Green Bay Packers QB Aaron Rodgers and head coach Mike McCarthy have quietly been one of the top QB-HC duos in the league for a decade now. But things could soon change between the two according to Peter King.
During an appearance on The Dan Patrick Show, King indicated that if the Packers (3-3-1) fail to make the playoffs this year, it could open the door for McCarthy to leave Green Bay.
"If the Packers don't make the playoffs, you're definitely going to have to watch Green Bay..." King said.
From his appearance on the show.
As for McCarthy's destination, King wasn't so certain that Cleveland would be the destination, but understood where the speculation originated from.
"A lot of people are doing two-plus-two because [Cleveland Browns GM John] Dorsey used to be there... I'm not saying it won't happen, at all..."
McCarthy took over the Packers in 2006 - the year after Rodgers was drafted. However, with then-starter Brett Favre still playing at a high level, Rodgers did not get his first NFL start until 2008.
Green Bay went on to go 6-10 in their first year together, but then made the playoffs eight straight times, claiming five division titles and winning Super Bowl XLV.
