Rodgers chasing Manning

Aaron Rodgers is following in Peyton Manning’s footsteps on the field, but also off:

A third version of Rodgers’ “Discount Double-Take” commercials will appear this weekend. Formally known as “State of Imitation,” the ads feature Rodgers as the straight man, first against actors and then Packers defensive lineman B.J. Raji. The latest version, embedded below, includes linebacker Clay Matthews.

“That being said, being compared to Peyton, that’s a high compliment because I think he’s hilarious and I think his ads have been incredible. ‘Saturday Night Live,’ which has shown some interest in me doing it, his performance was incredible I thought on ‘Saturday Night Live.’ Tough to match.”

About Todd Smith

Todd Smith is a part-time sportswriter who spends too much time arguing on Twitter. What he really loves is eating poorly and watching football. He got his first Colts t-shirt in 1984 shortly after the Mayflower trucks arrived and has never given up on his hometown team. He also still holds to the belief that Kordell Stewart stepped out of the end zone and thus cheated the Colts.
