Possibly The Worst

Possibly The Worst

Bob McGinn is reporting that the BOD of the Packers told Murphy to remove TT. This recalls the bad old days before Bob Harlan when the BOD was directly active in management and screwed things up big time. I read this in Pro Football Talk and don't subscribe to McGinns website. PFT suggests that the issue is his ability to focus. That would seem to imply some sort of mental defect. There is also speculation the new GM will want a new coach.

Maybe early stages of some sort of dementia?

I've had concerns about this for him personally for the last year. I'm definitely not a Dr. but he has recently exhibited some of the personality traits one might associate with such. I remember I first considered this watching TT being interviewed at the league meetings in Phoenix last March. Open mouth listening to questions when typically most are tight lipped when waiting to respond. Then a little bit of slurring in his speech when he would speak. He's never been particularly glib but even for him it seemed a little different. Hopefully not the case and simply my imagination.

McCarthy was signed to a one year extension which would allow him to coach, sans lame duck, for 2018. I suspect that's a nod to the new GM that they're covered for their first year and can then decide if they want to keep MM or find their own coach.

I think that also bodes well for a GM selection outside of the current organization since, I suspect, any of the current internal candidates like McCarthy and would keep him. Who knows.

Anything from Cornholio Florio has to be taken with a large grain of salt. And McGinn seems eager for attention and subscriptions these days....

Also, when interviewed Murphy specifically denied that that ever happened.
He even laughed and said that would never happen on a 45 man board. Mostly they just get together to report on various facets of the Packers business.

Agreed. He does not seem to be shall we say, unbiased.!
