TBT: "Fuckin' Cord... FUCK!" from Mike McCarthy

Writer's note: I'm Carl’s intern who made him a bunch of money for years with my independent NFL betting blog before stepping up to Barstool all of last season.

Working my way through a tough hangover, I tripped over my kid's toys this morning and instantly thought of this gem, only to find that it has been largely forgotten in Internet history:

Just a beautiful combination of simple slapstick...

…and inexplicably explosive rage

This happened on a Sunday night back in November 2014, with McCarthy's Packers neatly covering the -7.5 point spread by nearly five TDs. Given that lead, I'd say there was NO reason to lose his goddamn mind, but that's the reaction of a man who has tangoed with cords before. Generations of trauma. I honestly think it's why he left the league. But the game has evolved since: more pre-snap motion, play-action, and cordless communication. That's all he needed to hop back in the saddle.

As a Bears fan, I can't I was happy about the 50-burger, but at least it led to some personnel improvements. We quickly traded away Chris Conte for that cord and the Bears' secondary bounced back in a BIG way.

The Cowboys have never been short on talent, but replacing a soulless ginger at head coach with a big dog who curses at literally anything standing in his way could be what Dallas needs for a Super Bowl run this year.
