Aaron Rodgers defies the long-running Phil Sims narrative


Aaron Rodgers is setting the story straight on how he likes his balls.

The Packers quarterback dismissed the old NFL legend from the time of the “Deflategate” controversy on Wednesday, claiming that Rodgers preferred his footballs to being more air-conditioned than the rules allowed.

Rodgers said during his weekly appearance, “There was a narrative used during Deflategate. I like football overruns”The Pat McAfee Show. “” And this is from a comment made by Phil Sims in a live broadcast. “

“Deflate Gate” caught the nation’s attention when Tom Brady was suspended for his use of low inflated balls against the Colts in the 2014 (AFC) Championship Game.

“This is what happened. We had a production meeting with the CBS staff and Phil Simms said, ‘In the winter, do you deliberately stretch the balls to get a better grip of football?’

Rodgers, who was “stunned” by the question, told Sims that he could not throw the ball flat because of his big hands and strong grip. He said he wants a low inflated ball and a high inflated ball.

“Then [Simms] Broadcasts and tells I like oversized balls, ”Rodgers said. Despite being pushed back at that meeting, Sims “decided to tell the story on national television.

So much so that this statement was used by Tom Brady’s lawyers during a “deflate gate” court hearing.

“How can things go from a production meeting question … to me being told, ‘No, I can’t throw a flat ball,’ and I’ve overstepped the footballs, used as a defense in a court case,” said Rodgers.

The 37-year-old made it clear he had no problem with Sims, saying he “enjoyed” him and his analyst son, Chris.

Rodgers and Packers visit the Bears on Sunday in Week 6.
