Rodgers won't criticize his O-linemen. I guess it is somewhat reassuring that AR is not a complete idiot. Eric Dickerson was the last moron to complain about his offensive line, wasn't he? Anybody more recent?

I don't have an offensive line. You must be mistaking me for an NFL player. You flatter me. Thanks.

Every line you type is offensive.

Well if he wants to be the leader of this team, he needs to speak up.

Why criticize the people who protect you?

There has been a couple sacks that Rodgers stood in the pocket too long, but just a couple.

If he ever did come out and say anything he would probably compliment them in regards to how hard they work and the effort they give every game, because he is that kind of player/person.

There are ways to lead that most players understand. Publicly criticizing your teammates is not one of them. Criticizing and critiquing play, even in private, is best left to the coaching staff. Players should play and coaches should coach. Aaron Rodgers is being a good teammate and leader.

Peyton called out his line after a playoff loss to the Steelers back in 2005. That was the infamous Polamalu interception replay fiasco and the Bettis fumble game.

If Rodgers ever disses his O-line, I hope he has the sense to do it following a playoff loss. As long as TT is in Green Bay, I doubt Aaron will have the chance.

Haha I echo your sentiment, but it was still uncool to call the guys out. 5 sacks had His Over-mediated Specialness in a foul mood. A home loss (with home field advantage) and a 23% 3rd down conversion ratio at home probably had something to do with it too, not to mention the crucial interception that wasn't, but everybody knew was, that seemed to turn the Steelers into Amerca's darlings, rather than the blessed Colts.

Every QB will make some mistakes. Many times those mistakes can be singled out in a loss. It is foolish for any QB to start the blame game.

Tom Brady gets in guys faces all the time if they are not performing, it's what the leader of team does.
