    Even Torry was slobbering on Rodgers nuts during the broadcast, talking about how Rodgers was "pushing the ball down the field". At the time, the longest passes he had thrown was a few 5 yarders to the sidelines. He threw one long pass the whole game later, and that guy was only open against a rookie that blew his assignment.
    Rodgers dinks and dunks, and he's the greatest ever, Bradford dinks and dunks, and he's captain checkdown.

    Uh, no, they should report on the game as it was and not slobber over a QB. It doesn't make any difference if the rams have had success, just report what fricking happened.

    Watch the rams stomp the browns and Manziel will be the whole story.

    Re-watching the game, I have a different perspective. I've been over & over both teams' first two drives. I don't see an iota of difference between the two quarterbacks... whoever they are. Both looked very impressive.

    I'm just glad the 9ers didn't draft Rodgers over Smith in 2005.

    I really don't know why anybody watches ESPN, NFLN, NFL Pregame shows, etc. They are all garbage.

    Let me clarify them saying "make or break" about Bradford. It's mosly "break" with the "make" only thrown in so they don't sound biased. They hate talking about Sam and the Rams. They just wish we fall back into the pit we arose from.

    I'd like to see some caparison done on how Rodgers was brought into the league versus Bradford.

    I know the Rams did not have the luxury of having Sam sit behind a great QB while learning how to play at this level. Has this hurt his development or is getting thrown in the fire just the way it had to be?

    Has Rodgers ever had to learn a new system or is he still running the same thing he learned while sitting behind Favre?

    I really thought Sam looked good outside the deep throw to Britt. Hopefully this year he will show he is ready to lead the Rams now and in the future.

    I completely believed coming in as a rookie on that pitiful Rams team Bradford really regressed his skills and his confidence and basically how he played football period after having a solid rookie year. Rodgers just slid into the driver seat of a performance car with that team in front of him and went full speed ahead

    That's one thing that annoyed the crap out of me on another board. I was posting during the game and some Lions fan starts harping on Bradford for "always checking down" after the first drive. I, then, pointed out that Rodgers had done the exact same thing and people applauded him for taking what the defense gave him. His response was to quote average pass distance since 2010. Then, Bradford's second drive happened and I thanked him for his earlier comments because now we all got to have a good laugh at his expense.

    On the subject of the thread, doesn't bother me, Rodgers earned the praise.

    oh rodgers has earned the praise - it's just funny to me that people use 'checking down' as a bashing point but praise the HOF QB for the doing the same thing. You're right though - hypocrites are always good for a hearty laugh (y) :D:cool:

    I think Rodgers has been the best QB in the game for a few years now. I don't see any weaknesses.
    -instinctual
    -intelligent
    -strong arm
    -accurate
    -good touch passer
    -good deep ball
    -mobile
    -great feet
    -leader
    -durable
    -not a "look at me" prima donna in the media

    He deserves props.

    Sorry but Rogers HAS earned the spot light. And IMO, he showed why. Totally in command. To be fair though, he has been in the same system for quite some time and had the luxury of holding a clipboard for a HOF QB. I thought Sam looked very good but he has a ways to go before he has earned equal billing with a QB like Rogers.

    No one is questioning Aaron's deservedly elite status, or that he doesn't deserve accolades. He gets them repeatedly, season in & season out. But let's talk about THIS game! You know, Sam's first game back from knee surgery, in his so-called "make or break" season that all the pundits have been ranting about. Certainly, leading up to the game, that was what they talked about. You'd think that after he played well, they would mention it a lot more than they did. Right? Well, I'm going to commit heresy here. I'm going to say there's an argument to be made that SAM OUTPLAYED ROGERS! Go back & watch every pass the two QBs made in their quarter of play. Both did well, but Sam had the two outstanding passes... to Quick & Kendricks. Rogers had no throws as impressive as those two. ( No, I don't really think Sam outplayed Rogers. Just making a point.) Anyway, I don't worry that much about what the pundits say... even when they are on Sam's bandwagon come season's end. I am just going to lean back and enjoy this season.
