NFL coordinator describes how ‘scary’ Packers QB Aaron Rodgers is
The Green Bay Packers selected a quarterback, Utah State’s Jordan Love, in the first round of the 2020 NFL Draft, perhaps signaling the nearing end of the Aaron Rodgers era. According to one NFL coordinator, Rodgers can still very much intimidate opposing defenses on the gridiron.
“When he’s humming, he’s still Tier 1, without question. The things he can do, maybe outside Mahomes, nobody can do. He’s lost a little bit of athleticism. But when he can move around, and beat you inside out, holy s—, he’s scary.”
Another NFL defensive back noticed the 36-year-old’s “killer” instinct.
“One time our safety ran out with the running back, Rodgers checked into something to beat the safety, then proceeded to kill him all game … He notices matchups like no other.”
Once upon a time, the Packers selected Rodgers out of California while rostering veteran star gunslinger Brett Favre under center. Now it appears times have changed — yet Rodgers is still reviewed as a dangerous threat at quarterback.
Last season, then-rookie head coach Matt LaFleur’s Packers went 13-3 with a fully healthy Rodgers, losing in the 2019 NFC Championship game and finishing one matchup removed from facing Patrick Mahomes and the Kansas City Chiefs in Super Bowl LIV.
Rodgers could very well rest on his laurels as a one-time Super Bowl champion, two-time league MVP, and eight-time Pro Bowl selection. But the Packers vet still desires another title in his distinguished career. According to these anonymous sources, his killer mindset may take him there.
