Terry Bradshaw rips Packers QB Aaron Rodgers for ongoing saga
Hall of Fame quarterback and current FOX NFL analyst Terry Bradshaw did not hold back when asked about his feelings regarding the latest Aaron Rodgers drama with the Green Bay Packers.
The Green Bay Packers quarterback became a trending topic Thursday when it was reported he was dismayed with the organization and weighing not returning to the team.
Bradshaw said Monday he felt Rodgers is being insecure during an interview on WFAN’s Moose and Maggie Show. The former Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback leaned on past experience when suggesting the Packers QB is being overly dramatic:
“Him being that upset shows me how weak he is,” Bradshaw said, via Audacy. “Who the hell cares who you draft? He’s a three-time MVP in the league and he’s worried about this guy they drafted last year at No. 1?
“…And for him to be upset, my god, I don’t understand that. Pittsburgh drafted Mark Malone No. 1, Cliff Stoudt in the third or fourth round – I had them coming at me from all angles. I embraced it, because when we went to practice, I wasn’t worried about those guys. They didn’t scare me a bit. So I don’t understand why he’s so upset at Green Bay.”
Bradshaw said it was equally ridiculous for Rodgers to essentially give the Packers an ultimatum regarding general manager Brian Gutekunst after Charles Robinson of Yahoo Sports reported A-Rod could retire if Gutekunst stays on as GM of the Packers.
There has yet to be any indication the Packers will fire Gutekunst, with Green Bay’s GM also repeatedly asserting the team plans on Rodgers being under center in the coming years.
Either way, Bradshaw does not look kindly on the whole situation. In fact, Bradshaw also admonished Seattle Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson for displaying disgruntled behavior earlier this offseason.
Needless to say, Bradshaw’s “old guard” mentality was on full display.
