Shannon Sharpe Has Blunt Message About Packers QB Aaron Rodgers

Shannon Sharpe

Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers is under fire once again after comments he made yesterday on the Pat McAfee Show

When talking about Green Bay's recent five-game losing streak, Rodgers felt the need to say that "I'm still the reigning, defending two-time MVP." 

Fox Sports' Shannon Sharpe took exception to Rodgers' remarks, calling the comments "despicable" and claiming that his previous accomplishments have nothing to do with where the Packers stand this season.

"I’ve never heard in 30 years someone in a losing streak mention what they are. It’s all about him," Sharpe said Wednesday on Undisputed

After suffering a 15-9 loss to the Detroit Lions this past Sunday, the Packers have fallen to 3-6 on the season. 

Coming off of five consecutive losses, Shannon Sharpe believes Rodgers' recent comments are just another example of the quarterback "making things about himself" instead of working through struggles with his team. 

Sharpe also notes that the Packers' next three opponents are the Cowboys, Titans, and Eagles, who combined this season carry a record of 19-5. 

If Rodgers hopes to bring the Packers out of their slump, he'll likely need to turn his play around very quickly. The quarterback posted his worst showing of the season against Detroit last week, throwing three costly interceptions near the goal line.

The Packers, desperate to avoid falling to 3-7 on the year, are at home against the Cowboys this Sunday.
