Interesting Rodgers/Finley info from Scott W


Check out this comment from reader Scott W (thanks Scott):

“Madison sports talk this morning mentioned Rodgers angrily threw his towel into his locker when asked about the play calling. Finley also expressed his feelings comparable to Rodgers.”

Maybe this is a bigger deal than I thought (or hoped) it is. Just read through Greg Bedard’s updates at jsonline – here is what McCarthy had to say. Read here, for Rodgers comments.

Tough to know what’s really going on here. My guess again is that it’s probably pretty basic. Rodgers wants the offense to be super-explosive mostly because he just wants to win and he knows that our defense and special teams won’t always be able to bail this team out. He knows that without a decent RB, the offense won’t produce like he knows it can considering the overall talent level – so he wants to go back to that dink and dunk offense that moved the ball quite easily against the Bears.

Again, my lean here is with Rodgers. I think he’s right – the offense hasn’t crafted a strong identity yet and they haven’t put together a solid game. But I can’t help but wonder if at least part of this is Rodgers voicing sideways frustration at TT for not picking up another running back. I think the real thrust of his comments might have been aimed at our RBs – and by extension at McCarthy for putting these guys on the field when they aren’t our “best players”.

Maybe this is what needs to happen to force TT to make a move – Rodgers is his boy after all.

    […] touches on the Rodgers' gameplan situation. […]

    MM needs to get out of the way, plain and simple.

  3. Campbell Says:

    They’re 3-1. A lock for the division and more.

    It’s a bit early to be pouting and throwing mini-tantrums. I’d venture the elder Manning waited until he had a resume before stamping his foot. I think Brady had a couple of rings before he questioned anything.

    But Rodgers is super brilliant and super talented, so the GM, MM and the coaching staff will probably do exactly what HE wants.

    Hey Campbell-hope you are right about that lock for the division thing. At this point, I’m not so sure
