    I don't know. I know Eli did. And without him, they don't win it...

    Rodgers would have scrabbled for 60 yards instead of hanging back. :happy0005:

    My thoughts exactly. I heard the same story. Rodgers appears to have the same work ethic as Brady and he has better physical tools. His accuracy is second to none and he has a strong arm. When McCarthy was coaching the Pro Bowl a few years ago before Rodgers was starting, both he and Thompson believed Rodgers was as good as the Pro Bowl QBs at that time. They were right.

    I actually believe the top 4 receivers aren't as great as they are cracked up to be. Favre and now Rodgers are making them look better than they are - much like the credit Freeman got when he worked with Favre.

    The Packer future is very bright. I believe Rodgers will be one of the top 2 or 3 QBs in the NFL next year. I also believe the OL and defense will be improved and look for the Packers to go 11-5 or so, even with a much more difficult schedule than in 2009.

    I laugh every time I read a report that said Rodgers wasn't very mobile and that Alex Smith was the "athlete" of the two...

    What a freaking joke.

    Rodgers reminds me A LOT of Steve Young.

    I think that was his idol growing up. But I agree completely. They are so much alike as QBs.

    Not too bad.

    Hopefully, this Rodgers story is about 15 chapters deep, and we are just in chapter 3.

    You guys have no idea how badly I want him to win 2 Super Bowls (one more than Favray).
    Brady won 3. Aikman won 3. I don't honestly think they are/were better passers than Rodgers is. But Aaron, and the TEAM, need to come up clutch in the playoffs.
