Green Bay Packers Verified account@packers
Mike McCarthy has now led the #Packers to 9 wins in the postseason, tying Vince Lombardi & Mike Holmgren for most in team history.

MIke McCarthy's 10th playoff victory moved him past Vince and Mike Holmgren, who each had 9 playoff victories in Green Bay
The Green Bay Packers never lost a football game.
They just ran out of time.

McCarthy has been calling some pretty solid games recently.  Love him or hate him, he's been known to have some coaching blunders throughout the playoffs in recent years (whether it be clock management or playcalling).  Love that he's been pretty sharp of late.

True. But Lombardi was 9-1 in the playoffs, and had five championships, including the first two Super Bowls (though of course, they weren't SB's until later).  MM is now 10-7, with one SB win. This is not to denigrate MM, but to put things in perspective. Also, trying to compare different eras is a fool's quest.

He wasn't comparing eras. He simply stated factual win totals. You are the one who brought in all the other details.

True. I never said that B brought up different eras. I was commenting in general on comparing different eras- as noted, a fool's quest. And the details? Those are facts. And all facts are true; the question is, are they relevant to the argument? That is for the people on this site to decide for themselves. As you might have noticed, I specifically said this was not to denigrate MM, but to add some perspective to his win total.

Let's just say that MM is a pretty good HC and move on.

”This team’s personality is one of a unique energy. They don’t swing too high, they don’t swing too low,” McCarthy said Monday. ”When you go through playoff runs, a lot of teams go through injuries. You have to overcome it. We will.”

This will be the Mike McCarthy led Green Bay’s fourth NFC Championship appearance in the past 10 seasons 2007, 2010, 2014, and 2016 -- the most in the NFC over that span.

That's because Mike McCarthy, like Bill Belichick, Vince Lombardi and all championship coaches understand,
"players win games, teams win championships..."

Have to agree it's impossible to compare eras.  Back in the 60s there were fewer levels to the playoffs also, fewer playoff games to play.  There was no wild card round.  For much of that time, the winner of the West division played the winner of the East and that was it, whoever won that game was the champ.

The Green Bay Packers never lost a football game.
They just ran out of time.

MIke McCarthy's 10th playoff victory moved him past Vince and Mike Holmgren, who each had 9 playoff victories in Green Bay

True. But Lombardi was 9-1 in the playoffs, and had five championships, including the first two Super Bowls (though of course, they weren't SB's until later).  MM is now 10-7, with one SB win. This is not to denigrate MM, but to put things in perspective. Also, trying to compare different eras is a fool's quest.
He wasn't comparing eras. He simply stated factual win totals. You are the one who brought in all the other details.

True. I never said that B brought up different eras. I was commenting in general on comparing different eras- as noted, a fool's quest. And the details? Those are facts. And all facts are true; the question is, are they relevant to the argument? That is for the people on this site to decide for themselves. As you might have noticed, I specifically said this was not to denigrate MM, but to add some perspective to his win total.

Back in the 60s you could keep your core together because there was no FA back then.  So with FA and the salary cap (and greater parity) perhaps what MM is doing now is could be considered more remarkable than what Vince did.
