Some of you guys make me laugh saying Aaron shouldn't have extended the 2 plays he got hurt on. You play every play hard because otherwise you get hurt. And Aaron knows no other way.

Agree. If you say he shouldn’t have extended those played be the got hurt, then he shouldn’t have extended any play because he could have gotten hurt. He’s made far more good from scrambling than bad. 

Its football, guys get hurt.

This.  I wonder if people had issues with his last throw in the Dallas playoff game in 2016 to Jarod Cook .  Or his last throw in the season finale against Chicago in 2013 to Randall Cobb.  Extending plays is one of the reasons Aaron Rodgers is one of the most special talents ever to play in the NFL.  You've got to take the good with the bad and there is far more good.

I don't have a problem with him extending plays, I just wish the Packers could develop an offense that doesn't require it so often.

WR's getting separation without going schoolyard and a healthy OL that can protect a bit better would help preserve our QB health.

Situational awareness.

I dont really have a horse in this race but there's a pretty big difference between those situations and when he got hurt extending plays. 

A 4th down with the playoffs on the line and 10 seconds left in a tied playoff game are times you extend the play at any risk. No one is going to argue that. A random second down play and a third down play in field goal range in September not so much.

There's 1000+ snaps in a year. You don't have to put yourself at risk to win every one. That seems to be a reasonable stance to me.

Also keep in mind his scrambling ability helps the pass rush too.  How many teams run a contain rush on us to try and keep him in the pocket instead of a typical rush or using their LBs as spies instead of in coverage or rushing.  Pocket QBs take a lot of hits too and I think Rodgers typically does a pretty good job of avoiding hits when he gets out of the pocket via scrambling OOB or sliding.
