“I have a ton of respect for Mike, I think he’s a fantastic coach and I love the way that he leads. I love the way he talks after the games. Always seems to keep things really even keel. And looks like he’s somebody that the players love playing for him.”

“Having [T.J. Watt] back is a total game-changer if he plays this week, which I’m expecting him to. They’re 1-2 right now coming off a tough divisional loss. That seems like a dangerous football team, so we’re gonna have to be ready to go,” Rodgers said on the show.
