We are overjoyed to bring you this news! The Green Bay Packers have reached an agreement on a multi-year contract extension with coach Mike McCarthy, proponent of proper pad level and all-around genius!
The deal was announced today. Terms were not released, although it would be a good bet that the extension runs concurrent with general manager Ted Thompson’s contract.
Thompson signed an extension over the summer that will keep him at the helm of the Packers beyond 2015, which is when his old deal expired. There has been speculation that Thompson’s new deal runs through 2018.
If that’s the case, then we’re getting four more seasons of the Green Bay Packers’ inability to tackle anyone, excuses about pad level and the glorious, all-world A.J. Hawk as a starting inside linebacker.
That also means four more seasons of being good enough to get into the playoffs and poor enough to lose in the first round. So, four more seasons of wasting Aaron Rodgers.
If you’re a betting man or woman, you can probably also bet that the Packers will lose to the 49ers in the playoffs this year and the next four after that. Then we’ll hear about, yes, our defense was bad once again, but I’m sticking by my main man Dom Capers. He’s a hell of a coordinator!
But more importantly, as long as McCarthy is at the helm, we can all bank on that one Super Bowl the Packers won in 2010 despite McCarthy by saying things like, “Yeah, of course Mike McCarthy is an awesome coach. He won a Super Bowl!” Or perhaps, “The Packers won a Super Bowl back in 2010. That’s the only Super Bowl win I need!”
The important thing here is that McCarthy happened to be the coach of a team that won the Super Bowl. And if you’re the coach of a team that won a Super Bowl in Green Bay, then you can give Jesus Christ himself a donkey punch.
Because you can do no wrong!
I for one am not happy to have McGlurpy for another extended period of time. I am soooo excited that we will again be force fed unimaginative play calling, buffoons personal “favorites” instead of real starters, Dom Capers ineptitude, and the obligatory on side kick (whether needed or not), coupled with insipid responses to legitimate questions and, as always, no change in problem areas that continue to be problem areas, and will, (using McGlurpy speech) continue to be problem areas “moving forward” . . .
They’ll certainly be watching more film, working on that, making corrections, and be made aware of all the stuff that’s unacceptable.
Multiple seasons of buffoonery to come, I sure as shit can’t wait.
You guys have no idea what good in the NFL is and/or have ridiculously high expectations.
If MM should be gone for not having more than one recent Super Bowl, then so should every coach not named Coughlin?
I know, this is logic, so it’s hard to understand, but give it a try.
Yes that’s right Carl, Go with just better than . . . you and your confirmation bias rationale blows. What a dolt, if you actually led instead of followed you may see the horizon in the distance . . .
it means nutting ya dipsticks….he could be fired tomorrow, of course he won’t and weird Ted won’t either, he will continue to dig up late round gems and undrafted free agents that can’t play worth a shit and be proclaimed a genius for years to come…when Rodgers goes so will the Big Bartender….”we’ll get that cleaned up”…..
He could have not won a Superbowl. Would that make you feel better?
The grass is not always greener. The last couple years, all we heard about is how much of a genius Jim Harbaugh is, now all you can hear in the media is that he has lost control of his team. The NFL is tough to win consistently. The Packers have been managing to do that since McCarthy has been at the helm, including pre-Rodgers and when Favre was on the down-side of his career (take out the one year with the Vikings). Remember what the Packers did with Favre between Holmgren and McCarthy. Fucking shit is what they did. By this logic, Belichick should have been fired a long time ago. He has done plenty of questionable things coaching and personal-wise in the last ten years. Over those last ten years, he has been falling short consistently, and has not a SB win since 2004 with a hall of fame QB. Is McCarthy perfect, hell no, and he does do some questionable things. Is he a good coach? I think the Packers record since he has been coach speaks for itself. We let him go, who do we get that is better that does require rebuilding?
He’s no cheating cover up artist like Billy Beli-cheat or Sean ‘pay for inflicting more pain’ Peyton, but he is a darn good “preparation” guy and above average play caller. Who else is out there or would be out there that might fit better? Harbaugh?!? Lol
Good for Mac though he’s deserving and he has had to put up with Ted’s draft blunders and win most of the time despite all of the personnel question marks.
P.S. our defensive front seven doesn’t scare a group of girl scouts selling cookies door to door.
Better than the majority of the coaches in the league
Better than any other possible replacement out there
And I think both will stay true for the next few years
McCarthy does deserve some criticism for not acting faster on injuries and for not what I believe was an ultimatum to Capers behind closed doors. He is still a very good coach, who was able to develop Rodgers and show you know who the door.
Pete Carroll is losing control of his locker room. Harbaugh has alienated the front office and players alike. I am not convinced the other Harbaugh is clearly better than McCarthy, either. The only coach who is clearly better is Belichick–but he is a scumbag. And he has not won it all in ten years.
I still back Ted and Mike.
I am actually really happy about this. I think sometimes as Packer fans we forget how fortunate we are. McCarthy led us to a Super Bowl and a 15-1 season after that. We are constantly in the playoffs.
Of course there are times that McCarthy makes me angry and there are things that I don’t like, but look at teams like the Vikings who are constantly searching for a new head coach. I’d rather have a coach with a proven track record that gives us a chance to at least get into the playoffs. Once we are in the playoffs with a quarterback like Aaron Rodgers, all bets are off.
One of the very best coaches in the NFL. Great to keep him and TT on!!
One SB is a big deal, I believe there may be one or two more to come. Enjoy this great run while you can haters
MM’s body of work speaks for itself. He has not been a one year wonder. This team is on its 6th year of exceptional football in a row. Only two other teams have done better since MM was hired. One of those two teams cheat to win.
This website has turned to garbage because the from the queer from the west coast does not know what winning football is. He has bashed TT and MM from the start.
Monty must be waiting for the return of dan devine , bart starr, or Forrest Gregg. Enjoy the run while it is here. 29 other teams wish they had the success MM is living.
Michael Sam is waiting for you call Monty.
SONS OF MCCARTHY!!!! LOVE IT!
