On Tuesday, the former Pittsburgh Steelers QB said he did not agree with the notion that Rodgers needs to be babied by the franchise.
“I do believe that while Aaron Rodgers is a phenomenal player, he has probably the worst footwork I’ve ever seen for a starting QB… He’s coddled too much. He has no right to want to get the GM fired.”
On Monday, Bradshaw called Rodgers “weak” for stealing the spotlight from incoming players, adding: “He should just retire.”
“Him being that upset shows me how weak he is,” Bradshaw said. “Who the hell cares who you draft? He’s a three-time MVP in the league and he’s worried about this guy they drafted last year at No. 1?”
He continued: “For him to be upset, my God, I don’t understand that. Pittsburgh drafted Mark Malone No. 1 (1980), Cliff Stoudt in the third or fourth round (1977) – I had them coming at me from all angles. 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’s so upset at Green Bay.”
“And then if they fire the general manager he’ll come back? Are you kidding me? Really, Aaron, that’s where this is? Here’s what I’d do – I wouldn’t budge. Let him gripe, let him cry – retire, you’re 38, go ahead and retire, see you later.”
“I’m really strong about stuff like that, and it just makes him look weak,” he reiterated. “Either he gives in and Green Bay doesn’t, or move on.”
