I guess I should clarify that I don't think he chases records at the expense of winning or anything. Just that he seems very aware of how he is perceived by the fans. Like the whole reconciliation attempts between him, the franchise and Favre. Rodgers knows full well if he were continue to try crap over Favre the fans would turn on him the minute his play started to decline. Hence he's the one most vocal one in support of getting Favre's number retired.


I just see him as the kind of guy who would crap all over Favre. The fans would only turn on him if he was a jerk. He is not. His support of Brett's jersey being retired has nothing to do with him. He knows what it means to the history of the franchise to do so and he is in support of it.

Agreed. He's let Lynn Dickey's records stand too in the past.

But when he's had the chance to exceed Favre, he goes for it.


When has he gone out of his way to break a Favre record and when has he "let" someone elses recrod stand? I can't think of any examples.

“If (the record) comes in the flow of the game, awesome,” Rodgers said on his weekly radio show. “If not, you get to the 2-minute warning, James had a great run for a first down, and you kneel on it three times. That’s what you do.”

http://espn.go.com/blog/...-on-his-record-tying-day





http://www.620wtmj.com/s...-the-line-224104831.html


"Bakhtiari, Sitton, Dietrich-Smith, Lang and Barclay are a balance of experience and youth.

A lot of youth.

The very young twin B's are also twin offensive tackles, and they've had to face some of the toughest pass rushers in the game - guys like Aldon Smith and Ryan Kerrigan.

Aaron Rodgers has been slammed to the turf six times with the football in his hands - a pace of 48 sacks, slightly below his 2012 total, but still not the desired level of protection.

How do you solve that? Take the pressure off arguably the game's best player.

You can do that in many ways, the most obvious being solid pass protection.

But there's also getting the running backs involved with the running game and through screens, but especially with the ground game.

Notice something about what happened after James Starks got lathered up in the Washington win.

What did he do? Gain 132 yards, 130 after his first series on the field.

What did the Washington pass rush do after Starks's first series? Produce just one sack the rest of the game, and none until the score was 31-0.

(They'd sacked Rodgers three times beforehand, including Starks' first series.)

Certainly, lots of credit should come to Starks for that dominance.

But so much of it also belongs to the offensive line that turned Washington to mush.

Bakhtiari, Sitton, Dietrich-Smith, Lang and Barclay did the blue-collar dirty work that let the Packers have a record-setting day.

If they do their job all season long, just think of what the Packers' offense could do.

It is not out of the question to have five Packers players gain 1,000 yards from scrimmage this year."



Both excerpts from stories posted in newsfeed, didn't see any reason to start new thread.

Don't you think you need a little bit larger body of work than the Redskin game to make these claims? I do think our tackles are playing pretty well for their small amount of experience and talent they've gone up against. I'd love for you to be right Buckeye, but I'm far from convinced yet.

I agree. I am not fully convinced either, but it is encouraging. In theory these guys should improve as the season progresses. Although some people feel that the line is just a bunch of guys pushing each other, it is a tough job and I feel they are just as important as any other part of the team.

Back to the main topic - Rodgers has handled the pressure of following Favre very well to the point that the controversy is only afterthought to many of us. He has snuffed out all the BS labels he has been slapped with and done without negative remarks or anger. Here's to you Aaron for keeping it classyCheers!

Love that article, but the sudden disappearance of the Redskins pass rush, I think, was more a result of Starks' success than getting beaten down by our rookies. You can't pin your ears back and go after the QB when he has a running back capable of getting past the line of scrimmage.
