Q.B. Rating for the first half in the Denver Game for this 24 year old kid....

123.24

A NFL QB Rating of 123.24


This is great, but for the love of God, WHY THE HELL do people insist on calling him by a thug nickname like "A-Rod?" That nickname is already used TWICE in sports by Alex Rodriguez and Andy Roddick. Is there no originality anymore? Is "Aaron Rodgers" or "Rodgers" that hard to spell? The whole "First initial, first syllable of last name nickname" thing is stupid anyway as it comes straight out of gang sub-culture.

How about from now on we go with B-Favre, D-Don, G-Jen, N-Barn, and B-Pop?


Didn't you know this website is a message board for the Bloods who happen to be Packer fans? We might have a problem here, GREEN Blood.

B-ozz, out.

(Good one Greg!!!!) :thumbright:
Anyway......i saw the 1st through 3rd quarters.
Rodgers looked great. I can't wait till we have Grant in there with him. B-Jack (sorry......couldn't resist!) had his moments. He looks VERY powerful. The yards he made seemed to be mostly on his own.
But our D? They looked BAD! (Sorry R.P.!) Of course it IS preseason, so i'm not too worried....yet.

It is pre season so the positives and negatives right now will soon be forgotten and rightfully so but....

I think calling Al Harris awful in pre season is a huge stretch. He's one of the best man to man coverage guys in the game today. I recall one long play where he got beat by Brandon Marshall. It's not like Harris isn't going to give up any plays this season. Same goes for Woodson. I'll take Al Harris over any other corner in the division not named Charles Woodson.

Now depth is a bit of a concern but Tramon Williams played well outside of when he was covering Brandon Marshall. Brandon Marshall is the best receiver in that division in my opinion. You would expect Marshall to beat Williams one on one all day long. So when Williams played that #3 receiver. He did well. When he played the #1, he struggled. That's about what I would expect.

I think the biggest concern is the defensive line. I agree with that. No pass rush at all this pre season. I have confidence in Kampman but he can't do everything. Denver also ran all over the Packers. Over 90 yards rushing in the 1st half. You can't have that.


Ok, let me explain. I liked Rogers last night. He played quicker, actually looked off some receivers, ran the offense well and I thought if he can play like that we'll be fine. His backups are young and inexperienced. I didn't say they didn't have talent. I said they're not ready for prime time. That too was very clear.

As for Al Harris, man he was no where to be found in coverage last night. Maybe he's just trying to stay away from injury, but he wasn't close to anyone who caught a ball last night. After his last game vs. the Giants I worry whether he hasn't suddenly fallen off that great list. I felt the same way about Blackman and Bush. You cannot play five yards off a receiver and expect to make a play. Those three played a significant role in not being able to get off the field in 3rd and long situations.

They simply have to get some of those injured players well and back playing. Our defensive line looks awful. Denver ran through us like we weren't even there. j

Again, I'm only saying what I saw. But remember this was a team that was 13-3 and they don't resemble anything like that. Other than the QB's we're not talking rookies, we're talking veterans who are having a bad camp. I trust Mike will fix that, but I am simply concerned.

How about we call him "Roy" and when he makes a good throw we can say he pulled the "Trigger"?

How about, we call him "Mustache Malone", and when he's playing well, we say, "Man! Mustache Malone is really greasing it up tonight!"

Didn't see the game last night but the offense sounded like it did very well. Problem was the rush defense. I heard that Selven Young avg 7.0 ypc and hall was at like 6.0. Not good, Pickett better get healthy quick. If the Packers can't stop the run, then we are in trouble.

For those with NFL Network, they are re-airing the game Monday morning 2AM, I'm DVRing it to see how the defense played. I saw the highlights on ESPN and the brandon Marshall TD was good coverage by williams (I think it was him)

I'll see how they played once I watched it.
Thank You 2005 White Sox!

the play previous to the Marshall TD was the exact same play, exact same throw to Marshall, and Williams intercepted the ball... but they called interference on him. it's just like someone said earlier, (Zombie?) when marshall matched up against our #3 CB, he looked good. big surprise.

Yeah, like you said, at least be original. +1

You want to finish your career here?

B-Pop ain't bad. :icon_smile:
But seriously, the A-Rod thing needs to go. That's why I propose we call him A-dere-Rod (Ey 'dere!) from now on.

I'm with you on Brohm and maybe Flynn, but I'm not worried about Al Harris. He usually sucks in the preseason.

Tramon Williams had some rough moments at CB, but he was put on an island with a very talented WR, and he was right with the guy, but just didn't quite get it done. I think he will be a good nickel back, though he doesn't quite look ready to start if Harris or Woodson goes down.


Tramon isn't the one that will be put up with the very talented wide receivers. Thats why we pay AL harris and Woodson so much money. I agree he will be a very good nickel CB, but some trouble if Haris or woodson would go down.

I like Tramon. He just happened to get burned twice by a very talented WR in man-on-man coverage. It happens to the best of them. He has really developed his skillset and is a pretty complete CB now though.

I also hate the nickname A-Rod. Why would you call our QB by a name that two other current athletes use?

A-Rodge is a bit better. Maybe a new nickname will occur to us after we see him playing in regular season games.

Air Rodgers? That's also a ripoff, though. Heir Rodgers? Old Mutton Chops?

Hopefully not Errin' Rodgers. ;)
