Found August 15, 2013 on Pro Football Zone:

Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers told Peter King of SI.com that he feels sorry for Texas A&M quarterback Johnny Manziel for everything he’s gone through this year. “I feel bad for Johnny Manziel. I mean, he’s made some decisions … I just think, he’s a 20-year-old kid, and I wish he could just live like a 20-year-old,” sad Rodgers via The MMQB.com. “Ten years ago, when I was in college, nobody was following anyone around. I could walk around campus [at Cal] and no one knew who I was. No Twitter. Facebook was just starting. I didn’t even know what my Berkeley.edu address was. I couldn’t get a Facebook page. So that’s how things have changed. “I don’t do Instagram. I don’t want people to know where I am.” It is unfortunate what Manziel has gone through, but he needs to realize that it’s time to grow up and carry himself like an adult. When it comes to Rodgers,  he never won the Heisman Trophy as a freshman and he went to a Pac-10 school (at the time) and didn’t play ball for an SEC school located in Texas.   Need NFL Tickets?
