Green Bay Packers fire coach Mike McCarthy

Green Bay Packers fire coach Mike McCarthy

The Green Bay Packers are now in the market for a new head coach following today's 20-17 loss to the Arizona Cardinals.

Joe Philbin will be the interim head coach.

Philibin now will oversee the disappointing Packers for the remaining four games on their schedule.

Cover 2's "On the Clock" discussed Mark Murphy's decision to fire head coach Mike McCarthy.

Before the McCarthy news broke, he said in his postgame press conference that he wasn't sure what might happen down the stretch.

As I've said and written many times before (here, here, here, here, here, and here), McCarthy's Achilles heel as a head coach and an offensive play-designer was his rigid inflexibility and inability to design passing concepts that would regularly beat even the most rudimentary of defenses. Sure, there are some cold temperatures here and there, as well as some wind and rain concerns (Cardinals-Packers, Vikings-Patriots, Bears-Giants), but it doesn't look like snow is going to be an issue. "Other than that, we'll focus on what's in front of us". Fans of course won't forget the memorable 2010 campaign, which resulted in a Super Bowl victory.

There is also a line of nine vessels to leave the Azov Sea and eight other vessels are standing by near the port berths. Kiev accused Russian Federation , which annexed Crimea from Ukraine in 2014, of launching "a new phase of aggression ".

It all but sealed McCarthy's fate with the team.

We're past the point of performance overly mattering in this situation considering Lewis can't win a playoff game and has only eight wins against the Steelers in 16 years. Whoever that might be, the least of his problems is quarterback, barring more injuries to Rodgers, who turned 35 on Sunday. Arizona had lost three straight games as it walked onto the cold grass of Lambeau Field on Sunday. But Mason Crosby's 49-yard attempt, which would have sent the game to overtime, as time expired was no good.

Cardinals rookie Josh Rosen struggled for much of the afternoon, but hit Larry Fitzgerald for a sliding 32-yard completion on third-and-23 to help set up Gonzalez's winning kick. Is players' health not being vetted properly before they join the team? His time with the Packers is officially done.

This year, Rodgers hurt his left knee in the season opener, though he is feeling better now.

Philbin has previously been head coach of the Miami Dolphins and is in his second stint coaching with the Packers, serving as the teams OC from 2007-2011 before taking the job in Miami.

A guy like Oklahoma's Lincoln Riley, or former Texas Tech head coach Kliff Kingsbury, may be attractive in a hypothetical sense, but would either of those men have the credibility to face up with Aaron Rodgers and command his respect?
