Aaron Rodgers leaves bread crumbs with the media during his weekly appearances on “The Pat McAfee Show” and hinted Tuesday that he may attempt to kill the much-vaunted Manningcast curse in January.
Every current NFL player who has continued – Travis Kelce, Russell Wilson, Rob Gronkowski, Matthew Stafford, Tom Brady and Josh Allen – has seen his team lose their next game. It was a topic for McAfee and co-host AJ Hawk, a former Rodgers Packers teammate, to discuss Tuesday during Rodgers’ time on the show. Green Bay QB let it go.
“There’s a conversation about going over there in January,” Rodgers said.
Rodgers could be the first active NFL player to beat the curse. The next Manningcast is scheduled for Jan. 3, a Week 17 tilt between the Browns and the Steelers.
Opinions differ as to whether the “curse” is active or whether it has already been defeated. Warriors star Draymond Green appeared on the Manningcast a few weeks ago, and the Golden State beat the Nets in their next game.
Rodgers doesn’t seem to let the possibility of a live curse sway him, but if there is any impression that current football players have dodged the Manningcast for fear of an upcoming loss, a source with knowledge of the program says that this is incorrect.
“No one turned down the show because of the curse,” the source told The Post. “The show is booked well in advance.”
