Cardinals stun fading Packers for rare win at Lambeau

"As a result, I made the hard decision to relieve Mike McCarthy of his role as head coach, effective immediately", Packers CEO and President Mark Murphy said in a statement.

A block from Lambeau Field is "Mike McCarthy Way", which runs parallel with "Lombardi Avenue" and intersects with "Holmgren Way" in Green Bay.

So the fact that the Steve Wilks-coached, Josh Rosen-quarterbacked Cardinals foiled the Mike McCarthy-coached, Aaron Rodgers-quarterbacked Packers 20-17 only cemented both teams in their rightful spots near the bottom of the NFL.

That remark had unsettled investors who feared it signaled that the Fed would continue raising rates well into the coming months. For his part, Trump has sought repeatedly to shift blame for any economic troubles to the Fed and its rate increases.


Can Aaron Rodgers and the Green Bay Packers make a final push for the playoffs?

"Mike has been a terrific head coach and leader of the Packers for 13 seasons, during which time we experienced a great deal of success on and off the field", Murphy said.

McCarthy has been on thin ice with the franchise for quite some time, as the team has only reached the NFC Championship game once since the Super Bowl win in 2010. But this season was arguably his worst during his entire tenure, as the Packers compiled a 4-8-1 record, and Sunday's loss to the Cardinals sealed his fate. It's not like we're getting blown out in a bunch of games. McCarthy has obvious ties to the Cleveland front office, most-notably general manager John Dorsey, vice president of player personnel Alonzo Highsmith and assistant general manager Eliot Wolf. But the Packers' brutal season, along with playoff failures in recent years, sealed his fate.

"That is our role as swing tackle and swing guard", said McCray, who started the first three games of the season at right guard.

Green Bay also had its longest kickoff return of the season on Sunday with running back Jamaal Williams bringing one back for 30 yards in the second quarter.

It's more than fair to assume the Packers could realistically search for a new head coach as it seems the marriage between McCarthy and Rodgers might be coming to an end.
