Donald Driver says he wasn’t talking about Aaron Rodgers

Donald Driver Aaron RodgersLifetime Green Bay Packers wide receiver Donald Driver joined the chorus of those questioning the leadership of Aaron Rodgers, but then he backtracked from his remarks.

In an interview with ESPN Radio on Thursday, Driver took a stab at interpreting what former Packers receiver Greg Jennings meant when he said it was difficult for Rodgers to hold himself accountable. Driver, who said Jennings spent more time with Rodgers than he did, believes Jennings’ issue may have been that Rodgers would not take the fall for his receivers when the receivers made mistakes. Maybe Driver and Jennings feel like that’s one of the responsibilities of being a leader.

Even though Driver made the comments on the radio and was clearly talking about his ex-teammate, the now-retired receiver quickly addressed his comments via his Twitter account, denying he was talking about Rodgers and blaming the media.

Seriously Driver, that’s pathetic. Just man up and own your comments. You were clearly saying Rodgers doesn’t take the fall for his receivers. That’s fine. At least now there is a concrete example of what Jennings and Jermichael Finley’s agent may have been talking about.

I seriously wonder how these guys can have so many problems with the best quarterback in the league, but if they’re going to open their mouths, they need to stand by it.
