Aaron Rodgers

Aaron Rodgers has hilarious Twitter conversation with Shooter McGavin

Who can forget arguably the funniest villain in the history of sports movies, Shooter McGavin? In 1996′s “Happy Gilmore”, McGavin was the nemesis of lovable bad boy Gilmore, played by Adam Sandler. Shooter has resurfaced over the last year on Twitter, and has garnered himself quite the following with his hilarious references to the movie and outrageous takes on news in the sports world. McGavin is so popular on Twitter these days that Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers took time out of his day to engage in a full blown conversation with Shooter.

As you can see, both Rodgers and Shooter reminisced about Shooter’s prime. What’s the better celebration, Rodgers’ discount double check or Shooter’s single pistol?

Awkward moment between Aaron Rodgers, Brett Favre at yesterday’s NFL Honors

At last night’s NFL Honors, Peyton Manning took home the NFL’s Comeback Player of the Year award for leading the Denver Broncos to a 13-3 record and the No. 1 seed in the AFC after Manning had spent a year away from the NFL thanks to multiple neck surgeries. And who better to present the award than Brett Favre, who was more known during the last years of his career for making two returns to the NFL, one with the Jets and one with the Vikings, than for his play on the field.

However, Favre had a co-presenter at the awards last night….Aaron Rodgers, the man who replaced him in Green Bay as the starting quarterback. They had a humorous, but awkward bit before presenting the award. Transcript of the exchange is below, as is the video:

 

Brett Favre: “You know, Aaron, everyone loves it when a great player makes a comeback.”

Aaron Rodgers: “Yeah, but not always. You know, some people wish great players would just retire and stay retired.”

Favre: “Good to see you too, Aaron.”

Rodgers: “You too, man….. that was awkward.”

 

RGIII: Compare me to Aaron Rodgers, not Cam Newton

“Experts” are known for making lazy comparisons. So, when you look at rookie sensation Robert Griffin III, and you think “who’s the last black guy that could run fast?” Cam Newton is the first guy that comes to mind, so now the two are linked together, even though they have essentially no similarities in their games, on or off the field.

Griffin isn’t satisfied with the laziness easier, and he holds himself to higher standards. He wants to be compared to guys with Super Bowl rings like Aaron Rodgers, not a second-year quarterback of one of the worst teams in the league. He had this to say when asked about the comparisons to Newton:

I’d rather be compared to an Aaron Rodgers or a guy like that,” Griffin said, via Rich Campbell of the Washington Times, “someone who has won Super Bowls.”

Couldn’t have said it better myself, and I love the mindset of RGIII.

Honestly, the best, and maybe only comparison for Griffin is probably Hall-of-Famer Steve Young. That isn’t because I am searching for a white guy to compare him with. Rather, the reasoning is that both players have the ability to run successfully, but would rather throw the ball first, and only use their legs when necessary. And no, I am not putting Griffin in Young’s category whatsoever, because he has a long way to go, but stylistically, I see a lot of Steve Young in Griffin.

I don’t think Griffin would mind the comparison either, as Young has his fair share of jewelry to show off from his football days.

Jermichael Finley’s agent calls out Aaron Rodgers

Aaron Rodgers was called out by Jermichael Finley’s agent Blake Baratz

Public enemy number one in Green Bay may very well be Jermichael Finley’s agent, Blake Baratz. He may have done the unthinkable and that is calling out Green Bay’s favorite athlete, Aaron Rodgers. It all started with Jay Cutler’s press conference, when Baratz criticized him via Twitter. That led to Baratz calling out Rodgers for his lack of leadership and not making his teammates better.

 

This naturally led to the question of why Aaron Rodgers wasn’t included on that list.

 

 

 

The Hall of Fame Quarterback Debate

There are 23 modern-era quarterbacks in the NFL that have been honored with an induction into the Pro Football Hall of Fame. I was able to visit Canton last year, and it’s really quite a spectacular place. It’s an honor for anyone to have themselves immortalized, and their bust mantled to a wall with the greatest members from the NFL’s long, storied history.  As the years go on, there will be more and more players elected to the Hall. That goes without saying. The problem with that is the constant talk of players who are playing now that are being discussed as being worthy of the Hall of Fame. Continue reading

Aaron Rodgers vs. Tom Brady: How Quick We Forget Greatness

Often times in sports (and life), there is a natural human tendency to get caught up in the moment and lose perspective. We crown athletes way before they deserve to be crowned, as Dennis Green once calmly explained. It is hard for me to think of a time that we have been more guilty of this crime than the current NFL season, when I have had to put up with statements like this:

Aaron Rodgers is the greatest quarterback of our generation (I have even seen all-time, which I don’t feel the need to address. I wish I was lying, but I’m not). Not only is Aaron Rodgers not the greatest quarterback of our generation, he isn’t even the best quarterback in the league. That title has, does, and will until further notice belong to Tom Brady Continue reading
