Very few quarterbacks have thrown a football like Aaron Rodgers of the Green Bay Packers. He has a smooth motion, but throws the ball with such velocity that it can get through the tightest of windows.
Packers running back/wide receiver Ty Montgomery said that the first pass Rodgers throws a receiver is so fast it can be heard.
“Sometimes I wonder if he does this purpose,” Montgomery said via the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel. “The first pass he throws to you, he kinda throws a rocket. Just to see how you’re going to handle it. When I tell you, you can hear the ball coming … you can hear it on it’s way to you.”
If the New York Giants could hear the passes coming on Sunday, it didn’t help their defense at all. Rodgers threw for 362 yards and 4 touchdowns.
He hasn’t thrown an interception since Week 10, and took the Packers from a 4-6 record to NFC North champions and a wild-card victory.
The Packers will take on the Dallas Cowboys on Sunday afternoon. Rodgers will have to be almost nearly as good as he was against the Giants.
