Aaron Rodgers: The ball “stuck to my hand” on last throw of the game

Getty Images

The Packers’ last offensive play in Thursday night’s loss to the Seahawks was an incomplete pass that Aaron Rodgers wishes he could have back.

The play was a third-and-2 and Marquez Valdes-Scantling was open for a first down. Rodgers threw to him but missed badly. He said afterward that it was an easy pass he could make 100 times in a row.

“I could do that a hundred times and probably not do that again,” Rodgers said. “It was a gimme. It was a gimme out there. It stuck to my hand.”

Whether the ball is sticking to his hand or whatever else the reason may be, the fact is Rodgers is missing a lot of throws he used to make. This season Rodgers has a completing 61.8 percent of his passes, which is a significant decline from his career average of 64.9 percent. And that decline is particularly concerning because it’s happening in an NFL season when passing offenses are exploding: The league-wide completion percentage is 65.1 percent.

Rodgers signed the biggest contract in NFL history before the season, so the Packers are heavily invested in seeing him play like the Rodgers of old. With Mike McCarthy looking unlikely to make it to 2019, that’s going to be the top priority of the Packers’ next coach.

  1. This is one of those snake-bIt seasons, for the entire team. They’ve shown the talent to compete with anybody, but don’t seem to have any good luck, Luck is a key and necessary ingredient to any successful season (ie; Minnesota Vikings.) They’re still in the hunt, but they’re using sticks and rocks against firerms now.

    It could happen!

  2. Wouldn’t happen to a goat. Aaronistas claim Pats fans count rings but ignore stats. Yet Rodgers is 84th all-time in Q4 comebacks, Brady is 2nd (Between Manning and Unitas). Brady is also in the top 3 or owns many other stats (and leads all postseason stats by a country mile). You see, it’s not that Pats fans “just” count rings, its that they use them alongside other smarts and leadership skills (and success in the Parity Era) to separate him from other all-time elites, overall.

    Aaronistas currently blame Rodgers’ lack of rings on McCarthy, yet coach’s career W-L record is better than Payton or Carroll. Packers “failed” as much at GM level and in Rodgers himself scrambling and risking injuries too often (in ways Brady avoids because he’s smarter).

  3. So who’s fault is that Aaron?
    The ball boy? The refs? The Seahawks? The NFL?

    Get set for a change in NFL footballs.
    Anytime something goes against the packers and Rodgers in particular, the NFL bows down to King Aaron.

  4. Rodgers wants McCarthy gone. That has been rumored for awhile now. I thought it was just rumor until this season. I have seen Rodgers run around in the pocket for 8 seconds, then throw the ball away, where in years past 8 seconds given to Rodgers meant your defensive backfield was getting carved up. It’s not the receivers either, they can get open and Rodgers can throw a football into a coffee can at 50 yards. Rodgers is…. well, was doing a good job of hiding it until the soon to be famous “sticky hand” play. Rodgers knows full well that a full season with Rodgers at quarterback and no playoffs will have fans demanding McCarthy be fired. Not defending McCarthy either. There is a reason Rodgers wants him gone. McCarthy’s play calling has slid down to high school level. If I can watch them play and know what is coming 75% of the time, NFL level DCs know what is coming 100% of the time. DCs probably have McCarthy figured out situationally at this point. “3rd and 3? Screen pass is going to be called here”. “2nd and 10? They will run it off tackle on the motion side unless the tight end is lined up left here”. It is amazing the Packers can even move the ball at all at any point of the game. By the second half (usually the 2nd quarter) opponents with decent players make enough adjustments to stop Green Bay.

  5. If he just started using his safety valve (Aaron Jones) when his first two reads aren’t open his completion percentage would go up. And so would Green Bay’s ability to sustain drives.

  6. I’m reminded of Home Alone 2, when Marv wrapped his hand in tape and stuck it in a Salvation Army bucket to pull out a bunch of change.

    Kind of like Aaron did to the Packers salary cap (and I’m a Packers fan).

  7. Aaron Rodgers is something like 63-15 at home and 38-42 on the road. I don’t think I’ve ever seen that kind of discrepancy for an elite QB. All QB’s have a better home record, but it’s like something happens to Rodgers – or maybe the team in general – when they’re away from the comfort of Lambeau Field.

  8. Ever notice that its never Mr Rodgers fault?

    When the Packers win, he is the greatest QB of all time and Green Jesus can do no wrong.

    When they lose, the ball stuck in my hand, we have to many injuries and it goes on.

    Green Jesus loves the home run ball and the spot light of the last minute come from behind win.

    Green Jesus will never win another Super Bowl playing like this.

    Waste of talent because of the ego.

    Don’t hate – Just saying the obvious.

  9. He’s explaining what it felt like making a bad throw. Not that the ball was literally sticky and to be blamed, guys.
    You’d have to be fairly dense to take that any other way unless he was outright calling for an investigation or something

  10. Viking fans would trade Cousins for Rodgers right now, in a heartbeat. They have no confidence Cousins will fulfill a guarantee for winning the SuperBowl and avoid a bust. With Rodgers, they’d have hope.

    Hope, and wishes, and prayers. That’s what keeps Viking fans going for nearly six decades.

  11. “This season Rodgers has a completing 61.8 percent of his passes, which is a significant decline from his career average of 64.9 percent. And that decline is particularly concerning because it’s happening in an NFL season when passing offenses are exploding: The league-wide completion percentage is 65.1 percent.”

    The only QB’s in the NFL (with at least 1,000 passing yards) that have a lower completion percentage than Rodgers are:

    Flacco

    Bortles

    Darnold*

    Rosen*

    Beathard*

    * 10 or less NFL starts

    Yes, he has over 3,000 yards. Yes, he’s only thrown 1 INT. Yes, his QB rating is over 100. Great personal stats.

    But when you need him to complete a pass, he either gets sacked (only 3 QB’s have taken more) or misses his target.

    That’s why the team record is 4 – 5 – 1.

    And he’s getting paid $33+ million per year on average (will actually be paid $80 million in the first 12 months of his new contract).

    Let that sink in…

  12. Some people are just dense. AR is stating a simple fact, i.e., the ball stuck to his hand. Stating a fact does equate to “making an excuse”, “avoiding responsibility”, or the like. It is amazing that facts cannot be accepted without some goofy commentary being attached to those facts.

  13. “Rodgers wants McCarthy gone. That has been rumored for awhile now”.
    _____________

    This is nothing more than a goofy conspiracy theory. The description of “rumored” is consistent with the fact that this is nothing more than pure speculation. This speculation is based on nothing more than some people trying to read AR’s “mood” from a few seconds of interaction with MM captured on television. Interestingly, these people never bring up the numerous shots of AR and MM smiling and laughing together after on field successes.

  14. He better get over this sticky hand thing by Thanksgiving dinner when somebody asks him to please pass the turkey. Could get nasty.

  15. Maybe he was hanging out with Jerry Rice on the sidelines beforehand. After all, both of these guys admitted to cheating during the sideshow “Deflategate.”

  16. He’s in luv now and he methinks he probably needs to make some more commercials! Can you say distractions???

  17. packers are a kyle fuller dropped gimme INT, daniel carlson shank gimme FG and a terrible flag for DEF holding against Beathard and the 49ers on a 3rd and forever from being 2-8. Let that sink in!!

  18. Move over Captain State Farm, Mitchell Trubisky is the emerging premier QB in the NFC North. At least that is what my brother-in-law with too much time on his hands firmly believes. Still, looking forward to watching a “dagger” in the Packs season when they come to Soldier Field in a few weeks.

  20. If Brady missed a pass that badly and blamed it on the ball “sticking to his hand” the haters would be out in full force howling with derision and laughter, yet when Rogers does it it’s no big deal. Rogers is a terrific QB… one of the best ever, but I’ll take Brady over Rogers every time when the team needs a big win… like in the Super Bowl against Atlanta. Think Rogers could have led a comeback that? Maybe, but doubtful….

    Seriously dude, 2 seasons don’t make a great quarterback. Plus you and bro in law are delusional just like lions fans that think that the bears will win the nfc North. Only 2 teams run that. Aaron Rodgers isn’t better than Favre and will never be. Tralooskey will get dominated by that SKOL of a defence! 😜

  23. This dude is the biggest Diva of all time. The league will be better off when he is no longer in it.

  24. Early on in his career he was carving up defenses, looking like he was in a different league. His success, teams played zone. Kc came along and played man and he had two quick interceptions and maybe the worst game of his career.
    He holds onto the ball and his numbers have tanked because most teams play man now and he cant stand interceptions so he throws it away.

    _____________________

    You seem to make a lot of assumptions about what others think, and most of them are figments of your imagination. No, I would not trade Cousins for Rodgers at this point in their careers, and especially given Rodgers’ onerous contract through 2022. And no, there is no guarantee on winning the Super Bowl, on Cousins or on anyone else. Etc.

  26. I am a Vikings fan and happy when Rogers is out of the lineup. But he’s carried the team on his back for years. Many of his receivers who look like stars with him Have done nothing when they left. Much like Favre before him, he made average players (and coaches) look like stars. But It’s really been all Rogers for a long, long time. Now he’s not having his best season? Cut him some slack. Especially you Packer fans who owe him the last 10 years. He’ll bounce back I’m sure. I just hope not against my Vikings. It’s hard to watch people turn on him, and I don’t even like him. I guess it really is a “so what have you done for me lately” world.

  27. Really special football player, but he is in some bad current habits. Take the 6 yard check downs, sir, you can not hit the home run on every play, especially when the defense is backing up in anticipation of the greed. Second and four is really a good spot to be in, it really is.

  28. stellarperformance says:

    they’re using sticks and rocks against firerms now.

    Probably the best comparison I’ve ever heard to describe the difference in the Packers’ lack of talent compared to other teams (ie; Minnesota Vikings.)

    But, I have to give Rodgers credit. That’s quite the excuse for an NFL QB. Only other time I’ve ever heard that was with my 6 year old nephew.

  29. Aaron Rogers is a has been. Poor QB for the last 5 seasons. Never takes responsibility for poor play. What a loser.

  30. Rodgers needs to play better. McCarthy needs to coach better. Having said that, it seems a lot of people have difficulty distinguishing between an explanation and an excuse.

  31. I love having Rodgers tell it straight and like it is, instead of the mind-numbing, apple-polishing pap that usually comes from “leaders.” Finally, a guy with balls that isn’t afraid of hurting the sensitive feelings of people simply not doing their jobs correctly. He knows the responsibilities of every position, oftentimes better than the person playing it. He’s a coach on the field. The teammates that want to win would walk through a wall for this guy, and have not given up the faith they have he can turn this season around. They know he can do it. They are brainwashed to win…..just like Packer fans.

    That’s a good thing.

  32. Former Packer players dislike this guy. His family dislikes him. He throws current teammates under the bus all the time. But because he’s a good QB you think he’s a leader? He isn’t. Never has been. Yelling at your teammates non-stop is not leading. And how many games is he going to not win before you Packer fans have the guts to call him out on it? $33 mil a year should get you criticism when you fail.

  36. How would a Viking fan have any idea whatsoever what a leader at the quarterback position looks like? The Vikings have had thirteen different players at that position since Rodgers became a starter in 2008. Get a clue. The young really good quarterbacks coming up are watching tape and following every move Rodgers makes, including how to take people to-task. Finally. The buck stops with Rodgers. That’s why McCarthy has got to go. The files on Viking quarterbacks aren’t good for fish wrap. You can bet Cousins is paying attention, even if Viking fans have their purple-tinted glasses sewn to their heads.

  37. My qb isn’t in the goat convo but he has two rings, never makes excuses and always shoulders the blame even when it’s not his. He’s also not a canoe. It’s why I take him over AR all day

  38. For all that is accurate and realistic can we stop using the term “Goat Bowl” when he plays against Brady? He has one Superbowl win. They were a six seed and Charles Woodson had more to do with getting them to that particular S.B.

  39. Wilson was more stand up in his presser after the interception in the super bowl than Rodgers was in a regular season loss.

  40. People can’t just look at quarterback stats and call Rodgers the greatest. He started his career in 2008 and played through the softest era of professional football. Over the last four seasons, he has missed open receivers left and right downfield. Had Brady and Peyton began their careers in 2008, they would have thrown 300 touchdowns by 2015. I’d even throw in Drew Brees on that one.

    Andy Dalton, Matt Ryan, Matthew Stafford, Joe Flacco, and Alex Smith have more 4th quarter comebacks than Rodgers. He’s 0-38 when trailing by at least a single point in the 4th quarter against teams with a winning record. You can even Google that statistic and find it from Fox Sports. He’s better than those five quarterbacks with more 4th quarter comebacks, but he’s still overrated.

  41. This season Rodgers has a completing 61.8 percent of his passes, which is a significant decline from his career average of 64.9 percent. And that decline is particularly concerning because it’s happening in an NFL season when passing offenses are exploding: The league-wide completion percentage is 65.1 percent.
    ———-
    What I have been saying all along this paragraph says twice. Rodgers is in decline. He won’t be able to carry that garbage roster any more. Considering the Packers are rebuilding and they HAVE the burden of paying Rodgers that huge sum his contract will be an anchor on their rebuild.

  42. Rodgers completed 70% against Seattle, and is doing better than Cousins, and did it on one leg for the first half of the season. Yeah, definitely in decline.

  43. Rodgers completed 70% against Seattle, and is doing better than Cousins, and did it on one leg for the first half of the season. Yeah, definitely in decline.

    ____

    In the second half he completed 9 of 14 pass attempts, but was sacked on another 4 dropbacks, so overall he completed passes on only 50% of the pass plays in the half, for 118 yards. He also had that horrible throw on third down.

    His first half was great, second half was a completely different story. Thats not typical of the guy, so you have to wonder why he couldnt keep the same level of play up.

    Are they? They are 5-5, and 2-2 at home. Their offense is is in the bottom half of the league, their defense isn’t in the top 10. If that was, say, the Vikings, you’d be saying how bad they were. But because they beat your team, they are pretty good team. Got it.

  49. If it is not insulting his receivers it is inventing a new excuse for his subpar play when he can’t exploit the Cheese Cheater loophole to get free plays.

    You realize after everything you just said, Rodgers actually blamed the football for being sticky instead of simply saying he made a bad throw. It happens to every quarterback every week. Not every pass is going to go where they want it to go. But for the love of god, he just cant accept the fact that he didn’t make the play and own up to it. Instead your so called “leader” blamed the football. I mean seriously, have you ever heard a quarterback actually blame the football for the reason he couldn’t complete a simple pass. That’s embarrassing for a quarterback of his caliber to blame the football for his mistake. But good for you to make excuses just like he does

  53. Highest paid player in football. Crazy. No doubt he has display extraordinary talent. A QB’s job is not to display talent. It is to generate wins.

    He is the leader. On the field tfe buck stops with him. If you are the highest paid player in the sport you better make the other players around you a whole lot better cuz you are chewing up a lot of cap space. You cannot take all the dough and then hide behind the pack of talent around you.

    No thanks. C-H-U-M-P. Favre? for sure. A-aron, nope.
    your QB would get us 30 holding calls on the oline a game, plus he’s a prick.
    we’re cool with Cousins

  62. Terry Bradshaw pointed out several weeks ago that the result of Rodgers injured leg would be that he would throw some passes low. That’s exactly what’s been happening from time to time.

    That being said Rodgers has played ridiculously well with that injury this year with A 19 to 1 TD to INT ratio. Without Rodgers that team would have only one win on the season at most.

  63. Pretty sure he meant it figuratively, as anyone who has ever played football or baseball would understand. Sometimes you make a bad throw, release it too late, and it can be best described as “sticking” to your hand. He absolutely should have made that throw, any QB in the league could make that throw. It was just a fluke thing that he held it too long and released it into the ground. To the great relief of Seahawks fans such as myself, who knew that he had a good shot of marching back down the field for the win.

  65. Per usual, cheese eaters blame injuries and the refs for every Packer loss. Waaaaa., knee brace, waaaa. And Rodgers blames every and any thing instead of talking responsibility himself. No wonder that locker room is a mess with players back stabbing each other anonymously in the press.

    According to Ian O’Connor, Brady once told an NFL coach how he feels Rodgers would do if given the “Patriots’ offensive scheme and institutional knowledge on opposing defenses.”

    “He’d throw for 7,000 yards every year,” Brady reportedly told the NFL coach. “He’s so much more talented than me.”

    I’m not sure who to believe, Brady or a bunch of myopic haters? Brady or haters, Brady or haters.

    That’s a tough one.
    ==========================================
    You are not sure who to believe because you wouldn’t know what a QB with class would say. Something you may experience again someday.

    4 wins in 10 starts. Man, I sure hope Cousins doesn’t start playing as “well” as Rodgers…
    ////////////////////////////////////////

    Oh goodness, yes. Five wins in ten starts is so much more impressive. Maybe he’d be 10-0 if you strapped a big knee brace on him? Let’s see!
    ///////////////
    Well, it’s how they judge teams in the NFL. By wins. You’re the one that said Rodgers is doing better than Cousins. The Win/Loss column disagrees with you.

  70. He gifted Seattle a win. I find it rather hilarious that Seattle fans/media are gushing about only allowing 3 points in the 2nd half but Aaron chose to hold onto the ball and muffed a few throws. We are a week to week roller coaster up here in the northwest. We think we are better after a win and suck after a loss. To me…..that screams 8-8.

    I love having Rodgers tell it straight and like it is, instead of the mind-numbing, apple-polishing pap that usually comes from “leaders.” Finally, a guy with balls that isn’t afraid of hurting the sensitive feelings of people simply not doing their jobs correctly. He knows the responsibilities of every position, oftentimes better than the person playing it. He’s a coach on the field. The teammates that want to win would walk through a wall for this guy, and have not given up the faith they have he can turn this season around. They know he can do it. They are brainwashed to win…..just like Packer fans.

    You must be a great admirer of the leadership skills of Jay Cutler and Jeff George, two players known for being combative with their teammates and coaches. Interesting position.

    To the great relief of Seahawks fans such as myself, who knew that he had a good shot of marching back down the field for the win.
    /////////////
    Why would you think that? Rodgers NEVER marches down the field in the 4th quarter when his team needs a win.

  73. Rodgers won when trailing in the 4th quarter against the 12-4 Cowboys in 2014, the 10-6 Seahawks in 2015, and the 9-7 Cowboys in 2017. Why can’t you Viking homers get that through your thick skulls???

  74. Rodgers should be suspended for cheating. Let’s not worry about that he admitted having his footballs inflated to as close to the max as possible WITHOUT going over the limit THEN having them tested by the refs.

    ———————————–
    Remember when Rodgers threw a long TD pass in week 1 over the Bears? Or the game tying and winning drives against the 49ers a few weeks ago? Or the Hail mary about 70 yards in the air against the Lions? Or in 2013 when he came back from a broke collarbone and threw a long TD on 4th & long to give the Packers the NFCN title? Or the fake spike leading up to the game winning TD against the Dolphins a few years ago? Or the winning drive on an injured leg against the Cowboys in the playoffs in 14? Or the laser throw down the sideline to set up the winning FG in the playoffs against the Cowboys in 16?

  76. We all know it’s Aaron Rodgers fault the defense can’t stop the other team from making the winning score after Rodgers gives them the lead in the 1st place.

    How would a Viking fan have any idea whatsoever what a leader at the quarterback position looks like?
    —————————————————–
    Your obsession with the Vikings is scary!

    Second any FOOTBALL fan who knows anything about the game knows what a leader at any position looks like. I can tell you this as talented as Rodgers is, he is not a good leader. Maybe you should do some research on what good leaders do. The great ones take responsibility for everything their team does, even when it’s not their fault. That is the exact opposite of A-Rog. My favorite thing to watch right now is the temper tantrams he throws each and every time he gets sacked, from throwing the ball down in disgust, to mean mugging everyone on the field from OL to WR…Classic leader material, right?

  78. Anyone who has ever thrown any object before knows what he means by “stuck to his hand” – he held on to the ball a little too long, released it too late, and it came out flat. Props to Rodgers for taking responsiblity for the L when he could just as easily blame McCarthy for punting in that situation. Go Pack go.

  79. This is impossible. I’ve heard from Joe Buck, Troy Aikman and basically every other NFL media figure that Aaron Rodgers is the second coming of Jesus Christ, and any mistakes Rodgers makes are because of the defense, the receivers, or Mike McCarthy. This is #FakeNews, Aaron Rodgers throws nothing but the greatest passes in the NFL … just ask anyone in the media….

  80. Don’t compare the DEFLATERIOTS The Packers, It wasn’t just Rodgers, it was the whole team’s part! Routs run incorrectly. I have been saying this since his surgery, his shoulder will never be the same as it was. I had that same exact surgery. After 14 years it still hurts throwing anything.

    Maybe if he put the microphone down for a minute he’d be able to throw the ball.
    XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX

    That’s funny coming from a fan of the Steelers. At least Rodgers shows up.

  82. packer fans on here defending fearful leader Rodgers is pathetic. Hey, your guy threw a bad pass and came up with a horribly lame excuse. Why do you packer fans feel the need to defend that?
