What a great victory for the Green Bay Packers against the Atlanta Falcons. If Aaron Rodgers hadn't officially broken onto the National scene yet I think it's safe to say he busted through the door last night.
Bring on the Bears!
They are hot hot hot. Great play! They dominated in all aspects!
I think it's quite fitting that Brett Favre officially retires the same week when Aaron Rodgers cements his place as one of the game's superstars.
The Packers dominated the game from the 2nd quarter on. Their defense is overshadowed by Aaron Rodgers, but that defense is really becoming a force in the game.
As a Vikings fan, I offer my congrats to the Packers. They suffered through a host of injuries throughout the season that held them back from being as good as they could have been and now they have turned it on when it matters the most. It looks like Aaron Rodgers will have a few MVPs in his future and the Packers will likely contend for as long as he is there. With that said, I'm not surprised to see them have the success they have had in this stretch run and I don't think they are going to be done any time soon. It looks like the NFC North will be well represented in the NFC Championship game.
As for the Falcons, this is the reason why they did not get the respect some people thought they deserved throughout the season. A light schedule can do that for a team.
I can only imagine how good the Packers would be if they didn't have 14 players on the IR this season, including key contributors like Ryan Grant, Morgan Burnett and Jermichael Finley.
Were it not for the injuries, I imagine Green Bay would be hosting the game next week instead of heading to Soldier Field.
Rodgers played his best game of his career. The Pack is back!
I expected the Falcons to come out with more tenacity. But just like the Patriots I think the Bye week hurt the Falcons. Giving Aaron Rodgers a short field is always disastrous for any team playing against him.

I don't know if any of you have been following this, but it was recently announced, since the Packers lost this year in the playoffs, that Miss Wisconsin was voted Miss America during that same weekend. However, during her acceptance speech, she made a public invite to Aaron Rodgers, as she...

Next week's divisional game between the Giants and Packers should be a good one. Last time they met in Week 13, the Packers won 38-35 in MetLife Stadium. Rodgers engineered a last-minute drive to set up a 31-yard field goal. The GMen will go into Lambeau Field next week a heavy underdog against an...

Where would you rank his performance among the greatest playoff performances of the past?

After Ted Thompson, the General Manager of the Green Bay Packers, traded Brett Favre to the New York Jets, most people wanted his head, but now only a little over 2 years later, I think most people would rather have Aaron Rodgers make a crucial start at QB for their team in 2010 over Brett Favre.
