Adam Schefter has epic response to Aaron Rodgers hate
ESPN’s Adam Schefter has been snapped up by Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers numerous times this season.
In what has become one of the most interesting feuds of the offseason, ESPN analyst Adam Schefter and Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers have each other.
The Shifty-Rodgers feud began fairly recently with Rodgers making an anti-media tirade about a month ago. In the days leading up to Rodgers’ dark slump, some reporters (including Schefter) assumed that the Packers’ quarterback started slumping on a certain day of the week.
Their information turned out to be wrong, and Rodgers went on The Pat McAfee Show to criticize Shifter, Ian Rapoport, and others for not getting the facts right. These reporters were clearly not in Rodgers’ “inner circle”, and Rodgers had no qualms in criticizing them for spreading misinformation.
On Wednesday, in a surprising interview about his future, Rodgers again told McAfee that the league’s most esteemed reporters had failed yet again.
There were rumors that Rodgers provided the New York Jets with a wish list of free agents he wanted to play with, including players Allen Lazard, Odell Beckham Jr., and Allen Lazard.
Shifter wasn’t alone in publishing these reports; ESPN’s Diana Rossini was the main source, but Rossini clearly wasn’t in Rodgers’ inner circle either.
Aaron Rodgers is fed up with Adam Shifter and the NFL media
While appearing on McAfee, Rodgers texted Shifter to “lose my phone number.” And he was so mean.
Schefty didn’t miss a beat and hit back at Rodgers in the most Shifter-like manner:
CONFIRMED: Aaron Rodgers really doesn’t like Adam Schefter, and Schefter probably doesn’t care.
Rodgers’ notoriously brash and boorish demeanor hasn’t made him so many friends in the NFL media world. In fact, Pat McAfee may be his confidante and only one, and he’s turned into even more of a confidant this season as Rodgers gets his feelings off his chest week after week on McAfee’s show.
What do we know about Rodgers’ excitement so far? He’s ready to play for the Jets, loves the Packers’ organization (but may secretly resent them), and doesn’t trust 99.9 percent of the NFL media.
Sounds true of a typical Aaron Rodgers Tuesday. Get ready for the 2023 season full of drama.
