Mike McCarthy takes responsibility for loss to Giants

Mark L. Baer-US PRESSWIRE

After the Giants game, McCarthy preached accountability and admitted that he didn't do a good job on Sunday night.

There weren't too many members of the Green Bay Packers playing or coaching staff that did their job against the Giants on Sunday night. As the head coach and play-caller, Mike McCarthy is always going to stand out after losses, and I wrote yesterday about how I disagreed with his play-calling style during the game.

McCarthy stepped up and admitted that he didn't do his job well during the game, which is good to see.

I haven't felt like this since the first game I coached as a Green Bay Packer head coach. So, beaten very thoroughly tonight. Doesn't taste good, doesn't feel good. Most important things I stress are responsibility and accountability ... Once again, my focus is on responsibility and accountability, to make sure we go out and perform the way we're supposed to. We have too many good people, too many talented people, too much in our locker room to perform like that. I did a poor job tonight.

This is exactly what you want to hear from a head coach after a bad loss. The Packers are still in control of their own playoff destiny, and there's no reason that one bad game should derail their season. Hopefully McCarthy was able to correct most of his and the team's mistakes yesterday and today, and the team can start preparing to face the Vikings knowing exactly what went wrong and how to fix it.
