He admitted it was a mistake but clearly wasn't happy that a teammate or teammates were quoted anonymously insinuating that... You know what that was?
The ham-sandwich compensation is a clear indication the Packers were looking to move on from the running back following Sunday's blunder.
Montgomery's intention obviously was not to fumble, but that's precisely why he was told to take a knee. The turnover prevented quarterback Aaron Rodgers from getting one final possession with two minutes left for a shot at a game-winning score.
We are not questioning the type of person Montgomery is.
"You trust your players on tough decisions, close decisions", McCarthy said. "As far as the drama, the nonsense about it, I have nothing to say". We know what to do in what situation and that's what makes us the team we that we are - unselfish players, situational masters.
"That play didn't lose the game, but it took away an opportunity to win", Rodgers said.
Packers: WR Randall Cobb had four catches for 40 yards in his return from a three-game absence with a hamstring injury. Unfortunately I ended up fumbling the football and I don't think we would be having this conversation if I didn't fumble the football because we know how good our two-minute offense is, but I've never been a guy that completely disobeys what I'm being told.
"Our defense was playing really well and stopping them over and over again". Green Bay lost 29-27.
Penalties were kept to a minimum (two for 10 yards), and the Packers didn't turn the ball over until Montgomery's fateful fumble.
After the first quarter, the tide started shifting and the Rams offense started clicking.
"That was probably my favorite (win) of the year", said Goff, who went 19 for 35 without an interception. "When the momentum swings the other way, you can't fight it, you have to embrace it".
No matter what happens, the good news for Los Angeles is any decision made is going to be done to put the team in the best position possible to continue being one of the top contenders in the NFC.
The receiver-turned-running-back still donned a wideout number, had great hands, and seemed like he could be the back of the future.
"There's a lot of things to build off of, but the situational awareness, execution, communication down the stretch there, that was our failure", McCarthy said.
