Aaron Rodgers is a class act.
He showed up on behalf of the Green Bay Packers at the White House on Wednesday, and he did the only decent thing you’re going to see on a visit to Washington.
But wait. That’s not enough.
He should have gone on Wednesday with his family.
OK, back to Cinco de Mayo, and how it relates to Jeff Fisher.
Is it just me, or are the Packers trying to make life as difficult for Jeff Fisher as possible?
They hired Fisher as a coach to resurrect what was an effective franchise, one that had been in Super Bowl contention regularly and at least when he was the coach.
Then, nearly all of Fisher’s successes in the playoffs came at the expense of the NFC North’s Chicago Bears.
And now, when the Bears finally find some sort of luck in winning a playoff game, well, it’s tantamount to witchcraft.
So, the Packers taunted Fisher by hiring the man whose record against the Bears was abysmal. The Bears went 15-17 against the Bucs in his four years, and none of those games were truly close. Those games resulted in four thumpings.
And now, the Bears will be playing with nothing to lose Thursday night when the Packers visit Soldier Field.
Whatever. Just can’t stop myself.
Aaron Rodgers is the Packers’ highest-paid player, with an annual salary of $22 million.
When all is said and done, that’s going to be his responsibility for making up for the payroll the Packers will have to pay when the Bears pay Ray McDonald.
But for once, he should have come alone.
