Just when you thought the Team-Photo flap was done with, the controversial subject reered its ugly head again on Saturday when Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers criticized linebacker Nick Barnett and tight end Jermichael Finley for their complaints earlier this week.
That in turn triggered another Twitter storm in response from Barnett and Finley.
The question posed to Rodgers on Saturday asked the quarterback about his empathy for players on I.R. Rodgers used it to admonish players that didn’t stay in Green Bay, instead conducting their rehabilitation away from the team.
Rodgers’ comments appeared to be pointed towards Barnett and Finley.
Bill Scott’s reaction: Let it go! People in the organization are upset with Barnett and Finley for taking their grievance public last week. That’s understandable. But Aaron Rodgers is one of the leaders on this team. He talks about wanting to avoid distractions, yet he’s out their creating more.
Rodgers had all season to make a point about players not doing their rehab in Green Bay. But he waited until the team is about to leave for Dallas. Why? What possible good can come out of making those comments right before the Super Bowl. For somebody that doesn’t want distractions, Rodgers is at least guilty of bad timing.
