Packers stories in Week 13 for Cardinals fans to know

  • Packers fire coach Mike McCarthy after another loss

Just after the Green Bay Packers' 2018 season expired on Sunday, the team made a swift but surprising move: They've fired head coach Mike McCarthy.

Sputtering Green Bay (4-7-1) has lost three straight and five of six.

Team President Mark Murphy says the search for the next Head Coach will begin immediately.

As I've said and written many times before (here, here, here, here, here, and here), McCarthy's Achilles heel as a head coach and an offensive play-designer was his rigid inflexibility and inability to design passing concepts that would regularly beat even the most rudimentary of defenses.

The question on many Packers fans' minds following the 20-17 home loss to the Arizona Cardinals had to be about whether McCarthy might make it to Monday. Mike McCarthy finishes his Packers career with a 125-77-2 record (.618) - best in the NFC - nine playoff appearances, a 10-8 postseason record and a Super Bowl win.

Although, those Ukrainian vessels could still play a vital role in guarding this base against Russian commando infiltration. The crew members were then captured - 24 in total - and have now been given two months in pre-trial detention.

Know Your HIV Status and Take Control
In 2017, 1.8 million people were newly infected and more than 40% of those affected still do not have access to treatment. In Namibia, the country has achieved success in fighting HIV and AIDS and attaining the UNAIDS 90-90-90 targets.

Joe Philbin will take over as interim head coach. After being unable to get enough wins without Rodgers last season to stay in contention, McCarthy entered the year on the hot seat and never got off of it.

After the game, but before the Packers fired McCarthy, the Cardinals were joking and yelling in the visitor's locker room as if they didn't believe what had just happened. They were out of the playoffs in 2017, but that was due to an injury to quarterback Aaron Rodgers. "We were a little above halfway at halftime, and then toward the end of the game, I wasn't coming out".

"His success, throughout his years here in Green Bay, he is a great coach".

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.

Now players are responding to the firing of their now-former head coach.
