Coach LaFleur’s controversial 4th down call just before half time was also probably a turning point in the game. But in their hour of need, Rodgers could not be found. Here’s what a certain NFL Hall of Famer said on the same.

Shannon Sharpe has some honest feedback for Aaron Rodgers

Skip Bayless and Shannon Sharpe were at it again today as they re-analyzed Sunday’s Packers vs Buccaneers game at Lambeau Field. The former, who is an outspoken Aaron Rodgers supporter, had some interesting words directed towards the 37-year-old veteran.

He said, “I’m more disappointed in this game because he had all the pieces to get the job done and he didn’t get it done. He had 3 opportunities, they (Packers defense) gave you 3 turnovers, and you cashed for 6 points, that’s not good enough for Aaron Rodgers. Aaron Rodgers is better than that.

“Of all the Championship games that he’s lost, Skip, I’m most disappointed in this one…I’m disappointed in Aaron because I know he can play better than this,” Sharpe said on the podcast.

Despite his nervy post-game interview after the NFC Championship loss, Rodgers is expected to return for the Packers in 2021.

He remains one of the leading contenders for this year’s MVP award. But coach LaFleur and Co. will need to go back to the drawing board in the coming weeks.

Can the Packers return to the NFC finale next season? Tell us your thoughts in the comments section below.
