Stephen A. Smith is one of the few people who careless about hearing Aaron Rodgers speak during his weekly appearance on “The Pat McAfee Show.”
On Friday, the “First Take” host claimed he has never watched the Green Bay Packers QB sit-down with Pat McAfee because he simply talks too much instead of winning on the field.
“I never watch Pat McAfee with Aaron Rodgers,” Smith said, via Awful Announcing. “I watch Pat McAfee with everybody else. That’s the one thing I do skip. I have no interest in seeing Aaron Rodgers on The Pat McAfee Show, because Aaron Rodgers just keeps talking, talking, talking, instead of winning, winning, winning. And that’s what annoys me! Aaron Rodgers ain’t won a playoff game since he’s been on The Pat McAfee Show, have you noticed that?”
Pat McAfee caught a bad stray in that comment. However, Rodgers and the Packers have won one playoff game since he began appearing on McAfee’s show. It came in the 2020 NFC Divisional Round against the Los Angeles Rams.
Smith continued his criticism of Rodgers as he brought up him skipping OTAs and failing to build relationships with younger receivers such as rookie Romeo Doubs, who shockingly admitted he had never hung out with Rodgers last season off the field.
“Aaron Rodgers seems more committed to making headlines at this point in his career than he is to winning,” Smith said. “Nobody is bringing that up. I am not accusing the man of going out on the football field and not trying to win, but…there are nuggets of intel that we have witnessed and received over the years that shows, that there’s more that Aaron Rodgers could have done to facilitate winning.”
Rodgers is fresh off his darkness retreat that is supposed to help him in his decison for his NFL future. The Packers owe Rodgers $110 million on the three-year, $150 million contract extension he signed with the team last offseason. He either returns to them or tells them he would like to be traded.
Rodgers threw for 3,695 yards with 26 touchdowns and 12 interceptions on 64.6% passing in 2022. The team missed out on the playoffs after a Week 18 loss to the Detroit Lions.WANT MORE FROM TOTALPROSPORTS? FOLLOW US ON GOOGLE NEWS.
