Mike McCarthy

How Safe Is McCarthy?

Barring a complete and total collapse, it’s hard to imagine Mike McCarthy not coaching in Green Bay next season. His boss, general manager Ted Thompson has the patience of Job. He’s gone to the playoffs for seven consecutive years. And he still has over $15 million left on a guaranteed contract that runs through 2018. So what would it take for McCarthy to

Epic Fail For Packers

Here’s some good news following a brutal 31-26 home loss to the under .500 Indianapolis Colts – the Packers aren’t peaking too early this season and there won’t be any finger pointing. That’s because Green Bay has now lost two consecutive games and everybody – and I do mean everybody – had a hand in

No Treat For Packers

It sure felt like the Halloween for most of Sunday afternoon at Lambeau Field. The injury-depleted Packers were almost unrecognizable and Aaron Rodgers was wearing an Aaron Rodgers costume, circa 2014. And then it suddenly felt like the middle of January as the defense came up small with the game on the line. On the road

A Tale Of Two Halves

This is actually the second draft of my postgame review. I started writing the first draft at halftime with the Packers up 31-3. After watching Mike McCarthy for over a decade, I should’ve known better. As per usual, the head coach played not to lose, and if not for a key scramble by quarterback Aaron

Offense Will Be OK

It’s easy to panic after Sunday night. Heck, you wouldn’t be a fan if you aren’t panicking at least a little after Sunday night. The offense, which hasn’t been good for nearly a year, hit rock bottom in a nationally televised game against a division rival. But as bleak as things may appear, I wouldn’t

McCarthy Likes His Plays

It’s a good thing Aaron Rodgers is the best quarterback in the National Football League and wide receiver Jordy Nelson is making a strong recovery from major knee surgery because Mike McCarthy doesn’t seem the least bit interested in making changes to an offense that was borderline inept for the majority of last season. Here’s

Surprise! Clements Still Around

How is Adam Sandler a movie star? Did anybody really watch the television show Castle? Is Donald Trump actually the presumptive Republican nominee for President of the United States? Why is Tom Clements still a member of the Green Bay Packers’ coaching staff? These are just some of the many questions that keep me up

10 Years: Milestone Or Millstone?

Nearly 500 men have been head coaches in the National Football League. Only about 10 percent lasted for more than 10 years with the same franchise. Mike McCarthy is about to join that rather exclusive list. Whether that’s a good thing is debatable. Hall of Famers Bill Walsh and Bill Parcells both opined that no head coach

McCarthy Needs To Step Up

Mike McCarthy talks about the importance of players improving from year to year. Well, nobody needs to improve more next season than the Packers coach, who had an awful 2015. Here are some of the lowlights – in a very depressing timeline: January – In one of the greatest choke jobs in NFL history, the Packers blew
