Need another sign of the craziness that is 2020? How about Packers QB Aaron Rodgers showing serious respect and admiration for Lions counterpart Matthew Stafford?

That’s exactly what Rodgers did during his latest appearance on the Pat McAfee Show. A relaxed, candid Rodgers brought up Stafford unprompted as someone who deserves a lot more respect.

“I will say this,” Rodgers said. “A guy who probably doesn’t get anywhere near the credit for doing (expletive) like that all the time, he wears No. 9 and plays in Detroit. That dude, what he does with the ball is impressive. It’s really, really impressive,”

Rodgers continued, unprompted by McAfee or A.J. Hawk, who was also sitting in,

“That dude is throwing crazy no-lookers all the time. And he can throw from any arm angle. I don’t think he gets; maybe it’s Detroit…” Rodgers waxes before McAfee interjects. Rodgers then defends Stafford in the face of the Lions’ abysmal shutout loss to the Panthers.
