Aaron Rodgers Impact on the Packers Offense

Even before the '08 season began Aaron Rodgers had to deal with fans booing him while he came into training camp.

The main reason was because Green Bay's beloved quarterback Brett Favre wanted to come back and play with the organization, but the Packers didn't want him back, opting for Rodgers instead.

Poor Rodgers had nothing to do with any of this but never the less Packer fans seemed to hold him accountable. Aaron fought back when the regular season came with his play on the field, show the world he has what it takes to run the Packers offense effectively.

This benefited Greg Jennings who went on to have a nice year with 1292 yards receiving, 16.2 yards per catch and 9 touchdowns. Now that Rodgers has proven himself, fantasy owners can draft Jennings without worry of if he has a capable quarterback.
