Jon Gruden: 'Obviously, Khalil Mack didn't want to play here'

Jon Gruden: 'Obviously, Khalil Mack didn't want to play here'

The Packers were down by 17 points entering the fourth and final frame, and Rodgers simply took over. It was time to slam the panic button at Lambeau Field.

Packers quarterback Rodgers, who signed the richest contract in National Football League history just before the start of the season, left the game in the second quarter as the Bears dominated to lead 17-0 at half-time. The Packers are 95-48 in regular season games he has started.

The last time Rodgers left the field on a cart, no good news came from it. A stance that Mack has backed up over and over again on the field.

He's the Packers' No. 3 quarterback, and Boyle wasn't just planning to wear the jersey around the locker room.

Even if Rodgers plays, there's a good chance Boyle will be active just in case. I was walking up and down the sideline trying to keep it loose. There was no shortage of drama as the Packers overturned a 20-0 deficit to beat the Chicago Bears and start the season 1-0.

Gruden said last week the Raiders weren't close to the contract offer Chicago gave the All-Pro defender, and insisted he's only focused on the players now on his roster. "And I want players that want to be here, that want to help us put this thing back in high gear". A three-time Pro Bowler and 2016 Defensive Player of the Year who logged almost 90 percent of Oakland's defensive snaps and never missed a start in four seasons, he felt he had nothing left to prove, hence the holdout. The Chicago Bears were one sack away from installing a Khalil Mack statue at Soldier Field after one game.

With limited mobility, Rodgers operated a no-huddle offense in the second half that kept him in the pocket. For what feels like the 100 time in his career, happy Aaron Rodgers Appreciation Day!

But after the break, the two teams switched roles and Rodgers did what only a player of his caliber can do. Trubisky completed 4 of 4 passes for 54 yards on the drive. He also ran for 32 yards on seven carries, including a 2-yard touchdown run in the first quarter. After two first downs, Rodgers had eclipsed his total first-half stats.
