Well, he's proven so far only to be a good COLLEGE QB. The same was true with Campbell at Cal in '81...and we all saw how that turned out (dude eventually ditched the NFL for the ministry...not that there's anything wrong w/ that.)
Originally posted by Sec19Row53For what it's worth, other renowned Packer #12s (Rodgers' new number) include Jim Del Gaizo, John Hadl, Brian Dowling (that's "BD" from Doonesbury), and T.J. Rubley. To borrow a phrase from The Thrill - ye gods!
To be fair, there were a couple of good #12's in green-and-gold history:
Bart Starr's backup Zeke Bratkowski...
and The Man With Joe Namath's Knees...LYNN F'N DICKEY.
I read an article in the LA Times last week (I would link it up, but I believe that the link's expired) that said that student-athletes are a lot worse off than we think. (Also unfortunately, I don't remember the specific examples.)
