Chris Collinsworth set of football fans with some comments he made during the December 12 Sunday Night Football broadcast of the game between the Green Bay Packers and Chicago Bears. The NBC analyst said that Aaron Rodgers had been more honest than anyone he can think of this season. Fans begged to differ.

Aaron Rodgers famously misled his team, the NFL, and the public about his COVID-19 vaccination status. He then caught the virus and was forced to miss a game while he recovered. Collinsworth made the statement in the second quarter of the game between the division rivals.

“He doesn’t care. Have you seen a guy, and in particular this year. be more honest about everything, you may not agree with everything he says, but we have heard from the beginning of this entire season exactly what he thinks about everything.”

Fans responded quickly and savagely. They bluntly and directly pointed out the ridiculous nature of Collinsworth’s comment. Collinsworth likely regrets what he said already.

“Have you ever heard a guy be more honest …” – Collinsworth on Aaron Rodgers Uh, yes, Cris, most definitely have heard others be more honest”

“Is @CollinsworthPFF asking if we’ve seen a guy be more honest than Aaron Rodgers? Nah. That didn’t just happen.”

“Chris Collinsworth just said we have never heard an NFL player be more honest than Aaron Rodgers this season, the same Aaron Rodgers who notably lied this season”

Aaron Rodgers isn’t letting the controversy affect his game. He threw for 341 yards, 4 touchdowns, and no interceptions against Chicago. The Packers improved to 10-3, beating the Bears 45-30.
