Dispatches from the War on Timeouts: Part 1

In Game 1 of the NFL season, Mike McCarthy showed he’s in midseason form. All three first half timeouts were wasted – two in the first quarter.

1st timeout – to avoid too many men on the field

2nd timeout – to avoid a delay of game

3rd timeout – to avoid a delay of game

That’s pitiful coaching. Maybe some is on Aaron Rodgers, but this is year 8 of the McCarthy regime. You’d think he’d prepare his team for the clock. But that wouldn’t be Packers football, I reckon.

On the other sideline, Pete Carroll hit the 2 minute warning in the first half with all three of his timeouts and a goofy smile on his face.¬†Sometimes it’s too easy for Pete.
