    You do realize there is more to a running game than simply getting the ball out of the back field and running with it, right?

    Jackson might not get the yards, but he mostly does enough to force teams to at least consider playing the run. He's excellent in the screen game and, more importantly, helps us out in play-action.

    No, he's not Adrian Peterson or Chris Johnson, or Michael Turner, but then again, we don't run that type of offense anyway. Jackson, Nance and Kuhn do what we need them to do, which is why it works.

    Look how that plug and play thing is going for Randy Moss. I'm laughing my *** off, eat your heart out Randy. Bet he's sorry he whined his way off the Pats.

    Agreed on trading for a RB (cause we have Grant and there was noone worth).

    Disagree on Jackson, but won't enter that again, as there's a huge thread about it.

    Anyway, this thread is about MM and firing him or not.

    Let's keep it that way shall we?

    Why fix what ISN'T broke on the team when the GM is unwilling or not smart enough to fix what IS broken. No, McCarthy needs to stay. Ted needs to be given a greyhound bus ticket out of GB.

    Why would we want to get rid of Ted Thompson?

    Favre trade, Rodgers draft, Justin Harrell draft, no back up plan for when Grant went down.

    This year's team the way I see it has succeeded DESPITE Ted not because of him.

    RealPackerBacker loves the Viking QB, and is as much a Packer backer as his heartthrob.

    Sorry, but here's my one question for you if you choose to view things THAT way:

    Wouldn't you prefer to have a QB who can win games at crunch time instead of going into the final 2 minutes of a game down 3 KNOWING that the Packers are gonna lose?

    I know I would!

    Favre trade ended up working out great. Last time I checked Rodgers is a pro bowl QB who has been one of the best in the past three years. Also are you forgetting that Ted Thompson also drafted AJ Hawk, Clay Matthews, BJ Raji, Jordy Nelson, Finley, and last time I checked they are all starters and good players. Please tell me why he is a bad GM? Just because your still angry because that diva is gone.

    If Ted hadn't of gotten rid of Brett we wouldn't have Rodgers.

    You and the Viking QB need to get over drafting Rogers. It clearly has been the best move TT has made FOR THE TEAM.

    It's The Green Bay Packers, remember.

    Yeah I know Vikings did last year, hey do you remember the last play of the NFC Championship last year, when Brett threw that pick? Or the 07 NFC Championship when Brett also threw that pic that cost the Packers a Super Bowl chance.

    Yeah real clutch.

    Exactly! Favre hasn't been clutch in big games in a long time.

    Trading Favre turned out to be a great deal for the Packers.

    My point remains keep McCarthy FIRE Thompson. Too much bad has gone on while he has been our GM and he would've been fired by MOST teams after the first 2 or 3 things. He wouldn't have even been around to make THIS YEAR's screw up

    Yeah I am positive that every team in the league would fire a guy who drafted Clay Matthews and Aaron Rodgers, and has had only one losing season as there GM. Man, talk about about horrible. pfftt

    Unfortunately, in the eyes of Favre worshippers, TT, Rodgers, and McCarthy are one and the same. It's not so much that they truly believe that they are incompetent, it's that they blame them for accepting Favre's resignation. What they don't understand is that TT & MM couldn't allow Brett to run the Pack into the ground like the Wilfs (with help from no balls Childress) because they don't own the team. Will McCarthy make mistakes? Sure he will, but I would take him ahead of any coach out there, and ahead of those talking heads that want to come back to coaching. And that's win or lose on Sunday.

    Clay, AR, Raji, Jennings, etc don't count as good picks. They fell into TTs lap.

    Well, I'm not being oportunistic here, because I'm posting before the end of the game, and I"ve stated my opinion before, but a team coming into this kind of game, and being unprepared and slow like this?

    Once again, key drops, costly fumbles and stupid penalties.

    And, of course, the D, coordinated entirely separatedly by Dom Capers, is playing on all cylinders.

    Once again, so much talent wasted...

    So we have a Driver fumble, TWO Jenning drops and a Jackson drop on 3rd down..and MM needs to be fire

    We get at least one Td if Jennings catches ONE of the two drops

    and as been posted, Rodgers has issues vs the cover 2 and its now being shown how much trouble
