Thursday on 2 Pros and a Cup of Joe, Aaron Rodgers is getting heat for seemingly misleading the media on his vaccination status, but Jonas Knox, Brady Quinn and LaVar Arrington explain why the NFLPA deserves more blame for this media backlash.

Jonas Knox: "Why should the media be asking these guys if they're vaccinated or not? … When does the NFLPA step up and start saying this isn't the greatest idea in the world. I feel like they butchered this from the beginning and all of a sudden everybody else felt like they had the right to ask all these questions every timeout."
Brady Quinn: "The PA allowed this all to happen because they didn't think far enough ahead of the potential cause and effect of this happening with the policies they put in place."
LaVar Arrington: "You know what is fact? You are getting lied to consistently everyday. So now you want to stop, as the media, and say this lying particular is the one that truly offends me. Let's put it in perspective. Let's reel it back."
Jonas Knox: "A lot of people are pissed off because they feel like Aaron Rodgers lied. No, not really. You just didn't catch on."
