(Troy Aikman)If that is the case, then Aaron Rodgers of the fairway Bay Packers may perhaps good be the simplest quarterback to ever play within the NFL. that's what analysts say now, yet this acknowledgement used to be many years in coming.Surpassing everyone's expectancies other than his personal, Rodgers flew lower than the radar for almost his whole athletic profession.

Example text

The next game Rodgers got his first start and first win against Illinois, the school that denied him a scholarship in 2001. The following week, in just his second start, Rodgers helped lead Cal to a stunning 34-31 upset of No. 3 ranked USC. Rodgers was brutally pounded by the USC defense but lasted until the third quarter, at which point Cal was winning 21-7. 5 hours. The following week, the Football Writers Association of America named the Cal Bears the National Team of the Week. By the end of his first season, Rodgers had tied a Cal season record for number of games with at least 300 passing yards (5).

Surrounded by cameras and reporters, Rodgers could do nothing except sit quietly and read text messages from excited friends as he was passed over by team after team. Finally, the Green Bay Packers used their first pick, #24 overall, rescuing Rodgers from further agony. A mixed blessing some analysts remarked, since the Packers already had star quarterback Brett Favre. It meant Rodgers would likely begin his football career as a professional stand-in; the backup guy who threw passes during practice drills and pretended to be the opposing quarterback on the scout team.

According to many analysts, quarterbacks who are “game managers” are the key to winning seasons and Super Bowls these days. Teams aren’t just looking for the guy who can launch footballs like cannons, but a thinks-on-his feet strategist with a talent for seeing how a play will develop before the ball is snapped. If this theory holds true, then no quarterback is more suited to the football-as-chess-match style of play than Rodgers. With a near-photographic memory, years of scouting opponents, and his ability to turn visualizations in his head into 1st-and-10 gains on field, Rodgers has all the right tools.
