The Green Bay Packers finally got rid of Mike McCarthy on Sunday after another brutal loss. Green Bay’s lackluster play despite having superstar quarterback Aaron Rodgers has had McCarthy on the hot seat for quite some time.
There are some people siding with McCarthy and blaming Rodgers for the situation. Former Packers tight end Mike Chmura had the following to say:

“Aaron might be happy, but Aaron, to me, looks like the prima donna basketball player in the NBA that wants his coach fired. There were rumblings last week — cause I listen to a lot of the national media — that were saying Aaron Rodgers is difficult to coach, whether that’s because he’s smart or whatever the case may be. He might be happy, but I don’t think he comes out of this looking good. He got his coach fired.”
Next season will be huge for Rodgers with the controversy of this season following him.
