We would all agree. Aaron Rodgers hasn’t been playing quarterback particularly effectively for the Green Bay Packers this year. At least not at the ultra-high level that he has established for the team and himself.
What’s the problem? Knee injury in week 1? He says he’s recovered. Still, there have been throws throughout the season that fucking Blake Bortles wouldn’t make. Or I guess would make…
That time he dropped the ball short of Marquez Valdez-Scantling — like way short of him — on a 3rd-and-2 in Seattle? Easy first down… if you make the throw, Bortles! There have been others since.
I’m not going to overly-criticize the third-greatest quarterback to ever suit it up for the Packers. No offense to Arnie Herber.
But man, make the fucking throw. You get paid — a hell of a lot — to do one fucking thing. MAKE THE THROW, THROWY!
But, awwwwwww, shit… that one in Seattle stuck to my hand!
“I could do that a hundred times and probably not do that again,” Rodgers said. “It was a gimme. It was a gimme out there. It stuck to my hand.”
And have there been any issues since? Missing open receivers? Repeatedly? Maybe in Minnesota?
“I don’t think I need to respond about fundamentals,” Rodgers said. “I mean, I drill the fundamentals. I throw how I throw. I’m not playing any different this year. It’s just we’re not completing as many passes percentage-wise.
“I listen to my quarterback coach and my offensive coordinator and my head coach. My study of myself, I’m very critical of my own film. I’m not playing any differently fundamental-wise. You can’t have it both ways. You can’t love it when it’s a certain way and then critique it when it’s the other way. I mean, you guys can because that what you guys get paid to do. Again, that’s the news cycle. They’re going to pick at things when you’re in a situation like this where we’re at. We’re 4-6-1 so it comes with the territory.”
No problems here. We are not going to question Aaron Rodgers’ fundamentals, although I don’t know that this is necessarily the issue.
First of all, no one can question the $134 million man. Right?
I don’t know that it’s the news cycle either. You’re gonna let that palooka Demovsky dictate the news cycle? I mean, c’mon… you’re the $134 million man!
The fact that some of these clowns get paid for anything other than working at McDonald’s is laughable.
Rodgers isn’t making the throws. He isn’t completing the throws. He’s part of the problem at the moment.
