    I don’t know if McDaniels should take that job unless he gets full control.

    He always does that. More and more people are showing examples such as @SVN that Rodgers can’t see guys open and makes the game harder than it should be for him. Greg Cossell was the first to say this a few years ago and people thought he was trolling.

    He missed a wide open guy early in the NE game in the middle of the field but threw it to a guy that didn’t get the first down.

    Greg Jennings, who played with Rodgers for many years, said on the Colin Cowherd show today that Rodgers would rather take a shot downfield off of a broken play than take the obvious open guy after a 3-5 step drop back in the pocket.

    Rodgers is 0-5 on the road this year.

    Can you imagine what people would be saying if Brady was 0-5 on the road?

    And as many here predicted media blaming everyone else other than Rodgers. He had only 3pts in all of the second half plenty of chances to put the game away.

    Bold lettering was good enough, could have stopped right there.

    This is funny because Rob Demovsky (spelling ?) has been a Rodgers cheerleader for many years. Rodgers has crushed softball questions like that in the past with his “R E L A X” and “run the table” quotes that have served up two major successful runs in his career and gave him tons of MVP hype. He really seems like a tool when he loses it both on the field and off. He is the master of throwing guys under the bus without saying it specifically.

    Reminds me of Manning: “Look guys, I’m trying to be a good teammate here. But let’s just say we had some protection problems.”

    Well, the Pats are on a bye, so that MUST have something to do with it...

    True, I suppose you could interpret that both ways, although most sports pundits seem committed to the narrative that he's a comeback wizard.

    For a guy with a photographic memory and supposedly high IQ, it's interesting how he's never quite been known to read a defense at the elite level Brady and Manning have.

    This is why McCarthy should be fired: 4th/2 with 4:11 remaining in the 4th quarter, and with only one timeout available, ball on your own 33. He should've gone for the 1st down right there by telling Rodgers to give the ball to the rookie RB and get the feck out of his way. Mac instead punts away possession, never to regain it. Feckin gutless.

    He should have been fired after the 2014 NFCCG, when Seattle tuned the ball over 3 times in the first half, and GB had the ball within Seattles own 5, all 3 times, and he kicked field goals all 3 times, with too of them being 4th and goal on the 1 yard line. Seattle was giving up like 14ppg that year, and only turning the ball over 1 time a game or something crazy stupid along those lines. Oh yeah, it was also in Seattle. You have to play to win. He's not a winner.

    I don’t know. You’re essentially saying Green Bay was inside Seattle’s five three times and kicked three field goals. That tells me they were 0/9 in punching it in. I don’t like those odds on fourth down either. I remember that game clearly, and I think “the GOAT” let that one get away more than the coach. Could you imagine if Wilson had thrown FIVE interceptions in the Super Bowl? Or is it even possible for Brady to lose a game against any team if the other QB coughs it up five times? We hear so much about the terrible, horrible, no good for nothing, very bad Green Bay defense, but they were about 10X more effective than the Patriots defense in the Super Bowl and essentially should have won the game on their own, but for a strangely incompetent offense driven by the leagues MVP (and did I mention “the GOAT”?)

    Rodgers played the way many have noted: afraid to make a costly mistake, too conservative, and taking only what the defense wanted him to take. Rodgers played scared. I’m guessing Brady studied that game a lot leading up to the SB and realized you need to take risks and thread needles to beat that great defense, and he did. He made a couple of mistakes, but he made some very ballsy throws with the game on the line, notably, but not limited to, the third down laser to Edelman and the TD pass to Amendola (covered by Thomas.). Brady isn’t afraid to make incredibly difficult passes and risk being the goat of the game, and he never has been. It goes back to Super Bowl 36 and not just his coolness but willingness to throw a receiver open in tight coverage; watch the passes he made to beat the Panthers in SB38... absolutely ridiculous in difficulty on that final drive. I really believe there is a measurable, understandable difference in the way Brady and Rodgers handle do-or-die pressure.

    Back in 2014 Rodgers was 0-35 in 4QC's against teams with a winning record. He ended up getting one from the refs in the playoffs vs Dallas when they ruled Dez Bryant's TD was not a catch, even though it clearly was. He hasn't had one against a winning team since.

    He's added 4 more 4QC's (total of 14) since that Dallas playoff game but none have been against winning teams. I wonder what his record is now vs winning teams. It has to be close to 1-40

    Rodgers is up to 14 4QCs now. The latest was a month ago vs the vaunted 49ers.

    Rodgers seems to be more interested in the rush than his receivers. There was one replay where he looked like a wide-eyed rookie checking out the pass rush.
