First of all, Cowherd was saying "pom-pom wavers," not "pom-pom waivers." Huge difference in meaning. 😂
Secondly, I agree with almost every word he says. The contrasts he draws between Rodgers' and Russell Wilson's handling of their teammates are spot on. Screw Rodgers' precious need to "trust" his receivers. He is a a professional. He is making eight figures a year to work with the teammates he's given, most of whom are making orders of magnitude less than he is. If he's not willing to use the tools at his disposal, he needs to pack his bags and find another profession better suited to his supercilious demeanor, because he's not worth the money he's making.
Is Rodgers to blame for all of the team's problems? Of course not! But he does bear responsibility for his chronic technique lapses and all-too-frequent psychological hangups, and he needs to make it a priority to work on them if he genuinely aspires to Brady's longevity in this league. In short, he needs to adapt to changing realities. We saw some promising signs this season that he was beginning to get it, but they were isolated moments, and there weren't enough of them. He needs to start stringing those moments together not just for entire games, but for multiple games in a row.
I think the 2020 season is the prove-it year for Rodgers. If he can't demonstrate that he's fully on the train with the new system and the powers that be, I think Gutekunst will start setting the wheels in motion for ushering him out.
