Classic QB Matchup

October 17th, 2020

Geeked for Packers-Bucs.

NFL folks who work in suits and make big money and slurp down martinis on a daily basis in midtown Manhattan gin joints live for games like Sunday.

It is the matchup of two future Hall of Fame quarterbacks, park-violating, home-invading, NFLPA-ignoring, down-forgetting Bucs quarterback Tom Brady against prickly Aaron Rodgers.

Joe likes Rodgers and he is one of the most fun quarterbacks to watch. His back-shoulder fades are freaking beautiful. But damn he is a whiner.

Last week on his regular appearance on the “Pat McAfee Show,” Rodgers spent a good chunk of his spot kvetching about sports media and how corrupt it is and how ignorant sports media members are. Rodgers apparently is really bothered when network suits promote games as Quarterback-A vs. Quarterback-B.

Rodgers whined that he doesn’t play other teams’ quarterbacks. …No sh!t Aaron? Joe learns something new every day.

Maybe Rodgers is not aware that he is filthy rich in part because TV networks know how to promote and sell the NFL. Maybe Rodgers hasn’t thought about that?

How would you like TV networks and others to promote your game with the Bucs, Aaron? Alex Cappa vs. Kenny Clark? Yeah, that will get people to set their DVRs and phone notifications for kickoff.

Calm down, Aaron. Go make a few left turns with Danica. Relax. Life is good for you outside of being chased by Shaq Barrett. Maybe Olivia Munn will still let you cry on her shoulder for a counseling session?

At any rate, popular national radio and TV personality Adam Schein, speaking on “Time to Schein” seen weeknights on CBS Sports Network, loves the matchup of the Bucs and Packers (oh, sorry Aaron: Brady vs. Rodgers).

Schein believes Rodgers is on pace to win the NFL Most Valuable Player award. And Schein also wonders why Brady’s five-touchdown performance from two weeks ago is all but forgotten?

You can see Schein’s take on tomorrow’s game in the CBS Sports Network video below.

    After Thursday’s night game, it’s a safe pick. However, I’d say this is a trap game for the Pack. The Bucs got a nap and practice time in to properly prepare.

    Almost full strength, I love our chances!

    In BA I Trust!

    LOL, Yes,, we got a Nap, but the Packers are also coming off a Bye week.

    gotta hope the week off causes the packers to be sleepy like joe biden…

    Joe – You need to get back to current news. Danica is gone, has been for months. Aaron is baching it again last I heard.

  5. TheBradyBunch Says:

    Read it again John! He knows that and is simply referencing some of the talent Rodgers has dated in the past. He also mentioned another ex to highlight the point he was making.

    lol. He does whine for sure.

    I agree with Sport. This is obviously a very tough game but perhaps we become the trap team instead of the trapped.

    I love extra days off. And I love Green Bay in the afternoon 90 degree sun. Hope they end up in dark unis. I no longer remember how unis are determined. It’s already snowing on Michigan’s UP.

    Yup. Split from Ms. NASCAR a few months ago. He’ll pick up another celebrity arm candy. He always does. Not that there’s anything wrong with that. 🙂

    Ninety-nine percent of the people that respond in chat are expressing their biases. None of your readers respond to the topic of your post. Most sports fans do not read or respond to sports sites. I started on your site because I was a Buccaneers, since 1976, living in Hawaii. I had no Buccaneers fans to commiserate with. I found your site. Horrible fans. I for one turn down the tv because I do not want to listen to the rhetoric. It is unfair to say the least. I do believe a more intelligent approach to sports would result in more participation and readers. Let us be realistic… Rodgers vs Brady? In a team sport…? Write or talking about football friends a quarterback perspective when the quarterback is such a small part of the game is not intelligent at all.

  10. Joe Says:

    None of your readers respond to the topic of your post.

    Well, Joe isn’t going to say “none.” But clearly you are on the right path. Generally, the people that respond to a post are in the lower single digits.

    People who market a product are not going to shoot for the same percentage of people who respond to an online story. That’s nuts. People who market a product are trying to reach a vast audience.

    In football, that is not the Greg Cosells of the world or Chris Simms or Mike Florios or Emmanuel Achos. There is a reason why there are very few Xs and Os shows on TV and the few that are, they are broadcast when America is sound asleep. Those type of shows don’t draw any eyeballs.

    Joe personally loves Xs and Os shows but Joe is a weirdo freak. In other words, Joe is in a vast minority.

    Joe will also argue with you that a quarterback is not just a part of a team. That’s just a stupid, defensive meathead analogy. That’s 1950s high school nonsense. A quarterback touches the ball on every offensive play. That’s like saying a pitcher in baseball is just part of the team. Rubbish!

    Mirrormirroronthewall, ok we get it. You’re one of those that’s always the “smartest in the room”……or at least that’s what YOU think.
