    Obviously we don't want J.J. Watt or Von Miller having an easy shot at Rodgers, but just an average DT, and the rest of the line could focus their efforts on the other pass rushers.

    Think about it: Rodgers' best plays come when he is under duress. He makes throws with ease that other QBs only dream of. The plays when there is "miscommunication" are when he has good protection. Maybe he gets bored, over-analyzes things, or expects too much from his receivers. But when he's being chased, he looks the most comfortable.

    We could have a Detroit or Arizona Hail Mary every play.

    That video sums up anything that needs to be said about this idea.

    If it's something like a screen play, or a guard pulling etc, maybe you let him go the long way around. But if your asking just in general, you probably don't want that happening.

    Or just have Rodgers play with his left hand tied behind his back!

    I get what the OP is thinking, but I agree with everybody else. We don't wanna get our QB killed on purpose.

    While Rodgers makes some unbelieveable plays when under pressure don't fool yourself that he's better in those situations (no quarterback in the NFL is).

    Here's an in depth analysis about quarterback performance with or without pressure in 2015:
