  2. McCarthy had little to do with Favre. In fact, no one in Wisconsin is really sure GM Ted Thompson wants him back next season. He hasn’t been publicaly begging him to not retire.

  3. In regards to Favre, a Milwaukee TV station had audio of Favre’s brother criticizing the Packers for not keeping Brett in the loop and for not telling him that they plan to make the effort to win next year. I suspect you are right-more losing on the horizon.

  4. My guess: Thompson is hedging his bets that Favre won’t be back. McCarthy has been responsible for the development of Hasselbeck (G.B.), Brooks (N.O.) and Smith (S.F.). He’ll be responsible for developing Aaron Rodgers into a starting QB. A point in McCarthy’s favor - Brooks’ play has been erratic for years, but it really went downhill this past season. Why? McCarthy went to S.F. Smith in S.F. improved over the course of the season. Why? McCarthy went to S.F.

    Thompson has committed to rebuilding after looking at the draft and free-agent travesties of Sherman. McCarthy is just the first step. So yes, the Pack will keep losing next year and possibly the year after that. That’s what Thopmson is going to bring. After that, we’ll see. Thompson (and all of us in Cheeseland) hope resurgence begins at that point. If not, the patience of Bob Harlan and the Cheesy Faithful will wear thin.

    I only hope Bates stays on.
