10A new era at Lambeau
Following the justifiable firing of head coach Mike McCarthy, the Packers start a new era of football in Green Bay Sunday against an equally pedestrian Atlanta Falcons team. More so than their attempt to even remain in the NFC Playoff conversation, we’re going to be interested to see how the Packers respond to interim head coach Joe Philbin.
This is a team that’s been headed by McCarthy since all the way back in 2006. It’s a team that’s really not accustomed to change. Adding to the intrigue here is the fact that associate head coach Winston Moss seemingly called out Aaron Rodgers following the McCarthy firing. Moss himself was then fired. Is Green Bay over this drama or will it bleed on to the field Sunday at Lambeau?
