Aaron Rodgers takes ‘Monday Night Football’ dig at ESPN


Aaron Rodgers isn’t a fan of excess chatter.

During his weekly appearance Tuesday on Pat McAfee’s SiriusXM radio show, the Green Bay Packers quarterback spoke about his primetime football viewing, noting he’s become quite friendly with the mute button.

“I didn’t see a whole lot of that, it was on for a little bit with the sound off, which is how I’ve watched a lot of games on ESPN over the last few years,” Rodgers responded when asked if he caught the New Orleans Saints’ win over the Los Angeles Chargers on “Monday Night Football.”

Rodgers’ comments prompted laughter from McAfee, who still has a role with ESPN and once openly campaigned for a spot in the “Monday Night Football” booth.

“I like a lot of people at ESPN, I really do. I love Kenny Mayne, Kenny’s one of my all-time favorites,” Rodgers said. “No, but, you know I enjoy watching football, I enjoy watching Thursday night stuff and Sunday night and Monday night, but I enjoy also listening to music during the games and not necessarily all the commentary.”

Steve Levy, Brian Griese, and Louis Riddick are part of ESPN’s “Monday Night Football” booth this season, replacing the much-maligned Booger McFarland and Joe Tessitore. That duo initially included Jason Witten, who returned to the NFL — first with the Cowboys, now with the Raiders — after one year with the network.
