The Green Bay Packers pulled off a pretty surprising move in the third round when they drafted Worcester native and University of California-Berkely Tight End/Wide Receiver Richard Rodgers. The St. John’s, Shrewsbury 2011 graduate wasn’t expected to go until the the 6th or 7th round, and many said that he came out a year too early.
First of all, this is a pretty cool pick and a sweet deal for Rodgers. He gets to play with the best quarterback in the NFL. And the last time the Packers selected a Rodgers out of California I’d say it worked out pretty well for them. Aaron Rodgers to Richard Rodgers will be the hottest connection in the NFL next year. Trust me, I know this shit, this is going to work out just fine.
I’ve seen what Rogers can do in person several times. Dude has the best hands since Jerry Rice. You throw any blunt object in his direction and he will grab it. He’s like Aaron Hernandez except without all the murdering. One handed, two handed, doesn’t matter. You throw it towards him it was caught. Period. At Cal he did the same thing, making the impossible look routine….
But at Cal they brought in a new coach that doesn’t use tight end, obviously because he’s a moron. Predictably they Golden Bears went 1-11 this year and Rodgers said “fuck it, Im going to get paid.” His father is the special teams coach for for the Carolina Panthers, and was on the field for “the play” in 1982:
At St. John’s he was a four year starter in basketball, and won four straight District Championships, a State Championship as a sophomore, and as a junior lost another shot at a state title when Providence College’s Carson Desrosiers hit two foul shots with no time left at the DCU Center.
Scouts are shitting on him because his 40 time is 4.87, and current Packers Tight End Jermichael Finley ran a 4.67. Newsflahsh – Jermichael Finley borderline sucks. He can’t stay on the field. Sure he’s got all those things that make him look good at the combine. But Rodgers does the most important thing a Tight End can do – catch the football. I’m calling at least five touchdowns next year for the Rodgers to Rodgers connection.
I don’t know watch the NFL draft mainly because it’s boring as hell. The morons that have nothing better to do but sit on their ass all day and wait until Roger Goodell finally comes out and announces their team drafted some guy who they have never seen play are the biggest losers on earth. Although I do have to admit, booing and heckling Roger Goodell every five minutes does seem like a good time. But these idiots all go nuts because the players they draft have a cool highlight film, so they all jump around like they just won the fucking lottery. Well, except for Jets fans. They just boo everything because, well, they’re Jets fans.
But Packers fans aren’t too happy with this pick. They think GM Ted Thompson overreached. I can’t wait to hear what America’s biggest cheeshead dooshnozzle Mike Felger has to say about this. I’m sure he’ll be echoing the crap you’ve seen like this:
But by far the harshest critic so far has been a local Wisconsin rabble rouser that goes by the name of “Tef Man,” most likely because Tough Man, Tuff Man, Duff Man, and Teflon Man were already taken.
Newsflash Tef Man – Rodgers can play two of the three positions you just said the Packers should target. So what’s the problem here? The “experts” say he’s a sixth or seventh round pick? You know who else was sixth and seventh round material? Tom Brady and Richard Sherman. So if the Patriots or Seahawks drafted either of those guys in the third round would you give them a D, as you’ve so eloquently done on Twitter?
Because I was totally wondering what the report card from some abrasive fan of no particular significance was on the Packers third round draft picks. Now is this just a progress report or is this the final grade? Can Rodgers do some extra credit to bring his grade up, Mr. Watch Me Work? But hey, I’ve seen him play, so what do I know? I’ve seen him scorch Fitchburg for 5 touchdowns in a 50-0 romp. But then again, I’m not nearly as accomplished as this guy:
