There is a great article on Rodgers by Trent Dilfer. He talks about how QB's can beat you with their brains, arm, accuracy, and feet, stating Rodgers blows all other QB's away when you combine those four elements.
That was not the most interesting part of the article, however. He went on to say that the 49r's are in trouble because their defense has not changed much and they utilized the same schemes and looks all year. He went on to talk about Atlanta a few years ago and how they beat the Packers in the regular season but then Rodgers smoked them in the playoffs. The Falcons, in Dilfers mind, made the fatal error of thinking they had defensive schemes that could hold Rodgers in check but what happened was he saw everything they were trying to do and was one step ahead of them the second time around.
He went on to say that while the 49'rs have had success on defense their lack of additional kinds of schemes to throw Rodgers off will allow him to carve them up this second time around. They run essentially the same looks they did in week one.
I hope he's right.
As far as being a stat whore I think that's bogus. I see him as a guy that only cares about winning and if INT's didn't = losses he wouldn't worry about not throwing them as much. Based on how many games he's won and how many we lost thru no fault of his having done what he could to get a W I say just keep doing what your doing.

Not sure if that's the one he's referring to though ...
