Aaron Rodgers on “piss poor” criticism of young WRs: It’s not personal; I’m trying to win games

“I hope we can hear comments or read comments and not get offended by things.
1, and I’m going to say and do the things that I feel like can advance us.
It’s going to be tough at some points.
It’s not a popularity contest all the time.
Obviously, as a human, you like being liked and appreciated, but I’m trying to win games because that’s my job.” Rodgers worked with the young wideouts on the scout team last week since he wasn’t going to play in the first preseason game.
Fifth-round pick Marquez Valdes-Scantling said after making five catches for 101 yards and a touchdown against the Titans that he took Rodgers’ criticism to heart.
“Again, I don’t feel like when you make a statement like that that there needs to be some big response or feelings hurt or offense that somebody takes with it,” Rodgers said.
The guys played well in the game, made some plays.
It’s been a good week of practice, I think.
I don’t think that’s a response to anything I’ve said.

I care about winning, No. 1, and I’m going to say and do the things that I feel like can advance us. It’s going to be tough at some points. It’s not a popularity contest all the time. Obviously, as a human, you like being liked and appreciated, but I’m trying to win games because that’s my job.”

Rodgers worked with the young wideouts on the scout team last week since he wasn’t going to play in the first preseason game. He didn’t name names but showed his distaste for the sloppiness both during the practice and afterward.
