Colin Cowherd: Aaron Rodgers is Not Worth His $33.5 Million a Year Contract

Denver Broncos v Green Bay Packers
Colin Cowherd: “Aaron Rodgers has become Johnny Depp. You keep telling me what a great actor he is, but I don’t go to his movies. You gotta win more. Rodgers the last three years has 13 wins, 13 losses, and a tie. His career record on the road is 40-41. You say ‘But Colin, he was hurt!’ Yea, so was Marcus Mariota, and the last three years he has a higher winning percentage than Rodgers. Win more games, Chief. I’m tired of the condescending, I’m tired of the difficult to coach, and I’m tired of the commercials. When it comes to close wins, games decided by a field goal or less, Russell Wilson is 18-12-1. Aaron Rodgers, 10-19-1. Talent doesn’t pay the bills, winning does. Johnny Depp is pretty good as a pirate and Aaron is pretty good at Lambeau. I need more than that at $35 million a year. Everybody said ‘how do you justify Russell Wilson's contract. I watched last night and that was justifiable. Here’s what I wont pay for: 40-41 on the road, bad in close games, hurt a lot, and tough to coach. THAT I don’t want to pay for. I’m done with the excuses, you’ve got a real defense.” (Full video at Bottom of Page)

Listen to Colin Cowherd explain why he’s down on Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers after hearing a press conference recently where Cowboys head coach Jason Garrett raved how historically talented Rodgers is leading up to the Week 5 Green Bay vs. Dallas game.

Colin says he can’t seem to grasp Rodgers being the third highest paid quarterback in the NFL behind Russell Wilson and Ben Roethlisberger when he’s just 13-13-1 in his last 27 games, 40-41 on the road for his career, and a guy who carries around the baggage of being hard to coach, and extremely delicate emotionally.

Colin says Rodgers may have the ‘talent’, but says ‘talent’ isn't winning Super Bowls for him anymore, as Rodgers has strangely only won a single Super Bowl at age 34, despite many around the sport saying he’s the most gifted quarterback of all time.

Check out the video below as Colin says it’s time to win more Aaron, because we’re starting to think you’re not worth nearly $35 million a year.
