Jordan Rodgers, brother of Aaron, Bachelorette winner and airer of family drama is also a sports talking head. He parlayed his notoriety into a college football gig on ESPN. The leader also decided to give Jordan a radio show, which started airing this week.
The youngest Rodgers boy decided to kick things off with a bang — with some questionable opinions on football — and he got raked for it.
First, here’s the statement.
"I'd rather have Kirk Cousins than Cam Newton."
I mean, I don’t know. There are things I don’t like about both of those quarterbacks, but Cam Newton does have an MVP to his name and I frickin’ doubt Kirk Cousins is ever going to sniff one of those.
I’ll take Aaron Rodgers. How about that?
Of course, Aaron wasn’t part of this conversation.
Internet people jumped all over JRodge for this statement, of course. JRodge did not back down. Instead, he fired back.
Cousins led NFL in pass yds on deep throws + 2nd in TDs off deep throws (11)….so…lot of risk and reward in DC. Oh + comp % is never moot https://t.co/B56bchkwXm
I think my favorite part of those comments is the assertion that Cam Newton is a dummy — “Comes down to mental capacity, cam/panthers run a cfb offense.”
Rodgers is suggesting the Panthers run a college offense. I don’t know the answer, but maybe that’s why they sucked donkey in 2016 after their Super Bowl run the year prior — defenses figured out how to stop their supposedly simplistic offense.
Nonetheless, it looks like we’ve got the next Skip Bayless on our hands here. HOT TAKES FOR ALL!
I really want to hear Jordan talk about Aaron’s game sometime.
