That's not to say that Rodgers would suck. But McCarthy has clearly made an impact on Rodgers' career.
This poll fits nicely right here. This is a poll of 103 players asked who is the most overrated coach. Here are the results.

Staff report Sporting News
With half the 2012 season finished, Sporting News' network of NFL correspondents asked 103 players from 27 teams everything you want to know about this year in our annual midseason players poll.
As always in our midseason poll, players were not allowed to name their teammates or head coach for any of their answers.
Who is the most overrated head coach?
Rex Ryan, Jets 35
Bill Belichick, Patriots 16
Andy Reid, Eagles 9
Mike Shanahan, Redskins 8
Mike Tomlin, Steelers 4
Jeff Fisher, Rams 3
Jim Harbaugh, 49ers 3
Norv Turner, Chargers 3
Pete Carroll, Seahawks 2
Jason Garrett, Cowboys 2
John Harbaugh, Ravens 2
Six coaches received one vote
"Rex Ryan. His coaching style is over the top. Some of the things he does in front of the cameras are way over the top. You put that with the New York media and he has a pretty big reputation, I guess. I don't even know if you'd call him overrated anymore because it's gonna be a couple of years since he was in the AFC finals. He's pretty funny, and he's a pretty good coach. But not THAT good." — AFC offensive player
There are lots of guys you could make an argument for though. Lovie Smith, Ravens Harbaugh, Mccarthy, and Tomlin could all be in the conversation.
Help me understand the love for Gary Kubiak.
He has a W/L of 54-50, two winning seasons, three if you count this year and 2 division titles. That is the extent of his resume. How does that translate to a top 5 coach in the NFL?

BTW, this is NOT a criticism of him just a desire to understand how he belongs with the best.
He took over a team that was 4 years old. I wouldnt expect his w/l reford to be great.
He was also a coach on three super bowl winners ncluding offensive coordinator for the broncos two sb
I'll troll around a bit for Whisenhunt. I don't think there's a culture/stigma that could've been harder to change than the one surrounding the AZ Cardinals. He has definitely made a huge impact on the franchise...
3) Sean Payton
Cameron Jordan is awesome
12.5 sacks and this http://instagram.com/p/jfs5DemKo3/
No Texans fan on earth will tell you that Gary Kubiak is a top 5 coach. As an offensive coordinator, he may be the best, but he is an average head coach.
