Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers hasn’t faced many NFL defenders that can give him a proper fight.
The Super Bowl-winning quarterback is one of the most gifted passers the game has ever seen. However, he too, can struggle at times.
Earlier this week, Rodgers made his weekly appearance on the Pat McAfee Show where McAfee asked who has given Rodgers trouble during his NFL career.
The Packers star quarterback mentioned someone he’s very familiar with – Minnesota Vikings safety Harrison Smith. Green Bay and Minnesota play twice a year, so it’s not surprising Rodgers mentioned someone he sees very often.
Here’s what he had to say, via Vikings Territory:
“He’s the most frustrating guy I play against with his disguises, because he does so many different things from the line of scrimmage — blitz, play the curl flat in a two-invert, run back and play quarter safety, run back and play the half, run back and play the middle-field third. It’s a little maddening sometimes with what they do.”
While Rodgers gave credit to Smith, he had no trouble torching the Vikings secondary this season.
In two games against Minnesota, the star quarterback racked up 655 passing yards with seven passing touchdowns and no interceptions.
Despite the incredible stats from Rodgers, the Packers were only able to win the first of the two matchups.
