SI's article about Aaron Rodgers this week was a little disappointing because it had little about Aaron Rodgers. Most of the article was devoted to other quarterbacks who followed Hall of Fame quarterbacks and failed. It was interesting, but I want more Packers stuff!
At first I thought the article's author roped Rodgers into saying "the comment!!!"
"I don't feel I need to sell myself to fans. They need to get on board now or keep their mouths shut."
But then I found out that the author was Chris Ballard, who has the distinction of being the only SI author I've ever actually met. Chris is a good guy who doesn't seem the type to force someone into a gotcha moment. Plus, he had another quote from Rodgers in his article:
"I find if you don't get stuff out, it will tear you up."
So Rodgers is likely to say whatever is on his mind. Probably not a great idea for a 24 year old guy who is talking to an SI reporter.
