Aaron Rodgers is defending his head coach against criticism from outsiders. Well, in this case, a specific outsider.

Greg Jennings, who played from the Packers from 2006-2012, has been critical of the team since his departure. His most recent comments were aimed at Mike McCarthy.

“If we had a lead, our issue wasn’t the defense, our issue was Mike McCarthy,” Jennings said on FS1’s “Undisputed” last week. “He would cuff us. When you watch New England play, when they have a lead, they go for your throat, they don’t relax.”

Rodgers didn’t even see Jennings’ comments but nevertheless defended his coach to TODAY’S TMJ4’s Lance Allan.
