Aaron Rodgers claps back at QBs mocking him for beer chugging
Aaron Rodgers has been relentlessly mocked since he failed to successfully chug a beer when he attended an Eastern Conference Finals game last month, but it sounds like the two-time NFL MVP is tired of hearing it from rival quarterbacks.
A reporter asked Rodgers at minicamp on Tuesday about the flak he has taken for his chugging skills, some of which has come from other players at his position. Rodgers response was essentially that he is better at things that matter more, such as making plays on the football field.
#Packers QB Aaron Rodgers jokes about the chugging prowess shown by other NFL QBs:
"For some of them, there’s finally a talent where they can say they are better than me." #Packers

Detroit Lions quarterback Matthew Stafford was one of the first to show off how much better he is than Rodgers at slamming a beer, and Mitchell Trubisky also has Rodgers beat.

The trolling has even extended to other sports, so you can understand why Rodgers finally felt the need to defend himself. Unfortunately, the football side of things has not gone too well for the Packers in recent years, either. Perhaps that will change in 2019 and people will forget all about Rodgers’ struggles with putting back suds.
