Of course. Because why should anyone be held accountable?
Green Bay Packers coach Mike McCarthy is Mr. Accountability himself. Don’t tell him the offense is broken. The genius will not hear it!
So why should any of his players be held accountable? Especially Aaron Rodgers.
Rodgers has been in a slump since sometime during the 2015 season. On Sunday, he played easily his best game since probably 2014 and maybe broke out of that slump. Afterward, we commended him for it.
Just like we’ve pointed out every time he’s played like crap. Such is life when you’re the quarterback of the Green Bay Packers.
Well, McCarthy thinks any scrutiny of Rodgers is ridiculous.
“The scrutiny’s ridiculous,” McCarthy said. “We could talk about opinions, statistics and so forth, but I thought he played extremely well [Sunday]. I can’t compliment him enough.”
Part of that’s true. Rodgers did play extremely well on Sunday, as we’ve already said.
Fat Mike can shove the first part of that comment up his fat ass, though.
No one is above criticism. We expect McCarthy to defend his players each and every time at this point, but the attitude that you guys are idiots and we’re above reproach is tired.
As for Rodgers, we’ll see what happens. He certainly appears to be trending upwards, but one or two games a great season does not make.
I wonder if McCarthy feels scrutiny of him is also ridiculous. He certainly deserves it.
A version of this story on another site said that Rodgers season is back on track. If 4th down and the game to go was complete and was followed by a game winning field goal, then maybe it is back next track. That didn’t happen and the game was a 1 point loss. I don’t think that coach Lombardi would have been happy.
