Aaron Rodgers: 'I'm going to play the way I play'

Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers is sticking to his guns.

He doesn't let the critics get to him.

“I think as far as the criticism goes, I think that’s where some of the comedy comes in to me,” Rodgers said. “You have to find humor in it. Because I get criticized for holding the ball too long and not taking risks, right? So then there’s the risk vs. interception. Then I fake a spike and throw it to Davante and I get criticized for taking risks. So that’s why I said earlier that critics are always going to win as far as getting their criticism out there, because they can make up new things to criticize whenever they want and use stats or feelings or whatever to fit the specific thing they are criticizing.

"I’m going to play the way I play. It’s been pretty successful around here. I’m going to hold onto the ball when I feel like I can, and get out when I feel like I can as well. But I don’t worry too much about the critics. It’s talking out of both sides of their mouth. And that’s why the stuff doesn’t bother me.”
