We'll look back and probably point to McCarthy as why Rodgers will likely end his career with only 1 ring.

 

Yeah, the GM also could have made some better moves.

Isn't there a non-boob coach anywhere they can get to coach that team?

It is quite surprising in a billion dollar industry how few coaches actually know what they're doing. And most of those don't sit at home waiting for the phone to ring.

Or Mike Shanahan?

 

He's been out of the NFL since 2013 for a reason. Packers have to go with an innovative young head coach not the same bang your head against a brick wall routine.

Funny thing is McCarthy probably won't be unemployed for long. After all look at his "stats"! The playoff appearances, winning percentage, etc. Literally difficult for the more incompetent franchises in the league to ignore.

Cardinals & Jets come to mind...

thist x1000. i'm always surprised how there seems to be like...15 older guys who just get recycled around the league from coordinator position to head coach to fired back to coordinator position over and over and over and over. you'd think more owners would get tired of bringing in boring, failed known quantities and try to strike out for younger more innovative coaches. it's worked well for the Rams and (mostly, if you're not a Howard owner) the Bears.

Pretty much. You have who is considered by some the greatest QB of all time on your team and still can't manage to play .500 ball, and yet teams somehow think he might be a good coach. 

 

Fox was a bad coach who benefitted from having Manning. 

McCarthy was a bad coach who benefitted from having Rodgers. 

 

If teams don't see that it's silly.

This has been coming for a long time.  However, making the change now is not going to suddenly make the Packers a contender.  They continue to be plagued by injuries, poor line play, and an inconsistent defense.  In-season firings are nothing more than a PR move.  It would have been better to stick with McCarthy until the end of the season than to replace him with Philbin.

 

Frankly, regardless of who they bring in next year, this roster needs to be blown up.

He might be back in the playoffs before the Packers.

 

They have a pretty good roster, lots of young talent in the skill positions, and no huge free agent problems the next couple years.  I think they can make the playoffs next year.

 

Better playcalling would have won them at least 3 or 4 games this season that they shouldn't have lost, and we'd be viewing this team very differently right now.

No it doesnt. A lot of the youth is still delevopling.  Rodgers, Mathews, Cobb, T. Williams and the TEs are the only oldies.

The rams are an outlier. .  the coaching system they run is not the norm and it won't work with a QB like Rodgers.  The Rams coaches actually coach on the fireld during the game and on every play.  Mcvay calls every single play and audible not Goff. You won't do that with Rodgers.  That will work with young QB's but vets like Rodgers,ben-Rivers have control over how the offense is run after the they get the play.

Browns are going to pick him up because it is the Browns and that is what they do.

 

 

I think logically  the Browns SHOULD take someone who can relate to baker and develop him. . not sure mcarthy is that guy however I think Dorsey and the owner may view him as a 'winner" who can build a high flying offense. . .:o
