Rodgers Now America’s Third-Favorite Active Pro Athlete

Aaron Rodgers

Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers is America’s third-favorite active pro athlete in what were sure was a real scientific poll conducted by ESPN. Here are the results and who beat him.

Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers finished fourth in EPSN’s top NFL players power rankings. New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady easily took top honors with six first-place votes and 78 total points. The Indianapolis Colts’ Peyton Manning was second, followed by the New Orleans Saints’ Drew Brees.

Best Quarterbacks In NFL History: Green Bay Packers

Brett Favre

Certainly, this is another subjective list, but it’s hard to argue with the Green Bay Packers as the franchise with the best quarterbacks in NFL history. The important thing to note here is quarterbacks is plural, so this isn’t a Johnny Unitas vs. Joe Montana argument. NFL.com’s Dave Dameshek recently took a look at every NFL […]

Rodgers Shafted In Quarterback Rankings

Aaron Rodgers

Predictable? Yes. Correct? Not even close. The New England Patriots’ Tom Brady finished first in ESPN’s quarterback power rankings. While it’s hard to argue with the reigning NFL MVP and a three-time Super Bowl champion taking the top spot, it’s pretty easy to argue with the other two guys who finished ahead of the Green Bay Packers’ Aaron Rodgers

Seven Green Bay Packers Make Top 100 List

Aaron Rodgers

Seven Green Bay Packers made CBSSports.com senior writer Pete Prisco’s top 100 NFL players of 2011 list. The top-ranked Packer should come as no surprise. QB Aaron Rodgers came in at No. 6 overall — behind Texans wideout Andre Johnson, Raiders cornerback Nmandi Asomugha, Cowboys linebacker DeMarcus Ware and (puke) quarterbacks Tom Brady and Peyton […]

It’s Time Aaron Rodgers Entered The MVP Conversation

Aaron Rodgers

It would be a lot easier to make this argument if the Green Bay Packers had beaten the Atlanta Falcons on Sunday, but it’s nonetheless time Aaron Rodgers entered the MVP conversation. Rodgers has been nothing short of spectacular over the Packers’ last three games. In fact, he’s carried a Packers offense that has little-to-no […]

Observations From Packers 59-24 Victory Over Colts

Peyton Manning

The Green Bay Packers offense is potent, we knew that, but in their longest outing of the preseason against last year’s AFC champs, they put any doubts to rest. Quarterback Aaron Rodgers, who I have a hard time believing isn’t on his way to becoming the best player in the NFL, cut up the Colts […]

The Thing About Preseason Predictions

Is they don’t mean anything. Sure, the Green Bay Packers are the preseason darling of many — the fashionable Super Bowl choice, if you will. What does that get the Packers? High expectations. Granted, there’s no reason this year’s version of the Packers shouldn’t have high expectations entering the season, but it’s July 1. No […]

Woodson Packers’ Lone All Pro

Charles Woodson

In news that should really surprise no one, cornerback Charles Woodson is the Green Bay Packers lone member of the NFL All-Pro team. The All-Pro team is voted on my members of the Associated Press and made up of the top players from both conferences, unlike the Pro Bowl, which separates the squads into AFC […]

Should There Be Penalties For Sitting Starters?

When you buy a ticket do you want to watch this guy play, or Peyton Manning?

Although the Indianapolis Colts are at the center of this discussion after they pulled the plug early against the New York Jets on Sunday, the Green Bay Packers very much factor into the conversation because, as we’ve discussed, Sunday’s game against the Arizona Cardinals could very well be meaningless for the Pack. It brings up […]

MVP Push Begins For Favre

During Sunday’s blowout of the Seattle Seahawks fans started the MVP chant for Minnesota Vikings’ quarterback Brett Favre. Favre threw four touchdown passes and was 22-of-25 for 213 yards on Sunday. On the season, he’s thrown 21 touchdowns against three interceptions. He also leads the league in quarterback rating at 112.1. Predictably, Favre’s teammates and […]

Brett Favre – Most Overrated Athlete of All Time

Brett Favre

That’s right, we’re talking about none other than Brett Favre. Actually, we’re not talking about him, the Atlanta Journal Constitution’s Mark Bradley is talking about him, and calling him the most overrated athlete ever. In fact, Bradley (who will now forever be known around these parts as a douchebag that knows nothing about sports, and […]

Packers vs. Colts Notes and Favre vs. Green Bay Becomes ESPN vs. Fox

Peyton Manning crying

Before I get to the mind numbing douchebaggery that is the latest Brett Favre fiasco, let me share a few quick observations and opinions regarding the Green Bay Packers’ 34-14 dismantling of the Indianapolis Colts. Aaron Rodgers continues to impress the NFL world, Packers fans and most importantly, his teammates. Not only has he played […]
