Rodgers: Packers Turning it On This Week

Aaron Rodgers

Hey, if you’re buying, Aaron Rodgers is still selling the idea that the Green Bay Packers can just flip the switch once the playoffs start.

“I’ve never lost confidence in myself, and our team will be ready to play,” Rodgers said. “I’m confident that there’s a different focus this week. And as much as you wouldn’t want this to be the standard, that you can ‘turn it on and off,’ I think our guys are turning it on this week. And we’re going to play better.”

That’s funny because after the Packers got pummeled by the Cardinals, Rodgers was selling the same rhetoric. After that debacle he told us the Packers would show up when it really counted.

Perhaps everyone was just disinterested with regular season football. Once they sewed up that playoff spot in week 15 they said, “Ah, to hell with these next two games! Let’s just take easy until the playoffs.”

Coach Mike McCarthy seemed to have other ideas, at one time guaranteeing a victory over the Vikings in week 17, but we have a feeling guys stopped listening to him a while ago.

So I guess we’ll see there, big guy.

We’ll see who’s running this show and we’ll see if all of this talk of showing up when it really counts is anything more than just talk.

    They turned it off after game 6, so why not?

    1. John Smith January 7, 2016

      No, they never showed up this season. The offense was crap for the first 6 weeks also.

  2. John Smith January 7, 2016

    Aaron Rodgers keeps talking about how great their team can be and that they can improve week after week. Talk is cheap, that’s all I can say. Rodgers and the offense keeps saying all these things, yet they been REGRESSING since week 2-3 ? The only people who had actually stepped up their game was the defense, even Stupid Dom Capers stepped up his game , he is making Aaron Rodgers, Mike McCarty and his entire offensive coaching staff look bad. Now that is embarrassing..

    Well all we can do is hope,hope he gets the time to make the throws,hope he can focus and choose the right receivers,hope they can catch the ball,hope the defense plays as well as they have been and hope we win the game.

    1. John Smith January 7, 2016

      I hope for that to happened since week 2, things actually went south if you think about it. WR’s actually dropped more balls, Rodgers actually stop playing, the line forgets how to block week after week. And OMFG, Richard Rodgers seems to be getting slower with every route he runs.

    Show us, don’t tell us.

    I guess it’s easier to feel confident when facing the 28th ranked defense.

    Let me say it again…show us, don’t fucking tell us.

    It wasn’t that long ago, that McCarthy was telling us, that the Packers would beat the Vikings. How did that work out for you fat ass?

    1 point for PF4L. Rodgers needs to walk the walk

    I have five letters for the Packs offense. E X L A X .They move around like they are all constipated.

    Hitting Janis on a skinny post route for a touchdown on the first series would go a long way to showing us the Packers mean business.

    If they run the same plays this Sunday I am flying to GB and shoving my stock paper up buffoons a hole

  10. Zwoeger January 7, 2016

    The guys can turn it on whatever they want if A-Rod doesn’t and feed them it won’t help much does it?

  11. anthony January 7, 2016

    lmao good idea. i would be happier having my stock paper up buffoon’s ass rather than it hanging in my living room.

    according to some GB insiders, there enough dissension in the locker room between AR and his teammates to knock out a horse.

    1. icebowl January 7, 2016

      It doesn’t take some “GB insiders” to figure that out ….
      I think that’s been evident for a while, Jeff…

      Need a new coach and GM that will address this issue and allow this team to focus on playing football….

      1. the real jeff ircink January 8, 2016

        right – but fans (or ex-fans) realizing that is one thing. having people in the huddle/on the team who confirm is it certainly adds weight to it. it’s a shame – AR was crowned the successor to Favre – many felt he was better. waste.
