An Open Letter to Mike McCarthy

Is this man your coaching inspiration, Mike?

Dear Mike McCarthy:

Why, in the name of all that is holy, would you call a slant pass on first-and-goal from the one yard line?

Why? You only needed seven points to tie the game. You've got a good halfback. Buffalo has a shitty run defense.

Why the slant pattern?

Is it already too chilly in Green Bay for you, and you want to make sure you won't have to worry about being there next year? If so, good plan. However, if you were actually trying to, you know, win the game, that was a stupid fucking call. I'm sure you'll be hearing this sort of sentiment a lot this coming week.

You should.


Cordially yours,
