Monday on 2 Pros and a Cup of Joe, Jonas Knox, Brady Quinn and LaVar Arrington call out the critics who blame Aaron Rodgers for the loss vs the Niners and who highlight his controversial stances off the field, instead of looking at what really led to the Packers loss in the Divisional Round.

Jonas Knox: "Bottom line is this, the Packers lost that game on Saturday night because their special teams unit had a historically bad performance in a big time game, maybe the worst in the history of the NFL. When points are at a premium in those conditions and your special teams until is directly responsible for -10, blocked field goal, blocked punt that was returned for a touchdown, and even worse, on the Robbie Gould game-winner, you only have 10 guys on the field. The idea that that loss is on Aaron Rodgers, I don't buy it for a second. The offense wasn't great. He wasn't great, but they did enough to win that game. That's 100% on the special teams and anybody attacking or going after Aaron Rodgers is somebody who already has a built in agenda."
