  • What do you think about Davante Adams saying that he's the best receiver in the NFL at the moment?

  • E, I would have to say Yes.

  • I mean, I think that e He's proven that weekend a week out, especially when you're doing one on one coverage.

  • He's beating everything, beating the best best corners out there every single week.

  • And the guy just keeps continue to make plays.

  • I mean, cash.

  • Last night he made was sick on DSO.

  • I give him credit.

  • He's the best receiver in the game today.

  • Well, listen, he's definitely up there.

  • I give him a lot of respect of love, but I'll ask you this question.

  • In light of that would have been your thoughts about the fact that the Green Bay Packers having gotten Aaron Rodgers and Davante Adams additional help.

  • What are your thoughts about that from the white out spot?

  • I mean, they didn't draft they.

  • They have been drafted offensive play in the first round since 2005.

  • Well, you know, you know, Stephen a This is the thing, man, is that packers always realized that they build in house.

  • You know, I wasn't a seven round.

  • I wasn't a first round draft pick.

  • I was seven round and I went out there and I proved weekend a week out, even though they drafted the guy before me.

  • Uh, you know, and then guys after me in the first round, I still proved that I was one of the best receivers to ever played.

  • And I think sometimes that's what they're trying to feel if there is a guy that can step up and fill the shoes like I did when I first walked in there and, uh, maybe you have to go out and get a guy in the first round.

  • But right now they've been building in house and they're trusting that these young receivers one of them will step up.

  • I think Mark stepped up last night, scoring two touchdowns, but he has to be consistent every weekend and week out, and I think that's the problem right now.

  • He's not that consistent.

  • Received Donald I'm looking at.

  • I mean what you just said.

  • Aaron Rodgers went deeper into his career without throwing a pass to a first rounder, I think, than anyone in history, right?

  • But let's forget about the offense in that case, They should have a good defense if they're finding gems and developing well and they have, you know, Erin Jones and Davante Adams, and they could do it that way.

  • Why is the defense so suspect and then and they don't make a deadline?

  • Move.

  • What about that?

  • Why?

  • What's up with the Packers defense, Do you think?

  • Well, that's the thing you let too many great players go.

  • I mean, Blake Martinez, one of the best linebackers to ever play the game, and you let him leave.

  • You gotta be willing to keep guys in house.

  • And sometimes you, you know, guys wanna go different places toe maybe thinking that they could win the championship there.

  • But And now, as you know, this game is all about money.

  • It ain't about being Lautowa organization, so guys going out trying to play as much and make this much money as possible, but the practice gonna always do what they have to do.

  • Um, that's what they've been very successful at.

  • And you can't deny their six and two for a reason.

  • The defense has not been playing lights out, but the offense has been making enough place to win the game.

  • Nobody said that.

  • They're not good.

  • We understand that.

  • They're very good.

  • We understand that.

  • Aaron Rodgers one of the best to have ever done it.

  • Obviously, you've got a Super Bowl championship with him.

  • And what have you?

  • My question to you would be this, though.

  • It's one thing to be good when you talk about championship caliber.

  • How do you view the Green Bay Packers, particularly this season?

  • When you look at the rest of the NFC, you know they're playing good.

  • I mean, by that end of the day, I mean, they still have to go out there and play weekend the week out, and we saw the games that they did lose, and they should have won those games.

  • But you know, when you play against, you know, when you play against the Bucks, everybody thought that they were gonna go out there.

  • Erin's gonna play lights out, and they kind of figured it out.

  • They knew how to shut Devante down.

  • And then from there, they want to make sure that everyone else when, um, and try to beat them.

  • And so I don't know, man.

  • I think that's where it gets tricky in this game because any given Sunday, man, you could get beat by any team.

  • It doesn't matter if you seven and one or you on seven, so you got to go out and play weekend.

  • The week out, don't They went 13 and three.

  • First year head coach Matt LeFlore, right, and and Aaron Rodgers did not look the same.

  • You know, he put up good numbers.

  • He's Aaron Rodgers, but he didn't look the same.

  • Then they draft Jordan Love instead of getting him help.

  • They draft his successor, and now Rodgers comes out and more comfortable in the offense.

  • Plays like he's played so far this season.

  • Watching him, What do you see as the difference now?

  • Like this?

  • Aaron Rodgers versus the Aaron Rodgers.

  • From once upon a time, you play with a chip on your show that he's playing with a chip on the shoulder.

  • I think that's it.

  • I mean, I think, you know, and I go back because I try to compare Aaron to myself, right, Erin?

  • You mean he felt like he should have been the first pick in the draft in 2005?

  • It didn't happen that way.

  • They took Alex Smith.

  • I mean, and so he's proven every single year that he wants to be one of the best quarterbacks to ever played this game, and I think that's what it is.

  • I think when you have somebody, you draft somebody, uh, to come take your spot.

  • You wanna go out and prove it wrong every week.

  • And so even when they was drafting Javon Walker and Greg and James and Georgie, I still want to be the best with that organization.

  • I think that's what he's proven right now that I carry a chip on my shoulder and I'm going out to play and my receiver group.

  • We knew every day we came in.

  • It was a battle between all of us.

  • But we love each other.

  • Yeah, you after they draft.

  • Go ahead, Stephen.

  • You're somebody that knows a thing or two about what goes on the Green Bay and what have you.

  • I want to know what your initial reaction Waas when you saw the Green Bay Packers with all of those needs still elected draft the successor, the Aaron Rodgers.

  • What was your reaction when you first saw it?

  • I'm talking about that night watching the NFL draft and you saw the Green Bay Packers select Jordan.

  • Love your reaction was what?

  • What the hell are you doing?

  • You know, I think that I mean, that was it.

  • I mean, I knew Devante needed help on they didn't go out and they didn't go out and do it.

  • And so I think everyone questioned the decision.

  • But as we all know, Stephen a No one could play.

  • You know, as long as you think you can.

  • You know, we all wanna play until our late third.

  • Especially the quarterback position.

  • 40 years old, but unfortunate.

  • Sometimes that doesn't happen.

  • Think that Rogers experience with far helped shape the way he's treating Jordan?

  • Love?

  • Oh, you know, I'll say that everybody had their opinions when that happened with Aaron came in with Brett.

  • There was no animosity Bread.

  • It was one of those guys.

  • Man.

  • Bread is one of those guys that tell you, man, watch me play and play like me, you know?

  • And I think that's what Aaron had to learn fast and he learned it and thats why he's, you know, that's why he's one of these quarterbacks in the game today.

  • He's able to watch a guy for, you know, for a couple of years and then able to step up and fill the shoes.

  • And you really don't find, ah, quarterback that can come in and fill the shoes of another Hall of Fame quarterback.

  • And Erin's been able to do that.

  • And I think now just being a mentor to Jordan, Jordan, Jordan, how the game is actually played, um joins gonna learn fast, Donald before I say by real quick, I gotta ask you about D.

  • K.

  • Metcalf.

  • I mean, how special is he?

  • He's special, and, you know, that's why I have to say this is that Davante Adams is good and he's gonna be He's right now and playing where he's playing.

  • He's the best in the game, but he came back after it's a stud.

  • I mean, he's a complete beast on DSO.

  • I just think I want to see what the future holds for this kid.

  • If he could stay healthy and continue to play the way he's playing, it's gonna be lights out.

  • I think he was so happy when he got drafted.

  • I reached out to Jon Stein and told him after he drafted the kid.

  • Congratulations.

  • You're gonna have a playmaker.

  • And the kid has not let me down.
