After another dagger into the heart of Cowboys Nation, it’s clear Aaron Rodgers is a part-time owner of the Dallas Cowboys. Let’s discuss his dominance.
The football game ended the way it was suppose to end.
Admit it, the finale between the Dallas Cowboys and Green Bay Packers doesn’t come as a surprise. These heartbreaking endings seem normal. Sadly, the fans are conditioned to these kinds of let downs, and that is terrible.
Sadly, and it pains me to write this, but it feels like quarterback Aaron Rodgers has some stock options within the Dallas Cowboys organization.
Simply put, the 33-year-old saves his best masterpieces for the Boys. In a way, I think this is the football gods repaying the Cowboys back after the team dominated quarterback Brett Favre for years when he was with the Packers.
Now, it’s Rodgers turn to return the favor, and no matter the setting or stadium, this quarterback just wins.
Rodgers and the Cowboys have met nine times. He has a 4-3 record against Dallas in the regular season, and is a perfect 2-0 in the playoffs.
Of the nine meetings, Rodgers had four games of a quarterback rating of 100 or higher. He had another four games in the 90s range.
His worst contest against the Cowboys came in 2008, where he had no touchdowns or interceptions, losing the game with a final rating of 80.1.
And though Rodgers was sacked four times last Sunday, he was still able to shoot for a 65.5 completion percentage, three touchdown passes and final rating of 122.9.
Obviously, you can keep pinning this on the Cowboys’ defense. But if we’re being honest here, the numbers say that the year or stadium doesn’t matter — Rodgers dominates Big D.
Of the nine meetings, the Cowboys have only intercepted the QB twice. Including the playoffs, Rodgers has a 16 to two touchdown to interception ratio.
In the divisional match up last year, Rodgers tossed the Cowboys (who had the number one seed) aside 35-31. The future Hall of Famer came back nine months later to beat Dallas in similar fashion, 34-31.
Though the Dallas Cowboys revamped the defense with fresh faces, the recipe for Rodgers remained the same. The Packers gave the Cowboys some light, some hope, but in the end, the Cowboys defense did little to alter Rodgers’ master plan.
At the moment, the Cowboys are stained with dark green and gold colors. You might not like it, but the truth is the Packers and their franchise quarterback own the Cowboys.
But don’t thank me for the info. You can thank Aaron Rodgers for that.
