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. 😫

If you could see me now you would see me standing in front of my computer clapping. Come on everyone join me.

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)?

gbguy20 (4h) : no one said tonyan is better than graham but it sure seems the general consensus is beginning to lean toward cutting graham rather than paying him another 10 million
beast (5h) : I like Tonyan, but this nonsense (that's growing though out Packers fans) that Tonyan is better than Graham is just like the nonsense about Aaron Rouse being better than Nick Collins in 2007...
beast (5h) : Tonyan got down field once when the OL COMPLETELY OWNED the DL on one play and Rodgers and ALL DAY to hold the ball!
Zero2Cool (6h) : is Tonyan faster? I'd be good cutting Graham and using Tonyan more. I've seen him stretch the field. Graham with busted thumb = terrible
gbguy20 (6h) : can't say there would be much difference, aside from tonyan being way faster
nerdmann (7h) : You gonna go with Tonyan?
gbguy20 (8h) : the dude needs to go after this year
nerdmann (8h) : Bring him back until you develop a guy. That takes a year or two.
nerdmann (8h) : I look at Graham as Chmura, without the blocking.
nerdmann (8h) : Dude was on pace for the all time production record for TEs, broke his damn thumb.
nerdmann (8h) : 46 receptions isn't bad.
packerfanoutwest (8h) : many free agents don't want to play in GB,,,and you know why. Graham played for the money
Nonstopdrivel (11h) : Graham has 46 receptions on 77 targets.
Zero2Cool (11h) : Graham should sit until his broken thumb is better.
gbguy20 (13h) : careful rabidgopher, half the forum will attack you if you say that here.
rabidgopher04 (13h) : Jimmy Graham rarely catches the ball when it comes his way.
Zero2Cool (14h) : Graham: 'My numbers suck' in Green Bay
Zero2Cool (17h) : @NicholasJOlson Stefon Diggs currently has 88 catches without a single drop.
Nonstopdrivel (22h) : I'm pissed I missed it. I fell asleep on the couch.
TheKanataThrilla (14-Dec) : 11 comeback wins by Philip Rivers down 14 points or more. Insane stat.
TheKanataThrilla (14-Dec) : Big Fucking Balls by the Chargers. What a game!!!
TheKanataThrilla (14-Dec) : And the refs don't call the helmet to helmet
TheKanataThrilla (14-Dec) : I hate cheap 3rd down penalties for automatic first downs.
TheKanataThrilla (14-Dec) : Nick Foles probably take them on a winning streak to set up a QB controversy
gbguy20 (14-Dec) : poor guy
gbguy20 (14-Dec) : oh wow
Nonstopdrivel (14-Dec) : Carson Wentz has a fractured backbone. Will likely deal with impotence for the rest of his life.
TheKanataThrilla (14-Dec) : KC & Chargers hopefully this lives up to the hype.
nerdmann (14-Dec) : Leave more of those bigger faster guys for us.
nerdmann (14-Dec) : Teams are going with this smaller quicker WRs
nerdmann (14-Dec) : lol
Zero2Cool (13-Dec) : Probably a good sign you should change your system. dumbass
Zero2Cool (13-Dec) : Mark Davis: Amari Cooper is “a great, great player” who didn’t fit our system
gbguy20 (13-Dec) : Byron bell to ir
Zero2Cool (12-Dec) : @ProFootballTalk Taysom Hill named NFC special teams player of the week
