Here I go again. I did a little research. Here is what I discovered, and it may be relevant.

Hypothetically, if Reggie McKenzie had been hired as GM with the Green Bay Packers in 2006, would he have fired Mike McCarthy? McKenzie did work for the Packers from 1994 to 2012, but he probably did not have the power to fire McCarthy in 2006.

The reason I asked this question is because McCarthy had an 8-8 record at the end of his first year as head coach for the Packers. Note that 2006 was the first year McCarthy was head coach. Somehow, the decision-makers were patient with him. The data is posted below.

It took about five years for the Packers to become Super Bowl champions under the coaching of McCarthy. McCarthy's record was not monotonic. In his third year, his numbers dropped down to a 6-10, although the previous year, it was 13-3. In his third year, McCarthy's win percentage was only.375.

Jackson's percentage is .500.

Is it possible, I conjecture, that if McKenzie were in charge in 2006, he would have released McCarthy...
