Green Bay Packers’ quarterback Aaron Rodgers admitted to WTMJ Radio that he played the 2009 season with substantial injuries.
Rodgers appeared on the Packers’ injury report five times during the season, being listed as probable each time, which doesn’t equate to substantial injuries in football terms. However, team’s often play fast and loose with their injury reports and the true severity of Rodgers’ injuries don’t come as a surprise considering how terribly the Packers offensive line played.
“I didn’t make a big deal about this but I had some pretty substantial foot injuries throughout the season, sprained both feet at different times in the year.”
Rodgers also said he had a shoulder injury and that his body didn’t start feeling good until a month after the season ended.
Amazingly, Rodgers still managed to throw for 4,434 yards and 30 touchdowns in the regular season.
The Packers used the draft to strengthen their leaky offensive line, which gave up a league worst 51 sacks, drafting left tackle Bryan Bulaga in the first round and guard Marshall Newhouse in the fifth.
Hopefully, these additions, along with continued improvement from the rest of the unit, will keep Rodgers on the field.
So basically, Brett Favre is the Arnold Terminator, and Aaron Rodgers is the T-1000 liquid kick arse terminator.
Yes, in two seasons of not winning a playoff game Aaron Rodgers is better than Brett Favre. Nice observation there buddy.
Hey Matt Fox. First of all….go fuck yourself. Second of all….nice logic.
You’re such a fucking moron. If I wanted to argue with the likes of someone as dumb as you I would first have to go get lobotomized leaving myself with roughly 3% of my current brain power, whereby I would still be a 3-1 favorite to kick your worthless ass in any form of debate.
By your argument and your demented sense of logic, I’ll just say Brett Favre is a worse quarterback than Aaron Rodgers because he’s thrown more career interceptions.
You’re worthless, Matt Fox. I put the over/under on your IQ at 65.
You have said absolutely nothing of substance in your in depth analysis of why my logic is flawed, except to go fuck myself. Are you fucking retarded?
And for the record, I like Aaron Rodgers. I liked Aaron Rodgers when he played at Cal, and when he was Favres backup for 4 years and some people were down on him. A-rod aint da problem. Its the two jackasses running the show that need to go.
Considering the beating Rodgers took in the first half of the season (37 in the first 8 games) it’s amazing he’s still able to walk..
if you ask me, which nobody really did, i’d say the most interesting question about all this is, at favre’s age, could he have taken the hits he probably would have taken if he were behind center for the pack last year? sure, he might not have held onto the ball as long, but he probably would have also launch a few more INTs.
First of Joel, I’d just like to say that who’s fault is it that Aaron Rodgers got the beating he did? Who hasn’t built a decent O-line since he came in to the organization? In FIVE years?! Who’s probably going to break our qb in half before long? Ted Thompson.
Now, back to your question. Favre DID take a beating that badly, worse actually, in 06, when more than half the Packers on the squad were injured and TT did not sign any FAs for depth. Favre just got murdered that year and he was 37 or something. Much worse than Rodgers last year. So yes. I do think Favre couldve have taken the hits. He’s Iron Man.
