Following a 22-0 victory over Buffalo last week Travis Fulgham Detroit Lions Jersey , Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers called the offense "terrible" and was critical of the plan spearheaded by coach Mike McCarthy.On Wednesday, Rodgers downplayed any rift with the man who has been his coach for his entire 13-year career."Mike and I talk all the time," Rodgers said. "We have a great relationship. There's always been great communication between us. Even if there (are) things that we need to talk about that are tough subjects, we've never had a problem finding time and talking," Rodgers said."For any relationship, it starts with good communication and being able to be honest with each other and then hug it out afterward," Rodgers added.Against the Bills, the Packers gained 423 yards and had their best day in terms of third-down efficiency since Week 1 of 2017. Rodgers, however, was in a sour mood after the team scored only two touchdowns.Rodgers again talked about his frustration with the state of the offense, though there was no criticism directed at McCarthy."Mike always says 'conflict is good Travis Fulgham Jersey 2019 ,'" Rodgers said. "You've got to keep the conversation going. We've got to find ways to be more efficient on offense. The execution wasn't where it needs to be. I'm always going to hold myself and this offense to a higher standard. I've got to play better and we've got to play better, because last week was unacceptable."McCarthy, who spoke at length about Rodgers' comments on Monday, was eager to move on, as well."He's super competitive," McCarthy said Wednesday. "I think we all feel the same way when you go out there and you see opportunities and sometimes emotion pushes forward. I didn't feel great about our offensive performance when I walked off the field Sunday myself, too."After five dropped passes and two turnovers against Buffalo, the offense's performance is going to have to improve headed into Sunday at Detroit. The Lions might be 1-3, but their lone win was 26-10 over New England at Ford Field in Week 3.Detroit also has one of the NFL's best cornerbacks in Darius Slay and the pass rush has 13 sacks.Green Bay's offense could be short-handed if two of its starting receivers are unavailable. Randall Cobb missed last week's game against Buffalo with a hamstring injury and didn't practice on Wednesday, while Geronimo Allison remains in the concussion protocol.That could leave only leading receiver Davante Adams and rookies Marquez Valdes-Scantling, J'Mon Moore and Equanimeous St. Brown. Of those three Travis Fulgham Jersey Mens , Valdes-Scantling has the only production with two catches for 41 yards."They're getting better," Rodgers said. "But I told those guys before Week 1, 'You're all going to get an opportunity at some point. When you step in, there's an expectation you're going to make the plays.' So, we've got to keep improving in practice."Rodgers didn't practice again on Wednesday as he recovers from the knee injury sustained in the season opener against Chicago. He intends to practice Thursday, like he did last week.To Rodgers, the path to improvement starts with getting the ball to Adams and the continued success of the running back trio of Aaron Jones, Jamaal Williams and Ty Montgomery. Accomplishing those things should improve an offense that has been so-so on third down and awful in the red zone."We've got to run the ball consistently and then be able to move the ball down the field in the play-action game," Rodgers said. "We haven't been able to hit a ton of that stuff, and I think it starts with moving the sticks and giving us more run opportunities." ALLEN PARK, Mich. (AP)Detroit Lions coach Matt Patricia said Thursday he was ”falsely accused” in a 1996 sexual assault allegation that resurfaced this week Youth Travis Fulgham Jersey , and he indicated that the matter has not been an issue as he has climbed from job to job in the years since.Patricia held a brief news conference one day after a Detroit News report that he and a friend were indicted 22 years ago by a Texas grand jury on one count each of aggravated sexual assault. They were accused of assaulting a woman on South Padre Island. The accuser did not testify and the case was dismissed.”I was innocent then, and I am innocent now,” Patricia said.The Lions said Wednesday night that a pre-employment background check did not turn up the incident. The team said Patricia was 21 at the time and on spring break in Texas. The Lions said they were standing by Patricia.An NFL spokesman said Thursday the league ”will review the matter with the club to understand the allegations and what the club has learned.”Lions owner Martha Firestone Ford, general manager Bob Quinn and president Rod Wood were at Thursday’s news conference but did not speak.”I’m here to defend my honor and clear my name. Twenty-two years ago, I was falsely accused of something very serious,” Patricia said . ”There were claims made about me that never happened. While I’m thankful on one level that the process worked, and the case was dismissed, at the same time, I was never given the opportunity to defend myself.”Patricia took a few questions but did not provide details about the day in question.”I was falsely accused of something that I did not do,” he said.The Detroit News, citing a March 1996 story in the Brownsville (Texas) Herald White Travis Fulgham Jersey , said Patricia and a friend were accused of entering the hotel room where the woman was sleeping and sexually assaulting her. The men were arrested later that night and released on bond, according to the story and court records.The indictment came that August, but the case was eventually dismissed. The Detroit News posted a motion to dismiss from January 1997, which said the alleged victim did not feel she could ”face the pressures or stress of a trial.”Patricia’s first NFL coaching job was as an assistant with the New England Patriots in 2004, and he remained with them through last season, when he was the defensive coordinator. He was hired by the Lions in February to replace Jim Caldwell.Before joining the Patriots, Patricia worked as a graduate assistant in 1996 at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute, his alma mater. That was before he spent two years working as an aeronautical engineer. Patricia was an assistant coach at Amherst and a graduate assistant at Syracuse before moving on to the NFL.”I’ve interviewed for a lot of jobs,” Patricia said. ”Interviewing for jobs in engineering right after the situation happened, it was never an issue, it never came up as anything Danny Amendola Jersey , because it was dismissed, and I was innocent, so it just has never been part of any process that I’ve been involved with.”Patriots coach Bill Belichick said the team wasn’t aware of the legal case and expressed support for Patricia.”For 14 years in our organization, Matt conducted himself with great integrity and is known to be an outstanding coach, person and family man,” Belichick said in a statement. ”We have always been confident in Matt’s character and recommended him highly to become the head coach of the Detroit Lions.”—
