Here's some interesting stuff from Peter King's Monday Morning Quarterback column in Sports Illustrated this morning:

What I Learned About Football This Week That I Didn't Know Last Week

Aaron Rodgers throws with more velocity now than Favre does.

Not my opinion; it's the opinion of Greg Jennings, who caught balls from Favre his first two years in the league and is in his first season with Rodgers. It goes against the grain of everything we've heard about Favre, who we still think of as Mr. Fastball, and the supposedly average-armed Mister Rodgers.

"Brett threw a variety of balls,'' Jennings told me the other day. "His biggest thing was his ability to lead you into where he wanted you with something on the ball. The biggest difference between Brett and Aaron now is Brett threw with a lot of touch. Don't get me wrong. He had some times when he could really throw it hard. If he was trying to drill one in there, he would gun it. Aaron throws with a lot of velocity, a little more velocity, with good timing.''

The one thing, naturally, Jennings is still establishing with Rodgers is chemistry. "Brett anticipates a lot sooner,'' Jennings said. "He's been playing so long, been around defenses so long, that he dissects defenses quicker. He probably knows where he's going with the ball earlier than Aaron.''

And Jennings sees one other difference, from the Packer huddle.

"Brett's a little more loose in there. You know, not that Aaron's tight; he's fine. But Brett was passing gas in the huddle.''

I liked Favre's on-field persona as much as anybody, but maybe it's time we had a little more intensity in the huddle. Too many late game turnovers off careless passes. Too many 2 minute drills where we didn't manage the clock well and ran out of time. Playing loose is good, but sometimes playing 100% focused is better.

I'd like to add something.

Quote:
Maybe rocky times will be coming for Aaron Rodgers, but when?

"It's only two games,'' he cautioned via the cell phone Sunday evening. "But I hope the fans buy myself and this team.''

Buy him? You kidding? If Rodgers were a stock, he'd be Microsoft in 1991. His two-game stat line:
Code:
W-L 	Comp.-Att. 	Pct. 	Yards 	TD 	Int 	Sacks 	Rating
2-0 	42-60 		.700 	506 	4 	0 	1 	117.8


In the same week the first pick in the 2005 draft, Alex Smith, went on IR and likely ended his busted career with San Francisco, the 24th pick in that same draft, Rodgers, began making a name for himself. Rodgers looks confident. He throws with a soft touch to some excellent receivers -- Greg Jennings is going to be a big star -- and the QB doesn't get rattled when things like blowing a 21-0 lead happen, as the Pack did in Detroit. And he is not surprised. "In my mind, I've been preparing for this for three years. I've been dreaming of this for three years,'' he said.

Rodgers is in a weird spot with Favre. At the end of last season, the formerly chilly relationship got warm, with Rodgers going to Favre's home for dinner. But a frost settled over the friendship in the offseason, when Favre retired and then came back, hopeful of getting his old job back, a job the Packers had given to Rodgers. When they both went to the ESPYs in Los Angeles, they didn't connect, even though they were in the same audience. I asked if the relationship was harmed forever.

"I sure hope not,'' Rodgers said. "I have so much admiration for Brett. I would love for the relationship to go back to what it was.''


The last line... interesting...

Yeah, that was from Peter King's column today in Sports Illustrated. I think he deserves credit.

I agree that it is an interesting line at the end. Right now, I can see why Favre doesn't want to be buddies with the guy who has the job that was his for 16 years and that he wishes was still his. But maybe after a few years things will normalize again. Right now Favre has to be thinking Jets, Jets, Jets, because that's who he's playing for.

It is amazing. Roddy think if someone pats Aaron Rodgers on the back that means they are peaing on BF at the same time.

Interesting stuff from Jennings, but I sure wish the players would stay away from that type of comments.. let Rodgers continue to build his own rep.. the media does this enough and need no encouragement from the players. Jennings did a fine job complimenting both equally.. the next player that tries it might not pull it off with the same moxie.

I sure hope I don't see a weekly line comparing the two.. they have different core players around them and any comparisons only carry so much weight.. I have been impressed with the way both have played so far this season considering the circumstances both had to deal with.
