Like many other NFL players, coaches, scouts, executives and fans, Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers took some time out of his day on Thursday to watch Johnny Manziel’s highly-publicized pro day. Manziel, who decided to put a unique spin on his workout by wearing a helmet and shoulder pads, threw for hundreds of scouts and coaches.
The workout was covered by both ESPN and the NFL Network. We don’t know which one Rodgers was watching, but he wasn’t impressed.
2 of the 3 guys commenting on this workout right now have opinions that shouldn't be taken very seriously.

ESPN rolled out Todd McShay, Ed Werder and Bill Polian as its team of analysts. NFL Network had Mike Mayock, Paul Burmeister and Kurt Warner. If Rodgers was watching NFL Network, he had to have been saying Warner is the only one with knowledge. Warner has been to three Super Bowls and has a ring. There’s no way Rodgers would group him in with the others.
If Rodgers was watching ESPN, my guess is he was saying Polian is the only one who should be taken seriously. Werder is simply a reporter and McShay is a draft analyst, whereas Polian spent a number of years as a scout, personnel director, general manager, and team president in the NFL.
In any event, we love when Rodgers criticizes people on Twitter. He’s the best.
