Rodgers: Argument with McCarthy "definitely over and done with"

In an interview earlier today with Milwaukee's ESPN 540, Packers QB Aaron Rodgers downplayed the recent media hype about possible rising tensions between him and head coach Mike McCarthy, calling them a collision between two passionate people. During Sunday's loss to the Bengals, the two could clearly be seen arguing over what plays to run late in the first half. 

"That was definitely over and done with after we talked on the sideline," Rodgers said. "Mike and I have been together for a long time and had a lot of success together, a lot of big wins, a lot of fun on the field, in the meeting room conversing during the week. There's a lot of mutual respect there and a lot of competitiveness and passion on both sides, and every now and then that passion collides. It's something that we talked about later and moved forward together."

I'll take Rodgers' word on this. I've never seen him and McCarthy get mad at each other before, so it's likely that this was just something that happened in the heat of the moment.

There's a lot of emotion out there on the field. I'm surprised this doesn't happen more often.
