If the Green Bay Packers are going to make the playoffs this year (not likely), quarterback Aaron Rodgers is going to be the guy that takes them there.
That will require a lot of help. The team currently sits at 4-6-1 and it seems to have become real popular to kick them when they’re down. Rodgers, who isn’t playing his best, is the easy and obvious target.
Naturally, blowhard Skip Bayless was on Rodgers earlier this week. It’s the tired argument that Tom Brady is so much better than Rodgers. That the Packers would be so much better right now if Brady were the quarterback.

Then here’s Colin Cowherd saying Rodgers has become Brett Favre.

And finally, here’s a totally misleading stat. It feeds into the Aaron Rodgers isn’t great narrative.
