Even though he will never see it, there was always a stark difference between the two quarterbacks when he was covering them. Rodgers had not killed a Packers season himself.

One of my favorite winter traditions was it. The headlines about him being a gunslinger and practicing his walk in the mirror the night before the game made him think he was Doc Holliday. In the playoffs, he would throw an unconscionable pick-six that would end the Packers' season. He shared the wealth for the Vikings.

It would get a lot of attention in the next season because of the fact that he is having fun. He was a motherfucker until he killed everyone else. He thought he was the one who saved the town from the bad guys, and he could just blow them all out. He never did anything else but shoot himself in the dick. Ask Giants, Eagles, or Saints fans if they know anything about it.

Rodgers is one of the best quarterbacks of all time, but he hasn't had the rings to match his status. In January, the Packers found a way to fall apart, whether it was Mike McCarthy having engine failure or something else. It is not that Rodgers has been consistently great in the playoffs, but he would be far down the list of reasons the Packers ended up in a bad place.

Is it worth asking if we would say anything about him if he wasn't hurt in the playoffs? It's where I live so let's leave that for another time.

They walk in a straight line. They spent over a decade inhaling their own farts and those of a worshiping green and gold faithful and lost any sense of reality around them. It was done with his naked clawing for attention as he wrestled with whether to retire or not. He wanted everyone to tell him how important he was until he wasn't. Rodgers did it with his mainlining any page he can find on the internet and dressing it up as his own.

What does Rodgers do now?

Rodgers has an inst that has killed his season so far. His constant-companion in black and white stripes helped him out of the first one. The only hope that Kerby Joseph would fall over laughing before the ball fell into his arms was if it came off a bat at home plate. Which it was, right?

The Packers left. The Packers are the ones to go for. Next year the Packers will have to pay $237 million. Someone is wiping away a tear with a giant check that he helped divert from children on welfare in Mississippi.

There is no chance we are finished. The same dance will be performed now. He is going to walk away from his $60 million contract next year after holding the Packers hostage for the Easter Island statue. It was pfffft. Keeping his name in the conversation has made him famous. If he goes cold turkey in retirement, he will die. He will portray himself as above it, that money doesn't matter, that he'd be happy on his own, but we all know he can't breathe without the attention. He'll hang the Packers out, he'll hint at retirement only to engineer a trade to some team that will get the pleasure of richly compensated him for the more rapid part of his decline. It might be the Jets again. There's a sense of irony in fate.

Outside of Wisconsin, a media contingent that doesn't bend to his every whim doesn't make him feel like they're just happy to be with him The only person who could come up with the noxious horseshit was Rodgers. It will turn out that the emperor only wears stupid clothes.

Those side-by-sides of Rodgers and Favre should be shown. There is a person named Collinsworth. You don't know they go deeper than you think.

Meanwhile, in Italy

The biggest party in European soccer right now is Napoli, who have extended their lead atop the Italian league. We will get into why at a later date, but for a good taste just watch Victor Osimhen gargle Sampdoria's Bram Nuytinck's soul.
