The only question I have about Aaron Rodgers is in his toughness. Does Aaron Rodgers have the nuts to make the gritty, this is going to hurt but we need it plays?
This had nothing to do with injury prone or physical skills. Rather, about what it takes upstairs to get it done during crunch time.
Rodgers recently made the following statement:
"I like our position with what is happening in the division -- Jay Cutler in Chicago, what might happen in Minnesota, and Matthew Stafford in Detroit. Maybe we can become more of an aerial division than a grind-it-out, black-and-blue division."
You know what aerial division translates too? A bunch of pansies. This is exactly what you have in Minnesota, Chicago, and Detroit right now. I don't see any need to join them. The Packers were soft last year. The team played with no emotion, no fire, and no sense of urgency. When we needed a tough yard, we were pushed back.
The last thing we need around here is more finesse.
This will always be the black-and-blue division Aaron. That's what makes Packer football what it is. Packer football is about having what it takes to outlast, out will, and physically pound your opponent into submission. We couldn't do it last season, and an open thought about wanting this to become a bird farm division doesn't make me feel any better.
I like your style number 12, I really do. You say all the right things, get all the hot chicks, and you look like you walked straight out of GQ.
But, can you get us a yard on fourth down when you know you are going to feel your Sunday face on Monday morning?
I hope so.
