Aaron Rodgers Doesn't Like Cedric Benson.

The Green Bay Packers just signed Cedric Benson, who powered the Bengals to a first-round playoff lost against the Houston Texans last year, and Pro Bowl Quarterback Aaron Rodgers* is saying all the right things, by which I mean, he's again pointing out that he's not too big a man to carry a grudge.  In a story about Benson, The Official Website Of The 13-Time World Champion Green Bay Packers notes:

Regardless of the backstory, his new teammates sounded welcoming. QuarterbackAaron Rodgers said he has followed Benson’s career as a fellow 2005 draftee, joking that Benson left the “green room” at Radio City Music Hall “a little bit earlier than I did,” a reference to Rodgers’ excruciating, well-publicized wait that lasted until the 24th pick.

That could be a slam on Benson, and should be treated as such, since Rodgers' disdain of his teammates, coaches, and dates (as well as cancer patients) is well-known, so it's not beneath him to point out that Benson got drafted higher but hasn't had the same storied career, but it's also yet another reference by Rodgers to the lingering grudge he has over not being the number one pick in the draft.

So to him, I say (since he seems unable to realize it himself):

Aaron Rodgers.  You feel unloved, or felt unloved, and have spent most of your pro career reminding people of it, and seemingly forgetting that:

You were basically handed the keys to the city, and a historic football franchise, by a management team that then hired a public relations firm to badmouth your predecessor and ensure you would be beloved.

You have been linked to beautiful women and perhaps even dated them.  

You were paid $13,200,000 in 2008 alone to play. a. game.

The team, and coach, and management you keep knocking for letting you fall that far (and the league they play in) have guaranteed you pay of at least $20,000,000.


Guaranteed.  You are 28 years old.  If you live to be 100, you could spend $277,776 per year and not run out of money.

You have been voted the Most Valuable Player by the league you want to keep knocking and reminding that you slipped on draft day.

We all know that you didn't like sitting there until Green Bay picked you.  But keeping in mind everything I just said:

SHUT UP ABOUT IT ALREADY.

If you wanted proof that people want you to play a game for a living, you have it.  If you wanted public recognition that you are God's Gift to Football, you have it.  Fame, fortune, adulation, a spot in the Packer Hall of Fame: it's all yours.  Quit bitching about how much better it should have been.

Because ALSO: In your life, you won the "Insight Bowl," lost the big game against USC in your junior year (blowing it yourself, in part), lost to Texas Tech in the Holiday Bowl, lost your first playoff game as a Packer when you fumbled in overtime, and lost against the Giants last year in round one of the NFC playoffs, becoming only the second Packer quarterback to lose at home in the playoffs.  You are thus, by my count, 5-4 in big games, with a Super Bowl win coming against a team that cared so little about the game they went out drinking all week before it... so maybe you were picked exactly where you belonged.





*Legally, you are required to say Pro Bowl Quarterback before speaking Aaron Rodgers' name.  Also, if you say Aaron Rodgers three times really fast while looking into a mirror, you will disappear from the first round of the playoffs.

He should be happy he didn't end up on some shitty team like the Lions or Browns or Cardinals.
