Mr. Rodgers Neighborhood

Work has been slow this week so I have been watching way to much T.V.  Conference championships are all the rage, as they should be and I can't wait for Sunday.  One thing I'm having touble wrapping my mind around is why some people don't believe in Aaron Rodgers.  They guy is a top 4 or 5 Quarterback in the league.  Now I know what you are thinking "another Green Bay fanatic"?  That's not the case.  I love the NFL so much, that I would struggle to tell you who my favorite team is.  I can watch any team without bias and just enjoy the competition.  With that being said, there is no other QB I'd like to have on my team than Rodgers.  He has thrown for 28, 30, and 28 TD's in his first three years as a starter.  Rodgers was one missed start away from being the first QB to throw for 4,000 yards in that same span.  This season the Packers have never been down by more than 7 points in a game all year long.  That was the regular season, I get that, but he has been even better in the postseason.  Although he's only had 3 starts, all have been on the road, and he's been lights out.  He did make a big error in OT in Arizona last year, but 45 points couldn't win the game?  Arizona was real good offensively, but come on D, 45 COULDN'T WIN THE GAME?  Chicago will be a real test of his medal this week.  Two opponents don't get any more familiar with one another than the Packers & the Bears.  The game could go either way, I just can't bet agianst Rodgers.  There will ultimately be more than just two players who decide this game, but I like Rodgers decison making way better than Cutler's.  Whoever makes that ONE mistake is gonna cost their team the win on Sunday.  That's where I trust what my eyes tell me.  Rodgers should lead his team past the Bears, and give the AFC represetative all they can handle in the SuperBowl.
