Super Bowl Frenzy: McCarthy Calls Complaints 'Poor Decision'
Next game: February 6th at Super Bowl XLV vs. Pittsburgh
GREEN BAY, Wis. (AP) -- Green Bay Packers coach Mike McCarthy says injured players who were upset about potentially being left out of the Super Bowl team photo made a "poor decision" when they complained about it in public.
Still, the coach says it's no big deal for the team to take the photo late next week so the players can be included.
Earlier this week, linebacker Nick Barnett and tight end Jermichael Finley complained on their Twitter accounts that they weren't going to be in the team photo. The photo typically would be taken at media day next Tuesday, and injured players are not scheduled to join the team in the Dallas area until next Thursday.
McCarthy says cornerback Charles Woodson and quarterback Aaron Rodgers brought the issue to his attention. McCarthy then decided to schedule the photo for next Friday instead.
