Yeah, he doesn't seem like a big improvement, both him and McCarthy seem to be mediocre coaches.

In his defense, the 1st challenge I can't see how it was upheld. I legitimately do no understand... no one offered any explanation, Blandino disagreed, ect.

The 2nd one... ooooof...

Moss sat down with the Fox “NFL Kickoff” personalities on Sunday morning and hit on a few topics. Several of his answers indicated that Rodgers has too much power within the franchise.

“It didn’t work out this year,” Moss said when asked why McCarthy and Rodgers’ relationship didn’t work. “But you go back through the course of when Aaron Rodgers got his shot starting in 2008, they have grown exponentially together. They have created one of the most dynamic duos in the National Football League.

“Aaron Rodgers is going to be a Hall of Fame quarterback. Mike McCarthy’s résumé speaks for itself.”

But Moss let other feelings about Rodgers show when he was asked who he believes would be the best coach for Rodgers.

“Aaron Rodgers has been the head coach for the last nine years,” Moss said, theatrically looking to his left then up to the ceiling for several seconds. “Just joking, just joking.”

But he clearly wasn’t. The Packers’ braintrust said last week that Rodgers won’t help determine who the team hires as its next head coach. Moss was asked if he believed that.

“Yeah,” he said with an exaggerated wink. “I believe that.”

Moss followed, “They should listen to his input, but the final decision should rest on who the decision-makers would like to choose to lead this organization moving forward.”



Wow the more this guy talks the more you realize he's a piece of hot garbage.

He's a mini Hue Jackson. Head of the LB corps and he blames rookies and injuries for 12 years of mediocre line-backing.


Yeah, Rodgers does call the shots, I believe that. He's the guy extending plays on the field and making it up when plays break down.

But Rodgers is not responsible for missed challenges, calling plays based on situational probabilities, or poor clock management.

Eh, I think he knows he's attached at the hip with McCarthy getting another job.


If you listen to this guy it says a lot about him. Blame everyone. "A lot of players drafted they didn't work out." That theory doesn't hold water. A broken clock is right twice a day.

If they really drafted that many players and still trot out that LB corps it's more likely the coaching than the talent.

NFL Network's Mike Garafolo reported this past Saturday that ex-Packers coach Mike McCarthy is "very high up there" on the Jets' list of potential new head coaches.
Garafolo added the Jets are expected to go "big-game hunting" for their new coach after they fire Todd Bowles, which seems to be a foregone conclusion at this point. He's just playing out the string on his tenure these next two weeks. In addition to Garafolo, ESPN Jets reporter Rich Cimini also expects McCarthy to be on the Jets' list. Gang Green needs to get an offensive mind to help Sam Darnold. McCarthy could be that guy early on, but long-term he may not be the answer.


I could see this coming from a mile away

It's funny, he just gave an interview trying to repair his image and this story drops within hours of that.

He must have really pissed off the wrong people.

A source close to the team says St. Brown became frustrated because, as much as he wanted to follow McCarthy’s play design, he also heard rumors of Rodgers freezing out teammates if they didn't do exactly what he demanded. So he listened to Rodgers. On one play in New England, Rodgers told St. Brown to run a post route when the play called for a flag. St. Brown ran the post, and pressure forced Rodgers to throw the ball away toward the flag—leading his position coach to grill him on what he was thinking.

St. Brown told him he was "improvising" so he didn't upset Rodgers.

Knowing what was up, McCarthy told him to stick with the routes called.

"That's when it went off the rails," the source close to the team says. "This shoot was terrible. He screwed McCarthy over. Aaron undermined him."

The A.I. was operating on its own. Nobody was going to rein this in.

"Of course, it comes to a head, and what does he want to do?" says a source who was once close to Rodgers. "He wants to cut him out of his life, just like he cut his family out."

Rodgers refused to take scheduled throws underneath, instead waiting for a deep shot that rarely materialized. The lack of experience did not help. These rookies simply did not have the thousands of reps Rodgers once had with Nelson and company, so he couldn't make subtle audibles play after play with them. In one red-zone drill in practice, St. Brown didn't pick up on a signal, and Rodgers lost it. No, he wasn't exactly giving these rookies a chance to grow, either. A source close to one of the team's skill-position starters says Rodgers was the one "sinking the ship" with zero interest in developing Valdes-Scantling, St. Brown or Moore.

The slightest mistake faded them out of his peripheral vision and sent him back to zeroing in on Adams.

"If they don't make plays, you can't just not go to them again," this source says. "You have to keep building trust in them."

Instead, he chose not to throw the ball to rookies open in one-on-one coverage. It's likely no coincidence Valdes-Scantling faded out of the offense down the stretch. He ran the routes as they were called from the sideline, and his targets declined. Rodgers would look his way, then pat, pat, pat the ball for something else to develop. Why? A source close to the team says Valdes-Scantling told him Rodgers just didn't like him. That he wasn't doing exactly what Rodgers asked him to do, so the quarterback started to freeze him out.

"Can you imagine Mike McCarthy trying to coach through all this shoot?" that source asks.
