Aaron Rodgers must be one of the most confident guys in the world. He’s probably the best quarterback in the NFL and has his Green Bay Packers looking to ride to another Super Bowl run. With Rodgers, who already has a ring, an MVP award, several Pro Bowls and a solid life overall, what’s to worry about?
Apparently, it’s his height. 60 Minutes ran a segment on Rodgers Sunday as fans won to meet the star quarterback. However, one fan let some words slip by saying, “You look a lot smaller in person.” Rodgers definitely doesn’t appreciate it, even though he is 6-2.
“You know I— I just that, that’s one of the more ridiculous comments that could be thrown at me is that. Especially coming from somebody who’s 5-7,” Rodgers said.
Interesting stuff, though, but his teammates — Greg Jennings and Clay Matthews – say that he is a very sensitive person.
Jennings: He’s sensitive. So you got to be careful what you say around him.
Matthews: Real sensitive.
Jennings: You know, he takes everything to heart.
Pelley: What kind of things are you talking about?
Jennings: Like once he sees this interview, he’s going to be sensitive to what, the fact that we’re saying he’s sensitive.
Matthews: Yeah. So, I’ll compliment him on the clothes he wears. Just make him feel good. And consequently he’ll go out, feel good, play good, make us feel good. So, we just, you know, give him a pat on the back every once in a while.
Pelley: A little quarterback management?

Wonding who's the most clutch comback QB in NFL History? One clue, he's still playing and it's not Tom Brady or Aaron Rodgers.
