Packers Mike McCarthyWe don’t always agree with his play calling (heck HE doesn’t always agree with his play calling), but there’s one thing you cannot deny…

The Packers have one of the best head coaches in the business.

Most Dangerous Substance on Earth - Packer Offense

 


Since his arrival at Green Bay, McCarthy has made his mark on history. While it’s true he inherited a talented team, he’s been the mastermind who has taken that team to great heights.

Four times in a row the Packers have won their division. That’s a franchise record that even Lombardi never accomplished. Five times McCarthy has led the team to 11+ wins. That’s pretty exciting when 11 wins is generally enough to earn the division title and a trip to the playoffs.

100 wins NFLHe is the fastest active coach to make it to 100 wins.

McCarthy is one of only two coaches to have taken a number 6 seeded team to three road wins and a Super Bowl victory.

Coach McCarthy ranks 2nd in overall career win percentage.

Overall wins for a Packer coachAnd, he is currently the second winningest coach in franchise history (which is saying a lot). He now has 101 wins. While he has a long way to go to catch Lambeau, give him time. He’ll make it there and pick up several more Super Bowl trophies on his way.

We’ve repeatedly discussed how fortunate the Packers were to have a player the caliber of Aaron Rodgers step onto the scene after many seasons with Brett Favre. We should also remember that we’re also fortunate to have the man who puts all the chess pieces in the best place to win the game…

Mike McCarthy.
