There is a growing number that reflects negatively on the Packers and more specifically Aaron Rodgers; 4th quarter come backs.
* Rodgers career record, with the ball in his hand late in the 4th quarter, with a win still feesible, is 3-20. That record compares with Bill Kenney of the 80′s Chiefs who went 3-27 for his career.
Bill who….my point exactly.
* Since 1960, 26 quarterbacks have produced in one season as many game-winning drives (6) as Rodgers has produced in his career.
Now Rodgers can’t be penalized for getting his team out to big leads, leads that his team would never relinquish, nor have many of those QBs who are seemingly better than him in the 4th quarter, ever won 19 games in a row including a Super Bowl and a league MVP.
The truth lies somewhere in between….but the fact is, with the game on the line, in the 4th quarter, Rodgers has got to get his team to perform better. Remember, we give the quarterbacks all the credit for wins, in that same spirit, they have to shoulder the blame in a loss as well.
