Just another Tumultuous Tuesday with Aaron Rodgers.
The quarterback made his weekly appearance on The Pat McAfee Show on Tuesday.
On his chosen, uninterrupted platform, Rodgers suggested taking reps away from certain teammates who continue to make mental mistakes.
While it seems calloused, that’s a fair enough concept.
If you show you can’t perform, you shouldn’t play.
What about you, though, Aaron? How did you perform against Washington?
Credit to McAfee for asking the question, giving Rodgers an opportunity to shoulder some of the blame.
Instead of just saying, “yes, I haven’t been good enough,” Rodgers joked about quarterbacks coach Tom Clements giving him his highest grade of the season.
He was pretty clearly poking fun at himself, but again, opened the door for people to misinterpret, which of course, has happened.
The time for joking is over. It’s time to be a leader.
Rodgers certainly isn’t the entire problem, but he’s part of it.
Say that. Just say it. It starts with me.
Shoulder the blame, shield your teammates, and play better.
