lol I was just reading over, and not to pick on Vikings fans, But I kind of found that funny coming.

To be honest that pass reminded me a lot of one Tom Brady would launch up there. Favre usually are decently high, but more on a line. That ball had some serious height and distance.


I always laugh when people say stuff like that. "IF it wasnt for this or that, things would have turned out differently." They make no sense. Because the This or that DID HAPPEN!!!

Here it is.


It was all the jersey. A throwback to the days when the QB ran more often.
Thanks for the memory.

Funny though don't mention the "if" the Donald Driver TD didn't count..Oh wait.. Reality is this game was a lot closer then it should have been.

Thats what I loved. Anytime Brett ran, he looked like he was running in slo-motion. Rodgers has some WHEELS. Thats something other D's didn't have to worry about. NOW they DO!!! :thumbright:


To his defense, Brett had some wheels when he was 24 too.

Even at 24 he was never "fast". I remember that game against the Bears in Chicago in that windstorm on a halloween night........Favre ran for a TD, but it was like he was wearing lead shoes!


Yeah, I remember that. Favre never was fast, but man, Aaron can really run.

Another thing on the Jennings bomb is that it had about 1.25 seconds of hang time, and travelled about 65 yards. I'd call it a "frozen rainbow" but anything to do with rainbows just pisses Aaron Rodgers off.

The craziest pass was the TD, though. If you watch it from the back of the endzone camera, it curves about 3 yards, while still being the tightest damn spiral you've ever seen. Just amazing.

That touchdown pass confirmed for me that Aaron Rodgers is Jesus. The constantly changing beard is just his attempt to disguise his identity so people don't recognize him.

That TD pass was a Brett Favre pass. Falling backwards, and putting it in the exact place that it needed to be. And for a second I really forgot Rodgers was playing, when he took that quick drop and fired in that quick slant. Just the body language of how he did it, made my mind go to Favre. Who says this guy doesnt have a strong arm!

Hey! I resent that. Blackmore's Rainbow is one of my all-time favorite bands.

Merill Hoge from ESPN said Aaron lacks accuracy on the deep
ball and has trouble throwing it.

So much for what Hoge knows..

We all know the truth.

Salisbury told Hoge was wrong and that Aaron has plenty of arm
and accuracy on the deep ball.

Salisbury knows the truth =)

Not every ball is going to be right on the money. Some people have very little evidence to work with when going into discussions in the media so I take almost everything I hear from someone looking from the outside in with a grain of salt.
