Aaron has been captioned many things...

He was called cocky after his post draft remarks. He was called arrogant in his first camp in Green Bay. He has been called a cancer survivor hater, a player who can not generate a 4th quarter come back drive.

However the one label that always made me smile is that "He is a stat whore."

I think he put that label to bed yesterday.

The announcers in the game yesterday made me laugh when they stated: "Rodgers wants every Packer record and I am sure it irks him that Matt Flynn has the Packers record of 480 yards passing in a game."

REALLY?

Aaron had every opportunity to break it. But he did not. He ran the clock out.

I.M.H.O. The fella is just remarkable, and he has shot down every label the press and haters have put on him.

Rogers is special. He is so far above the critics and haters he is untouchable.

My impression is that he only cares about looking better/coming off better than Favre:-k

The only stat Aaron wants is how many championships can he get while he plays. Let people sort the others out after he retires.

Hard to have a lot of 4th quarter come backs when you are playing prevent D in the 4th.

Or he just wasn't tallying up the yards in his head because he had better things to think about, which tells you something.

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.

I'm sure Aaron Rodgers would like all records, except the interception record. That being said, Rodgers won't jeopardize the season's goal for a franchise record, nor would Mike McCarthy.

I think it's important fans know and understand this.

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.
