Well Pat, I feel pretty fucking great. I’ve wanted the Packers to fire Mike McCarthy for at least the last 5 years. In my opinion, no other coach in the last 20+ years has done less with more. Aaron Rodgers has covered so many of his deficiencies during their time together that it makes my brain want to explode just thinking about it. Rodgers hasn’t been great this year. His statistics wouldn’t necessarily say so, but he has routinely missed several throws this year that he never does. I’ve been saying it for weeks now on The Pat McAfee Show 2.0 (which you can listen to here), I think Rodgers has purposefully been tanking to ensure that the Packers took McCarthy out behind the woodshed and put him down. Hear me out. Rodgers just turned 35, and has maybe another 5 elite years left in him before his skillset starts to diminish a little bit. This season is lost, it was officially done for last week. The Packers have looked like shit for the past several weeks, but anyone who is a Packers fan understands they don’t typically make these types of decisions until the end of the season. What better way than by intentionally losing to a piss poor 2-8 Arizona Cardinals team in December, at Lambeau. That would undoubtedly put the final nail in Mike McCarthy’s cheese curd and bratwurst filled coffin.
Now listen, I could go on and on about McCarthy’s weight and shovel 500 more pounds of shit onto his lifeless body, but I’m not going to do that. We’ve got bigger fish to fry. Namely who the next football coach is going to be. Some are saying Josh McDaniels, some are saying Bruce Arians. Both of these choices would make me ecstatic, but I’m not going to get ahead of myself. As long as the next hire doesn’t come from within the building, I’m good. Still need to drain the swamp. Get rid of Pettine, get rid of Zook, don’t hire Philbin when the season is over. You need to make sure that the next 5 years of Rodgers’ career are his best yet.
As for McCarthy.. good riddance. It makes it that much sweeter knowing he didn’t see it coming.
What a jackass. Literally the only guy within 2,000 miles who couldn’t see it coming, and that has been the problem. The guy was just so fucking ignorant. Of course now you’ll hear all the stories about how great of a guy he was behind closed doors and off the record, and that’s fine. But he lost the locker room years ago, and thus, lost Rome. But before you go, here’s a little Christmas gift for you, Mike.
