Baker Mayfield laughs at radio show that suggests he's the reason Browns can't hire big-name coach

Cleveland Browns quarterback Baker Mayfield isn't going to let bad opinions slide. The 23-year-old Mayfield continued his crusade against bad takes Wednesday, laughing off a radio show that suggested he was the reason successful coaches didn't want to join the Browns. The clip, which lasts about five minutes, roughly boils down to this: Baker Mayfield might criticize you on social media or treat you with contempt — like he did with Hue Jackson — and that's why established names li...

Mike McCarthy looks to be permanently on hold in Cleveland

There had been a presumption that, with former Packers coach Mike McCarthy available, with the Browns looking for a coach, and with plenty of former Packers front-office executives populating the front office in Cleveland, McCarthy would be a viable candidate to become the next coach there. It was believed at the time that G.M. John Dorsey knows who he wants to hire, that he was keeping his preferences to himself, and that his choice for the job wasn't McCarthy. Which could be regarded as a...

Report: Mike McCarthy “on hold” with Browns

Now it appears that McCarthy's interview may not happen at all.

Marcedes Lewis detailed tension between Aaron Rodgers, Mike McCarthy in Green Bay this season

As Mike McCarthy's time in Green Bay came to a close this season, rumors grew of increased tension between the former head coach and Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers. The once seemingly perfect duo — who reached the playoffs eight times together and won a Super Bowl — reportedly started butting heads this season as the Packers struggled. Rodgers even apparently started calling his own plays on the field, completely ignoring McCarthy's play calls at times.

Pat Fitzgerald on NFL opportunities: “I’m not going anywhere”

Considering Green Bay Packers CEO Mark Murphy once hired Pat Fitzgerald to serve as head coach at Northwestern University when he was the athletic director at the school, it was reasonable to wonder if a reunion between the two could occur with the Packers as they search for a replacement for Mike McCarthy. However, Fitzgerald seems to have put that possibly to bed following his team’s Holiday Bowl victory over Utah on Monday night. Hashtag Go Cats, man.

Will Packers make a run at Pat Fitzgerald?

The head start that the Packers secured by firing coach Mike McCarthy with four weeks left in the regular season allowed Green Bay to court, and to interview, candidates not currently tied to other NFL teams. The name most prominently connected to the Packers’ vacancy is Pat Fitzgerald, and for good reason. Employed as the head coach at Northwestern since 2006, Fitzgerald secured the job on the watch of former Northwestern A.D. Mark Murphy.

Behind the Green and Gold Curtain: An Insider’s View of Mike McCarthy and the Packers

As I know so well from my near-decade of living Green Bay and working for the Packers, change is rare there, and when it does happen, it moves at a glacial pace. Not only are the Packers’ headquarters on Lombardi Avenue, but it often felt like as if team and the entire community were still living in an era when Vince Lombardi roamed the Packers sideline, a simpler time with the innocence of a bygone era. Against that backdrop, the Packers’ firing of Mike McCarthy last week with four games rema...

Kartje: Aaron Donald makes a case, but no defense allowed in NFL MVP race

LOS ANGELES – Since 1957, when the Associated Press first began awarding a Most Valuable Player, the interpretation of what’s “most valuable” in the NFL has skewed unwaveringly toward players who consistently touch the ball. It’s an understandable shortcoming in an age when quarterbacks shatter records on the regular. But even before two high-powered offenses could combine for more than 100 points and 1,000 yards in a single Monday night, we struggled to quantify the value of defenders in relati...
