McCarthy promises action after latest Packers fold

Philadelphia Eagles  v Green Bay Packers Getty Images

It’s rare to see Packers coach Mike McCarthy show a lot of emotion, but his team apparently saw plenty of it yesterday.

And from the tone and text of his remarks after an embarrassing 27-13 loss to the Eagles, changes could be coming soon.

“I’m disappointed as the head coach of this team because we have a recurring issue that I have to get fixed, and we’ll get on that tomorrow,” McCarthy said, via Bob McGinn of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel.

It wasn’t so much the loss as the fact the Eagles held the ball for the final nine minutes and 32 seconds of the game, and the Packers couldn’t get off the field. After the Bears won last week with an 18-play drive, the Packers have a right to be steamed with the play of their defense late in games.

“I can take a loss, but I can’t take us losing in the manner we’ve lost these last two weeks,” nose tackle Ryan Pickett said. “Gotta get off the field, man. Gotta give our offense another opportunity, and we’re just not.

“It’s bad. There ain’t no other way you can put it. We didn’t do a good job of finishing, and that’s the hurtful part of this loss.”

What that means in terms of accountability remains to be seen but McCarthy’s tone makes it clear something’s coming.

    By action, I hope MM means firing Capers to start with…

    Calm down Mike. The Eagles just play well when they’re not playing in front of the loons at the Linc. It’s the non home field advantage.

    Even if Rodgers was playing, Eagles still would have won that game. GB was simply out classed. Technically Foles was Eagles backup qb. Packers should take notes from Philly on how to have some qb depth just in case your media darling qb gets injured.

  7. taskforcefreddy says: Nov 11, 2013 9:22 AM

    What’s really troubling for me is that you play to the strengths of your players. In past 2 years GB drafted premier 4-3 defensive tackles in Nick Perry and Datone Jones (add Mike Neal to that list too) and are forcing them to play 3-4 defensive end or have tried converting them to outside LB opposite Clay Matthews. In the 3-4, your downfield lineman contain the QB and your rush outside LB’s get the sacks. For Green Bay right now, the defensive lineman are getting all the sacks which indicates the 3-4 scheme is failing and you’re not running the right system.

  8. rho1953 says: Nov 11, 2013 9:23 AM

    Agreed Nwfisch, address your problem. I think Capers has to go. I had hopes for the defense but this is starting to be a recurring issue. They can’t handle anything but the bottom feeding offenses anymore. It looks like opposing offenses know exactly what to expect from Capers. His second half defense is pathetic. It seems like every team they Packers play can move at will in the fourth quarter.

  9. Ted Thompson the Genius says: Nov 11, 2013 9:28 AM

    If he wants to get to the heart of the problem, he’ll try to convince the Packer “owners” to fire Ted Thompson. The players can’t help the fact that they aren’t talented. Rodgers always hid the flaws on this team. Welcome to the real world.

  10. longhairdontcare66 says: Nov 11, 2013 9:29 AM

    Should have fired Dom after the loss to the 49ers- long overdue.

  11. Carl Gerbschmidt says: Nov 11, 2013 9:32 AM

    I admit it’s been a tough haul these past two weeks, but one thing is obvious, Scott TOLZIEN is a rare gem of a player. Ted Thompson might be the greatest GM in NFL history.

  12. dougy1970 says: Nov 11, 2013 9:43 AM

    The Packers quit on the last drive when LeSean McCoy ran out the clock. It is rare to see an NFL team simply run out the clock with straight handoffs. It only really happens in college and high school. It was a gutless effort.

  13. tmac4454 says: Nov 11, 2013 9:49 AM

    I am glad that they lost twice. Fat boy could have gave Vince Young another shot!

  14. mikey77750 says: Nov 11, 2013 9:49 AM

    It’s official! Dom Capers is out as Defensive coordinator…

  15. purplepillager says: Nov 11, 2013 9:50 AM

    Filling your roster full of 4th, 5th, and 6th round draft picks looks like a genius move now, right? Go ahead and trust in Ted.

    This is what happens when you rely too heavily on an elite QB. Flynn is not going to save the day. There is no “next man up.” The season is over. The Packer fans just can’t see it yet.

  16. calistos77 says: Nov 11, 2013 9:51 AM

  18. 2manyconcussions says: Nov 11, 2013 9:53 AM

    Mediocre offense and soft defense. Amazing how much this Green Bay team resembles the Minnesota Vikings when they are without their star quarterback. Actually, MN has a running game, so they are different in that respect. So much loathing between the fans of these two teams and the pack is one injury away from looking like the Vikings.

  19. jonny42671 says: Nov 11, 2013 9:53 AM

  20. takeittothehizzy says: Nov 11, 2013 9:53 AM

    What a great organization the Packers are with 50 home grown players on the roster. Unfortunately, the only one who matters didn’t play yesterday.

  24. snowlock2013 says: Nov 11, 2013 10:07 AM

    Been saying all season, but for the fact they got lucky in the draft at the QB position, this team is crap.

  25. mobuccsfan says: Nov 11, 2013 10:07 AM

    I think they finally fire Capers–won’t do much to save their season this year with Rodgers out for a while still and no real serviceable QB–I mean Tolzien did alright and could do okay but I don’t think he is the answer for a true-backup either–not just yet; and maybe never will be. They fire Capers and bring in another QB just because they will need to have a backup to the backup with Wallace going down.

  26. packergalmke says: Nov 11, 2013 10:08 AM

    We’ve been hearing about the defensive flaws for the past 3 years. It’s like reliving the 1970s and 80s. Every draft since then, the top picks went to shore up the front line. I can’t believe they suck so much with such talent on the team. I’m thinking the season is pretty much over. Maybe next year.

  27. mobuccsfan says: Nov 11, 2013 10:08 AM

    One more thing about Capers–I feel that just like Kiffin in Dallas–they were great DCs at one point but I think the game has passed them by and their defenses just don’t work anymore due to the way the offense has changed with the QBs drafted now and of course all the rule changes/penalties.

  28. bigjim50010 says: Nov 11, 2013 10:10 AM

    This Packers defense reminds me a lot of Jay Cutler. They’ll play good for a little while to give you hope, then they start to stink up the place and play pathetic, uninspired football.

  34. wingsnwater says: Nov 11, 2013 10:27 AM

  35. thepvyharvin says: Nov 11, 2013 10:30 AM

    Listen to you self righteous Lombardi losers trying to come to grips with the fact you totally suck without Rodgy. You sausage stuffers come on every Vikings story there is, laughing at our lack of QB. Well, karma biting your huge @#@s now huh??

    You guys really are the bottom dwellers of the North. ….we are all laughing at you. 13 chumpionships cant save you now….

  36. faultylogic29 says: Nov 11, 2013 10:30 AM

    Apparently the sky is falling in internet Packer land. These comments are a little ridiculous. It’s possible, but I have a really hard time seeing the TT and McCarthy firing Capers in the middle of the season.

    Understandable first game, albeit devastating, INT from Tolzien in the end zone. Two missed field goals. The bigger problems are the linebackers getting no pressure and the terrible safety play. Still, it would have taken 3 plays going the other way (like Burnett not pass defending Tramon Williams on the Jackson TD, or Tramon coming up with the INT that went right through his hands late in the game) for this to have been a competitive game.

    There’s 7 games left. I think it’s just a little too early to give up. I think we’ve been a bit spoiled over the past few years.

  37. ruvelligwebuike says: Nov 11, 2013 10:40 AM

    This defense is the same defense it was since 2009. Gives up a ton of yards, but makes stops in the red zone and creates a ton of turnovers.

    Except the red zone stops and turnovers are gone…so it’s worthless.

    Too early to panic, but it has to be fixed. And I don’t think it’s all Capers. The secondary is just not making plays. The ghosts of Tramon Williams, Casey Hayward and Morgan Burnett are out there instead of the real thing. I can’t remember them making a play this year. (Hayward was hurt, I know.)

    Simpson out of jail and you get Jolly out of prison

  39. stellarperformance says: Nov 11, 2013 10:47 AM

    I was very impressed with Tolzien. The guy was activated last Wednesday, had one run-through with the No. 1′s at practice last week, had never been on an NFL field in uniform, and completed passes to ten different receivers.

    He’s already better than the Vikings QB’s. The Packers need to go 3-3 while Rodgers is out, and I have all the faith they will do so.

    They will still win the division and they will go far in the postseason. The ability to laugh last at the haters will be sweeter than usual.

  42. skittlesareyum says: Nov 11, 2013 10:55 AM

    Funny how everyone is saying the team is awful without Rodgers. I remember after Flynn’s big game vs Detroit everyone was saying Rodgers is simply a system QB.

    Which is it?

  43. aldante66 says: Nov 11, 2013 11:00 AM

    This is actually hillareous to me. Its like saying, gee if I get really, really, really mad, not just angry but really really really mad at my players, they will get better.

    You know if you scream at a receiver its a proven fact that his speed will increase from a 4.5 to a 4.3 overnight.

    If you totally get into the faces of those dbacks who cannot tackle, proven fact, most go on the pro bowl as bone crushing tacklers.

    How can you, as a coach, get angry at guys, you selected in the 5th, 6th, 7th rounds and some are undrafteds to boot – guys 31 other teams passed on for good reason, and expect them to play NFL football to high standards.

    Its like taking bums off the street, coaching them up and hoping they will be pro bowlers some day.

    Even the worst teams in football have some guys on the d line who have speed and can get to the passer. Some teams have several.
    Raji, Jolly and Pickett are not pass rushers. They have no speed. So why are they playing. To stop the run of course stupid but the problem is, when they are on the field the running backs are running wide and picking up 20 and 30 yards a pop like yesterdays game.
    I think all the dbacks could be replaced, plus the three losers above, plus 4 linebackers nobody ever heard of, plus Newhouse, Sherrod.
    This team if they started now would need four good drafts to rebuild.

    The Packers are 5-4, if you would have told me at the beginning of the season that Aaron Rodgers, Randall Cobb, Jermichael Finley, Clay Matthews, Nick Perry, James Jones, Casey Hayward and Morgan Burnett among other would all miss significant time I would have guessed their record would be worse.

    As bad as that game was to watch yesterday, they still were in position to score 33 points. Int in the endzone, near miss TD by Nelson and 2 missed FGs all with a 3rd string QB.

    Until the Playoffs start and GB isn’t playing I won’t concede this season, unlike Viking fans who are now rooting for their own team to lose so they can get themselves a high draft pick.

  49. blakeden says: Nov 11, 2013 11:32 AM

    Not a Packer fan but Tolzien cannot be blamed. He gets thrown into the fire with minimal practice time and people are calling for his head. Not one of us couch coaches could even carry that kids helmet. As far as Viking fans and there vast knowledge misery loves company I guess.

    So where are all those so-called football “experts” now who claimed that the Packers are a system offense and that Rodgers was overrated? Hopefully the Monday morning armchair QBs will finally put aside their bias and acknowledge that Rodgers is a great QB.

    The Pack will be just fine on offense when Rodgers returns, and can still make the playoffs fairly easily. The problem is after the regular season — the Pack defense just isn’t strong enough to make a long playoff run.

  56. thestrategyexpert says: Nov 11, 2013 12:08 PM

    He just needs to show MORE confidence in his players, yeah that’ll do it. Don’t try to get good football players, just have lousy players and believe in them twice as hard. His style of football coaching is lunacy.

    I’m disappointed that YOU are the head coach of this team, because you suck really bad at it. This team has no GM or HC that has any clue what they are doing.

  57. shlort says: Nov 11, 2013 12:10 PM

    First off, you don’t fire your DC half way through the season and expect results from that. They defensive system was put in place by Capers and Capers shoud be given a chance to work the problems out of it.

    The pass rush is there, and they drafted for that. The problem with the Packers D is the DBs. WRs are not supposed to be wide open on any given play. Breakdowns happen, but the Packers DBs break down on every play. It has a lot to do with the coverage scheme, and good WRs find holes, that is just the way it is.

    With the the salary cap it is nearly impossible to have a great offense and a great defense. They has to be some balance, but you cannt fill every starting roster spot with superstars. That can be developed over time, but you have to realize it is hit and miss.

    Capers biggest problem is that his game plan seems to be the same all the time. The adjustments just aren’t there. If a slot guy is coming open across the middle, a D should not let it happen more than a couple times before they adjust to it. Another thing Capers seems to not plan for is the opposing QB. If you know the QB, you should be able to game plan for him. The guys working under Capers seem to be less than willing to take charge of their particular discipline. Either Capers is a control freak, or the assistants under him are not doing their jobs.

    Anyway, it is deeper than making wholesale changes in the staff. The current staff needs to prepare the players better. Look for better play coming from GBs D. The players have the talent. All that is needed now is to adjust these players will to use that talent to make plays, especially in the turnover department.

    Raji, Jolly and Pickett are not pass rushers. They have no speed. So why are they playing.
    _______________________________

    First, you must have an understanding of the 3-4 scheme. The need for big guys in the middle is so they take up space along the line. The pass rushers are the LBs, not the line. The premise for the 3-4 is to be able to stop the run with big guys plugging the gaps, while being able to get to the QB on pass plays with speedy LBs.

    That is kinda how it works, and it is a good system that requires half way decent pass defense. The defensive backfield is not holding up their end of the deal for whatever reason. That can be fixed. These players are professionals.

    ——————————————-

    Ted has gotten away with not pursuing free agents who could immediately help and picking late round draft picks who actually make the first string on this team. I agree, its obvious having Rogers masked the pourous defense.

    Die hard fans think that the dbacks are just not playing well when in fact, they were terrible picks with little talent, still playing second rate college football but in the NFL.

    ________________

    That is like saying if the Vikings Defense would have made 1 stop in the Browns, Bears and Cowboys games, they would have the same record as the Packers.

    Why do all packer fans think when a Vikings fans says this stuff, it is all horse crap but when they say it, it is a legit excuse?

    A game is 60 minutes. Every play counts. No coulda woulda shoulda allowed. Not even for GB fans.

  62. aldante66 says: Nov 11, 2013 12:24 PM

    All the injuries on this team, and yes other teams are having injuries too, but this team has had them since the pre season.
    My only take, the team has a penchant for late round picks. Ted amasses hoards of 5,6,7 round picks by giving up second and third picks.
    The guys he is drafting were injury prone in college, smallish and slow. Just the kind of players that can’t stand up to the pounding of the NFL. Its that simple.

  63. jmorand47 says: Nov 11, 2013 12:33 PM

    WOW, 18 play drives one week, 9 minute drives the next week. The defense can’t get off the field. This all sounds too familiar. Since when did the Vikings start wearing Green and Gold?

    Now if Mike start saying, “I’m going to get this fixed” week after week. I’m going to get really suspicious.

    Welcome to my nightmare Packer fans!!

  64. filthymcnasty1 says: Nov 11, 2013 12:45 PM

    That last drive was ugly. They’ll need to correct these issues or it will spell an end to this seasons assault on a NFL record 14th World Championship.

    ______________________________

    I didn’t know Rodgers played Defense.

    The problem with the Defense has nothing to do with Rodgers. GB had ball control yesterday, they just couldn’t punch it in.

    Here is what the deal is. With Rodgers out, teams are like sharks circling. They see an opportunity to get a win (not a win against GB, just a win), and they play harder knowing their chances are better. GB as a team has a defeated mentality with the leader of the team not playing. Will they be willing to work harder to make up for it?

    Rodgers being out is a relief to the opposition. They don’t have to concentrate on stopping Rodgers when they are on Defense, and they don’t have to worry about outscoring GB when they are on Offense. It is all a state of mind.

    If Tolzien gets in there next week and plays sound football, moves the team and scores TDs, the Giants will be all befuddled about their game plan. GB will roll from there if opposing teams don’t have the “easy win” mentality. Couple that with a “we can do it” mentality from the Packers and who knows. Maybe I am right, maybe I am wrong. We’ll see how it goes from here on out.

    I don’t know about your team, but the Packers only get one first round pick each year, and it’s usually in the mid 20s somewhere.

    Three of the Packers last four first rounders (Bryan Bulaga, Derek Sherrod and Nick Perry have all missed significant time due to injuries.

    It’s hard to sign other teams first rounders because they either franchise them or resign them long term. If they don’t, it’s likely they are either busts, or over the hill and not worth the sallary they are asking for.

    The truth is, EVERY teams roster is filled out with late draft picks because you can’t have 53 1st, 2nd and 3rd round draft picks on a team. There’s just not enough of them to go around.

    Wow, let’s take it easy fellow Vike fans. You do know we play the Packers in a couple of weeks? I’m a firm believer that what goes around comes around, so let’s try to show a little restraint and class, shall we…

    Sure, it’s the defense….just keep thinking that, at least until after Thanksgiving!

    Go LIONS!!!!!!

    Don’t forget that the refs forgot what DPI was, and that McCoy was horrendously face masked not once, but TWICE with no call. The Foles fumble, which may or may not have actually been a fumble, should NOT have been overturned. There was not enough seen on the tape to change it. The refs did their best to hand Green Bay the game, but in the end, it just wasn’t enough.

    Other than saying a rosary or two for AR’s health, what can The Pack really do?

    I think Aaron Rodgers should take the rest of the season off just to make sure his bone is healed. No use in rushing it back. Besides, watching the packer fans squirm is great entertainment!

    Dear Bear’s, Lions and especially Viking fans.

    Please think a little more about what some of you are saying. The Packers hit a rough spot… Lets not forget they have been creaming you for the last few decades for the most part… And with Rodgers at the helm that will probably continue. You can say all you want about how we are a “One trick Pony”… And in some ways you may be right… But Packers fans can hold heads high… because that “One Trick Pony” means that he is better then the 53 man rosters the other NFC North teams have…

    Go PACK!

    The season is barely half over. The Packers have the ability to recover from their setbacks and make a move for the division title. It’s not too late.

    On the other hand, I think it is hiliarious that the Packer-hating Viking fans think our season is over ….as theirs (already) is.

    The fact that they are focusing more on the Packers troubles than getting any level of enjoyment from their own team speaks volumes.

    Once a loser…always a loser.

  75. stellarperformance says: Nov 11, 2013 2:53 PM

    Every team starts the season tied for first place. Now, barely past the halfway mark of this season, the Packers are one game out of first place.

    The Vikings are ONE SEASON out of first place.

    See the difference?

    Much as it pained me, before the season began I was hoping GB would hire Lovie Smith as D Coordinator. Much as it pains me, that’s what I still think. Got to shake up that D. To let a lumbering oaf like Cooper get wide open not just once but twice is inexcusable. Someone needs to go under the bus.
    But – Bleedgreen – the Iggles are lucky that the refs forgot what DPI was, because the Philly CBs were not even turning to look for the ball most of the game, just locking onto GB receivers. Foles got a call for being pushed on the shoulder; Tolzien got swiped across the head once with no flag. If Cooper’s TD was a catch, then Nelson’s should have been too. When your team wins, please don’t whine about calls, especially when you got as many good (at least) as bad.

    Dear cheeseheads, I agree you are a one trick pony, the epitome of the saying “its better to be lucky than good”.

    Congratulations! I hear Green Bay has a 10 story building now. Glad you guys have finally joined the 20th century.

    Typical response. “Our buildings are taller.” Only in Minnesota is it more important that your city look impressive than be impressive. All hat and no cattle…

    Speaking of buildings, is your new stadium’s roof going to cave in?

    And the GB 13 titles and Superbowls were not won by accident… And the Vikings did not lose those 4 Superbowls by accident either.

    But dont worry, tall buildings win SB’s right?

    Oh wait….

    “LOL looks at this cheeseheads trying to cover up their tears by flaming Vikings fans. Newsflash, saying the vikings suck DOESN’T MAKE YOUR TEAM SUCK LESS.”
    —————

    The irony of this is so ridic…wait, did I just say irony to a Minnesotan? The world knows that Minnesotans are not capable of irony, humor, sarcasm or personality in general. Bland, dull lifeforms…

    “Ya, ya know Sven seen a sparrow yesterday. Must mean we’re gonna get some snow.”

    “You bet.”

    “Boy, I heard Dave is goin’ on a long trip over there to Wisconsin next year. That’s two hours from Aitkin.”

    “Ya, bunch of hicks over der.”

    Contra has remnants of Minnesota in that his comebacks and jokes are just pathetic. But I’ll give him kudos. He was intelligent enough to leave hell when I had the chance.

    Wisconsin is the Armpit of the great state of Minnesota.
    It must give you a great amount of security knowing that the great state of Minnesota is here to provide the residents of that wasteland to the east with Jobs, non-obese woman, actual dental care and medical facilities with real doctors.. it must be embarrassing living in a “state” that does not have its own self sustaining economy. While I sense your great deal of pride in Wisconsin’s only profitable company which im guessing that you might actually be a “owner” of, it is pathetic that you continue to bite the hand that feeds you.. everyone knows that without the great state of Minnesota, western Wisconsin might has well be the sahara.

    More standard Minnesota fare. Let me see if I have it straight.

    There are no doctors, dentists, successful companies, businesses or attractive females in Wisconsin. These things exist only in Minnesota. Without Minnesota, Wisconsin would be the Sahara. Milwaukee, Madison, LaCrosse, Eau Claire, etc…these are not real.

    Actually, if you put yourself in the simple mind of the native Minnesotan, this makes sense. Most have never traveled further than four miles from their childhood home, so it is totally possible that they truly believe that Mpls/St Paul is indeed the entire world.

  84. toes110 says: Nov 11, 2013 8:42 PM

    mostly correct.. except for Madison, for some unknown reason still baffling the scientific community, there actually are some attractive females who reside there, im guessing they will discover that Madison is actually not part of Wisconsin, and make it its own state, within a wasteland… otherwise you hit it right on the head.. Wisconsin has had one of the worst economies in the country, for the better part of the last decade. which is why a large majority of this “residents” choose to work in the great state of Minnesota. Which is also why a “resident” who lives on the western part of that cesspole needs major medical care they come to… Thats right Minnesota…. The only positive thing about Wisconsin is beer sales on sunday and deer hunting.. oh and if you are a fan of serial killers, Wisconsin has had alot of those too…

    Well, you would be pissed to if you are known as the QB graveyard of “development”

    Flynn,Brohm, Harrel, Coleman, Young, Wallace.

    If Flynn was DEVELOPED, he would have never faultered with three teams in ONE YEAR….thanks his agent for getting the dude millions because of one good game.

    Now, he has a dead arm, and gbay signs him.

    Packers will end up in last place.

    TT and McCarthy have not developed ONE QB.

    Rodgers was a 1st rounder, and already had the goods.

    Who have they drafted QB wise, that has worked out after round 1?????

    Viking fans will never understand the game – low IQ’s.
