Aaron Rodgers vs Giants at Lambeau
26 completions out of 46 attempts for %56.5 and 264 yards with 2 TD's and 1 INT while being sacked 4 times. I think the Packers had something like six drops too. Ugh. Drops.

I suppose its 'turd' if you compare to his previous 15 starts, lol. The INT was late in the game when it was already over, right?


Side Point... catching and tackling ... two of the three most important tasks in football and yet it seems they are lacking widespread in the NFL. Sad.

I think 7 drops. And yes, Aaron Rodgers would have had a significantly higher passer rating had his receivers actually CAUGHT THE FREAKING BALL. But goes to show, it's a team sport.

Anyways, we agree on my original point - I could care less about 4th Q comebacks. I'd rather have a TEAM that blows away opponents and doesn't leave games to either the Kicker or the refs.

Peyton is better in regular season. Eli is way better in post-season. Brett Favre has a better record than Peyton in post-season because Favre can carry a team on his back (or lose a game all by himself). Peyton can't do that.

I recall the 2006 AFC Championship relying on Peyton's shoulders. I also recall several performances against the Broncos and Chiefs in which he had to put up monster numbers. He tore the Jets defense apart in the 2009 AFC Championship. They're plenty of examples of Peyton carrying a team on his back. Is he the best QB ever? I don't think so, but he's one of the best ever, and that's pretty telling.

I've always looked at Peyton and Eli as their father's "revenge" on the NFL. Archie was a great QB, but he was stuck on a team that was never going to go anywhere.

Partially for this reason, I think Peyton wants it just a little too badly. I think he has a tendency to overprepare and thus, psych himself out.

Several of the best QBs ever are still in the NFL - our Aaron Rodgers, Drew Brees, Tom Brady, and Peyton Manning. But Manning's had a very long career and only one ring. If Aaron Rodgers plays as long as Manning and only produces one ring, he'd be a letdown.

It sure isn't any shocker that some of the all time best quarterbacks are still actively playing in this massively offensive rule driven league, now is it?

LET THEM PLAY!!

That's true. I sincerely doubt Tom Brady or everyone's favorite Peyton Manning would be as good if they played in the Bart Starr era.

Brett Favre would be the same. Ben Rothlisburger would be the same. Those two guys are the two toughest QBs today.

Brees would be the same because even Aaron Rodgers admits that Brees' work ethic is the top of the top.

for me, this quote from Rodgers is golden "I've had plenty of game-winning drives in the second and third quarters."

Personally, I could use less stress in the forth after an era of #4 in the wee hours of the morning, especially after the last 2 weeks of nail biters.

but to put it into perspective maybe, we saw the backup take the field and literally trip over himself at the goal line, I would personally like to see the D wrap up games and the Offense score +30 a game. That way I could relax and enjoy the game, but as a Packers fan for the last 30 years has taught me, that probably will never happen.

I think if Brett Favre started playing 10-12 years later, he'd be unanimously considered the best quarterback off all time. He took major risks and in this league now, those risks are heavily rewarded. My lord, can you imagine that?? I think 50 TD's would damn near be the norm for him, especially with pass happy McCarthy.
