Green Bay Packers quarterback and vibes chaser Aaron Rodgers appeared on Monday’s episode of Pardon My Take, joining podcast hosts PFT Commenter and Big Cat.
Opposite the Big J, in-depth analysis from OutKick’s Joe Kinsey that delves into Rodgers’ double-life as a quarterback and psychedelic socialite, the interview focused on Rodgers’ vaccination storyline from last season.
Like many a-interview featuring the Super Bowl-winning QB and four-time NFL MVP, the conversation egged Rodgers for choosing immunization over vaccination.
Rodgers spoke on his transparent platform about remaining unvaccinated.
“I think in general, I’d like to present myself how I see myself. So unapologetically authentic, you know?” Rodgers said, as relayed by Fox News Digital. “You like me or don’t like me — that’s not my concern at this point.”
Rodgers also gave an underhanded nod to the hosts, who are known for tugging on that immunization joke throughout, and beyond, Rodgers’ COVID saga.
“You know, my concern is just speaking the truth, and, you know, people say, ‘Oh, immunization, vaccination!’” Rodgers added, paired with some mimicry of the two.
PFT Commenter prodded back at Rodgers.
“How many people do you think you killed? What’s your count?” asked PFT, with his co-host adding his two cents. “How many grandmothers? Let’s just do grandmothers,” Big Cat, the raging Bears fan, asked.
Rodgers let an awkward pause go before responding.
“I mean, I know you guys are f***ing around, but I don’t find that part funny. I really don’t,” Rodgers said.
As the hosts tried casually shaking off Rodgers’ pointed feedback by calling his decision a “jailable” offense, Rodgers pulled that thread with a reminder of the vitriol he faced for his decision.
“And probably a lot of people said, ‘F**k, yeah, put him in jail. Get that liar in jail,'” Rodgers admitted.
Even after 17 seasons in the NFL, Rodgers has been immune to the atrophy that plagues ordinary players and is still playing his best football at age 38.
