Freedom For Rodgers

Freedom For Rodgers

Mike McCarthy is expecting quite a bit out of Aaron Rodgers in his fourth season including an expanded role in play calling at the line.

It's obvious the Mike McCarthy has more confidence than ever in allowing Aaron Rodgers more pre-snap flexibility at the line this season.

"His understanding of the offense has really been intact now, in my opinion, this will be the fourth year, and we'll play to that more and challenge him with more things at the line," McCarthy said. "I think he is a very good 'at the line' player, whether it's a two-or-three, possibly four-way play selection."

Personally I think this should really excite Packer fans. Of all the 'news' coming out of non-padded camp, this is the intellectual stuff that really matters. You saw Aaron struggle last season with play calls that quite simply were too time consuming to develop in most situations. You certainly have to blame the line and Aaron for some of the sacks in those moments, but letting McCarthy off the hook for not adjusting his play calling earlier last year most definitely needs to be factored in.

You know how to fix that problem? You develop your quarterback with the skill to analyze and compute the situation and make more of his own calls accordingly. Sounds like Mike McCarthy has done just that. Watching Rodgers walk to the line armed with four plays at his disposal gets my heart pumping to say the least.

There. Tangible news without pads. It's about time.

Hit the nail on the head.

MM bet against the very high pct (lost of Aaron)and came out the winner.Rodgers survived and now has the in battle experience against the more opposing foes for 2010.Mike please never make a bet like that again!!! Especially without having a solid security backing it.

Yes.

I love it. As long as he's not hurt, with a weak arm and bum ankle, and calls out of a run play, only to get intercepted...
