Green Bay quarterback Aaron Rodgers has strangely been attacked through the media by his former receivers, Viking’s Greg Jennings and retired Donald Driver, over the past two months specifically regarding his leadership skills.
Via ESPNWisconsin.com, former Green Bay Packer Charles Woodson says he doesn’t understand all the attacks on his former quarterback.
I don’t understand where it’s all coming from,” Woodson said again. “I think A-Rod would consider these guys his friends, so for stuff like this to be coming out about him now that the guys are gone, it’s got to be hurtful to him because what are they talking about, to question his leadership ability, his leadership skills? The guy is one of the best players in the NFL, and I think he does a great job as far as leading them into battle. “I’m not sure where the attacks – and believe me, they are not warranted, for sure – I don’t know where it’s coming from.
Woodson, a defensive back, even goes on to joke that it “might be a receiver thing”.
I’m sure Rodgers wishes Jennings played defense so he could face him on the field twice a year. The comments from these former Packers just make them sound bitter. It’s good to see a player take the high road like Woodson did.
