Anthony Barr: Aaron Rodgers spewed F-bombs at me

Getty Images

Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers says Vikings linebacker Anthony Barr gave him the finger as Rodgers left the field after breaking his collarbone on a hit from Barr. But Barr says Rodgers isn’t telling the whole story.

Barr wrote on Twitter that he wasn’t even looking in Rodgers’ direction until Rodgers started shouting F-bombs at Barr. It was only then, Barr says, that he reacted to Rodgers.

“After the play I go back to the huddle, don’t even look or say a word to him,” Barr wrote. “Once he gets up I’m waiting for the play call, and hear someone shouting all kinds of profanities. I look over and it’s [Rodgers] calling me all kinds of names, F you this F you that as he’s walking off the field. So naturally I responded. I don’t care if you Aaron Rodgers or Mr. Rodgers, if you say something like that you’re gonna get a response from me.”

Barr concluded by saying it’s been 13 days and Rodgers needs to “get over it.”

  1. It’s so unlike Rodgers to be dramatic and attempt to paint himself in the vest light possible. Truth is he’s a great quarterback, one of the best ever, but he’s an unlikeable princess and if he didn’t have a Golden right arm he’d be viewed much like Jay Cutler.

  2. Barr is right and the cameras that day showed Rodgers in his tirade. Any other player would have been flagged for taunting or unsportsmanlike conduct. Rodgers played under a different set of rules and was incredulous that he was actually allowed to be tackled. Should be interesting to see if he really is wrapped in bubble wrap and gets to wear a non-tackling red jersey when he returns.

  3. Typical low-quality person playing in Minnesota. In 6 years, Barr will be another forgotten Vikings player in a long, sad line of forgotten Vikings players, while AR12 continues his HOF career.

  4. We all knew this was the way it went down. Even though the cameras caught Rodgers’ spewing obscenities, he never even mentioned his role in the whole thing. It’s almost as if he thinks there should be a separate set of rules for him. I know his fans do.

  5. A story is never complete until you hear both sides…

    The truth is usually located somewhere in the middle.

  6. Seems to me most NFL players or former NFL players and coaches who have commented on this incident are siding with more that Barr did not do anything that deserves harsh criticism, than they are saying this was a dirty play. I think those voices carry a lot of weight.
    Whether Barr could have let up a little (just a little) may be true, but it was still legal and happens all the time, plus he did not deliberately try to injure him as the footage shows he avoided falling on him as much as possible after the contact. It was more of a freakish way Rodgers tried to brace himself that caused this than it was some malicious act that caused the break.

  7. Not surprising. Rodgers has always been a princess that believed the rules didn’t apply to him. Hopefully, this is a nice dose of reality. Enjoy the offseason!

  8. He gave me the finger, wah!
    He called me names, wah!

    About the 4th reminder today it’s 2017 and everything around is tanking.

  9. He picks the fight with a cheap shot, then does the “who me” routine? He couldn’t be playing in front of a more appropriate fanbase if he tried.

  10. Who give’s a crap. It’s Pro football. I’m sure a lot of players say stuff to each other all the time.

  11. We cant agree on the Kaep issue but I’m honestly just happy we can mostly all agree Rogers is a huge baby when everything doesn’t go his way.. it’s the reason why I dislike the guy and now the Packers.

  12. I don’t blame Rodgers.

    Mr. Barr, you have no right to harm anyone, and it looked to me like you did it intentionally.

  13. Heidi fans say Rodgers has to be to take getting power slammed after the pass is long gone, but they don’t think Barr should be subject to harsh language in return. Who’s the Princess?

  14. I agree for once with Viking fan play wasn’t dirty its football people get hurt. With this being said I don’t want to hear another peep from a Vikings fan if you don’t win the division this year.

  15. No doubt in my mind, Barr will be spying Rodgers the next time Rodgers plays against the Vikings. And if Rodgers doesn’t stay in the pocket, Barr is going to tune him up again.

  16. I am a Packer fan and I am with Barr on this. Does Rodgers no good to keep talking about it and starts to worry me as a fan he will get gun shy if it still on his mind this much. Work on your PT to get healthy again and realize you play a game where people are allowed and will hit you. Wasn’t dirty in any way.

  17. What Rogers realized was his season was over, and given he turns 34 on Dec 2nd, he probably realized the Packer run in the division is over as well. That and he’s a self-centered egotistical princess. Packers just have to learn to move on without him, all while already realizing there isn’t another future HOF QB on their roster. The good times are over and like Barr said, “get over it”, the rest of the division has already forgotten about him.

  18. the purpleness on this thread is running wild! viking fans must come to the conclusion that is obvious to everyone out side the “land of 10,000 mistakes” packers have 13 world titles….vikings have zerooooooooooooooo. deal with it.

  19. As Patriots fans we hate the Jets fans and trade barbs with them often but I must say that the hatred between Vikings and Packers fans makes our rivalry look like a polite conversations between church-going neighbours…

  20. If some 300+ pound dude had fallen on me and broken my shoulder, which I imagine was quite painful, I’d be spewing f-f-f-f-f-f-‘s too.

  21. Bucky Badger

    Kudos to you for being an honest Packer fan.

    Unlike the many Packer trolls that refuse to admit the obvious – that Rodgers was lying when he claimed that his verbal tirade was in response to Barr’s gesture.

    If Rodgers doesn’t want to get tackled, he needs to get rid of the ball sooner when he rolls out.

  22. How would Barr know what transpired that day, he left the field under concussion protocol anyway.

    If anyone would bother to give any of this some context, Rodgers had never said a word about the incident until the night he was asked about the play and his own reaction to it.

    I’m sure he will “get over it” in about 8 weeks and be back to tormenting LBs and Corners soon enough.

    As someone posted earlier, Barr couldn’t play before a more appropriate fan base.
    A fan base that reacts with absolute glee the day an opposing player gets seriously injured.
    And one who also felt perfectly at ease cheering for a child abuser.
    Stay classy, Loserville!

  23. Legal hit yet dirty, cheap, and probably unnecessary. If I were Rodgers I would be dropping F Bombs left and right. Barrs claim to fame of his career will be knocking Rodgers out for the season – and maybe kneeling for the National Anthem. Something to be proud of and tell your kids years later.

  24. I can guarantee you that Barr had no idea he broke the collarbone right away. He is in the huddle and he hears Rodgers yelling at him. Funny how AR has to have staff and players around him to shout F bombs at a guy who would no doubt break more than just a collarbone if AR did that as they were alone after a tackle.

  25. This is great. Poor Aaron… he got smacked (legally), gets hurt, then lashed out by cussing and calling names. Then goes on national tv and lies about it. Wow… Well, the truth is out.

  26. The law of averages shows that Green Bay is due QB issues. 25 years of unbroken HOF QB play. Packer fans were spoiled. Welcome to the real world snowflakes.

  27. I’ll keep throwing it in their face, as it is the cheesebay bandwagon repeated phrase, Minnesota passed on the classless rodgers twice in the draft.

  28. When Rodgers did not get the special treatment he thinks he deserves he tantrumed like a middle school kid who is just leaning to swear. Then to keep attention on himself he beelines it out of Green Bay straight to Hollywood to act smug about it. When the host asks him about his tantrum he lies to try to save face.

  29. Waffle says.. A fan base that reacts with absolute glee the day an opposing player gets seriously injured…
    You sound like Aaron, I remember some from your fan base being delightful over injuries to Teddy.. AP.. Bradford.. Cook.. . I have never liked seeing my competition get hurt. But now that you run your mouth with that? Karma, it’s a b****!

  30. Yup Barr’s a class act. Bounty hunter hit. Yeah, when his career ends, his Wikipedia page will say:
    Anthony Barr – NFL Player- 6 years with the Minnesota Vikings – two probowls as a replacement for someone who earned it – broke Aaron Rodgers collar bone in 2017 with a dirty hit and then grabbed his crotch. Never came close to playing in a superbowl.

    Barr has no class. He’ll get his. Aaron is getting better every day and there’s a day of reckoning coming. #healingeveryday #WARRIORS

    I miss your Super Bowl hashtags you used in the preseason and early in the season Carl. What happened to them?

  32. both are grown men acting as babies while on the gridiron. Times sure have changed. Every player is over sensitive. You say hi to a player and youre a racist.

  33. I don’t blame Rodgers a bit. It was a legal but very cheap hit. Real pros understand that football is players’ livelihood and respect that. Barr had a chance for a cheap shot and took it. Bush league, very bush league.

  34. “Rodgers would be wise to avoid poking the Barr.”

    Thanks for that one, it gave me a chuckle.

    Not hard to deal with. Our entire lives do not revolve around a game. But If you want to play that game the Gophers have 7 National titles Badgers 0
    Minneapolis Lakers 5 NBA championships Bucks 1 Twins 2 World Series Brewers 0. Deal with that.

  36. “He showed what kind of player he is when he head butted Davante Adams not 10 minutes later, way after the whistle”

    I don’t know why he had butted Adams, is it possible the Green Bay players were upset and talking some smack?

    Just a thought.

    Sorry we broke your QB, but nothing a 12 pack of PBR can’t cure.

  39. It’s football. The next time Aaron plays the Vikings I’d like to see that Burt Reynolds play, where his line let Dick Butkus a free blitz up the middle.

  40. Wait a hot minute….do you mean to tell me that in the middle of NFL football games, that players sometimes curse and give negative gestures?!?!?! Does the white house know of this????

  41. think Gretzky. Barr is a simple fool. Gretsky raised awareness of the NHL dramatically, helped raised all NHL salaries, raised attendance. Similar for Rodgers. The fans tune in to see Rodgers not simpleton Anthony Barr. Stupid move by Barr hurts players salaries, fan interest and the NFL in general.

    Don’t really care about the empty trophy case. You have to deal with empty Sundays for a long time. If Rodgers comes back he will not be the same. greenbay does not have a team without Rodgers. I am buying a Barr jersey to add to the family’s collection which includes Allen, Farve, Peterson and Smith. You can hang your Rodger jersey next to your Chmura jersey.

  43. I don’t understand why Barr could just say, “I Know you are but what am I”?. Didn’t he learn anything in College?

  44. The cheesers are so mad at Barr but not the GM that let their team become a shell wrapped around a soulless jerk that can throw a football. The party left and the Packer fans get to mop up and take out the garbage. Good times.

    And your assuming that Barr will be kneeling because he is black? Wow greenbay wi where you can still purchase white hoods.

  46. Barr is just one in a long list of class-less Viking players, who achieved his notoriety by injuring another NFL player. This franchise has the only group of fans in professional sports that get more enjoyment from seeing others hurt than winning titles. There is a reason they have not won a championship in 56 years and never will. Worst franchise in professional sports.

  47. Barr has endeared himself to Viking fans. Just in time too. Moss is gone. Peterson is gone. What would they do without a sleazeball to hero-worship?

    You paid money for a jersey that says “Farve?” I’ll bet you got a good deal on it.

    As they say…….there’s a Viking fan born every minute.

  49. What’s really fun about all this is if you all had the chance to have Aaron as your QB you’d trade your team to get him.

    I have never felt good when another teams players has gotten hurt. And I have never posted anything but support and sorrow for teams including the Vikings that have been injured. When a team wins they want to beat the best. What shocked me were the jeers and laughter when Aaron was carted off the field. That is just despicable. Yes some fans clapped but many shouted their hate at him.

    You all need to take a look in the mirror. What kind of people are you? To cheer his injury makes you more pathetic than Anthony Barr. He was playing the game, things happen, players react. But what you’ve posted here remains as a testament to how low we have gone as a society.

    And even with all of this I will never cheer for a player to be injured. Aaron Rodgers is a great player and he is also a man, he was injured and reacted. Barr reacted. What makes me question Barr is the head butt he gave to Adams and he paid for it with a concussion. He made a mistake. What’s your excuse?

    Just a reminder, Moss in the end zone was only responding to all those “classy” Packer fans who pull down their pants and moon the visiting team buses as they enter and leave the stadium.

  51. Any player would spew F-bombs at the guy who broke their collar bone on an unnecessary hit. And Ridgers is still talking about it because it’s the play that ended his season.

    Enjoy your season without Rodgers in the North Vikes fans. You know hurting him was your only shot at winning the North. Good luck with that.

    I know mine were.

    I completely understand your bitterness and angst.
    Karma has been doing a number on your team for 56 years, and it doesn’t look like she’s letting up anytime soon.

    And I will continue to say, the Barneys are the most hypocritical fan base in football.
    After listening to them whine about Clay Matthews play over his entire career (and they still do) how can you simply not look at your own defense with the same lens?
    Listening to you rationalize and justify it is hilarious.

  56. “How many trophies” must be taught in every classroom in WI because its Packer fan 101. I have never seen any other fan base that needs to laud ancient history so frequently. Pitt, NE, etc… just live in the present… Packer fans live in the past.

  57. Funny how people start by saying it was legal but… I agree its football but by the NFL rules, it is absolutely illegal…
    NFL RULES: ARTICLE 9: Roughing the passer: When tackling a passer who is in a defenseless posture (e.g., during or just after throwing a pass), a defensive player must not unnecessarily or violently throw him down and land on top of him with all or most of the defender’s weight. Instead, the defensive player must strive to wrap up the passer with the defensive player’s arms and not land on the passer with all or most of his body weight.

    I think you’re confused.

    We didn’t, and aren’t, cheering because Rodgers got hurt.

    We’re laughing at Rodgers acting like a little girl because someone had the audacity to tackle him.

    The only reason Rodgers got hurt was that he fell awkwardly.

    Once Rodgers leaves the pocket, he no longer has all the protection that a QB normally gets. At that point he is treated like a RB.

    If Rodgers is afraid to get hit, he needs to stay in the pocket.

    Because it disrupts the narrative about Green Bay Packers fans being the best in football, it’s not often mentioned that these same fans often moon opposing players bussing out of Lambeau Field. I don’t know why this is. The fact that Packers fans moon departing teams makes them even better in my eyes.

    The above is from the AP. Stella just saying fake news does not make it fake news. All you have to do is a little research to find out that packer fans moon opposing teams. I guess that counts as better football for better people.

  72. Seriously! For everyone including Barr who says Rodgers is whining, He isn’t and wasn’t. How would you react if that happened to you? I don’t fault either of them for reacting how they did. I played D-line through college when you could still hit the qb. I did a lot of things like Barr did both the hit and verbally reacting to other teams. It’s a rough game! The thing that puzzles me is, how everyone is saying Rodgers is still whining. Did anyone watch the Conan show? Conan asked Rodgers a question and Rodgers answered it. Conan then went in to make light of the whole situation and Rodgers was laughing. He wasn’t whining at all.

  79. Is it just me, or does it seem like the same Packer fans that have incessantly posted derogatory comments on Viking stories over the past few years are now the ones whining the most? Like non-stop?

    I was pretty ambivalent about the whole Rodgers injury when it happened, since I didn’t think it mattered if he was healthy or not, Vikings are a better team. But now, I have to admit, the sheer bitterness and hypocrisy of those same fans is quite amusing.

    Legal hit yet dirty, cheap, and probably unnecessary. If I were Rodgers I would be dropping F Bombs left and right. Barrs claim to fame of his career will be knocking Rodgers out for the season – and maybe kneeling for the National Anthem. Something to be proud of and tell your kids years later

    *****
    For the record no Viking (including Barr) has ever knelt before the national anthem. We also didn’t have any players, like Rodgers, urging their fans to lock arms during the anthem. That went over well didn’t it.

  81. Well I hate to leave this thread but going to spend some quality time with the kids and carve pumpkins. Need to hit the hay early to watch the Vikings. What are the packer fans going to do tomorrow? What am I saying, I went to college in wisconsin and remember that the bars open pretty early. SKOL

    Yes, but the enjoyable part about this is that statistically speaking and any other way you look at it, Favre greatest year as a passer and as a quarterback was his first year with the Vikings. Sorry, GB.

    ________________________________________________________________________________

    You can have all the division championships and stats you want Minny fans… The ONLY thing that matter is whats in the trophy case. And the Minnesota Viking has nothing in their trophy case, With or without Favre.

  84. Far be it from me to want to add any further fuel to this fire, but it was just verified on Twitter that Ha Ha Clinton-Dix “liked” Anthony Barr’s tweet on Twitter about rodgers. No, I’m not kidding nor am I trolling.

    I follow Clinton-Dix due to his charitable work and Barr’s tweet about rodgers was presented in my feed with the heading “Ha Ha Clinton-Dix liked”. And yes, it is the verified account of Ha Ha Clinton-Dix.

  85. Yes, but the enjoyable part about this is that statistically speaking and any other way you look at it, Favre greatest year as a passer and as a quarterback was his first year with the Vikings. Sorry, GB.

    Vanity of vanitys:
    I think Favre’s greatest year was when he won the Super Bowl in the midst of three straight mvps. I will grant you this that watching Favre throw that pick against NO in the nfc championship was a site to behold.

  86. Can we all just be thankful that it was not Tom Brady’s collarbone? Packet fans can’t even hold a candle to the whines of Patriots’ fans. Let’s just be greatful we don’t have that to deal with.

  87. I’m a packers fan and it’s football so injuries happen. Could Barr have pulled up? Yes, but he didn’t. Mostly bummed because the Pack was off to a good start and things were shaping up decent. That being said, and I’ll grant they have a very good defense, but Vikings fans are delusional if they think they’re going anywhere with their qb situation. It’s a qb league and you either have one or you don’t and MN don’t.

  88. Mike McCarthy will be exposed for the poor coach he is, Ted Thompson’s lack of ability during drafts will be laid bare for all to see, and the packers will be alone in the cellar of the NFC North.

  89. Stellar… Tony Dungy said packer fans used to moon opposing teams as they left in the buses. I’ll believe him over you.
    Also- Rodgers lied about Barr gestures! LIED! To make himself look better! Do you people understand? That’s the real issue here. A liar. That’s the kind of person he is.

    The truth is usually located somewhere in the middle.

    Totally agree. There is an old saying…There’s 3 sides to every story… yours, theirs, and the truth!

  91. It’s not the fact he got upset over his broken bone. He contends Barr gave him gestures and THEN he cussed Barr. That’s a blatant lie. Read the article.

    “He showed what kind of player he is when he head butted Davante Adams not 10 minutes later, way after the whistle”

    I don’t know why he had butted Adams, is it possible the Green Bay players were upset and talking some smack?

    Just a thought.

    ———–

    So, Barr head butts Adams, and its Tae’s fault? I guess he was asking for it. This is all you need to know about MN fans. I’m sure Adrian’s son was asking for it, too.

  94. The Packer trolls brag about their titles, as if they had something to do with winning them? If it was a beer drinking contest they might have something going, but not…..

    This is always one of the dumbest replies on this forum.
    As fans we associate with the teams we cheer for.
    So if a fan shows some kind of pride in their teams past or overall success it isn’t necessarily a bad thing.
    Unless you have no real past or history to be proud of.

    And besides, despite Florio’s consternation, Packer fans, including my family, own stock in the team.
    No, I’m not talking about the souvenir stock that’s been sold over the last few years for stadium renovations.

    I own a share of 1935 and three shares from the 1950 stock sale.
    Those shares were directly responsible for keeping small town Green Bay afloat in a big city league like the NFL.
    The Packers would have ceased to exist without them.
    They were necessary and vital and these shares are just some of my prized possessions.
    Packer fans in general have every right to associate with their team’s success, as they actually participated in their creation and continuation of their favorite team.

    //////////////////////////////////

    I read the article. I guess it’s a lie because Barr said so, and he’s such an honorable guy. Or maybe because a Vikings homer says so. Whatever the case, Rodgers obviously has every reason in the world to lie.

    What was that reason again?

  97. Carl Gerbschmidt. – So, Barr head butts Adams, and its Tae’s fault? I guess he was asking for it. This is all you need to know about MN fans. I’m sure Adrian’s son was asking for it, too.

    If you watched the game you would have seen there was some pushing and jawing going on. If you read the post you would see I didn’t say it was his fault. While I am pleased you two are so close you can call him “Tae” you still need to watch the games and read the comments before you weigh in. It seems to work for most Viking and Packer fans.

    And not one picture? Everyone carries a cell phone and some players carry two, in addition to iPads, cameras, press writers, you name it. It sounds like UFO sightings. Dungy saw one drunk, one time? Was it you? You sound pretty certain.

    I don’t blame Rodgers.

    Mr. Barr, you have no right to harm anyone, and it looked to me like you did it intentionally.

    ————————————

    Well, at least you’re willing to admit you know nothing about NFL football.

  100. Vikings fans AND their team is obsessed with the Packers.

    Green Bay’s fans have always had 2 favorite teams: The Packers and whoever’s playing the Bears.

    Vikings fans have always had 2 favorite teams: whoever is playing Green Bay and whoever is playing Green Bay next week.

    You’re not on our radar. We are your radar.

    *******************

    They have several actually, and the one that’s playing now is playing smart. Think of it; the Vikings have beaten the Packers three out of the last four games using three different QBs.

    I’ll take the team approach, anytime.

  102. I applaud Barr’s sensitivity to the hearing impaired fans by signing what Rodgers was telling him.

  103. All this whining over a routine QB takedown SMFH ! If it was anyone other than princes Erin it would be a big nothing burger . That talk was nothing that doesn’t happen on every other play in the NFL . Rogers just landed awkwardly and don’t tell me Pacur fans that you wouldn’t be defending Mathews if the hit was on a Vikings QB .

  104. In the Fail Mary game the Packers had an INT negated by a roughing the passer call for a hit that was nowhere near as late as Bart’s hit on Rodgers. Wilson was outside the pocket so no extra protection. But they Viking fans defended that call and said it was a dirty hit. Just sayin.

    ——
    and youve been saying over and over and over and over again. no one cares.

  106. Call: After Packers safety Jerron McMillian intercepts a deflected pass along the sidelines, linebacker Erik Walden is whistled for a roughing the quarterback penalty on Russell Wilson.

    On the Seahawks’ first play after Green Bay took their fourth-quarter lead, Wilson runs a play-action bootleg to his right. The action is smartly away from Clay Matthews, but Walden, the opposite outside linebacker on the play, stays home and reacts to the boot.

    He launches at Wilson before the throw is even attempted. The ball eventually bounced off the hands of tight end Evan Moore and into the waiting arms of McMillian. There is no complaining from Wilson, who thinks he just threw a back-breaking interception.

    The head official is standing no more than a foot away from the play and he drops a yellow flag. The Seahawks retain possession. The Packers would have taken over at the Seahawks’ 26-yard line.

    NFL’s official rule on roughing the passer (Rule 12, Section 2, Article 8):

    Pass rushers are responsible for being aware of the position of the ball in passing situations. If a pass rusher clearly should have known that the ball had already left the passer’s hand before contact was made, unnecessary roughness will be called. The Referee will use the release of the ball from the passer’s hand as his guideline that the passer is now fully protected. Once a pass has been released by a passer, a rushing defender may make direct contact with the passer only up through the rusher’s first step after such release (prior to second step hitting the ground); thereafter the rusher must be making an attempt to avoid contact and must not continue to “drive through” or otherwise forcibly contact the passer. Incidental or inadvertent contact by a player who is easing up or being blocked into the passer will not be considered significant.
    On one-step rule outside the pocket:

    When the passer goes outside the pocket area and either continues moving with the ball (without attempting to advance the ball as a runner) or throws while on the run, he loses the protection of the one-step rule and the provision regarding low hits, but he remains covered by all other special protections afforded to a passer in the pocket. If a passer outside the pocket stops behind the line and clearly establishes a passing posture, he is covered by all of the special protections.
    The official rule on rounding makes this arguably the worst call of the night.

    i dont recall anyone let alone viking fans defending this call. but go ahead and enlighten us. really. go ahead. or at least stop posting about it.

    Says the guy, or gal, that spends the vast majority of their so called life posting on Vikings news threads, while their team’s players and coach is still crying about the Vikings 2 WEEKS after their game.

    It’s football. The next time Aaron plays the Vikings I’d like to see that Burt Reynolds play, where his line let Dick Butkus a free blitz up the middle.
    ——————————————
    It was Ray Nitschke (Packers great MLB), not Butkus.

  109. As a GB fan who doesn’t like that Barr knocked my guy out for the year, I do really like the back and forth.

    A star QB vs a star LB in a tough division rivalry? You cant script that sort of drama. Next season’s games are going to be intense!

  110. Rodgers relishes making tacklers look foolish with is jukes, fakes and overall wily style. He pleas for roughing calls regularly. In other words, he his an aloof, arrogant man who feels he is above getting hit and feels morally entitled to berate Barr on a clean play, and then has the chutzpah to bitch to the press about it 13 days later.

    The arrogance of Aaron Rodgers is his weakness.

  111. People on here have comprehension difficulties. Barr isn’t whining. He said it’s been 13 days and He is still whining. Get over it. Why is that whining from Barr? It isn’t he is saying what everyone is thinking. Rodgers starts cussing at him and expects no response? That is a prima donna.Can Rodgers and packer fans whine any longer? I hope not I get tired of listening to it.Clean hit by a clean pro bowl player. Just stop the whining and Aaron your lying. The video backs up Barr not you. He tackled you and walked back to the huddle. Later Barr did the discount double check move after you yelled at him . Not the suck it sign. Just stop whining all of you.

  112. Yes, but the enjoyable part about this is that statistically speaking and any other way you look at it, Favre greatest year as a passer and as a quarterback was his first year with the Vikings. Sorry, GB.

    Absolute nonsense.

    1995-1998, he was the best player in football.

  113. Congrats to Vikes fans. Looks like you’ll run away with the Division this year. And it looks like you’ve got teh inside track on homefield advantage.

    .. I only hope we can revisit this next year with a healthy Aaron Rodgers. Right now, my gut has me feeling otherwise though.

  114. “Roughing the Passer” rules do NOT apply to a QB once he leaves the pocket.He is then considered a runner.

    Nice job taking a rule out of context. Clean hit, no flag, no fine, no comment from the league.

    Deal with it. Its football, not some passing stats pageant.

  115. Based on all the emotion in these posts the article is very appropriate.

    Folks, it is indeed time to move on.
