Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers told Peter King he feels like his team is America’s team. That has been the moniker adopted by the Dallas Cowboys for years, of course.
This was the full comment.
“This is one of the top positions in all of sports,” Rodgers said. “We feel like we’re America’ Team. Other teams have taken that mantra from time-to-time. But we’re just a blue-collar city with a team that’s been around for 100 years and have been part of some incredible NFL history.”
Here’s the clip of Rodgers.

Naturally, this created quite the uproar among the hot takers.
Aaron Rodgers just told NBC: "We feel like we're America's Team." Nice try. America's Team is the world's most valuable team and its QB has outplayed you all 3 times you've met, Aaron. HOW BOUT THEM COWBOYS. How bout that Dak Prescott.
