  Bill Belichick praises 'underrated' Russell Wilson: 'I don't really see anybody better than this player' Belichick is absolutely right that Wilson does not get the credit he deserves from most fans and media. Too often, Mr. Unlimited is left out of conversations about the best quarterback in the NFL."Honestly, I think he’s in a way underrated by the media or the fans, I don’t know," Belichick said. "But I don’t really see anybody better than this player.

A few weeks ago Dak Prescott opened up about the depression he struggled through during the offseason after his brother committed suicide near the beginning of the coronavirus quarantine.

Rodgers was asked during a Wednesday press conference about Prescott and shared his thoughts:

“I think it’s great. I saw what Dak said, I applaud him. I think it’s phenomenal, him speaking out, because that’s true courage and that’s true strength. It’s not a weakness at all. And anybody who attacks it … other people’s opinions of ourselves have nothing to do with us. ... And other people’s opinions of Dak have nothing to do with him. Those are their own insecurities to deal with their own s—t, probably.”

Rodgers seemed to be taking a shot at a certain FS1 personality with the remark.

The Green Bay Packers quarterback talked about the stigma surrounding mental health discussions:

“There’s a weird stigma around it — weakness — to either ask for help or admit you’re struggling with things, or admit negative thoughts about yourself. I think the strength is taking care of yourself and taking care of your mind and understanding how important your thoughts are because they become things and understanding how important positivity is, and your attitude, and waking up each day with the right focus and the right mindset. Taking time to be quiet during the day, allow your brain to rewire itself.”
