Candidates to Replace Mike McCarthy as Packers Head Coach

"As a result, I made the hard decision to relieve Mike McCarthy of his role as head coach, effective immediately", Packers CEO and President Mark Murphy said in a statement. The Packers haven't lost at Lambeau Field, with all four of its wins and a tie.

Zane Gonzalez kicked a 44-yard field goal for Arizona with 1:41 left, Green Bay's Mason Crosby missed a 49-yard attempt as time expired and the Cardinals braved wintry conditions to hold on for a 20-17 win on Sunday.

That was when the Packers officially made a decision to call it quits on the McCarty tenure after 13 seasons, which included a Super Bowl championship in 2010.

McCarthy was officially canned after Green Bay dropped yet another game to fall to 4-7-1 on the season.

The blame goes on Mike McCarthy, and it's hard to see him remaining as the head coach at the end of the season. I thought we were ready for the game.

The Arizona Cardinals were joking and yelling in the visiting locker room at Lambeau Field as if they didn't believe what had just happened.

Cooper's troops prepared for Liverpool battle in Premier League Cup
The day before yesterday we played and as you can imagine, it was quite an intense game and there were a lot of knocks that we have to see.


If the Packers were going to show the National Football League they weren't as bad as their record indicated, Rodgers would have hit Davante Adams in stride for a 59-yard touchdown late in the second quarter.

"Mike McCarthy is as good as gone but ppl gotta stop making excuses for Aaron Rodgers".

McCarthy was in his 13th season as coach. The Cardinals struggled early offensively but ended up with six plays of 20 yards or longer, majority in the second half. "We got it going in the second quarter, and I don't know if we felt like they were just going to roll over at that point, up 10-7, but obviously we played three series in the third quarter and didn't do anything and then we had couple decent drives in the fourth but we just didn't play very well".

Poor weather - a mix of snow and rain throughout - also contributed to both the Cardinals and Packers struggling offensively at times, but this should have been an advantage for Green Bay.

Rodgers has played well although he has had much better seasons.

Rodgers set a franchise record for most consecutive pass attempts without an interception, breaking Bart Starr's franchise record of 294.
