Aaron Rodgers Reacts To Mike McCarthy’s Performance in Dallas

There’s a lot of drama in Dallas.


On Tuesday, NFL Network’s Jane Slater reported that players are slamming the coaching staff, stating “the coaches are not good at their jobs.”


That is not a good look for new head coach Mike McCarthy, but at least he has one player coming to his defense. Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers believes this is just an overreaction.


During his weekly appearances on The Pat McAfee Show, Rodgers was asked about McCarthy’s coaching in Dallas through these first six weeks, where the Cowboys stand 2-4. Rodgers has been once reported to having beef with McCarthy in the past, but he took the high road with his response.


“As far as I know what the facts are today. They’re in 1st place in the division,” Rodgers said. “First place in any division regardless of the record assures you a home playoff game. We won our division in 2013 at 8-7-1.”

Before Dallas, McCarthy was out of the league since 2018. His reason for being ousted in Green Bay, despite giving 13-years and a Super Bowl title, was his tainted relationship with Rodgers.


Rodgers was asked about his reaction to McCarthy being hired in Dallas back in January and according to Matt Schneidman, Rodgers claimed there was not bad blood and that he sent McCarthy a congratulatory text message.


Fast forward to the present, the Cowboys are sputtering out of control. The defense allows more than 30 points per game and the locker room is coming unglued. This is the worst time for this to happen, especially with Dak Prescott out for the year with a fractured ankle.
