Aaron Rodgers has a good excuse for one of his interceptions (actually, two)

USA TODAY Sports

With the Packers down 17-3 and driving for a touchdown that could have cut the deficit to seven, quarterback Aaron Rodgers threw a red-zone interception.

The miscue came from something that happened in a very different zone.

“For those of you who went back and watched it,” Rodgers told Pat McAfee on Tuesday, “I don’t like to make a lot of excuses for interceptions. . . . That one was entirely due to the double nut shot I took.”

Rodgers was on the ground for a bit after the play, and the Fox crew pointed out that he refused to be examined by trainers on the sideline. And now we know why he didn’t need it.

All he needed, as anyone who has ever taken a double nut shot or two knows, was a little time and space.

    That’s called a Discount Double Check, Aaron.

    Great new name for that hit.

  2. That’s exactly how Packer fans felt when Rodgers complained about the GM and said he no longer wanted to play in Green Bay.

  3. I’m waiting patiently to hear what Joe Barry’s excuse is.

    (Knowing full well it isn’t a good one..)

  4. I thought the game was flushed and he is moving on? And yet here we are with more excuses.

  5. After reading this headline, I thought for sure Rodgers excuse would be because his man bun was too tight.

    But if he didn’t talk about it you wouldn’t have anything to post about. Not like you talk Vikings or anything.

  7. First, the league gives us the rodgers rule.

    Now, they give us the “rodgers double nuttter interception”

    We are not worthy

  8. Reminds me of a boxing match I watched on the 4 letter network yrs ago during the interview guy says so how much damage did them body shots do? Fighter says them wasn’t body shots them was scrotum blows hurt real bad lol

  9. Aaron just gave the opposing team a roadmap on how to beat him.
    Scramble Aarons eggs. Win the game.

  10. Aaron Rodgers needs to see a psychiatrist. He’s got issues, and there’s nothing on a football field or a locker room is gonna help him get through them.

    Like he would only have one? At least he is a cheap date versus hiring someone who knew defenses, a good defensive coordinator would have never taken this job

  12. Does anyone wear a cup in the NFL? Seems crazy to me, but I don’t think there are many who do. Can’t remember who it was, but heard and interview with a player and it came up and he said nobody wears protective gear like they used to because it impairs movement and takes away just that little bit. Used to be knee pads, thigh pads, hip pads and cups. No you don’t see much of any of them.

    Good pass rush, solid D-line, one of the top 5 corners in football… there is alot to work with here.

  14. I never bought into the heat excuse either. The Packer offense only played for 7 plays in the 1st quarter and 9+ minutes in the first half. How out of shape are they if the heat was a problem. The defense may have been tired since they were on the field so long in the first half.
