Rodgers says NFC players "embarrassed themselves"

65 posts in this topic

Aaron Rodgers of Green Bay Packers says NFC Pro Bowlers 'embarrassed themselves' - ESPN. He didn't name names, but he realized that the boos started early in the game. Since QB coach Tom Clements was calling the plays, I'm sure he knew when an NFC player didn't know the play. He called out "some of the guys on the NFC side" but both sides were taking it easy.

The one play that really stood out was in the first quarter. On a handoff to LeSean McCoy, he got the ball and all the offensive and defensive lineman just stood up and shuffled their feet. It was like a walk through drill in practice, and not a live play in pads. The boo birds were out afterwards.

On his second touchdown pass, Darrelle Revis was in coverage against Larry Fitzgerald. Revis overran the play and he didn't seem too interested in taking Fitzgerald on. But everything was much different in the second half, especially when Cam Newton was in the game. Revis in particular was in the face of every receiver, and he ended the day with two pass defenses.

I'm sure most people don't care, but it's interesting how Rodgers takes pride in what he does even when the results don't much matter.

I'm sure Rodgers was taking note how awful that oline was playing.

The NFL Pro Bowl is an embarrassment in itself.

They ought to just make it a flag football game and be done with it.

...or just do away with it entirely...but, the NFL does like it's revenue...no matter how bogus the product.

...selling preseaon games (practice games) at regular season prices as proof.

I said in the ProBowl thread, I'd rather watch them play a poker tourny...or Madden.

He probably saw how the d-line was getting on Cam and didn't step up or the NFC's defense.

Yeah, the NFL has embarrassed itself with the Pro Bowl. It's an absolute joke.

Instead of $50K to the winners and $25K to the losers, the pro bowl should be $100K to the winners, and the losers get nothing. Plus the NFL should start some sort of punishment to the guys that dodge it without injury. Or just make it a celebrity flag football game like the old rock and jock football games.

    • Is this dude a real life person or an alt of @GOOGLE JIM BOB COOTER that is a living joke exemplifying the white culture thread? 
    • lol no one takes him seriously. He gets a courage award for bringing his hand-me-down  dad-politics into ttb while still asking to himself, "what does ttb mean again?"
    • I'm extremely pumped by this addition. It has to be the biggest addition since the team came back to Charlotte. I was too young to follow the original talented Hornets (Im sad), so I'm not going back that far. People and fans can say what they want about D12, but the man still have a lot left in his tank. And, Im tired of hearing how he doesnt fit in today's game anymore. There are only a handfull of big men today that I can really say, can shoot the ball: Davis, Towns, Embiid, Cousins and Aldridge.  Howard can still dominate! That's all that matters. The only neg I will give Howard is that I do see a lack of desire/effort to play at times. But, I believe MJ can help motivate him back to being a dominant big man again for next two years here.  Dwight Howard averaged a double-double last season: 13.5 ppg, 12.7 rpg, 1.2 bpg, and 1.4 apg.  D12 had "53", I said FIFTY-THREE double doubles last season. He had six games where he averaged 20 rebounds or more.  Guess who was the last Bobcats/Hornets era to even come close to that number.....Emeka Okafor in 2004 as a rookie with 47 double doubles (35.6 MPG). Then Big Al had 42 in 2013 (35.0 MPG). Howard did that while averaging 29.7 min per game. If you count out his 2014 season where he only played in 41 games, last season was the LEAST amount of minutes played per game in Howard's career.  Only three guys (Towns, Whiteside and Gobert) averaged more double doubles than Howard in 2016. And only four other guys ( Whiteside, Drummond, DJordan and Gobert) averaged more RPG than Howard last season. Other than Towns, none of those guys mentioned above can really shoot the ball any better than Howard. But, teams still want them on their teams for big contracts.    D12 will be a beast this upcoming season!
