New Rule: Anytime Aaron Rodgers throws a pick, the very least he can do is viciously clobber the unlucky defender who caught the football, like he did after Jason David got his first interception of the night.
New Rule: Derrick Frost can’t ever touch a football again.
New Rule: You’re not being a “smart,” “agressive,” “bold,” or “creative” playcaller when you go for 2 when you’re up 22 points in the 4th quarter. You’re just running up the score.
New Rule: You can’t blame Aaron Rodgers for the loss. He threw for 248 yards and 2 TD’s. He ran for 36 yard and another score. Only one of Rodgers’ 3 interceptions can really be blamed on the young QB. The first one was a result of Greg Jennings slipping, and the third pick was a desperation throw when Green Bay was already losing big in the 4th quarter and had no choice but to take shots at the endzone. Admittedly, the second INT was just a horribly inaccurate throw.
New Rule: 29 points from your offense should be more than enough to keep the game competitive. I’m looking at you, Green Bay defense…
New Rule: Stop comparing Aaron Rodgers to Brett Favre. First of all, if you’re an objective observer, you’ll realize that the two have remarkably similar stats, and neither QB is clearly playing better than the other. Secondly, you miss the main point of the logic behind Ted Thompson’s decision to cut ties with Favre. He was looking at what he thought was best for the team 2 or 3 years from now, not 2 or 3 months from now. Regardless of whether you supported Thompson’s decision or were ready to kick him to the curb, stop comparing Aaron Rodgers to Brett Favre. Please.
New Rule: Tony Kornheiser can never step foot inside the Monday Night Football broadcasting booth ever again. Never, ever, ever. When he was not talking about how “pretty” ESPN’s graphics are or debating whether McCarthy was using pens to make political statements, he was busy violating our previous “No Favre-Rodgers comparisons” rule. After Kornheiser’s 127th Favre-Rodgers comparison, his exasperated colleagues tried to steer the conversation back to the game, at which point Kornheiser replied: “I don’t know why I’m here if not to give that kind of perspective.” Exactly, Tony. I don’t know why you’re there either. Go back to PTI where it’s your job to be loud, obnoxious, and cantankerous.
