“Any time you change quarterbacks from Hall of Famer to Hall of Famer, you go Stabler to Rich Gannon, it’s going to be a little bit of an adjustment,” Adams told CBS Sports. “Both are great players and great to be around.”
Fans blasted him for the comparison between Rodgers, a four-time MVP and Super Bowl champion, and Carr, who is 0–1 in the postseason.
Aaron Rodgers clearly saw those comments and had the perfect response to it. On Wednesday, Rodgers was asked if it was good to have Allen Lazard back at practice.
“Yeah, I mean, it’s always tough going from Hall of Famer to Hall of Famer,” Rodgers said, mocking what Adams said about Carr.
After a bunch of social media backlash, Adams attempted to clarify his comments.
“What I’m not going to do is take away from that statement because, why is Derek not a Hall of Famer?” he said. “What I meant, I left one key word out of there because that’s not exactly what I meant. But I do think that Derek’s career is Hall of Fame-worthy, and why not? Does he have the MVPs right now? No. Has he won a Super Bowl? Not yet. That’s obviously what we’re chasing.”
The Packers traded Adams back in March for a massive haul and with his arrival comes high expectations for Carr. It’s still going to be a tough task as they sit in a division that has Patrick Mahomes, Russell Wilson, and Justin Herbert.
