He didn’t directly say it, but former Green Bay Packers receiver Greg Jennings obviously thinks Bill Belichick is a MUCH better coach than Mike McCarthy.
Jennings was asked how many Super Bowls Aaron Rodgers would have won by now if he played for the Patriots. Jennings figured at least the five that Tom Brady has won. Probably more.
If @AaronRodgers12 had Bill Belichick has his head coach, how many Super Bowls would he have?

A few things here, obviously.
One, Jennings is saying Rodgers is more talented than Brady. But so what? Even Brady has acknowledged that.
Two, Jennings is saying Belichick is a better coach than Fat Mike. Well, that’s pretty obvious to everyone too.
Three, it goes back to the tiring conversation about how the Packers have wasted Rodgers’ career. There are a lot of things you can point to when it comes to that conversation. Primarily, a general manager that didn’t surround Rodgers with enough talent. This is a team game, after all. And a coach who probably won largely because of Rodgers’ greatness. That, in turn, kept him employed longer than he probably should have been.
Hell, it even got him a street with his name on it in Green Bay. Mike McCarthy should thank Aaron Rodgers for every single thing he’s got.
Case closed. Article is 100% correct.
Jennings is so full of shit now. One week hes trashing Rodgers the next hes talking him up like this. The paid TV appearance opportunities must be not coming in as much as they use to.
So Mr. Jones
You are saying Aaron Rodgers walked off the field at Cal in tu o Lambeau field the polished QB he is today.
Keep writing your fiction and stirring up your 13 year old fans.
You have become the biggest joke on the internet.
Rodgers stated his QB coach, nor McCarthy had changed his mechanics, he said t was something he did on his own.
I’m sure McCarthy has taught him things about the Pro game, but most of what Aaron does can’t be taught. If it could, everyone would be doing it.
I’d like to see where Rodgers said he changed his own mechanics.
Get in line Greg… that line goes around the corner and down the street. We all think McCarthy wasted Rodgers career.
I don’t think too many sane people would disagree with the article.
However, let’s just be thankful that Rodgers didn’t fall under some other lesser coach’s grasp. Rodgers benefited greatly from the situation he landed in when he was drafted. Having those few years to refine his abilities and not be thrown into action was key to his development.
In life it’s impossible to expect perfect conditions to just align themselves, but you can hope to get favorable ones, which is exactly what Rodgers got.
McCarthy is not the greatest, far from it. I think he should go, but let’s just try and refrain from this idea that Mccarthy wasted Rodgers and is the reason they’re not on their way for a 10-peat this year if only he had Belichick.
