Packers QB Aaron Rodgers screams at coach Mike McCarthy

Sometimes, fire and passion is lauded as leadership. Other times, it's just someone being a jerk-face. You make the call.


One thing we know about Chicago Bears QB Jay Cutler is that he'll never be a finalist for the Mr. Congeniality award at the end of the season. Why? Because he can be rather fussy at times.

We've also seen other 'leaders' in the NFL not care about using filters, like Tom Brady, Peyton Manning, and even Aaron Rodgers. But, hey, THEY ARE WINNERS.

In Sunday's contest versus the Vikings, the Packers were fighting for the #2 seed in the NFC, and the Vikings were fighting for a Wild Card. There was some confusion on a play at the goal line, and Packers coach Mike McCarthy threw the red challenge flag when he shouldn't have.

Immediately recognizing the error, Aaron Rodgers STORMS to the sideline and screams at his head coach, thinking the Packers would end up getting flagged for challenging a play that they shouldn't have (the play was reviewed upstairs, and the Packers were penalized, but the TD stood).

This was Aaron Rodgers:


This was not even mentioned in the live broadcast, and barely touched upon in the Twitterverse. And it probably won't be talked about on the major networks after the game.

Now, imagine that was Jay Cutler, screaming at his head coach. Think that reaction would be different?
