Aaron Rodgers Thanked Justin Tucker Today

Justin Tucker's kick sealed the Detroit Lions fate

It’s Tuesday, so that means Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers enlightens us through his weekly radio show. Today, he started it off by thanking Baltimore Ravens kicker Justin Tucker.

Tucker hit the game-winning 61-yard field goal to defeat the Detroit Lions last night, sending the Leos from first to third in the NFC North and Motown into a deep, dark depression.

The Packers, of course, just need to win out to win the North.

The first words out of Rodgers’ mouth were these.

“I’d like to thank Justin Tucker off the top here for his performance last night,” Rodgers said to open his ESPN Milwaukee radio show. “Unbelievable. That 61-yarder was amazing. I didn’t quite get the three previous plays, but wow.”

Nice shot at the play calling prior to the kick…

“It’s amazing that we’re sitting here 7-6-1 with a chance to win two and be in [the playoffs],” Rodgers said.

Amazing, it is.

However, it’s starting to sound like the Packers are going to be rolling with Matt Flynn again this week, which would totally make this guy happy.

Although he plans on practicing this week, Rodgers didn’t sound overly optimistic that tests tomorrow will show that his broken collarbone is any further along.

    The “buzz” is that Aaron Rodgers has been told he’s starting. It’s just the buzz.

    People can’t forget, if Rodgers plays the last 2 games, they’re not automatic wins. It’s still the NFL, it’s still a team game.

    With that said. It’s still Aaron fucking Rodgers. He’s a BAAAAD man!!

    Lets do this.

      Then ahmo be a buzz-kill. Flynn is going to get the start, and the only way that AR plays is if Flynn decides he wants to ‘celebrate’ Thanksgiving again on Sunday.

          Can you say ‘flashback’?

      I’m going to reveal my source of the buzz.

      I know a guy, who’s neighbor’s brother’s cousin, is dating the sister of one of the towel boys for the Packers, So, believe who you want, I’m sticking with my story.

        Fuck all that. Is she hot? If so, then her story stands. If not, who gives a rat’s ass.

    F the new format on TP

    1. Savage57 December 17, 2013

      TP? Stands for Tiresome Pop-ups.

  3. Phatgzus December 17, 2013

    Yeah, this new mobile version is ambit of a SNAFU.

  4. Phatgzus December 17, 2013

    “…a bit*”.

  5. Tom December 17, 2013

    Phatgzus, you no likey the mobile? I think it’s A’ite.

    1. Phatgzus December 18, 2013

      Yeah, me no likey mucho, just quality of life stuff: the colors-this a Green Bay Packers site dammit! green and gold; can’t get back to the home page by clicking the TP at the top and the menu also doesn’t provide that option; and can’t open multiple tabs; no improvement on responding to comments in Mobile. Otherwise, it’s aight; still got that content.

    Def diggin the new mobile version. The color scheme is sorta ‘seahawkish’ but it’ll get better I’m sure. I think matt flynn COULD beat the steelers but if Rodgers starts, I’ve got us going to the ‘ship, especially with one home playoff game, maybe more. Then Rodgers can beat the broncos in the superbowl; yet again something brett couldn’t do.

    The D is about as healthy as its going to be this year and the return of Rodgers should provide just enough spark for us to make a real run at this thing. GPG.
