Underrated part of Aaron Rodgers game

The Jets’ new QB Aaron Rodgers, acquired in a trade on Monday from the Green Bay Packers, is obviously an elite QB.

His accomplishments while with the Packers include being a 4-time NFL MVP and a 10-time Pro Bowler.

His arm talent, accuracy and ability to read defenses are well-documented, but something else that makes him special isn’t talked about enough.

An underrated aspect of Rodgers is how good he is at getting defenders to jump off-sides with his cadence while barking out plays. Former NFL DE Ryan Kerrigan called Rodgers, “The king of the hard count.” According to a story in “The Packer News,” Rodgers hard counted on about 20 percent of Green Bay’s play. He also has an impressive history of taking advantage of “free plays” that still go off after the flag is thrown.
