Nearly seven years after Phil Simms commented about Aaron Rodgers’ preference to have the football inflated as much as possible during cold-weather games, the Green Bay Packers star addressed the story. 

Appearing on The Pat McAfee Show, Rodgers called it an “incredibly false” and “ridiculous narrative” in the midst of all of the Deflategate drama with Tom Brady and the New England Patriots that he prefers to throw an overinflated football:

“I love rebutting narratives that are incredibly false.. there was a narrative used during deflategate that I like balls over inflated but all I ever told Phil Simms was I can’t throw a flat ball” ~<a href=”https://twitter.com/AaronRodgers12?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw”>@AaronRodgers12</a><a href=”https://twitter.com/hashtag/PatMcAfeeShowLIVE?src=hash&amp;ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw”>#PatMcAfeeShowLIVE</a> <a href=”https://t.co/fpA5xU2RXc”>pic.twitter.com/fpA5xU2RXc</a>

The topic came up when McAfee asked about the air pressure in the football when talking about Rodgers’ interception in the first quarter of Sunday’s 25-22 overtime win against the Cincinnati Bengals. 

Per USA Today‘s Christopher Kuhagen, Simms brought up the topic of how Rodgers prefers the football to feel in his hand in the cold when he was broadcasting a November 2014 matchup between the Packers and Patriots. 

Simms said on the CBS telecast that Rodgers told him during a pregame production meeting he likes “to push the limit in how much air we can put in the football.”
