Aaron Rodgers Proves Once Again He’s A Terrible Leader With These Comments
Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers once again proved he’s not a great locker room guy with some recent comments.
Rodgers told the media the following, according to ESPN:
It was one of the worst cards sessions we’ve had. I don’t know how you can make it any simpler. You literally have what the play would be in our terminology on the card, and the effort level was very low, especially with what I’m accustomed to. I’ve been running that period for a number of years. So it’s not a good start for us on the card period for the young guys. I think [DeAngelo] Yancey has really progressed, G-Mo [Geronimo Allison]. Obviously, 16 [Jake Kumerow]. But everybody else was kind of piss poor.
Well, I can’t say I’m exactly surprised. I don’t think anybody has ever thought Rodgers was the epitome of a great teammate.
This is the type of stuff that should be said behind closed doors. It’s not the kind of stuff that you spew off to the media about the “piss poor” effort your teammates are giving. Again, they’re your teammates. They’re not the enemy. You should be going to bat for them at every turn. (RELATED: BRETT FAVRE’S RELATIONSHIP WITH AARON RODGERS HAS TAKEN A SURPRISING TURN)
Of course, this isn’t the first time Rodgers has shown he’s not exactly the kind of guy you would want to grab beers with. Former teammate Jermichael Finley has accused Rodgers of being “self-centered.”
The sad thing about Rodgers is the fact he is actually reasonably talented. He has no problem slinging the football around at all. He can make plays, but he’s just never been able to shake the vibe that he’s not a great leader. That’s not exactly a great situation for a quarterback, which is the most important position in all of sports.
It’s a real shame that I have to come in here when I was trying to have a fun day, and remind everybody that Rodgers isn’t the saint everybody thinks he is. It’s a real shame.
