Extend Mike McCarthy?

Question: Why did the "fire" MM thread get closed but the "extend" MM thread remains open? Only one of those threads is laughable. (Hint: the one I'm posting in right now). 

I wouldn't laugh. If the Packers have a successful season, MM's going to get an extension. He's only got one year on his deal now.

Only way he's extended is with a deep run in the playoffs. Like playing in the championship game. If that happens I'll support an extension, but as of now I'm completely on board with a hard reset.

So it looks like every rational poster here agrees we should extend him. 

But for how long? I'd say at least a other 5 years through Rodgers' deal.

I think you tie it to Rodgers' contract

Putting on my rational hat, I really don't think it's a great idea to extend him.  Especially not now.  Yes, he's the best option available, and no I don't want to fire him, but it really isn't a good idea to extend him.  Especially now.  That chip works for Rodgers, and it'll work for McCarthy, too.  You make him earn his extension in the playoffs.

Have no idea what will happen or what should happen, but extending him only one year speaks volumes to me. Certainly seems like an audition which is odd after 10+ years

Is this another superstition or humor thread?

It's a lot like hindsight. It's 50/50

50 percent ironic

50 percent just a place to talk about the coaching situation.

McCarthy, "excellent win for our football team tonight!" 

It was an ugly win, not an EXCELLENT win! That is why he's a loser! 

"Our team made a huge step tonight!" McCarthy

Mike, is that a huge step forward or backward? Inquiring minds.............

You make it sound like winning in this league is easy.  Frankly, there isn't a lot separating the best teams and the worst.   McCarthy is right - they came back and found a way to win when things weren't going well after that disaster in Detroit = a huge step.  Sheesh...

Oh ok, I've been convinced.  Can we hire Gruden away from the Raiders to manage our personnel?

Yes!  Let's pay that clown $100 M and be just like the Raiders.  Yippeeeeee!   lol

You're actually the first and only person up to this post who actually thinks we should extend him. You must be the only rational poster.

You don't actually believe or want this. You have to let Rodgers play with a new coach before he's done. This is madness.

Mac was content going into OT. What a sackless soul. 

This is a really poor way to look at things. He did what 99% of coaches would do deep in their own end in a tie game. Why risk a stupid emotional play. Plus the D was playing pass. See if we can't bust off a decent run, or a short pass to start the drive. The driver started on what our 8 yard line. Lemme guess you advocate run all night and then once we're deep in our zone with less than a minute left you want the deep passing attack. MM played that right, and it worked out so why grade that as a negative.
