Davante Adams becomes latest Packer to defend Aaron Rodgers after controversial story

Rodgers suddenly was in the NFL news cycle last week, when a long story from Bleacher Report's Ty Dunne about the relationship between Rodgers and former Packers coach Mike McCarthy painted Rodgers as petty, a less-than-ideal leader and a tough teammate to play with. Adams is still Rodgers' teammate, and said he disagreed with how Rodgers was portrayed in the story.

What's next for Aaron Rodgers, Mike McCarthy, Matt LaFleur after explosive report

I think my biggest takeaway from Tyler Dunne's excellent unpacking of the Packers/Rodgers/McCarthy/Thompson story is this: Mike McCarthy is going to have work hard, and repair his tarnished image significantly in the next nine months, to have a real shot at a head-coaching job in 2020. With the broadsides he's taken since getting fired by the Packers late last season, McCarthy has a chance to be Brian Billick—a Super Bowl-winning coach damaged so much late in his tenure that he never g...

Mike McCarthy understands why Packers fired him, but isn't happy with how it was handled

Other than a classy gesture thanking Green Bay Packers fans, Mike McCarthy has been generally quiet since he was fired as the team's head coach. He opened up to ESPN.com's Rob Demovsky in his first interview since being fired, and while he shared his feelings on many subjects, what stood out was that he didn't appreciate how his time as Packers coach ended. With time to reflect, McCarthy told Demovsky he understood a change needed to be made.

Graham Harrell tasked with reviving USC offense with some ‘Air Raid’ flair

The North Texas football team had lost 11 times in 12 tries in 2015, marred by a futile offense that had trouble scoring points. The only school the Mean Green beat just recently started a football program. The following January, returning members of the shabby squad assembled in a meeting room to greet an LDN-L-USC HARRELL-0304overhauled coaching staff.
