Don’t Shame Rodgers for Speaking his Mind
Aaron Rodgers had some things to say after yesterday’s practice about his young wide receivers. He called the effort ‘piss-poor’ and ripped them for a bad effort. This might cause some pause for some people. In today’s society, we try to sugarcoat everything in life. Tell people things are okay when they’re not. People fucking hate conflict. It’s not in their nature these days to come out and say how they feel. We live in world where it’s better to be passive aggressive than being blunt and direct. Rodgers speaking his mind is a great thing for this team and shows true character.
Rodgers calling his young receivers’ performance ‘piss-poor’ should light a fire under their asses. That’s what he’s hoping for these receivers. Rodgers wants to find a rhythm with one or two of these guys. He knows the media will be asking him for the next couple of weeks about his receivers on a regular basis. If he needs to be the taskmaster, that’s okay with him. The QB1 is also leaning on his veteran receivers to be more of a leader out there. With Jordy Nelson not there anymore, someone needs to step up. Whether it’s Davante Adams or Randall Cobb, they need to be man out there.
Kudos to Rodgers for being the leader of this team. People want him to speak out more about things like this but if his language is too far, it’s too much. People need to realize a few things about training camp. You drag ass sometimes in practice because that’s all you’re doing. You’re so sick and tired of going up against the same guys day in and day out. And you’re sick of getting your ass kicked at times by a veteran leader. To me, Rodgers calling out his receivers is a way to keep them engaged throughout training camp and try to take their game to the next level.
Keep doing you, 12
