The former NFL legend, Shannon Sharpe said – “But it brings me great pleasure for Aaron Rodgers to beat the Cowboys because it brings you so much pain, because you come out here every week walking on Cloud, talking about my Dallas Cowboy, and we did it we’re gonna do it.”

McCarthy will return to Lambeau Field but with Dallas Cowboys

McCarthy will return to Lambeau Field, when the Green Bay Packers meet the Dallas Cowboys on Nov. 13. McCarthy led the Packers for 13 seasons (2006-18) until becoming the Cowboys’ head coach in 2020. He is one of three Green Bay Packers head coaches to win a Super Bowl, and he has the second-most victories of any coach in team history, trailing only Curly Lambeau.

Shannon further took a dig at McCarthy and said nothing’s gonna change and that the Packers will win once again.

“But Rodgers has dominated the Cowboys. If he’s seven into against a cowboy. He’s won seven of his last eight stars, 16 touchdowns, and two interceptions. So I guess he does I mean, he might win another MVP. If he had to play the cowboy. He probably had like seven or eight of these things if he played the Cowboys every week.” – Shannon Sharpe
