We can't all grasp the concept of a gunslinger mentality QB and a QB who makes as many great plays as bad plays.

Hiya Sue, get any snow yesterday? I can't see them waiting again to their 2nd pick (#40) to grab one then and as the trending appears to be away from a run on the likelihood that all 4 of the most talked about being snatched up right away, I imagine they will take one of those with their 8th pick. Weird draft as I've heard some mocks that would leave 3 or even 4 of the QBs still available at that time while some would have you believe they will all be gone.

If I'm down by 4 with less than two minutes in the game, I want Rodgers and not Favre as my quarterback.

I've never seen a player's reputation in any sport change as quickly as Brett Favre's (specifically in 2010). Prior to 2010, the national media always tended to (IMO) overhype Favre, overlooking his many interceptions and relatively paltry team accomplishments post-1997 and playing up his toughness and career records. Now Favre is almost underrated (though his reputation is now much closer to his actual accomplishments IMO). Say what you want above Favre, but his longevity and durability were pretty amazing and he was good to very good for a long time after his mid-to-late 1990s peak.

I guess when a player "mocks" one of those fanbases that the media decides to put on a pedestal and thinks cannot be criticized (through his many retirement/unretirement decisions and decision to join the Minnesota Vikings), that kind of reputation turn will occur.

To answer the question, we need to see what Rodgers accomplishes over the next 10 years. Favre's and Rodgers' careers have some distinct similarities quality-wise through their first 6 seasons as starting quarterbacks (1992-1997 for Favre, 2008-2013 for Rodgers).

I think the Packers should have kept Vince Young. He can run the ball.

I'd vote A. Rodgers. BF's ego got the better of him. Those last few years were not very good. Rodgers doesn't have near as good a team around him as BF did. That makes BF look better than he was.

Except that he had arguably his best year ever in his second to last year.

I still enjoy watching Rodgers playing. It sucks the Packers almost lost him for the season. LOL!
