Looks like the Packers will have 2 quarterbacks in Canton for the Hall of Fame induction weekend this August, one is going in the Hall, and the other is adding to his resume (kinda – he’s already a Hall of Famer in my book).
We all know by now that former Packer Brett Favre is going to be enshrined in the Pro Football Hall of Fame later this year, but, word came out Tuesday that the NFL has scheduled the Packers to play the Colts in the Hall of Fame Game that weekend as well. The Hall of Fame game usually correlates the two teams with it’s prominent inductees. Therefore, Favre = the Packers, Tony Dungy and Marvin Harrison = the Colts.
GREAT for Packer fans, not so great for #12 Aaron Rodgers. Rodgers made it clear last year that he is not a fan of preseason games especially a FIFTH!
“I don’t think we need four. Two teams have to play five. That’s tough on everybody. Obviously, it’s important for young players to show what they can do. But a lot of times there’s agreements between coaches to maybe not pressure the [quarterback] during a game or do a certain type of coverage, or there are agreements within organizations in game plans that you’re not going to show different plays. How much of a real game are you really simulating? I’d say a lot less than people think.” (9/2/14 FOX Sports)
So of course yesterday one of Rodger’s Twitter followers
