There has been a lot of criticism directed at Aaron Rodgers after his fake spike play, a play that without a doubt led them to a victory over the Miami Dolphins. One of the loudest and most vocal has been ESPN's Skip Bayless who laid into Rodgers following the win over Miami. "Aaron Rodgers is getting applauded for something that could've made him the goat of the game instead of the hero of the game," Bayless railed over the airwaves Monday during ESPN First Take. "… You ask me how impressed I am? Zero. Zero." He wasn't done there however. "Aaron Rodgers does something that he's now applauded for. 'He went Dan Marino.' This was as high-risk and maybe as dumb of a risky play as you could attempt at this point with no timeouts left." And perhaps the most absurd comment of them all from Bayless? "Tom Brady would never have to resort to these type of plays. Tom Brady wouldn't do that." The great thing about Rodgers' is he has his out platform to sound off, and that's exactly what he did on his weekly radio show for ESPN Milwaukee. Rodgers didn't mention Bayless by name but he had this to say: "As far as the criticism goes, I think that's where some of the comedy comes in, to me," Rodgers said on his radio show. "You have to find humor in it because I get criticized for holding the ball too long and not taking risks – so then there's the risk versus interceptions – but then I fake a spike and throw it to Davante and get criticized for taking risks. Critics are always going to win as far as getting their criticism out there, because they can make up things to criticize whenever they want and use stats or feelings or whatever to fit their specific thing that they're 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 can, and get out when I feel like I can as well. I don't worry so much about the critics, because it's talking I for one am with Rodgers on this one.
