The Packers’ loss to the Vikings on Sunday night dealt a huge blow to their playoff hopes , and if they miss the playoffs they’re likely to fire head coach Mike McCarthy. After the game, McCarthy sounded like he’s beginning to accept the inevitable.McCarthy was asked about his own performance and acknowledged it needs to improve.“I understand why you’re asking the questions. That’s part of the deal. We’re about winning football games. We didn’t do enough. I didn’t do enough. I need to coach better,” McCarthy said.Fourth downs continue to be an area where McCarthy needs to coach better. He remains too quick to punt when he ought to trust Aaron Rodgers to pick up a first down, and when he does go for it on fourth down, his playcalling is laughably predictable, as the run that went nowhere on fourth-and-inches on Sunday night showed.That sequence was particularly bad: The Packers were stopped just short on third down. Instead of quickly getting a fourth-down play called, the Packers dawdled and ended up wasting a timeout. At that point Montravius Adams Jersey White , if McCarthy was going to waste a timeout anyway, he should have challenged the spot of the third down, which was close enough that it was worth another look. And then, even with extra time to call the play after the timeout, his run up the middle was the obvious call, which the Vikings’ defense saw coming and stopped easily.McCarthy does need to coach better. But at this point, it may be too late to save his job. Offseason programs are getting started in the NFL today Bryan Bulaga Jersey , and the Packers are giving their players millions of reasons to attend voluntary workouts.The two biggest workout bonuses in any NFL contracts this year are the $750,000 bonus in Packers linebacker Za'Darius Smith‘s new contract and the $650,000 bonus in Packers linebacker Preston Smith‘s new contract, according to Field Yates of ESPN.By putting such big workout bonuses in player contracts, Packers General Manager Brian Gutekunst is following in the footsteps of his predecessor, Ted Thompson, who regularly put big workout bonuses in players’ contracts.It makes sense for the Packers in particular because Green Bay Kyle Murphy Jersey White , Wisconsin, isn’t exactly America’s hottest spring break destination. It’s probably easier for a team like the Miami Dolphins or Los Angeles Rams to convince players to come to town for voluntary workouts in April than it is for a team located in Green Bay.NFL players get a standard pay of $175 a day for participating in offseason workouts. For minimum-salary players, that’s a nice enticement — not to mention that a lot of those minimum-salary players are desperate to take every opportunity they can to impress their teams, as there’s no guarantee they’ll make the roster in the regular season.But for highly paid veterans who don’t really need the money and know they’re going to make the team, a workout bonus is an inducement to show up even for work that is voluntary.
