We don’t see many flags on coaches in the NFL, but Green Bay Packers coach Mike McCarthy picked one up on Sunday after arguing with referees.
McCarthy’s beet red face drew some responses on Twitter.

The actual face brought many comical thoughts to the mind of the Twitterverse.

The Packers trailed 24-7 at half after being thoroughly outplayed by the Falcons for two quarters. Just what is a coach to say to his team at half after that?
There is one thing that McCarthy can do.
