Tom Brady made headlines earlier this month when he called out the NFL’s product. The seven-time Super Bowl champion said the quarterback position is being taught the wrong way because every hard hit from a defensive player ends up being a penalty.
“I think as a quarterback, and I bet Tom would probably agree with this statement, but my greatest fear forever was laying one of your teammates out,” Rodgers said. “Like, the last thing you want to do is lead a guy into a big hit that caused him to get concussed or, God forbid, not being able to get off the field on his own power.
“That’s your greatest fear because that guy is trusting you with his healthy really. As much as I’m trusting David Bakhtiari and my linemen to protect me, those guys are trusting me to protect them with the throw, and that’s why the West Coast offense has always been predicated on proper number and location for the football, and that’s the way I learned and it was to allow for yards after the catch and to throw the ball away from contact for your stud players. So that was the greatest fear of mine.”
This is certainly an interesting take from Rodgers on this subject.
Rodgers also called out fans who think Brady is whining about the new rules. He thinks it’s hard to play defense in today’s game.
Do you agree with Brady and Rodgers’ stance on the state of the NFL?
