I will admit, when he was hired, I said "Who? Oh, the guy who used to be the offensive coordinator for the Saints." when I heard that Mike McCarthy had been hired to be Head Coach of the Green Bay Packers. I will also admit that I was severely disappointed that Brad Childress chose to sign on as Head Coach of the Vikings without even interviewing for the Packers' job. And now, I only have one thing to say.
For those who haven't heard, Brad Childress has once again gone about making a complete fool of himself this week by blabbing his teams business to the media. To make matters worse, he appears to be acting tough in regards to his dealings with Bill Belichick and a conversation the two had about waiver moves this past weekend. I won't bore you with the details (you can read them for yourself here) but suffice it to say, Childress is a buffoon. Not only has this "offensive mastermind" come in and completely ruined the Vikings offense (thanks Brad!) but he has done nothing but act like someone that's in way, way over his head in regards to running an NFL team.
Which brings me to McCarthy.
He's been calm. He's been humble. He's chewed Brett out when he deserved it for every camera to see (which hadn't happened to ol' Brett since 1998) He hasn't said one negative word about the perceived lack of offensive play-makers brought in by Ted Thompson. He's just gone to work, kept the majority of the team in town for extensive off-season work, and weathered every storm that's come his way. The man is class personified. Again, thank the cosmic fates that were in play that sent McCarthy to Green Bay and Childress to Minnesota.
