Yes Rodgers might of had more time to watch learn and probably a better team then most qb's that would start there first game ... but still I must give credit to where it's due and Rodgers has been very impressive. The way he handled vikings d-line was incredible ... as good as Favre ... most of you would say put any QB and it would be good but I highly doubt it. Rodgers doesn't only have the talent to play but he also has the brain and take's smarter and less riskier decision then Brett does. For example some plays Brett is in the rush and running to the outside he would tend to try to fit it in even if it was impossible which led to some int's on the other hand Rodgers tends to throw them out and not risk getting sacked nor getting int. Bravo Rodgers very impressive first 2 starts

comparing any qb with 2 games experience to one that is a HOF'er is redonkulous.

To say he makes better decisions is also premature. So far he has faced the worst pass defense last year and then the lions.

Why do we have to compare them? They both bring attrubutes to the table that are good and bad. To say we are better off or worse off is simply conjecture.

The packers are a much, much, MUCH better team now then when Favre was thrown in. This team has far better athletes than that one had.

Some of the comparison points (accuracy, looking off receivers, scrambling ability) are valid, but it's important to keep in mind that Aaron has a helluva lot in terms of weapons to throw to, while Favre at that time had Sharpe and that was about it.

Rodgers is having a way better start then Brett has. Hopefully he will pan out better then Brett.


I'm not sure how much better you can "pan out" than being a sure-fire first ballot hall of famer.

Agreed but what else do you really need when you are THE BRETT? :thumbleft:

Perhaps he could be voted into the HOF BEFORE he retires? :cheers:

uffda udfa (30m) : This is the 6th straight game we've faced someone for the 2nd time. We learn.
uffda udfa (31m) : Aaron: I like our role. I like our chances. (said he relishes being an underdog)
uffda udfa (37m) : Aaron alludes to fake crowd noise at Georgia Dome for Sunday.
uffda udfa (1h) : So, to recap. Losing streak "just the way it is", winning streak "astronomical feat". #Balanced
uffda udfa (1h) : Ironically, he called the turn around "astronomical" not just the way it is in the NFL. #Don'tMissTheIrony
uffda udfa (1h) : Ted tells Demovsky the Packers weren't underachieving when 4-6. Just the way it is in the NFL????
Zero2Cool (5h) : Only time I recall getting annoyed is when they beat a single topic over and over and over.
Pack93z (5h) : Most yes... Heller seems to get it more so... diversity in his coverage... but seemingly can highlight the pressing issues properly.
Zero2Cool (5h) : I'm kind of in the boat that they all are babblying boonies.
Pack93z (5h) : 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 (6h) : Jordy Nelson Named PFWA Comeback Player of the Year
Zero2Cool (7h) : Carter is predicitng the end is in ATL for Packers.
Porforis (7h) : Or I could just completely miss the part where that was Cris Carter.
Porforis (7h) : Careful there. Don't you want to predict a Packers loss just in case?
Zero2Cool (8h) : @criscarter80 :Every fairy tale comes to an end, and this is where the magic carpet ride stops in the ATL.
Zero2Cool (8h) : McCarthy: "JC Tretter actually had surgery Tuesday. He won't be available this week"
Zero2Cool (9h) : Crosby is fine now. Full Participant in practice Thursday
Porforis (10h) : What I'm more worried about at this point is WR injuries and Crosby being sick. Who'd be the backup if Crosby can't go?
Zero2Cool (10h) : We do have hope. Our secondary has improved. Also, he had to throw 80% to get 1 point up. That won't happen again.
Zero2Cool (10h) : I like to tease sometimes.
uffda udfa (10h) : Only 80%? :). We lost by one given that stat? Wish we had hope of tightening up.
uffda udfa (10h) : Z, u should tell everyone who Quintorris is. Quintorris Lopez Jones, better known as Julio.
Zero2Cool (10h) : Matt Ryan completed 80% of his passes against Packers in October.
uffda udfa (10h) : McGinn goes full on attack mode dismissing the notion of "Packers people". Harsh.
uffda udfa (10h) : McGinn says John Dorsey likely to be next Packers GM.
Zero2Cool (13h) : Boom! Davante Adams says last year's ankle injury "more difficult to deal with'
uffda udfa (16h) : Packers brass potentially leaving? Not worthy of discussing. Pressure Cooker? Never enough talk about them.
Zero2Cool (21h) : Put Quintorris in a pressure cooker.
uffda udfa (19-Jan) : Back to football: Julio says he's going to play Sunday. Did NOT say he wouldn't be limited in the game.
uffda udfa (19-Jan) : Anyone ever used their dishwasher to make their Thanksgiving turkey?
uffda udfa (19-Jan) : Favorite Ronnie Milsap song? Smokey Mountain Rain or Any Day Now?
uffda udfa (19-Jan) : Favorite GM candidate... Wolf or Gutekunst?
uffda udfa (19-Jan) : I'd rather sit them than play them too compromised.
uffda udfa (19-Jan) : Yeah, Z. More pressure cooker talk and smoked turkeys.
Zero2Cool (19-Jan) : If this were a regular-season game, Nelson, Adams and Allison probably would not play, MM says.
