Cardinals stun fading Packers for rare win at Lambeau

Cardinals stun fading Packers for rare win at Lambeau

The Green Bay Packers have fired coach Mike McCarthy and made offensive co-ordinator Joe Philbin the interim head coach. Despite the fact that the 2018 Packers haven't been very good, they had no business losing to the Arizona Cardinals, led by rookie quarterback Josh Rosen, at Lambeau Field in snowy temperatures.

Moreso than anything, McCarthy fully appreciated everything about being the head coach of the Packers, falling love with the job, the tradition and small-town living of the Green Bay area.

"Mike has been a terrific head coach and leader of the Packers for 13 seasons, during which time we experienced a great deal of success on and off the field", Murphy said.

A busy offseason awaits for general manager Brian Gutekunst as he looks to build the roster, and Mark Murphy will also have a big decision to make at head coach.

McCarthy shook up his coaching staff, including bringing Philbin back as offensive co-ordinator and hiring Mike Pettine to replace Dom Capers as defensive co-ordinator.

This year, Rodgers hurt his left knee in the season opener, though he is feeling better now.

The US against France makes up the fourth quarter-final, with the semi-finals and final to be played tomorrow as well. The fifth place play-off saw Scotland beaten 29-0 by South Africa, who scored five tries in the opening 12 minutes.

The Green Bay Packers likely needed to win out in order to make the National Football League postseason and Aaron Rodgers' team had what seemed to be an easy victory today.

Kumerow joined the Packers' practice squad during the final week of the 2017 regular season and made a strong bid at a roster spot in training camp with six catches for 190 yards and two touchdowns in his first two preseason games last summer.

"Yeah, a lot probably".

"We didn't play well today", McCarthy said. We've had a number of opportunities.

Cobb's return on Sunday didn't help, with the Packers just 3 of 14 on third downs. "We got it going in the second quarter, and I don't know if we felt like they were just going to roll over at that point, up 10-7, but obviously we played three series in the third quarter and didn't do anything and then we had couple decent drives in the fourth but we just didn't play very well".

"We did that! We did that", some emotional players yelled.
