    At that point in the game, there is no reason to risk field position on that field goal. Not only has Crosby been struggling, he's a coin flip from 50+ in his career.

    I didn't pick against the Packers. I just aired my frustration about that particular situation.

    Most kickers are a coin flip beyond 50.

    I said it before, winning covers a lot of his deficiencies.

    In my opinion, he's not a great coach. Call it an overstatement if you want, but that's the way I feel.

    So add that to the fact he's been struggling all year and the field goal decision is not a good one.

    Add to the fact that he's steadily working his way out of his slump and it was early in the game and it was good call... a call most any coach would make.

    It's good to be in touch with your feelings. Good for you. But the facts out-weigh your feelings. He wins games and he's not going anywhere. Get over it.

    HyponGrey Its just a "prediction". Many threads on this board elliciting these throughout the season. I've picked the Packers to win FAR more than to lose.
    longtimefan I don't typically see the ones critiquing the criticism in the chat box in there from beginning to end. Or at least don't see active comments from beginning to end of game. Maybe that is why some stay away, so they can yell at their TV instead of in the chat room. Hindsight is 20/20. The Packers deserved to be criticized for certain play and playcalling. Many fans are either life long or stock owners and have a HUGE emotional investment in the game and thus need to verbalize their frustrations.

    Gladly there isn't a fan card which states no criticism allowed or some fans would be kicked off the train it seems.

    Fine. In your opinion the kick attempt was the right thing to do. In mine, it wasn't. I prefer the field position.

    I never said "fire McCarthy" so that's great news that "he's not going anywhere". Thanks for being awesome!

    Apparently in this forum you can't criticize anybody. Everybody should just log on, say nice things about everybody and end all of their sentences with a smiley face :)

    :barefoot::barefoot:.....:sneaky:.....:cautious:

    My sister when she posts to online message boards did just what you mentioned. Ends each of her posts with smilies. It gets kind of annoying.:) Kind of lost the meaning after awhile.

    You called him a "bad" coach in this thread and a "terrible" coach in another. It is assumed that most people who consider their coach to be "bad" or "terrible" do not want them to continue to be employed in that position.

    So...you think McCarthy is a bad, terrible coach, but you don't think he should be replaced. :confused: Rock on.

    He could stay and just stop calling fullback handoffs on 2nd-and-long and having Crosby kick 50+ yarders... #seemseasy #rockonAdam :eek:

    I think it's pretty silly logic to say a coach is terrible but then say you never wanted him fired, but that's just me. As far as the decisions themselves, every coach in the NFL has fans who hate their decisions at times. Every one. You're entitled to your opinion though, will just have to agree to disagree.

    And IMO, if you're not willing to give your kicker a shot at 3 points from 50 yards most of the time the opportunity presents itself, they probably don't belong on your roster.

    I see. So he should get all game day decisions approved by you first. I'll be sure to pass along the memo.

    So you dont see the chat and assume something?


    I can bitch about Rodgers not throwing the ball and getting sacked...Talk about why run on 3rd and 10...Ect.....

    These quotes are what get me

    Score is 7-0 Rodgers fumbles and Lions are about to score


    So I dont jump off a bridge like some here when the other team scores and say lets give it a few series before saying they lost or things like that and I am told I am licking Teds ***?

    So I avoid it as much as I can because of those childish comments...I dont need that

    By your own admissions he is horrible and terrible, but you do not want him fired..Ok...But by terrible you mean 2nd and long handoffs or 50 yard fg att...

    The next logical answer is if he didnt do those, he wouldnt be terrible..Since it pisses you off, he must be still doing those so it makes him terrible..

    How can he stop doing those stupid plays????? Since it appears he wont...

    HE SHOULD get your permission as what to run, then he wouldnt be terrible
