Just for the record Driver also said the Packers would win the Super Bowl and Aaron Rodgers is one of the best quarterbacks in the league. Unfortunately for Driver it was his other quote that caught the attention of everyone else. “We’ve always said that the quarterback is the one that needs to take the pressure off everyone else. If a guy runs the wrong route, it’s easy for the quarterback to say, ‘Hey, I told him to run that route’ than for the guy to be like, ‘Well, I ran the wrong route.’ Sometimes you ask Aaron to take the pressure off the guys so we won’t look bad, but he didn’t want to do that. He felt like if you did something bad, you do it. But I think that’s the difference. You want that leadership, and I think sometimes you may not feel like you got it. You have to earn that respect at the end of the day, and I think that’s what Greg was probably referring to.” I get what Driver is saying and maybe it would be nice from time to time if Rodgers didn’t call his teammates out, but it isn’t Rodgers’ job to be their friends. Many would argue that it is better not to baby your teammates and they should be held accountable. Obviously, Rodgers isn’t well-liked but some of his current and former teammates, but once again his job is to win football games and if he hurts your feelings in the process, so be it.
