Mike McCarthy's reaction to Aaron Rodgers criticizing Packers' game plan

The Green Bay Packers have been one of the better teams in the NFC this season so far, but they have yet to live up to their true potential as a franchise, especially on offense.

After four games, the Packers sit on a 2-1-1 record, with their most recent win coming last week against the Buffalo Bills by a scoreline of 22-0.

While the scoreline is impressive, the vast majority of those points came from the incredible play of the defense against a poor Bills offense. On offense, Green Bay struggled to benefit in the red zone and were limited to field goals as a result.

If they were to have the same offensive shortcomings later in the season or in the playoffs if they make it there, they will not win games.

It’s something which their quarterback, Aaron Rodgers, has quickly recognized as he showed his frustration with the Packers’ game plan following their win last week.

He stated that the team were “terrible on offense” and called for a game plan that would feature more of Davante Adams and Jimmy Graham.

Green Bay’s head coach Mike McCarthy has since responded to the criticism made by his quarterback, and while he understands the disappointment, he believes the team left a lot out on the field on Sunday.

He said, according to ESPN’s Rob Demovsky: “Hey, I’m no different, too. I’ve called a lot of games in this league and I’ve gone through a lot of game plans and still represent the team as a head coach.

“But when I closed my door last night and watched the game, I felt like we left a lot out there.”

When asked about his relationship with Rodgers, McCarthy said: “I have good relationships, proper relationships, with all of our players.

“Aaron and I, we have gone through a lot of years together, so I feel good about our relationship.”

While Packers fans will be glad that their head coach is open minded, things must change at the franchise before they meet tougher opponents later this season.

If things don’t, their offense might not be good enough to make the postseason later this year, no matter how well the defense plays.

Through four games, the Packers rank 17th in yards and 19th in points per game. They had at least five dropped passes on Sunday against the Bills, plus two turnovers.
