‘That Sh*t Ain’t Flying’: Aaron Rodgers Gives Brutally Honest Verdict on NY Giants’ Horrible QB Sneak on 3rd and 9

Published 01/12/2022, 7:27 AM EST


Aaron Rodgers fell prey to the Manningcast curse in the season finale, as the Green Bay Packers failed to outperform the lowly Detroit Lions. The Lions showed off in the last game what they could have been the whole season, but couldn’t make the plays that they were supposed to.

However, it was not the same for the New York Giants. Since they consistently made plays that produced little to nothing throughout their matchup against Washington Football team. That summed up their season so far. Yet the worst one was their QB sneak on 3rd and 9 on their own 4 yard line.

That was possibly the worst play a coach could have called for in that situation. The Giants, however, went with it and gained just one yard. The Giants head coach Joe Judge was criticised for his pathetic call throughout social media. And Aaron Rodgers contributed his fair share of criticism on the trend as well.

Aaron Rodgers rips off the New York Giants

The Green Bay Packers quarterback during his weekly appearance on ‘The Pat McAfee Show’ this Tuesday ripped off the Giants for the same. He said that if the Packets coach Matt LaFleur had called such a play on a third and long, the ball wouldn’t fly.

“You play to win the game,” Rodgers said. “Nobody wants to be a part of kneeling the sh*t out to take a tie. You know what would make me lose my mind almost as much as that? Third-and-9 on the -5, let’s go in goal-line personnel and run a quarterback sneak. Call that one in Matt [LaFleur] and let’s see what happens.”

Referring to the point-to-point breakdown of the play by football analyst Dan Orlovsky, Rodgers added, “That was unbelievable. The breakdown that [Dan Orlovsky] had on that was pretty amazing.”

That play made the Giants the laughingstock for the night on Twitter. However, following that 13th loss of the Giants, head coach Joe Judge got dismissed of his duties Tuesday.
