Why Aaron Rodgers Will Soon Be the Quarterback of the Pittsburgh Steelers

Colin Cowherd: “I’ve always had this theory: smart people don’t have a right to get conveniently dumb. Remember Deflategate? Bill Belichick has his pulse on the entire franchise and then suddenly doesn’t know what’s going on with the footballs. Suddenly he was conveniently absent-minded. Aaron Rodgers is really smart, he’s one of those guys who is manipulative and can see around corners. Before and after playing the Steelers he talked about Mike Tomlin. Let’s not go crazy here but Aaron is too smart to suddenly conveniently become very casual with his lovefest for Pittsburgh. My point is that Aaron knows what he’s doing. The Steelers have three losses and I count at least nine more losses on their schedule. This is going to be a BAD team. Combine that with the fact that Baltimore appears to have a star quarterback, Joe Burrow is really good and has star receivers, and the Browns have a really good head coach, a great o-line, a really sharp GM, and a franchise quarterback they mostly love. Pittsburgh is staring at a hole for years. With Mike Tomlin and that defense, you’re just going to roll the dice on a 50% hit rate first-round college quarterback? How do you solve this? You don’t go college, you go get Aaron Rodgers. What wins in sports in 2021? AGGRESSIVE. We’ve seen it with the Lakers and we’ve seen it with the Dodgers. Aaron Rodgers is way too smart to just throw it out there. He wants people to know that he likes Tomlin. He’s not just throwing it out there with any coach. He’s throwing it out there to the one franchise with a great defense, great wide receiver talent, great ownership group, great GM, great scouting, and who just happens to have a quarterback who should be in a rocking chair. Aaron is smart. You don’t get to be conveniently silly and glib when you’re as smart as Aaron Rodgers. You and I know that Green Bay wants to get Aaron into the AFC. They don’t want to have to face him again, they want him in the other place.” (Full Video Above)
