Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers is no fan of former Monday Night Football announcer and ESPN personality Tony Kornheiser.

Talking to ESPN Radio in Milwaukee, the frozen tundra's heir apparent to Bret Favre called Kornheiser, a former Washington Post columnist and host of "Pardon the Interruption," "stupid," "dumb" and "terrible." He based his opinions on work they did together in 2008, when Kornheiser and the rest of the MNF crew met with key players to prepare for a telecast.

"You know who was better than Tony Kornheiser? Dennis Miller was ten times better," Rodgers said. "Dennis Miller was a great comedian, but one of the worst Monday Night Football guys ever. And he was ten times better than Tony Kornheiser. His stuff was actually funny. Tony wasn't funny at all. He did absolutely no research. We'd sit in those production meetings and he would add absolutely nothing to the conversation. I'd be like, 'What are we doing here? This is stupid.'"

Rodgers didn't even have good things to say about Ron Jaworski, the well-regarded analyst who once quarterbacked the Philadelphia Eagles to the Super Bowl.

"I like him, but, when I was coming out, he did the worst segment in the history of TV about me talking about my fundamentals," Rodgers said of Jaworski. "It was not even close to anywhere near my fundamentals. The first time I met him, someone introduced me to him and I said, 'Yeah I know him. He's the guy who ripped me before the draft.' The rest of the night he told me how great I was. I was like, 'I know your song and dance.' And now he loves me."
