More like Total Bullshit.
(Sorry, couldn’t resist)
On a serious note, Monty offers this at the end of his schedule breakdown:
The Packers miss the playoffs for the second consecutive year, and the only good thing that can come out of all of this heartache happens – Mike McCarthy is fired. If anyone has Bill Cowher’s number, let’s be sure to get him on speed dial around week 7.
Look, I get it. The Packers were 6-10 last year. People are pissed. But McCarthy getting fired would NOT be a good thing. Not even remotely. Of course now that he has competence on his side, defensively speaking, my bet is that everyone will be calling him a borderline genius again by the end of the year. Me? I’ll stick with ‘good football coach’ and let the chips fall where they may.
On a side note, I find it funny that Monty would pine for Cowher, a coach who suffered through a few losing seasons of his own, not to mention the thud of an 8-8 follow up to his Super Bowl championship, won after many, many years of tenure. McCarthy has the capacity to be every bit the coach Cowher was – he just needs time on the job and not to be kicked to the curb the first sign of trouble.
