The Packers Have Fired Mike McCarthy.
“The 2018 season has not lived up to the expectations and standards of the Green Bay Packers. As a result, I made the difficult decision to relieve Mike McCarthy of his role as head coach, effective immediately,” Packers president Mark Murphy said in a statement on Sunday. “Mike has been a terrific head coach and leader of the Packers for 13 seasons, during which time we experienced a great deal of success on and off the field. We want to thank Mike, his wife, Jessica, and the rest of the McCarthy family for all that they have done for the Packers and the Green Bay and Wisconsin communities. We will immediately begin the process of selecting the next head coach of the Green Bay Packers.”
The announcement came just three hours after the Packers’ home loss to the Arizona Cardinals. Offensive coordinator Joe Philbin will reportedly act as head coach while the team seeks a permanent replacement.
Meek Mill Paid a Visit to CNN to Talk Criminal Justice Reform.
“I always dreamed of being on @CNN and being able to speak for the voiceless generation of America,” Meek tweeted on Saturday morning. During his interview, he also addressed criticism surrounding his personal history with law enforcement, including the gun charge he received in 2008.
“I grew up in America in a ruthless neighborhood where we were not protected by police,” he said. “We grew up with people selling drugs in our neighborhood on our front steps. We grew up in ruthless environments. We grew up around murder . . . If you grew up in my neighborhood, you see seven people die a week, I think you would probably carry a gun yourself?”
Meek’s new album, Championships, dropped Friday (Nov. 30).

“In any claim, evidence matters. Evidence always matters. But what happens when it’s just one person’s word against another’s, and the stories don’t agree? That’s when people tend to pass judgment on who is more credible than whom,” Tyson wrote.
