Charles Woodson doesn’t get Rodgers criticism

Charles Woodson AP

It seems to be open season on Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers, with former teammates lining up to take shots at him, thinly veiled or otherwise.

But at least one guy who used to play with him doesn’t get the sudden beef Greg Jennings and Donald Driver seem to have with Rodgers.

It might be a receiver thing,” Raiders defensive back Charles Woodson said with a laugh, via Jason Wilde of ESPNWisconsin.com

On a more serious note, Woodson said he wasn’t sure why Rodgers is such a popular target.

“I’m not sure where all this stuff is coming from,” Woodson said. “I just don’t understand.. . . I think A-Rod would consider these guys his friends, so for stuff like this to be coming out about him now that the guys are gone, it’s got to be hurtful to him because what are they talking about, to question his leadership ability, his leadership skills? The guy is one of the best players in the NFL, and I think he does a great job as far as leading them into battle.

“I’m not sure where the attacks – and believe me, they are not warranted, for sure – I don’t know where it’s coming from.”

Rodgers has taken the high road thus far, and Woodson said that as much as anything was a testament to his leadership.

“I just think the best thing that A-Rod does, he’s been able to keep a lot of things from getting to him,” Woodson said. “The way he came in following a legend and handled those pressures, his ability to be a steady guy throughout that time and then going out and performing at the level he performed, that shows leadership. And he’s continued to get better. Every player should look at him and say, ‘Here’s a guy who’s really on top of the world, and he’s trying to get better. That’s what I think is so hard to understand about what [Jennings and Driver] said.”

Woodson has his own reasons to be bitter about the Packers because of his own departure this offseason, saying: “Yeah, I got fired. I might be a little bitter about being fired. Who wouldn’t be? But that’s it.”

Being able to put his own feelings aside without making it the fault of someone else is clearly something not every former Packer believes in.

    Couldn’t agree with Woodson more, even as a Charger fan I can admit he is all class. One small thing though is I wouldn’t refer to Rodgers as A-Rod. Someone else kind of ruined that nick-name.

  2. realfootballfan says: Aug 16, 2013 2:33 PM

    Since he wasn’t in the meeting room with him, I think his perspective is pretty useless. These guys who were in the meeting room with him say he doesn’t take criticism well. Therefore, he should work on that.

    Charles, you are a class act. Where going to miss you.

  4. tremoluxman says: Aug 16, 2013 2:35 PM

    Woodson was on defense and had little interaction with Rodgers other than watch him from the sidelines. Driver and Jennings worked with him daily in practice and in games. Maybe they know something he doesn’t.

  6. theoriginalbvan says: Aug 16, 2013 2:36 PM

    Ya left out the best part!

    Charles Woodson has some thoughts regarding Aaron Rodgers.

    “I would say this: There’s been times throughout my career there when defensively we put a piss-poor product on the field, and we’ve been in games and won ballgames solely on the arm of Aaron Rodgers and the legs of Aaron Rodgers and what he’s been able to do throwing a ball to a Greg, a Donald, a Jermichael,” Woodson said. “A couple years ago, we were 15- 1, and if we have any other quarterback other than Aaron Rodgers, we’re 7-9.

    The reality that Rodgers is just another diva is starting to surface. … That shouldn’t be a surprise.

    The water in Green Bay (after years of drinking it) turns humble football players into prima donnas. …. Just ask Brent Faver.

    And I supposed you were in the meeting room? Why don’t you shut up. Aaron Rodgers is the greatest QB in the NFL currently and will easily be Top 2 All Time for Green Bay and Top 2 for all time in the NFL.

    Why do fans or other players think they know how Driver and Jennings should feel about Rodgers?

    They have had their own interactions with Rodgers and have based their opinions on those interactions. Its very possible that Rodgers is a great player, but could be a jerk towards his teammates, specifically his wide receivers.

    I dont know about everything thats happened between them, but its their right to voice their opinion if they want to.

  16. whatjusthapped says: Aug 16, 2013 2:56 PM

    This goes against what all the Viking trolls have been saying. Could that mean that they don’t know what they are talking about? Sort of like their Superbowl predictions for this year?

    Even opposing fans have to admit Rodgers is the best QB in the NFL — people like to throw snowballs at the guy on the top of the mountain — he’s just got to stop standing up there holding Ryan Braun’s hand.

    My Super Bowl prediction is that the Packers won’t be there and I feel quite confident.

    Who is anyone to tell Jennings and Driver that their opinions of Rodgers are incorrect? They actually know him. Do you?

    Jennings hasn’t played a full season due to injuries for several years and Driver has mostly been locker room wallpaper for his last two years.

    Ask the players who were actually on the field with him, Nelson, Jones, and Cobb. Also, all the O-linemen who he made look better than they are, with his ability to make a success out of plays that were headed for failure, thanks to poor blocking.

    There’s the real perspective.

    Players for all teams don’t get along with one another. We don’t like our boss’s at work but we deal with them to get the job done.. You don’t have to like one another to win ball games. Just have good chemistry on the field and keep the blame game to yourself…. Everyone acts like this is so new and bad for the team… It’s NOT, it happens all the time with players… If I made 10 mil. a year, I would have a ego too.. Maybe not as bad as some of these players.

  24. isit5pmyet says: Aug 16, 2013 3:15 PM

    I think that the GB receivers feel under-appreciated because they are always “catching passes from the great Rodgers”. Only way to put that to bed is to see how they do outside the system… which reminds me, what happened with James Jones when he tried to test the market a few years back? No takers. With Jennings it is more sour grapes then anything. Nobody can attack his play, so they go after the man. …. just my two cents.

    I’d like to hear Jeff Saturday’s thoughts. He is the anti-diva and has played with Peyton. He would be as unbaised as anyone.

  25. rasalghoul says: Aug 16, 2013 3:17 PM

    I think people should read Driver’s comments a little closer. He wasn’t slamming Rodgers, he said Rodgers expected everyone to be accountable instead of Rodgers taking the heat on missed assignments. Best of luck to Grant Jenners in Minnesota, we’ll never forget you or your troll of a sister.

  26. hendeeze says: Aug 16, 2013 3:19 PM

    Seems simple enough to me.

    Although his former receivers loved playing with him. They didn’t think too much of him as a person. Sounds like a personality conflict. Although when I watched my Niners destroy the Packers in the playoffs, Rogers did seem very cordial shaking the hands of the receivers he knew wouldn’t be back. I had though it was a classy sign of respect. But I guess it didn’t go both ways.

  27. hatesycophants says: Aug 16, 2013 3:20 PM

    This is what is so comically ridiculous about Packers fans. Overly sensitive, uneducated children. One tool says Erin is going to be Top 2 All Time! Hasn’t the guy been a starter for 6 years? And you want to crap on all the truly transcendent NFL QBs by elevating him to that status?

    Classless, ignorant, sensitive fans.

  28. thankheavenfornumber14 says: Aug 16, 2013 3:20 PM

    Driver never liked Rodgers
    In an interview he stated that he told Rodgers I hate you I think you hate me let’s just play to win and put that aside
    Driver always kissed Favre’s butt and pouted when he left because he knew he wasn’t going to be targeted as much any more big crybaby just like Jennings
    Dear former Packer receivers you both played with Favre who Choked by throwing interceptions in the NFC championship game NOT Rodgers get over your selves and have some class like Charles you ungrateful whiners No Rodgers no ring punks

  29. stellarperformance says: Aug 16, 2013 3:21 PM

    I think Driver tried to speak well of two friends on opposite sides of a fence and didn’t do either very well. You can’t. He’d be better off remaining silent.

    Jennings is upset that he wasn’t needed anymore and rather than accept the same pay the Vikings were offering to stay put, he chose to try and stick it the Packers. Think about it……he has had one job with one employer in one career. He doesn’t know how to exit with dignity because he’s never had to. He’ll learn.

    Woodson is the voice of reason and speaks clearly exactly what he wants to say.

    Rodgers is the best leader the Packers have had since Starr. Period.

    The Packer haters can suck fish eggs.

    I have no dog in the fight as I don’t cheer for the Pack but from the outside looking in it seems like many fans have an issue with Rodgers especially Vikes fans (go figure). IMO I’d rather have one..if not the best QB in the league that has some arrogance leading my team as opposed to a soft spoken minimal talent qb any day of the week.

  32. packerbackernj says: Aug 16, 2013 3:24 PM

    One player was butthurt (jennings), his buddy (driver) tries to explain his butthurtness in the most vague way. I still love me some DD, great guy. And just like Favre, when his stint in Minn ends in a complete burning mess, I’ll pull Jenning’s jersey back out of the closet, as long as Rich Spielman is a magician allows me to reach it, word on the street is he likes staying in closets.

  33. jrmbadger says: Aug 16, 2013 3:24 PM

    For all you Viking fans – go ahead and make fun of Rodgers all you like. The reality of the situation is that he’s having a sharp training camp while Chrissy Flounder is not.

    As a Packer fan the best part about this is that despite having the best running game on the planet Flounder cant get it done, but just when you are about to permanently write him off, he has a game that is JUST good enough to keep the Vikings from replacing him…. it’s perfect!

  34. aa1829 says: Aug 16, 2013 3:28 PM

    DD is now dead in my opinion. Have no use for him and GJ. I’m just getting over Lombardi going to the team in DC. He died when he went there, unfortunately literally. Have to use initials because I don’t believe in saying their race baiting name, the R word.

    Jennings and his sister have been slime balls for years, but Driver is different. As nice a guy as he is, he just isn’t the smartest. He stuck his foot in his mouth and tried to back out of it. Stay out of GB DD.

    there is not a team in the nfl who would not trade their current qb for AR. (cue the pats, mules, and if the skins or colts fans want to chime in..so be it)

  41. deltaoracle says: Aug 16, 2013 3:52 PM

    Driver said Rodgers was “a great guy” and then tried to explain how Jennings may have got his feelings hurt. Somehow, largely through the efforts of people on the wrong side of the river, that has mutated into “Driver was ripping Rodgers.”
    James Jones has said Rodgers has no need or reason to cover up mistakes that WRs make.
    Rodgers could say “It really looks like a nice day today,” and the Heidi trolls here would be howling that it shows he’s an aloof prima donna. When Ponder refused to get into a hissing match with Harvin, I wrote here that I was impressed by the class he showed. Too bad so few Mini fans are able to show similar respect.

  42. fdugrad says: Aug 16, 2013 3:55 PM

    I do not know HOW or WHY the WRs feel this way about AR, but, I know that it is not necessary to mention it to the media. If they have told him about their concerns while teammates, it’s no longer something they NEED to repeat. If they have NOT told their QB while playing together and to him directly, then telling tales “out of school,” is not especially admirable. Either way, for whatever reason, it is a bit baffling, at least to me.

  43. competitivecompetitioncompeter says: Aug 16, 2013 3:55 PM

    So it’s coming out that Rodgers is one of the best QBs of all time, and is perhaps perceived as being a bit arrogant. Well, how about that.

    You know, arrogance. It’s like “swag”, but for white people.

  44. conormacleod says: Aug 16, 2013 3:55 PM

    I don’t recall reading a single Vikings fan saying Rogers sucks. We all know he is very good. But, he also appears to be quite a jerk of a human being. He has proven that on many occasions. It’s the Packers fans that are in love with him that seem to be defending his honor as a man. Well, good luck with that. BTW: when he retires, he will never set foot in GB again. Your town sucks.

  50. granadafan says: Aug 16, 2013 4:02 PM

    Jennings is the new Terrell Owens with only a fraction of the talent and fitness. At the end of his career and he’s desperate for a job, GMs will remember this diva and the way he burnt bridges by throwing his team/ QB under the bus. The combo of the cancer Jennings and his crazy sister will be too much for teams to take a risk on.

  51. skpetersen says: Aug 16, 2013 4:08 PM

    What Jennings can’t seem to figure out is that no matter what his personal feelings are about Rodgers or the Packers, he looks like a whiny bitch airing them in public. But no one ever accused him of being a Mensa member anyhow.

    Charles has always been much more savvy with the media and this is on perfect display here. Even though he has reason to crap all over the Packers, he won’t. And, as for his thoughts on Rodgers, you’ve got to remember that Charles, as the veteran that he is, was always as much or more a leader on the team as Rodgers. I think his opinion on Rodgers’ leadership is as valid as anyone’s. That said, I think Charles would say the same thing even if he thought Rodgers was a complete a-hole.

    Driver’s comments were not that surprising. He’s said before that he’s a Brett Favre guy and on Rodgers’ watch, Donald’s receptions went down every year. He’s always been good buddies with Jennings and so I can see how he’d side more with Jennings over Rodgers.

    All that said, no one here knows the truth about any of this and, in the grand scheme of things, it doesn’t amount to a hill of mouse turds. I don’t care if Rodgers is the biggest jerk in the world to his WRs. It’s his job to throw it and their job to catch it, end of story. In the words of Al Davis, just win, baby.

    Just found this quote from Packers WR James Jones:

    “It’s everybody’s responsibility,” Jones said. “Everybody in here is a man. You’re not in college no mre, you’re not in high school no more. When you make a mistake, you have to own up to your own mistake.

    “Just because we have a good quarterback, it ain’t his responsibility to take everybody else’s wrongdoing. If we make a mistake, we own up to our mistakes. When he makes a mistake, he owns up to his. He lets us know when (we’re) wrong, and we let him know when he’s wrong.”

    Looks like some WRs know how to put on their big boy pants and own up to their mistakes.

    I think the Vikings have zero chance of going to the SB. Are you not familiar with the curse, which use to prevent the Vikings from winning the SB but now prevents them from winning the NFC Championship Game? I don’t expect the Vikings will ever go to the Super Bowl, let alone win it. But I think they have a good team, they’re fun to watch, and they’re at least as good as the Packers.

    Webster’s has also added a picture of a drunk, fat slob dressed in green and gold and wearing a cheesehead hat to its definition of the word “self-important.”

    C Wood is still obviously suffering from the effects of his “Brainwashing” in Green Bay.
    Get well soon Wood….we miss you.

    On another note, the question isn’t whether DD and Jennings had personality issues with Rodgers. (As most of you Viking fans tried to push.)
    Both receivers have stated publicly, that they thought he was a great guy. The issue is on his leadership skills and his inability to cover up their mistakes.

    And I believe Woodson, James Jones and a handful of other professionals have already stated their opinion on this.

  59. realfootballfan says: Aug 16, 2013 4:56 PM

    Gerbschmidt,
    Okay, homer fan idiot. I was just pointing out that guys who were in meetings with him pointed out that he bristles at any criticism. If you’re loving the meaningless fantasy play until they get to the playoffs, keep attacking people like me for pointing out the obvious, that this is a shortcoming that he needs to overcome.

    And for those solely trying to blame the below average Green Bay defense for why they’ve lost the last couple of years in the playoffs, you must have been blind to how poorly he’s played since their Super Bowl run in their last two playoff losses. He’s certainly not been part of a winning solution.

  60. smedley61 says: Aug 16, 2013 5:15 PM

    It’s obvious Jennings feels slighted by the Pack and #12 not standing up for him like he did with Jones. So I get him lashing out. But with the money he was asking and his injury problems he was lucky the Vikes paid him so he ought to keep his mouth shut and be more concerned about his new team than trashing his old one. Longwell didn’t retire as a Viking and never trashed his old team or teammates and neither did #4. I hope Jennings got this out of his system because he was a great receiver for us and helped us win a Super Bowl.

    Seriously, I challenge every single Viking fan/packer hater on these posts, to give me your complete and honest answer, on who you would want under center for your team this year.

    Aaron Rodgers or Christian Ponder?

    Ponder, who has looked rather ordinary with the greatest rushing attack the NFL has ever seen, or Rodgers, who has won a boatload of games, a Super Bowl and an MVP award. All behind a makeshift O-line and an anemic running game.

    Please answer honestly and I look forward to your responses….then laughing.

    Woodson keeping it real.

    Packer fans: “That Chrles Woodson……what a class act, always loved the guy.”

    Woodson never had to deal with Rodgers like the WRs did…never was in the same huddle with him, never in the Offensive meetings and watching tape with him. I take what the WRs have said a lot more serious than what a DB says about Rodgers. Think about it Cheesers…..who would know the “real” Rodgers better….the WRs or a DB? Hmmmmm…

    Charles Woodson is the man and so is Donald Driver. I still like Bishop and Jennings even though they are Vikings and Jennings has said some not so nice things about the Packers.

    OMG Rodgers isn’t a perfect human being, big phucking deal. Who is? Tom Brady maybe Tim Tebow definitely.

    Love the comment about arrogance being the “Swag” of white folks, that is spot on my friend.

    the defense gb players do not sit at the same lunch table as the offense.
    ’nuff said.
    also, gb D-players eat their own. (C.Kaepernick)

    Yeah, I didn’t think I’d get an answer.

    Driver said something about he would prefer that Rodgers make them (the WR’s) feel good after they ran the wrong route.

    I don’t get that. Mistakes must be called out before they can be corrected.

    Both Driver & Jennings played with Favre, who had a more improvisational style. Perhaps he didn’t do that as much, in terms of demanding the correct routes.

    That being said, as much as I love Favre, each only have 1 SB. Rodgers has potential to win more than 1. May be that Rodgers style is more effective at winning championships. Time will tell.

    Tom Brady is a prick. Why can’t Rodgers be one?

    Favre is a legend. Never missed a game?!?! Wow. 20 years.

    For a month now Greg Jennings has acted like a chick with cramps even after his coach told him to put a plug in it and all Rodgers has done has said “opinions of guys not on the team anymore don’t matter to me” and it’s Rodgers who said to be soft etc. Jennings is acting all butt hurt over not getting the $14M or so he thought he was worth and he can’t let it go. The Packers originally offered him what he finally settled for with the Vikings. He just thought he was worth more and when he didn’t get it suddenly he was “brainwashed” and Rodgers wasn’t a good leader etc.

    It’s pretty simple folks, Aaron Rodgers received all credit for the offense from day one and no credit was given to his superstar receivers Jennings and Driver, and Rodgers never pointed them out and they feel snubbed. and it was only further emphasized when Jennings signed with Vikings and everyone said GJ was “carried” by Rodgers all those years.

    And again Rodgers never stood up to dispute anything like that he instead made wagers with fans about steroid use in baseball. Right or wrong, that’s why they’re saying what they are.

    Rick Spielman is a Magician is the quintessential Vikings fan. His Super Bowl prediction is about the Packers. He is obsessed with the Packers. He loathes them and follows every Packer thread hoping to find something to troll with.
    Occasionally, he will watch a Vikings game. Unless they fall behind in the score, then he’ll turn on the Packers and root for the other team.
    So forlorn…..so bittersweet….so Minnesota.

    Rodgers may be good but he cannot carry the cheese any further. The running game, the O line and the defense are lame. The packers are on their way out and the other NFC North teams are all capable of showing them the door. And as their name suggests the only thing they will be good at is the reach around.

    Just a quick response from somebody in Chico (Aaron’s home town)… I don’t know Rodgers personally, but I have met him before and spoken with him very briefly. I congratulated him in person on his MVP. I also know numerous people here who do know him personally. He strikes me as quite a nice guy, very down to earth, actually pretty humble. I think he’s an incredibly competitive person who sets very high expectations for himself and has very high expectations for those within his offense. I have a hard time believing what those have said who’ve left the team. I’d say for a QB who does the things he’s done, with what I’d call a very mediocre (at best) offensive line, is most impressive! He demands his people to be the very best. What’s wrong with that? I think the Packer organization have more than just a great QB on their team. They also have a very good young man who’s a fine ambassador for the NFL!
