    Great read Czabe. Hard to believe there are media ass hats writing that Dak outplayed A-Rod. Dak had all his weapons and faced a defensive backfield decimated by injuries. A-Rod had a converted wideout as his running back (who played well) and was missing his #1 receiver. Reverse the situation and the Packers hang up 50.

    Well said. I have nothing to add except that I want every knee jerk idiot writer who clutched at the low hanging fruit of sports “journalism” and covered the Jordan Rodgers “story” to all line up and bend over so Aaron can throw a fastball right up their corn chutes, one at a time. Remember how Aaron was a bristle narcissist who had peaked? A loner when didn’t have the respect of his teammates? They found on mouthpiece in Greg Jennings, a disgruntled has been who was more than willing to give the idiots a sound bites or two. So the media took that one narrative and ran with it. Yeah. To think that just weeks ago, Aaron Rodgers was a soon to be washed up locker room cancer, according to some. Unfortunately, these morons get paid even when they’re dead wrong. But I’d sure like to see them eat a metric ton of crow

    Sorry for the typos. It was a late night 😉

    As a Chiefs fan I take this to heart. We have a serviceable QB. Despite the abuse he will receive today he’s not the reason the Chiefs lost. It was the injury to Johnson that allowed Bell to go off. Despite the score Pittsburgh could have easily hung 35 on the Chiefs last night.

    Alex Smith did not throw across his body, a 35 yard dart 3 inches from the sideline. Smith is not Rodgers. (Not exactly breaking news) But Alex Smith gave the Chiefs a chance to win. One where they needed others to make the big plays. (About 1-2 more plays) Before dumping Smith – asks how many plays were the Texans from winning.

    Well ESPN announcers who all said Rodgers was insane to think he could turn it around and run the table after stumbling to a 4-6 record while looking not only lost, but possibly finished. So sad that we need these odd sports characters who are no better than their signature rants or silly phrases like Donald Trump’s “you’re fired.” ESPN could use a make over of talent that can be both entertaining and educational of the depth of their knowledge and insight.

    In regards to Rodgers you should add the toughness of Shun Fujimoto from china the guy who dismounted from the Rings with a broken knee cap. Knowing he had to go on to win but knowing it would hurt and possibly get worse.

    Rodgers is good, but your love affair with him is disturbing. Lay off the cheese. The Packers got lucky as heck and you know it.

      The Rodgers to Cook catch was not luck, the two Crosby field goals were not luck. The Packers won because Rodgers is on the cheese and his teammates are eating it too, special magic wizard cheese. On to the Super Bowl Bobby!

    2. 8.2


      Lucky? They outplayed the number one seed in their joint for the majority of the game. What exactly was lucky? The pass? (uhh, no). The kicks? I believe that’s 23 in a row for Crosby in the playoffs.

      Was it the refs? Hahaha…lol. You must be a Skip Bayless worshiper. My condolences.

      R. Rohrer

      I guess hitting a pin-point 30-yd sideline pattern and kicking three 50+yd field goals is “lucky”. Going to Dallas and beating a team as good as the Cowboys had this year has nothing to do with luck.

      JB Cooter

      Confused. In what part of the game were they lucky? When the Cowboys failed to convert the third down on the last drive?

    Rodgers is great but your love affair with him is rather disturbing. Might be time to lay off the cheese.

    As a guy that was alive and watching football in the 70’s I wholeheartedly agree. I did listen to your “discussion” with Andy on the radio and agree with you. The best of yesteryear were great in their day, but could not hold a candle to the best of the day. Look at the teams left standing this year and check the QB, that is enough to know how much that position has evolved. You will not win championships without an elite breed in that position. Yeah, yeah, rules have changed, they are protected, blah, blah. The split second decision making, tight windows, speed on defense etc…, only displays how teams without one will be meh come playoffs. Great post and hope you get a new national show soon, as a Cowboys fan it is a tough listen to get through your local show.

    The athleticism of LeBron James? Don’t think Brady and Manning fit that bill.
