Mike McCarthy talks about life as the champ

Super Bowl Football

Mike McCarthy hasn’t appeared on Dave Letterman or a WWE event, but his life has changed subtly since winning the Super Bowl.

I still go to Starbucks every morning. Got a cup with ‘Congratulations!’ on it today – that was nice,” McCarthy said at his season-ending press conference.   “But other than that, they still charged me. So everything’s staying the same.”

McCarthy was meeting with his coordinators Wednesday and Thursday to go over their season-ending evaluations.   The rest of the coaching staff was given time off until the NFL Scouting Combine.  G.M. Ted Thompson is grinding away with his staff on pre-Combine meetings.

While McCarthy says most things haven’t changed, he’s still had a few crazy experiences.  Like talking to the President, for instance.

    Starbucks sucks. The champs should fine better coffee shops to frequent.

    How does this have anything to do with Favre? Can’t you just enjoy the moment with the team that we have? I’m as big a fan as any, and I was hurt and embittered by the Favre fiasco. As I saw it, both sides were at fault. Favre had been doing the waffling for far too many years to NOT recognize there were negative consequences to the organization. The organization did the right thing, but they handled it poorly at the time.
    That said, get OVER it! Favre gave us some GREAT moments that will always be a part of Packer tradition, and deservedly so.
    We now have a terrific, likable team, with the prospects of being pretty darn good for a long time to come. Be a fan of the Team and the Organization (even the city and state), but realize the players come and go, some enjoying their time there, some not. Some leave happy and fulfilled, some leave with unfinished business or bitterness. It doesn’t change what the Packers mean to me one bit.

    You win a city a damn Super Bowl, and they can’t treat you to a lousy cup of coffee?

    (And I do mean “lousy”, that Starbucks crap is horrible!)

  11. momsasaynt says: Feb 10, 2011 10:47 AM

    yeah keep it classy Packer fans. Was happy for ya but with the continued Favre hate, now not so much.

  12. favr4prez says: Feb 10, 2011 11:18 AM

    Hate?? We don’t “hate” the guy… But as a Viking- he sure was loathed. It all worked out in the end though! Let’s take a look shall we??

    2010 Packer Dream Season

    1.) Favre comes back for one more run… bumb ankle and all.
    2.) Favre and Vikes fans get what they want… Randy Moss.
    3.) A-Rodge and Packers sweep the Vikings. Favre adds bumb shoulder and hip to the list.
    4.) Favre gets accused of sexting. Has his schmeckle plastered all over the net.
    5.) Moss and Vikes lose to Patriots. Favre takes one on the chin, Moss gets cut by Childress.
    6.) Childress gets canned.
    7.) FAVRE GOES DOWN!! Streak ends…
    8.) Metrodome collapses.
    9.) Favre finishes season on the bench. Tells Bears Peppers to “Go beat the Packers.”
    10.) Favre watches as the Pack topples the Bears TWICE in successful quest to bring the Title back to Titletown.

    Priceless… couldn’t have written up a more perfect script.

    Can he afford the lazy eye surgery now? I get a headache watching his press conferences and he’s looking to the right and left at the same time. I think that is what prolonged Rogers’ concussions…lol

    Just a heads up,when Canada starts laughing at us,we’re doomed.

    Us Patriots fans know a little something about good coaching. I’ve always thought McCarthy was a big bumbling dope, but after what I saw from his squad in Foxboro this year, I started to believe in him. After that playoff run, the guy is a stud on the Sean Payton level.

    Congrats on being Champs Green Bay, and thanks again for further stamping the Patriots status as Team of the Decade/past 10 years by beating the Steelers!

    Favre did this to himself and deserves all the scorn until he apologizes to the team if he ever wants to restore his legacy with the organization and fans. He gave the Packers some really great years and will go down as one of the all time greats, so we can’t forget that. However, he really wore out his welcome and pushed the GM and coaches to the limit with his gigantic diva-like ego and waffling. He made himself bigger than the team and organization and threw a terrible temper tantrum like his grandchild when the organization, which had moved on, wouldn’t take him back. He flat out refused to mentor any of the young QBs, especially Aaron Rodgers who was beloved by all the other teammates.

    No, the organization didn’t do Favre dirty. Favre did the organization dirty. If Favre ever wants to ingratiate himself to the Packers again for PR purposes and retired jersey ceremonies, HE will have to grovel back. The Packers would gladly take him back (not as a player though), but Favre has to make some amends.

    I wonder how many hits the ol’ ‘Fire TT and Mike McCarthy” Facebook page is getting these days?

    ======================================
    God you Pack fans are some self righteous tools. Favre owes neither the organization or the fans of Green Bay an apology. If you think he will you are all as dumb as sheep.

    All these fans cant understand why the Packer fans dislike Favre because they can not relate. There has never been such an iconic player in football go andplay with the teams biggest rival. Packer fans dont really care that he wanted to play just the fact it was the Vikings or nobody. Can you imagine Elway showing up in a Raiders uniform or Marino in a jet uniform. How about Aikman in an Eagle jersey. How about Bradshaw in Cleveland colors. You all would be yelling at the top ofyour lungs that they were traitors.
    Oh well just like being Super Bowl 45 champs, you other fans just cant relate.

    I love Brett Favre.

    He dangled that prize right in front of Viking fans and then snatched it away in typical Favre fashion. What followed was pure brilliance as we were treated to Viking fans crying about conspiracies, basically reaffirming every other NFL fan’s assumptions that they are the dumbest fans in the NFL.

    Awesome.

    “God you Pack fans are some self righteous tools. Favre owes neither the organization or the fans of Green Bay an apology. If you think he will you are all as dumb as sheep.”

    Do Packer fans really give a $hit about what you Viking ‘fan’s think? No we don’t so shut the hell up.

    Just think of it this way, Favre could have got paid 20 mil by the packers and had his full legacy intact, he and Deanna could have been sitting in the booth next to Bart and Cherry Starr cheering on a superbowl victory, he could have been in the locker room congardulating guys he played with…..instead, he threw a 2nd pick to dash the hopes of another team just short of a superbowl, he played by far his worst year, and like several gyuys that didn’t know when to quit limped off the field a shell of himself, and the whole picture gate thing would never have happened……………Bad choice Brett, you let your ego and the people around you ruin something that could truly have been great
