    I said this exact thing in the other thread. I think he has been Jerry's target all along. They might have even made a contact long ago, who knows?

    I'm drinking the Kool aid because I'm excited we have a coach that isn't Garrett, and has some major skins on the wall. Favre threw 29 picks the year before McCarthy got to Green Bay. He was huge in helping resurrect his career. Rodgers was NFL ready day 1 right? Wrong. He developed under McCarthy. He has a history of success with the QB's. He is a HUGE upgrade from Garrett. I'm sorry we weren't able to bring back Jimmy or Parcells. For what is out there this is a good hire

    Think change was needed, but we'll see how this goes. Don't hate or love it.

    When Lincoln Riley, Dan Mullen, and Marvin Lewis are names thrown around then you can’t be too upset with Mike McCarthy. He was probably the most accomplished available candidate. Green Bay had like an 8 year stretch with winning seasons, a super bowl, some NFC Championship appearance. Yes he had Rodgers, but this has the potential to be the most talented overall team he’s ever worked with imo.

    Exactly my thought. He was ran out of GB after players complained about his offense being predictable and unimaginative. Just like Garrett.

    After dealing with Jimmy and Parcells, I'm thinking Jerry doesn't want a headstrong HC anymore. He doesn't want his authority being challenged. That's why he keeps hiring nobodies and puppets.

    As i mentioned in the other thread.

    - People are going to give rodgers all the credit for their SB. As yourself this though, What "talent" did mccarthy ever have on those teams but rodgers. Half the years he had no defense, no oline and no running game. When was the last "great" GB running back you've heard of.

    - I would argue at times he ONLY had rodgers and made the playoffs 9 of 13 years.

    - Guy commands instant respect because of that ring. How many SB winning coaches have we hired for this franchise in the last 20 years. This is a change from the norm.

    - People are going to say "his offenses are just like garret". Our teams including this year was top 10 in offense and defense. That wasn't the issue. The issue came to game management, lack of preperation and lack of adjustments in close games.

    I think its a good hire, we now have a Super Bowl winning head coach..feels pretty cool.

    Im excited about it and when I saw the news, I was relieved it wasnt some semi succesful coordinator we hadnt heard about.

    While I think they will not be able to make it tp the SB, they now do have a coach in Lafleur who is a great one. That doesn't and wouldn't make MM a bad coach.

    Let’s see if he gets to pick his own staff, if he does, then I haven’t a problem with hiring him... I’m ok with him keeping Moore and see if they can work together, but we need a complete change at DC.

    He definitely checks my main box for qualification in that he is not a Garrett.

    That being said, I like his resume. I have no doubt he will be a huge upgrade to Jerry's decade long mistake. I hope they hire some good coordinators and he takes us to the promised land.

    On the Rodgers thing. People need to drop it. Many great coaches and QBs did nothing

    People look at the 2017-2018 Packers & how McCarthy's run ended, and perhaps it leaves a sour taste in their mouth, but if you look at it from an unbiased perspective - Quite frankly those Packers teams literally had almost next to no talent outside of d0uche stache [Rodgers]. This is probably the most talented roster that McCarthy has perhaps ever had & the guy has coached in 18 playoff games!! What other coach out there has that much playoff experience & a winning playoff record?

    Also as far as Aaron Rodgers recent comments go, you need to think about the source - this guy doesn't even talk to or have a relationship with his OWN FAMILY!!!!! That to me speaks volumes about a person.

    Brings new offensive scheme which we have not had since 2007 and is much needed. Rounding out staff his huge if he gets Lewis and some other guys from that Ravens tree I will be happy.

    Maybe Boys will go get a safety

    McCarthy tends to be pass happy though he did have Rodgers
