His leadership style, that is. Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers faced criticism from two former teammates, Greg Jennings and Donald Driver, this offseason.
All of this somehow added up to Aaron Rodgers isn’t a good leader.
Well, go to hell, says Aaron Rodgers.
“Not at all; I don’t feel like I need to [change my leadership style].”
“I feel like I’m going to continue to lead the way I’ve been leading, and I think guys respond very positively to that and appreciate my style of leadership,” Rodgers said on his radio show. “There’s a reason I’m on the leadership council. There’s a reason I’m voted a captain. I stand by those things, and you learn all the time about leadership. It’s a constant educational process to gather information about your teammates and try and find the best ways to inspire those guys and push those guys and get the most out of them.
“But I’m very confident in the way I lead. I think [coach] Mike [McCarthy] believes in my style of leadership, and I think the guys respond favorably to that. It’s not going to change. I enjoy what I’m doing. I love my job. I love the game of football and put a lot into it and expect to get a lot out of it as well.”
Leadership council? Not really sure what that is, but it obviously means Rodgers is a leader.
Of men! Not boys like Greg Jennings.
