Rodgers blasts Giants for silly play call

Midfielder of the Green Bay Packers Aaron Rodgers returned to the Pat McAfee Show for his weekly slot, and the future Hall of Famer spoke about the bizarre situation involving both the Chargers and Raiders getting on one knee to secure a playoff spot. Rodgers said that if something like that was presented to him, he would lose his mind and you play ball to win.

Then he took a giant shot at the Giants game, and rightly so. Facing third and nine on their own line five yards, the Giants lined up in apple formation and ran a sneak. A series of boos echoed throughout the stadium as the fans were truly displeased with what they had just witnessed.

“The idea that they’re not going to kick it because it can be blocked, look, you play to win the game,” Rodgers said. You know what would make me lose my mind so much? 3rd & 9th out of -5, let’s go into HR and run QB stealthily”.

“You play to win the game.. no one wants to get involved in the knee-jerk to equalize. You know what would drive me out of my mind so much.. goal line staff & a QB sneak in 3rd & 9th out of -5″😂😂 ~@AaronRodgers12#PatMcAfeeShowLIVE https://t.co/dGsHzySZ2X

“Call that person in Matt (LeFleur) and see what happens, that * I don’t fly, that’s unbelievable.”

The play call he is referring to can be seen below.

The Giants just shot QB on Tuesday & September from their own #4 😂New York, I hope you didn’t bet on G Men today ‍♂️ https://t.co/HN0m0gSOl4

Green Bay finished the regular season with a 13-4 record and after a five-game winning streak, confidently entered the knockout stages. Bye-bye to the first round will definitely give some tired bodies a break and they will be eager to move on to the qualifiers.

Green Bay’s No 12 is welcome to win consecutive MVPs after another great season in which he has plagued teams with his play. He finished the year with 37 touches, just four interceptions and 4,115 passes.

The Packers are probably the only team that is getting fitter this time of year. Solve on the left David Bakhtiari, reverse angle Jare Alexander and linebacker Za’darius Smith are all expected to return after the season to give the Packers that extra star power boost, not that they need it.

Green Bay is one of the favorites to win the Lombardi Cup this season along with Patrick Mahomes and the Chiefs. Whether Rodgers and co can go to the penultimate game remains to be seen, but they will be home in both games if they win the split to give them a good chance of making it to the deep playoffs.
