After beating the vaunted Los Angeles Rams handily, Monday was a day for the Packers to sit back and receive their flowers. As positivity flowed into Titletown from across the country, Colin Cowherd went big in his belief in the current Packers team.
Cowherd spent a nearly four and a half minute monologue focusing on the superiority of the Green and Gold. “Aaron Rodgers and the Green Bay Packers do not have to be in love.” Proclaimed Cowherd. “Bill Belichick and Brady for 20 years never went to dinner. Not a one time. 20 years a bunch of Superbowls. I don’t care if Aaron doesn’t love Green Bay’s front office and I don’t care if Green Bay’s front office doesn’t love Aaron, just do what people can do, compartmentalize. Because Green Bay is the best football team in the NFL and I’m not sure it’s close right now. They can play fast, they can play physical, they can win shootouts, they can win with defense.”
Much of Cowherd’s reasoning focused on Green Bay’s incredible ability to adapt to their difficult injury situation. “Folks, they’ve been missing five or six of their BEST players. And not just THEIR best players. Jaire Alexander is maybe the best corner in football…They’re not just losing starters, they’re losing Pro Bowl guys. Doesn’t matter. It just doesn’t matter. I can’t see the flaw, I don’t see the limitation.”
Cowherd continued, ultimately landing on his feeling that Green Bay and Aaron Rodgers are perfect together and need to keep this thing going for the foreseeable future. “Aaron, Packers, rip up your contract.” Cowherd said. “Sign a new one. Four, five-year deal. Take care of Aaron, he’s good for you, you’re good for him. It’s a loaded roster. This team to me should be an overwhelming Super Bowl favorite.”
