Two out of the last nine Super Bowl winners have had first-year starters at QB. And yet many people consider it to be a fact that the Packers cannot win the Super Bowl with a first year QB. How stupid can people get? I have no problem with people saying that the Packers' chances of winning it all are less with Rodgers than they would've been with Favre, even though I don't agree with that statement. But it gets silly when people make such extreme statements.

I realize that Madden wasn't saying that. He likes Favre because he's an announcer and Favre is an exciting and charismatic player. Madden knows which side his bread is buttered on.

Well I'm glad I'm going to the Cowboys game that way I won't have to hear Madden talk about Favre the whole time.

I actually like Madden and don't get me wrong I like Favre but I'm tired of talking about it. This is a new team and it's time to talk about them but I guess they just have to win for that to happen.

i happen to be a big madden fan - at least i used to be. i think he's got a great football mind however his age is showing in some of the off hand comments he's made over the past couple years or so.

Madden is not an idiot. He just plays one on TV.

So you think that the Packer's chances are just as strong this year with Rodgers than it would have been with Fav-re? That is just as silly and extreme as people saying that the Packers have no chance.

The fact is that Rodgers does not bring as much to the table as Fav-re in the short run, but he is a better choice for the organization in the long run. I think the Packers made the right decision, but handled it very badly.

Oh yeah, and Madden is an idiot. (Seriously, I hate that guy) ;)

He might be an idiot, but he has one helluva kickass football game!

Sadly, I don't think he's made any significant contribution to it for about 5 years. Selling out Tom Clancy style.

Five years? ha, I'd go back 15. Aside from his commentary, he adds little to the game. it has his name on it therefore I call it 'his' game. ;)

The only thing he added this year was his commentary on the Madden Test

And the commentary is the worst part of the game.

(Wow it really is lifelike in that aspect...:))
