Since the Aaron Rodgers bombshell changed lives across the NFL, the Raiders and Broncos have frequently been mentioned as possible destinations for the disgruntled QB. You can debate which team is a better fit all you want, I don’t care. In either scenario, football fans would get Aaron Rodgers vs. Patrick Mahomes twice a year.
(How has that not been talked about more, by the way?)
I’ve been thinking about it and been wondering: coincidence or not? Does Aaron Rodgers actually find Las Vegas and Denver appealing, or does he want to meet Mahomes at least twice every single year, perhaps more, depending on how the playoffs shake out? Rich Eisen said Monday that Rodgers wants it, with “it” meaning sending Mahomes to the Wild Card yearly:
“I heard he’d happily go to Denver because they’ve got the weapons,” Eisen said. “He doesn’t care that it’s in Mahomes’ division. He would actually love to personally beat Mahomes. He would love to send Mahomes to the Wild Card every single year. This is what I’ve been told.”
"Is it personal or is it business? It's both."

Yeah, yeah, that’s MJ-like.
A coward like LeBron runs from opposing threats on the court. A man like Aaron Rodgers chases them down. And, a smart man like Aaron Rodgers tries to get the hell away from Tom Brady’s conference. It’s not that Tom Brady is better than Mahomes. He’s not, but Brady doesn’t really lose in the playoffs. It’s sort of not fair.
Another great outcome would be how angry the sports media would get when Rodgers outplays Mahomes twice a year. For some reason, those guys really want to crown Mahomes and kick Rodgers out of the top bracket. Weird, given who was better last season…
The football world needs this.
