Ex-Packers teammates are ripping Aaron Rodgers again

These stories just keep on coming.

When in Green Bay, one shall eat cheese. When leaving Green Bay, it's customary to find a media outlet and start ripping Aaron Rodgers. 

Unless, of course, you're the brother of Rodgers. Then it's customary to bash him as often as possible. 

So goes the life of the two-time MVP Packers quarterback, and it sounds like he's brought a lot of it on himself. The latest ripping barrage was first revealed in an article in Forbes, where the writer documents multiple ex-teammates recently questioning whether new head coach, 39-year-old Matt LaFleur, will able to co-exist with Rodgers.

“He’s coachable to a point,” said former Packers tight end Jermichael Finley on the Bill Michaels Sports Talk Network. “Once you try to overcoach him, that’s when he’s going to do his own thing. With (former coach Mike) McCarthy, McCarthy used to call a play and Aaron would look at him and (then) it’s a whole different play.

“And we just ran the play that No. 12 called. Sorry. And I think it's going to be a lot worse with a young guy (LaFleur) and with where Aaron’s at in his career. He’s an icon of the NFL.”

In the NFL, every team has a head coach, a quarterbacks coach and a quarterback. It sounds like Rodgers is trying to hold all of those job titles in Green Bay. 

Allow ex-Packers defensive end Kabeer Gbaja-Bjamila to explain his experience with Rodgers. 

“When Aaron became ‘The Man,’ he was ‘The Man’, especially in his own eyes,” Gbaja-Biamila says in the Forbes story. “Let’s just put it that way. Things just changed. I don’t know what to say. I don’t want to lie to you. It’s hard for me to say this without causing drama."

Gbaja-Biamila added that Brett Favre, whom he also played with, was humble while he "felt that Aaron was a little bit more on the arrogant side."
