Green Bay has lost three in a row – including the game in which Aaron Rodgers went down against the Chicago Bears three weeks ago – and tied Minnesota on Sunday.
Their MVP quarterback has little chance to play on Thanksgiving, according to head coach Mike McCarthy.
Packers’ guard Josh Sitton thinks that may be just as well.
Sitton told Sports Radio 1250 in Milwaukee that the Detroit Lions would likely try to cheap shot Rodgers, anyway, according to Michael David Smith of NBC Sports.
His words got a little more candid, so apologies for any offensive language conveyed.
“They go after quarterbacks, their entire defense takes cheap shots all the time,” Sitton said. “That’s what they do, that’s who they are. They’re a bunch of dirtbags or scumbags. I mean, that’s just how they play. That’s how they’re coached. That starts with their frickin’ coach. That starts with their head coach, Schwartz. He’s a —-, too. I wouldn’t want to play for him. It starts with him and their D-coordinator and their D-line coach. They’re all just scumbags and so are the D-line.” [NBC Sports/Sports Radio 1250]
Rodgers fractured his collarbone back on Nov. 4th against the Chicago Bears. Green Bay is 5-5-1 and Detroit is 6-5, tied atop the NFC North with Chicago.
