Aaron Rodgers' bad year just won't end.

His brother Jordan ripped him on The Bachelorette. There are reports that he and Green Bay coach Mike McCarthy aren't getting along. And now his current and former teammates are ripping on him, including former Packers tight end Jermichael Finley, who called Rodgers "very sensitive" and "self-centered" in a lengthy column about Rodgers from The Bleacher Report.

"But Aaron Rodgers is so scared of what guys are going to say that he doesn't say nothing at all," Finley said. "He doesn't get vocal. He goes into his little shell. He's not a guy who hangs out with the fellas. He's real self-centered."

Echoing the likes of retired receiver Greg Jennings before him, Finley calls Rodgers "very sensitive."

"If he's joking with a guy and the guy comes back at him, he doesn't take it too well," Finley said. "Because of what position he's in, he thinks guys are supposed to bow down to him I guess."

The Bleacher Report article goes on to interview an unidentified source who firmly believes Rodgers is getting karma for treating his family the way he supposedly has. Rodgers hasn't talked about the issues brought up by his brother on The Bachelorette, so the only side of the story available is the one that says Rodgers is at fault.

The article also claims Rodgers hasn't talked to his family in two years, even skipping his grandpa's funeral.

Whatever the case is, Rodgers and the Packers are 4-5 and still just one game behind Detroit and Minnesota in the NFC North. Rodgers isn't having a career year, but he's outplaying his 2015 performance by quite a bit, including 12 touchdowns and just 3 interceptions in his last four games, three of which Green Bay lost.
