McAfee took NFL Films to task for crediting Colin Cowherd as it relates to Aaron Rodgers being traded to the New York Jets. As we know, the quarterback has become a regular on the show and it was on that show where he broke the news that he wanted to play for the New York Jets. It was a major scoop for McAfee.
On Hard Knocks, they showed clips of people like Colin Cowherd, Craig Carton and Nick Wright talking about the story and not mentioning the newest guy on ESPN.
“The biggest moment in our show’s history, top-10 stream in the history of the internet, and we are very thankful that Aaron chose to do that,” McAfee said.” Obviously, we have a good relationship with him. He breaks the news that he’s going to the Jets. They just kinda gave that on Hard Knocks to Colin Cowherd and I think Craig Carton and Nick Wright as well. NFL Films, I thought we had a good relationship. What the f is that?”
“I was a little taken aback. I was a little perturbed, sent a text or two to NFL Films like, ‘What the f?’ Do you guys have a vendetta against me?” McAfee continued. “Is Colin paying you directly, is Nick Wright paying you directly? Is Craig Carton paying you directly? What the f did I do…but they said that’s not the case, there was a misunderstanding, miscommunication.”
NFL Films Presents airs on FS1, so perhaps that relationship led Hard Knocks in the direction of their personalities.
The former NFL punter will get over this moment as he is bound to break even more news in the future as players to tend to gravitate to him.
The annual HBO documentary is following the Jets this year and goes behind the scenes at summer training camp. New York brought in veteran quarterback Aaron Rodgers over the offseason as they look to end a 12-year playoff drought.
The team is not looked at as a playoff contender, but a viable contender to win the Super Bowl. Anything less and this upcoming season will be a failure.
A new episode of Hard Knocks will premiere on HBO and HBO Max every Tuesday at 10 pm ET, with the season finale on September 5.
