Why you don’t hire bad coaches from bad teams

I’m not going to be one of those guys who gets all on the Packers bandwagon and then acts like they are the Cleveland Browns once they lose a single game (for the record, I predicted the Pack to have 5 wins this year).  I am going to say, however, that McCarthy completely coached his way out of a win last night.  I’m not so much mad that the Packers lost, but very mad that I dedicated 3 hours of my life to watching such ugly football.  The game wasn’t a hard-fought classic rivalry as much as it was a sloppily-played, poorly coached stinkfest.  The entire 2nd half was a new team.  How do you call yourself a coach and only managed to score three second half points to their 20?  Especially when the Bears changed next to nothing about their game plan.  McCarthy changed everything about his offense after the half.  The quick slants were gone, the deep go routes were gone, the running game was gone.  It was nothing but quick dump-off after dump-off for 2-3 yard gains.  And what terrible mismanagement of a two-minute drill.  You have 18 seconds left and no timeouts, so you throw a ball toward the middle of the field, short of the endzone?  I see better clock management out of high school teams.  Last night, Mike McCarthy was who we thought he was.
