It was a tough Week 1 for the Inexperienced Bay Packers, however a very tough one for quarterback Aaron Rodgers.
Issues bought off to a painfully sluggish begin for the Packers, who didn’t put any factors on the board till after halftime. Rodgers threw his first interception towards an NFC North staff since 2019, and was abused by the Vikings cross rush all afternoon.
What he lacked in manufacturing underneath heart he did not make up for in different areas of his sport.
On the Packers first landing drive of the day, Rodgers tried to throw a block on Za’Darius Smith however it didn’t go the way in which he most likely anticipated it could.
Fortunately Rodgers took it in stride and appeared to respect Smith for not holding again reasonably than get flustered over being blown up on the block.
Regardless of there seemingly being no arduous emotions, one has to imagine the block was notably cathartic and satisfying for Smith. As famous through the broadcast, and highlighted by Smith this offseason, his exit from Inexperienced Bay wasn’t terribly nice and left such a bitter style in his mouth that he sought out signing with the Vikings as means for revenge.
Smith detailed his therapy by the Packers final season with a disdain that left him wanting revenge:
“I used to be like, ‘Rattling, why am I being handled like this,” Smith stated of how he was seen after lacking time because of his again harm. “I introduced the tradition. I helped change this s—. Why the f— am I the one being handled like that?’
Strolling previous me not saying nothing. ‘Z, how’s your again doing?’ There was none of that. As you’ll be able to see, that provides on to why I’m on the opposite aspect. So, I can return. I get to return two instances a 12 months.”
Not solely did he get his revenge on the block, however the Vikings completely obliterated the Packers for many of Week 1’s showdown.
