Packers fans react to news of Mike McCarthy’s firing

  • NFL Arizona Cardinals at Green Bay Packers

McCarthy has a street named for him outside of Lambeau Field.

Zane Gonzalez kicked a 44-yard field goal with 1:41 left, Green Bay's Mason Crosby missed a 49-yard attempt as time expired and the Cardinals braved wintry conditions to hold on for a 20-17 win over the Packers on Sunday. The Packers won the Super Bowl under McCarthy in the 2010 season.

Rodgers was asked after the game - but before McCarthy's firing was announced - how much blame offensive players should get if the Packers made a coaching change after the season.

"The 2018 season has not lived up to the expectations and standards of the Green Bay Packers", team president and CEO Mark Murphy said in a statement. Despite the fact that the 2018 Packers haven't been very good, they had no business losing to the Arizona Cardinals, led by rookie quarterback Josh Rosen, at Lambeau Field in snowy temperatures. "I'm not going to act like I know what the hell I'm going to do tomorrow when they get in here".

A December game against a warm-weather team with snow falling usually means an automatic victory for the Packers.

If the Packers were going to show the National Football League they weren't as bad as their record indicated, Rodgers would have hit Davante Adams in stride for a 59-yard touchdown late in the second quarter. The Cardinals struggled early offensively but ended up with six plays of 20 yards or longer, a lot of them in the second half.

McCarthy becomes the first Packers coach to not finish a full season since Gene Ronzani voluntarily walked away with two games to go in the 1953 season. "We're not executing the right way", Rodgers said.

Green Bay also had its longest kickoff return of the season on Sunday with running back Jamaal Williams bringing one back for 30 yards in the second quarter.

The Green Bay Packers will start their search for a new head coach a little earlier than expected.

A 16-yard completion to Adams with 13:42 left in the second quarter gave Rodgers the team record for attempts without an interception.
