Well.... I did not see it. However.

I just ran his numbers through my NFL QB Rating Web site.

Q.B. Rating for the first half in the Denver Game for this 24 year old kid....

123.24

A NFL QB Rating of 123.24

I can live with that.

He has a way to go... BUT HE IS..... 24 Years Old.

Life is good for this Packer Fan.

They are going to need to bring in a veteran QB though. Neither Flynn nor Brohm look like they're close to being ready to play. The defensive backs are awful and that includes Al Harris. Of course it would help if the defensive line could play at all, but our corners are awful I liked the way Aaron played tonight

I too couldn't watch the game, but just looking at the numbers I am pretty impressed. The defense, however, is another story.

I watched the game. He played very well. He was accurate. He was poised. He didn't have any happy feet. I posted a post about how we haven't seen him look like he did at Cal or even the Dallas game yet. Well he looked like that tonight.

Still it's just pre season but this was a nice performance to watch.

I'm with you on Brohm and maybe Flynn, but I'm not worried about Al Harris. He usually sucks in the preseason.

Tramon Williams had some rough moments at CB, but he was put on an island with a very talented WR, and he was right with the guy, but just didn't quite get it done. I think he will be a good nickel back, though he doesn't quite look ready to start if Harris or Woodson goes down.

THANKS FOR POINTING THAT OUT. In this very positive thread I started.

If it was not for your post, I would have slept well this evening, and forgot that there are always negative things in the world.

I just had a glow on. I was pumped. However, you just reminded me that things are more bad than good. That there is a down side.

Now I am sure... Positive in fact.... I eventually will be shot and killed while filling my gas tank at the gas station. I am sure that a 8.0 earthquake will hit Southern California and kill many of my friends.

I now am looking at the fact that my niece has a good possibility of being raped in college by date rape drugs. Hell... I there is a hell of a possibility I have a cancer growing in me right now but it has not yet been detected.

Fuck! I am sure that the next plane I get on is going to crash and my left arm will be found hanging from a swing set in the elementary school the plane crashed into.

Jeese... You are right as rain. There is not much to be pleased about in life.

I needed to start looking at things in a new light. I need to look at things the way you do.

Thank you for that.

I shall never, ever, ever, look at the positive again.

Thanks, I mean that a great deal.

RP: You are right, this should be a positive thread. But after a game, people say what's on their mind.

I saw the game, and Rodgers looked excellent. And one of the incompletions was a drop by James Jones. I thought last week's difficulties were a bit of a fluke anyway. And as I mentioned in another thread Aaron's QB sneaks were a big help for the offense. Although Favre was the toughest QB ever, he avoided that play in his later years, and so did the coaching staff. Although there are many things about Favre that we will miss, it is nice to have a young QB who will stick his nose in the pile and get that extra yard.

How did that DT Allen play?

I think we will be fine. We have a bunch of impact players that didn't play. Plus, we aren't showing very much of the playbook because IT'S ONLY PRESEASON!

AP Game Summary: Packers Edge Broncos 27-24

posted 08/22/2008

DENVER (AP) -- Aaron Rodgers went from pathetic one week to just about perfect the next.

Brett Favre's replacement as Green Bay quarterback bounced back from a bad game at San Francisco to complete 18 of 22 passes for 193 yards and a touchdown in the Packers' 27-24 win over Denver on Friday night.

Rodgers led four scoring drives in his five possessions and was 16-for-19 for 178 yards against the Broncos' starters, including a 10-yard touchdown to Donald Driver on the game's opening drive.

He added a 1-yard sneak for a score against the Broncos' reserves to open the second half before giving way to rookie Brian Brohm.

The Packers (1-2) sorely needed this kind of night from Rodgers in the last true tuneup for the regular season. He was 9-for-18 for 58 yards last week against San Francisco and failed to get the Packers into the end zone in one half of action.


18 of 22 - almost 200 yards in 2.25 quarters. Scoring points on 4 of 5 series. pretty dang solid.

Great posts guys.

I did see what I wanted to today out of Aaron Rodgers. (not that it matters) He made much better decisions I thought. Good ball placement and his backups really make him look like a stud!

It is pre season so the positives and negatives right now will soon be forgotten and rightfully so but....

I think calling Al Harris awful in pre season is a huge stretch. He's one of the best man to man coverage guys in the game today. I recall one long play where he got beat by Brandon Marshall. It's not like Harris isn't going to give up any plays this season. Same goes for Woodson. I'll take Al Harris over any other corner in the division not named Charles Woodson.

Now depth is a bit of a concern but Tramon Williams played well outside of when he was covering Brandon Marshall. Brandon Marshall is the best receiver in that division in my opinion. You would expect Marshall to beat Williams one on one all day long. So when Williams played that #3 receiver. He did well. When he played the #1, he struggled. That's about what I would expect.

I think the biggest concern is the defensive line. I agree with that. No pass rush at all this pre season. I have confidence in Kampman but he can't do everything. Denver also ran all over the Packers. Over 90 yards rushing in the 1st half. You can't have that.

Porky,
if you haven't figured it out yet, Al Harris is going to be this years whooping boy on this forum
His every move will be scrutinized, and when he doesn't play perfect he will be buried by the ones here that need to put the blame on someone.

Al is a veteran, he has been through numurous pre-season's, a veteran like Al Harris will be ready come Monday night Sept. 8th.

Good to see Aaron Rodgers bounce back last night. He looked solid.

Next weeks game will be for the guys trying to make the team, so expect most of the veterans to get thenight off, hopefully some of the young guys will take advantage of this opportunity and impress the coaches.

This is great, but for the love of God, WHY THE HELL do people insist on calling him by a thug nickname like "A-Rod?" That nickname is already used TWICE in sports by Alex Rodriguez and Andy Roddick. Is there no originality anymore? Is "Aaron Rodgers" or "Rodgers" that hard to spell? The whole "First initial, first syllable of last name nickname" thing is stupid anyway as it comes straight out of gang sub-culture.

How about from now on we go with B-Favre, D-Don, G-Jen, N-Barn, and B-Pop?

Good point, G-Blood. Couldn't have said it better myself.

Sorry, I couldn't resist....
