Jordan Rodgers: Aaron and I “don’t really have that much of a relationship”

If, as many believe, Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers is sensitive (and also sensitive about being called sensitive), he won’t be happy about comments from his brother, Jordan, that were broadcast last night on ABC.

Jordan, a former quarterback who had a couple of shots of espresso with a few NFL teams, is one of the contestants on The Bachelorette. On Monday night’s show, Jordan addressed his relationship with Aaron while discussing an upcoming date in Jordan’s hometown.

“My middle brother won’t be there,” Rodgers said, via Kyle Koster of TheBigLead.com. “Aaron . . . like I said, I have a great relationship with my brother Luke. Me and Aaron don’t really have that much of a relationship. It’s just kind of the way he’s chosen to do life. I choose to stay close with my family and my parents and my brother. It’s not ideal. I love him and I can’t imagine what it’s like to be in his shoes and the pressure he has, the demands from people that he has. Don’t have hard feelings against him, it’s just how things go right now.”

Jordan and Aaron had a bit of a dust up last season, after Aaron took a shot at Russell Wilson’s belief that God chooses sides in football games. Jordan chimed in on the situation in a way that suggested he was choosing Wilson’s side.

  1. erin rogers doesnt even have good relationships with his teamates! according to fantasy digest he was rated in the top 5 of most disliked teamates of all 32 teams!

  2. I can see why they don’t get along very well since they both come off as smug and arrogant.

  3. Add this to evidence that Rodgers might have issues with relationships with people all over, but none of it takes away from what he does on the football field, so as long as it doesn’t affect how he plays, I don’t care.

    Go Pack Go!

  4. I can’t imagine the pressure of being a a quarterback and face of the franchise as a closeted man in a sham relationship. That must put enormous strain on a person and obviously it has. Luckily for Aaron, at the pace he is declining, he will be out of the league in a few years.

  5. Is this really that hard to believe? No doubt, Rodgers is a great QB, but he doesn’t seem like the most likeable guy in the world.

  6. Aarogant likes to dish it out but dang that guy can’t take it. Holds a mean grudge and NEVER forgets any slight whether perceived or real. His sense of humor seems great…. As long as he initiates it

    I’m quite sure I am now off his Christmas card list for writing this.

  7. The more I hear what Aaron has to say, the less I respect him.

    He is a GREAT QB, don’t get me wrong. Might end up being one of the best EVER when it’s all said and done.

    But, he espouses Christianity, but at every turn he seems to crap all over anybody who doesn’t take his bran of some kind of stupid watered down/liberal/PC/main-stream media type Christianity.

    If you don’t believe just say it Aaron. Ain’t not shame in it. Just stop being a poser for your image.

    Seems like maybe that’s part of the conflict with his brother.

  8. This is awfully fascinating but how about some more news about Lindsay Lohan and her Russian billionaire boyfriend?

    I heard they had a fight at her 30th birthday party on Mykonos and she threw his cell phone into the Aegean Sea!

  9. Arod can’t be bothered by this right now. He needs his time free to think of whiny excuses for the Packers upcoming 6-10 season.

  10. I’ve been saying this for years that as soon as Aaron’s play on the football field slips from MVP level it is currently (which it inevitably will), the stories will start to surface about how much of a dink he was to be around. Right now, he’s frankly untouchable because he’s too good to say something like that about.

    Viking fans wonder how it would be if only that mean Aaron Rodgers were humble enough to lose to the Vikings or even to go play for them…

    ************

    Umm.. No we don’t. And he HAS lost to them. Very recently in fact.. .resulting in a HUMBLING loss of the divisional crown.

    Wow, those “I forgot about things I don’t like” drugs that Packer fans must be REALLY good drugs…

  12. I’m sure Aaron is just jealous that his brothers aren’t hampered with bone density of a china doll.

  13. I don’t understand the hate that everyone has for Aaron Rodgers. I’m not a Packers fan (Steelers) so I don’t really care about him either way, but I’ve seen plenty of interviews with him and while he does come off as a bit sensitive, I don’t think I’ve ever seen him do or say anything that should warrant the kind of hatred and disdain that he gets from the majority of NFL fans.

    That’s right! How could anyone forget! viking fans never will. After all, as it is twice every year, the Packer game is their Super Bowl!

    Surprised they didn’t vote that one to be shown on You Tube. lol.

  15. IOW – my middle brother is a better QB than me and he won’t let me ride his coat tails or hang out with his GF’s starlet friends – sooooo I’m gonna put him on blast a little bit….

  16. Umm.. No we don’t. And he HAS lost to them.

    Oh yeah. Twice in their last 11 meetings.

    Impressive as always, Viking fans. You can mount that participation trophy right next to the zero championships.

  17. They both have at least one thing in common, as they both seem to think it’s very important to publicly express how much they “really, really like women.”

    It’s OK, we get it.

  18. But the real news is, Aaron is still a top 3 QB in the league on a perennial Super Bowl contender, with a title and multiple MVPs to his name. Sounds like Jordan is just dying for a little spotlight.

  19. “I don’t understand the hate that everyone has for Aaron Rodgers…….I don’t think I’ve ever seen him do or say anything that should warrant the kind of hatred and disdain that he gets from the majority of NFL fans.”

    It’s just that 90% of the posts on these kind of articles are from Vikings fans, not NFL fans. Viking fans (at least most of the ones on this site) are bitter people. Maybe they fear that they will die without ever seeing a championship, like the beard guy.

  20. Hard to read some of these posts. Aaron Rodgers is a GREAT NFL QB and there are 30 other fan bases who would LOVE to have him. Including those Viking fans who haven’t been to a super bowl in 40 years.

    Packer fans should really appreciate what they’ve had in the QB play they’ve had with Rodgers and Farve. Rodgers has more than filled that HOF’er’s shoes. I only hope the Pats can do as well after Brady finally hangs them up.

  21. I would love to have a relationship with either one of the Rodgers boys. I would have them over for dinner, and I would cook it myself, serve it myself, and happily clean up myself afterwards. In Milwaukee. At 213. Call me.

  22. Man….Keep it in the family. Don’t broadcast family issues all over the world. What exactly did broadcasting this do? Did it somehow help the situation?

  23. I don’t see how failure to be close to someone who’s on the Bachelorette can be seen as anything but a positive.
    And arealistic, you’re starting to forget that you’re posing as a GB fan.

  24. Dude wouldn’t even be on the show were it not for Aaron.

    He was no one in college, one of about 10000 “never were’s” in the NFL – there’s ZERO reason to be on that show – except his brother’s dating Olivia and is a huge star in the NFL.

  25. Let’s not overlook the impact on Aaron’s personal life from that embarrassing, history-making collapse in the nfcgg. That’s gotta sting for quite a while.

  26. Honestly, it’s the worst kept secret in all of sports. I don’t know why he continues to conceal it. Maybe since he plays in an ultra conservative town where men are hunters, fisherman and grill outdoors that they wouldn’t embrace him and his alternative lifestyle. It really doesn’t matter since everyone knows anyhow. Maybe he is miserable hanging around his beard and just longs for his true love.

  27. Wow! It’s like blood in the water during a feeding frenzy. The needy Viking trolls just about choked and spit out their fish sticks when they finally saw a Packer story they could jump on. Happy days indeed.

    “When debate is lost, slander becomes the tool of the losers.”

    Still true.

  28. my team is 4-11 against RoGerz so I’m gonig to insinuate that he’s gay and that’ll be considered an insult…

    I’ll aslo talk about how classless and egotisticial Rogerz is! Right after my witty Jeffrey Dahmer post!

    Ka-Durrh!?

    – every viking fan(all 3 of ’em) with a keyboard on this site.

    /////////////////////////////////

    You were there?

  30. Aaron could be the biggest jerk in the NFL, but what Jordan did was unconscionable. What piece of garbage airs family problems on broadcast television? If your brother/sister did something like this, would you ever speak to them again? And why would Aaron travel back to his hometown to meet some bimbo Jordan meet on a reality show? A bimbo who is still “dating” other men? Maybe Aaron doesn’t want to be a part of this circus.

    I live a half an hour south of Green Bay. I can assure you, the vast majority of us fans wouldn’t care one bit if he were gay. Rumors were spread about Troy Aikmen, Steve Young, Jeff Garcia and Tom Brady, among others being gay, so why are the rumors about Aaron different?

    TBH we are more grateful that he doesn’t beat his 4-year-old kid.

  32. Note to Jordan — God has way more important things to do than take sides in football games.

  33. Green Bay fans will be agreeing with Jordan in a few years after Erin fails to lead the team to any NFC North champions and continues to choke in overtime and big games….

  34. Okay, let me preface this with that I’m a huge Vikes fan…

    But I respect Aaron a ton. You have to because he is one of the greatest at his position. I would bet that most of the athletes that are in the top echelon of their profession are probably not the most pleasant to be around. It takes a little bit of ‘arrogance’ to get to that level so I never mind that in athletes.

    And keep in mind that Aaron plays a TEAM sport. He can only do so much. It’s not like he is a golfer or tennis player, where he could control the entire match. He is reliant on team mates for success, and he is going to demand excellence from said team mates. Doesn’t surprise me one bit that he’s rubbed some the wrong way. Sorry, that’s what winning takes.

    He’s been a Vikings killer of late so of course I don’t like to see that. But like Favre before him, you have to respect the level of play that he brings.

  35. A R is currently at the very top of his game – and, I dare say, keeps getting better. No doubt. But methinks that after this article, most (if there were any doubters to begin with) will no longer have doubts as to why he was NOT chosen by the Niners – with whom he so desperately wanted to play – back when they selected Alex. The key reason then was, as it is now, “…. he came across as too arrogant…” thus the Niners passed on him for Smith who they felt they could “communicate with” better. Seems it is a “in the blood” type malady.

  36. @packsupersoldier (and all the other Packer Trolls)

    Of course, every time a discussion about a PLAYER and his merit/statistics – all Packer fans here have to start taking shots at the VIKINGS, and of COURSE… start talking about “trophies” (as if nothing but a Superbowl counts)

    And your typical selective statistics are interesting too.

    “Rodgers lost twice to the Vikings in 11 games”

    Why not go ALL the way back to his entire tenure?

    Then it’s 5 times out of 16 he has lost to the Vikings.

    Because those stats don’t fit your narrative or memory, huh?

    its strange that the two most unlikeable people in professional sports have the name “A-Rod”
    ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^
    You’re putting Aaron Rodgers in the same category with a proven PED user because of a common nickname? Shame on you!

    **********************
    Dude.. not for nothing. But this is a dumb argument to be having.

    If you are GOING to be debating about the God that Jordan believes in, how the heck do YOU know what is “important” to him.

    And bear in mind He is Omnipotent, Omniscient, and Omnipresent. So… in theological fact.. if he DID care about Football games, he could manage favoring a team/game/person/event while doing ANY-FRIGGING other thing he desired to do at the SAME time without any problem at all..

    You know what, go ahead and have this one buddy. You earned it.

    lol no he isn’t. he’s not even real. keep praying to the magic sky fairy and holding that blankie at night big man.

  42. First off, Wilson is obviously a football player and not a brain surgeon for a reason, second its tough to be the very best by a long shot at something and not be an arrogant prick some of the time. Everyone thinks they would be this great guy if they were him, but its doubtful. Money and fame corrupt.
