  • I think that they should be the favorites in the NFC.

  • It's my biggest take away.

  • I think that what Aaron Rodgers did yesterday was incredible.

  • And also it feels like he's wrapped up the M V P Trophy with Patrick Mahomes having another, I guess not another, but having an uncharacteristically bad week and then Aaron Rodgers going out there and cooking in the snow as if he is in the friendliest confines like That's tough, even though it seems like they're comfortable playing in those conditions.

  • That's tough for anybody moving.

  • I don't care how long your cleats are or how your hand warmers work.

  • It's tough to throw a ball in that situation.

  • It's tough to get open that situation, and what they did was impressive.

  • And I'm not sure even though their defense has some weaknesses, I'm not sure that anybody in the NFC is gonna be able to come into Lambeau and beat them.

  • Yeah, I think my my largest take away is that like sometimes you go up against a team that that that you need to beat and you need to beat in a certain way and that's what the Tennessee Titans presented to me for the Green Bay Packers.

  • When you think about the Green Bay Packers the last two years, now they've won a ton of games, right?

  • You were 13 and three last year, only three losses this year.

  • But every time you think to them playing a team that could run the football, a team that could be a physical football football team up front, that's when they lose.

  • Whether it's the San Francisco 40 Niners last year, the Indianapolis coach this year even think about the Minnesota Vikings when Dalvin Cook came to town.

  • So you had Derrick Henry standing across in you.

  • A man that's run his way into some M V.

  • P.

  • Conversation is definitely offensive player of the year.

  • And that team needed to stand up defensively and they did it.

  • And then you watched outside, whether it was Kevin King Jr.

  • Alexander, who's ascended into the top of the cornerback conversation, those dudes locked up and so I don't care.

  • You know, Don talked about the Pittsburgh Steelers in the conversation, being whenever you paired, compared team to the Kansas City Chiefs.

  • You know they're all gonna pale in comparison, but that's what it is right for the time when the Golden State Warriors were the Golden State Warriors.

  • Before they got K D, it was, Can you put a team together?

  • That's good enough to beat them?

  • Well, that's who the Kansas City Chiefs are now.

  • When you watch Green play last night, you say, You know what this team can.

  • This team has a quarterback that can play with him.

  • This team has a defense who's now playing better football, and so you start to see those things.

  • You get excited whenever Rogers man, like I said earlier, when he runs the football, gets clipped and he's looking at you with that side.

  • I smiling.

  • You start to know dudes in his bag.

  • He feels he's feeling comfortable.

  • He's in such a different place from where he was in April, when the Green Bay Packers drafted Jordan Love.

  • See those two fingers of Scots?

  • For Jordan, love was so he could calm down and not going to building and choke somebody.

  • Now, the two fingers of Scotch is because I know I really ain't gonna do nothing until late next week because we're balling like that.

  • And for this defense to step up Hit Derrick Henry in the mouth.

  • Toe turnover.

  • Ryan Tannehill Twice It's shown growth is shown that the one weakness on this team has now at least become good enough toe, have them in every football game.

  • And now number 12 gotta go be number 12.

  • And you believe in that You're confident in that.

  • And so they prove something last night that I don't I don't think they have to prove thio us that they had to prove to themselves.

  • And you gotta be feeling good if you're Matt LaFleur in the Green Bay Packers.

  • Yeah, I think the big thing that you said there is Alexander and King at the corners.

  • And that secondary you brought up Darnell Savage earlier.

  • That secondary is really improved and playing quite well.

  • I think that matters, but it goes back to a point that I made earlier When we're talking about the Chiefs is if your game plan is to go in and stop the offense, then you're in trouble.

  • You need to have an offense that can score and put pressure on them.

  • And they absolutely seemed to have that.

  • And you're right.

  • Aaron Rodgers is playing so well that he has changed the way he uses Scotch before, it was a stress reliever.

  • That's the bad.

  • That's a bad way to use Scotch.

  • Scotch is for celebrating.

  • Now it's a celebratory Scotch.

  • That's fine.

  • I don't have no worries about you.

  • If you if you want the division, you're going to the playoffs.

  • You got home field advantage and you have a little sip.

  • But if you have a because you're sad, then we got concerns.

  • Are you upset?

  • Then we are concerned this is headed in the wrong direction.

  • But I think we all agree that the Packers earlier in the season I think I would have said that the that the FC whoever comes out of a F C is going to be the Super Bowl champion.

  • I'm not so sure about that.

  • I think that if the Packers make it to the championship, they are the only team I think on the NFC side that I feel confident can knock off the Chiefs or knock off whoever comes out of the F C.

  • I think if the Bills come out then I think the Bills beat everyone except for the Packers.

  • If the if the Chiefs come out, they beat everyone except for the Packers and not saying the Packers will win.

  • But I think it's gonna be a game because Aaron Rodgers can score so much that is gonna put pressure on.

  • You don't have to compete and they have covered guys, which we know the secondary is finally getting their due because they make the game so hard for us.

  • The most important thing I think on the defense and most good defense is recognized this and are built this way is to have good, good to great, reliable secondary player.

  • You can.

  • You can kind of fudge around the edges on the rest of those positions and the things that you need to compete.

  • But you can't cover in the back end.

  • You can't play man coverage on important down situations.

  • You can't blitz every now and then because you can trust your guys in the back.

  • You can't play defense.

  • You can't win in this league.

  • At this point, I have a question.

  • After last night we saw Aaron Rodgers really go off four touchdowns and now, as a result he is in the lead in the M V P race over Pat Mahomes.

  • Do you each think that Aaron Rodgers is more deserving to win M.

  • V p at this point after what you saw yesterday?

  • Yeah, I say this for sure.

  • I do, Yeah, take it down.

  • I for sure do.

  • Because I was a guy who was kind of, like, really, really far against.

  • This is the best we've ever seen Aaron Rodgers play, and maybe I'm scarred.

  • Maybe it was because I played him, you know, when he was a Super Bowl M V p.

  • And obviously, the next year he wins the M v P.

  • And I felt like he was playing at a level that made me think to myself that he's better than Peyton Manning, that he's better than Drew Brees.

  • That he's better then Tom Brady.

  • And at that time he was.

  • This is an individual player as watching him play the position.

  • He was the best I had ever seen.

  • And then you watch this year and and some of those same athletic things and some of those same throws he's making.

  • Not as often, but he just seems more comfortable, and he actually seems to be having fun.

  • You know, it was almost like when you used to watch Aaron Rodgers move and Aaron Rodgers play.

  • It was it was to spite who he was playing against.

  • Now it's to enjoy who he's playing with.

  • It's the belief he has in Davante Adams.

  • It's knowing that no matter if you put Malcolm Butler over there, no matter if you slide the safety over there, if you give him space, I could get him the ball.

  • If you're gonna play him man to man, he can run around and get open.

  • Knowing that I could go to a J Dillan now or Erin Jones or Jamal Williams, it's if he's playing.
