    Go watch any Aaron Rodgers highlight video. Look at how open a receiver has to be before he'll throw it. He's protecting his TD Int ratio.

    • TyRanT SoLDieR
      TyRanT SoLDieR 6 months ago

      @Mario Lunar
      He throws it away and takes sacks as well to protect it. This is why come playoff time Aaron Rodgers struggles. Receivers don't run that wide open in the playoffs.

    • Mario Lunar
      Mario Lunar 6 months ago

      TyRanT SoLDieR would u rather have him just turn the ball over that’s why he throws it away half the time and when they do get open and he throws it to them they drop it he has no trust with his receivers except like Lazard and Adams

    Pack are coming back next season. Aaron is getting his second ring before he retires. If Green Bay can get just another weapon at wide receiver and another really good defensive lineman they will have a legit change no doubt. If we still had Randall Cobb that game may have been different. It's not over yet for him by a long shot. He didn't play well the first half but had no constant targets to throw to.

    They saying Rodgers window is closed and blame it on his weapons...what weapons has Brady had the past 3 years?!?! Gronk was a shell of himself, Edelman is constantly injured because he plays so hard and every else is terrible.

  • greg jay
    greg jay 8 months ago

    Barrie Rodgers is THE ultimate Human Enigma. He looks unstoppable one moment then next game he looks disinterested. His entire NFL career has been up... then back down. His body language appeared nonchalant could care less most times. Yes Barrie Rodgers had exquisite skill but nowadays he can no longer bail out the team soltero he relies heavily now on RB Jones and an underneath catch & run offense and when opponents stop that Rodgers is knackered.

  • Monsterbaby
    Monsterbaby 8 months ago

    When you have no answers you go to stats. Really! 4 picks? That tells me he cares more about his turnover ratio than winning games. The Unknown receivers Rodgers has can do the job, but he chooses not to throw to them when they are open in stead opting for a triple covered 50 yards down the filed Adams.

  • tory Puente
    tory Puente 8 months ago +2

    I don't want to say it's closed but it is starting to close we have to regroup and bring in some more talent on both sides of the ball and a little more on offense starting with a veteran receiver to compliment Adams

    • Mario Lunar
      Mario Lunar 6 months ago

      tory Puente yeah man it’s a first year with a new head coach but I’m exciting when we shut up the haters up this year when they play better then they did last year

  • Ryan Melton

    Rodgers hasn't lost physical ability. He has one great receiver and nobody else. He only trusts Adams. Get a couple WR's and some run stuffers in the middle of the D-line and they will be right back in the NFC Championship. He still has top 10 NFL arm strength and more mobility than 2/3 of the starting quarterbacks in the league. All this relying on talent instead of technique is stupid, it takes TECHNIQUE to make the throws he's made throughout his career. A lot of people have cannon arm strength like he does, but they don't have the technique required to make some of those throws. That's why Max's take makes no sense. And yes, the fumbles were bad and he was bad in the first half, but 31/39 for 300+ and two touchdowns aren't laughable numbers. They always take it to the extreme with the Bradys, Rodgers, and Brees of the world. It's Brady who looked like a shell of his former self this year, not Rodgers.

    Rodgers moodiness, condescending argumentative attitude, and misjudgments on the field messes up the team and the offensive lines moral.
    And the Referees dictating who wins and losses in the N.F.L. had got to stop. You can tell that the Referees are [Not Impartial]. Referees are [Cooking The Games] for Odds Makers, Las Vegas Betters and Team owners. The Refs. Must Get Something Out Of It.

    I guess he's going to keep on being the "most talented" while other great qb's actually wim championships .

    • Mario Lunar
      Mario Lunar 5 months ago

      Isaiah Richardson and your argument isn’t really valid , u can’t always rely on your qb when he’s the only one being productive the only way u can win championships is if the defense is productive and everyone else around shares the same production as u but that’s a very valid argument that u put with just the word so lol
