Under The Bus
Rodgers is arguably the most high-profile active NFL player right now. The four-time MVP is the last of a golden generation including Tom Brady and Drew Brees. But he has no patience for underperforming teammates. He threw his receivers under the bus in 2022 and attracted criticism for not encouraging them.
“The young guys, especially young receivers, we’ve got to be way more consistent,” Rodgers said (via ESPN). “A lot of drops, a lot of bad route decisions, running the wrong route. We’ve got to get better in that area.” Analysts believed that this would crush their confidence and that he was a bad leader.
