Aaron Rodgers took a potshot from the clouds at Joe Judge and the New York Giants.
During his weekly appearance Tuesday on “The Pat McAfee Show,” Rodgers spoke about the scenario in which the Chargers and Raiders could have both made the playoffs with a tie, and channeled former Jets coach Herm Edwards.
“You play to win the game,” Rodgers said. “Nobody wants to be a part of kneeling the s–t out to take a tie.”
Rodgers then turned his ire towards the Giants’ pathetic surrender of a quarterback sneak call deep in their own territory in Sunday’s season finale against the Washington Football Team.
“You know what would make me lose my mind almost as much as that?” Rodgers said. “Third-and-9 on the -5, let’s go in goal-line personnel and run a quarterback sneak.”
McAfee asked Rodgers if he would call an audible on that play.
“Call that one in Matt [LaFleur], and let’s see what happens,” Rodgers laughed.
Rodgers then tipped his hat to ESPN’s Dan Orlovsky, who ripped the call on Twitter.
“That was unbelievable. The breakdown that [Dan Orlovsky] had on that was pretty amazing,” he said.
While Rodgers and the Packers have a week to rest up before the divisional round of the NFC playoffs, the Giants, meanwhile, will soon be hiring a new general manager after Dave Gettleman retired Monday after four dismal seasons.
Giants coach Joe Judge remains at the helm as of Tuesday afternoon.
