Rodgers Wants Nothing to Do with Hall of Fame Game

Aaron Rodgers

Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers has been an outspoken opponent of the preseason since receiver Jordy Nelson went down with a torn ACL.

He’s called the games meaningless and suggested that the number of preseason games should be reduced.

Well, there’s a good chance the Packers will get five preseason games next season.

Lucky us!

Brett Favre will go into the Pro Football Hall of Fame next summer. Each year, the Hall of Fame game is held the same weekend as the Hall of Fame induction ceremony. Each year, the former teams of inductees are featured in the game.

It would stand to reason the Packers will be one of those teams next year.

Rodgers says that’s horseshit!

“We hope we don’t get it,” said Rodgers. “But we know it’s going to be tough because No. 4 (Favre) is going to be going in.”

Right.

The general mood around the Packers is that Rodgers wouldn’t play in the game even if the Packers were forced to.

Of course, there are plenty of other veterans who get another preseason contest to get injured in. It doesn’t seem like the Packers would hold out all of their stars.

But it would be funny if they did and we’d totally support that decision.

    One of the most seriously guilty pleasures of mine, and I emphasize the word guilty, would be to seen Favre play in the game for a series just for old time’s sake. There, I said it.

      Favre puts on the uniform one last time, mic’d up of course. I imagine his first words in the huddle would be something like. “Can you believe this shit they got me doing, hey Jordy, (handshake) Brett, nice to meet you, just go fuckin deep.”
