Much has been made of how Aaron Rodgers made up the Green Bay Packers’ final offensive play against the Dallas Cowboys — a 36-yard completion to tight end Jared Cook. Rodgers was on the Dan LeBatard Show on Wednesday and described exactly how that went down.
Everybody run to the left.
“I said everybody kind of run over to the left, and get open — not exactly in those words, but that was basically the gist of it,” Rodgers said.
He went on to say that he had never done anything like that before. However, he had been thinking of the concept previously.
“What ended up being the play was not something we talked about, but it was something that I thought about at various times throughout the season or throughout the week even,” Rodgers said. “But it’s hard to kind of put a name necessarily on a play where we have a roll-out with a clear-out and everybody else kind of running to the left. Didn’t exactly have a name for that. But in situations like that [coach] Mike [McCarthy] will allow me to pick a play out of a selection of plays we have.”
Here’s the full description from Rodgers.
Fat Mike is batting about .950 in the play-calling category without a legit RB or #1 receiver , you’re welcome.
But its times like that where improv is called for. Nice job offense.
No one fumbled, mishandled an onside kick or missed a field goal in order to blame Fat Mike. Funny how that works
Fire him damnit!
Did you see fat Mike catch the penalty yardage runoff refs missed in Dallas in the 1st quarter on Sunday?
That was 37 yards in field position
Don’t you think he got a tipoff from someone in the booth, maybe even Capers ?
Nope. Mike gets credit for nuttin ’round here. Now excuse me while I finish this brat and dribble condiments all over myself.
Yeah, we get it. You 2 love you some McCarthy. If the Packers fuck the dog this weekend because of McCarthy, can’t wait to see you 2 here defending him. He’s due…
Not as much as Packers fans that secretly cheer for them to lose to justify his firing…
Get real. He is literally a Top-5 active coach
If he gets a 2nd ring, it will be time to pucker-up buttercup
