    I heard this morning on Colin Cowherd that after Favre threw five INT'S during practice, McCarthy was very vocal about his performance, saying "I will not tolerate this". Even Ron Jaworski said this is the type of coach Favre needs in order to excel, unlike Sherman, who wouldn"t say nothing about Favre.

    Coaching someone doesn't mean he's upsetting Favre.

    I don't think the quote is accurate. I've read quite a bit about this situation, but its all been questioned if McCarthy should have called Brett out the way he did so who knows.

    btw those who said he shouldn't be called out were Sherman fans those who opposed it said the failure to coach Brett is reason why he made such bad decisions during the previous years.

    Found an article that would support the initial quote.

    Cowherd, sorry to say, has a bit of an anti-mancrush with Favre. This isn't the first time he's seemed to enjoy seeing Favre getting some come-uppance.

    However, given what is all over the national media about Favre's Very Bad Day, I think it is an encouraging sign that McCarthy is willing to Talk the Talk.

    If Favre needs anything to make his last year successful, its going to be coaching and accountability.

    Ray Rhodes, however, was really good at Talking the Talk, huffing and roaring, but he still spent most of his time playing dominoes with the players in the locker room.

    I'm glad McCarthy is willing to Talk the Talk. Let's see if he can Walk the Walk.

    packula (kick *** name) agreed, colin cowherd is a douchebag, and his show sucks... theres a difference in saying controversial statements, and down right makin stuff up. the guy is a shock jock dickwad, and if people would stop gettin all riled up about the stupid crap he says, he would go away for good.

    however... this time apparently it really happened, and its a good thing for favre to have some coaching.

    At the same time though, it was bretts first or second time on the feild this year playing against top talent... so i mean big freakin deal. he could of thrown picks on purpose for all we know. its a stupid reason for people to get all crazy. sorry.

    Cowherd's usually good, but I tune him out when he gets on his anti-Favre rants. During the NBA playoffs, he liked to go on anti-Shaq rants, but then Shaq helped his team win the championship. Oops!

    I thought it was great that McCarthy called out Favre a little bit. Criticizing Favre in public was almost taboo for Sherman and his staff, and I think it was one of Sherman's downfalls.

    Did you know when Bates first came here he was yelling at a player and Sherman pulled him back and said 'we dont do that here' and said only he administrates discpline of that nature. Anothre tally on the Sherman failure list. You gotta let your coaches .... COACH! lol

    I agree, Favre needs that. Holmgrem would be very vocal about Favre. Sherman wasn't and seemed to of treated him differently. McCarthy treats him as anyone else. I like that in in McCarthy.

    Cowherd definitely has issues with Favre . And His remarks about what McCarthy said are tabloid esque. Trying to make it look like there are issues between coach & QB . Like last year when they made a big deal on Favre's comments about Walkers hold out. Sometimes it seems like I'm listening to Jerry Springer rather than ESPN. They need to stick to reporting about sports and not looking for a gossip column.

    Favre like every other player in the league needs a coach to actually coach him. Something he hasn't had since Holmy.

    Let's not get all excited about MM "talking" to Favre about 5 INTs. None of it counts a bit unless he has the guts to PULL Favre when he screws up during a game that counts. If he won't do that, he has no more credibility than MS did in his 5 yrs.

    RAVE: Compared to last year, there seems to be less cramping, despite the heat, which suggests strength coach Rock Gullickson and his staff did an excellent job in the offseason, and trainer Pepper Burruss and his staff are doing likewise in training camp. The Packers seem like a better conditioned team than a year ago.

    You can see where MM is doing a better job then MS did as far as conditioning the players.

    Someone needs to put Favre in his place. I don't care who it is, but it needs to be done. All these crazy Favre lovers need to peel their lips off Brett's rear and make him accountable for the COUNTLESS bad decisions he makes.

    Come on McCarthy....Give him a good tongue lashing!

    As had been said before by me and others...Mike McCarthy was hired BECAUSE of his ability to work with QB's, and because he won't back down from telling Favre what has to be done.

    Sherman was a good coach, fair to poor General Manager, but he had no ability to stop Favre from become "Bad Brett". McCarthy has the potential to re-maximize "Good Brett", and this is how it's being done.

    Sherman and staff were too in awe of the future HOFer to do anything. I have said for years that Favre regressed under that "leadership", and I stand behind that statement.

    Sorry to say, but I agree that Brett just like any other teammate should be accountable for their actions, it only makes for a better team.

    Brett is the BEST QB to ever play the game of football IMO, and if he makes mistakes he should get called out on them, coaches just doing their job.

    I am NOT a Brett Favre basher, NEVER will be, he is the MAN!!!!

    I don't agree with this...that Packer team underachieved under Rhodes during his season as HC and they were some of the most undisciplined group of thugs during the recent packer era in my opinion.

    It was painful to watch all the cheap shots and trash talking to go along with all the stupid false starts, offsides, facemasks, etc. I'd be curious to see where the Packers ranked as far as penalties during this season. I know it was a far cry from what Holmgren demanded of basically the same players.

    I had the good fortune of being able to attend 3 days of training camp that year.
    I observed Rhodes being TOTALLY disinterested in what was going on during the days I was there. He never got involved, hell he barely even looked at the field where the drills were taking place.
    I never, over the course of those 3 days saw Rhodes speak to even 1 player.
    I left Green Bay with a very bad feeling about Rhodes.
    As it turned out my feelings were on the money.

    My concern, though.

    I am certainly hopeful that McCarthy is ging t be holding Favre accountable.

    However, did anyone else catch the blurb yesterday about McCarthy not being all that excited about Donald Driver back fielding kicks?

    Link

    I realize that McCarthy is very "hands-off" with his assistants, letting them do the work. After having a coach perceived as a micromanager, I'm sure this is desirable.

    However, does this mean that players are being put in situations he doesn't want them in, to the point he's questioning it to the media afterwards?

    The thread is about Favre, and someone having the kahunas to "stand up to him". I hope McCarthy has the kahunas to know what's going on with everyone else, though, too.

    I love Brett, but if you're not winning games for the Green Bay Packers....then I will bash away.
