Aaron Rodgers Man Up
September 18, 2012 by staff
Aaron Rodgers Man Up, Green Bay Packers tight end Jermichael Finley’s agent started Friday by calling out Bear quarterback Jay Cutler, and ended slighting the man who throws his client the ball.
Finley’s agent, Blake Baratz, first tweeted criticism of Jay Cutler’s press conference:
“Jay Cutler, u serious in ur press conf last night?U sound like a 6 yr old who just had his animal crackers taken. Quit being a [expletive], own up,” Baratz tweeted, adding: “There’s a major difference & drop off in leadership from Manning, Brees, Brady, to the next best QB’s in the league. Cutler doesn’t get it.”
When asked why he didn’t include Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers on his leadership list, Baratz tweeted:
ARod is a great QB he isn’t a great leader. There’s a major difference. Leaders take the blame & make every1 better. He doesn’t.
Finley, who ESPNanlyst John Gruden dubbed “Road Rage,” came out in June and stressed the importance of having a relationship with Rodgers in the Journal-Sentinel.
“Having an off-season, having chemistry with your quarterback is a big key to success,” Finley said. “I promise you.”
Baratz’s comments are strange for a litany of reasons. A few of the more compelling include:
1. Baratz deftly undermines Finley’s summer comments about chemistry in 140 characters.
2. Why would a man who makes his living representing NFL players, disparage NFL players publicly?I
3. t’s in Baratz’s, best interest to have Aaron Rodgers happy, confident, and willing to throw to his client.
4. It’s just a bad opinion. Rodgers is an elite quarterback.
