Btw, he did advance to the AFC Championship game two years in a row w/ Mark friggin Sanchez - but you think he should have done a lot more w/ those QBs huh?
I guess he should study MM and how he guided the Packers to greatness this year w/ Hundley.
And MM got the Packers to the NFC title game last season with a team so undermatched you said they had no business being there. So he to then should get credit if NFC title games are the new benchmark.
Sanchez is 5 times the talent Hundley is, which isn't saying much for Hundley since he's terrible. If Sanchez was the backup QB this season with the Packers, they have another 2 wins IMO.
This is a dumb debate. Going back and forth battling over opinions about a guy who's not even an NFL coach anymore.
I’m on record with MM staying. However. After what we witnessed this year, it was Aaron Rodgers and NOT Mike McCarthy that “got the packers to the NFC Title game”. You know better to even try to suggest it
So when Rodgers succeeds it's him. When he plays bad MM is a crap play caller.
Remember for about 10 games Rodgers was playing terrible football. All the blame went on MM and the lack of talent. Then Rodgers says they're going to win out and he completely did a 180 and started playing fantastic. Then it was all Rodgers and MM got no credit.
Though the talent level was exactly the same on the field.
Of course Rodgers get's a ton load of credit, without him the team is just not good.
But you just can not give a coach blame when the team struggles without giving him praise when they succeed.
If you go back and look at some of the best coaches of all time, the majority of the time they have a star QB. Or just take all of sports, star coaches normally have star players.
They go hand and hand.
