My whole point is Rodgers has won with out a Jerry Rice HOF talent just like Joe Montana. And If you look back Joe Montana had some all pro talent around him when he won with out Rice.
Both Montana and current day Rodgers are surgeons as far as cutting up defenses with precision accurate passing.
Rodgers has won over 10 games every year he has started except his first year starting
Yeah. Its ridiculous to suggest otherwise. I don't know why some people have to pigeonhole themselves into thinking a guy can't be great while also playing in a great system. Joe Montanta played in a groundbreaking offensive system that changed the NFL. The Packers were a very banged up team last year with no running game and Jermichael Finley missed almost the entire season. Those great WRs sure didn't play very great in the Super Bowl.
Some of those TDs were total fluke plays by Flynn. The Packers didn't have a RB screen for a TD all season. Then all of a sudden Ryan Grant takes one 80 yards to the house. That Driver TD was a total busted coverage. If you ask me, I think the Lions simply overlooked Flynn. I bet they thought they just had to show up and win. Clearly Flynn is a very capable player. He played well against New England last year. He's proven he can play. At the same time, it wasn't but a couple hours before the game that the Packers put Rodgers on the inactive list. I think some of it was Flynn playing really well and another part was the Lions thinking they couldn't possibly lose to Matt Flynn.
