Teams Argue Packers Should Be Forced To Release Aaron Rodgers

Teams Argue Packers Should Be Forced To Release Aaron Rodgers

He wasn't necessarily hurt, though: If Green Bay still was in the hunt, teams argued, Rodgers probably would have played Saturday night against the Vikings.

"We didn't play our best game", Ravens coach John Harbaugh readily acknowledged. Fans took to Twitter to share their thoughts on him being a "dirty player" and some have even gone as far as wishing him bodily harm.

So, yes, there's a chip on his shoulder. For the Packers, RT Jason Spriggs was carted off the field with a knee injury on the first play from scrimmage.

Green Bay has little to nothing at stake, while its next two foes have plenty to play for. However, they hurried him back to action and he started in Week 15. "Be the team who has the opportunity to expose that team. Just like anyone on the defense, we're going to go out there and focus on our jobs". "Be the spoiler", said defensive tackle Linval Joseph, one of Minnesota's four Pro Bowl selections. Per Pro Football Focus, he's been the seventh overall quarterback by their ratings, and he should have no troubles picking apart the struggling Packers pass defense. "He's well-deserving. I think he proved that today". The Packers pushed into the Vikings red zone again, but failed to walk away with points.

Just a hunch, but I'm saying the Packers sneak it out in the end. While the Packers scored a late touchdown and then recovered an onside kick to give themselves hope, they ended the week being eliminated from playoff contention. "As soon as you start guessing and stuff, that's when you get exposed".

The game got off to a frightful start as right tackle Jason Spriggs went down with a knee injury on the first offensive snap of the night.

The Packers (7-8), meanwhile, are in danger of having their first losing season since 2008 and just their third losing season since going 4-12 in 1991. "I'm pretty good at tuning that stuff out". There are so many more adjectives you could say about him. But they both need to play, they're both young. At the 2-minute warning, safety Harrison Smith sealed the victory, grabbing his second interception of the game. However, winning in Lambeau Field at this time of year isn't easy, and it's expected to be under 20 degrees Friday night.

"I'll continue to come back here to work every day, practice as hard as I can, and prepare myself for a game".
