Green Bay Packers coach Mike McCarthy pretty much trashed the officials as he was coming off the field at halftime, on Sunday.
The Packers had just watched their lead get trimmed from 17-3 to 17-10, when San Diego scored a touchdown two second before the half. McCarthy suggested the Chargers’ right tackle moved prior to the snap on the scoring play.
He did flinch slightly, but it was hardly noticeable.
Still, McCarthy said, “We’ve got to play above the officiating,” when asked how his team would have to adjust in the second half.
Interestingly, the Chargers incurred nine penalties on the day to the Packers’ six. Should have been 10, if you ask Big Mike.
