Packers part ways with Mike McCarthy

Following their defeat to the Cardinals on Sunday, the Green Bay Packers chose to part ways with longtime head coach Mike McCarthy.

In 2010, McCarthy's Packers won Super Bowl XLV with a 31-25 win over the Pittsburgh Steelers.

Green Bay now sits at 4-8-1, which makes them one of the most disappointing teams in the league this season, given all the talent on their roster, and one of the best quarterbacks in NFL history - Aaron Rodgers - under center. "As a result, I made the hard decision to relieve Mike McCarthy of his role as head coach, effective immediately", Chief Executive Officer Mark Murphy said in the statement. Offensive coordinator Joe Philbin will take over as interim head coach, and the Packers will have a head start on the process of finding McCarthy's replacement.

Saudi Arabian Foreign Minister Adel al-Jubeir had admitted that the murder of the scribe was "a mistake and a rogue operation". In private, however, the Washington Post columnist didn't hold back and reprimanded the Saudi prince , CNN reported .

The Green Bay Packers have fired Mike McCarthy after 13 years as head coach. The temperature was 34 degrees with a wind chill factor of 23, snow was coming down sideways, wind gusts were between 30 and 35 miles per hour and the Green Bay Packers had to win to have any hope of making the playoffs.

Rodgers was asked after the game - but before McCarthy's firing was announced - how much blame offensive players should get if the Packers made a coaching change after the season.

And while Sunday's game won't fit in the all-time highlight film alongside the Cards' two recent playoff wins over the Packers, it was attractive on a dreary day during what had been a dreary season. After Sunday, that won't be the case anymore.

In spite of pushing Cilic hard in the first set, he lost the last four points of the tiebreak and never threatened a comeback. In the 11th game already Cilic had a great chance to break Tsonga made a unforced error and gave the opponent the second set.

McCarthy's axing also comes amid reports of tension between the 55-year-old and quarterback Aaron Rodgers.

"We haven't played very well, " Rodgers said before being told McCarthy was sacked. We've had a number of opportunities. "We were a little above halfway at halftime, and then toward the end of the game, I wasn't coming out". Rodgers should have a few excellent years left.

"I hate to repeat myself, but it's applicable". So we're going to do what we always do; we're going to represent the Packers the right way, I know that. McDaniels brings temperament issues to the position, but if he can keep things under control, he's got the mind to expand Green Bay's offense. "They quit. They didn't even want to play today".
