Rex Ryan could not wait to jump all over Aaron Rodgers after he once again fell short in the postseason.
On Tuesday night, a report emerged suggesting Aaron Rodgers and Davante Adams “would love” to team up on an AFC team.
Speaking this week on ESPN’s “Organized Chaos” podcast, the former NFL coach gave his take on the prediction that Rodgers might end up playing football for the Denver Broncos next season.
“If he goes to Denver, he’s the third-best quarterback in that division,” said Ryan. “You’re going to put him with Justin Herbert and Patrick Mahomes? I’m not. I won’t. I’m gonna tell you why I won’t do that. Aaron Rodgers is phenomenal. But ten years ago, I’d put him in there. But not now. He’s much older.
“Let’s look at the numbers,” Ryan continued about Rodgers. “When his line protects him, in other words, they win every one of their matchups, Aaron Rodgers is by far and away the No. 1 quarterback in the league. He threw 31 touchdown passes and one interception when his offensive line won their matchups. When they did not win their matchups, he is 26th in the league. So if one guy misses, he is 26th in the league.”
After another rough playoff exit for Aaron Rodgers, there seemed to be a lot of pushback on social media from fans out there on the idea of bringing him to play for the Denver Broncos. Rodgers completed 20 of 29 passes for 225, but he failed to find the end zone on a frigid night in Green Bay.
Despite, Rodgers being at Mile High is better than what the team has at QB currently, with respect to Teddy Bridgewater and Drew Lock.
Again, it remains to be seen what decision Rodgers comes to on whether he wants to stay put or move on.
