For fans like me, who have been in awe of Brett Favre’s legendary resilience, the question is obvious – can Aaron Rodgers recover quickly? Even though I remain curious as to his skills and playmaking ability, I am extremely interested in what happens on Sunday. Packers.com reports that he will “push” to start on Sunday. I definitely hope he can.
Are the comparisons fair? In a larger sense, no. I believe that Rodgers can forge his own legacy, and he is actually off to a fair start. However, I simply cannot endure the torture of having a soft quarterback. I want a tough guy. Can Rodgers deliver? I want to pull for a quarterback that can take a beating. Is #12 capable? Favre put together 257 consecutive starts. Can Rodgers make it through five?
It concerns me for Rodgers to have one of those “haunting” injuries so early. All quarterbacks get hit. All quarterbacks get hurt.
I really hope he starts Sunday, and I really hope he puts together a good game.
