McCarthy looks weak. He knows it. Somehow, he must project strength at this press conference in the days ahead. Lets face it: he was bullied. Now he must convince the team he controls the bully. Aint gonna happen.
Huh? McCarthy is the only one who comes out of this looking halfway competent, in my opinion. And how was he bullied exactly? Thompson has been, without question, but McCarthy, especially since the beginning of training camp, has been the only one talking what even resembles any modicum of sense.
