Things Rodgers can do at home, and not at Century Link Dan Leberfeld

Last week, Green Bay Packers QB Aaron Rodgers had a rough time playing in perhaps the toughest road environment in the league, against the Seattle Seahawks, at Century Link Stadium.

This week against the Jets, he will be at home, at the friendly confines of Lambeau Field.

What are some of the things he will be able to do at home, that he couldn’t do at Century Link?

“The most obvious one would be the cadence,” said Jets coach Rex Ryan. “He can use his cadence and verbal communication. I think that’s the number one thing. Out there (at CenturyLink Field) it’s like, you’ve got to go on silent count, everybody in the ballpark knows it, so it’s easier to get off (the) football on defense.

“And when you’re on the road, it’s much more difficult. Obviously, here’s a veteran quarterback that knows how to use his cadence to his advantage. Shifts, motion, identifying defenses and things like that. He’s able to audible. It’s different. He actually calls his plays. They want to snap the ball quick and they put the game into his hands.”

So Rodgers at home obviously presents a huge challenge for the Jets’ defense.
