Browns’ Damarious Randall calls out Packers for Mike McCarthy firing
Cleveland Browns free safety Damarious Randall is not happy with his former team, the Green Bay Packers for their decision to fire coach Mike McCarthy. Randall was traded over from the Packers this offseason and that is something he thinks was the teams biggest mistake, trading away some of their good players.
“I don’t know,’’ the former Green Bay defensive back said when asked if the game has passed McCarthy by via Mary Kay Cabot of cleveland.com. “They traded away all their good players and they expect Aaron Rodgers to just be magical. The magic hasn’t been so magical lately. But other than that, I don’t know.’’
Randall was benched by McCarthy after arguing with a coach last year and there were some questions about if he was really sitting out the last two games because of a knee injury, or if it was a coaches decision. Even with those troubles, Randall says he has nothing but respect for his former coach.
“Mike McCarthy is a great, great coach,’’ said Randall. “I’ve got nothing but the utmost respect for him. I just wish him the best. I don’t know why they fired him. He’s definitely a good, good guy, and he’s a great coach.’’
Randall might have a point but with the clear struggles between Rodgers and McCarthy a change had to be made and maybe a new coaching in can get this team back to the playoffs, and a run for the Super Bowl before Rodgers is out of his prime years and they are wasted.
