Kind of a classy move by both parties, I think.

No you don't... it's a very classy move.

Though I read one stat that said you also don't see Superbowl winning coaches fired midseason often, as this is only the second time it's happened in NFL history. That came as a shock to me if true.

Classy both by the Organization and Mike McCarthy

Just another example of why the Packers are so unique in sports

Walked in to a standing ovation and out to one as well. Doesn't seem like he had lost his locker room

Why not, they certainly weren't playing hard for him. McCarthy is by all reports a fantastic person, it's completely reasonable to believe he lost the players on the field but still had their respect as a person. If you had a boss who you didn't think could do the job anymore but was a great person would you give them an ovation in a similar situation? I think most people would.

I don't think anyone has said this is a situation where people hated Mike but more that his message as it pertains to football had gotten stale and wasn't reaching the team anymore.

Totally off topic, but since you brought up standing ovation, I feel like having me a rant.

Standing ovations are so overused these days. It's gotten to the point that people seem to think every play, every concert, every award announcement needs to end in a standing ovation. And if one person stands, there's so much peer pressure for everyone else to stand, because otherwise you look like an asshole for staying in your seat. It drives me nuts. Standing ovations should be reserved for those rare moments in life when a performance is so awe inspiring that the audience is swept to its feet as one, like the first time Handel's Messiah was played and the king was so moved that he lept to his feet. If every ovation must be standing, then what's the point of ordinary applause?

Call me a Grinch if you must, but I don't stand for gradeschool concerts. They're sheer torture. 😫

A coach can lose control of the locker room and then after he is fired the players feel bad for him. They are not mutually exclusive. In general players feel something for their coaches. Only a few are real SOBs and for the most part those coaches were forced out years ago.

Yeah, feelings for people always get stronger when they're gone, either by death, firing, whatever. I doubt many players disliked McCarthy as a human, but I'm not sure they were buying his football message. That's not personal, it's just business. Can't take that stuff personal.

Either way, Murphy screwed up by not making this happen in the off season, or before. I can't deny that.

Why are you saying Mark Murphy screwed up by not waiting until the off-season or before? I'm kind of confused. Wouldn't before the off-season, be during the season? Are you saying he should have fired him when Ted stepped down (or was fired, whatever the hell happened)?
