The Steelers will be on the road this coming Sunday when they head to Lambeau Field to take on Aaron Rodgers and the Green Bay Packers.
In his weekly appearance on The Pat McAfee Show, Rodgers spoke about the Steelers, Mike Tomlin, and also revealed that he’s a big fan of Pittsburgh Dad.
“I have a ton of respect for Mike [Tomlin],” Rodgers said. “I think he’s a fantastic coach, I love the way he leads, I love the way he talks after the game, he always seems to keep things even-keeled.”
“I’ve been around a lot of Pittsburgh people over the years, I’ve loved my time with all of them,” Rodgers said. “I’ve learned to speak the language really well. Which has allowed me to follow and become a big fan of Pittsburgh Dad. If you haven’t seen him on Twitter, big ‘shaht aht’ some incredible, incredible videos. That was most of my career with Mike [McCarthy] in the headset, trying to figure out what the hell he was saying. It’s a great blue-collar town, there’s a lot of great people that live there, it’s got a lot of history, that city.”
Rodgers’ contract has a potential “out” in 2022 that could leave the future Hall of Famer on the open market.
His comments today were more than enough to get him linked there with the sudden decline of Ben Roethlisberger.
