No One Feels Worse Than Aaron Rodgers

Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers has been taking a beating this week. You could say it’s a deserved beating after last Sunday’s performance against the Minnesota Vikings, which was arguably the worst of Rodgers’ career.

Rodgers was extremely testy when questioned about it earlier this week. However, quarterback coach Alex Van Pelt revealed another side of Rodgers on Thursday — one who feels terrible about his play.

“Tom (Clements) and I could sit in a room with him, with Coach (McCarthy) and let that tape roll and not say a word, and he knows exactly what he should have done and what he shouldn’t do. You don’t want to be the master of the obvious, but at the same time you’re coaching the younger guys in the room, too. You make comments on it, but there’s no one that feels worse in the room than he did after the game the other night, and that’s the truth of the matter.”

While we expect a player like Rodgers to come out and have an amazing game after dealing with this sort of adversity, that hasn’t happened in some time. The last time Rodgers had a game with a QB rating above 100 was week 6 of the 2015 season.

The situation reminds us somewhat of Davante Adams’ 2015 season, which was terrible. Adams came out and said he was angry about his play, but his play didn’t improve.

Rodgers isn’t Davante Adams, but he’s playing like him.

    Maybe Adams is our poison? What if we took him off the field and all our offensive problems were solved?

      I completely agree. He’s targeted too often for his skill set. He proved to be clutch when we needed him his rookie year, but any other moment his route running, speed, and catching are sub par. He had one half of a good season but since has been terrible.
      Also is it me or does he cry for a flag every time he doesn’t make a catch. I don’t see Jordy or Cobb doing that, I think he’s got obvious frustrations but let’s let another guy get the chance. It’s not like we don’t have 7 receivers on the roster.

    The only way Rodgers could play like Adams is if Rodgers retired, was on the sideline as a spectator, and kept running out on the field causing the team multiple unsportsmanlike conduct penalties.

    Rodgers has struggled but I really believe its because he has to do everything. Look at his Coach (nuff said there), geriatric GM,and talent around him. He has 2 RB who can’t run for 20yards, WRs who are pedestrian “at best”, TEs who are lost or you can time with a sundial and that’s ALL on the sphincter GM we are stuck with. Rodgers needs new coach “at least”. Does ANYONE in their right mind think McFatass could win without Rodgers??? We saw that scenario cple years ago. Now look at what Belichick has done in 3 games. I don’t Understand how The Flagship Franchise of the NFL settles for this S%$T!!!!!!!!!!!

    How can you get rid of Mad Murphy? That would be the only way to turn around things.

      I wonder what Bob Harlan thinks of this. Remember, it was Harlan who delayed his own retirement by pulling the plug on John Jones and putting Murphy in place. I know that officially it was for medical reasons, but there were a ton of rumors that Jones wasn’t a good fit. The medical scenario was the way out of a bad situation. You would think a highly touted retired executive like Harlan might still have some serious pull.

    It’s all good as long as AR makes funny commercials and posts nice instagram photos with Olivia….being committed to football interferes with what’s really important

      Afraid there’s a whole lotta truth in your sarcastically tinted statement MR….

      The timing certainly fits, increased Nielsen ratings = reduced QB Rating. Leading to a serious case of acute yip-itis..
