I don't think we give this guy enough credit.

This is the most consistant guy focused on what has to be done to reach the goals I think I have ever seen and I go back to Lombardi. Because HE is so consistant in everything he does it moves right down the line. When they don't play well he speaks in the most simple of terms about "pad level" and basics. Not earth shattering problems needing sophisticated cures.

"STACK SUCCESS" Start a succesful process and then build success' one on top of another.

The subtle tweaks in each weeks game plan and how this guy has his team PREPARED for the opponent better than any coach in the NFL is something to watch. He prides himself in two areas. He will put his players in the best position possible to be successful and they will be prepared. His focus on this is KEEN and it shows on Sunday (or Monday).

You see plays called like the TD unfortunately called back but that play tells their opponent "they are one step up on us and seem to always get us before we can get them. That's PREPARATION. Calling the right play, at the right time, against the right defense.

This is one hell of coach we have over there on the sidelines.

I think that they felt that they had ALOT to prove in this first game because of everything that went down this summer because of mistakes perpetuated by the GM in handling the Favre affair.

They all had chips on their shoulder for this game.

I think that it's something that won't carry throughout the year however. I think alot of the steam was let off in this game, however, that remains to be seen.

It had alot to do with the Packers' motivation as a whole.

This was one game. I am not speaking of one game but the twenty of twenty four they put up with it. That's called consistancy. They didn't need any special motivation before and you can be pretty well assured that most that other crap is media hype that those guys listen little too anyhow.

You can call it one game that was won due to extreme motivation if you want. IMO that had about 3% to do with it and the other 97% came from focusing on fundamentals and good preparation.

I call it stacking one more success onto a pile of success and using it to move forward to next week.

Just something I learned along the way from McCarthy.

Who doesn't give him enough credit?
I certainly have been giving him plenty of credit. I was the guy saying Mike McCarthy was the reason why BF was good again. I was also giving credit to Mike McCarthy when everyone else was giving all the credit to Ted Thompson .

Yeah, right.

I guess it's because of McCarthy that Favre was good with the Jets last weekend too, eh? :lol:

You people just won't admit when the Packers are bad. Sherman ef'ed up the Packers, yet Favre was supposed to magically WIN with them anyway.

What kind of logic is that? It's a team game, except when Brett Favre is playing, right?

Some of you will think up every excuse in the book to cover up for Ted Thompson and blame Favre.

It's unbelievable.

So now Mike McCarthy is a bad coach? Do you actually read anything you write?

I've always admitted when the Packers have been bad, but I haven't had to make such an admission for the past couple years, because (and you may want to sit down for this) they aren't bad.

Nobody needs to cover for Thompson, because -- other than the Favre situation, which situation I'm quite sure I don't fully understand any more than everyone else who isn't Brett, Mike McCarthy or Ted Thompson -- he hasn't done anything but rebuild a struggling team into a Superbowl contender (last year, at any rate -- and no, that isn't simply because of Favre, it's because of him and all the other players on the team).

You really need to try singing a different tune -- this whole act's been done several times over, and it's not a good enough act to warrant that much repetition.

Dude, this has nothing to do about bashing Favre.. it was about giving Mike McCarthy a pad on the back.
Mike McCarthy game planned and coached last year with a different roster and won.. and yes the QB had a hand in it. We shall see with this roster if he can coach them up to win more than they lose.

So far.. they are 1-0. This year.

But the point is he is consistent with the players, in his approach and fits the Green Bay style.. down to earth, real and humble.

Now, if you want to discuss the Favre factor, we have set a sub forum up in which you can post. If you want to continue to bait the threads that have nothing bad to say about Favre or even are related in any form, then alternative steps will need to be taken.

Why.. it derails the threads and turns them into pissing matches that most want nothing to do with.

If you want to discuss Favre, how you feel he was wronged, please contain those posts in the Favre subforum.

Thanks in advance.
