The Green Bay Packers found a way to lose yet another game in which they had a late lead. On Thursday night against the Seattle Seahawks, Green Bay led 24-20 with just over five minutes left in the fourth quarter.
A touchdown pass from Russell Wilson to Ed Dickson and a mismanaged drive from the Packers led to a 27-24 Seattle win. After the loss, Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers was visibly upset at the podium when speaking to reporters - especially after one question.
The Packers fell to 0-5 on the road this season and questions about Mike McCarthy's job security grew louder.
NFL insider Mike Silver penned a column for NFL.com in which he said there's a "growing sense" that McCarthy will be replaced.
With Packers president and CEO Mark Murphy having taken a more hands-on role since the front-office switch, there's a growing sense that McCarthy may be replaced -- barring a dramatic turnaround in the team's fortunes. If so, he'll surely look back at Thursday's game as one of those that got away.
Green Bay sits at 4-5-1 on the season and is in serious danger of missing the playoffs yet again. Another missed opportunity with Rodgers as his quarterback might spell the end for McCarthy.
