A former Packers star called out quarterback Aaron Rodgers before Week 8
The Green Bay Packers enter the Week 8 primetime showdown at Buffalo at 3-4 overall and losers of three-straight games. Aaron Rodgers and the offense is really struggling and the past week has been filled with storylines after the quarterback’s comments on the Pat McAfee show.
After Aaron Rodgers pointed the finger and had criticism towards his teammates, many criticized the quarterback. And now a former teammate is calling him out just a few days later.
On the Fox Sports NFL pregame show, former Packers defensive back Charles Woodson had some criticism of his own for Rodgers. Woodson point-blank said that Aaron Rodgers should stop the finger-pointing.
“Well, first of all – gotta stop pointing the finger and I’m talking to the leader of this team right now, Aaron Rodgers. ” Woodson said via Kyle Malzhan.

Woodson is right. Aaron Rodgers did point the finger to his teammates suggesting that some be benched if they can’t produce and are messing up. But what about the quarterback himself?
It’s been a rollercoaster with Rodgers over the past year. That includes his potential retirement drama over the Summer before signing a new extension. Sure, players haven’t played up to standards but that includes Rodgers too. As a leader, he needs to elevate everyone around him.
And if he doesn’t? Things are going to get even uglier for Aaron Rodgers and the Packers. That could start tonight wth the matchup in Buffalo and then snowball into the rest of the season.
Let’s hope that doesn’t happen and the team can find a way to stack some wins.
