Aaron Rodgers will appear on this week’s Manningcast

Aaron Rodgers is leaving his safe space.

In the latest sign yet that the woke mob that supposedly wants to “cancel” the Packers quarterback is failing miserably, Rodgers will be one of the four guests on Monday night’s Peyton and Eli show on ESPN2. The likely 2021 MVP bats cleanup, behind Bill Cowher, Roger Goodell, and Snoop Dogg.

Whether Rodgers will be pressed to clean up some of the misinformation he has spewed in recent weeks regarding the pandemic remains to be seen. Most recently, Rodgers blurred the lines between opinion and fact regarding the safety and effectiveness of the COVID vaccine.

Rodgers rarely if ever puts himself in a position where he’ll be fairly challenged for the things he says. Although Pat McAfee and A.J. Hawk have been criticized in some circles for giving Rodgers a long leash every Tuesday during football season, that leash has on more than one occasion actually been a rope, whether McAfee and Hawk intended it or not. Indeed, if Rodgers didn’t have a place where he felt comfortable saying whatever he felt like saying without anyone saying anything negative about the things he says, he wouldn’t be saying anything at all.

Some would say it would be better if he said nothing at all, because his opinions will embolden others to cling to positions that defy their own best interests and/or nudge anyone who remains undecided on the COVID vaccine (if anyone does indeed remain undecided) to decide not to get it.

The Manningcast likely will be neither a safe space nor a crucible for debate. It’ll likely be light and fun and breezy, with no talk of COVID or anything remotely controversial, like how Rodgers lied to everyone about being vaccinated by playing a deliberate word game. Maybe Peyton or Eli will make a sarcastic remark that Rodgers will laugh about, even if deep down he resents it. And if either of the Mannings dares to go to far, Rodgers will be able to whine the next afternoon that the woke mob got to the Mannings and forced them to ask tough questions, for fear of being canceled by those who believe that Rodgers is never held truly accountable for the things he says.

  1. Tempting the football gods. This man is bold, let no one forget Josh Allen went on before the Jaguars game and instead of putting up 40 the Buffalo Bills were absolutely dominated by Urban Myers’s Jaguars….

  2. Love the Manningcast….But Arod has turned into a lying politician these days, and his likability is similar. The NFL will be better off when he goes away.

    I’ll skip this segment.

  3. Just becuase he said something you don’t like doesn’t mean he’s spewing misinformation

  4. haha, what exact “mis-information” did he “spew”. Something that doesn’t agree with Herr Fauci?

    I’m assuming you also don’t mind when politicians lie to you, and still defend them. America in 2022.

  7. Ya know normally it takes like four years of testing and observing test subjects before any previous vaccine was deemed safe to use on humans.

    And yet 75% of the population believes that all the different vaccines developed by all the different companies are without question safe and effective…

    Propaganda capabilities are nearly perfected.

  8. The format of the Manning show *IS* fun n’ breezy. It isn’t meant to discuss divisive issues. Can we not have fun anymore?

    Must there always be someone aggrieved before, during and after any broadcast of any kind?

  9. Ya know normally it takes like four years of testing and observing test subjects before any previous vaccine was deemed safe to use on humans.>>>

    Dig a little deeper. These current vaccines were in their infancy in 2002 during the first SARS outbreak. Unless you are a virologist, you have no credibility on the subject.

    If you don’t trust science, do the rest of us a favor and never use a hospital. Good luck to you.

    Covid has been deemed unsafe for humans. Get the vax. Stop pretending you know more than scientists, it’s embarassing.

  11. Hahaha, a lot of mad people on here again. Come on, where’s your holiday spirit, it’s the MVP we’re talking about? The champ, the GOAT.

  12. Brady was on the Manning show, too. However, I don’t think Rodgers should be going on the show at this point of the season. He should be focused on the playoffs and earning the number one seed.

    Who knew!?

    So that flu shot I just got protects me from the flu that was around like four-five years ago?

    Holy cats.

  14. I look forward to seeing conversing on television the two best quarterbacks that I’ve ever seen. Ironically, the least talented of the trio that will appear made the greatest escape from a pass rush and completion in Super Bowl history, and the greatest clutch throw (to Mario Manningham) in Super Bowl history.

  15. The best thing Rodgers can do is not give in to anything. He needs to stay true to what he believes. It’s funny that the same people who defended Kaepernick for being brave are now attacking Rodgers. What could be different?

  16. For the uninformed person Roger’s never lied. You misunderstood him. He never said he was vaccinated.

  17. I would like to think that the Mannings realize that the vast majority of people tuning into their broadcast are tuning in for anything but what their guests have said or haven’t said about covid. The fastest way to end interest in their show would be to follow some of the advice in this article.

  18. Love to watch Rodgers play. The guy is amazing on the field. Listening to him talk? Not so much…I’ll take a hard pass.

  19. Good for Rodgers keeping an open mind and not being a sheep like the ones I see on here. Wow. You people need 2 wake up.

  20. So that flu shot I just got protects me from the flu that was around like four-five years ago?

    +++++

    The CDC’s own figures reported over the last 17 years shows that the flu vaccine effectiveness has exceeded 50% four times, was under 50% thirteen times. (max effectiveness was 60%).

    So your shot has half a chance (perhaps) of protecting you from the current flu. You do you.

  21. highest ratings to date for sure, the guy is just a ROCK STAR these days. He’s also very smart when it comes to the Covid nonsense……

  22. Oh goody goody. Just another chance for this Narcissist to get people to hang on to his every intentionally vague word.

    Liking or not liking it has nothing to do with it. The fact is that the covid19 vaccines are effective and safe. Every accredited medical scientist will tell you this. No amount of Facebook medical advice or pronouncements from Joe Rogan will change that fact. Anyone saying otherwise is, knowingly or otherwise, spreading misinformation.

  24. Anyone referring to Rodgers as “smart” or “informed” is already misled by his borderline narcissistic act. The guy openly referenced his conversations with Joe Rogan as a basis for his decision making process regarding vaccination. Joe Rogan. Thousands of virologists far smarter than Aaron Rodgers, you, or I have committed their whole lives and careers to THIS moment and have provided a potential solution. Virologists and other scientists with no political motivation whatsoever, I might add. And this guy is deferring to a “comedian” and alt-right podcast host. What a world. Sheep indeed.

  25. You and Skip Bayless should have a show or podcast called I hate Aaron Rodgers and the Packers. It’s like pulling teeth to get you or him to say anything positive about him or them.

    If you cannot differentiate between advocating for equal rights and spreading misinformation regarding a global health crisis there really is no helping you.

  27. Forget Covid, ARod will have a tough enough time explaining how he lost to a backup QB Sunday night.

    Your comment is false as well, just because the news tells you that everyday doesn’t make it fact. But I know it’s too much work to actually do unbiased research

    Love to watch Rodgers play. The guy is amazing on the field. Listening to him talk? Not so much…I’ll take a hard pass.
    ********
    The truth is you guys never listen to him talk.
    You just rely on whatever out of context, one sentence, narrative that’s crafted for you by sites such as this.
    If you actually took the time to listen to the man in full I’m sure your opinion would be quite different.

    While it’s true Rodgers skips the tired old cliches most athletes regurgitate over and over again, his answers are often unvarnished truths about playing professional football.

    Rodgers is well read and intelligent, with a razor sharp wit.
    He has an amazing recall and can pick out plays and individual moments from any stage of his career.
    Aaron loves to shower his teammates with praise, especially the lesser known unsung heroes on and off the field, that he feels never truly get their due.
    Above all, he’s just plain fun.

    Take the time to find out for yourself rather than allow someone else to make up your mind for you. 😉

  31. Is there a like button for this article?
    (I am joking, please do not ever taint this feed with some social media aspect.)

  32. Hope Rodgers talks technical football and not off-topic nonsense like the Mannings do. Really disappointed.

  33. This one should be interesting ,Goodell+Rodgers.Kinda sure they already made out a script of”WHAT TO NOT BRING UP”.

  34. Might actually watch this one. I like people that speak truth to power. Proud liberal here.

  35. Rodgers throws the football for the team I root for. He is very good at that.
    I am a fan of him for 3 hours most Sundays.

    His beliefs have no bearing on me.

  36. “If you cannot differentiate between advocating for equal rights and spreading misinformation regarding a global health crisis there really is no helping you.” Except, he didn’t start doing it until he got benched. It was never genuine. The worse that Rodgers did was mislead or lie. At least he didn’t offend military families and cause people to stop watching football.

  37. Isn’t there a limit switch that will not tolerate that amount of ego in one small space that should cut the broadcast?

  38. And as a side comment, IMO, we have some new strong challengers in the fold in these comment sections for who actually is talking the most, unadulterated, complete up is down, down is up, Don’t look for logic, cause it doesn’t live here commenter. IMO of course. But as a suggestion for the group as a whole, don’t type the handles of the people who are obviously trolling. Just let them yell and don’t start chain arguments with them it just turns the whole comments into them talking coo coo and getting attention, their goal a lot of the time. And I say this as one of the group, fully acknowledging that a % of the time I’m full of it just like everyone else. I try to not spew nonsense. Those that just want to flame on, just a suggestion again but just let them do it screaming at their keyboard and don’t engage. Just becomes the football version of One Flew Over the Coo Coos Nest in the end anyway. Of course that’s just this lunatics opinion.

    *******************************************************************
    The polio vaccine was tested for a year before it was used en masse on the population. Know what you’re talking about before you come on here and spew disinformation. This vaccine is extremely safe and effective. If there was going to be any problem after injection, it would happen within a few days. After that the vaccine solution leaves the body after depositing the information to the body’s cells. Basic science.

  40. Green Bay’s hospitals—like many in Wisconsin and U.S.—are turning away patients with legitimate needs due to excessive unvaccinated COVID patients. That is reality. Fact.

    Rodgers misinformation and poor critical thinking skills feed the delusional.

    Amazing that one so gifted and skilled at reading an NFL defense has failed as a leader off the field.

  41. Good luck calling on the Woke Mob to take action. That group is as short on attention spans as it is on critical thinking skills. They haven’t even connected the dots from the #metoo movement to Snoop Dogg yet.

  42. I trust anything that Aaron Rodgers says over anything that buffoon Joe Biden or any of his Democratsters fake news that’s put out on a daily basis!

    Actually it took many years to perfect the vaccine: A scientist named Salk developed the vaccine. Salk’s procedure, first attempted unsuccessfully by American Maurice Brodie in the 1930s, was to kill several strains of the virus and then inject the benign viruses into a healthy person’s bloodstream. The person’s immune system would then create antibodies designed to resist future exposure to poliomyelitis. Salk conducted the first human trials on former polio patients and on himself and his family, and by 1953 was ready to announce his findings. In 1954, clinical trials using the Salk vaccine and a placebo began on 1.3 million American schoolchildren. In April 1955, it was announced that the vaccine was effective and safe, and a nationwide inoculation campaign began. Shortly thereafter, tragedy struck in the Western and mid-Western United States, when more than 200,000 people were injected with a defective vaccine manufactured at Cutter Laboratories of Berkeley, California. Thousands of polio cases were reported, 200 children were left paralyzed and 10 died.

  44. I’m 29 and tested positive in May. Luckily, no symptoms and never got sick. Tested, have antibodies. My doctor (repeat MY DOCTOR) said I should not get vaccinated. Said my age and health make risk from Covid less than any possible or unknown side effects.

    I went back since Omicron came along and asked my doctor again. Said its less reason now for ME to get vaccinated.

    It’s great for a lot or most people, not necessary for all. Natural immunity means something. It should be discussed.
