The Green Bay Packers’ head coach and offensive playcaller Mike McCarthy has been with the team since 2006.
The Packers are the first head coaching job for McCarthy and he has had tremendous success. He has a career record of 124-69-1. He has also led the Packers to six division titles: 2007, 2011-2014, and 2016.
McCarthy led the Packers to the NFC Championship in 2007 with Brett Favre but fell short to the New York Giants in overtime. A few years later in 2010, McCarthy coached a 10-6 Wild Card team to the Super Bowl where they beat the Pittsburgh Steelers 31-25. McCarthy has never made it back to the big game since then.
After making the playoffs the past eight seasons and only winning one Super Bowl, how much longer will McCarthy have a job in Green Bay? He is an outstanding coach and playcaller, but the fact that the Packers always makes it to the playoffs and lose is a huge problem. It is an issue that causes many coaches to lose their jobs.
Especially being the head coach of the historic Green Bay Packers, the standards are very high. McCarthy has definitely reached those standards during his career with Green Bay, and he needs to continue it in order to stay.
Having coached two of the greatest quarterbacks ever, Brett Favre and now Aaron Rodgers, there aren’t any excuses why McCarthy can’t take them back to a Super Bowl. By the time Rodgers’ time is up, McCarthy and the Packers should have a total of three Super Bowl victories.
The Packers are contenders every single season to win the big game, but this upcoming season is like no other. They must lift the Lombardi trophy next February and bring a world championship back to Title Town. McCarthy’s job depends on it.
