Aaron Rodgers’ admission of Dak Prescott being one of his ‘favorite quarterbacks to watch’ in NFL draws hilarious reactions from fans

The New York Jets find themselves at a crucial juncture in their Super Bowl aspirations for the current season, with Aaron Rodgers passing the torch to rookie Zach Wilson in a debut game that held high expectations. Despite a promising three-game winning streak, the Jets have faced setbacks since Week 9, while Rodgers aims to regain momentum for a playoff run.

In the midst of Jets’ head coach Robert Saleh questioning trust in Wilson, Rodgers has expressed hope in Dallas Cowboys hero Dak Prescott. Nevertheless, this time, despite his support, the former Green Bay Packers player faces challenges in winning the hearts of his fans.

 Aaron Rodgers hails Dak Prescott

Dallas Cowboys quarterback Dak Prescott, despite not always receiving unanimous acceptance from fans, has found support in unexpected quarters. Notably, future Hall of Famer Aaron Rodgers has emerged as a vocal admirer of Prescott’s on-field prowess. The endorsement comes at a time when Rodgers is taking a step back from active play due to a season-ending injury, affording him the opportunity to closely observe the performances of other players.

In a recent appearance on the Pat McAfee show, Rodgers expressed his admiration for Prescott, particularly highlighting the Cowboys’ dominant Thanksgiving win over the Washington Commanders. The 39-year-old quarterback did not mince words in labeling Prescott as one of his “favorite quarterbacks to watch” this season, who edged out him already in maiden QB ratings.

“Dak Prescott has become one of my favorite quarterbacks to watch,” he said.

Rodgers, in his 18-year career, is experiencing a different side of the game as he takes on a spectator role due to his injury. This unique perspective has allowed him to delve into watching more football than ever before, gaining a deeper understanding of the nuances of the game.

“I’ve watched more football this year than any other year, because in normal years, you’re getting ready for games, you’re never watching football. You might see some scores on your phone, every now and then, see a Sunday night game, and you might get part of Monday or Thursday, but you’re just not watching a lot of games. But this year I’ve watched a lot more games than usual.”

While the Cowboys’ Super Bowl fate remains uncertain with an 8-3 record, the team’s recent performances have been nothing short of impressive. Over the last three weeks, they have outscored opponents by a remarkable 90 points, with Prescott playing a central role in the offensive success, as per Fox Sports. Denzel Washington has already crowned Prescott as the show’s winner, emphasizing the quarterback’s pivotal contribution to the team’s success.

Prescott’s individual statistics for the season further underscore his impact, with 2,935 passing yards, 23 touchdowns, and six interceptions.

 Fans mock Aaron Rodgers for parsing Dak Prescott

Aaron Rodgers’ acknowledgment of Prescott as one of his favorite players to watch has sparked playful banter and teasing among some NFL enthusiasts. 

“Why because he’s producing great numbers against some of the worst teams in the league this yr,” one netizen’s harsh taunt for the Jet’s superstar, labeling Prescott as the winner over the average or worst playing team.

Netizens did not shield away, citing Aaron Rodgers’s remarks as “lies” while mentioning Prescott as “Dak,” as they see no potential in the Cowboys starter.

“Lies ! He’s the least intimidating, least likely to win , and not a real threat ,. so that’s why he said  Dak. Everyone  with eyes knows that Patrick Mahomes is the best . Jalen Hurts  is your close 2nd . End of story.”

In the world of sports fandom, expressing support for a player from another team can stir up frustration among fans. Unfortunately, this dynamic often leads to criticism directed at the supporting player. 

In the case of Aaron Rodgers endorsing Dak Prescott, fans’ reactions escalated to the point where Rodgers faced backlash, with some even labeling the four-time MVP as an “overrated” quarterback in the league.

“2 overrated QBs,” one comment read.
