Boy, we’re not sure how we missed this, except that it’s a clip featuring our all-time least favorite player, A.J. Hawk, and possibly our all-time least favorite hot taker not named Skip or Steven, Colin Cowherd. So yeah, that’s exactly why we missed it.
A.J. Hawk and Colin Cowherd in one place? It must have been a shitnado of missed tackles, pile jumping and hot air.
But we’ve seen it now and we can’t unsee it, so we might as well pass it along to you.
Hawk was on Cowherd’s show last week. Cowherd is a known critic of Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers, Hawk’s former teammate. A lot of the time, Cowherd’s criticisms of Rodgers are not unfounded. They are, however, unpopular.
People view Rodgers through rose colored glasses. At least, many of them do. So any criticism of Rodgers is just wrong, even when it isn’t.
Here we have Cowherd asking Hawk about Rodgers’ leadership and Hawk defending him vehemently.
Watch it if you dare.
I would tend to believe the guy that played with him.
Aaron Rodgers can come across as cocky sometimes, but there’s a significant difference between being competitive, and being Arrogant. Rodgers does what he does purely from a standpoint of making sure he and the rest of his team play better, even if a few are very bothered by it. He didn’t keep his doubter letters because he has insecurity issues, he used them to his advantage to motivate himself.
But also, I’ve always felt that GB is simply run far differently than a traditional sports team is. When Tom Brady is running the show, he’s going to be the guy that pushes his teammates, gets fired up, demonstrates by example, and acts like a leader. Rodgers would probably do the same, but he’s in a locker room that works more like a family than a team. I think of Rodgers as more like the big brother rather than the father figure. Hope that makes sense.
Nobody’s perfect, everyone has some type of flaw and warrants criticism for something. But people like Skip and Colin are absolute clowns when it comes to this. Rodgers may be the best QB to ever play, he truly is damn near flawless, there’s no one who’s earned the respect of careful criticism as he has.
I would say that in this interview AJ Hawk demonstrated that he was, and is, a great team mate and friend. Craig Flemmings, on the other hand……………..
AJ Hawk for your least favorite player ever seems a little over the top. He was a good soldier.
