Aaron Rodgers admits NFL rules don’t make it easy on tacklers

Randall Cobb, Matt Elam AP

Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers criticized Ravens safety Matt Elam for tackling Packers receiver Randall Cobb at the knee, but upon further reflection, Rodgers has acknowledged that his criticism might have been a little unfair.

The patriotic-sounding Rodgers began his comments to ESPNWisconsin.com by saying, “Everybody is entitled to their own opinion, that’s what’s great about the first amendment, the United States of America and the Constitution.” As he began to explain his own opinion, however, he admitted that Ravens safety James Ihedigbo made a good point about how hard it is for defensive players to tackle without getting flagged under current NFL rules.

“Again, I thought the conversation I had with James was a very interesting one because I may have not understood how much they think about the rules and how difficult it is for them to find that target area,” Rodgers said. “And I respected what he said. I didn’t have to agree with it, but I still think you can respect opinion even if you don’t agree with it.”

Ultimately, Rodgers still believes that Elam could have targeted Cobb in the midsection and avoided a serious injury.

“We’re professional athletes, we have great body control, that’s why we’re in the NFL. And I thought there was ample time to find a proper target area,” Rodgers said.

Here’s video of Elam’s hit on Cobb. PFT Planet, tell us what you think.

    Good to see that State Farm had Rodgers “double check” his comments. I hope the Super Fans can be reached for comment.

    Aaron Rodgers is a tremendous leader.

  4. twonis says: Oct 16, 2013 9:43 AM

    Is the NFL making it tough on defenders with all the tackling rules? Yes.

    Did Matt Elam drop his dome straight into Cobb’s knee and was it completely unnecessary? You bet.

    Watch the video from any angle. He had enough time that he could have stood him up and allowed the other DBacks to come in and mug Cobb to try to get the ball loose…like a good safety would. Never mind the fact that he had plenty of time to drop his shoulder into Cobb’s waiste, wrap him up, and take him to the ground like any person who has ever donned a helmet learns when they’re still in Pop Warner. It was a legal but completely unnecessary hit. He was going for injury.

  6. braven4evr says: Oct 16, 2013 9:43 AM

    I appreciate Rodgers acknowledgement; but if Elam targets the mid section and the receiver lowers his head and contact is made, then it’s a penalty on the defender.

  7. f0rem4n says: Oct 16, 2013 9:44 AM

    I’m okay for protecting the QB as they do, and flagging helmet leading hits. It seems fairly easy to deal with while still letting the players actually tackle and hit each other in the way that we as fans love. Shoulder leading wrap you up tackles are often just as productive as “spearing”.

    Somehow though, maybe it’s the added fines, or the q

    Queue the Viking trolls logging on to take a verbal shot at one of the better QB’s in the NFL.

    Because your team hasn’t had a franchise Qb in 3 decades, we understand your frustration. It isn’t easy to win a Superbowl like Rodgers has done, it makes it nearly impossible when you flush high first rounders down the toilet because they can’t throw a simple 20 yard down and out due to a noodle arm. Didn’t your scouts see that at the combine?

  10. jikkle49 says: Oct 16, 2013 9:46 AM

    My first thought when I saw the play was that it wouldn’t have happened if the current flag happy rules weren’t in place.

    Before those rules were in place a Safety would’ve went higher to try to dislodge the ball but now they want no part of a 15 yard flag and fine so they go low which has the unfortunate effect of hitting a guys knees like what happened to Cobb.

  11. mvp43 says: Oct 16, 2013 9:46 AM

    Boarderline, but was legal…… It looked as if he had enough time to target the middle but chose to go low even before Cobb caught the pass.

    Somehow though the NFL has over stepped this simple principle and confused and muddled the whole issue. Most would argue in doing so have taken a lot of the character out of the game.

    Does anyone else remember meaningful kickoffs? Those were the days…

  13. getyourownname says: Oct 16, 2013 9:55 AM

    Does mean he has never discussed these issues with defenders on his own team?

  14. gsomatt says: Oct 16, 2013 9:58 AM

    maybe if the players were forced to form tackle instead of “hit”, these things wouldn’t happen.

    But if the puss DBs had to tackle at the waist, they’d feel as much of the impact. They don’t want that. That want to give the pain and not accept it.

    Weak.

    Man speaks the truth and is honest, and it pisses a lot of people off. I’m a huge Packer fan, and while sometimes he rubs me the wrong way, it’s a type of personality you want – Being thin-skinned makes him a better QB because he plays with that chip.

    As far as his TD celebration – THAT’S ridiculous??? Hah – You obviously haven’t been watching the clowns when they make their way to the endzone for the past several years.

  16. toybkshr says: Oct 16, 2013 10:01 AM

    Yes, it was low & hit the knee, and prob qualifies as a semi cheap shot. But, those of you that are saying he hit the knee with the helmet are mistaken. Look at the play in slo mo, you clearly see the shoulder pad hit the knee and the helmet didn’t hit either knee.

  17. leogirl22 says: Oct 16, 2013 10:02 AM

    I was at the Packers vs Ravens game and it was a bang bang quick play. It was right in front of me. With how fast these players are, the Ravens safety really didn’t have any other option trying to stop a fast moving object.

  18. poridge1214 says: Oct 16, 2013 10:02 AM

    This safety conscious Aaron Rodgers is the same QB who criticized everyone in the Pro Bowl 2 years ago for not playing hard enough in the PRO BOWL.

    Aaron, you’re a top3 QB, incredible player. But just shut up.

  19. toybkshr says: Oct 16, 2013 10:09 AM

    from above;
    “Man speaks the truth and is honest”

    Like being indignant and arrogant in his defense of a MLB player(his buddy) being innocent of steroid use, who is now on suspension and admits the use. That’s what pisses people off.

    He’s got the Drew Brees syndrome, chimes in with his opinions being fact.

    And if anyone knows about expressing their opinion its Aaron Rodgers. Defenders hits, McCarthy’s playcalling on the field, a receiver dropping the ball, a Mark Sanchez’ photoshoots, the Pro Bowl performance, baseball players drug tests, would this guy give it a rest, please?!

    Do away with the helmets and pads ala rugby. There might be a couple of Kamikazes left, but the majority of players would alter their running and tackling methods without the “weapons”.

  24. drillbit19k says: Oct 16, 2013 10:38 AM

    “Every time he opens his mouth, I dislike him more. ”

    Why because he had a dialogue with a member of the offending team and like a reasonable, objective thinker he altered his perception like a person should? Yeah total case for intense dislike and bias, you are clearly an intuitive thinker.

    As far as the Braun/PED issue. Imagine a cop asked you if your best friend had committed a particular crime say murder. But prior to that your friend (if you have any) had given you an assertive plea in his defense which include an alibi. Would you hem and haw in front of the cop and say maybe, or it was possible? Or would you do what EVERYONE else would and say no I was told it didn’t happen. No your gonna back your friend up so let it go.

    I wish those in the anti-Rodgers camp would list the most plausible reason for hating him, he wins games for a team other than yours. And if you’re an NFCN backer, he outright owns your team.

    If your best friend and business partner was adamant that he didn’t do something, wouldn’t you believe him? Especially if the only evidence was thrown out as being faulty? If not, count me as being glad we’re not acquaintances…You give your best friends the benefit of the doubt.

    ~~~~~
    Have you played the sport at any level? That is proper form tackling in Pop Warner but as you progress through HS, College, NFL guys are bigger, faster, and more athletic. Proper form tackling becomes harder if not a risky tackle to attempt as the runner could juke for a miss or break the arm wrap up. When was the last time someone successfully used a proper form tackle on Adrian Peterson, Gronkowski, or Megatron? Combine that with the safety rules and defenders have a tough go.

    If you can’t at least admit that the player is good, why bother making a negative comment about him?

    Shlort, never said he isn’t a good player. He might be the best QB in the league. But that doesn’t mean he can’t make stupid comments time and time again. As for being jealous, nope. Andrew Luck is my QB. Wouldn’t take anyone over him. And your last comment must not apply to me because not many teams have won more games than mine in the last 15 years. And MN1288, I wouldn’t blindly support a friend so publicly when it was pretty clear to EVERYONE that Ryan Braun was guilty.

  35. settheraytojerry2001 says: Oct 16, 2013 11:18 AM

    Look at the picture. If he hits Cobb in the mid section he probably jars the ball loose for an incomplete pass. Plus you are taught to see what you hit meaning keep your head up and wrap up the ball carrier. Elam is looking at the ground(lowering his head the NFL does not like this) if Cobb had caught the pass a split second sooner he probably leaps over him or bounces off him and scores. Very poor tackling form although it is legal.

  37. trytobnimble says: Oct 16, 2013 11:27 AM

    Aaron Rodgers opinion is that NFL defenders should back off and allow any receiver who catches the ball a clear path to the end zone. If you can’t hit ‘em high … and you can’t hit ‘em low … that only leaves the groin area for attack. Maybe I’m finally starting to understand what kind of game the NFL wants to turn football into.

    They should just wear pink all season long.

    Tackling SHOULD be hard. It’s a professional sport! Why shouldn’t those doofuses have to try hard, be careful, and use skill when tackling? Any idiot can fall into someone’s knees. Where are all the tough guys who can wrap someone up and bring them down. THAT’s football, not this sucker-punch garbage.

    Fans who whine about the NFL turning into flag football – THIS is the problem. Entitled players who don’t want to man up and take on the bigger challenge.

    Tackling is hard! Do it anyway! You’re getting paid big money to do it!

    When you slow the tape down and then watch it, sure, it’s easy to say Matt Elam could have avoided the hit on Cobb’s knees. But the game is so fast and intense, do you really think he had the time to think, “Man, he’s their best receiver, so I’m gonna size his knee up at this angle and then take him out. They’ll be screwed then.” If he waited that long, Cobb would have scored, the Packers would have kicked the PAT, and then would have been lining up for kick off all the while Elam is still processing his thoughts on how to tackle Cobb. It was a bang, bang play and, unfortunately, it resulted in an injury to an up an coming, young, potentially great WR. If this were 10 years ago, it probably wouldn’t have happened because defenders were actually able to TACKLE back then instead of being forced to go at player’s knees. Seriously, I really find it hard to believe Matt Elam would be that vicious. I blame the NFL, Goodell, and their lame rules. But it’s only going to get worse before it gets better…..

    You are WRONG, WRONG and WRONG. Driver and Jennings were whining because they were essentially kicked to the curb by the Packers, not going to pay that kind of $$ to washed up players. Besides the fact the Queens don’t have a qb that could hit the ocean from the beach Jennings just isn’t the playmaker he once was and is showing by the fact he can barely get open against defenses stacked against AP.

    This is awesome.

  63. cookenbauer says: Oct 16, 2013 2:50 PM

    Why do people insist on the idea that hitting 200 lbs WRs that run 4.4 forties in the midsection is such an easy concept?

    NFL defenders study film constantly to simply have a chance to be at the right place at the right time…let alone be one of the best athletes in the world that even makes it possible. They have to react instantly…and even then, it’s hard enough to be in the right position, let alone make a perfect form tackle every time.

    Everyone watches slo-mo replay and acts like the game operates at that speed. Beyond stupid. Even when the player is going for the midsection…the WR often ducks down at the last second and would then create helmet contact and bingo, personal foul. I’m all for making a conscientious effort to prevent headhunting…but these rules are nonsensical.

    Yep..you are right Floriotheoreo,Favre would never let it become an issue like Rodgers..after he talked to Elam ,he d jump on stage with Mooch and tell him about it,then he d call Ed Werder,Rachel Nichols,and Chris Mortenson, and if THAT wasn’t enough he d have Deanna call up Greta Van Sustern so he can explain “his” side of what happened…yep ,THATs how Favre would handle that drama.

    It was a perfect example how to never tackle anyone. The human dart has no place in football on any level. Mostly for the darts sake. I honestly dont want to see one of these kids turn into a quad or die on the field because they forgot how to tackle.
