Despite much success during the McCarthy era, Green Bay fans have grown increasingly frustrated with him over the last few seasons.
The Packers lost to the Arizona Cardinals on Sunday and fell to 4-7-1 on the season, virtually - but not mathematically - eliminating them from playoff contention. He was the coach most responsible for the development of Aaron Rodgers from unfinished Cal quarterback to perhaps the most talented player at this position the game has ever seen.
If that wasn't enough, Kumerow christened his first National Football League appearance with an 11-yard catch from Aaron Rodgers in the fourth quarter. "They quit. They didn't even want to play today". Of the starting five linemen on Sunday against the Green Bay Packers, only one, left guard Mike Iupati, was expected to be a starter this year. Following the team's disappointing loss against the Arizona Cardinals at home, the Packers made the quick decision to make the firing of their head coach official.
The quarterback hinted at discord in October after a 22-0 win over Buffalo when he said the Packers had been "terrible on offense".
Rodgers said his focus was getting his teammates to "play with that pride" and focus on the next four games.
McCarthy shook up his coaching staff, including bringing Philbin back as offensive coordinator and hiring Mike Pettine to replace Dom Capers as defensive coordinator. So we're going to do what we always do; we're going to represent the Packers the right way, I know that. I think it's a mistake. "I'm not going to act like I know what the hell I'm going to do tomorrow when they get in here. Just one man's opinion". Dome team,  degrees, snow, wind, it's playing right into our hands and we just came out flat.
