3 Reasons Aaron Rodgers should make Eagles fans appreciate Carson Wentz
2. Who would you rather have in the locker room?
There are teammates, and there are guys who make teammates feel more like fans in their own locker room. It’s hard to imagine what it must feel like to walk into a team meeting and see Kobe Bryant or LeBron James. Yeah, you’re on the team, but that’s Kobe man!
Some guys have managed to take the all-world aesthetic and make even the most insignificant players on the roster feel like one of the guys. Drew Brees does that. Peyton Manning did that. Carson Wentz does that. Heck, LeBron even does that. Do you know who didn’t do that? Brett Favre and Aaron Rodgers.
There are even stories about Favre having his own office at Lambeau Field. Now, we never saw Aaron Rodgers do this, but doesn’t he just seem like the guy that would take a separate bus to the game if he could? We’re talking about a guy who got his coach fired, didn’t get along with his new coach, and doesn’t even talk to members of his own family.
Aaron Rodgers is a more talented Jeff George or Jay Cutler. Sure, Wentz has had his detractors, but we believe those to be few and far between. We can say one thing with certainty. We don’t definitively know if it was Nelson Agholor and Alshon Jeffery that set out to get him, but we know someone or maybe two people didn’t have his back. We also know that there are more guys that love Wentz than guys who don’t.
More of Wentz’s teammates love him than not. Can we say that about Mr. Rodgers?
