During the Green Bay Packers' 34-30 loss to the Cincinnati Bengals on Sunday, Packers coach Mike McCarthy and quarterback Aaron Rodgers had a much-discussed short discussion with passion on the sidelines.
After he arrived back in Green Bay, he had a chance to see the highly-talked about "argument" while watching Sunday Night football with his family.
"I was sitting there watching the game Sunday night with my boy Jack, and saw it on T.V.," said McCarthy on "The Mike McCarthy Show."
"He got a kick out of it. He thought, 'Wow. If that's bad, I'd be in real trouble at home.' "
McCarthy and Rodgers have both made a point to play down the argument which millions of people saw on television, but which is mirrored every day in regular life, then forgiven and forgotten about.
"I think it's totally overblown," said McCarthy about the disagreement. "It was quick and short, and we moved on. It wasn't a big deal."
