    aaron rodgers as far as I’m concerned is that he is the best Quarterback and believe he will surpass Farve in his career and far better than the golden boy( Tom Brady) and you do it all and even throw your body in the help the team score and you will do it again this year!!!!

    Yes, Aaron Rodgers is an amazing quarterback and deserve all those rewards. Just hope he can do as well next year… without all the head injuries. Don’t want Muhammad Ali out there as quarterback.

    Go Pack! I’m still riding the high since the Superbowl. Bumped into a guy with a Steelers lanyard the other day. He took a look at mine and gave me a scowl I’ll never forget! My best to all the players on the roster, they all deserve recognition.

    I agree with everyone. I have been a Packers fan since the Seventies and he is one of the best overall Querterbacks i have seen. He’s alot better than Farve and Brady. With Rogers at the Helm, we will be a great Team for a very long time. GO PACK GO.

    This continues to bring magic back to Titletown. Our little cousins to the south received two nominations. (what? gotta have a little smack!;) ) I am proud to be an owner, and thrilled to have watched this team win against such overwhelming odds. No Packer team in our history has done so much with so little chance!!! Starr had the best team around him, Favre played with and made others better than they were. This was the first time we had a team put it together! Aweosme
