Aaron Rodgers, Steph Curry connect on a deep ball, barely

The annual American Century Championship often generates some sort of a football-relevant highlight. In 2014 (and again in 2015), for example, former NFL linebacker A.J. Hawk flattened a fan with an apparent death wish.

This time around, NBA star Steph Curry wanted to catch a pass from Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers. So Curry ran a post pattern, Rodgers threw the ball, and Curry had to stop in his tracks and fall backward to catch it. (To anyone who would say Curry “laid out” for the pass, the more accurate description is that he “laid back” for it.)

Despite the completion, it was either a poor job of route running by Curry or a poor job of ball placement by Rodgers. We’ll blame it on Curry, primarily so that no one can blame us for having a bias against Rodgers.

  1. If anything Curry saved Rodgers from looking bad… running the post can not be messed up by the receiver when he is only going 5mph… Rodgers has been sitting on the couch for months and needs to get back to the field.

  2. Rodgers is lucky Curry didn’t hurt himself, (Curry too of course) on that underthrown ball.

    Imagine the hubbub if a $200m basketball player twists the ankle or worse, adjusting for a football pass, in a golf fairway, during a golf tournament, weeks after signing the $200m deal?

    No, you have a bias for the Packers.

    Your weekly power rankings all last season proved it, Mike LOL

    Well, despite the Barneys season long consternation over the Packers placement in PFT’s weekly Power Rankings, making it to the NFC Championship game again obviously places them somewhere in the top 5.
    So, the fact that PFT continually ranked them high most of the season was, in fact, well founded.
    Though it shouldn’t have to be repeated, please keep in mind they are Power Rankings and not Standings.

    So the weekly handwringing and whining the Barney fans do over it is really quite ridiculous.
    As was your post.

    Cobb never had broken ribs, it was a punctured lung caused by being miked for the game.

    They mike these players in big games and because they’re big time players. Something a Vikings fan wouldn’t understand.

    We usually ignore your ignorance and lack of facts.

    Curry doesn’t know how lucky he is. Cobb and Nelson both cracked their ribs due to poorly thrown balls by Rodgers.

    This is an outright lie. If you’re going to slam Aaron Rodgers, at least be willing to say something that is true.

  6. There was a power outage in the Twin Cities yesterday at around 5:30 PM. Now I know why.

    All the Packer-hating stalker-trolls had their auto-notifications go off at the same time when this Packer story was posted.

  7. Once Curry & AR get on the same page, they could be one of the most feared passing combos in the league. But that is what the Viking-dum fears most.

  8. A-rodg is lobbying the league to include those yards in his stats. Every bit of padding helps.
