    Very well deserved firing.

    Clueless Joe Philbin will run a good tank for the Pack down the stretch. :sarcasm:

    Pretty shocked that they did it now instead of waiting for the end of the season.

    You don’t be the guy to lose to the cardinals on your home field for the first time since 1949

    Thought they would do it at the end of the season but I'll take it. Wouldn't make sense keeping him around d when you know he was going to get fired anyway.

    No real reason to fire him now with only 4 games left

    He did win SB for your team and IMO this should have waited till season was over

    After the Cardinals beat the Pack in Lambeau? Seems a tad extreme, but I root for the Redbirds. I know suffering ALL TOO WELL!

    Huge Packer backer. Grew up there. Not surprised he was fired. A little surprised he was fired midseason - that's not the Packers' way. That being said, if Philbin gets the permanent job, it'll be the first time I email an organization to relay my disgust lol

    Not a Packers fan at all, but good god it feels good to hear he's been fired. No ill will towards the man but goddamn he overstayed his welcome.

    Should have been sacked after they blew the playoff game to Seattle.

    Don't think of it as being fired four games too soon, think of it as being fired 12 games too late.

    This idiot should’ve been fired half a decade ago.

    Who would be good, imaginative offensive coaches that could come in and run a team that is taking advantage of Rodgers talents?

    I'm so happy MM is gone. Hes stale.

    This is James Franklin, Mean Gene? I’m not big on college football. This is an extremely interesting coaching vacancy to me though, with some of the offensive pieces Green Bay has, and 12 running it. Pettine I think has been good for them on D, Jaire Alexander is a massive stud, and if they do what the Rams did with a fisher to mcvey like update, look out.

    What is he like as a coach? Is this a good thing for them if they do or is this just a familiar face taking over if they hypothetically did?

    He's a CEO type coach but his background is offense. I don't expect him to be hired but when NFL teams do look at NCAA coaches it's either guys that run a pro style program (Brian Kelly) or have previous NFL coaching experience.
