I just had to get up from the couch to voice something. I just heard Chris Collinsworth state right before halftime that “the Packers can’t win with Aaron Rogers”. Then Bumble Gumble chimed in with, “he’s never even thrown an NFL touchdown.”
Are these idiots forgetting that:
1. He’s played behind the current Iron Man of football for his entire career? Brett Favre who’s never missed a snap in anything but pure garbage time and exhibition games?
2. Aaron Rogers, leading up to the time that he was drafted, was being tossed around with Alex Smith as the potential #1 OVERALL draft pick of the 2005 NFL Draft?
How do you KNOW the Packers can’t win with him? He’s had almost as much playing time as me! Fortunately, shortly after the two babbling douchebags denounced him completely, Rogers marched down the field for his first NFL touchdown. It won’t be long before we hear them saying, “Former #1 draft pick contender, Aaron Rogers, a brave man who waited patiently behind future Hall of Famer Brett Favre, is someone who I always knew would be able to grab the reigns and lead this majestic team to victory in a way that would make Brett Favre proud.”
I hate commentators so much.
Edit to add: With 54 seconds to go, Chris Collinsworth just said, “If Brett Favre does have to miss any extended time with this injury, it’s clear that the Packers have a very legitimate shot in the playoffs with Aaron Rodgers.” A 30 minute flip-flop, is that a new record?
