Greg Jennings said Mike McCarthy “cuffs” Packers in postseason

Greg Jennings took another shot at his former team, blaming Mike McCarthy for Aaron Rodgers having only one Super Bowl title in Rodgers’ nine seasons as a starter.

“I’m just going to flat-out say it: If we had a lead, our issue wasn’t the defense — our issue was Mike McCarthy,” Jennings said Wednesday on Fox Sports, where he serves as an analyst. “[McCarthy] would cuff us. . . . When you watch New England play, when they have a lead, they go for your throat; they don’t relax. . . . They have a great quarterback [in Tom Brady]; they have arguably the best quarterback in football, but they have — no doubt about it — the best head coach in football.”

Jennings has ripped the Packers and Rodgers since the receiver’s contentious split with the team in 2013.

McCarthy, who has a 114-61-1 regular-season record and a 10-8 postseason record in 11 seasons with the Packers, said a year ago that he’s “not a conservative coach” after continuing to be dogged by the Packers’ blown 16-0 lead in the NFC Championship Game during the 2014 season.
