A buddy of mine was at the game. He just told me the crowd was behind Aaron 100% and they were indeed cheering loudly for him.

That might seem small, but to me that is huge for the young man.

That's good to hear, but not too surprising. The jerks all disappeared into the woodwork once the Packers played a game that counted.

Most of those fans are wearing green and white jersies now, not green and gold, and that works for me.

Said buddy has arrived. Aaron Rodgers was 100% accepted, and as long as he continues to play, learn, and hopefully increase his skills I don't see it changing. Most of the "popular" media just like to pour tasty, sugary drama into the whole Favregate incident.
Help! The refs are running out of flags to throw!

Thanks for the firsthand report. Rodgers will increase his skills, but the cool thing is that he doesn't even need to. He's already really good!

As for being accepted, he did an amazing job of allowing the fans to accept him. When the Favre controversy was raging, Rodgers had lots of opportunities to shoot off his mouth or even make an inadvertent comment that would've made him look bad, but he remained mostly quiet and always respectful of the fans except for the one misstep--the "get on board or shut up" comment, which he pretty much retracted anyway.

Hah, I didn't think ya'd make it. :) Ya know how tricky it is, registering an all.


I'm really glad to hear that the fans were behind Rodgers. I think he's done just about everything right up to this point and deserves our support.

If they weren't then they're cheering him now. I for one am very glad though.

I'll be at the Dallas game and I didn't want to be at a game where Packer fans were booing their QB.

I was there too...

more than a handfull of Favre Jet jerseys

and the crowd was ready to erupt and cheer for him anytime he did something good...

I did not get the feeling at all that the crowd was looking to for him to faiil

The crowd did boo LIKE crazy the o-l play in 1st half
