The Green Bay Packers have now found themselves between a rock and a hard place. Last night, the team went out in U’S. Bank Stadium and lost yet another game to the Minnesota Vikings to drop them to 4-6-1 on the year, and basically have to win out the rest of the season to give themselves a chance of qualifying for the playoffs.
Packers head coach Mike McCarthy has been rumored to receive his walking papers if the team misses the playoffs. McCarthy was asked about his own performance and acknowledged it needs to improve.
“I understand why you’re asking the questions. That’s part of the deal. We’re about winning football games. We didn’t do enough. I didn’t do enough. I need to coach better,” McCarthy said.
McCarthy’s playcalling continues to be predictable, especially during the few times he does decided to go for it on 4th down, just as he did last night against the Vikings. At this point, a playoff berth probably wouldn’t be enough to save his job with the Packers.
