The Green Bay Packers, after falling to 4-7-1 with a loss to the terrible Arizona Cardinals, have fired their head coach.
Mike McCarthy led the Packers to a Super Bowl victory in the 2010 season and 3 trips to the NFC Championship game. However, after finishing 7-9 last season with star QB Aaron Rodgers out most of the season with injury, the Packers have been worse this season with Rodgers healthy. Over the offseason, Rodgers inked the largest contract in NFL history for $134 million.
The firing was first reported by Barstool Sports’ Pardon My Take.
The Packers now have a 34 year old star Quarterback and that’s about it. Davante Adams has had his moments, but turnovers and an aging defense have been the tale of this disappointing season for Green Bay.
So what now?
I wrote on The Packers may look to rebuild last month, and I think I’m a wizard for this one.
Joe Philbin will be the interim head coach for the remainder of the year.
When the season is over and the Packers are on the outside of the playoff picture, there is going to be a lot of questions to answer in Green Bay.
Expect a blockbuster trade and/or major free agent moves for The Packers this offseason.
