    No surprise here.. but it is something other than the Favre drama.. made up or not.

    Aaron Rodgers, quarterback, Green Bay Packers
    Unless Brett Favre decides to do some scratching before late August, this guy shouldn't bother sitting down. While Brett continues to sit in Mississippi, his former understudy from Cal will remain under bitter scrutiny unless he's able to lead the Pack to victory in every game — and that's just maybe. Unfortunately, this year's schedule is no hayride. And even if Favre, whose $12 million price tag would require restructuring or the firing of current players, goes elsewhere (the moon?), Rodgers will be second in QB popularity...behind rookie Brian Brohm.

    And why would Brohm be more popular than Rodgers? I don't get it.

    If I'm not mistaken, the majority of Packer fans are rooting for Rodgers to succeed.

    I think he's playing on the cliche, inapplicable in Green Bay for a long time, that the most popular player is the backup QB.

    It is not a well-written passage.

    And don't we have something like $25 million in cap space? Why does everyone keep saying Favre coming back would require restructuring contracts or getting rid of other players? Regardless of whether you like TT, he has this team in a very good cap position.

    Ryan Grant is also kind of on the hotseat, but im pretty sure he'll do good, his hotseat pails in comparison to Rodgers'

    I pity poor Aaron Rodgers. Not only does it appear he could lose another chance to QB the team, but if he does QB as he wants, every mistake he makes, and every QB makes 'em, will be magnified 100x over. He will be pilloried unmercifully for every inc and int. His only chance to survive would be to win every game, and by a large margin. How many QBs can do that? Ws & Ls are determined by 53 players + the coaches. But only Rodgers will get blamed. Life can be terribly unfair.

    If he wasn't a week ago, he certainly is now. If Rodgers is the Packers QB, no player or team for that matter will be under as much pressure too win now.
