Is It Mr. Rodger's Neighbourhood Now?

Megan FowlerCorrespondent ISeptember 17, 2008

Two weeks into the 2008 NFL season, and the naysayers are starting to quiet down. Aaron Rodgers has now officially established himself as an NFL-calibre quarterback, right? The Packers have won two games, which is more than the Dolphins, Bengals, Browns, Jaguars, Texans, Chargers, Chiefs, Lions, Vikings, Rams, and Seahawks combined. 

Rodgers has thrown for over 500 yards in those two games, putting more than 70 points on the board. All signs are pointing to a seamless transition from Brett Favre to Aaron Rodgers.

But wait.

If one looks more closely at the first two games, it's possible that Rodger's baptism by fire hasn't come yet. Jon Kitna still threw three interceptions at Ford Field on Sunday, and Rodgers was also far from perfect. In Week One, the Minnesota defence was spotty at best, allowing far more points than it should have. 

The real test is going to come this Sunday against the Dallas Cowboys. Good luck, Mr. Rodgers. You're going to need it.
