To be fair to Rodgers his team did not have an easy time of it two seasons ago, when they won the Super Bowl. He was sacked a lot, he got injured and missed part of a couple of games, Packers didn't even win their division that year and had to play 3 playoff games on the road--they dealt with plenty of adversity.
Not to be on Rodgers' nuts or anything but he is a great quarterback. No need to downplay that, he's the best QB in the league and we still took it him
2 Seasons ago when they won the SB, their Defense was a lot better, among others who contribute to the defense, they had Nick Collins playing FS at pro bowl level. They don't have any of them now. They're REBUILDING their defense right now and will continue to do so in next year's draft like I said before.
As I have ALREADY mentioned, Fartgers is still a good QB in the league for obvious reasons (he gained experience and got to sit back, watch and learned mike mccarthy's WCO behind a HOF in Favre, always had a talented dependable WR crop, took over a play-off team, etc etc etc...) Now that some of the stuff aren't going his way, he looks average like Alex Smith use to look when Nolan and Singletary were the HCs, even though he still has the same good coaching staff. i.e. As of today, the Fartkers are declining as a team OVERALL (they don't have the players they use to have) and will continue to do so in the coming years, now that fartgers has already won a SB. Fartgers won't ever get the stats he had last year. GB might make one more good play off run for the SB with Fartgers at QB in 2014, but I doubt they will have more chances than that, and I am calling right now that the fartkers will be sending fartgers packing by 2018 (when he will be 35 like peyton LOL).
People give too much credit to Fartgers for GB's success (cause he's the GB QB and they run a WCO based spread pass dominated offense that take advantage of open WRs), AGAIN especially when you consider all of the circumstances and how lucky he was, the situation he was drafted into (stable good WCO coaching on the offensive side, talented WR crop, time to sit and learn behind a HOF, taking over a play-off team, etc etc etc...). In reality if he was drafted by the 49ers 1st overall (instead of Alex Smith), fartgers wouldn't have been any better and might not even have survived LOL. i.e. He's NOT as good as people think, football is a TEAM game after all and good coaching makes a lot more difference than most fans and media think or believe it does.
