It's been reported in various places, but there's an interview of Green Bay Packers QB Aaron Rodgers making the rounds. A link to the audio, and a partial transcript, is available from Sports Radio Interviews.

Most of the headlines have focused on his comments about Christina Aguilera and the fighting cameramen. But since I'm a football geek, I liked the one about their playoff win over the Falcons.

While I was optimistic after they beat the Eagles, their huge win over the Falcons turned them into the team to beat. From SRI:

The Atlanta game was just one of those special nights. We had great feelings going in that we were capable of that performance. Now maybe not those numbers 31 out of 36 or whatever, but we were confident we were going to be able to move the ball against them because they did exactly what they did on film.

He's got a lot of confidence. Also, he's so focused that the Super Bowl "felt like a normal game."
