By god, it would be a dream come true if the Green Bay Packers finally fired Mike McCarthy. Unfortunately, it’s going to take a garbage season like this one to get that job done.
The ultimate wild card in this scenario is going to be Packers president Ginger Gap Tooth. It seems pretty clear that Aaron Rodgers wants McCarthy gone. General manager Brian Gutekunst, it appears, wants McCarthy gone.
But since everyone reports to Mark Murphy, none of that matters. It’s GGT who will make the final call on Fat Mike.
What we know is Fat Mike is starting to sweat.
“That’s the job. That’s the way this business has gone,” McCarthy said. “We set a standard here the past 12 years, and it’s our responsibility to play to that standard. That’s the way we approach it.”
Not playing to that standard this year, are you Gravy Head?
The Packers have had the opportunity to win in each of their last three losses. All of those were on the road, where the team is 0-5.
McCarthy’s teams have started slow before. That’s actually been a regular occurrence, but we are now beyond the tipping point.
We discussed the uphill battle — probably insurmountable — the Packers would face to make the playoffs if they lost to the Seattle Seahawks. And they did just that.
The Packers have had a chance to win in Los Angeles against the Rams, in New England and in Seattle. They won none. And I will be fair, Gravy Fart couldn’t account for Ty Montgomery and Aaron Jones fumbling in those first two mentioned losses.
But this last game in Seattle has a familiar stench. It has the stench of the NFC Championship game following the 2014 season.
This game was nowhere near as big, of course. But if you were watching it and didn’t think of that game, I’m not sure what you were watching. The ending seemed inevitable. The Packers can’t win in Seattle. At least not with Gravy Ass coaching them.
What’s the common denominator with all of these losses?
It’s Fat Mike.
And if the Packers miss the playoffs two years in a row, he should be out on his fat ass. Even if they somehow make it in as the sixth seed and lose at any point, he still needs to go
