Aaron Rodgers Calls Mark Sanchez GQ Spread "Embarrassing"

New York Jets QB Mark Sanchez knew he would hear grumbling from his teammates in the locker room and even fans around the league for landing on the cover of GQ.  But from other starting quarterbacks?

Count Green Bay Packers star Aaron Rodgers as those less-than-impressed with Sanchez' spread in the famous publication.

"Look at this," Rodgers told ESPN Milwaukee while looking at the photos. "That's embarrassing... That's terrible".

To be fair, the photos are, in fact, terrible.  Though these type of things come with the territory of being the face of a franchise.  Why hasn't Rodgers found his way onto the cover of GQ and other magazines following a Super Bowl winning season?

"It's just not my style.  I like my anonymity, I like my privacy.  I like to be the quarterback during the week and, in the offseason, be able to do what I want to do and not be in the public eye."

Well, other than the ring, that is clearly another area where Sanchez and Rodgers are different.  I'm not sure the Jets signal caller has met a microphone or camera that he hasn't found time for, though there are far less for Rodgers to meet in Green Bay.
