After all the ridicule and criticism he has taken for nearly 3 seasons, Aaron Rodgers has finally silenced his critics......big time.

The biggest game in many years, virtually no actual game experience, national spotlight, his first significant playing time, and the kid played a gutsy, fearless, great game. Kept his wits about him in a pressure cooker situation and played very well. Aaron Rodgers is an NFL QB. He proved that last night.

Who has criticized Aaron Rodgers, Christ he is first round draft choice and the future of the Packers. For that matter how could anyone criticize him, he hasn't played yet except for mop up after Farve goes down.
I got to admit Jerry, sometimes you come on this forum and act like your gods gift to enlightenment. Christ I don't recall anyone that normally posts here badmouthing TT MM or AR. And those posts that did badmouth our teams players, coaches or manager where other teams fans or are they are long gone. Knock it off. People that act like they know everything, seldom do.

Aaron's game is coming around. He's got a lot of zip on the ball, is accurate, and has full command of this offense. He is playing with confidence; to think he came into that game and almost brought us back while staying within the offense. A couple things were proven last night; Rogers has game, when we stay within our offense we can score against Dallas, behind Harris and Woodson; we have no CB's that can cover, did nice job stopping their run game, safety play looks a little shaky, we found our RB if there were still any doubters. TT was smart to draft Rogers even though we wouldn't need a QB for a few more years.

Who ridiculed and criticized Rodgers? You must be kidding. It's been all over this forum and the other Packer forums since his first training camp. Now you are saying you never saw anything. Your fellow posters here are not going to believe you said that.

Dude its 1 game... I hope he is great but dont put to much into 1 game... Mike and mike and jaworski were talking about his success and how the cowboys were so ready for favre that they didnt care for rodgers nor did they prepare for him and that led to his success... They think he will be good and i hope he will be but its just 1 game... hopefully we will get some blowouts and see more of his as the season nears an end. If the final game doesnt mean anything i would sit favre and play him but i doubt they will because of the record.

On a side note... Jerry... eric and whoever else... I want some input... I love favre but i want whats best for the team and that is favre right now... Lets say favre comes back next year and rodgers plays better then him in the preseason... do you think management will have the backbone to trade him or sit him because believe it or not i think we could get a good draft pick for favre from a desperate team like the ravens... Favre is the guy but rodgers has alot of potential and i think the best case scenario is we win the superbowl and favre goes out ontop and rodgers comes in. If healthy i think its very possible we can make and win the big game.

While I'm not ready to put Rodgers in the hall of fame, I do give him credit (as do many many Packer fans) for his outstanding performance last night. In fact it is what most fans are talking about today. So I don't buy your Mike & Mike explanation. Besides do you really think Dallas wanted to make it a 27-24 game?

Brett Favre will never be traded by the Packers. Nor will he agree to be a backup to Rodgers. When the time comes, Brett will retire from the Packers and never play again for another team. And that is the way it should be. He will forever be a Packer legend.

If Rodgers beats him out next preseason, it will never be made public. The team and Brett will quietly work out a story for his retirement that will not diminish his image.

I think Rodger's performance last nite will have everyone including Brett thinking about that possibility and will hasten his departure. Your question is very timely.

No i dont think dallas wanted it that close... and you dont need to buy the mike and mike explanation because its opinionated and i agree with them and some people might not and that is up to them...Dallas studied all week for favre and when rodgers came in the game plan changed alot because of the mobility he has and that made them fall back on what they were doing and rodgers connected... He was impressive and i hope he has a huge career but we have not witnessed how he is when a defense actually has a game plan for a qb that actually has game experiance... Now teams will have some footage on what he can do at the nfl level... You cant silence the critics with 3 quarters of play... Before anyone hop skips and jumps through hoops maybe we should wait and see what he can do before anyone makes him cream of the crop... like u said he took 3 years of ridicule and you think 66.6 percent of 1 game makes him a true nfl quarterback? Im sorry if im screwing up peoples day but I myself want to wait and see what the kid has before He becomes a True Nfl quarterback.

Aaron showed something "Farve bigger" than his qb rating-the boy has mojos. And by the way, he played a great game. There is no way the Packers can let him go and must find a way to keep him happy. This hasn't been a real priority. His performance on Thursday in such a hostile environment was one that maybe 15 QBs in the league could have matched. If you are Miami, Atlanta, Chicago, Carolina, Buffalo, Baltimore, Washington, St. Louis, Denver, KC for sure and maybe SF, Jacksonville, Houston, Detroit, Tampa Bay, Philadelphia (and I am sure there are others I have forgotten) wouldn't you rather give this kid a shot than count on what you have? Count on GMs to be working Green Bay for a shot at him.

I agree Brian. Aaron Rodgers is one of the hotest properties in the NFL thanks to his performance Thursday. Ted Thompson's phone will be ringing off the hook after the season ends, if it's not already ringing.

This is no small thing. Rodgers played well against one of the best teams in the NFL in the biggest game in years, and not some schlock team with a losing record.

Rightfully so, he put himself in a position to demand big bucks as a young starting QB, and the Pack cannot afford to pay two QBs top money. Nor can they they afford to lose Rodgers. So something has to give.

I've told friends that Aaron's performance on Thursday will move up Favre's retirement plans, and that I now expect Brett to retire this off season. Brett will NOT want to compete with Rodgers in the off season for that starting job.

Yes your right and aj feeley should be the starter and future qb because of what he do for the eagles against the patriots... Favre is not going to retire unless we win a superbowl... he can still play he is having an mvp type season and will lead us to the playoffs... The only thing that came out of the other night was we know rodgers could be very good... But i still want to see what he can do and will not jump to conclusions like you have all because of one game.

agreed Favre isnt going to retire because Rodgers is doing well. I supect the 2 should fight for the starting job,prob, is if Rodgers wins out, what next? Id say Let Rodgers start,but what to do with Favre?

If Favre starts,Rodgers is gone, then favre retires after 08 or so,then we have nothing,so looks like TT will have a major decision to make and if it was mine , id go with the better qb in preseason and if it was ROdgers then so be it.

Favre has had a great career and up till last week many great games,hee doesnt play well in Dallas ( thats obvious) hes not played well in big games the last few years,,thats obvious,so what to do.
I propose tell Favre we are going this way,and if he wants to retire so be it,maybe he will change his mind and want to play, like Reggie White did for a hometown team,,( in Favres case N.O. or Tenn. Caro.) ect or who know,if he thinks he can play and we go Rodgers,he may except a trade.

Tough choice coming up and the better for the team,its future is at stake,its not time to be sentimental about it.
