Mike McCarthy: Aaron Rodgers Relationship Good
Aaron Rodgers called out Green Bay Packers coach Mike McCarthy for his game plan against Buffalo. That led to speculation their relationship might be strained.
McCarthy says that is not the case.
“I have good relationships, proper relationships, with all of our players,” McCarthy said. “Aaron and I, we have gone through a lot of years together. So I feel good about our relationship. … Aaron’s given a lot of responsibility, and rightfully so. He’s earned that, at the line of scrimmage and during the preparation process. That’ll continue as it’s been for quite some time.”
Rodgers was critical of the lack of opportunities for Davante Adams and Jimmy Graham specifically. He also suggested that perhaps he isn’t involved in the game plan as much as he’d like.
He deflected a question about the game planning process by saying that wasn’t for him to answer.
Rodgers had a decent game on Sunday, throwing for 298 yards and a touchdown. However, the Packers should have won by more than 22 points. While calling the offense terrible, Rodgers suggested the team should have put up more than 40 points.
That seems accurate.
As for McCarthy, he didn’t really suggest his relationship with Rodgers is great there, did he?
