Tony Dungy, Jon Gruden, Brian Billick. What do all these coaches have in common. They’re all not coaching anymore for one thing. They all won one Super bowl. Will McCarthy end up on this list?
McCarthy unlike the other coaches with the exception of Tony Dungy, had Favre now Rodgers. All these coaches were considered great coaches at one time. Then a funny thing happened time just past them by. Belichick from the Patriots always has his team in the playoffs even with subpar talent. Belichick is the royalty of coaches every year his team is in the discussion for the Super bowl. Granted, he has Tom Brady the greatest clutch quarterback of our generation. I am not a Patriots fan at all. But, I do respect good football teams.
McCarthy has been devastated by injuries again. I do cut some slack for that. How are you supposed to coach a new player in a new position every week. This the NFL and if you are supposed to be the best. When Thompson and McCarthy draft players they draft those who can fit the Packers system. What is the issue with the Packers. Next man up, philosophy?
Is it McCarthy is good enough to coach these players? Is it the staff not being able to coach the players? Losing Joe Philbin was a huge loss in my opinion. Maybe it’s a combination of both.
All I know is McCarthy better figure it out otherwise he’ll be joining the coaches I mentioned above.
