After watching the first 3 quarters of the Packers game I can't help but be excited. Aaron Rodgers looked slow at first and then got in to a grove by about the third series. He took his time in the pocket when needed and let the offensive line do their job while the pass rush formed around them. A couple of miscues by Brandon Jackson when he didn't pick up the blitz. His delivery was on point most of the time, with a couple of catchable balls being dropped by the younger guys. His stats of 9 for 15 and a 117 yards looked pretty decent, although could've been better. I was pleased with his performance. Most impressive was James Jones catching a Rodgers bullet in double coverage, ripping himself away from both tacklers and losing his helmet in malay....scoring a touchdown!
-Sometimes I look at the backdrop of a Packer game to notice the fans...much the same with the Brewers. I can't help but notice an abundance of dorks. Dorks wearing cheese-heads THE ENTIRE GAME. Or dorks wearing muscle-man hats with bulging arms coming down over the ears. Or the dorks who wear a Favre jersey, despite the big trade going down a week ago. If I had a jersey of a player who was traded, cut, or whatever....I would not wear it anymore. That's just me though. Buying a jersey is like an investment. You better be buying the right jersey if it's authentic or a great replica. I for one have purchased the following: Ryan Braun, Ben Sheets (2003), and Nick Barnett (2003). I plan on wearing those a long time!
There is nothing wrong in buying a CC Sabathia jersey if you want to sport the coinage to do so. Just make sure you give it to goodwill once he signs with a new team next year!
Sorry, I went off babbling there.
I will now wait for the pro-Favre fans to rip me....
Oh...I also heard on the radio at work that a kid in WI bought a Favre jersey 6 years ago from the NFL shop (I think it was the nfl shop). When he got it....the jersey had a mistake...they put the name and number on a Jets jersey. They kept it and still have it today.
