Aaron has been captioned many things...

He was called cocky after his post draft remarks. He was called arrogant in his first camp in Green Bay. He has been called a cancer survivor hater, a player who can not generate a 4th quarter come back drive.

However the one label that always made me smile is that "He is a stat whore."

I think he put that label to bed yesterday.

The announcers in the game yesterday made me laugh when they stated: "Rodgers wants every Packer record and I am sure it irks him that Matt Flynn has the Packers record of 480 yards passing in a game."

REALLY?

Aaron had every opportunity to break it. But he did not. He ran the clock out.

I.M.H.O. The fella is just remarkable, and he has shot down every label the press and haters have put on him.

Rogers is special. He is so far above the critics and haters he is untouchable.

The only stat Aaron wants is how many championships can he get while he plays. Let people sort the others out after he retires.

Or he just wasn't tallying up the yards in his head because he had better things to think about, which tells you something.

Agreed. He's let Lynn Dickey's records stand too in the past.

But when he's had the chance to exceed Favre, he goes for it.

I'm sure Aaron Rodgers would like all records, except the interception record. That being said, Rodgers won't jeopardize the season's goal for a franchise record, nor would Mike McCarthy.

I think it's important fans know and understand this.

I guess I should clarify that I don't think he chases records at the expense of winning or anything. Just that he seems very aware of how he is perceived by the fans. Like the whole reconciliation attempts between him, the franchise and Favre. Rodgers knows full well if he were continue to try crap over Favre the fans would turn on him the minute his play started to decline. Hence he's the one most vocal one in support of getting Favre's number retired.

I just see him as the kind of guy who would crap all over Favre. The fans would only turn on him if he was a jerk. He is not. His support of Brett's jersey being retired has nothing to do with him. He knows what it means to the history of the franchise to do so and he is in support of it.

When has he gone out of his way to break a Favre record and when has he "let" someone elses recrod stand? I can't think of any examples.

“If (the record) comes in the flow of the game, awesome,” Rodgers said on his weekly radio show. “If not, you get to the 2-minute warning, James had a great run for a first down, and you kneel on it three times. That’s what you do.”

http://espn.go.com/blog/...-on-his-record-tying-day





http://www.620wtmj.com/s...-the-line-224104831.html


"Bakhtiari, Sitton, Dietrich-Smith, Lang and Barclay are a balance of experience and youth.

A lot of youth.

The very young twin B's are also twin offensive tackles, and they've had to face some of the toughest pass rushers in the game - guys like Aldon Smith and Ryan Kerrigan.

Aaron Rodgers has been slammed to the turf six times with the football in his hands - a pace of 48 sacks, slightly below his 2012 total, but still not the desired level of protection.

How do you solve that? Take the pressure off arguably the game's best player.

You can do that in many ways, the most obvious being solid pass protection.

But there's also getting the running backs involved with the running game and through screens, but especially with the ground game.

Notice something about what happened after James Starks got lathered up in the Washington win.

What did he do? Gain 132 yards, 130 after his first series on the field.

What did the Washington pass rush do after Starks's first series? Produce just one sack the rest of the game, and none until the score was 31-0.

(They'd sacked Rodgers three times beforehand, including Starks' first series.)

Certainly, lots of credit should come to Starks for that dominance.

But so much of it also belongs to the offensive line that turned Washington to mush.

Bakhtiari, Sitton, Dietrich-Smith, Lang and Barclay did the blue-collar dirty work that let the Packers have a record-setting day.

If they do their job all season long, just think of what the Packers' offense could do.

It is not out of the question to have five Packers players gain 1,000 yards from scrimmage this year."



Both excerpts from stories posted in newsfeed, didn't see any reason to start new thread.

Don't you think you need a little bit larger body of work than the Redskin game to make these claims? I do think our tackles are playing pretty well for their small amount of experience and talent they've gone up against. I'd love for you to be right Buckeye, but I'm far from convinced yet.
