Aaron Rodgers nearly appeared impressed when he obtained the prospect to satisfy the “Voice of God,” Liev Schreiber, on the primary episode of the brand new Hard Knocks collection.
The collection, which this 12 months follows the New York Jets as they enter a brand new period with Rodgers on the helm, started Tuesday night time.
The opening episode revolves across the arrival of the 39-year-old quarterback of the Green Bay Packers. But the true star of the present — not less than in Rodgers’ eyes — is the present’s iconic narrator, Schreiber.
Toward the beginning of Tuesday’s episode, Rodgers was requested in regards to the prospect of his squad’s preparations for the season being caught on digicam.
“One of the few things I like about Hard Knocks is the Voice of God, which tells it,” he stated. “I hope I get to meet him.”

Then, midway by a coaching session in New York, a helicopter seems overhead. Rodgers speculates it could possibly be Schreiber and his want was granted when the actor stepped out of the helicopter.
Schreiber introduces himself to Rodgers, who takes off his helmet and says, “Nice to meet you…I’ve always been a fan of yours.”
The quarterback provides, “There are a lot of your movies that I love… it’s great to see you.”
Schreiber replies, “I’m glad you’re here, man…you’ve made a lot of New Yorkers very happy.” To which Rodgers responds, “Me too… I’m having a great time.
The quarterback then tries to convince his Jets teammates and staff to meet the narrator. ‘It’s the voice of God! Didn’t you say hello? Go say hello!’ he says, before telling offensive coordinator Nathaniel Hackett, “Don’t be an asshole … he’s nervous, he wants to meet people.”
Later within the episode, the cameras captured a heartwarming trade between 39-year-old Rodgers and 22-year-old cornerback Sauce Gardner.

“One day you’ll be here,” Rodgers tells his youthful teammate. ‘I’ll be actually previous and grey’
The pair have been chatting on the sphere forward of the Jet’s preseason recreation towards the Cleveland Browns within the Hall of Fame Game.
“One day you’ll be here,” Rodgers tells his teammate. “When that happens, I’ll be very old and gray.”
Gardner replies, “Hey man, that’s the plan…my mom always told me to stay a kid as long as possible.
“And it’s like, if I’m actually going to do this little brother, I’m going to get older. Because I have ambitions to play in the league for 40 years.’
Rodgers nods as he replies, “It’s going to take a long time.”
