Terry Bradshaw eviscerated Aaron Rodgers on national television on Sunday. During the live broadcast from the Naval Academy in Annapolis, Maryland, the four-time Super Bowl champion quarterback didn’t mince words when talking about Packers QB Aaron Rodgers. Rodgers recently was caught violating NFL COVID-19 protocol and misleading fans, players, and the NFL about his COVID vaccination status.
Rodgers, who recently had a successful stint as a guest host on Jeopardy, has seen a precipitous fall in the eyes of the public. After missing Sunday’s game against the Kansas City Chiefs because he contracted the virus, news came out about his half-truths and deception regarding his unvaccinated status. Bradshaw took a moment to let him know how he felt.
“It would’ve been nice if Aaron came down to the naval academy and learned to be honest. Learned not to lie. Because that’s what you did, Aaron. You lied.”
Rodgers spoke to Pat McAfee earlier in the week and said that his word games (he said he was “immunized” when asked if he was vaccinated) were all a part of a league-wide witch hunt. He said that he is allergic to one of the ingredients in the mRNA versions of the COVID-19 vaccines. He failed to account for the fact that the Johnson & Johnson vaccine, which exists and is approved for use in adults, is not an MRNA vaccine at all.
“I didn’t lie in the initial press conference. During that time, it was a witch hunt that was going on across the league. My plan was to say that I’ve been immunized. It wasn’t some sort of ruse or lie; it was the truth.”
Aaron Rodgers will continue to face public scrutiny as he continuously doubles down on his take on the situation. He may even face discipline from the NFL, since he openly violated league and public health measures. Rodgers has yet to receive formal discipline, but unspoken blackballing is not unheard of in the NFL. They’ve done it for far less legitimate reasons, such as protesting the killing of black people by police.
