Aaron Rodgers has been facing plenty of scrutiny during the first half of the 2022 NFL season. Many are starting to question his leadership, believing he is breaking his teammates down more than he is lifting them up. NFL legend and Hall of Famer Michael Irvin believes there is some sort of conspiracy theory going on in Green Bay.
Michael Irvin rushes to defend Aaron Rodgers
During ESPN’s show ‘First Take’ Irvin blasted the Green Bay Packers organization claiming they are setting up Aaron Rodgers for failure. Here’s what Irvin had to say:
“I’m starting to believe there’s something here. “You go back-to-back MVPs … this dude went back-to-back MVPs and you take away his best target. You’re playing a guy like Josh Allen, [the Bills are] all in on Josh Allen They went and got him, players. They went and got him Stefon Diggs and then Gabe Davis. I don’t see [the Packers] doing this for Aaron Rodgers.”
Michael Irvin continued to explain himself by saying; “I’m starting to think some kind of conspiracy theory is going on here. … He’s coming off of back-to-back MVPs. How are we going to minimize a back-to-back MVP [winner]? It’s something personal going on in Green Bay.”
“I’m just saying, there’s no way you get this guy and you put him in that situation. … I don’t know how they came into this season thinking that they got the back-to-back MVP and what they gave him is good enough,” Irvin concluded.
What do you think? Are the Packers trying to force Aaron Rodgers out of Green Bay?
"[Aaron Rodgers] is coming off a back-to-back MVP! How are we going to minimize a back-to-back MVP? It's something personal going on in Green Bay. … I need to be on that front office for the way [the Packers] have let this man down."— First Take (@FirstTake) October 31, 2022
