Mike McCarthy Saying Packers QB Aaron Rodgers Wasn’t Disrespecting James Jones
Bears quarterback Jay Cutler often gets ripped by media and fans for publicly chastising his teammates, like he did to tackle J’Marcus Webb after Webb struggled in pass protection during Thursday’s game against the Packers.
But there was Aaron Rodgers in the same game with a public display of frustration and perhaps criticism for a teammate when he and receiver James Jones got crossed up, leading Rodgers to throw an interception.
Rodgers explained it by saying he was not on the same page with Jones.
“I was expecting him to come out flat,” Rodgers said after the game. “He started out flat and then kind of took it up. That’s about as frustrating as it gets right there.”
McCarthy said he regretted the route selection when he called the play.
Though the play went badly, he didn’t think the exchange between Rodgers and Jones was mean-spirited.
“There’s a line between playing with a lot of emotion and being disrespectful, and sometimes it looks the same,” McCarthy said. “I think that’s the reality of that particular situation. He’s not trying to disrespect James Jones by no means. He’s competing. He’s extremely competitive, and they talked about it immediately on the sidelines. I think that’s the case.”
