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.”
