Rodgers to Rodgers was Play of the Year

Hard to argue or think there was much of competition for this one. The Aaron Rodgers to Richard Rodgers Hail Mary in Detroit was named the 2015 play of the year at the NFL Honors on Saturday night.

Both of the Rodgers were at the even to accept the award.

“I still love seeing that replay. That was a special night,” Aaron Rodgers said during the acceptance speech. “Exciting game. Definitely one we’ll never forget. Have to thank the fans for voting for us; our offensive line, especially Donny (Barclay) for that block there to keep me out in the clear. The receivers getting down there. I know they were exhausted. Richard for moseying around there and catching it at its highest point there. Davante for kind of misjudging the ball and taking everybody back about six yards deep in the end zone. Never forget that. That was a special one.”

Want to see it one more time?

Of course you do.

    Thanks Davante for misjudging the ball. I knew your talents would come in handy at some point this year. Also, Thanks Barclay, for making the only block you’ve made all year.

      Yeah, GREAT block by Barclay, after the dude he was trying to block split his double team in about 3 seconds, stellar RT play. As for Davante, he was actually in position to go up for the ball (and probably drop it) if RichRodg wasn’t there.

    Regardless of the outcome of the season, THIS really was just a special moment! Unforgetable!! I was watching the replay for DAYS after this!

    A BS “facemask” penalty set this play up. Congrats on the “win”.

    CHOKE PACK CHOKE!

      The guys thumb went through Rodgers facemask and turned his helmet. Regardless, all the Lions had to do was keep GB out of the endzone when they knew what was coming and still gave up a 60+ yard hailmary. Talk about choking.

    Keep on crying dave. The lions will forever choke

    That was Hail Aaron I, I personally found Hail Aaron II v. Cards even more impressive…. (though the game outcome was less positive)…
    I’m thinking they work that into 2016 game plan….

      Yeah,
      If no one gets open just throw a bomb to our tall receivers Janis, Nelson, or Rodgers. AR still has long range accuracy even if his short medium range is off.
