I still find it interesting how people are lamenting Rodgers for not coming back and winning the game for the Packers in the final two minutes. It was a pretty much given that pulling a win out of his butt wasn't really Rodgers style of play and that he's more of a game manager.

Why does the lack of 2:00 minute winning drives surprise anyone? Heck, the Legend only has 12 in his ENTIRE career and we're gonna bash a first year starter for not doing something hardly any ever expected him to do in the first place?

Rodgers woulda won multiple close games if the defense didn't collapse multiple times in the 4th this season.

But lets blame Rodgers

I still don't understand why every time someone says anything even remotely negative about Rodgers it turns into a "why are you blaming him for all our losses" conversation.

Just because there are a few people that do that doesn't mean that that is everyone else's opinion.

All I think some people are saying is that he hasn't had that signature drive. Which he hasn't. It will come with experience I would assume but so far he hasn't. I don't think anyone is saying that the defense is awesome, etc. I think all some people are saying is he hasn't had "that" drive yet, which right now has cost them a few games.

Which I'm sorry but its the NFL. Your the QB, you get paid the most on the team, you get all the glory when you win. And guess what, you get criticized way more than anyone else, its life. It was a losing team effort in the NFC title game but rightly or wrongly Favre gets all the blame by so many people. Thats life in the NFL as a QB. People expect you regardless of your year (rightly or wrongly) to win the game when you have the game in your hands (even though there are so many other factors like playcalling or receivers catching or dropping balls, etc).

No need to damn him with faint praise, Zero. He is much more than a "game manager." The 63-yard bomb to Jennings last week is the latest example of that. Rodgers has a strong arm with pretty good accuracy downfield, and yes, he will take chances at times. I wish he had taken more of a game manager approach on that final possession against the Panthers rather than lofting up such a high-risk pass right away.
