Packers QB Rodgers Slams NFC Over Their Play in the Pro Bowl

Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers blasted the effort of some of his NFC teammates on his weekly radio show on ESPN 540 by way of Kevin Seifter of ESPN.com.

“I’ll be honest with you,” Rodgers said. “I was a little bit disappointed. I felt like some of the guys on the NFC side embarrassed themselves.”

“Just like I did in 2010, I took a lot of pride in the way I played,” Rodgers said. “I wanted to make sure I knew the plays. It was our [Packers coaching] staff, which helped out a little bit, but I wanted to know the plays and I wanted to play well, and I wanted to give the fans a show, and make the Green Bay fans who watched and were watching for me and my teammates, I wanted to make them proud of their Pro Bowlers. I was just surprised that some of the guys either didn’t want to play or when they were in there didn’t put any effort into it.”

“Overall, I was just disappointed by the lack of pride by some of the players that played in the game.”

    This guy is the biggest attention hound I’ve ever seen. Trashing other pro bowlers for not cracking on one another when he’s playing the one position that is “hands off” per the rules, especially in the Pro Bowl. Rodgers little run obviously went to his head, but I bet he’s going to start finding people are already full of his whinning real soon.

      You must be a Favre fan. He’s a quarterback, so what position would he have played other than quarterback in the Pro Bowl? And QBs get sacked all the time, so saying the position is “hands off” is like saying ballet dancers don’t really dance.

      I also don’t know where that little jab about whining comes from. Aaron doesn’t whine, and he doesn’t go around singing his own praises like a lot of other players do. He does his talking on the field with his talent. He’s standing at what, ummm 122.5 in passer rating? Oh yes, best in the history of the NFL. Better yet, that number speaks volumes as to his talent more than anything.

      Everyone is entitled to their own opinion, however you can’t argue with the numbers. You don’t have to like him, but he is the best in the NFL and that 122.5 says so.
