18. Work Ethic
Brady’s work ethic is unquestionable. A video emerged in 2020 of the quarterback furiously chastising his teammate. They enraged him because they weren’t performing up to his high standards. To show such dedication at the age of 43 was impressive. A few months later, there were questions about Rodgers’ commitment to the NFL. This came immediately after he won the MVP award.
His former teammate Jermichael Finley questioned Rodgers’s work ethic. “Actually, you can see it right through his helmet,” he told ESPN after a defeat (via Fansided). “The eyes and the face tell everything as a personality. And, I just don’t see that NFL hunger and just the hunger to go win another championship.” This came after one of the most unsettled periods of Rodgers’ career.
