Aaron Rogers tells the story of how he likes his balls.
The Packers rejected an old NFL legend during the Deflategate scandal on Wednesday, which meant Rogers preferred more air-filled football to his own rules.
“There was a story told during Deflategate that I love to exaggerate football,” Rogers said in a weekly appearance on the Pat McAfee show. “It came from Phil Simms’ comment on the live broadcast.”
Deflategate caught the attention of the country when Tom Brady was disqualified for using a low ball against the Colts in a 2014 (AFC) championship game.
“That’s what happened, we had a production meeting with the CBS crew and Phil Simms said,‘ In the winter, are you intentionally breaking the ball to keep the ball better? “He said.
Rogers, who said he was “surprised” by the question, told Simms that his hands were too big and he couldn’t throw a flat ball because of the strong pressure. He prefers an over-inflated ball to a low bottle, he said.
“Then [Simms] goes on the air and tells me I like the over-inflating of the balls, “Rogers said. has become something. “
Thus, this statement was used by Tom Brady’s attorneys in Deflategate litigation.
“From the question at the case production meeting, ‘No, I can’t throw a flat ball,'” he said. , Said Rogers. “These are funny stories that can happen from time to time.”
The 37-year-old revealed that she had nothing to do with Simms and told him and her analyst that she “liked” her son Chris.
Rogers and Packers visit the Bears on Sunday the 6th.
