He (Rodgers) is a great player. We all have an immense amount of respect for him,” Reich told Good Morning Football this week. As a former quarterback, you throw out those numbers–26 touchdowns, three interceptions–and that’s commonplace for Rodgers.” He further added, “That never ceases to amaze me, how a guy turns the ball over so few times like he does, with all the times he is pushing the ball down the field. “It’s a tribute to who he is as a player and for how consistent he has been doing that as a player.” 

But Reich seems prepared for the game on Sunday, and he has a few key strategies in his mind to tackle the Packer’s rising star, Aaron Rodgers. He knows his strengths and his weaknesses. He is a former quarterback, and he knows a few ways the Colts may just be able to stop Rodgers from scoring points.

We want to slow him down, we want to try to minimize the big plays, and, through a variety of different ways, we have to try to disrupt him a little bit in the pocket.” is what Reich said when asked about Colt’s plan to stop Aaron Rodgers.
