Michael Strahan is curious how Aaron Rodgers will handle the legendary New York spotlight.
The Giants veteran, 51, appeared on "The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon" on Thursday.
Rodgers might not fit in New York, according to Strahan. "I'm not sure if Aaron Rodgers and the media [fit]," Strahan said.Until proven innocent, our media is guilty.
"They don't like you—you have to make them like you, and I think he'll come in off the darkness retreat already, so they'll be like, 'You know, this guy...'"
"I believe they'll give him the benefit of the doubt, but they're looking." So it'll be interesting to see how he handles the unruly New York media.
After Rodgers chastised NFL insiders Adam Schefter and Ian Rapoport on "The Pat McAfee Show" in February, Strahan's former teammate
Tiki Barber questioned whether Rodgers was too "sensitive" for the country's biggest market. Ian's duty, according to Barber, is to get NFL news.
"Earlier this week, Aaron Rodgers took a shot at Ian Rapoport, essentially saying, 'He doesn't know anyone in my inner circle, he doesn't have my number.'" Stop talking, Ian.
"As I read the full quotes from his Pat McAfee weekly appearance, discussing Schefter and Rapoport, it just made me realize that if he is that sensitive that he gets upset that people, reporters,
opinion-makers, influencers, whatever—want to talk about him, he is going to struggle in New York." I don't want him in New York if this is how he reacts to little matters."
