Awwwwww yeah! Handgun aficionado and Green Bay Packers tight end Andrew Quarless is eligible to make his grand return this week.
Although he has to be medically cleared, the rules dictate Quarless can begin practicing this week. He isn’t eligible to play for another two weeks, so the soonest he’d get on the field again is on Thanksgiving.
The Packers will have to create a roster spot for God’s Gifts then, if they decide he’s healthy enough. Their other option is to send him back to injured reserve for the remainder of the season.
In Quarless’ absence, Richard Rodgers has taken virtually all of the snaps at tight end, although the Packers started to work Justin Perillo in more against Carolina.
As we’ve noted several times, Rodgers is a poor excuse for an NFL tight end. While he caught two touchdowns on Sunday, he only tallied 19 receiving yards on his five receptions. That’s a 3.8 yard average, which many NFL running backs post better per carry numbers than.
That Herculean effort of suck lowered Rodgers’ already poor yards per reception average from 8.9 to 8.0.
We all know God’s Gifts isn’t anything more than mediocre, but at least he can run more than 10 yards when he catches a football.
It’s time to stop bashing Richard Rodgers IMO. He’s not that bad.
My only beef with Dick Rodge is that he is a 270 pound man who consistently gets brought down by CBs and safeties. Matter of fact, I don’t think I’ve even seen him break a tackle. He also seems like somewhat of an uncoordinated oaf. I was at the PGA Championship over the summer, and as much of the golfers in #PackNation already know, 12 was there along with Dick Rodge and some O-Linemen. Well I was standing on number 7, and Dick Rodge comes walking to the tee with 12 to watch Tiger Woods tee off. As they were walking from the tee after the shots, Dick Rodge slipped and fell. Granted, Whistling Straights has some rough terrain, I myself fell twice in the 3 days I was there, but he’s an NFL TE. Should be more coordinated than that. They were inside the ropes too. Easier to NOT fall down………Clumsy man
lol that’s quite the story. I have heard of a few college TE’s who just have bodies that are too big. They are uncoordinated and plain goofy. I wouldn’t suspect that from an NFL TE though.
They would be far better off with Colt Lyerla. They should sign him and dump Quarless. The TE’s they have on this roster are complete garbage.
The first time I seen Perillo on the field I thought who the fuck is that? It looked Al Bundy with a wig, or Clay Mathews reject cousin. And that is what our TE position has come to..
For fuck sakes, I can’t beleive I’m even saying this, but I actually miss Andrew qaurless playing TE.
Thank the football gods. DickRod should be on a practice squad
So what is more frustrating? Richard rodgers or good old Jermicheal Finlay? One had all the potential in the world and did nothing with it, and the other had no potential and also did more or less nothing with it.
