It’s just the third time in McCarthy’s 12 years as head coach he has fired a coordinator.

McCarthy fired defensive coordinator Bob Sanders following the 2008 season, which was the last time — until this year — the Packers missed the playoffs. He also fired special teams coordinator Shawn Slocum after the 2014 season.

It’s not known whether Capers, 67, will retire from coaching. He said last month that he planned to coach as long as I enjoy it.

If I ever feel like I can’t come in and give as much as I’ve got and do the kind of job that you want to do, then I won’t do it anymore, said Capers, who has been in the NFL since 1986 and was a head coach for the Carolina Panthers and Houston Texans.

The Giants need someone to clean up a lot of messes, and Toub has been long overdue to make the John Harbaugh-like jump from this position under Reid. He should have been a hotter candidate when he held the same position in Chicago. At 55, Toub has the right blend of experience and energy for the job.

Winnipeg added another with 2.5 seconds left in the second when a giveaway led to a goal by Little.

Perreault made it 5-0 in the third on a power play.

The retirements of Bruce Arians and Carson Palmer on consecutive days represents the end of an era in Arizona. The Cardinals, though, have to guard against the start of another, less-welcome era 鈥?the No-Quarterback Era.

The Cardinals, health permitting, have everything else they need to pick up where Arians left off. At the top of that list is general manager Steve Keim, Sporting News’s NFL Executive of the Year three seasons ago, when they went through three quarterbacks and still landed at 11-5 and in the playoffs. Considering they went through three quarterbacks again this season, plus other major player losses, Keim might have earned a few votes for coming in at 8-8.
