Colin Cowherd: “Packers fans are a very strange group. if you ever criticize Aaron Rodgers, Aaron is always the ‘victim’ and we’re all just picking on Aaron. Nobody ever picks on Drew Brees or Tom Brady, Aaron is the only quarterback in the league who everybody is just picking on!! Whoever criticizes Aaron is who the Packer fans attack. His brother ciritized Aaron and you called him a ‘loser’. His dad criticized Aaron and you said ‘he’s just sponging off him!’…‘Greg Jennings is bitter!’… It’s always blame the messenger. Why doesn’t this criticism happen to other quarterbacks? Are we just picking on Aaron? Everybody seems to like Russell Wilson, Tom Brady, Matt Ryan, Jared Goff, and Drew Brees. It’s like you think we’re making stuff up with Baker Mayfield, or Baker just has lousy judgement. Do you think we’re making stuff up about Aaron or is he passive-aggressive, prickly, difficult to get along with, and has a big ego? Everybody likes Green Bay, and no one picked on Favre all the time. Certain people wanna play the victim and Packers fans always blame the messenger… I don’t think people are victims, I think it’s their reputation over the course of 5-10-15-20+ years.” (Full Video Above)
Listen to Colin Cowherd discuss a recent article in The Athletic, that reported that the Green Bay Packers franchise was growing wary of Aaron Rodgers’ fragmented relationship with management, and wanted to draft Utah State quarterback Jordan Love as a means of leverage in case Rodgers continues to passive-aggressively rebel against the coaching staff.
Colin has noticed that Packers fans are now attacking the writer of the piece, and saying that it’s just another attempt by the media to take shots at one of the greatest quarterbacks ever.
Colin says Rodgers has earned that discord, and says these reports every year of Rodgers’ stubbornness to conform aren’t just made up stories, and that there is much authenticity to them.
Check out the video above as Colin details why the Green Bay fans need to stop defending Rodgers, and realize his most notable personality critiques are all true.
