The Green Bay Packers may be going through one of the roughest times in recent memory. Not only are the Packers suffering loss after loss, but there seems to be a disconnect in the locker room. Aaron Rodgers appeared on the Pat McAfee Show today and had some things to say about the current state of the Packers. He also called out specific play by certain teammates. All in all, it felt like an “it’s not my fault” type of interview. Which rubbed some people the wrong way.
Aaron Rodgers Ripped On Social Media
Aaron Rodgers had a pretty telling comment on The Pat McAfee show today about what the team needs to do to get better. Zach Kruse reported:
Aaron Rodgers: “Guys who are making too many mistakes, shouldn’t be playing. Gotta start cutting some reps. Maybe guys who aren’t playing, maybe give them a chance.”
Twitter had a lengthy and detailed reaction to these types of comments. Most of the comments were about how Aaron Rodgers himself could play better. However, that is not where it stopped. Aaron Rodgers seemingly doubled down on his comment by praising his own game.
Asked by @PatMcAfeeShow about his own performace, Rodgers said that QB coach Tom Clements gave Rodgers his highest single-game grade yet this season in Sunday's loss against the Commanders.

Aaron Rodgers choosing to let the public know that his own QB coach graded his game as the highest of the season… was a choice. Especially given the fact that it directly followed comments regarding his teammates needing to play better. These were some of the responses that were targeted at Aaron Rodgers on Twitter:
"Yes, we're 3-4 and just lost to the Holy Trinity of Daniel Jones, Zach Wilson and Taylor Heinicke. But hey, I'm playing fantastic ball!" https://t.co/0Ao6rEzC7X

The one time Aaron Rodgers is apparently unwilling to do independent research to reach his own conclusion. https://t.co/Pc8aWpGNSG

Clearly fans didn’t take lightly to Rodgers’ seemingly “it’s not my fault” quote. Going forward I hope this team rallies together.
