Aaron Rodgers reacts to Mike McCarthy news, blasts anonymous Cowboys players

Mike McCarthy’s debut season with the Dallas Cowboys could not have gotten off to a more inauspicious start, but one of his former players attempted to put a positive spin on recent unflattering reporting about the already-embattled head coach.

The Cowboys have stumbled out of the gate to the tune of a 2-4 record, and a report in which anonymous players on the team blasted McCarthy and his coaching staff has only made things worse.

Reporting by Jane Slater of NFL Network is nothing short of damning for McCarthy.

McCarthy has come out and addressed the troubling allegations after the bombshell reporting surfaced Tuesday, and Aaron Rodgers — who of course has a long history with the coach from their time together with the Green Bay Packers — reacted to the emerging firestorm in Big D.

Making his weekly appearance on “The Pat McAfee Show,” Rodgers pointed out that despite their woeful start, the Cowboys are nevertheless in first place in the putrid NFC East.

Rodgers went on to castigate the Cowboys players who chose to air their grievances anonymously.

“You never want those unnamed sources to come out. I think that’s some chickens–t,” Rodgers added.

The relationship between Rodgers and McCarthy soured toward the end of their partnership in Green Bay, but it sounds like the Packers star isn’t about to kick his former head coach when he’s already down.
