The Green Bay Packers are undecided whether Aaron Rodgers will take pre-season snapshots, but the two-government MVP knows where he stands on the issue.
Rogers told reporters Tuesday that he wouldn't benefit from playing in the preseason. This is something I haven't done since 2018.
"I don't think we can win outside. Building," Rogers said. "If someone gets hurt:'I can't believe they played our guys.' But if we go out and stink (to start the season):' they I can't believe I didn't play them. "
" You have to do the best for the team. (Head coach) Matt (Rough Rule) does it. He relies on the leader of the football team, and if we feel we need to go out and play, we go out and play, but we don't want to go out and play only three times. No. That's a waste of time for me. "
The Packers will start Jordan Love against the San Francisco Fortininers in the opening game of the pre-season on Friday, Rough Rule announces Rogers' playtime. He added that no decision has been made yet.
Star quarterback said he had already given his opinion to the coach and he hadn't talked about it on Tuesday to "send a message" to La Fleur.
"There is no benefit to playing one series," Rogers said. "If you want to play, you have to play a quarter, a few series, a couple of series. For me, it's no use just fitting four plays."
La Fleur Rogers' stance said it "stimulates conversation" between staff on how to approach the pre-season. Rogers will not face New Orleans Saints in the second week of the preseason, leaving him with the potential to work at the preseason finale with Kansas City Chiefs, he added.
"You'll probably see it after New Orleans," La Fleur said. "So don't ask me for a few weeks."
