I never wrote that he would. Brett is special.

Of course there are records Chico will never break. I do not think Chico has a chance of ending up with the NFL record for most career Interceptions . It is also probable he will not break the record for most completions or T.D.'s

More Superbowl Rings then Brett? I would say yes he will accomplish that, and when it is all done and over with, that is all that really matters to most players that ever played the game.

We made the right move by moving on from Favre. Rodgers is playing great and we dont have to pay him 12 million.

I agree RP.
But just saying Rodgers will be good is "attacking" favre to some. They think that NO ONE will EVER be good here. ONLY Favre matters to them.
It's really sad, cause reality says either way that Favre would have been gone one way or another within the next one to two seasons. These people have not prepared themselves for the inevitable. They think there just CAN'T be Packer football after Favre. They forget that there WAS Packer football before him, and there will be after him.
I think they would be much more satisfied if they left here and went to a Jets forum, until Favre retires permanently. Here all they will do is complain how Rodgers will never amount to anything.....he just CAN'T!
I REALLY feel sorry for them, as they are missing out on a beautiful start to this season, and to our new QB's career.
They are so busy looking down at their shoes that they are missing the fireworks!

The subject was Brett being classy toward Rodgers.. but again it ended right where every thread with Favre does.. in a winding debate that turns into a speculative argument.

Brett has a body of work that few if anyone has challenged, Rico has 2 very specular starts, and projects well going forward.

Then people wonder why some kindly ask that those debates be held in his very own forum.. something that no other player has. That there is respect.

Sorry Pack93z.....i keep allowing myself to get dragged into it.

Anyone that brings up BF outside of that area you mentioned is just asking for trouble. I love the guy.........but he's NOT here anymore. Aaron Rodgers is "my" guy now.

Nothing to be sorry about.. but it happens every time he is mentioned, no matter the context. Even in a classy move it quickly degrades into the course..

Brett Vs Aaron Vs Mike Vs Ted.. no matter the record or performance.. we as Packer boards can't seem to be content that we are performing well, not perfect, but we are playing winning ball.

It is just that we can't seem to have a conversation even broaching Favre without both the shots or praising taking hold of the thread..

No, he's not better than Favre, RIGHT NOW.

I'd like to see A-Rod on the Jets. Now that would be funny.

Favre on the Packers, on the other hand, would have similar numbers or better.

A-Rod is not better than Favre, nor will he EVER BE.

Is A-Rod going to break every NFL passing record that matters in the book?

I highly doubt it.

(Now....to give the proper meaning of this post)

WAAAHHHHH!!!! I WANT BRETT FAVRE TO BE OUR QB!!! I DON'T CARE HOW GOOD RODGERS IS! I WILL POUT AND CARRY ON LIKE THIS ALL SEASON! RODGERS COULD BE THE MVP OF THE LEAGUE, WIN THE SUPER BOWL, BE THE SUPER BOWL MVP AND I STILL WOULD SAY HE'S NO GOOD!!! WHY??? CAUSE HE'S NOT BRETT FAVVVVVVVRE!!!! WAHHHHHH!!!!

That sums it up better i believe.



Well after reading alot of posts, alot of people are making Rodgers the MVP of the league already and the SuperBowl MVP. C'mon guys gimmie a break he played 2 games againt 2 very very weak pass defenses. I for one can't stand Rodgers but will admit he has played well, but wait before you crown him as god please. I will say this; in chat during the Lions game i was chuckling because when Rodgers was struggling for that quarter or so alot of people sure turned on him fast, is this what we get to put up with all year? But getting back to the reason of the thread i will say that it was Brett being Brett and saying what he thinks and not whats politically correct like Rodgers does(but then again Brett don't have ARI).

I just want the Packers to win we are 1/2 way to my total win predictions for the year so go Pack

and what is funny about that?

Majority of fans said he sucks, wont last 1st game, will be bad for a while etc...etc...


So why was it okay for them to bash him with even SEEING him play but yet its not okay to have HIGH hopes for him now?

Once again don't see any crowning going on, just excited fans responding to a positive statement made by our former starting QB.

It's too bad this thread degenerated. It's nice that BF said something positive about Aaron Rodgers . I thought it was a classy move on BF 's part. Nothing more.

beast (2h) : I'm not sure if it's still true, but it used to be hard to get sacks on Eli because he'd toss one up when linemen got semi-close (which lead
Zero2Cool (3h) : Slam Eli a lot very early. Once rattled he can't regain composure.
beast (3h) : since slot WRs might be the Packers strength depth/talent wise
beast (3h) : With AR's passing % down field so low, I've been saying they should go with short passes like the Pats used to do, especially since slot WRs
beast (3h) : What's going to be needed against the Giants is OL and DBs (IMO)
Smokey (23h) : Cook(TE) has time to heal, but may not be needed against NYG on Oct 9th .
