    Starr's take on Rodgers---- and I thought he just kind of fell into a good situation.

    "He's sensational," Starr said Wednesday. "I wish I had a 10th of his talent. But the most important thing about him is the man he is. If you met him and looked in his eye, as we are doing now, you instantly like him. He's a class individual and a huge talent."

    As great a leader, QB, and teammate as Bart Starr was, IMO his greatest attribute is what kind of a man he is.
    Bart Starr = Pure Class.

    Best QB of all time. I'll take up the argument against anyone.

    Wow,...that is pretty cool!

    Bart was at the 2 fanfests that I got to attend, and was very nice ,not diva-ish at all.

    The first time he walked thru the hallway and a big hush went thru the crowd,... and a quite few people and circled around him.
    I couldn't see who it was at first , and some guy in front of me said.."Its BART FREAK'N STARR!"
    So Bart tells the crowd that he'd be more than happy to sign autographs, but he had to get to correct dept. in less than 5 minutes!.... I'd post the pic...but I was freaking out so much,..I only got his knees!!!:unsure:

    You and my dad think alike. He lives on the east coast but when we talk on the phone, I mention how great A-Rod is currently playing and he responds: "He's good, but he's no Bart Starr." :D

    Bart Starr was beyond excellent or elite in his day as an NFL QB. Much like Aaron is today.

    What I didn't know and was amazed to read was that he was drafted in the 17th ROUND!!! Damn... talk about being overlooked. Aaron has nothing to complain about! LOL
