City of Green Bay delays naming a street after McCarthy

A plan to name part of Ashland Avenue after Packers coach Mike McCarthy has been delayed by the City of Green Bay, according to the Green Bay Press-Gazette. Some of the problems that have been brought up about it is whether or not grant money should be used for it and if it's right to name a street after somebody who hasn't yet retired. 

Brett Favre Pass, a street just south of Lombardi Avenue, was not made until after Favre retired. So it seems logical to wait for McCarthy's career to end. He deserves a street name, but I think he should pad his stats before he gets it.
