Sir Aaron Rodgers. If he were British then that would be a possibility, but he’s not. Still, teammates are calling the Green Bay Packers quarterback “sir.”
Rookie running back Eddie Lacy is apparently among those star struck by the $110 million man.
“My first impression was more of a fan’s reaction,” Lacy told USA TODAY Sports. “I’m in the huddle with him, and I’m thinking, ‘This is Aaron Rodgers.'”
Rodgers, as you might expect, isn’t so keen on the designation.
“That gives you a good perspective on how things can change,” Rodgers said. “Getting called ‘sir’ by some of these young guys is kind of silly, too. I’m not even 30 yet. Let’s relax on the ‘sir’ part, OK? But I appreciate the respect.”
And then you know where this story goes.
Look how different things are for Rodgers now! He slid down to the bottom of the first round in 2005! Oh how much has changed! Same old tired fucking story that will be recycled by lazy-ass journalists until Rodgers dies.
Hell, if Lacy becomes a top-flight running back, these same asshats will be writing about how he slipped to the second round over and over again.
But for now, they’ll just write about how he calls Rodgers ‘sir.’
Did someone who just wrote a column about rookies calling the quarterback sir just call other journalists lazy?
This isn’t some professional sports site, if you haven’t noticed, basically every article is this guy’s opinion. He’s not trying to pretend as though he’s an all-knowing sports enthusiast like every NFL Network and ESPN anchor or contributor does. Can’t we fans just say what’s on our mind without being accused to being unprofessional? Golly…
Add that to the list of things Brent never had happen to him while he played..
som’bitches better be calling him sir
and telling them I need a diablo sandwich, a Dr. Pepper, and make it quick, I’m in a god-damn hurry.
Sir Aaron Rodgers, I have a good feeling about the ’13 season. Super Bowl or bust! GB all damn day.
Not only yeah, but hell yeah!
Who’s going to take the writing credit for penning this biopic?
The title: “Sir Rodgers” An American tale of triumph overcoming adversity ???
Knowing you Vijay, I’m guessing it’ll be you, so long as the movie is a success.
