Jonathan Daniel/Getty Images(MILWAUKEE) — Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers took time on Tuesday to criticize the NFC’s effort, two days after the team’s 59-41 loss to the AFC in the Pro Bowl.

“I’ll be honest with you,” said Rodgers in an interview with ESPN 540 in Milwaukee. “I was a little bit disappointed. I felt like some of the guys on the NFC side embarrassed themselves.”

Rodgers who guided his team to a Super Bowl win last year, started in the first quarter of the game, but did not throw specific players under the bus.

“I was just surprised that some of the guys either didn’t want to play or when they were in there didn’t put any effort into it,” Rodgers said.

With football activity done until spring, Rodgers, the king of the “discount double check,” will now have the rest of the off-season to work on some more commercials for State Farm.
