Rodgers is off to a hot start after four weeks, so let’s ignore that he’s been an average QB - by many metrics including adjusted yards/attempt - since 2015. Media pretending like he’s been playing at this level all these years.

rank of defenses Green Bay has played so far

25th overall, 28th ppga
28th overall, 29th ppga
7th overall, 26th ppga
31st overall, 30th ppga

Minnesota, Detroit, New Orleans and Atlanta

and before some fudge packer lurker says that's because they played Green Bay here is what those teams ranks would be in points allowed per game if you removed the packers game

20th
21st
22nd
31st

So ya playing GB has knocked 3 of them a little but they are all bottom 10 defenses so far

You’re sitting there talking about “good sports” like this is Pop Warner. These are professionals and they are adults. If anyone gets butthurt over a post-game handshake, go back to following the pee-wees.

I read a fantastic article many years ago that showed that the all-time great HCs, Lombardi, Landry, Brown etc. never shook hands after games. The same was true of the players because it would lead to fights. I wonder why things are so different now that they have love-ins after games?

I can't believe how many responses to the trolls that I see here. At some point we need to let them fade away.

One of the things that really impressed me about Brady while he was here was how hot he'd get for stretches in big games. He always seemed to see where the ball should go and delivered the goods, from his first season to his last and in terrible weather. Now that Brady is older, it's his recognition that seems to be fading and not his physical skills. He's still damn good though.

I believe Bradys physical skills are declining to some extent. Thats why Brady needed more talent these last few years.

Add up all the post season games that Brady has played in and youve got a couple of additional 16 game seasons of football.

Which is why I expected Brady to show his age more.

In the Starting Line-Up
Mike Evans is like 6'4 and a TD machine
Yeah and he has not been close to 100 % healthy this season. Granted nobody will be as the year goes on but he is definitely hobbled. Evans going to be more explosive once he gets healthier, the key for TB is Godwin though. He's the one who gets separation right away and he too has not been healthy whatsoever.

I disagree. The problem, IMO, is he doesn't want to take the hits the same as yesteryear. He knows it isn't wise to take the same punishment as before, and he's right. Troy Brown used to like to say something to the effect of taking less punishment on individual plays to be available for your team in the long run.

Last 2 games Brady has been getting pummeled. Even in their big comeback he was getting hit hard.
