Fox sports analyst and retired Steelers quarterback, Terry Bradshaw, berated Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers for deceiving the public about getting vaccinated against COVID-19.

In August, Rodgers said he was "immunized," but the truth surfaced after he tested positive for COVID-19.

He subsequently missed the Packers' loss to the Kansas City Chiefs on Sunday.

Fox NFL analysts Jimmy Johnson, Howie Long, and Michael Strahan expressed their disappointment in Rodgers while on-site at the Naval Academy in Annapolis on Sunday.

But Terry Bradshaw did not hold back in his criticism.



"I'd give Aaron some advice," began Bradshaw. "It would've been nice if he had just come to the naval academy and learned how to be honest."

He then addressed the disgraced quarterback and said:

"You lied to everyone."




Bradshaw also criticized Rodgers for his use of the livestock dewormer drug Ivermectin–which the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) did not authorize for treating or preventing COVID-19.

Bradshaw continued:

"Unfortunately, we've got players that pretty much think only about themselves and I'm extremely disappointed in the actions of Aaron Rodgers."









The three-time NFL MVP player refused to apologize and own up to his mistake when he contracted the viral pathogen.

Instead, he lashed out at critics who denounced him for being unvaccinated, and was consequently lambasted for his misguided defense.



On Friday, Rodgers said on SiriusXM's The Pat McAfee Show:

"I believe strongly in bodily autonomy and the ability to make choices for your body, not to have to acquiesce to some woke-culture-crazed group of individuals who say you have to do something."




Former Raiders star Howie Long also criticized Rodgers for being "selfish" for jeopardizing his team by missing out on critical games and simultaneously putting the health of his teammates at risk.

Long said:

"I agree with Aaron when he says, 'What I do with my body is a personal decision."
"But it ceases to be a personal decision when you take part in being a part of a football team in a building with coaches, players, trainers...and you risk taking something home to your wife, children, grandchildren."
"... Possibly putting your teammates in jeopardy is selfish."

The Huffington Post noted the Fox NFL analysts also work for the same network that enables anti-vaxxer, Tucker Carlson.

Rodgers is not eligible to return to the field until a day before the Packers take on the Seattle Seahawks on November 13.
