Colin Cowherd thinks Aaron Rodgers deserves more criticism.
The Fox Sports personality talked at length on his national radio show Tuesday about the Green Bay Packers’ quarterback seemingly skating by tougher critics.
Rodgers, 32, has won one Super Bowl and has a playoff record of 7-6.
Cowherd’s mini-rant was in response to Pro Football Focus’ rankings of the best NFL rosters. Green Bay’s roster ranked No. 2.
“Now we discover, and believe, they have the second-best roster in the league. (They have) one of the most-stable front offices, one of the best GMs, one of the best rosters now. Eight years – one playoff run, no criticism,” Cowherd said.
“And, for the record, he plays in a historically kind of weak division (NFL North). Chicago is enigmatic, Detroit is historically poorly run and Minnesota runs hot and cold, though I do like their young roster.”
Cowherd compared the criticism Rodgers’ faces to that of the Cowboys’ Tony Romo, perhaps the most-scrutinized NFL player in the league.
“It’s amazing to me. Tony Romo, of the Dallas Cowboys, has 25 fourth-quarter comebacks – 25! – Rodgers has 10. I mean, it’s amazing to me.”
Here’s the full clip.
Ever wonder why Aaron Rodgers gets no criticism?
