Aaron Rodgers Apologizes, Mike McCarthy Better Be Next

Aaron Rodgers sacked by Osi Umenyiora

Aaron Rodgers apologized to Green Bay Packers fans for Sunday’s loss to the New York Giants during his radio show this week.

And frankly, after the Packers went out, got abused like a rented mule and lost 38-10 while showing absolutely no fight, we were due an apology.

“Obviously we would have liked to show up better than we did on Sunday,” Rodgers said. “We apologize to our fans for that disappointing loss. We also encourage our fans to stick with us because we have five games left, still in a good position.”

Rodgers went on to address the Packers non-existent intensity and focus.

“I think there has to be some validity to that statement,” Rodgers said. “I think you have to ask each person individually. Each person has to look in the mirror after a game like that and ask themselves how much heart they thought they played with in that game. Personally, I was focused, I was prepared, I felt good about us going into the game. Started off good, touchdown on the first drive. Second drive, had it going pretty good, didn’t put any points on the board. After that, it was a struggle. They did a good job on defense, contained us, got after me. Got me off the spot. And we didn’t execute very well.”

Alright. Noted. Thank you.

Now, Mike McCarthy just needs to follow suit for assembling one of the most idiotic game plans in the history of game planning.

    This is why #12 is the best

    Will somebody tell M.M. that he is not a play caller.His calls are very predictable and old school. This is now 2012.Look at other teams plays vs. yours.Next time you have 4th down and inchs send out the kicker for a 55 yarder. And you get paided millions to call that crap.

      MM was the play caller last year when their offense was tearing it up.

    “Everyone has a plan, until they get punched in the mouth” – Mike Tyson

    Mike McCarthy should do himself a favor and admit he got punched in the mouth and let his planning get out of control on Sunday. Pack needs to learn from this experience. I hate to say it, but this current Packer team just doesn’t have enough experience in tough situations. I find myself consistently questioning their resilience.

    I don’t need an apology from Aaron Rodgers. I need him to throw the ball to the middle of the field against the two deep and forget about his damn passer rating. I need him to beat the coverage with his arm instead of expecting the scheme to do it. I need him to throw the short pass on 3rd down instead of throwing it 30 yards.

    I don’t need an apology from Mike McCarthy. I just need a win on Sunday. Preferably a big win.

    What he really wants to say is DAMN TED, should’ve signed that Lynch kid I used to play with at Cal, huh?

      Dang, man, if you knew Benson was going to be gone for damn near the whole season you should have shot TT an email!

      You know, might have saved the team some headaches.

    Lynch signed a new contract this offseason. The Packers would never have paid him. He would be playing elsewhere. Feels like I’ve said that before.

    Mike I know what you are saying,but this is not last year.I can call about 60% of MM plays sitting on my sofa. Defensive coaches are now reading his plays based on being too predictable.How come TT will not spent money on free agents.And do not tell me our defensive and offensive lines are better than any free agent that was out there.This team will have a winning record,a low draft pick and get beat round 1 of the play offs.
