Shannon Sharpe is another NFL legend who doesn’t have much respect for Rodgers. He doesn’t appreciate the way the talented quarterback blames everybody else for on-field problems. The former Denver icon called out Rodgers after he acted selfishly in 2022. He didn’t hold back with his rebukes because he felt somebody had to say it.
Sharpe said: “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.” Nobody can deny that Rodgers doesn’t whine or moan when things aren’t going his way (via Sportskeeda).
Most elite athletes talk to their agents or managers when they’re considering their future. However, Rodgers has a different perspective because he goes on darkness retreats. We’re not sure if this is the most productive way to fix things but Rodgers is an interesting cat. Many of his teammates allegedly can’t believe that this is how he handles business.
Rodgers told Pat McAfee (via ESPN): “That’s why it’s going to be important to get through this week and to take my isolation retreat and just to be able to contemplate all things my future and then be able to make a decision that I think is best for me moving forward and in the highest interest of my happiness and then move forward.”
There are many times when Rodgers acted selfishly but the worst affect his teammates. One unnamed former NFL GM told Fansided that the quarterback’s teammates dislike him because of his antics. The explosive account attracted lots of attention because of Rodgers’ profile. Unfortunately, it was also easy to believe that it was true.
The former GM said: “The guy’s selfish. His teammates don’t like him and his 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.” This is a damning indictment of Rodgers’ character but it seems to be accurate.
