After 13 years at the helm of the Green Bay Packers, head coach Mike McCarthy was let go following the Packers’ 20-17 loss to the Arizona Cardinals.

The dismissal isn’t completely a shock, as there have been rumblings throughout the season about the warmth of McCarthy’s seat, but it does come as a surprise the decision was made before the season ended.

WEEI’s Gerry Callahan and Hall of Fame quarterback/FOX analyst Troy Aikman had two very different opinions on if the timing was right to sever ties with McCarthy, and they aired them out on Twitter.

Callahan did reply back, and that’s where the beef stops (for now, at least).


Times have been tough in Green Bay lately, but maybe the many years of success should’ve bought McCarthy a few more weeks.
