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.”
