If Favre had thrown that pass, the announcers would've been saying that it was the kind of gutsy throw that only the wily old gunslinger could've made. It was a perfect dart to Jennings, leaving the DB flailing at the air. Jennings jogged into the end zone untouched. A thing of beauty.

I loved the play! and I agree with you. Exept one the part that it was a dart to jennings. I think that ARod is lucky that it didnt get picked off. The defender was out of position. if he was where he was supposed to be I think it would have been picked off. Thats what it looked like to me.

If the DB was where he was supposed to be, Rodgers probably would not have made that throw. It's all about taking advantage of your opponents' weaknesses. Make 'em pay dearly for their mistakes.

Looked like Rogders saw a break down in the seam. Got it up just high enough to get to Jennings. Looked like a throw Favre would try to make on the side lines.

I THINK LOS ANGELES IS LUCKY THAT THE CITY HAS NOT BEEN PICKED OFF BY A 9.0 Earth Quake.

The San Andreas Fault was out of position. If the San Andreas fault was where it was suppose to be I think Los Angeles would have been picked off.

That is what it looks like to me.

Sorry,

I am just trying to be a little more cynical than you, as far as ifs, would have, and could have negativity. You are the Champion tonight in this category.

P.M. me in the morning... I need a little negative vibe in my life.

This throw really is what it is. A pre season pass.

What this does is it allows Rodgers to go into the season on a high note. It should boost his confidence and it also helps other players' confidence as well.

Wow..That was a little of an over reaction. I was thrilled that we got the TD. It almost got picked off..Just like so many passes could be. I wasnt knocking Rodgers or his decision to make the pass. I was just pointing out that he was lucky it wasnt picked off. Just like many times Brett was lucky his passes were not picked. And just like Peyton Manning and Tom Brady are lucky that some of their passes are not picked off. I love the call, and I love the decision that Arod made to throw it to Jennings.

Sweet play, and good to see. But I wish McCarthy would have let the starters play one more series. I wanted to get a look at Grant...

Didn't see the play in question.. but the margin for error in the NFL is small.. a great number of plays could go either way with just a small adjustment by another player.

It is managing risks in plays that count the most.. you have to win the better share of your gambles.. this is an area that I think will be one of few improvements in the QB play here in GB. Albeit last year the number of "Rut-Roh" plays were at a minimum, I expect Rodgers to take care of the ball very efficiently.
