We wrote about Keyshawn Johnson’s “How Deep is Your Brain” interview with Aaron Rodgers, but while we were trying to get the piece posted, Keyshawn went deep once more in a new interview with the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel’s Peter Bukowski. The podcast features a wide ranging discussion from the football and TV star, touching on Aaron’s love of Costco, his relationship with his sister, and his childhood with his mom, the late Joy Jones.
Keyshawn Johnson has been on a bit of a streak recently, having recently made some of the most startling predictions in sports history. Just last week he had some insight into the mind of QB Aaron Rodgers. The former NFL wide receiver has become one of the most respected insiders in the sports world, so it’s no surprise that he had some interesting things to say about Rodgers.
Deshaun Watson feels rejected, Russell Wilson feels unprotected and Aaron Rodgers feels unappreciated. As a result, fans of the Houston Texans, Seattle Seahawks and Green Bay Packers are anxious because they don’t know if their quarterbacks will produce touchdowns or tantrums in September. Fortunately, a man who is almost a master at drawing unnecessary attention has an explanation for the behavior NFL fans are seeing from quarterbacks this unusual offseason.
Keyshawn Johnson admits to being a diva
The tense standoff between Aaron Rodgers and the Green Bay Packers is something rarely seen in the NFL until this offseason. But the Houston Texans and Seattle Seahawks also have problems with their quarterbacks. | Dylan Buell/Getty Images COMPARED TO: Former Packers CEO Ron Wolfe blames Aaron Rodgers. We have many wards that play in theleague. Keyshawn Johnson was a good receiver in the NFL for 11 seasons after having 168 catches and 16 touchdowns in two years at UCLA. Johnson’s outstanding performance in college earned him the honor of being the first pick in the 1996 NFL Draft. Johnson’s performance with the New York Jets increased in each of his four seasons, finishing with 305 catches and 31 touchdowns. The Jets traded Johnson to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, where he caught another 298 balls in four seasons. After two seasons in Dallas and one in Carolina, Johnson retired in 2006 with 814 catches and 64 touchdowns. Like his contemporaries Terrell Owens and Chad Ochocinco, Johnson carried the diva label almost from the beginning. Wrote an autobiography titled Just Give Me the Damn Ball . Like occupying two cubicles in the locker room. I’m a diva and I have no problem with that, if you want to call me a diva, call me a diva, Johnson said. However, he would like to see this label applied fairly. To do this, you need to name Watson, Wilson and Rogers.
Johnson says quarterbacks like Rodgers are the real divas
. COMPARED TO: Green Bay Packers need to give offensive lineman Aaron Rodgers a dose of his own medicine Watson saw his relationship with the Houston Texans irreparably damaged even before the civil lawsuits and police investigations came to light this offseason. In short, Watson wanted to have something to say while the Texans rebuilt their coaching staff and office. When he didn’t get it, he wanted to leave. Wilson seemed to doubt veteran head coach Pete Carroll’s ability to create an offensive line that could protect him, and Rodgers confused Green Bay fans right after the season-ending loss by saying his departure might have been inevitable. While the drama surrounding Wilson has subsided, the situation surrounding Rogers has escalated. According to recent reports, the Packers’ quarterback wanted to change general managers before committing to play in 2021. If there is a conflict between a star QB and a general manager, the team president can take the player’s side. But the Packers have had their QB wait for Jordan Love, and fans still don’t agree. Quarterbacks are some of the most selfish guys the National Football League has ever had at that position. But you never hear about them because everyone talks about them as leaders, Johnson said on ESPN’s radio program Keyshawn, JWill & Zubin , Mediaite.com reported. Maybe he’s right.
Double standards for Rogers and other QBs are a reality
. COMPARED TO: Aaron Rodgers’ joke doesn’t get the laughs from three NFL teams Johnson turned to former Newsday reporter Alan Khan, his co-anchor at ESPN. I’ve always said they’re the most selfish guys, Johnson said as he continued to evaluate quarterbacks. But it all depends on how you, the author, write it. You’re the writer, you write it a certain way, and it forms the personality of that quarterback. Johnson is right. In a 2010 Bleacher Report article, Hall of Fame coach Jimmy Johnson recalled how he turned away a player who was always late to Dallas Cowboys events and fell asleep during the meeting. Well, when people ask: What if it was Troy Aikman? I’d say so: Troy, wake up, Johnson said. The Packers danced cautiously around Brett Favre during his indecision in the summer of 2007. If ego is to blame for Green Bay’s current problems with Rodgers, they should look at the fact that he learned on the feet of his other quarterback instead of Keyshawn Johnson.
