Rodgers, Peppers Among Six Playoff Captains

Aaron Rodgers photobombed

The Green Bay Packers chose their six playoff captains this week, two from each unit.

They are Aaron Rodgers and John Kuhn on offense, Julius Peppers and Clay Matthews on defense and Mason Crosby and Chris Banjo on special teams.

Only Rodgers and Peppers were captains in last year’s group. However, the Packers uncharacteristically chose last year’s captains before the regular season ended.

They usually have a rotating set of captains each week throughout the regular season and then only elect permanent captains for the playoffs.

For whatever reason — and we’re sure you can come up with a few — things went back to normal this year.

As for the captains themselves, not really a surprise. Last year it was a surprise when Peppers and safety Morgan Burnett were named defensive captains.

However, Clay Matthews has obviously stepped up his leadership game since then.

This marks the first time both Kuhn and Banjo have been elected playoff captains.

    Who gives a shit!

    Wow, look at these Captains.

    1. Julius Peppers; User of HGH. Cheater then. He had a fine year amped up on illegal drugs banned by the NFL (and America actually other than certain specific medical conditions). He had 10.5 sacks this year hyped on HGH. Next year the NFL will have competent testing and Peppers will either get suspended or stop using. If he stops using I predict maybe 6 sacks all year for him.

    2. Clay Matthews. Leadership? Are you kidding us? He is also a drug user and abuser. Also lied to his fans in denying it. He betrayed you guys but you love him for it. Then he was a childish poor sport in Arizona game. Then when Vikings guarg Mike Harris legally blocked him across ten yards of turf, just destroyed him and made him look silly, he made himself look infinitely more silly by repeatedly punching him in the back of the head while he sat on the ground after the play was over. Clay has revealed his true self — less maturity than the average 5 year old.

    3. Rodgers. A whiner. Petulant. Keeps a collection of Ed Gein memorabilia including his most prized item, a lampshade made out of the skin of one of Gein’s victims. Rodgers is just gross and disgusting. And very creepy. There is good reason why many players who left the Packers have reported he is disliked and is arrogant. Because he is.

    Half these Captains are bad people, morally deficient. The only real surprise though is that they did not make it six out of six by naming Mike Neal, Andrew Quarless, and Letroy Guion as Captains.

      ^ This is what happens when you have a small penis, and Mommy issues.

    Actually, until now I was unaware of Rodgers, Matthews, and Peppers small penises and Mommy issues. I’ll just have to take your word for it. I guess you’ve been hiding out in the Packers showers.

    Let’s hear it for mother-fucking CHRIS BANJO!

    Way to go, man!

    A little condensed history:

    UDFA.
    Actually didn’t play his first year out of college.
    Cut by the Jaguars.
    Cut by Packers.
    Packers practice squad.
    Gets back to active roster.
    And now Playoff Captain.

    Nice work, CB!
    Let’s hear it for having some fucking resiliency!

      Great…now all he has to do is make a play.

    All I care about knowing… is who are the two photobombers? I was actually wanting it to be A Rodgers… but a lack of time travel technology eliminated that for me.

    What a mess. They’re all over the place, Rogers throwing away balls, Peppers too senile and can’t keep quiet and Matthews antics on the field. Yup, those are great team captains.
