Last night, Aaron Rodgers gave one of the most unbelievable and dominating performances by an NFL quarterback that I’ve ever seen in my lifetime. And I’m saying this as a guy who’s been a Packer fan since 1990, and all throughout the Brett Favre years. Just absolute domination with the football, and he tore apart the Falcons secondary.
And now we’re going to the NFC Championship game!
Yesterday morning, I went to get the paper and did some grocery shopping for the impending snow storm. As I got back to my place around 11 am, the snow flurries began. It didn’t stop until sometime early this morning.
Here in Central Jersey, we got about 18 inches, so it came down about almost two inches an hour. I just got in from shoveling out my car, but it was almost useless as there is a biting wind and I’d say the temperature is not getting above 30 degrees, which really doesn’t help at all.
I have no problem with snow and cold weather, but this is ridiculous. Winter is not even a week old, and it’s already picking up where last winter left off. Somebody pissed off the snow gods royally.
So basically, I’ve been inside since Christmas night. It’s worth noting that the Green Bay Packers shellacked the New York Giants yesterday afternoon at Lambeau Field, or rather, the Giants beat themselves with six…SIX…turnovers. It’s not done yet for the Packers as they finish out the season at Lambeau in what is essentially a play-off game versus the Bears. And nobody can confuse the Giants defense with Julius Peppers and the Bears. The playoffs begin for the Pack this Sunday. I’m hopefully optimistic.
The legend of Favre is dead, and Aaron Rodgers killed it.
Aaron Rodgers and the Pack dismantled the Vikings today, with a robust 4 TDs and 301 yards. It was the Packers’ fourth straight victory, and swept the season series with the Vikings. More importantly, it should put an effective end to the whiny soap opera that is the Brett Favre story.
As a Packers fan, it’s tough to watch. But seriously, the guy should have hung up the cleats back in 2008, because since then, he’s embarrassed himself and his legend.
