Rodgers Speaks


Aaron Rodgers took some questions Saturday at the Green Bay Packer “Fan Fest.” He might have a little Matt Hasselback in him. Asked if he has grown since he’s been a Packer, Rodgers said: “No, I’m still about 6 foot 2.”

Here is USA Today on Rodgers.

At least in off-the-field presentation. At various points during his press conference, Rodgers showed off several Favre-like qualities, exhibiting an easy-going manner, a self-deprecating wit and an unmistakable — yet subtle — self-confidence.

Says Rodgers:

“I’m not Brett Favre, and if they’re wanting me to be the next Brett Favre, I’m not going to be him,” Rodgers said. “I’m Aaron Rodgers. That’s who I am. I’m going to be the best quarterback I can be.

“He did it his way, I’m going to do it my way, and hopefully I can be successful.”

I’m still skeptical that he’ll be even a better-than-average quarterback, but I think he’s handling the non-football part of this difficult transition quite well.
