The Electric Commentary

If you are a Packer fan, this is a disaster.

Jim Bates was one of the most important people in the organization, and there is little chance that they will be able to hire anyone who is even remotely in the same ballpark.

I'm liking the new guy less and less.


  • It certainly sucks, but it is hard to blame the new coach as I suspect this was largely Bates realizing that his disappointment in not getting the head coaching job would affect his desire and get in the way of him coordinating here.
    On the bright side, there are some former D-coordinators who were so good they were promoted to head coach, then fired, who are available. So we may not be screwed, although I'm pretty worried.

  • We weren't surprised to see Mr. Bates leave--disappointed, but not surprised. Who wants to sit around in second place while you watch first place?

    I am willing to give Mr. McCarthy a three year tryout in addition to playoff victories until I give him the thumbs up or down.
