Green Bay Packers fire head coach Mike McCarthy

Packers fire coach Mike McCarthy after another loss Packers part ways with Mike McCarthy

The Green Bay Packers fired coach Mike McCarthy on Sunday.

Sunday's 20-17 loss to the Cardinals - who entered the game with a 2-9 record - dropped the Packers to 4-7-1 and dealt a crippling blow to the team's chances of making the playoffs.

It was a shocking, blowout loss, and McCarthy was outcoached by Tom Coughlin again to double down on the 2007 NFC title game loss to the same team, then with Brett Favre at QB for Green Bay. McCarthy, in his prime with the Packers, was considered a terrific offensive mind. Aaron Rodgers Joey Harrington, Daunte Culpepper and Cleo Lemon.

"Aaron can pretty much do anything with the ball". The offensive line is a mess more often than it is a plus. McDaniels' innovativeness paired with Tom Brady's skill and command for the offense has led to unmatched success.

Sunday's loss to the Cards was the final straw for the Packers organization with McCarthy as the long-time head coach was sacked.

'As a result, I made the hard decision to relieve Mike McCarthy of his role as head coach, effective immediately'. Murphy said the process of hiring the storied franchise's next head coach would begin immediately. For now, though, with the Packers severely underachieving and McCarthy unable to find answers against strong opponents or weak ones, his departure made sense. Even Rodgers fighting through a knee injury he suffered in the opener was nowhere close to excusing their level of play this season. "But we missed a number of opportunities throughout the game".

Whatever Putin's true objective are, the Russians seem increasingly focused on making things as turbulent as possible for Ukraine. The vessels were stopped from entering the Kerch Strait and confronted by Russian FSB border guards.

"I hate to repeat myself, but it's applicable".

If the Packers were going to show the National Football League they weren't as bad as their record indicated, Rodgers would have hit Davante Adams in stride for a 59-yard touchdown late in the second quarter.

- Who is to blame most for the firing? The 42-year-old shows up on just about every list of head-coaching options, and it stands to reason Green Bay would be no different.

And they played like it. When you watched McCarthy's Packers in recent years, however, things looked stale and out of sync. Is it bad luck? It's likely he'll have a high draft pick to work with, and Green Bay will also have an additional Day 1 selection from the New Orleans Saints. And now that the team has been eliminated from playoff contention in embarrassing fashion, it won't be a surprise if McCarthy is fired on Monday as a result.

The Jets, who lost their sixth in a row in ignominious fashion at Tennessee on Sunday, nearly certainly will be letting go of Todd Bowles soon.

Kirk will also need to be replaced at punt returner.

Troy Aikman just went off on a reporter accusing him of being "cliche" for defending Mike McCarthy. clapping back at the guy and saying, "Is that cliche enough for ya?!"
