However, the Packers now have a 4-7-1 overall record in 2018 after entering the season with expectations of being a playoff contender.
The only surprising thing about the decision is the timing.
Vikings coach Mike Zimmer, who has gone up against McCarthy 10 times, didn't agree with Green Bay's decision. If McDaniels wants to leave New England, he will find an interested party in the coming years.
The Washington & Jefferson graduate spent four years, from 2007-2011, as the offensive coordinator with the Packers before leaving the team for his first head coaching job with the Miami Dolphins.
The Packers had dominated opponents all season with Rodgers, the NFL MVP, and a humming offense. There's much to consider for all parties involved. Whoever is next, Green Bay, make sure Rodgers has a say.
And the skills of one of the great quarterbacks of his era - an era when offense is paramount for success - are being wasted. It was the first time Green Bay had lost to the Cardinals at home since 1949, when the Cardinals franchise was based in Chicago. That set up McCarthy's biggest single-game failure with the Packers. When things broke down, and Rodgers freestyled, his wideouts couldn't shake free and improvise.
What Brady lacks in physical skills, he more than makes up for with smarts and a willingness to work within the system. The secondary, as it is pretty much every year, is ravaged by injuries. I feel Tom Brady is precise, easier to play with. Specifically, according to the SI report, McCarthy took issue with Rodgers' propensity to improvise - a trait that often conflicted with his own play calling.

Rodgers accepted some of the blame after Sunday's loss. The offensive line is a mess more often than it is a plus.
All the while, he was butting heads with McCarthy, too. Who could forget this sideline blow-up? They also struggled on third down, a season-long theme. "I love working with him". The general consensus at the time was that he stayed because the Patriots "promised" him the head coaching job once Bill Belichick decides to head for the hills.
For a second straight year, it was a rout in the playoffs despite having Rodgers because of not being able to adjust to a strong opponent repeatedly exploiting the same weakness.
"Aaron's not going to come out of this looking good". But they could also butt heads.
After firing Hue Jackson in late October, the Browns quietly began their search for their next head coach.
Maybe all Rodgers needs is a change in voice. Perhaps McDaniels would be the same for Rodgers in a similar juncture of his career. However, if he wants to prove he can coach in the National Football League, this could be the optimal time and place.
McCarthy shook up his coaching staff, including bringing Philbin back as offensive coordinator and hiring Mike Pettine to replace Dom Capers as defensive coordinator.
