"They wouldn't show it because I play for the #Packers... But I had a pretty sweet no looker to Davante on the last drive that I had kinda set up for a few plays" @AaronRodgers12 on the no look pass & some high praise for #Lions QB Matthew Stafford #PatMcAfeeShowLIVE https://t.co/MDpKDyROOK
Rodgers was having a conversation with ex-Indianapolis Colts punter Pat McAfee and ex-Packers teammate and linebacker A.J. Hawk about his no-look pass to wideout Davante Adams last Sunday before praising Stafford for making those types of throws routinely (around 35-second mark):
"I must say this. You know, a guy who probably doesn't get anywhere near the credit for doing s--t like that all the time, he wears No. 9 and plays in Detroit.
"That dude, what he does with the ball, it's impressive. It's really, really impressive.
"I know [current ESPN analyst and ex-Lions backup quarterback] Dan Orlovsky will highlight some stuff from time to time, sure, because they played together and they're good friends, which he should, but that dude is throwing crazy no-lookers all the time, like, and he can throw from any arm angle."
Stafford's no-look passes garnered a little attention last year, with Brandon Thorn of Establish the Run pointing out a few clips on Twitter.
As Rodgers alluded to Tuesday, part of the reason Stafford doesn't get as much attention could be the state of the Lions. After a losing season in 2018, the team went 3-12-1 last year as Stafford only played eight games.
Stafford's 2020 Lions are 4-6 but not out of the NFC playoff picture just yet. They'll host the Houston Texans at Ford Field on Thanksgiving Day on CBS.
