Aaron Rodgers is not afraid of going after his critics, especially not Rex Ryan. The former Jets head coach had some success in the early 2010s and was also known for his well-documented foot-fetish, which was outed when a video showed Ryan admiring his wife’s feet.
Recently, Rodgers decided to make a bold move to show his foot in the middle of a press conference when he was describing the extent of the injury to his toe.
When Rogers made his weekly appearance on ‘The Pat McAfee Show,’ Rodgers took a slight at Ryan when speaking on his decision to show his foot.
“I think Rex Ryan probably enjoyed it,” Rodgers said.
Despite Rodgers antics, he has the Packers sitting in a great spot, currently leading the NFC North. We will surely hear a response from Ryan, but he has yet to address the comment. The two relationships with each other have definitely not gotten better.
Rodgers, per Awful Announcing, believes the Packers are leaking his medical information.
“Look, again, with these reports, I don’t know where they’re coming from. I don’t know who’s talking. It seems like there’s certain coaches that may have friends in the media that they don’t realize are actually just trying to report things.” Hawk asks “Guys on the Green Bay staff, you’re saying?” And Rodgers says “Oh yeah, you’ve known about that for a while, AJ, guys who had their people that they would leak stuff to.”
Rodgers says “The surgery would immobilize the toe, and so then that would be an issue the entire season I’d be dealing with. It would avoid any further displacement, but it would immobilize the toe. So we’re hoping that with a couple weeks here we can get enough healing that maybe I can avoid doing that. We’ll reassess, like I said, probably later this week and early next week, with the ultimate goal of not having to do surgery, if this thing heals up a bit better and I make it through a few more weeks, and it doesn’t bother me for the rest of the season.”
