Hall Of Famer Rips Into Packers QB For Trade Or Retire Statements
Aww, poor Aaron Rodgers.
He can’t stand a little competition so he wants to be traded or threatens to quit. On the day of the NFL Draft, no less. So much for him being a team player.
I wonder if Rodgers learned to whine from Danica Patrick. She was known in some PR circles as “Queen Danica” while in IndyCar. Of course that odd relationship relationship had me scratching my head a bit in the first place. One minute they are buying a house together in Malibu and the next they are separated.
Well, I can tell you that Terry Bradshaw was spot-on when he called Rodgers “weak.”
“Him being that upset shows me how weak he is,” Bradshaw told WFAN’s “Moose and Maggie” on Monday after the NFL Draft. “Who the hell cares who you draft? He’s a three-time MVP in the league and he’s worried about this guy they drafted last year at No. 1? … And for him to be upset, my god, I don’t understand that; Pittsburgh drafted Mark Malone No. 1, Cliff Stoudt in the third or fourth round — I had them coming at me from all angles.
“I embraced it because when we went to practice, I wasn’t worried about those guys. They didn’t scare me a bit. So I don’t understand why he’s so upset at Green Bay.”
That is because, Terry, you are a champion and winner who gets inspired by competition. You are confident in your abilities. Rodgers, meanwhile, comes across as a wimp.
He added that if he were in Packers management, “I wouldn’t budge. Let him gripe, let him cry — retire, you’re 38, go ahead and retire, see you later. I’m really strong about stuff like that, and it just makes him look weak. In my way [of looking at things], it makes him look weak.”
Actually, it makes him look selfish and lacking in confidence. That’s not the trait you expect to see in a quarterback.
