o_O goes along with what I said here ...

Rob Reischel said:
Green Bay - Their season had been done approximately 14 hours.

Aaron Rodgers, one of the leaders of the Green Bay Packers, sat alone at his locker, staring aimlessly around the room. Rodgers was asked if he'd talk about the season that just ended.

"Nope," Rodgers said.

Instead, Rodgers began eavesdropping on an interview linebacker Desmond Bishop was conducting.

After each question, Rodgers made a snide remark about the queries loud enough for anyone within earshot to hear.

"I can't believe they'd ask that," Rodgers said.

"Nice question," he said another time.

Finally, doing his best Drew Rosenhaus, Rodgers bellowed, "Next question."

Instead of preparing for the NFC Championship Game, Rodgers was now critiquing reporters.

It's this type of leadership that had some taking shots at the 2011 most valuable player this season.

I have no idea if Aaron Rodgers is a great leader. I'm not in the locker room, but I do know that Green Bay is probably letting Greg Jennings walk this off-season and Jermichael Finley may join him.

Just sayin'

I hope Packernation doesn't make some kind of demigod out of Rodgers. He is a human being with a whole gammit of emotions he has to bottle up in a politically correct world. If I were as good as Rodgers and my receivers dropped well placed balls, or Olineman and running backs blew blocking assignments - I'd show a lot more emotion than he ever does. Our GM and coaches have some work to do to shore up our weaknesses - leadership questions need to start there.

Awww, did some poor reporter, and I use that term loosely, get their panties in a bunch. We've all heard these interviews week in and week out, there is no creativity in any of the questions. I can just imagine what it is like for the Players, and espicially for QB's in this league. Answer the same basic questions over and over and over, with the "reporters" just waiting of a non-pc answer so they can create a headline.

Remember it wasn't to long removed of Rodgers small criticism of McCarthy play call on the punt return at Detroit. Rodgers gives an honest answer, and the media tries to blow it into there being a problem between McCarthy and Rodgers when there is nothing.

I like to think we're all smarter having been through the Brett Favre Era.

Good answer, though I don't think it is relevant to this exact article. What the article claims Rodgers did is quite different than giving an honest, non-pc answer to a question.

I think it is definately relevant. Rodgers had to deal with these same reporters, and today, they are not nearly the reporters of old. Over and over, the same uncreative questions, or jumping on any little thing, so perhaps out of frustration from the loss, he gave the reporters a taste of what they do weekly. It sounded like a way to criticize them, like they criticize others.

This being linked to leadership is asine. The rest of the team is probably looking at themselves thinking, I wish I would have said something like that.

Why did this article or incident (if we're to call it that) take a week in a half to publish?

It took place after the divisional round. That was quite a bit ago in the internet age. Something doesn’t smell right here.

Plus, the article cites Greg Jennings’ sister and Jermichael Finley’s agent. Those are great sources for defending your topic.[sarcasm]

Shannon Sharpe’s quote is a joke. He says what he thinks, but gives no source. You have an opinion, plus two bad sources.

Aaron Rodgers is not above criticism. If what the writer suggests happened, then what Rodgers did was unprofessional. It was also immature.

I’d like to hear Rodgers’ retort, though. I’d also like to know why this took a week in a half to become public.

As I said, something doesn’t smell right here.

He did take a hit.

He has grown a reputation for being Whiney and carrying a "chip"

I am still a fan, but his emotional side is coming through.

Skipping the Probowl was very Tom Brady-esc.
