Romeo Doubs: Aaron Rodgers just wants us to see what he sees

When Aaron Rodgers speaks, people in Green Bay listen and that was the case with the quarterback’s comments about the team’s young receivers this week.

Rodgers said those players have to be much more consistent when it comes to things like route running if they are going to be successful this season. That resulted in a Wednesday morning meeting featuring Rodgers, the team’s other quarterbacks, the wide receivers, and members of the offensive coaching staff.

Seventh-round pick Samori Toure said it was “just really giving us advice” from Rodgers and veteran wideouts about what the team is looking for at the position. Fourth-round pick Romeo Doubs said that getting on the same page as Rodgers was the key bit of business.

“Aaron spoke to us about what he likes or what not just based on concepts or what he sees. . . . He just wants us to see what he sees,” Doubs said, via Rob Demovsky of ESPN.com. “So then that way we can be able to react faster, play faster and just be able to dominate and continue to be who we are.”

Some of this work could have gone on during the offseason program, but Rodgers didn’t take part in the voluntary sessions and that left the bulk of the heavy lifting for the summer. It will continue for the next few weeks before the Packers hit the field in Minnesota on September 11.

  1. Who would you want as YOUR quarterback? Aaron Rodgers or your QB. It’s that simple, when you think about it. He’s better than all but a handful of QBs all time. Yeah he’s quirky, demanding even, but I’m glad he’s a Packer.

  2. He wants them to see what he sees.

    So, the rookies are supposed to leave their families, grow a man bun, drink spiked tea and become complete d bags?

  3. No excuses Rodgers! Get the well-paid job done with who you have, all the way through including a SuperBowl win, or take your ten-year postseason-losing *ss out of town. Get it done or get lost. Show us how and why you are the best, or confirm you’re a privileged fraud. Those are your choices.

  4. “Some of this work could have gone on during the offseason program, but Rodgers didn’t take part in the voluntary sessions and that left the bulk of the heavy lifting for the summer.”

    Ya think? Just when I thought Brady was leading the field for the most insufferable person in the NFL, Rodgers opens his pie hole. You’re on the clock Tom.

  5. As good as Rodgers is I expect him to choke in the playoffs again until he proves me wrong.

  6. This is what I see in the comments every time there is a story about Green Bay: Stop making being the QB in Green Bay about Rodgers.

  7. Rodgers skips OTAs then arrogantly calls out young players. It’s why he has a losing record against winning teams and goes 1 and done

  8. i think he reaal was telling them, kepp not learning the playbook, not running the right routes, and dropping every other pass, and you wont take the field I a rodgers will inform coaches who i like and dont like

  9. Well Rodgers has God given talent no doubt and one of the best all time, but his contract demands put his team and Him in a tough situation not be able to sign veteran wr and have a young receiving corp

  10. Seeing what Aaron sees could get very interesting considering Rodgers recently admitted to using hallucinogenics.

  11. 17 years in the league and he has grasp on what it takes to lead. I think it is OK he calls them out to make them better. Guy is one of the best at this position, If Tom Brady said the same thing, people would be fawning all over him

  12. I think the NFL schedule makers deliberately gave us the Vikings in week 1 because they knew the only way the Vikings have a prayer of winning this game is if the Packers are not quite in sync yet.

  13. Rodgers had a non verbal connection with Jordy Nelson and Davante.
    They look over the defense at the line and both Rodgers and Davante or Jordy see the same thing,… it triggers a quick play for positive yards,.. maybe a TD. It’s all about being on the same page,… evaluating the defense line up the same way. It doesn’t happen overnight,… but this year it sure would help if these rookies pick it up sooner rather than later.

  14. Say what you will about A-Rog, obviously there’s no shortage of Rodgers haters. But if I were Doubs I’d be smart enough to know that this guy can help me, truly help me make a lot of money. More money than I’ll ever make again in my life. Ask James Jones, Jordy Nelson, Greg Jennings, Randall Cobb and Davante Adams how much money A-Rog helped THEM make. He might be a hard-a– to deal with, but he is HOF.

    ————————————————————-

    No fawning here as I’m not a Brady fan but Brady works with his receivers during the off season without being prompted. Don’t put Rodgers in his category of leadership. Major difference between the two. Most talented of all time, absolutely. Leader, questionable.

  16. “Who would you want as YOUR quarterback? Aaron Rodgers or your QB.”

    If we are talking about the regular season, yeah…AR.

  17. Would that also include being the NFC playoff doormats?
    ///////////////////////////////////////////////////
    Funny coming from the fan of a team that has not won a Super Bowl….EVER!

  18. What he sees is NOT reality. What he sees is the best quarterback this league has ever seen, but what the reality of the situation is he’s a shade over .500 in the playoffs, and his record, and stats, are a mirror image of the guy he replaced. He’s Brett Favre 2.0…. Nothing more Nothing less

    **********
    AR is one of only 34 QBs to win a Super Bowl and he was the MVP of that game.
    Only 7 other passers in NFL history have won more playoff games than Aaron Rodgers.
    And he still posts a postseason passer rating North of 100, which is better than Drew Brees, Russell Wilson, Joe Montana, Tom Brady, Troy Aikman, Elway, Marino, Brett Favre, Peyton, Eli and Big Ben.
    Just to name a few.
    But Hey, everybody’s entitled to their opinion. 😉

    ==========================

    For 99% of teams/fans, the answer is obviously Rodgers. At least until the playoffs arrive. Then the answer changes dramatically.

  21. What I like about Aaron is that he makes everyone around him better. That’s what the great ones do.

  22. The guy is the best QB in the NFL, but he should have made that statement in the meeting and not publicly. Just cause he’s a great QB neither makes him a good person nor a good leader. He may make those around him better, but it is in degrees — you have to wonder how much better those around him would be with better leadership skills. Pack fans just blindly spout off this Rodgers adoration — the only realistic cheeser when it comes to Rodgers seems to be stellar.

    No he is referencing on the football field, which is what most normal fans care about… Not all the off-field stuff about how he chooses and decides to live his personal life off the field.
