Over the past couple of days many people have been wondering whether or not it is a bright thing for Aaron Rodgers to take up the team’s play calling task this is after Mike McCarthy announced that he will no longer be making the play calls. As for Aaron Rodgers this is actually something that is not that necessary.
“There is no one in the NFL who does that at the moment even Peyton Manning doesn’t do it,” Rodgers when asked on whether or not he will taking p the role of play calling in the team.
A statement that was later issued by Rodgers indicated that he indeed realizes the importance that comes with having a play caller but also in his statement, he debunked a well-known myth that have been surrounding the 5-time National Football League most valuable player.
Rodgers revelation regarding play call, in that a quarterback cannot take up the role of a play caller is surprising and the fact that the information is coming from one of the respected NFL QBs makes it even more surprising. Despite the fact that some of the most experienced quarterbacks in the NFL have been given lots of freedom when it comes to plays in the famous scrimmage line, they are not in a position of taking up the role of play caller. Rodgers believes that even greats such as Payton Manning won’t be able to achieve such a fate.
According to Rodgers, regardless of the quarterback, one needs to have someone on the sideline who would be calling the plays and sharing it with the quarterback via the helmet of the QB.
