Jordan Rodgers is Aaron Rodgers’ little brother. He played briefly in the league, but is probably now more notable as the non-Packer who appeared with the Green Bay Packers in Pitch Perfect 2.
And that’s quite a distinction.
Like just about everyone who is or was once associated with football, Jordan Rodgers is in San Francisco for Super Bowl week. He talked to NESN, in what can only be described as an awkward interview. Among their stupid questions was what Jordan thinks of Olivia Munn.
“She’s been great. Obviously, there’s been a lot of stuff about, ‘Oh, he’s playing bad. It’s because he has a girlfriend now.’ He’s playing good it’s because of his girlfriend. He’s playing bad it’s because of his girlfriend. Fans are going to do that,” Rodgers said.
“It’s a tough game. You have good seasons. You have bad seasons. They were injury-riddled this year. I think he made the best of what he could.”
Interestingly, NESN just busted out part of that quote. This part right here.
“He’s playing good it’s because of his girlfriend. He’s playing bad it’s because of his girlfriend.”
Alone, that suggests the younger Rodgers is saying Aaron played badly because of Olivia (which is something Rob Demovsky suggested and was berated for). If you look at it in context, he’s not saying that at all.
However, what he does say is that Aaron had a bad season in 2015. You know we have no argument there, but we didn’t expect his brother to admit that.
Now, if you are looking for Olivia-related acrimony in the Rodgers family, we’ve heard rumors that you should look toward Aaron’s older brother Luke. It has been suggested to us that Luke has basically been removed from Aaron’s life because he doesn’t get along with Olivia.
Again, that’s just through-the-grapevine stuff, so take it for what it’s worth.
Here’s the full interview.
