In the past few years, no NFL player has been more polarizing than Aaron Rodgers. This has caused great debate amongst analysts of the NFL especially on major television networks. There is no question where FS1’s Skip and Shannon Undisputed Shannon Sharpe stands on Rodgers. In a recent segment, Shannon Sharpe used obscene language to describe Aaron Rodgers.
Sharpe’s Strong Opinion
Shannon Sharpe calls Aaron Rodgers a “prick” and a “horrible person” because he didn’t get the vaccine.

After Aaron Rodgers went on Joe Rogan’s podcast and talked more about his decision not to get the Covid vaccine, it renewed debate on Aaron Rodgers. Shannon Sharpe didn’t hold back on Aaron Rodgers. He called Rodgers a “prick” and a “horrible person”. Sharpe went on to say that he thought Rodgers brought up the topic again to rub it in the face of the NFL. It is clear that Sharpe does not care for how Rodgers has handled the situation.
Was This Warranted?
This is strong language. To call someone a horrible person and a prick for not choosing to get a vaccine is a statement. Keep in mind that Sharpe is paid to make outlandish statements. Watch Undisputed on any given day and you will find countless overreactions and misguided takes. However, this goes a step too far. Rodgers did put himself in this situation by intentionally misleading the media. However, the response that players were getting for choosing to be unvaccinated was so strong that it was a choice to be shunned or misdirect. Whatever you feel about the situation, I don’t think it warrants Shannon Sharpe calling Aaron Rodgers a prick.
This Probably Won’t Be The Last Take About Rodgers
Rodgers is a little bit of an odd duck. He opened up about using psychedelic drugs on a trip to Peru and has had some quirky interactions with media members. Shannon Sharpe’s job is to provide hot takes. The point is for something to go viral and get people talking. It’s a match made in heaven. I’m sure that Rodgers will provide many hot takes for talking heads this season.
After the dust settles, all this amounts to is one person on television blowing hot air. I doubt that the opinion of Shannon Sharpe is one that Aaron Rodgers is very concerned with. However, it will be interesting to see whether Rodgers ever mentions a Sharpe take throughout the season.

Wonder why people feel they need to mislead people about practicing their constitutional right to refuse medications? Oh, that’s right, because of close minded, judgemental priks like Shannon..
Skip and Shannon are both loud mouth morons. Unvaxxed here no covid, triple vaxxed wife- covid twice. Shut up. Vax was/is B.S. These idiots just like their own voices. Stop watching these shows, lower the ratings, get them off the air.
It has gone way too far. Sports analyst’s/personalities have turned into gossip queen’s and social media trolls, each one trying to 1up the other. Whether it’s skip or Shannon or some jackass on ESPN, they have no shame or dignity or brains for that matter. Yet they all think they’re so damn clever and edgy. Makes me sick. My parents and sisters are all vaccinated and have tested positive for COVID multiple times each. While myself being the only unvaccinated one, haven’t so much as coughed in like 2 years. I’m not sure what exactly this says, but I know the government isn’t looking out for my best interest, that’s for damn sure.
Shannon Sharpe has and always had a big mouth. He was never as good as his brother so he has this inferiority complex. Just another prick analyst who is jealous of Rodgers’ success.
Just because Rogers is a NFL player doesn’t mean that he is not entitled to his constitutional rights so I think Skip and Shannon should shut up. Period
Sharpe is a left wing all the way said he would pay 22.00 dollars a gallon for gas to not have Trump back in office he brings politics in to sports woke agenda.
Damn, so if you don’t get the vaccine you’re a horrible person….hmmmmmmm🤔….well, Fuq it … horrible person I will be ….this place is so contradictory….and this place I mean the US….. first you teach your kids to be a leader not a follower….then you scream about the freedoms of choices in the land of the free,……the you mandate choices into demands and penalize those for not complying…then you manipulate and chatize folks by saying, I respect if you don’t take the vaccine, but why be so selfish in keeping everybody on the team safe…. Shannon did it to Rodgers & kyrie….stop pushing your personal agenda and bias onto other people’s personal right
Skip Clueless and Shannon Not Too Sharpe. A perfect match
