The Green Bay Packers offensive issues continued during a third straight loss, 18-16 to the Detroit Lions on Sunday. Mike McCarthy not only didn’t step in to take over a more active role in the play-calling, he said after the game that Tom Clements will continue in that role in the future.
McCarthy was asked after the game if he was planning to make a change.
“I don’t think it’s that simple,” McCarthy said. “I don’t think the game of football is ever that simple. The way you play it is about the simplistic nature you go about fundamentals and so forth.”
McCarthy said looking at the time and energy that’s put into the process of preparing for each and every game in the season. He said he likes the way the staff works and the way they work with the players.
McCarthy gave up the play-calling duties after last seasons loss to Seattle in the N-F-C Championship Game, looking to get more involved with the team’s defense and special teams as well.
