Packers fans clamoring for Mike McCarthy to be fired

Geoff Burke-USA TODAY Sports

By and large, the 2018 season has been a rough one for Green Bay Packers coach Mike McCarthy, and fans seem to be ready for a change. Sunday night’s game against the Minnesota Vikings continued that trend.

First, McCarthy was ripped for his conservative play calling in the first half.

Things didn’t get any better in the second. With the game tied and Green Bay short of the 50, McCarthy elected to go for it on fourth-and-one. The formation he ran was, at best, questionable.

This made McCarthy a punching bag on Twitter, with plenty of people calling for him to be fired.

We even got a philosophical question about it.

Well, Clay Helton was retained on Sunday. McCarthy will likely be fired following this season, if not before. If he is retained, we only hope that the backlash matches what USC got for keeping Helton.
