The Neighborhood: McCarthy won’t sacrifice longevity for Rodgers’ window

GREEN BAY, Wis. — Among the many things discussed by Green Bay Packers coach Mike McCarthy during Wednesday morning’s training camp introductory press conference were some seemingly innocuous statements about longevity.

“Programs win championships,” McCarthy began, referring back to his thought process as a first-year coach in 2006. “I never thought to sell the farm and be a one-year wonder.”

But after elaborating on his response, it’s clear McCarthy and the Packers have discussed comments from last winter’s playoff run where quarterback Aaron Rodgers put the pressure on management to get him players that can win.

“We’ve just got to make sure we’re going all-in every year to win,” Rodgers said after an NFC Championship Game loss to the Atlanta Falcons. “And I think we can take a big step this offseason.”

A lot has been made in recent years about 33-year-old Rodgers and his perceived “window” closing — a reference to the number of years he might remain in elite playing shape. If Rodgers’ pleas were answered, it wouldn’t be the first time a future Hall-of-Fame quarterback got his team to help him win another Super Bowl.

In Peyton Manning’s final season in 2015, the Denver Broncos made a number of free agency moves, highlighted by cornerback Aqib talib and outside linebacker DeMarcus Ware. That was enough to send him out on top in his 17th NFL season.

Adding to the intrigue was a recent admission by Rodgers that he was entering the “back nine” of his career.

Fast forward to July 26, 2017 in front of reporters in the media auditorium at Lambeau Field, McCarthy seemed unwilling to give in to hints that Rodgers wants more weapons at the expense of prospects.

“Those eight [consecutive years of] playoff victories are a clear reflection of our championship-level program…But my focus is on continuing to grow that.”

“We’ve always focused on the program. We’ve never sold out to win one game.”

Despite McCarthy’s unwillingness to adapt a more nearsighted approach to team-building, general manager Ted Thompson helped acquire players with plenty of star power. Among the notable additions were tight ends Martellus Bennett and Lance Kendricks, defensive tackle Ricky Jean Francois, and offensive guard Jahri Evans.

Green Bay will get its first look at the newest Packers when pads come on during Thursday morning’s first training camp practice.

The Neighborhood debates: Derrick Rose or John Henson? (AUDIO)

MADISON, Wis. — With the Milwaukee Bucks and free agent point guard Derrick Rose reportedly having mutual interest in a free agency signing, the boys of The Neighborhood were at odds.

The Joe & Ebo Experience: Them Be Fightin’ Words

MADISON | Not sure if there’s something in the air or everyone just woke up on the wrong side of the bed, but it got testy today.

With caller on caller violence running rampant on the airwaves this lovely Tuesday, it got me thinking on a new event… THE ZONE’S FIRST PAY PER VIEW WRESTLING MATCH! Seriously, let’s make this happen. I need something to hold me over until football is back.

In between the on-air spats, we also get into our own power rankings in the NFL and try and nail down our Brewers party. Give it a listen.

The Joe & Ebo Experience: Cutty Does It

MADISON | A very tough day in the NFL, but when we’re feeling down, we must remember the good times.

It’s with a heavy heart that I type this… Jay Cutler’s playing days are behind him. *tries to hold back the tears* That’s right. Jay Cutler is hanging it up for a job in the broadcast both. *tears begin to flow*

We’ll never forget you and all the love you showed the Packers defense, Jay.

The news was so upsetting that Joe Miller couldn’t even complete the show. He was sure to give his love though, as well as

The Joe & Ebo Experience: Did You Say Rookie Or Wookie

MADISON | May the Fourth be with you,  you nerds.

How can people not love Star Wars? I could go on a rant here, but I won’t. I guess I’ll just never understand how someone can’t appreciate cinema at it’s finest.

Now, before I pop in the Empire Strikes Back,  which rookie do you think will make the biggest impact for the Packers this season? We get into that and celebrate everything Star Wars.

The Joe & Ebo Experience: Take The Over

MADISON | Ah, you think gambling is your ally? You merely adopted gambling. We were born in it, molded by it.

Vegas has released the Over/Under’s for the NFL season and we couldn’t be happier as the Joe & Ebo Show was born from a gambling show.

Speaking of gambling, would you gamble on potentially trading Eric Thames for some more prospects for the Brewers and their rebuild moving forward? It got a little heated today.

MADISON | We need football back in our lives, like, right now.

We got a taste of some NFL action with the Draft, and it got our juices flowing. Apparently, after cutting Michael and Jackson, Ted Thompson wasn’t finished yet either.

Also, who saw this coming from the Milwaukee Brewers? Keep turning up the heat!
