Person 2: oh, you dont know? Its thier quarterback, aaron rodgers! Isnt he cute?!
Now a term used for being an underdog and having to live up to someone's achievements.
Aaron Rodgers: 341/536 (63.6%), 4,308 yards (7.53 yards), longest 71, 28 touchdowns, 13 interceptions, sacked 34 times, 93.8 passer rating.
Notes: The Packers defense was terrible this year, their o-line not performing well, Ryan Grant struggled, and Greg Jennings/Donald Driver are nowhere near as good as Laveranues Coles and Jerricho Cotchery.
Brett Favre: 343/522 (65.7%), 3,472 (6.65 yards), longest 56, 22 touchdowns, 22 interceptions, sacked 30 times, 81 passer rating.
Notes: Granted Favre had a better completion percentage, his total and average passing yards is noticeably lower than Rodgers (and Favre had a better wide receivers unit). Favre had less touchdowns than Rodgers and more interceptions.
Packers Nation, stop blaming Rodgers for the poor season. If the Packers improve their defense in the offseason, they're going to be the team to watch out for.
Person B: Aaron Rodgers.
Pssh, Brett Favre is awesome. Wait, who replaced him? Mega-God Aaron Rodgers.
With the retirement of Brett Favre, long time starter and iron man in March of 2008, Aaron Rodgers was named starter.
Favre announced his return in July of that year however causing much controversy as the Green Bay Packers organization had claimed to stick with Rodgers as starter of the team at Quarterback.
Brett Favre ended up being traded to the New York Jets, mainly do to Rodgers.
Aaron Rodgers as of August 2008 has had very limited play time in the NFL completing 35 of 59 passes for 329 yards with 1 TD and 1 INT.
Many people had begun to criticize him as he can never truly replace Brett Favre.
Aaron Rodgers is destined to be a mediocre quarterback probably becoming a journeyman going from team to team
Aaron Rodgers is a nobody and never will be of any significance as Quarterback in the NFL
