Listen: Coach Baker Rogers, Brady Peyton Manning And Aaron Rodgers discussed on CBS Sports Radio
"Somebody else's fault. And you know, you look historically forgetting Brady Peyton Manning's teams had double digit wins thirteen consecutive seasons. The idea of him missing the playoffs was unfathomable. So would you really put Rogers over him much less Brady? And then drew Brees who statistically? More yards per game better. Completion percentage has done it at a higher level for longer. And then there's clearly the the counter argument, which is that that Rogers is the only reason is team is relevant. But I would counter that counterargument by saying. The entire Seahawks. Offense has been Russell Wilson for years. Now the entire panther's offense has been Cam Newton for years now. And you don't see those guys getting the same level of credit that Aaron Rodgers does. You don't. Imagine a scenario where they wouldn't be catching heat if they were over there last eight on the road like Rogers if they were losing to the cardinals. And here's the the secret Aaron Rodgers just hasn't been good this year. I know he's got some nice statistics as far as like touchdown to interception rate. But a lot of what he's doing out. There reminds me of like how manning is doing that. And I'm not saying he's he's manning. But what I mean is if you look at ally Manning's completion percentage this year if you look at ally Manning's touchdown to interception ratio. It's good. But he's gotten killed. Getting killed. And another thing I've noticed with Rogers aside from a lot of his passes is being inaccurate. He's missing like screen passes. And all that sometimes he just doesn't take the play that he has. There was one game recently where he had a guy in a slant that would have picked up a first down and instead he decided to run around and eventually led to an incomplete pass. So. I think a lot of this has on his shoulders as well. You can't just blame. Mccarthy. It's the easy thing to do. Which? Opens up. A big big chapter of of Rogers career coming up when the new coach comes in. Now, maybe he has a late career renaissance. Drew brees. I mean, look we we were probably saying stuff about drew Brees a few years ago, and it being the end of the road and look where he's at right now. So that that could certainly happen. But I watch Aaron Rodgers maybe he's injured. I kind of wonder if dude is washed I kind of wonder if he just kinda past his prime on top of everything else. And. He doesn't seem like the easiest guy to get along with or coach at times. You know, seems like the kind of guy that. Believes he knows best which would be fine. If the results were there like I don't care about that. Look, I don't care if he was, you know, Peyton Manning used to change everything at the line of scrimmage. Lebron James calls his own plays on the court when the results are there. You'll never hear me complain about that. Stars can do that. That's fine. But for Rogers the results haven't been there as of late. So all right. If you bash show me why that's true. Show me why that's true. Which creates a, you know, a fascinating dynamic in the sense that. That coaching job is open and should be very desirable. We even have to pose the question, and I'm sure the answer to this is most coaches are going to take it most coaches are going to happily take it for the chance to coach Rogers. But it leads to that question of. Is there a possibility a coach wouldn't want that job considering where Rogers is that in his career? And and who he is as a guy. That's a bad guy. But headstrong. And again, maybe not the easiest guy to to mesh with or get along with Thomson. And then there's another open job. Which is the one in Cleveland. With Baker Mayfield. Who's on the come up in the Browns? They had a little bit of a post. Hugh jackson. They were they were flying high, and they they won played well for a while there. And what did they went to games in a row? Atlanta and Cincinnati before reality came back to him. Against houston. There's still not a good team. But they've got some pieces on the defensive side. And I think we've seen enough from Baker now where you realize okay, he's he's he's the real deal. I know, you know, the timing's not great for that. Because he threw what three picks last week. But overall you look at his season eighteen touchdowns ten interceptions. Sixty three percent completion percentage. Ninety one quarterback rating as a rookie on the Browns. That's pretty good. And you just watch him play. You see as he has the the elusive if factor, and then there's some similarities between he and in Rogers in a little bit of the moxie they have. But I think Baker is a little bit more transparent about it. Which I find. Appealing. So that leads to a pretty natural question. You know, if you had asked this before the year, people would say, you're crazy like which job would you rather have the Browns are the Packers? Who would you rather coach Aaron Rodgers or Baker Mayfield? But now that's a legitimate question. No fewer coach looking for your big opportunity. Would you rather?
