In Jermichael Finley's six year NFL career, he only caught passes from one quarterback and he only played for one coach. There are only a handful of people who know how the Aaron Rodgers and Mike McCarthy dynamic works behind the scenes, and Finley is one of them. The former Green Bay Packers tight end joined Chuck & Winkler on 105.7 FM The FAN in Milwaukee on Thursday morning to discuss why the relationship may have soured and what may have lead to McCarthy's firing. In the interview, co-host Chuck Freimund also asked about where McCarthy might land next, and according to Finley, it may not be in the role that many are assuming.


Chuck Freimund: "Can McCarthy go to another team that doesn't have a Hall of Fame quarterback and get something out of it?

Jermichael Finley: "No sir, not at all. I think McCarthy is more of a now, an offensive coordinator, a behind the scenes guy. I don't think he should take the head job. Here in Green Bay he had a system. He had a quarterback, a system... I just think he's an offensive coordinator in any other system."

CF: "So you don't think McCarthy is head coach material anymore?"

JF: "Not after what I've seen these two or three years. I just don't see him orchestrating a team right now. I just don't see it." 


Also in the interview, Finley discussed why Aaron Rodgers isn't playing up to the standard that fans are used to as well as how and McCarthy always had a strong and open relationship. Listen below.
