Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers told ESPN 540 in Milwaukee today that he doesn’t have any problems with head coach Mike McCarthy after their heated argument on the sidelines of this past week’s loss to the Bengals.
“That was definitely over and done with after we talked on the sideline,” Rodgers said, via ESPN.com. “Mike and I have been together for a long time and had a lot of success together, a lot of big wins, a lot of fun on the field, in the meeting room conversing during the week. There’s a lot of mutual respect there and a lot of competitiveness and passion on both sides, and every now and then that passion collides. It’s something that we talked about later and moved forward together.”
McCarthy indicated on Sunday that Rodgers is a competitive player.
“I think anytime you get into a situation where there’s a change in rhythm and personnel and play calls, things like that, it’s frustrating,” McCarthy said Sunday. “I had called a certain play in a certain situation, and he was frustrated by it. I feel good. One [disagreement] every three weeks would be awesome.”
“He’s competitive, man. That’s what I love about him. I didn’t really think it was that big of a deal, frankly.”
