Kansas City Chiefs tight end Travis Kelce starred in a vaccine commercial, New York Jets quarterback Aaron Rodgers took a shot at it.
Rodgers was discussing the Jets’ Sunday night loss to the Chiefs during his weekly appearance on The Pat McAfee Show on Tuesday.
The defending Super Bowl champions were played well by the Jets, and limited Kelce’s abilities as a dynamic playmaker, which was a crucial factor according to Rodgers.
I think there’s some sentiment that there’s some sort of moral victory out there that we hung with the champs and that our defense played well,
and [QB Patrick Mahomes] didn’t have a crazy game and Mr. Pfizer, we kind of shut him down a little bit. He didn’t have a crazy-impact game. Obviously, he had some yards; but I felt like for the most part, we played really tough on defense — especially the last three quarters.
Rodgers continued to breakdown Sunday’s game with a slight grin on his face as he saw McAfee and former player A.J. Hawk laughing at the name.
That, Rodgers has been a vocal skeptic of the vaccines is no secret.
Immediately after Rodgers tore his Achilles, commentator Keith Olbermann mocked Rodgers’ anti-vaccine views, Rodgers pointed out the number of booster shots people took.
Other than Rodgers, Conservative commentators Megyn Kelly and Charlie Kirk are “disturbed” by Kelce endorsing the flu and Covid-19 vaccine.
Aaron Rodgers could not play against the Chiefs in Week 9 of the NFL season in 2021 after testing positive for Covid.
He was unvaccinated, and he lied when asked about his status in training camp.
He admitted to misleading vaccine comments.
I shared an opinion that’s polarizing,
I get it. And I misled some people about my status, which I take full responsibility of, those comments. But in the end, I have to stay true to who I am and what I’m about. I stand behind the things that I said.
NFL later fined the Packers $300,000 and issued $14,650 fines to Rodgers and wide receiver Allen Lazard for violations of league and players’ union protocols.
