No one on the Packers gets Aaron Rodgers' jokes

Monday January 5th, 2015

Aaron Rodgers may have a case to make as the best quarterback in the NFL, but he probably can't call himself the funniest.

The Wall Street Journal has a story about Rodgers' sense of humor, and apparently his teammates don't find him all that funny. 

"His jokes are what we call ‘Algebra 2,'" former teammate Daryn Colledge told the Journal. "I think a lot of people don’t get it."

Rodgers' sense of humor seems fairly diverse. He'll make random references to The Princess Bride and quiz teammates on presidential middle names. He'll glare at guys until they ask him what's wrong, then he'll start laughing.

He also keeps opponents off-guard by talking college football with them. "He went to Cal, so he just walks up and asks me how Washington is doing," Buccaneers linebacker Mason Foster told the Journal. "In between plays."

The story in the Journal is by Kevin Clark, who seems to have a knack for finding off-beat things about NFL quarterbacks. Last month, Clark had a story about how Andrew Luck congratulates opponents after big hits.
