Aaron Rodgers is arguably a great QB. What is not for debate is Aaron Rodgers is a bad teammate.
You can see it in his body language on the field. You can see it when he misses a pass then shakes his head at the wide receiver. Aaron just has a smug arrogance that he can do no wrong. Even when he’s holding his team hostage at the beginning of the season wanting to get paid.
Now the Green Bay QB is proving that theory correct. Earlier this week Rogers bashed his WR corp.
“Guys who are making too many mistakes shouldn’t be playing. Got to start cutting some reps.” Rodgers was quoted.
That did not sit well with a few former NFL players.
Shannon Sharpe on Rodgers
“It’s always somebody else’s fault and it’s always publicly somebody else’s fault. And he is the master of on-field finger pointing in which he throws various receivers under the bus just with his mere body language.”
Greg Jennings Calls Out Aaron Rodgers
Former Packers WR Greg Jennings on Aaron Rodgers’ comments today on McAfee: “You can’t do this.. You can’t sit down on a show and start talking about who should and shouldn’t be playing because of mental errors.”
The backfire of his quote on Twitter made for some funny moments. In fact, Jordan Love was trending at one point.

Aaron will never take accountability for the plays he messes up on. But, don’t you dare run 1 yard off your route, or pinch the sideline when you should be running toward the hash. Those are fireable offenses according to Mr. Rodgers.
None of this is new in the world of A-A-RON. in 2021 an anonymous GM had this to say:
“The guy’s selfish. Teammates don’t like him. Coaches don’t like him. It’s all about Aaron. They all deal with him, because he’s a superstar. He helps guys make money and put food on the table for their kids, and people respect him for that.”

Now, I’m not going to put a ton of stock into anyone who wont put their name to a quote. But, you cant ignore how this is a trending theme with Aaron Rodgers.
Za’Darius Smith also had some harsh feelings about the Packers and Rodgers when he left
“I put my all into it. That’s why I felt the way I did with Green Bay—I gave that s–t my all. I put my blood, sweat … I put my back on the f–king line… And that Year 3, I was treated bad. That’s why I’m here now. So, I can play them twice a year.”
I don’t remember the comedian who said it. But something to the effect of if one person accuses you that could just be one person. But when multiple people accuse you, you might be an A-hole. Aaron Rodgers is for sure an A-Hole.
