Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers regrets (sort of) savaging former Monday Night Football analyst and ESPN talking head Tony Kornheiser and current MNF color man Ron Jaworski earlier in the week.
Rodgers, who called Kornheiser “terrible” amongst other things, revealed his feelings for the Pardon The Interruption co-host in a recent interview with ESPN Radio Milwaukee:
“Tony stuff wasn’t funny at all. He did no research. We’d sit in those production meetings and he would add absolutely nothing to the conversation. I’d be like, ‘What are we doing here? This is stupid.’… You get in there with Tony and he’s asking you all these dumb questions that have no application to the game you are playing or anything you are doing. He’s terrible… I don’t think he’s funny. I don’t think he’s insightful. I don’t think knows anything about sports.”
Rodgers also took time to blast Jaworski, who he still holds a grudge against Jaws for how he handled his draft day analysis:
“I like him, but, when I was coming out, he did the worst segment in the history of TV about me talking about my fundamentals. It was not even close to anywhere near my fundamentals. The first time I met him, someone introduced me to him and I said, ‘Yeah I know him. He’s the guy who ripped me before the draft.’ The rest of the night he told me how great I was. I was like, ‘I know your song and dance.’ And now he loves me.”
The Pro Bowl quarterback sang a modified tune today. Rodgers told the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel that he should not have discussed such a matter in that setting and regrets it happening.
While he did not want to offend anyone, he did not retract his statements.
Thus, he still thinks Kornheiser is terrible and on par comedically with Emo Philips. Well played Aaron, well played.
