Aaron Rodgers is an overly-sensistive tit. That has long been established and it’s obviously never going to change.
So there was Rodgers yesterday, talking about all the critics again, saying it doesn’t bother him. Of course, you sure do pay A LOT of attention to what people are saying about you for a guy who isn’t bothered by what people are saying about you, Aaron.
“I think as far as the criticism goes, I think that’s where some of the comedy comes in to me,” Rodgers said. “You have to find humor in it. Because I get criticized for holding the ball too long and not taking risks, right? So then there’s the risk vs. interception. Then I fake a spike and throw it to Davante and I get criticized for taking risks. So that’s why I said earlier that critics are always going to win as far as getting their criticism out there, because they can make up new things to criticize whenever they want and use stats or feelings or whatever to fit the specific thing they are criticizing. I’m going to play the way I play. It’s been pretty successful around here. I’m going to hold onto the ball when I feel like I can, and get out when I feel like I can as well. But I don’t worry too much about the critics. It’s talking out of both sides of their mouth. And that’s why the stuff doesn’t bother me.”
I mean, this is a perfect example of Aaron getting all defensive, as he is wont to do. First of all, you do hold the ball too fucking long sometimes. Just admit it already and then we’ll move on. Or, stop holding the ball so damn long.
It’s one of the few faults in your game. But don’t take that to heart and correct it, whatever you do! Just get all pouty about it!
As far as taking risks goes, who’s criticizing Rodgers for not taking risks? I think he made that up just so he could pretend to be butt hurt.
“I’ll show you, imaginary critic!”
And as far as criticizing the fake spike play, Rodgers can only be talking about Skip Bayless, who is as useless as the piece of toilet paper I used to wipe my ass this morning. Why even bother giving an credence to that moron?
Because that’s what Aaron Rodgers does. Throws touchdown passes and gets bent out of shape about any sort of criticism of his game.
That toilet paper was actually useful whereas skip is just a piece of shit. Are you missing the gunslinger days? You can go to Chicago if you want that shit, just not the post season.
Gotta stay away from that cheap toilet paper. Once it tears while in action, well you might as well be using Skip Bayless to wipe your ass.
I find it interesting that he and Cowherd can still get an argument together about trashing Rodgers. Years ago it was funny because you could tell Aaron was extremely skilled and the big time winning was just around the corner. Now that everything has been accomplished, the criticism, even after such an uplifting game, is so obviously staged.
Aaron needs to learn that you can’t satisfy some of the people… so trying to speak to stupidity is a waste of time. He is getting ‘er done even with a questionable O line…so now let’s keep concentrating on the real piece of crap Brad Jones. Can we get a petition or something and get someone else…anyone else has to do a better job!
Brad Jones new nickname = Canada. That’s where he should be playing football.
Rodgers holding the ball too long is actually an asset. That’s because his judgement is so good. You don’t throw 15 TDs and 1 INT by being a reckless gunslinger. You pick your battles and elevate the risk of what you do based upon the situation. I’ll take the occasional frustrating sack over the occasional “chuck it up for grabs” like just about every other quarterback in the league.
I think Rodgers does this pretty damn perfectly.
Now you’ve criticized “the man”? Wow. I didn’t think even you’d go that low. There is only one explanation. Montey is really a Vikings fan troll. It makes sense, right? All he does is talk trash about the Vikings because he wants us to THINK he’s really a Packer fan. But deep down he’s got a man crush on Teddy Bridgewater. I bet Montey dreams of Bridgewater rubbing Hormel chili all over his body while Adrian Peterson slaps his ass with a switch. SKOL!!
every savant is overly critical of critics…being critical is a release from having being a non critical nice guy all the time…name another person who you want running the show for Buffoon…changing dumb plays into winning plays…yah, the fake time spike throw could have been the end of the game then he really would of been critical of the critics but luck was on our side..the dumb short throw to Cobb could of been the end too but good shit happens sometimes…i would be more worried about our offensive offensive line and Lacy…
Also, dumb fans who think Hawk and Jones aren’t playing good are dumb fans…Big Bartender says they grade out well…who else would you want at ILB?? Keep your list to under 100…
This is like complaining about Cindy Crawford’s mole.
Maybe Aaron is the Justin Verlander of the Packers.
I’ll take him any day over his predecessor….
Pouty, Bad TV ads, distracting movie star girlfriend and all…….
A little criticism helps clear the mind sometimes…
I’m convinced that the overly-sensitive part of him is also what makes him great
When Aaron holds on to the ball too long, it becomes 2nd (or 3rd) and long. When he should have held on to the ball, Brett would chuck it with his bionic arm into the hands of a defender, their ball, 1st and 10. I’ll take my chances (and the ball) with Aaron.
He can hold it, tuck it, or throw it….as long as he has the ball, I’ll live with the outcome. Plus I’m not so sure his holding the ball so much lately isnt a result of scheme. Before we sent out everybody….but we’re in a ton of max protect these days with Quarless & the RB both staying in to block….whereas Finley was in every pattern & the RBs were often….so it makes sense he’d hold it longer sometimes with less options to throw to. Its a non issue to me because of his feet. His “holding the ball” also turns into “extending the play.” And I’ll live with the former in order to keep the latter ALL DAY!
As long as 12 keeps doing what he’s doing, I don’t care if he cries himself to sleep every night with a tub of ice cream and the Notebook.
I am with Carlos. #12 is as good as ever. He needs to keep doing what he is doing. Go Pack Go!!
I liked the spike play. Need to be aggressive. pro act instead of react.
