It wasn’t a surprise that things weren’t going well in Green Bay last year Bart Starr Jersey White , and a change might be coming.But Packers coach Mike McCarthy said he was stunned by the way it happened.Asked by Rob Demovsky of ESPN.com if he had any indication that team president Mark Murphy was going to fire him, McCarthy said he didn’t.“Frankly, no I did not,” McCarthy said. “As a head coach, I’ve always tried to stay immune to and stand in front of all the outside noise. That was always my focus with my players. It was always to protect them as much as possible from the drama. I think that’s important. And I stayed true to that to the last day. If we missed the playoffs, I expected change might happen.“But the timing surprised me. Actually it stunned me. But time provides the opportunity for reflection and clarity and that’s where I’m at now. And it’s clear to me now that both sides needed a change.”McCarthy said that in the wake of his firing, his wife told him she was relieved, because of the toll the job had taken on him in recent years. She pointed out that it was clear he wasn’t happy Corey Linsley Jersey , and that the job “beat the hell out of you the last couple of years.”Still, he thought he deserved a better ending.“Obviously. It couldn’t have been handled any worse,” McCarthy said. “Anytime you lose a close game, it’s a difficult time emotionally afterwards, but when you lose a home game at Lambeau Field in December, it’s really hard. And that hasn’t happened very often. I walked out of my press conference, and I’m thinking about the game, thinking about how our playoff shot was now minimal. That’s where my head was at. And when I was told Mark Murphy wanted to see me — and the messenger was cold and the energy was bad. Mark said it was an ugly loss Kenny Clark Jersey White , and it was time to make change. He said something about the offense and the special teams, and he didn’t think it was going to get any better. There was no emotion to it. That was hard.“Every time I released an individual, you get your words right. There’s a personal component to it. You know he has a family. He’s family. There wasn’t any of that. So that was off. The way people leave that building was very important to me. That’s a part of the business. Hopefully moving forward for guys like Clay [Matthews] and Randall [Cobb] and Nick Perry and Jordy Nelson and T.J. Lang, it’s important for them to leave the right way. That way represents the Green Bay Packers standard that I tried to uphold every day.“That exit, frankly, Rob, the exit really stuck with me for a while. It was hard to swallow. The emotional challenge of shifting from humiliation to reflection was a very important step in seeking clarity so I could personally grow from the experience of my entire Green Bay Packer career; that’s what I wanted to get to, not just the ending of it.”McCarthy sounds like he’s in a better place now Womens JK Scott Jersey , but clearly needed some time to work through his 13-year run which ended a few weeks short. The Packers, who meet with Ole Miss offensive tackle Greg Little Monday, will also visit fellow O-line prospect Kaleb McGary on Tuesday."WhiteFanposts Fanshots Sections The APC PodcastPackers Film RoomFantasy Football AdviceCDTShareTweetShareSharePackers to host Kaleb McGary for pre-draft visit, per reportThe Green Bay Packers have multiple pre-draft visits planned this week with offensive linemen. In addition to meeting with Ole Miss’ Greg Little Monday, NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport reports that the team has a visit scheduled with Washington’s Kaleb McGary on Tuesday.A 6-foot-7, 317-pound offensive tackle, McGary has started 42 games during his Washington career, all at right tackle. He earned All-Pac-12 honors each of the past two seasons as well as the 2018 Morris Trophy David Bakhtiari Jersey , an award for the conference’s best offensive lineman. A strong showing at the NFL Scouting Combine -- 5.05 second 40-yard dash, 33.5-inch vertical leap, 111-inch broad jump, and 4.58 second short shuttle -- further inflated McGary’s draft stock.McGary’s athleticism and experience could make him a viable candidate to eventually succeed Bryan Bulaga, the Packers’ longtime starting right tackle scheduled to hit free agency next offseason. Getting a player like McGary in Green Bay in 2019 would ease the transition process as well as provide depth along the offensive line during the upcoming season.The Packers currently hold four picks in the opening three rounds of the draft, including three selections within the top 45. Though McGary’s exact range remains somewhat unclear, the team should have multiple chances to take the offensive lineman should they so choose.
