Aaron Rodgers's first regular season start comes with plenty of hype, national TV, and a hated division rival. Now the Minnesota Vikings are trying to get inside his head.

The wait is almost over for Rodgers. The Vikings game is just days away, and the buildup for the season opener is nearly unmatched.

"It's a little surreal. It feels like it went by quick but the years individually went by slow," Rodgers said. "It's nice to be the guy now."

The Vikings added even more spice to the opener and the rivalry. Back in August, after Favre was traded, the Vikings started trash talking.

"I'm not even going to say his name because he's not Favre. Whatever his name is, he's not Favre," defensive tackle Pat Williams said.

Defensive end Jared Allen, who is new the rivalry, added, "Hopefully I can put my helmet square in the back of his spine. If I can do that and knock the ball loose, it'll be a good day."

So does Rodgers feel like a marked man?

"Every quarterback is a marked man," he said. "I'm confident in the guys up front, and my job is to get the ball out of my hands. Hopefully I'll be able to get up after I get hit."

Under head coach Mike McCarthy, trash talking from the Packers locker room hardly happens, and Rodgers would not provide the Vikings with any bulletin board material.

"They want me to make a reaction to that. I don't need something like that to motivate me. I have enough motivation being the starting quarterback," Rodgers said.

"I've never seen anything to gain from it. That's really the only message I've given our players. I think it speaks volumes of how they go about their business," Coach McCarthy said.


Wow......i'm glad to see the Vikings are up to their old tricks! Keep flapping your jaws boys! That will make beating you that much sweeter! :thumbleft:

uffda udfa (3m) : Had it been other way around I would've been screaming and so would u.
uffda udfa (28m) : It's just true. I try hard to see it and tell it like it is. Was OPI.
Zero2Cool (2h) : which is of course ok, i just personally see it as weird.
Zero2Cool (3h) : Just odd that a Packers fan points out when Packers perceived to get away with something, yet ignore opponent. Weird.
Zero2Cool (3h) : Packers added RB Christine Michael (back) to the injury report as questionable
uffda udfa (3h) : Not diminishing anything. He got away with OPI. Didn't notice before. Was in airport.
Zero2Cool (5h) : Bahahahahahahha GO PACK GO!!!!
Zero2Cool (5h) : when you're buying your Super Bowl LI Champion gear, be critical of that too!
Zero2Cool (5h) : keep trying to diminish what the Packers have done and ...
Zero2Cool (5h) : one... that's just how it goes. They let the players play. But go ahead
Zero2Cool (5h) : Everyone knows on the hail mary type passes, those little shoves won't be called. Think replacement refs 2012. So, no did not get away with
Dulak (6h) : ya I think they mentioned that U U ... but you see this alot - even in the dallas game they pushed off at least 1 time (they as in dallas)
uffda udfa (12h) : Just rewatched Cobbs hail mary catch in slo mo...he should've been flagged for OPI. Got away with one.
uffda udfa (14h) : Nope. I like Gus.
beast (15h) : Did you want Anthony Lynn as HC? Cushion Bradley was going to follow Lynn where ever.
uffda udfa (16h) : Gus Bradley is new DC in SD/LA. I would've loved to had him here in Green Bay.
uffda udfa (20h) : It's just fine.
musccy (20h) : 5 questionable Packers, none for Falcons. Not good.
uffda udfa (20h) : Jordy not listed as OUT or DOUBTFUL. Questionable on injury report.
uffda udfa (21h) : This is the 6th straight game we've faced someone for the 2nd time. We learn.
uffda udfa (21h) : Aaron: I like our role. I like our chances. (said he relishes being an underdog)
uffda udfa (21h) : Aaron alludes to fake crowd noise at Georgia Dome for Sunday.
uffda udfa (22h) : So, to recap. Losing streak "just the way it is", winning streak "astronomical feat". #Balanced
uffda udfa (22h) : Ironically, he called the turn around "astronomical" not just the way it is in the NFL. #Don'tMissTheIrony
uffda udfa (22h) : Ted tells Demovsky the Packers weren't underachieving when 4-6. Just the way it is in the NFL????
Zero2Cool (20-Jan) : Only time I recall getting annoyed is when they beat a single topic over and over and over.
Pack93z (20-Jan) : Most yes... Heller seems to get it more so... diversity in his coverage... but seemingly can highlight the pressing issues properly.
Zero2Cool (20-Jan) : I'm kind of in the boat that they all are babblying boonies.
Pack93z (20-Jan) : God bless it... Bill Michaels can be a stubborn SOB at times... love his Packers coverage, still think he is a buffoon at times.
Zero2Cool (20-Jan) : Jordy Nelson Named PFWA Comeback Player of the Year
Zero2Cool (20-Jan) : Carter is predicitng the end is in ATL for Packers.
Porforis (20-Jan) : Or I could just completely miss the part where that was Cris Carter.
Porforis (20-Jan) : Careful there. Don't you want to predict a Packers loss just in case?
Zero2Cool (20-Jan) : @criscarter80 :Every fairy tale comes to an end, and this is where the magic carpet ride stops in the ATL.
