All everyone wants in football is consistency in fairness on both sides. If you’re going to throw ticky tack pass interference calls, do it on both teams. Make up calls are fine with me, just make it even out on both sides.
So when I have to suffer through over 14 days of relentless criticism of Tom Brady specifically despite the fact that he has actually not looked bad or inaccurate this year if you actually watch football with your eyes, I just want to make sure people see these stats from Aaron Rodgers performance against the San Francisco 49ers. That’s it.

Anytime you break a record from 1950 it’s either a lifetime achievement or a disgusting embarrassment. I’m not saying anything about Aaron Rodgers, I’ll just let you be the judge what this one is.
That’s the problem in this case. Everyone is too scared to say anything critical against Aaron Rodgers. If he can cut out his entire family, there’s no telling what he’s capable of. It’s like the media is scared of him being a little grumpy at the podium and telling them to R-E-L-A-X that they just don’t bother.
Again, I’m not saying anything bad about Aaron Rodgers either, I just want to make sure people saw this in case they don’t necessarily always follow Next Gen Stats.
Aaron Rodgers did not complete a pass over 10+ air yards (0 for 8) for the first time in a game he finished in the Next Gen Stats era (since 2016).

Entering tonight, Aaron Rodgers had never passed for fewer than 161 yards when attempting 30+ passes in his career.
The 49ers limited Rodgers to 104 yards on 33 pass attempts.

Aaron Rodgers threw for 104 yards on 33 attempts. The only player in the past 5 seasons to throw for fewer yards on 30+ attempts in a game was Sam Darnold in the "Seeing Ghosts Game" vs Pats this season (86 yards on 32 attempts)

Aaron Rodgers has been in the league 15 years, he is 35 years old. Is he falling of the cliff? I’m not saying he is I’m just asking the question because no one else is. I mean I spent at least an hour and a half switching back and forth between Gameday Prime with Chris Rose’s bloated face and SportsCenter with SVP (I could only handle so much Ryan Clark) and I didn’t hear Aaron Rodgers’ performance mentioned one single time. So I just wanted to make sure we mentioned it.
