Nothing good comes from Packers' bad loss to Cardinals

As a result, I made the hard decision to relieve Mike McCarthy of his role as head coach, effective immediately.

A block from Lambeau Field is "Mike McCarthy Way", which runs parallel with "Lombardi Avenue" and intersects with "Holmgren Way" in Green Bay.

Aaron Rodgers and the Packers are trying to keep fading playoff hopes alive on a snowy Sunday, Dec. 2 in Green Bay against Arizona and rookie quarterback Josh Rosen.

After almost 13 seasons with the team, the Packers have parted ways with Mike McCarthy.

Arizona is now 3-9 on the season while Green Bay fell to 4-7-1 and by all metrics have fallen out of playoff contention.

"The 2018 season has not lived up to the expectations and standards of the Green Bay Packers".

McCarthy has been on thin ice with the franchise for quite some time, as the team has only reached the NFC Championship game once since the Super Bowl win in 2010.

Before the McCarthy news broke, he said in his postgame press conference that he wasn't sure what might happen down the stretch.

The question on many Packers fans' minds following the 20-17 home loss to the Arizona Cardinals had to be about whether McCarthy might make it to Monday. It's not like we're getting blown out in a bunch of games. However, given the Packers' lack of success and the lofty line, it's the Cardinals who are actually getting 51% of bets and almost 65% of dollars (check out the updated betting data here).

Poor weather - a mix of snow and rain throughout - also contributed to both the Cardinals and Packers struggling offensively at times, but this should have been an advantage for Green Bay.

"This was a game that we have won in the past, expected to win", said Rodgers, who threw for 233 yards on 31 completions. Green Bay has talented weapons on offense, a solid offensive line, and an equally talented defense.

This year, Rodgers hurt his left knee in the season opener, though he is feeling better now.

Rodgers set a franchise record for most consecutive pass attempts without an interception, breaking Bart Starr's franchise record of 294.
