It all started with what seemed like an innocent tweet and a shot at Bears QB Jay Cutler from NFL agent Blake Baratz following the Packers win over Chicago.
"There's a major difference & drop off in leadership from Manning, Brees, Brady, to the next best QB's in the league. Cutler doesn't get it," wrote Baratz on the social media web site.
Baratz represents Packers LB Desmond Bishop and TE Jermichael Finley as well as many other NFL players on other teams. On Twitter, Baratz was asked why Green Bay QB Aaron Rodgers wasn't near the top of his leadership list.
"ARod is a great QB he isn't a great leader. There's a major difference. Leaders take the blame & make every1 better. He doesn't," Baratz responded which set off a firestorm of debate on the national sports scene.
Thursday was Rodgers' first opportunity to address those remarks, not that he seemed eager to do so.
"There's no point in having a reaction to it," Rodgers said in front of his locker. "I don't have a reaction to it. It's not an issue."
Rodgers was then asked if he felt the need to talk to Finley about it since it came from the Packers tight end's agent.
"Regardless of who it was it's not something that we worry about in this locker room," Rodgers responded. "It's not even something where I felt like I needed to have a sit- down conversation with Jermichael about because it didn't come from him."
Finley spoke briefly to reporters in the locker room Thursday and said he did not share the same opinion of Rodger's leadership that his agent does. When asked how much of that opinion was formulated by the Packers tight end Finley responded: "zero percent of it."
Many teammates went on the defensive when it came to supporting their offensive leader.
"Somebody outside of this room doesn't have the proper judgment to talk about leadership skills within this locker room," said Packers guard T.J. Lang. "They way I feel about it if you have never been in here, you are not one of our teammates, and you have no right to call out anybody's leadership."
"We know who the leader in this room is, especially on offense," said Packers WR Jordy Nelson. "He's a guy that is going to lead us where we go on and off the field. In meeting rooms he's spoken up, he knows the offense inside out and he knows what he wants. He's going to hold everyone accountable, just like we are going to hold him accountable."
Head Coach Mike McCarthy also pushed aside the issue saying he doesn't "get involved in ignorant comments on social media," and that he has a "healthy locker room."
The big reason this isn't an issue, is that Rodgers isn't making it one.
"Honestly it's something I am very comfortable with, my leadership style. And I feel like the guys in the locker room are as well. So it's not something we are going to spend any time thinking about."
In other words, time to talk...or tweet about something else.
