Aaron Rodgers Blasts His Fellow NFC Players For Their Poor Performance in the 2012 Pro Bowl

Did you watch the 2012 Pro Bowl? We're gonna take a guess here and say...No? Are we right? Of course, we're right! No one watches the Pro Bowl. Of all the all-star games out there, it's easily the worst. No one plays any D. A lot of the league's best players skip out on it because they're prepping for the Super Bowl. And if you've ever watched a Pro Bowl, it's pretty clear that most of the players don't really care about the results of the game—in spite of the fact that the winner takes home $50,000, while the loser only gets $25,000.

At least one guy did care this year, though. And that one guy is Aaron Rodgers. So he just took the time during a radio interview on Tuesday to blast some of his fellow NFC players for not putting forth a good effort during the '12 Pro Bowl, which the AFC won 59-41 on Sunday. "I'll be honest with you," he told ESPN Milwaukee. "I was a little disappointed. I felt like some of the guys on the NFC side embarrassed themselves. There should be some pride involved in a game like that, and I was just surprised by some of the efforts by some of the guys."

Rodgers didn't call any of his fellow players out by name—it's not that serious—but he was clearly upset that the NFC lost. And whether you like the Pro Bowl or not, can you blame him? The guy took just one L from September through December and now he just lost his second game in a row! We'd hate to be the team he plays first next season.
