Mike McCarthy: With that, I’ll take your questions.
Packers senior press reporter: The current Packers leadership across the board has become less transparent with each passing year. It’s something we in this room seek to change. Before I ask the question, you should know that virtually every reporter here has agreed to walk out unless you agree to provide a full and honest answer — and then do so. Our question is: When precisely was your contract extended during the 2017 season, how much is your salary to be in 2018 and 2019, how much more or less is that than your previous annual salary, who do you understand was involved in making or approving the decision, did you yourself request this extension, what reasons were given for it and by whom, and do you feel that being rewarded in this manner in the midst of the team’s worst season in the last nine years is a smart move and will make you a better coach?
This site should cover NFL football, not be confined to just covering the Packers.
I’m sure a lot of Packer fans stop watching the NFL when the Packers season is over. But the playoffs have started. I can’t speak for others, but i’m also a fan of the NFL, and the playoffs are the best time of the year. So with that being said, maybe change the name and expand the writing to include this great sport. TotalPackersPlus.com
I understand some writers ( alleged Packer fans) would prefer to write about who Rodgers might be dating, and in general disrespecting Rodgers.
Lets read some excerpts from this self declared PACKER FAN writer from the L.A. Gossip world.
“First, Patrick was cheating on her previous boyfriend, Ricky Stenhouse Jr., with Rodgers. Second, she’s in it for the exposure, which wouldn’t be out of the norm.” – Mordecai
“That’s exactly what Olivia Munn, Rodgers’ ex, enters a relationship for. We know that to be a fact. And you know what that lends itself to? That Rodgers is indeed gay. These are beards.” – Mordecai
“Not judging. Personally, I think he’s probably bisexual and good for him.” – Mordecai
Not judging huh? lol. The only fact you need to know Mordecai is you are nothing but a POS. You like to assume a lot. So should we all then assume you and Monty are lovers and that’s why you are here? We can’t assume he hired you because of your top shelf sports writing can we? I didn’t think so. But would then lend itself for us to also assume you are the bottom, amirite? NOT JUDGING.
Good get Monty.
Personally, I don’t care about any other teams than the Packers besides knowing the Patriots and Vikings lost, and I’m not going to watch those games. I can see your point and don’t disagree with the idea, but maybe keep it separate from this site. I’m not going to post on other articles about the Bears or some butthole AFC team unless I wanted to do my best impersonation of Killer. Plus that would necessitate a ton of writers who would want to cover those other teams. Maybe call it TotalFootball, because I’m sure the ginger hammer would have an issue with TotalNFL. Not that it isn’t doable but it would be a big commitment. There are probably other sites that do that type of thing. Otherwise, TotalPackers could have a few articles on the playoffs once a year when the Packers are out. Which hopefully that doesn’t happen, but you know…. status quo.
I’m just a nutcase football fan, i may not watch other playoff games A-Z like i do the Packers. as a matter of fact, i’m watching the Jags/Steelers game from my DVR, so i don’t take 3 hours to watch a game. Its 28-21 Jags with 12 and change left…damn good game so far.I’ll also record the Vikings game, the toughest thing is, is to not be informed of the game at present time which isn’t easy. I even record Packer games and let it progress before watching so i can FF through commercials. I’m never going to watch commercials for over 3 hours, just not gonna happen.
Also, i don’t post on any other sites other than this one, period. But it would be cool to see a few recaps and opinions about the other games. But yea, it would take a writer or two, who are football fans. I love the playoffs, with or without the Pack.
I’ve done the DVR thing which is nice. If the game is bad I’ll even speed through gameplay as long as I can tell what’s going on. No point in wasting time watching the Packers get blanked at home.
Packer games are terrible for me. It’s not enough i watch every single play, but i’ll go back and decipher a play as to what happened in slo-mo if i need too, who lost contain, who left their gap, how the secondary broke down, etc. It’s a fucking terrible obsession. I used to get so pissed watching a Packer game, but in the last 2 or 3 years i’ve treated it more as “smh” kind of amusement and coming to terms with the realities of a broken team. So mentally, i’m in a better place :)
Two points….watching the Viqueens dominate the Saints and we have a long way to go to get close to them talent wise. All because of who they drafted and brought in and those we didn’t
I lived through the debacle that was the very late 60’s, the 70’s, 80’s and early 90’s. This team is one injury away from that same fate! Remains to be seen, what if anything changes, but we ended the year ranked somewhere between 30-32 IMO. Fucking terrifying. I don’t have 29 more years to sit around and wait for the next coming like the last time……and the outlawed quaaludes since then:)
Marcus Williams was just given the game ball by the Minnesota Vikings.
Williams, the hero of the game. 2nd round pick, graduate of the Tramon Williams school of tackling.
Stephen Diggs has just won the “Look at me, i’m God” award.
Good luck in Philly…lmao
PF4L I am sure some people here would love to discuss the playoff games in the comments on articles. I am like you and just love watching football, epecially playoff football. Sean Paytons second challenge was an awful decision. And did Quinton Rollins try and tackle Diggs on that TD on the last play? Jesus Christ that was such a piss poor play
If anyone would have tackled Diggs, the Saints more than likely would have won. Time was running out. If I was the DC of the Saints, that fool who whiffed on Diggs would be gone . . . talk about luck . . . Wow.
Wow, and that is why you wrap up when you make a tackle. Something you learn in grade school. Reminded me of Clinton-Dix, or (take your pick from the Packers secondary). Maybe guys will take note and learn how to tackle next year, but probably not. If I was the D-Coordinator, fellow player, or a Saints fan I would be furious. Complete stupidity. Marcus Williams just gifted the Vikings a trip to the NFC Championship game.
Absolutely terrible. I honestly thought Forbath would miss that field goal to follow in the footsteps of other all time great Vikings kickers
If I was Mike Pettine I would show that clip to the secondary and tell them if they ever try to tackle like that I’ll tie them down and give them paper cuts between their fingers and toes.
Terrible attempt at a tackle. Inexcusable when you are the safety.
There was one other play when the Saints had their last possession that could have changed the game. The Saints were going for a field goal all the way. I thought Ginn on the first down play at the Vikings 33 should have turned that ball up the field, rather than easily run out of bounds for 4 yards. The coverage was at least 3 yards off. Ginn may not (or may) have made the first down, but he would have been close and would have forced the Vikings to use all their TOs, including maybe running the clock to 00 with a field goal. With the saints having one TO left, and their location on the field, there was no downside to getting as many yards as possible.
I feel like another thing not being discussed that was brought up on the telecast is Sean Paytons feelings about Taysom Hill being the QB of the future for the saints. The decision to gamble and see if he could be stashed on the practice squad is looking worse and worse, given that he has contributed on special teams for the saints. It looks even worse since the packers had absolutely refused to give Joe Callahan a look when Hundley was struggling and the packers were out of playoff contention. Hill had way more upside than Callahan, and the packers seemed content to get either one on the practice squad. Looks like it could be a big mistake on the packers front office, especially if he is an above average starter for the saints.
He can’t be any worse than Hundley that’s for sure.
