Inbox: This game will mean more in the long run

Good morning, Mike. Our boys from the Bay beat themselves…so we have that goin’ for us which is nice!

The other guys even tried to beat themselves, too. One of the more bizarre games I can recall.

Serenity now! As a fan, that was the type of game that leaves me questioning the cost/benefit of investing three-plus hours watching football.

Were you not entertained?

I know you should win in regulation to eliminate chance, but honestly has any player every been as let down by his team in OT as Aaron Rodgers has been during his career? I don’t remember his defense ever stopping the opponent and when he has touched the ball, I believe he’s had a three-and-out, the Marquez Valdes-Scantling fumble and the uncalled blatant facemask strip-sack against the Cardinals. Honestly he should start lobbying to just never play for OT…

He has just two overtime wins in his career (Cincinnati in ’17, N.Y. Jets in ’18), which is hard to believe, and the latter one didn’t even mean anything. But you’re right, a lot of circumstance and bad luck. I thought with the way the Colts’ defense was reeling from that two-minute drive, winning the toss meant points at a minimum.
