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.
