There was much idiotic speculation about what Aaron Rodgers was doing in a tent on the Green Bay Packers’ sideline in the midst of their win over the Philadelphia Eagles on Monday night.
He was pulling his pants down.
As I correctly noted during the game, that tent is there in case someone needs to take a leak during the game. Interestingly, it isn’t actually as tall as a normal-sized person, so the person inside either has to sit or kneel to do their business. That’s just poor design, but that isn’t the point here.
Rodgers was in there for a different reason. As you surely noticed, he had something going on with his hamstring during the contest that limited his mobility.
Rodgers went into the tent to get taped up.
“I just didn’t want to be getting taped up on the television,” Rodgers said. “But obviously when I walked out and saw the camera right in my face, I knew there was probably some sort of mini-story growing. I had to drop my drawers a little bit to get taped up and just wanted to do in the privacy of that tent.”
Rodgers assured everyone the injury wouldn’t affect him going forward — that he’d be playing next week. It certainly didn’t affect him in this game either. Rodgers completed a season-high 76.9 percent of his passes.
That was a masterful performance against a pretty stout defense on the road.
Hey Clay Matthews, did you see your teammate Aaron Rodgers last night? He certainly had a bad hamstring. Did that keep him off the field? No! No, it did not!
This is way more worth discussing
AARON RODGERS DROPPED SOME BOMBS
Like i’ve said so many times before, Rodgers didn’t just forget how to play QB.
Many of you couldn’t stop ripping Rodgers apart. Now crickets.
Some of you (i know who you are) went so far as to declare Rodgers career over, that he’s finished, that’he’s done, that he should be traded…all your words, not mine. Where the fook are you now? I’m looking for you but all i hear is fucking crickets.
PF4L, this isn’t about him “forgetting how to play qb.” I am not sure if you read the article or not, but there are some serious issues with Rodgers that are kind of behind the scenes. And they might have an impact on the locker room. I know Finley is a headcase himself, and Jennings word could be taken with a grain of salt because he was butthurt that the packers didnt resign him and rodgers didnt vouch for him to be signed. But Donald Driver’s words have always resonated with me, because he was always a super respected guy in the locker room guy. Couple that with all the family issues and i have come to the conclusion that while is an all time great qb, he is also an asshole with a personality disorder. Basically what I have gather is he is Jay Cutler with more talent. Winning masks a lot of things, a lot of weaknesses in a team, but usually the locker room will hold together. But in a season where the team has been decimated by injuries, qb1 want through a stretch of rough play, TT making terrible personnel decisions, well, it was the perfect storm for a lot of this to come to light. Stuff that has likely gone on for a few years. If the packers miss the playoffs (they likely will), I think you will likely see more stuff come up.
If Rodgers really is this polarizing in the locker room, the packers have a big decision to make. Because a team has no shot at winning a super bowl no matter who is coach if there is dissention in the locker room involving your superstar qb. Sorry for t he novel.
Kato……I respect your right to express your viewpoints, now it’s time for mine. As harsh as they may be. You won’t like it, but let me respond in kind.
Rodgers is a perfectionist, and i doubt he’d be as productive as he is, if he wasn’t. Finley didn’t like structure, he wanted to do his own thing, hence the problems with Rodgers apparently. Finley, although talented, was an asshole.
Jennings, was pissed off at Rodgers for not insisting the Packers re-sign him. Wasn’t it Jennings who turned down an offer of 10 million a year? http://www.nfl.com/news/story/0ap1000000150308/article/report-greg-jennings-offered-10m-a-year-by-packers. Then signed with the vikings for less money?http://www.espn.com/nfl/story/_/id/9057818/greg-jennings-signs-five-year-deal-minnesota-vikings
Jennings, was and is, an asshole.
Donald Driver made 1 light quip about Rodgers. Big deal.
You stated, that you’ve come to the conclusion that Rodgers is an asshole and that he has a personality disorder based on what driver said, and because he has family issues.
Interesting…Please tell me who you know, that has any credible 1st hand knowledge of Rodger’s family issues. Is it Tyler Dunne? Mordecai? Joseph? Monty? TMZ?
Writers assumptions and gossip speculation doesn’t make someone an asshole, nor does it give them a personality disorder. Maybe you are a psychologist specializing in analyzing personality disorders, i don’t know.
Monty, Mordecai, Joseph, Dunne, all have the same amount of 1st hand knowledge of Rodgers family issues as my fucking dog.
The lesson is….Don’t use gossip click bait based on nothing credible and substantiated to deem someone an asshole inflicted with a personality disorder.
My contention is, everyone that writes gossip and those who make judgements based on gossip they read, are the assholes, not Rodgers. Take that anyway you’d like.
Now…and this is the most comical. You state that Rodgers is like Cutler? Really? lmao
Cutler has a reputation for not caring. Rodgers, could be accused of caring too much and has a never dying commitment to winning. I don’t get the correlation. Rodgers probably outworks Cutler at his craft 5 fold.
Maybe when you wrote that, you had a snootful of that special Bourbon you speak of.
Obviously Rodgers isn’t your idea of the best QB for the Green Bay Packers. We could have had someone that is loved by everyone’s sister, Mother, and Grandmother that think he is just adorable that loves his family and is a good God fearing Christian that is just so perfect in everyway. But unfortunately Tebow isn’t available.
