For me personally I think coach McCarthy is doing a fine job. His team was in the game till the end the last two weeks and if not for mistakes made by players may have won both of those games. It appeared to me that he had his team ready to go against two of the top teams in the league and that turnovers cost them the game both times. I don't know of a football coach alive who coached his team to turn the ball over, so I really don't fault McCarthy for those plays. It appears to me that his game plans were definitely good enough to have won both of those games, barring the turnovers. Even with the offense not living up to the standards that McCarthys offenses have set in the past.
If you fire McCarthy, I do not have a clue who would be a good hire. Look at the coordinators running the top offenses and the top defenses and interview those guys would be a good place to start. Though you will probably come back at me with Norv Turner from that description. I think I would overlook the guys like him who have had chances like Norv Turner and Rod Marinelli,and Gus Bradley and the like. Find a young Mike Holmgren. A teacher type.
I think this get rid of McCarthy if it happens could turn out to be one of those you don't know what you've got, till it's gone scenarios
