Should the Green Bay Packers get rid of head coach Mike McCarthy? The answer may not be that simple. Any time a team with playoff aspirations starts off slow, there is usually something or someone to blame.Sometimes the answers are as simple as injuries to a key player or players, other times the answer is

Interesting perspectives. As with any move, it's not as simple as making it. The Packers also have to make the right decisions afterwards, or things could end up even worse. Although, I don't think the Packers will ever win another Super Bowl with McCarthy unless there is a huge talent infusion which is highly unlikely. At that point, it may be worth trying something before Rodgers retires.

Hey, your choice.

Everbody is on love with all these new, young coaches who are brining the College game to the NFL.
Lets just see who is stsnding at the end of the year.

Murphy blew it after last season.

He did a half-assed restructure.

You can hate on McCarthy all you want, not going to do any good.

Go to FB, you will have plenty of company.

It seems like the offensive system has been pretty much the same for years now, and other teams have figured it out. Being a fan looking from the outside, I can usually guess the play before the ball is snapped - so it isn't a surprise to me when the opposing defense has a solution to shutting a play down.

I'm not trying to hate on Mike, but I just feel that his tenure coaching in GB has run it's course. In today's NFL you just don't see a lot of coaches with a team for more than a few years because of what we have been experiencing - stagnant schemes and predictability.

Adding to this, I can't remember the last time we've gotten defenders to jump offsides with the hard count. This year and last year in particular it's been incredibly infrequent, and that was a notable part of our offense for years that gave us free deep shots.

Well, when the defense knows beyond a shadow of a doubt that you're not going to snap the ball until you've wound the clock down under five seconds, why would they feel the slightest impetus to jump early? That trick only works if you're unpredictable.

A lot of other teams do the same thing. The Rams, they do it, yet they still put up big numbers.

I have watched several Rams games this year. There are surprising number of plays on which they are lined up and set with 30 seconds left on the clock (we saw a couple of those against the Packers alone), and even more plays on which they've snapped the ball with 10 or 15 or 20 seconds left on the clock. Sure, they often run the clock down to single digits too, but nowhere as often as the Packers do. I doubt it would take two hands to count the number of plays this entire season in which Green Bay had more than 0:09 on the clock when they snapped the ball.

If you're going to say the Packers run the clock down to under 3 seconds 90% of the time and other teams 80% of the time, I can get behind that. Because it matches what I've observed. If you're saying the margin is vastly greater, then you are not watching many full games.

Murphy needed to let Mike go BEFORE the season started.

What I learned from the article. If the Packers fire McCarthy it is important that they hire the right guy to replace him.

That never would have occurred to me.

rabidgopher04 (2h) : Chiefs looked a lot like the McCarthy Packers of old. Amazing offense and a defense that can’t get a 3rd down stop. Probably not watching the Super Bowl this year. So tired of the Patriots. They are g
