Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers will appear on the Manningcast in Week 17, which could put Green Bay fans on alert for some bad luck.
The Week 17 edition of the Manningcast will include a lineup of great guests including former Steelers head coach Bill Cowher, NFL commissioner Rodger Goodell and Snoop Dogg.
Those three would be entertaining enough but the Manning brothers, Peyton and Eli, will also have Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers on to entertain the fans.
The thing is, Packer fans might not be too enthusiastic about this particular appearance.
Aaron Rodgers on the Manningcast will cause Packers anxiety
For starters, Rodgers has a bad habit of making headlines when he gets in front of a camera. Controversy hasn’t been far away from the quarterback this year.
Something even more concerning than some cringe quote from Rodgers looms though.
Like the Madden curse before it, the Manningcast curse is a thing.
Early in the season, a run of active players who appeared on the show suffered losses the following week. Players have seemed to avoid the show since the idea of the curse gained steam.
Rodgers is going to brave the curse, which means Green Bay fans may be on high alert when the team finishes out the regular season against the Lions in Week 18.
The Packers will take on the Vikings on Sunday Night Football and their pursuit of the No. 1 seed in the NFC could come down to the final week. The Cowboys, Rams and Buccaneers are all waiting in the wings to pounce if Green Bay slips up.
