I am no fashionista. I think old jeans and a flannel is dressing up. I rarely spend more than $50 on an article of clothing.
But even I know that Mike McCarthy’s aqua mock turtleneck and black blazer is hideous. I mean awful.
Okay, on to more interesting news: McCarthy was unusually critical of the officiating crew from Sunday’s loss to the Bears. Or at least to the ref who put Nick Barnett in a sleeper hold and took him down to the turf. The entire transcript is here (along with a photo of McCarthy in his full aqua glory).
Here is the part on Barnett:
I tell you what, I’ve never seen anything like that in all my years. I didn’t see the whole thing, but I thought the official was totally out of line, the way he grabbed Nick around his neck and pulled him out of there. There was a lot going on throughout the game on both sides of the ball after the play was over. Their offensive line was getting after Nick there a bunch down the stretch, and that goes on in these type of games. I didn’t see the whole thing, but I saw the end of it, and I thought it was totally unprofessional, I thought it was totally out of hand.
