Quarterbacks get asked about other quarterbacks all the time. That usually produces some sort of cliche-ridden response about how the other guy is playing really well and I really respect his game.
Yada, yada, yada.
Naturally, Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers was asked about his Denver Broncos counterpart, Peyton Manning, this week. His response deviated a bit from the norm, at least as far as these things go.
“Got to know him a little bit at some events, he’s a very funny guy,” Rodgers said. “Fun to be around. He’s always cracking jokes and got a great personality. I love his commercials. He’s been doing it at the highest level for a long time, so you’ve got to have a ton of respect, and I do. I appreciate the contributions he’s made to the game. Both on and off the field. He’s a legend.”
You’d think that if Manning whipped out his dong, Rodgers would jump at the chance to slurp it up. That’s how much he loves old Fivehead.
“I love his commercials. He’s been doing it at the highest level for a long time, so you’ve got to have a ton of respect, and I do”
The way I read this, AR is talking about Peyton’s commercials when he says “He’s been doing it at the highest level for a long time” – a truly brilliant backhanded compliment since it isn’t about his skill on the gridiron at all….
One, in no way do I see this as slurping over Mannings dick. Two, complimenting him on some funny commercials isn’t a backhanded compliment. Why the fuck do people sensationalize everything and try to make something out of nothing?
Despite what you think of him, Mannings commercials are a million times funnier than all of Aarons combined. If AR does have any funny ones it has nothing to do with the cardboard acting skills he has, and everything to do with the other people in the commercial. Sorry not sorry. Plus Paytons United Way skit on SNL was fucking hilarious.
Don’t really find any of their commercials all tat funny, mildly clever at times sure, but I agree Manning’s United Way skit on SNL is a classic.
How do you get, that Rodgers would slurp up Manning’s dong if he whipped it out, from what Rodgers said about him?
He got to know him, he likes him. He respects his game. Rodgers thinks he’s a legend. Big freaking deal! MOST people like Manning, respect him, and think he’s a legend, because it’s true.
I do like this website 80% of the time, but some of the total shit you write is idiotic.
The next time you have an urge to write trash like this, do your readers a favor. Instead, hit yourself in the head with a hammer.
Y’know Monty, the cynicism and the swearing and ranting was kind of a funny schtick a few years ago. You were the George Carlin of the Packer universe, to a degree. But now it’s just constant negativity and shit-talk, without any of the good punchlines. Definitely doesn’t read like a “fan” site anymore. Hope you right the ship here at Total Packers!
…and yes, that’s just my opinion, and he can say whatever he wants on his own blog, so fuck off before you even start with that shit, brethren.
First time to this site. When someone smacks another fellow with the slurp dick crap, more often than not it is the writer that has that urge.
So have a whack at it MCMahon
