Seeing as I’m the world’s biggest Chicago Bears fan, this is very painful for me to admit, but heading into Conference Championship weekend, it’s time I got it off my chest. OK, here it goes: Aaron Rodgers is the greatest, most clutch, most talented quarterback to ever throw a football in the NFL. There, I said it. Happy, Packers fans?
Seriously, look at the numbers Rodgers has put up. As a starter, Rodgers has thrown for over 12,000 yards, 86 TDs to only 31 INTs, and a quarterback rating of just a smidge under 100. And he gets even better when it matters more. In the playoffs, Rodgers completes over 73 percent of his passes and has only thrown one INT against 10 touchdowns! He can not be stopped! Forget about Bradshaw or Montana or Brady, Aaron Rodgers is the new gold standard for quarterback play in the NFL. There will never be another like him.
Hope is lost for the Bears this weekend. I mean, seriously, what can you do against a quarterback who can throw short, deep or intermediate passes right on target. He can make all the throws he needs to make to win games, whether he’s in the pocket or out on the run. He even has two rushing touchdowns in his playoff career!
Nope, the Bears can’t do anything about it. They might as well just run off and hide. Go hibernate like real bears do. There is no stopping Aaron Rodgers. He will continue to dominate against any and all defenses that come his way until he is hoisting that Super Bowl trophy. Let us all take this time to bow down to the mighty, mighty Aaron Rodgers.
*In case you thought I lost my mind, don’t worry, I haven’t. This is my attempt as a Bears fan to jinx Aaron Rodgers into the worst start of his playoff career. Do you think my jinx will work? Let me know in the comments.
