McCarthy 2nd place for Coach of the Year
Packers head coach Mike McCarthy lost out to New England Patriot's Bill Belichick for Coach of the Year. McCarthy received 15 of 50 votes which is amazing considering the Pats went 16-0 a feat which seemed unreachable in the salary cap era.
McCarthy lead the Pack to 13-3 and the NFC North Division Championship. Most writers picked the Pack to finish around 6-10 or 7-9, and no one thought the Packers would be the #2 seed in the NFC with a 1st round bye.
McCarthy will fill in for Belichick if he is unable to fill in his duties as Coach of the Year......(a terrible Miss America pun.)
CONGRADS to McCarthy for a great season and BEST OF LUCK to him and the PACK as they enter the PLAYOFFS!!!! GO PACK GO!!!!
