Draft Scout *DeShone Kizer News
09/13/18 - QB DeShone Kizer fumbled and threw a pick-six interception in two series in relief of Rodgers against Chicago. "You can't play quarterback, period, if you don't take care of the football," coach Mike McCarthy said. "If you look at our history here as far as turnover ratio, the amount of time and the energy that (goes) into taking care of the football, it's been a real strength. And it's a tremendous strength of Aaron Rodgers and how he plays the position. DeShone definitely needs to learn from those two plays. You have to take care of the football. If you don't take care of the football, you're not long for playing with the Green Bay Packers. That's an absolute. I think every coach in the league would express that. It's not to be taken in any negative way. It's just the facts of the matter. You have to give your team a chance."
