Steelers Legend Terry Bradshaw Trashes ‘Weak’ Aaron Rodgers Over Controversy With Packers “Let Him Cry” (VIDEO)
There are a ton of people who are on Aaron Rodgers side in his fight against the Green Bay Packers — Terry Bradshaw is not one of those people.
The biggest story in the NFL world right now is the ongoing drama between the Green Bay Packers and quarterback Aaron Rodgers. The future hall of fame player is reportedly upset at the team over several moves that they have made, which includes drafting QB Jordan Love.
Pittsburgh Steelers Hall of Famer and NFL on Fox broadcaster Terry Bradshaw did not mince words when he was asked about the entire situation.
“With him being that upset shows me just how weak he is,” Bradshaw said on the “Moose & Maggie” program on WFAN radio.
“Who the hell cares who you draft? He is a three-time MVP in the league and he’s worried about this guy they drafted last year [in the first round].”
Bradshaw thinks there might be more to the story than meets the eye.
“I don’t know what was said behind the scenes,” he said. “I don’t know if he said, ‘Look I’ll play [in 2020] and then I want out of here,’ and they said, ‘Fine.’ Then he is the MVP of the league. None of us know unless he told some insiders and they are saying it. I don’t hear it. For him to be upset, my God, I don’t understand that.”
Bradshaw, who won four Super Bowls in the 1970s, dealt with the same situation when the Steelers drafted Mark Malone in the first round in 1980, three years before he retired.
“I had them coming at me from all angles,” Bradshaw said. “I embraced it. Because when we went to practice, I wasn’t worried about those guys. They didn’t scare me a bit. So I don’t understand why he is so upset at Green Bay.”
Rodgers reportedly wouldn’t consider coming back unless the GM is fired. He even went as far to threaten retirement.
“Are you kidding me?” Bradshaw said. “Really? Aaron, that’s where this is?
“Here’s what I would do: I wouldn’t budge. Let him gripe. Let him cry. Retire. You are . Go ahead and retire. See you later. I’m really strong about stuff like that. It just makes him look weak. How dare you draft somebody?”
“Obviously he doesn’t need the money,” Bradshaw said. “Probably he should just retire and go [host] ‘Jeopardy.’ Either he gives in, or Green Bay don’t give in. Move on.”
“I flat would call him on it,” Bradshaw said. “I have never hem-hawed about something so much in my life. … He has really put them in a pickle. Green Bay is really in a pickle, and if he retires then that takes care of that.”
“Shut your mouth and play quarterback,” Bradshaw said. “You’re a blessed man to be making millions that all of us on this Zoom call would give anything to make that in a lifetime of earnings. I have no respect, I have no patience for people that do that.”
“Where does a player have the right to criticize the front office?” Bradshaw said. “When they are in fact the stars of the football [team] and making all this money, they think that empowers them to have a position and a place to say, ‘I want this. I want that.’ Quietly, they know what they need. To have a player make these demands, it drives me nuts.”
