It’s not the first time Greg Jennings has been critical of Green Bay Packers quarterback and former teammate Aaron Rodgers. It might be the most poignant critique, however.
Yes, Rodgers went out and threw for 442 yards and three touchdowns in a loss to the Detroit Lions on Sunday.
That was far from enough. The Packers didn’t put a point on the damn board in the first half. Rodgers fumbled the ball twice. Lost both of those.
It’s hard to say Rodgers played like shit, but yeah… Rodgers, for all intents and purposes, played like shit. It’s kind of like he didn’t want to be there. That’s all I can really say about it.
It’s hard to put your finger on one thing. The turnovers, yes. But it was kind of like, “Ah, shit, I have to go play with a bunch of rookies? Fuck that!”
I kept yelling it during the game. Throw the goddam ball!
Rodgers just couldn’t pull the trigger though. Can’t trust a rookie!
It’s a goddam miracle that Calvin Ridley has six touchdowns for the Atlanta Falcons. Since he’s not to be trusted and all.
But enough of me blathering on about Rodgers’ faults. Let’s go to a guy who played with him.
"What stood out was his body language, his demeanor, his lack of involvement with the guys during the game. He had a look on him like he was disgusted, but it was kind of like the 'Here We Go Again'."@GregJennings on Aaron Rodgers and the Packers pic.twitter.com/5Lt8FuMv9j
