First of all, don’t jump down my throat. Every single time I remotely mention the fact that I don’t watch Game of Thrones and have negative desire to is baffling. I just don’t care about dragons and whatever else happens in that show. Ireland is cool as hell though so I mean, I guess that part’s kind of chill but whatever. I basically know what’s going on when I open Twitter on a Sunday night. Half of the world hates this final season and half of the world doesn’t. Somebody made some sweet love to somebody else and a someone rode a dragon. And there’s a person named Mountain. I think I’ve covered the bases here.
But back to the main point of this blog about football and Game of Thrones, the second-best quarterback in the NFL, Aaron Rodgers, died a fiery death in one of the most popular TV shows in history last night.

This is a live look at Twitter whenever one of these insane NFL “analysts” try to say Aaron Rodgers is better than Tom Brady. The moment one of them drops that take, Twitter will tear you to the ground like that, I think, castle last night. If you didn’t watch the show, sorry, I guess. I think a castle collapsed to the ground.
Look, I’ve conceded a million times now that Aaron Rodgers might be more athletically gifted. And when I say that he “might” be, I mean that he is. But to say that Aaron Rodgers is a better quarterback than Tom Brady is like saying cats are better than dogs. You and I both know which one’s superior and it isn’t close.
Quite frankly, if this was Tom Brady, he probably takes over the “kingdom?”. Whatever’s there for the taking, it’s his. He doesn’t die in such a fashion. Blasphemous to think otherwise. Game of Thrones couldn’t put Tom in here because he’d be too dominant.
If Aaron Rodgers was moving better in the pocket, does he avoid such a death? Does he die by the hands of fire? I guess at this point, we’ll never know. But his fire awareness level on Madden just dropped by a minimum of 20 points.
So I guess that’s it. I didn’t mean for this blog to turn into a Tom Brady tongue bath but we’re here now so, I guess we’ll have to live with it.
