "As a result, I made the hard decision to relieve Mike McCarthy of his role as head coach, effective immediately". Aaron Rodgers Joey Harrington, Daunte Culpepper and Cleo Lemon.

Rodgers isn't without fault, but he shouldn't have to shoulder all the blame, either.

'We're just not on the same page consistently, ' Rodgers told reporters.

Second-year pro Chad Williams (113 yards, 11 receptions) could help the Cardinals if he is able to return from an ankle injury that has kept him out of action the last four games.

After that defeat, criticism of McCarthy's play-calling seemed to grow louder each season.
