Aaron Rodgers no fan of Tony Kornheiser

RodgersGreen Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers went on ESPN Radio in Milwaukee and took a machete (well, verbally, that is) to Pardon the Interruption and former Monday Night Footballanalyst Tony Kornheiser. Among Rodgers comments:

"You know who was better than Tony Kornheiser? Dennis Miller was ten times better. Dennis Miller was a great comedian, but one of the worst Monday Night Football guys ever. And he was ten times better than Tony Kornheiser. His stuff was actually funny. Tony stuff wasn't funny at all. He did no research. We'd sit in those production meetings and he would add absolutely nothing to the conversation. I'd be like, 'What are we doing here? This is stupid.' ... You get in there with Tony and he's asking you all these dumb questions that have no application to the game you are playing or anything you are doing. He's terrible… I don't think he's funny. I don't think he's insightful. I don't think he knows anything about sports.''

KornheiserRodgers, certainly, is entitled to his opinion, although the last sentence ("I don't think he knows anything about sports.'') is just a dumb thing to say. Kornheiser once was regarded as one of America's best sports columnists. One could argue Kornheiser is a bit better at his job than Rodgers is at his. Sure, Rodgers is the first quarterback to throw for 4,000 yards in each of his first two full seasons as a starter, but perhaps he should win a playoff game before he starts ripping into someone he hasn't dealt with directly in two years.
