A couple of weeks ago Rodgers was an egoistic dck if I remember correct.


What are you even talking about?


That's not my opinion, let's make that clear first, nor was it ever.

I recall him saying something in training camp about Brett, and it offended alot of Packer fans who labelled him as self-centered and what not really fast.

Now these comments are a bit different obviously, but it does seem to go the same way. Condemming him on one interview.

EDIT : Typo's


Oh, the "get on board or keep your mouths shut" comment. I think most fans took that for what it was: a dumb comment by a guy who was getting a little frustrated with the situation. Some fans even liked the comment. It didn't have too much of a negative effect on Rodgers, because he had already established himself as a guy who had done and said all the right things over the past couple years. And he immediately clarified afterwards that he loves the fans and did not mean to insult them.


And you truly believe what the media says all the time? As we have come to learn sometimes the media blows things up on purpose ( this is about rodgers) Call pr and ask, might give you a whole new out look on shut up and get on board..
but yeah lets only believe the medai when it suits are arguments

I am going to say that Mike McCarthy pulled him into the office and had some tea with him and told him to please STFU

It doesn't surprise me that everyone is frustrated after the loss. It's going to manifest in different ways, especially with such young people like Finley. He was probably bothered that he didn't catch either ball, and both balls were difficult catches - I think we can all agree on that. He's a Packer and I'm willing not to insult him. Give him a stern talking to and a "free pass" this time. He can't keep the attitude up though.

He is a young kid making a silly and aggressive comment.. I mark it up as a coaching opportunity, because I am sure Mike McCarthy and staff will be on his arse about that type of comment.

Kind of like the out of context Rodgers comment as mentioned.. a one time pass type of thing.. don't give the media any fodder or they will take the house on you.

On the "Pack Attack" program last night filmed in Wausau, WI.. he was more humble.. not the greatest public speaker, but I didn't hear any of this 'tude.

I love that line.... "the tight end's quote" Nope not Finely, not Jermichael, but the tight end

I'm not sure what you're getting at here. Rodgers said it and the media reported it. That's their job. I don't remember anybody blowing it out of proportion. It was a very minor story that was quickly lost in all of the Brett Favre hoopla, as it deserved to be.

I think the veteran players should take him aside and let him know you don't talk that way about your QB. Even if you feel that way, you shut up and man up.
