    What Happened in Green Bay

    A checked-out coach. A tuned-out QB. A soap opera where there should have been a dynasty. And those who saw the Aaron Rodgers-Mike McCarthy wreckage up close say we didn't know the half of it.

    There had to be a breaking point. An incident, an argument, a loss, a moment that doomed the football marriage of Aaron Rodgers and Mike McCarthy.
    Anyone could see the Packers quarterback and head coach were headed for divorce well before that inconceivable 20-17 loss to the lowly Cardinals in December, the one that finally got McCarthy fired. Death stares and defiance from Rodgers had been constant for years by then.
    But how far back do you have to go to find the beginning of the end?


    Was it Week 3 of the 2017 season, when cameras caught Rodgers barking "Stupid fucking call!" at his coach?...........

    I heard it started when McCarthy switched to Geico and saved hundreds of dollars on his car insurance.

    Clearly......it's Ben's fault.

    He somehow managed to make a superior QB like Aaron Rodgers only win 6 games. Ben can't even do that.

    Wilson has taken some hits for articles that blamed him rather than his defense for Seahawks drama until the Super Bowl defense broke up

    Ben blew up his reputation for being perceived a drama queen on injuries (which Cowher helped reinforce) and for well known off the field crap in the first half of his career

    OTOH Rodgers has managed to keep his image clean enough to bank more in endorsement $$$ than anyone in the NFL other than Peyton (Brady could have done it but since he is the second income in his family did not need or care to do so)

    That has resulted in Ben then becoming a "bad teammate" while Rodgers was a "fiery competitor" when the locker room turmoil surfaced in Pittsburgh and Green Bay over the past several years

    Bradshaw used to call many of his own plays. To switch things up it could keep the other D off balance as long as the O was disciplined enough.

    Comment was sarcasm but to respond, my feelings are:

    Ben blew his reputation up on the rape allegations. Nothing more, nothing less. Injuries & motorcycles had nothing to do with it. The media “cut ties” after the rape allegations. Since those allegations, Ben has never been a media personality. Rodgers boosted his q-rating by being a fun loving guy who people felt bad for sitting behind Brett Favre and was awarded an “under-dog” role because of where he was drafted. Then his photo bombs of the captains line up photos on a weekly basis became a thing and he became a lovable guy in the public eye. State Farm became a thing and it’s all humor and fun loving. Ben doesn’t have those surroundings. Media spins shit for Ben, media spins roses and rainbows for Rodgers.

    Re: What Happened in Green Bay

    I thought Roger's sounded very arrogant by referring to the sources as "irrelevant and bitter". Like how dare they talk about ME like that.

    Aaron Rodgers of Green Bay Packers Had Broken Leg in 2018

    MILWAUKEE (105.7 The Fan) -- Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers went down with a knee injury in Week 1 of the 2018 NFL season. Though he returned in that game to mount a come-from-behind win over the Chicago Bears and didn't miss any subsequent starts, he clearly wasn't 100 percent in the following weeks as his mobility remained hampered and his knee was braced.

    What many didn't realize, though, was the extent of Rodgers' injury.


    In an interview Monday, Rodgers revealed the details of the injury suffered under the weight of Bears defensive lineman Roy Robertson-Harris. Not only did he play through a sprained left MCL, he played through a tibial plateau fracture -- a break in the upper portion of his shin bone, just below his sprained MCL.


    That's right, Rodgers played an entire NFL season -- enduring hit after hit after hit -- with a broken leg. The two-time MVP threw for 4,442 yards and 25 touchdowns on that leg as the Packers finished 6-9-1.

    Exactly.

    That's exactly what they would say about Ben.

    "He had a hang nail!" ……"Drama queen!" "Whatever Ben...…."

    We all know that's exact how many here would frame it.

    First Lake Tahoe sexual assault allegation came after the second Super Bowl win in summer of 2009.

    When Ben claimed he had played SB XLIII with broken ribs, a claim which the Steelers declined to support, ESPN portrayed it as Ben being the drama queen again

    Roethlisberger has previously exaggerated or misstated injuries he supposedly suffered during his five-season career.
    The day after the January 2005 AFC Championship Game, Roethlisberger said he broke two toes during the 41-27 loss to New England. Coach Bill Cowher emphatically denied that, saying the quarterback merely aggravated a toe injury from college. Roethlisberger never brought up the issue again.
    Roethlisberger also said during training camp in 2006 that he played the Steelers' Super Bowl-winning season of 2005 with a broken thumb. Roethlisberger missed no playing time after supposedly being hurt on Nov. 28, 2005, in Indianapolis, and the team never revealed any such injury.
    After Cowher resigned following the 2006 season, Roethlisberger acknowledged he and the coach didn't always get along -- in part, apparently, because Cowher felt the quarterback exaggerated the extent of injuries.

    Ben’s reputation hit rock bottom after Milledgeville, but stories such as the one above from ESPN and about the only endorsement deal a QB who won 2 Super Bowls lost after the sexual assault claims was one for beef jerky reflect his image and endorsement appeal was pretty bad before it got toxic.

    Agreed that after Milledgeville the cake was baked on Ben being a media piñata to blame for any controversy even after he decided or was scared into cleaning up his act

    It also doesn't help when the league commissioner goes out of his way to make a point of publicly trashing the guy during the week leading up to the last Super Bowl the Steelers played in while at the same time musing about how "cool" it would be for Michael Vick to win a Super Bowl after Vick spent over a year in a federal pen.

    That was also the same season that Goodell made Harrison the NFL poster boy for dirty hits (while of course, NFL.com was still hocking images of said "dirty" hits). Man, what I wouldn't give for the Steelers to have that game back just so Harrison could've given that dickhead the what-for right there on the podium.

    To the point of the thread, Rodgers has pretty much always struck me personally as being a douche, and now it's finally coming out that, well, he pretty much is one.

    Re: What Happened in Green Bay

    About Ben rep's the media has been totally against him since the rape allegations and, he could pull 100 people out of a burning building and, I'm sure the media would spin a negative story out of it. Ben never gets the benefit of a doubt since then and, always the media's favorite person to hate on.
