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
go.pack.go.

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)?

Cheesey (9m) : I’m not questioning you Zero, just trying to figure it out. Is Davis that good that they are trying so hard to find a spot where he can play?
Cheesey (10m) : Why would they try a last ditch effort? I mean, if they have to try THAT hard, is he really worth it?
Zero2Cool (4h) : Keep in mind the quick little fast guys that the Rams, Falcons used. They might see Trevor in that role.
Zero2Cool (4h) : More than likely, this is a last ditch effort to find a spot for Trevor.
Cheesey (13h) : I agree gbguy. He must have a relative in a high position on the Packers!
gbguy20 (19h) : except ty was actually good (at both positions) where Trevor has never shown a reason to be on the 53. how he has been here for so long escapes me
wpr (21h) : It's the Montgomery experiment all over again.
gbguy20 (22h) : Trevor Davis practicing as a RB during OTAs. what the hell
Zero2Cool (22-May) : Folks usually say the series don't start until road team wins
TheKanataThrilla (22-May) : There was a stat that indicated that home crowd was most important in basketball of the big 4 sports. Not sure why.
Zero2Cool (22-May) : Raptors are simply better team top/down, and two of their main guys are hobbled.
Zero2Cool (22-May) : And didn't learn from past mistakes and lost Game 4.
Zero2Cool (22-May) : Bucks should have lost Game 1, got lucky. Dominated Game 2. Screwed up in Game 3.
Zero2Cool (22-May) : I don't think they are gonna make it to the Finals. No effort, no heart last night.
buckeyepackfan (22-May) : Don't panic Cheesey, series will go 7 games. NBA needs that to happen.
Cheesey (22-May) : Bucks stunk it up tonight. If they keep this up, they will be WATCHING the championship on TV.
TheKanataThrilla (22-May) : Congrats Blues. Stanley Cup bound.
gbguy20 (22-May) : i c u cheesey
Cheesey (21-May) : Yeah....would have been good “JU JU”! LOL!
Zero2Cool (21-May) : Should have taken JuJu Smith-Schuster instead of Josh Jones
Zero2Cool (21-May) : " So I think it's a good opportunity for those guys to get the bulk of the reps. I think everyone in here is comfortable what Davante is about."
Zero2Cool (21-May) : LaFleur says Davante Adams is present, but he did not practice: "Just precautionary, and ... we do have some young receivers. So I think it's a good opportunity for those guys to get the bulk of the r
Nonstopdrivel (21-May) : They won another Eastern Conference Championship in '74.
Nonstopdrivel (21-May) : They won it all in 1971.
gbguy20 (21-May) : im assuming not
gbguy20 (21-May) : have the bucks ever won it all?
Cheesey (21-May) : Yup.hes best taking it to the hoop.
gbguy20 (20-May) : the nba 10 years ago vs now
Zero2Cool (20-May) : and I do NOT want Giannis taking 3's unless we are up by double digits. Period.
Zero2Cool (20-May) : and it was bumbled up and a turnover. TAKE THE DAMN SHOT
Zero2Cool (20-May) : So many times it looked like clear lane to the hoop and instead of the layup, they did an awkward pass
Zero2Cool (20-May) : That was another thing that boggled my mind.
Cheesey (20-May) : True. So many missed shots. These guys are pros, yet can’t seem to make a free throw???
Zero2Cool (20-May) : 12 points wasn't the issue, it was his 8 turnovers. And the stupid ass passing in the paint. Just take the damn lay up.
Cheesey (20-May) : Held the Greek freak to 12 points. That sure didn’t help us.
Zero2Cool (20-May) : Always feel home team gonna win game three. But once OT hit, I felt it was ours.
Cheesey (20-May) : They had plenty of chances. They just plain blew it.
Zero2Cool (20-May) : Bucks didn't win, crap!
Zero2Cool (19-May) : It'll be canceled before the month is up 😜
gbguy20 (19-May) : dangit
Zero2Cool (19-May) : You have to pick a package. I think they have an NBA package. I just bought the $25 that gave me ESPN TNT and TBS to ensure NBA games.
gbguy20 (18-May) : from*
gbguy20 (18-May) : do you have to pick ftom "packages" with sling or can you legit individually pick the channels you want?
Zero2Cool (18-May) : and ya can cancel anytime ...
Zero2Cool (18-May) : Sling TV is $25 a month.
nerdmann (18-May) : My SkyStreamer is running great.
Nonstopdrivel (18-May) : Even at fifty bucks, YouTube TV is reasonable. I projected the Super Bowl on a screen at least 20-feet high, and the clarity was impeccable.
gbguy20 (18-May) : 50 is nuts for that. i like your sling idea
Zero2Cool (18-May) : YouTube TV is $50 a month
Zero2Cool (18-May) : I paid for one month of SlingTV for NBA
