Is Mike McCarthy becoming so stubborn he’s hurting his own team?
Green Bay Packers head coach Mike McCarthy has many admirable qualities, both as a head coach and as a person.
One such quality is that he is incredibly loyal. McCarthy has stood by his coaches and his players when someone’s ability or dedication has been called into question. That is something so many people struggle with. When the stuff hits the fan, someone usually goes under the bus. That’s just the way society works, but such is not the case with McCarthy.
That said, at what point does loyalty evolve into stubbornness and when does that stubbornness turn into a negative instead of a positive?
That is the point where McCarthy has fallen in the eyes of many Packers fans as well as beat writers in the wake of the Packers’ stunning 45-31 season-ending playoff defeat at the hands of the San Francisco 49ers.
After yet another defensive implosion in the postseason, McCarthy remained so steadfast in his support of his a...

Lovie Smith and the 4-3 defense for the Packers? I don’t think so.
There has been a lot of talk among Green Bay Packers fans regarding Dom Capers and his future as the team’s defensive coordinator. Saturday’s postseason loss to the San Francisco 49ers was the anvil that broke the camel’s back after a 2011 season of defensive agony, despite their overall improvement in 2012...
GREEN BAY, Wis. -- All season long, a carousel of running backs spun in and out of the Packers' offense. From James Starks to Cedric Benson to Alex Green to Ryan Grant to DuJuan Harris, there were plenty of serviceable players for quarterback Aaron Rodgers to hand the ball to.
That variety has its advantages, but most teams aren't going to carry five running backs with relatively...
GREEN BAY, Wis. -- The Packers seem like a team that could be making a habit out of trips to the Super Bowl. Armed with the NFL's reigning Most Valuable Player at quarterback, a talented group of wide receivers, an elite pass-rusher in Clay Matthews and a young core built through the draft, Green Bay's roster has most of the important pieces needed to attain that level of...
After his team got torched by the 49ers’ read-option last week, Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers says he doesn’t believe it will last long.

Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers said he will not play in this year's Pro Bowl because of multiple injuries, according to ESPN Milwaukee's Jason Wilde.
Rodgers certainly deserved the honor, completing 67.2 percent of his passes for 4,295 yards, 39 touchdowns and eight interceptions while leading his team to the NFC North title and the divisional playoffs.
After a disappointing playoff loss last Saturday to the 49ers, the Green Bay Packers need to evaluate the direction their defense is headed in under Dom Capers.
The Packers defense gave up almost 600 yards to the 49ers offense, which is completely uncalled for.
During his closing press conference, Packers head coach Mike McCarthy was asked about Capers’ future.
McCarthy said it...
