Rodgers’ interaction with hosts ‘PFT Commenter’ Eric Sollenberger and ‘Big Cat’ Dan Katz came up where one of the hosts applauded his tattoo while Eric jokes about needles.

Aaron Rodgers might be a chilled-out person. But he certainly does not think that everything should be taken on a funny note. During the Pardon My Take podcast, the Packers QB resorted to Eric Sollenberger’s humor about immunization jokes that went too far for him. Rodgers grinned momentarily after Sollenberger’s question, but his response was solemn. He said, “I mean, I know you guys are f*cking around, but I don’t find that part funny. I really don’t.”

After Rodgers’ messed-up remarks, Big Cat muttered under his breath, “Oh s*it,” and the host moved hesitantly in his chair. He then hopped in to change the conversation after a brief pause and transitioned on to sharp football queries.
