We're looking at Tony Romo where did you the I don't remember if I guess it was verified Cousy trustworthy, good? The idea of us creating our own rumors on Twitter and then coming on our show and saying there's a rumor going around it's been reported. Andy Halloway on Twitter at Andy Holloway Tony Romo. Maybe next head coach of the Zona cardinals. What else could we do? Well, we'll learn over time. Just what power we have? Or don't have. I believe Mike calls this fart sniffing. Yes. The boom, boom.

I I mean, if Peres I mean takes over say the Garson role and Goodwin which I think has absolutely then he can succeed. He's got the talent to do. So. But the issue is we haven't seen that yet. It's I I don't wanna go into fantasy playoff weeks. These are the weeks got Molins dependency fell right? These are the weeks now where we shift from really going absolute bottom of the barrel when it comes to streamers.

Did Green Bay Packers coach Mike McCarthy deserve to get fired?
"Is not to say that Mike McCarthy didn't deserve to be a head. Coach is not to say that he did a terrible job because he did it. He's proven to be a good coach. And it may very well be that he deserves to be someplace else. I'm certainly not gonna sit up here and say that Mike McCarthy doesn't deserve to be a head coach in the league as long as Jason Garrett, and Marvin Lewis is still head coaches in the league, I'm not gonna do that. I'm not gonna do that. Especially Marvin Lewis. These Jason gave wanna play off game is more than I can say for Marvin Lewis hasn't wanna play off game sixteen years, Mike McCarthy's a Super Bowl champion. I think that ultimately the indictment against Mike McCarthy is very very simple, ladies and gentlemen. When you are coaching. Arguably the greatest talent we have ever seen at the quarterback position in NFL history. You gotta have more than one Super Bowl championship in more than one Super Bowl appearance to show for it. You have to have that Mike because he didn't have that. You can't have Arron Rogers questioning the play calling. You can't have him chagrined over the personnel. That surrounding him ask why that's the biggest defense that I have for Mike McCarthy. He he isn't the only one that needs to needed to go. I think I don't have any problem with Mark Murphy, the presidency yo for the Green Bay Packers going. I mean, you don't wanna had Ted Thompson up in there as a GM before you put. We assign them to consultants position. Brian Khuda Kint good a cancer. We don't know what he's capable of. He clearly wants to move into different direction and have his own guy. That's fair enough. But under Mike are under under a Murphy, you had a regime that did not respect ariza's enough. Didn't show him the courtesy and respect you deserve. You got rid of the quarterbacks. Coach alexan- pelt. You didn't even consult with Andrew with Rogers. How do you have a quarterback coach and not consult with Amer Rogers before letting him go? How do you do that? How do you do that? I remember one time I was told Aaron Rodgers walked into their office. They told him to get the hell out shut up. You play. We run organization. That's how this works really, really. I want to walk around here and act like you know, what Aaron Rodgers listen. He's not having a greatest year. Yeah. Absolutely. Right. He's not in that. Absolutely. Right. Eras is not having the greatest year. Nobody's gonna make that defense. He's not gonna make that defensible himself. He ain't blind. He could see understands, but we're talking about eras who will who will saunter who will cruise into the hall of fame first ballot without question. And gentlemen, Aaron Rodgers has twenty one touchdowns and just one interception on this season. And that's a down year for him. That's how lethal he is. That's how great he is. We are talking about a man with a career ninety eight and fifty five and one record. We are talking about a man, then it's completed sixty four point eight percent of his passes. First career. We are talking about a man that has done this at the frozen tundra lamb Lambeau Field for his career, and he is still passing over forty two thousand yards. We are talking about a man that's exceeded. What some would label top-five quarterback in NFL history who's passed over seventy thousand yards and Brett farve. And nobody would tell you that bradfo was better than that Rogers. That's how great Aaron Rodgers is. That's how great Aaron Rogers has been. And so guess what? If he's not feeling a coach, if he's not happy, or whatever the case may be you better pay attention.
Green Bay Packers fire coach Mike McCarthy after loss to Cardinals
"Missed the number opportunities throughout the game. The voice of coach Mike McCarthy actually make that former coach Mike McCarthy he was fired Sunday after the laws replaced by offensive coordinator. Joe Philbin team, president Mark Murphy. In a statement saying the twenty eight eighteen season, quote as not lived up to the expectations and standards of the Green Bay Packers. Mccarthy was in his thirteenth season as coaching Green Bay win the Super Bowl in twenty ten but this is a third straight season where the Packers abs- struggled ESPN Packers reporter robbed Moskvy. This was always going to be a difficult season for McCarthy. Given what happened nearly a year ago when they forced out general manager, Ted Thompson, remember Thompson was the one who hired McCarthy back in two thousand six they didn't just change general managers this off season. They changed the entire power structure, and they only gave McCarthy a one year extension. So he was under contract only through two thousand nineteen and the structure change was this instead of the general manager having the authority over the head coach team, president, Mark Murphy. Took over the authority and McCarthy reported to Murphy, the GM reported to Murphy, it was entirely different power structure. So any sense that this season didn't go or wasn't going to go as well as they had hoped? You had to wonder if this was coming and with those stretch that they've had the four losses in five games on the road. And then coming home today an embarrassing showing on offense. It all goes back to when Aaron Rodgers ripped the offense here after their win over buffalo. That was the first real side of the beginning of the end for Mike McCarthy, as we mentioned Joe Philbin will take over an interim basis, but with that being said long-term word you the Packers go here from here. I should say in terms of a new head coach. Yeah. Well, Michael, I just got a text message right before we went on the air from a player somebody who played prominently in today's game and said who do you think our next head coach will be so even the players want to know that they possibly made this move to try to see if Joe Philbin was the guy. Remember Philbin was a coach in Miami. Mike Patton is also on the staff. Former Browns kit coaches a defensive coordinator. But more than likely they will go with someone who can bring some new offensive ideas to this group that the big question now, though isn't necessarily who's going to be the next coach. It's who's going to hire the next coach just Murphy stay in that role or does he then turn it finally turn it back over to Brian good accuse after Kuna proved himself to be a pretty good talent evaluator and building the roster. The feeling here is that they need to go back to the structure of the way. It's been over the years here. The general manager made all football decisions. We'll see if that happens Murphy, we'll talk to reporters tomorrow here early afternoon. Mike McCarthy fired in his thirteenth season is Packers coach longest tenured coach in the NFL remained Bill Belichick with the patriots. Mike Tomlin has been with the Steelers since two thousand seven in the Sunday night game against the chargers. The Steelers leading sixteen seven

"At Stanford change the Ted Thompson out the door last year. And now, they believe that, you know, Mike McCarthy's offense, a stale and the team is undisciplined near Rogers isn't happy with with his relationship and the play calling to Mike McCarthy. So they want him gone. I think that's the attitude of more than fifty percent of Packer fans. One of which I'm not. I do not believe Mike McCarthy should leave at the end of the season. Now, look the Packers lose their next eight games, or whatever's left. Well, that's that's a different story. But regardless of whether or not the Packers made the playoffs or not. I do believe Mike McCarthy should continue to be the head coach of the Green Bay Packers. And I'll tell you why. But I I'm gonna give you an example of what it's like in the business world. In my prior job here at iheartradio, Milwaukee I was in management. And we had a couple of employees who were pretty good at their job. There was other issues that went along with their time at that company. And one of my arguments, and keeping these employees to my bosses was look. Just because you make a change in the business world sports world, even in government. Just because you make a change. There is no guarantee that whoever you turn to we'll be better than the employees that you currently have that's not to say, they don't have faults. That's not to say that they're not the best employees that there could possibly be in that position. However. You could go backwards. And that's I think what a lot of Packer fans. Have lost sight of. Just because you get rid of Mike McCarthy at the end of the season. Whether it's amicable whether he gets traded to the Cleveland Browns, which seems to be the big rumor that's where he'll go because John Dorsey is their general manager. And he's got ties to Green Bay. I think four hundred scouts are also in the Cleveland Browns organization, you know, young quarterback. Baker Mayfield might McCarthy's this quarterback. Guru Alex bet humbling apparently that seems to be the big rumor Mike McCarthy leaves at the end of the season and goes to coach the Cleveland Browns. Okay. Packer fans. You realize that the team could get worse under a new head coach Shirley could get better. They could bring in who's the guide Oklahoma. Lincoln Riley that there's so many college football coach, I think Mike Riley said Oklahoma state Lincoln thing is percents Lincoln. He's the he's the next hot young candidate mid thirties age, you know, everyone is pointing to the success that the guy in L A, Sean McVeigh has had. That's what the Packers need to change things up. Make Aaron make Aaron thinking in Reveiz engines all over again. Okay. Sure for everyone of those guys though, there's also the hot assistance or hot head coaches in the college ranks that come up and fall flat on their face. The organization goes backwards. Time where you still have a good shot of getting to the Super Bowl because number twelve is under center. Do you really want to take a chance to go in the opposite direction? Because while the Packers have had a lot of success for now. Almost two generations. Since Ron woolfe came here in one was at ninety two. Packer fans have forgotten. That is quickly is you can go twelve and four you can go four and twelve. And while Mike McCarthy has its faults. I mean, the fact that Aaron Jones. Has not gotten more snaps at running back. Then he has since he came back from that to game suspension is absolutely embarrassing. And if that is Mike McCarthy's decision, then that does fall on him. That kids should be playing. What do you get fifteen touches yesterday? Look the days of a running back eating thirty touches in the NFL are long gone, especially when you have Aaron Rodgers under center. But so much good has come from the Packer offense when they have a running game in here. Jones seems to be that guy. Sled is that I think you can fairly be very critical Mike McCarthy. Another point you can only work with the talent, you have this Thompsons last few drafts have shown. The talent level in Green Bay hasn't. Exactly been very successful. Up until good incudes came to the general manager's chair. Packers haven't signed any free agents. So Mike McCarthy and his coaching staff have had to work with what they've had. Apparently, it wasn't the greatest Aaron Rodgers covered up. A lot of words that was painfully obvious when he went down with that injury last year and Brett Hundley had to lead the team. The results speak for themselves at that point. So that's one of caution Packer fans here. I know in sports talk radio it's easy to get on the air, especially after a loss and say fire, the coach fire the coach going to get rid of Aaron Rodgers so fire the coach Ted Thompsons gone, Mike McCarthy's now now the scapegoat. The guy did win the Super Bowl. It was a while ago. But there are other coaches in the NFL who have had success. What do I define a success winning Super Bowls? After they had the lull in their coaching tenure perfect example of what's going on right now. Sean Payton, he's the head coach of the New Orleans Saints up until this year they had three very mediocre years back to back to back after they won their Super Bowl. A few years back. Sean Payton came into the league the same year. Mike McCarthy did. They weather the storm. And now, they're by all accounts the best team in football. With a veteran quarterback. Drew Brees you go back even farther Tom Landry. When a couple of Super Bowls of the Cowboys while he won more than a couple. But two of his rings came very late in his tenure as head coach Bill cower from the Pittsburgh Steelers. He I think he was there. Thirteen fourteen years. He won his Super Bowl very late in his tenure. So there is something to be said about coaches. Who have early success a little bit of a lull and then come back strong? And plus I'm just deathly afraid of hiring some tired old coach who comes in thinking, they know everything. And then we set the franchise back fifteen years while you have the hall of fame quarterback in Aaron Rodgers even though he's missing a couple of throws. So I believe. Reality says this will be Mike McCarthy's last year in Green Bay. I hope that's not the case because I think the guy still can't coach. And I'm not ready to cut the cord after this season yet in the Mike McCarthy era here in Green Bay. You're listening to the Dan Donald show on NewsTalk eleven thirty w I send my name is Dave Michaels in for Dan. It is ten twenty six. Another.

"No matter how this plays out your thoughts. You know, it could be it could be and and I think that if the Packers don't make the playoffs. I you're definitely going to have to watch Green Bay because no longer is this status quo. Ted, you know, this isn't the Ted Thompson show. You know, Brian go to to likes Mike McCarthy. But I don't. Big is going to judge where they are as a team. And where Aaron Rodgers is the approaches mid thirty. Yeah. I had an NFL scout tell me yesterday that he sees this playing out with McCarthy ending up in in Cleveland with his release or a lot of people or you know, a lot of people are doing two plus two because Dorsey is young there. But just remember one thing, and I'm not saying that it won't happen at all say it could happen. But I just remember one thing McCarthy was not necessarily a, you know, all those guys who are in Green Bay, Ron woolfe guys, you know, John Schneider. John Dorsey, Ted Thompson, those guys who you know, were sort of you know, they they they went to the they went to the Ted Thompson school or the. Ron woolfe? And I'm not sure that Mike McCarthy. I you know, that that people look at the coaches who coached there, you know, Mike Sherman, Mike McCarthy all it as necessarily Green Bay guys. So to speak, as you know, that that that it's convenient to link them. No question about it. Because obviously they did work together. But I'm not sure it's a lock I would. I'd also look at at places where John Dorsey really really likes football, program likes, the coaches. There's no question he respects the Oklahoma program. He spends a lot of time their scouting or has spent a lotta time their scouting. And I have no idea what his relationship is with Lincoln Riley, but Lincoln Riley appears to me to be a guy who's gonna get some interest after this season in And may. maybe not just from Cleveland. He's Peter King. NB speaking NBC, sports dot com NFL columnist, and you can read his great column. Football morning in America every Monday, exclusively NBC, sports dot com..
