    They say hes a good QB specialist type. That is the kind of guy you hire when you have a YOUNG qb, not a proven hall of famer. Although they worked together in 99, this isnt a favorable hiring for those who want a guy to be hired that helps brett come back.

    oh come on it sounds like you guys are trying to appease an angry god

    This guy does have an established resume working with the offensive side of the ball, as well as a pretty good list of QB's...but in terms of being a head coach...nothing really to speak of--if this were the guy replacing Rossley I'd be much happier...personally my hopes were elevated when the Bates speculation rose

    When choosing a coach, Packers had Favre's future in mind
    BY MICHAEL HUNT
    Milwaukee Journal Sentinel

    MILWAUKEE - Ted Thompson has consistently said that he wanted Brett Favre back, but there was always the suspicion that the Green Bay general manager was merely saying the politically expedient thing. Did he really want Favre to return, or was he actually eager to blow this whole thing up and start over, much as Ron Wolf once did, with his own coach and quarterback?

    With the hiring of Mike McCarthy, the answer is reasonably clear. The Packers apparently do want No. 4 to stay for as long as he is productive.

    You don't bring in one of the many branches of Bill Walsh's West Coast offense family tree and Favre's former position coach without having Favre's future in mind. McCarthy and Favre are also close in the way that Favre bonded with his favorite mentors over the years, but there obviously has to be more to McCarthy for Thompson to have staked his vague reputation on this hire.

    Far more important in the larger scheme will be McCarthy's influence on Aaron Rodgers. One of McCarthy's selling points was his vast experience with a wide range of successful quarterbacks. The Packers' uncertain future is so heavily invested in Rodgers that it only made sense for Thompson to select a coach whose expertise is based on the development of quarterbacks.

    Yet if Favre does return, it will be incumbent upon McCarthy to rein in the quarterback who had grown increasingly reckless in the years since Mike Holmgren's departure.

    It could have been much worse. Had the Minnesota Vikings not acted so rashly and snapped up Brad Childress for reasons that still aren't altogether clear, he might have been the Green Bay coach and Darrell Bevell would've been his offensive coordinator. The Packers needed a clean break with that kind of past because no one on Mike Sherman's staff could control Favre anymore.

    McCarthy could just be the guy to do it. He helped create Aaron Brooks during the boom years of the New Orleans' offense, yet McCarthy did not passively give in when Brooks resisted continuing guidance after the quarterback became a star. In fact, he stood up to Brooks when no one else in the Saints' organization would.

    Brooks was no Brett Favre, but it is fair to say that Favre could've been held far more accountable by the Green Bay staff this past season. The fact that McCarthy once worked with Joe Montana during the latter days of Montana's career should also be encouraging to those who value Favre's continued association with the Packers.

    While McCarthy may facilitate Favre's return, this is much bigger than the year or so Favre may or may not have left with the Green Bay Packers. At 42, McCarthy is about to become a head coach for the first time in a place where unparalleled tradition has crushed far more men than it has honored. The enormous pressure is intensified by the fact that Jim Bates was the people's choice, but the quarterback situation says Thompson made the proper call.

    So who is Mike McCarthy? He is said to be a no-nonsense, even-temperament kind of guy, which only makes sense given the personality of the man who made the hire. It all looks very good on paper, but so have other notable miscalculations.

    Talk about scrutiny. The $6.4 million gamble Thompson has made on a comparative unknown demands that McCarthy must be clearly superior to Sherman in a relatively short time. Welcome to Titletown, coach.

    This could be very good for Brett and the Packers. As I believe Brett needs someone who is willing to get in his face and really coach him, get rid of those int's. With Javon, Murphy, Bubba,Green, Gado, and Davenport coming back we have a great opportunity to have a very good offense. But I think Brett needs to make a 2 or 3 year committment and TT needs to build around that to win a SB. The influx of new players with Rodgers on the bench can also build for the future. It won't be easy but with schwed moves it can be done.
