Aaron Rodgers cares about nothing else other than winning Super Bowls. Sure, other individual achievements may cross their mind here and there, but the desire to be a champion trumps everything else. It's not even close. To say otherwise is silly. I could care less if Rodgers never breaks any of Favre's records, so long as he wins a few more championships, and I'm sure he feels the same. Rodgers has said before that he wants to win a few championships, and likely retire. He knows that's what really matters and means the most in the long-run, regardless of anything Favre did or did not do. He's not in competition with Favre, he's in competition with current NFL teams. Would he like to break some of Favre's records? Sure. Who the hell wouldn't? What player wouldn't like to break any monumental NFL milestones. However, I can say with some certainly that most would trade multiple championships, especially as a key contributor, to individual success. Obviously the best of both worlds would be to do both, and we should all hope all Packer players do such things, as that would likely result in an elite team. If the Packers would truly a "stat padding" team, we would see a lot more running up the score like the Saints and Patriots do. The Packers rarely do that, much to the dismay of some Packer fans. Once they secure a win, they get fairly conservative and move forward.

What a silly argument Nerd continually tries to make. Dakota is right, he's entitled to his opinion, even if it's completely wrong and nonsensical.


Aaron Rodgers is slowly giving himself cancer, obsessing over every little slight he has ever perceived.

Anyone who starts at the QB position for more than 20 years is bound to put up numbers. I wouldn't be surprise if Aaron played for 20 years he'd be somewhere close to that but with less Interceptions and a ton more Lombardi's

Aaron Rodgers and Mike McCarthy are obsessed with topping Favres amount of Super bowl championships. Idiots... they need to grow up and focus on football.

I think it was a NFL Network interview where Rodgers said "you earn your pay-cheque in the regular season, and your legacy in the playoffs". I like that and I am glad that is how he views things as a Packer fan.

Aaron would not have said it with that darn English accent you just gave him.

It's not my place to question anyone's motivation, especially someone that is incredibly successful at something I could never do. It can't be easy to stay motivated to continually take a beating the way Rodgers does, especially now that he's already very rich. Whatever it takes to stay motivated, I say do it. I remember big John Henderson used to love to be slapped and hit before games to pump him up. James Hetfield (lead singer of Metallica, understandably kind of a lame example), used to or maybe still does step around in cat litter before shows. People use all kinds of different things to motivate, prepare, and push them throughout their careers. Football is an extreme game, and sometimes takes extreme measures (although I view nothing Rodgers does as extreme in terms of a chip on his shoulder). The guy just wants to prove that he can be one of the best. Good for him. Most the stars have felt the same way. I hope he continues to not only want to be one of the best Green Bay Packers ever, but one of the best players of all time, because if he achieves that, it likely means another Super Bowl win, or two, for the Packers. Hopefully Rodgers successor feels the exact same way. The Packers could have a QB like Mark Sanchez, Romo, Schuab, Locker, Dalton, . . . the list goes on and on. How lucky Packer fans are.

I am re-watching the superbowl right now. The number of slants and quick passes we are running is simply awesome, and i am suddenly sad.

There is a great article on Rodgers by Trent Dilfer. He talks about how QB's can beat you with their brains, arm, accuracy, and feet, stating Rodgers blows all other QB's away when you combine those four elements.
That was not the most interesting part of the article, however. He went on to say that the 49r's are in trouble because their defense has not changed much and they utilized the same schemes and looks all year. He went on to talk about Atlanta a few years ago and how they beat the Packers in the regular season but then Rodgers smoked them in the playoffs. The Falcons, in Dilfers mind, made the fatal error of thinking they had defensive schemes that could hold Rodgers in check but what happened was he saw everything they were trying to do and was one step ahead of them the second time around.
He went on to say that while the 49'rs have had success on defense their lack of additional kinds of schemes to throw Rodgers off will allow him to carve them up this second time around. They run essentially the same looks they did in week one.

I hope he's right.

As far as being a stat whore I think that's bogus. I see him as a guy that only cares about winning and if INT's didn't = losses he wouldn't worry about not throwing them as much. Based on how many games he's won and how many we lost thru no fault of his having done what he could to get a W I say just keep doing what your doing.
