Listen: NFL, Aaron Rodgers And Emmanuel Sanders discussed on Dave Ramsey
"Man. Allowing him to come back and address the team the team supposedly gave him a standing ovation when he was done. Joe Philbin said that he did a great job with it. This is certainly out of the ordinary. I guess in a lot of ways it fits with the Green Bay Packers. What's your take? Yeah. And it's amazing that I ran through all the news. And I didn't mention coaching news. The we had Sunday night. I mean, that's what that's how crazy it has been this week. But you know, as far as the Packers go this does jibe with how they do business. I honestly was surprised as McCarthy was that he ended up getting fired Sunday night. Because generally, they they let people finish seasons. I mean, they don't do things like other teams they should handle it in the more respectful way. Now, I do think that this was something that was warranted considering just how bad that loss was. And it was as bad as you could imagine losing to one of the worst teams in the NFL at home to knock you out of the playoffs. But I do like that he was allowed to come back. I mean, there's no animosity. So he was allowed to come back saves piece to the team. He deserves a standing ovation. He's won a Super Bowl. However, it was also clearly time going to ask you about this a little bit later on in the show. But I'm gonna ask you to when you start talking about extending your search for the next coach is going to be there have been people that have been weighing in on you know, how that coach fits with Aaron Rodgers almost to the effect of desire and Rogers get a a say in trying to guide this search one way or another is Aaron Rodgers and easy guy to coach. I would say he is not he is a very difficult person to coach not different from Peyton Manning. Tom Brady's not quite like this. But extremely demanding to remember this is the top point. Oh, oh, one percent of all humans just as far as talent. So when people say like are these guys normal like no coaching Aaron Rodgers is not normal. He is insanely demanding. He's detail oriented let you know what he. Thinks he throws the football. Maybe better than anyone else. Just as far as purely throwing it in history. He is a freak in a lot of ways. And so I think he's difficult and demanding to coach I think it's incredibly rewarding when you do it. Right. Like, you can you know, someone will take over this job and had the ability to win the Super Bowl every year. They have it. That's how good Aaron Rodgers is and can be, but no it is certainly certainly not easy. You began talking a little bit about Kareem hunts, and you're talking about a young man who had a rushing championship is a rookie. You can't get a more spectacular fall in a quicker period of time. And there is for him right now does he play in the NFL again? I would say I very much expect him to play in the NFL. Again. I don't see this as a situation similar to Ray rice because you know, Ray rice was older and kind of on the downside of his career. And for better or worse. The reality is there are different rules for different players of different towns. Ray rice. First of all being the first we have seen. We had seen like this to basically go viral and a public video punching his his then girlfriend now wife he was on the downside of his career. And unfortunately for him because I you know, I think he deserved based on how he turned his life around and became a better person for this. He did not get another chance. I do think Kareem hunt will get another chance. I do think it'll be this off season. But some of the will be predicated on how he does what he does to himself as a person to get better and learn from this and get to the root of the issues that led him to may evolved in three at least violent incidents, and that is not very good. And that is one thing the NFL is they're looking into all of them last thing when it was trade deadline time. I guess it seemed like a good idea at the time. But does trading Marius Thomas end up coming up in circling back on John Elway now that Emmanuel Sanders is lost for the year. I cannot wait to find out the answer to this question because you know, my heart. I would say yes, you lost one of the best receivers you've had certainly one of the best in franchise history. Now, you lose Emmanuel Sanders and who do you throw to? Okay. That's definitely one way to look at it. The other way is what if the guy who step in our good what if day, Sean, Hamilton, all all the sudden is hiding on the bench and kind of it, you know, in plain sight what if he is as good as Emmanuel Sanders. What if Portland Sutton becomes the next Damaris Thomas all these things are possible? And I would say I can't wait to find out because you're all talented people. Emmanuel Sanders is great. But he's do ten million next year. No guarantee he's going to be back. We need to know what the future of the Broncos is and guess what we are gonna find out this weekend. And I'm kind of excited about I have to say, I really am. Thanks a lot. Appreciate we'll talk to you next week. I look forward to it. Thank you.
