    The entire offseason, Aaron Rodgers' performance in relief of Brett Favre at Dallas last year was talked about as the game that gave teammates, fans, and even Rodgers himself the confidence he was ready to take over as the Packers' starting quarterback.

    So now that Rodgers is preparing to take on the Cowboys again this week, what does his 18-for-26, 201-yard, one-touchdown, no-interception performance last Nov. 29 mean?

    "Not much," Rodgers said, point-blank. "That was last year. We've moved on. Like their media says, they didn't get to game plan for me. So now they have a whole week to game plan. It's going to be a great opportunity for us. It's a tough challenge."

    The fact that the Cowboys are the only opponent the Packers face this season that already has film of Rodgers playing against them in a meaningful setting does work to their advantage somewhat. But the familiarity cuts both ways.

    Rodgers isn't living off last year's game, he's built on it. There shouldn't be any lingering doubt anymore about whether that game was a fluke or an indication of the quarterback confidence and competence of Rodgers. He's been playing the same way since.
    I've never bought that bull that Rodgers did well only because the Cowboys weren't ready for him. They got like 5 sacks on him so they were bringing the heat just fine. They just couldn't stop him. They beat Favre 27-10 and Rodgers beat them 17-10.

    Dallas won't be spotted a 17 pt. lead before Rodgers gets in the game this year.

    In the NFL, there are the Superbowl Champions, followed by everyone else who lost.

    You must be one of the biggest unintelligent Cowboys fans I've ever come across and trust me I grew up around you guys and I had my fair share of them.
