That one hurt to read as a fan... because as much as you want to pound your chest and tell all the haters they are wrong... they aren't. That's what happened, it's clear to everyone.

I like what Ryan Grant had to say... Rodgers just wants to play football, and needs leaders around him so he doesn't have to. It's counter-intuitive to what we expect of a QB, to be the leader.

McCarthy was overrated from the jump, but when so many different ex-teammates are willing to speak out against Rodgers, it does concern me that his ego is going to be a problem going forward. We shall see if a year 1 coach can change the dynamic, but color me skeptical.

From the outside looking in, this isn't McCarthy's fault or Rodgers fault or the front office's fault alone.

They all deserve blame. Egos getting in the way everywhere. Green Bay should have more rings with Rodgers there. Have to hope age hasn't caught up to him and that he's able to accept coaching. Otherwise it's gonna be more of the same from the last few years.

I blame Danica. Every time she is involved something gets wrecked.

To be fair, only two people spoke out. Greg Jennings and Jermichael Finley.

Greg Jennings always was as much as a diva as Antonio Brown, people forget. And then he was utterly mediocre when he moved on to other teams.


Everyone will tell their story through the lens of their own motivations.


The truth lies somewhere in the middle, likely. Ryan Grant is probably the more truthful. Aaron Rodgers is a GOAT player, not a leader like Manning or Brady.

I don't think Greg Jennings is a diva, he just holds grudges like he claims Rodgers does. He seemed to be a great guy until he didn't get resigned. He's just really salty about it to this day.

Grant's comments made a lot of sense, still critical, but seemed honest.

Jennings and Finley were willing to go on record, but there are other reports from unnamed sources:

https://www.cbssports.com/nfl/news/ex-t ... rn-leader/

And other ex-teamates, not exactly bashing him, but not singing his praises, either:

https://www.mercurynews.com/2019/02/08/ ... teammates/

My point is, can you find articles like this about Brady or Manning? Those guys have rivals that talk more highly of them than some of Rodgers ex-teammates.

I think Rodgers is a phenomenal talent and I would not want anyone else quarterbacking the Packers at this point, but he seems like he is probably a douche-bag in his personal (and professional) life. Hopefully it doesn't continue to affect the team going forward if it was a factor.
