Green Bay Packers, Rodgers Answered The Big Question

Rock HardersContributor IJanuary 1, 2009

In the beginning of Green Bay Packers 2008 season, the big question was : Did the Packers make a wise choice in trading Brett Favre to the Jets and passing the helm to Aaron Rodgers?

Let's compare stats:

Rodgers—28 TDs, 13 Ints ,and four rushing TDs for a QB rating of 93.8

Favre—22 TDs, 22 Ints, and no rushing TDs for a QB rating of 81.0

Numbers don't lie, not only was it a smart move by the Packers to say adios to the HOFer, but they also kept their dignity.  I got so tired of hearing "Sports Analysts" suggesting that the Packers should become the next Suzie Chapstick and kiss Favre's ass. What kind of message would that be sending to the rest of the team?   It's about time management grows a pair and not letting them be held hostage by a player.
