Yeah, that’s right. Former Minnesota Vikings receiver Cris Carter loves Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers.
Of course, he couldn’t say something without being a dick about the Packers. Because he’s always been a dick.
Regardless, it’s funny that not even a Viking can deny how great Rodgers is. Best ball Carter has even seen. It’s satisfying to watch this dirtbag begrudgingly talk about how amazing Rodgers is.
Yep, Rodgers is quite good. A few points:
1. Carter is a dick. I say this as a Vikings fan and I wish it were not true. Not due tot he above comments. They were correct. But he gave a speech to rookies coming into the NFL and told them to enlist a crew of friends and let them know the price for hanging out is to take the fall for the rookies when the rookies do something wrong or illegal. That is total evil BS.
2. Although the Packers have a full roster and there are some good players, essentially Rodgers does carry them. 12-4 with him, 4-14 without him. That is exactly carrying them. Other than Rodgers, how many players are top 10 at their position on that roster? Jordy Nelson is arguable. Mike Daniels is arguable. David Bahktiari? Probably. Clinton-Dix is not that good. Clay Matthews is a hollowed out shell of a PED-bot. Julius Peppers is in North Carolina. Adams is good but the Rodgers throws make him look a lot better than he really is. He does not really “get open” via his own moves. The rest of the roster are “bubble” players that may or may not even make most teams. So you say Carter is being a dick there but the “dick” is “telling the truth”.
3. Rodgers is quite good but his stats and rating are artificially pumped up. No other team is so likely to pass it in for TDs than the Packers. Look at the Patriots last year with Blount getting 18 TDs! Put Blount on an MM/Rodgers team and he’ll get 3 TDs that year. Basically, the Packers take 15 TDs per year that would normally be rushing TDs and pad Rodgers’ stat line with them. TDs thrown should not have such an impact — or any impact — on a QB’s rating. Maybe just plain old TD drives or no TDs at all. How in heck does a 99 yard drive ending with a 1 yard fullback plunge count so much less than a 12 yard drive capped by a 1 yard TD pass? It shouldn’t.
Right… because every RB gets 18 tds a season. You can say that about any QB.. so-and-so would have less TDs if they ran the ball in the red zone more. Congrats captain obvious. Tell that to the Seahawks.
“Rodgers stats are artificially pumped,” haha. That’s why when 12 threw for six TD’s in the first half against the Bears McCarthy pulled him for the second half. If he would have stayed in the game Rodgers would have crushed the single game record. That’s why at the end of the 2011 season Rodgers didn’t even play the last game of the year against the Lions (Flynn threw for 6 tds). If Rodgers plays that game he breaks the season record for td’s. But yeah, his stats and TD to INT ratio are totally padded. Maybe we should rank everything by yards so then Killer can brag about the Vikings receivers some more.
