Green Bay's next head coach must be Aaron Rodgers advocate-and offensive savior

Green Bay's next head coach must be Aaron Rodgers advocate-and offensive savior

"As a result, I made the hard decision to relieve Mike McCarthy of his role as head coach, effective immediately", Chief Executive Officer Mark Murphy said in the statement. It was at Lambeau Field.

The Green Bay Packers have parted ways with Head Coach Mike McCarthy and named Joe Philbin interim head coach.

That was when the Packers officially chose to call it quits on the McCarty tenure after 13 seasons, which included a Super Bowl championship in 2010.

The Packers hadn't lost a game in which Aaron Rodgers started at Lambeau Field since Week 9 of the 2016 season against the Indianapolis Colts, going 10-0-1 over those 11 home starts.

"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. It was Green Bay's longest punt return of the year and helped set up the Packers' first scoring drive of the afternoon. I thought we were ready for the game. However, given the Packers' lack of success and the lofty line, it's the Cardinals who are actually getting 51% of bets and almost 65% of dollars (check out the updated betting data here). "We haven't played very well", Rodgers said.

McCarthy was in his 13th season as coach. I felt coming into it, the meeting structure and so forth, we just were not sharp enough, and you know, you can make a case they made one more play than we did.

"This was a game that we have won in the past, expected to win", said Rodgers, who threw for 233 yards on 31 completions.

The Cardinals added a field goal with under two minutes to play in the game, to bring the score to 20-17. Even Rodgers fighting through a knee injury he suffered in the opener was nowhere close to excusing their level of play this season.
