Rodgers on Sanchez' GQ spread: 'Embarrassing'

This offseason, Jets quarterback Mark Sanchez posed for an, um, interesting photo shoot for GQ. The juiciest news that came from his feature piece was that he "wanted to fight" coach Rex Ryan.

Well, unless you count the photos themselves, anyway. Those were -- according to Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers -- "embarrassing."

"I mean look at this -- that's embarrassing," Rodgers said on the "The Aaron Rodgers Show" with Jason Wilde of ESPN Milwaukee. "Page 94 of the GQ thing here, that's terrible."

Page 94, for those interested, looks like ... this:



"This is not really my style," Rodgers said. "I like my anonymity. I like my privacy. I like to be the quarterback during the week and during the offseason be able to do what I want to do and not be in the public eye."

That's totally fair for Rodgers to say (re: style; embarrassing might be a different story) and it's his prerogative on how he wants to dress when being photographed and whether he wants to pose for magazine shoots.

I wouldn't do what Sanchez did either, but the gig in New York and the gig in Green Bay are two completely different ballgames. If you're the quarterback in the Big Apple and you try to avoid the press, you'll get more press. If you're the quarterback in Green Bay you can do whatever you want as long as you have success on the field.

In short, it's just a different world, and it's not how Rodgers rolls.

"When you hang out with 'Hollywood' people, those people are able to stay in that moment and stay in their Hollywood fame, and it's absolutely ridiculous," Rodgers said. "They never come out of that mode -- that 'We're famous' mode. You can't have a normal conversation."

Yes, but in place of that "normal conversation" is "aggressive bathtub frolicking," so it's really a toss-up.

Yeah, and how many magazine photo shoots has Eli Manning done?  Don't get me wrong, if that's Sanchez' thing, then more power to him....but don't pretend that kind of stuff is a requirement for a NY QB.
