"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.
