Aaron Rodgers blasts Joe Namath for ripping Zach Wilson: ‘Not helping the cause’

Aaron Rodgers wants Broadway Joe to sing a different song.

The wounded Jets quarterback wants Zach Wilson to receive encouragement from Joe Namath, a team legend.

 rather than criticizing him for failing to successfully replace Rodgers, despite being the former No. 2 choice.

"I told [the players] during preseason that managing success—whether we are experiencing it or not—is our hardest challenge. 

That doesn't mean you're winning all the time, so you've got to handle it properly, Rodgers said on Tuesday's "The Pat McAfee Show."

 "How do we react when we're not succeeding? How do we handle difficulty?

"And it also applies to our supporter base and previous players. You are doing no good for the cause. You aren't advancing the cause.

Wilson put on yet another subpar effort in Sunday's 15-10 home loss to the Patriots, which was criticized by Namath both before and after the game.
