When you’re a veteran who has spent more than a decade in the league (MFL) many expect you to take up responsibility and accountability for your team’s losses. Similar has been the expectations to marquee figures like Tom Brady, Aaron Rodgers, Russell Wilson. Interestingly all of these spoken off QBs are enduring a tough time leading their team in the 2022-23 regular season.
While Brady and Wilson have come up to take the first bullet (criticism) for their team’s respective losses, Rodgers has been the exact opposite in the recent weeks. He recently went onto bash his teammates after his team registered their 4th loss of this season. Moreover, he added salt on their wounds by speaking to the media after practice. The Quarterback claimed that his teammates were hiding the truth.
Aaron Rodgers stated, “When you’re struggling on offense, you got to look at everything in the details. There’s just been too many simple mental errors. And I’m not a robot up here. I think people in this society have a hard time hearing the truth sometimes.”

Aaron Rodgers, the reigning MVP went onto elaborate on how he and coaching staff are going to hold personnel accountable for their production, just so that the team is able to get back on track as early as possible.
He added, “So I’m going to hold guys accountable, Matt’s going to hold guys accountable. We need guys to focus in on the mental part of this.”
That being said, it remains to be seen whether these ‘harsh’ words from Aaron Rodgers motivate him teammates or sink the ship for his teammate further into the whole.
