Goodbye to Mike McCarthy

Anyone who has known me for a minute or two, knows that I am a die hard Cheesehead. I am a truly devoted fan and have been since I was about 3 or 4…I was lucky enough to have chosen one of the greatest sports teams that organized sports have ever known or seen…. I have also been blessed to have lived through an amazing era…I watched Mike Holmgren, Bret Favre, Donald Driver, Jennings, Ahman Green, Sterling Sharpe, Reggie White, Clay Matthews, David Bakhtiari, Aaron Rodgers, and Mike McCarthy….

Being a huge Packer fan, I follow multiple Packer forums so I can keep up the latest updates and stay involved with other fans and what is going on…On several forums, I have listened to many fellow so-called Cheeseheads bash on McCarthy for some time now, and it truly rubs me the wrong way… Putting aside the fact that I actually like McCarthy, lets just evaluate the abundance of disrespect that these whining fans are showing to our great organization…It is just ridiculous. All these couch surfing, wannabe coaches talking all the trash about play calling and who we should’ve drafted or shouldn’t have traded and so on and so on….just get a reality check to the fact that there is a significant reason that you are watching football from your couch instead of from the sidelines…you aren’t an expert. Big shocker…many of you thought you were…many of you will disregard what I am saying and assume that you still are an expert…so sad when people are that clueless. We are privileged enough to be fans of the greatest team in football…Be proud…be thankful…and show respect. Trust in our team and the administration and personnel; there is a reason they are there and you are not.

All in all, I have grown tired of the ungrateful whiny fans. Stay strong and cheer our boys on in the rough times just as we do in the good times. They struggle far less than they bring us victory. They deserve better from us as fans.

Regarding McCarthy, I truly believe he is a great innovative coach. I do not believe he is the cause for our recent struggle, but it is his responsibility to change and adapt to challenges and problems to keep our team rising to Greatness where we belong. HE has done so in many cases over the last 13 years with the Packers…when he decided to go with running back by committee opposed to have an actual starter…very cool and creative. When we had all three of our running backs injured and he decided to try out Ty Montgomery at running back which he proved to be a great asset to the team in as a versatile threat. Then the next season, he decided to keep Ty listed as a receiver as to afford them the opportunity to find other players that can be signed to fill those running back spots while Ty can still run the ball as a receiver. These are just a few of the recent creative ways he has been there for our team. Not to mention the endless practices with Aaron Rodgers throwing the impossible throws and practicing being extremely calculated in the receivers catching the ball outside and dragging their feet inside and Aaron throwing the ball without ever having looked at the player or even in that direction…So many write how Aaron Rodgers is extremely lucky or he is a God to football…He is neither.  He is extremely talented, but he is also well trained…he practices the so called Hail Mary and the outside throws and even the plays that appear to the fans at home to be broken plays, even Aaron has said himself in several interviews…”We practice that play all the time.”

Mike McCarthy is a great coach and will be missed with the Packers….with that being said, I am a true Cheesehead and will stand by my Packers. I trust that they know what they are doing and that is why I am at home watching them. I wish McCarthy all the best. And no doubt, the Pack is only facing these obstacles for a moment as they are on their way back to the top where they rightfully belong…Go Pack! GO!!! …..SuperBowl Bound
