Is This Donald Driver Criticizing Aaron Rodgers?
We all know that idiot Greg Jennings has something up his butt about his former teammate Aaron Rodgers. Well, Donald Driver was asked about where Jennings comments could be coming from this morning on Mike and Mike.
And Driver, surprisingly, gave what appears to be a somewhat critical answer about how Rodgers didn’t protect his receivers.
“We’ve always said that the quarterback is the one that needs to take the pressure off everyone else. If a guy runs the wrong route, it’s easy for the quarterback to say, ‘Hey, I told him to run that route’ than for the guy to be like, ‘Well, I ran the wrong route,’” Driver said. “Sometimes you ask Aaron to take the pressure off the guys so we won’t look bad, but he didn’t want to do that. He felt like if you did something bad, you do it. But I think that’s the difference. You want that leadership, and I think sometimes you may not feel like you got it. You have to earn that respect at the end of the day, and I think that’s what Greg was probably referring to.”
So Rodgers doesn’t make excuses for guys when they screw up? That seems totally like something a receiver would expect their quarterback to do. Because receivers never screw up, you know?
And certainly not a prima donna like Greg Jennings! I wonder if Christian Ponder will be making excuses for Jennings this year?
Maybe. Maybe that’s why Jennings is already in love with Ponder. Hell, he’s a terrible quarterback, but at least he makes excuses for his receivers!
As for Driver, he went on to say what a swell guy Rodgers is and we’re sure everything is hunky dory, but you kind of have to wonder what’s going on.
Remember, Jermichael Finley’s agent once criticized Rodgers for not being a leader. I wonder where he got that notion from? Maybe from Jermichael? Maybe because Rodgers didn’t make excuses for Jermichael when he screwed up?
It’s probably a good thing Rodgers throws the prettiest ball in the NFL.
