Aaron Rodgers Of Green Bay Packers Says NFC Pro Bowlers ‘Embarrassed Themselves’
I watched some of the Pro Bowl and thought, “Why even pick defensive linemen? They don’t even bother to pressure the quarterback”. I totally get Rodger’s point on this. What do you think?
Criticism of the play in Sunday’s Pro Bowl reached a new level when Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers blasted the effort of some NFC teammates Tuesday.
“I’ll be honest with you,” Rodgers said on ESPN 540 in Milwaukee. “I was a little bit disappointed. I felt like some of the guys on the NFC side embarrassed themselves.”
The AFC routed the NFC 59-41 in a game that drew boos at Aloha Stadium for its lack of early intensity. Rodgers, who started and played the first quarter for the NFC, didn’t name specific players.
“I was just surprised that some of the guys either didn’t want to play or when they were in there didn’t put any effort into it,” Rodgers said
