Aaron Rodgers appeared on a TSN Radio podcast with Cabbie Richards today, in which he talked about the kinds of things quarterbacks talk about in the offseason. Saturday Night Live, golfing, a potential Floyd Mayweather - Manny Pacquiao fight ... and butts. Yeah.
Rodgers was asked about what makes for a good center and what makes a center easy to work with. He said that his center needs to avoid sweating and have good 'butt height'. I'm not making this up. Here are Rodgers' quotes on Jeff Saturday's butt, transcribed by Sports Radio Interviews.
"There's two main components that a center needs to have, and it's not quickness or agility or snapping or anything. It's two things: One, he has to have a good height, and I'm talking about where his butt rests. It can't be too low because I don't wanna get deep in that stance and it can't be too high so I feel like I'm standing up. It's gotta be just right. He's got that ... Scott Wells - my previous center - (and) Jeff Saturday: great height. Great butt height ... And the second is most important, and that's sweating. How much do they sweat? The worst thing that you can have is third, fourth quarter on a October day where it's 65, 70 degrees and he's sweating through his pants. Because that is not a situation you wanna be in."
