Aaron Rodgers ripping young receivers shows real leadership
Aaron Rodgers made headlines yesterday when he publicly ripped some of his young wide receivers for not practicing up to his standards. Colin has criticized Rodgers for being passive aggressive in the past, but he thinks his direct, aggressive approach shows he’s grown as a leader. He’d like to see more soundbites like this from Andrew Luck, instead of constantly taking the blame for everything when his teammates aren’t doing their part.
Bad look for Baker on ‘Hard Knocks’
The new season of HBO’s long-running NFL docuseries Hard Knocks debuted last night, and this year they’ve descended on Browns camp. One scene from the show featured a mic’d up conversation with #1 overall pick Baker Mayfield and Hue Jackson where Jackson questioned why Mayfield was showing up to the facility after veteran Tyrod Taylor, to which Mayfield didn’t have a great answer. Colin thought it wasn’t a great look for Baker, who looked like he wasn’t as all in as a franchise QB needs to be. Even if there is a good explanation, the optics are bad.
