Ben Roethlisberger isn’t the only quarterback in the NFL happy about the new look of his defense. Green Bay Packers star Aaron Rodgers has noticed a more physical presence from the Packers teammates.
“I think we’re a bigger, more physically intimidating team,” Rodgers told ESPN.com. “We haven’t had the kind of physical talent as far as size here in a while. I think there’s been times — I think back to playing Jacksonville in ’08 in Jacksonville (a 20-16 Packers‘ loss), some of the battles we’ve had with our division teams at times — where you walk on the field and feel like you’re kind of a JV team.
“We’ve still won a lot of games looking like that, but it’s fun when you walk around the locker room and you’ve got guys like (Julius) Peppers, (Adrian) Hubbard,Datone Jones and then with Derek (Sherrod) back with his size, adding size at receiver, tight end with Richard Rodgers. We just haven’t had guys in some of these positions with those body types, and that’s exciting.”
It sounds like everyone is following the Seahawks blueprint.
