Green Bay Packers News: Mike McCarthy on the hot seat?

Is Mike McCarthy on the hot seat after Green Bay’s recent struggles and Aaron Rodgers’ criticism of the team’s lack of energy?

Good morning and welcome to the “Titletown Report” for Wednesday. Preparations are being made for the Tennessee Titans, who Green Bay meets in a must-win this Sunday. At 4-4, this is the Packers’ worst record at the halfway stage since 2009.

The Titans are 4-5 and a much better team than many will give them credit for. The running back tandem of DeMarco Murray and Derrick Henry is among the best in the league, and the Packers will need to slow this combination down in order to give the offense a chance. That’s before we factor in the versatility of quarterback Marcus Mariota.

As you sip your coffee this fine Wednesday morning, enjoy these Packers articles from around the internet.
