Rodgers Hurt, Favre Heaves Record

The Green Bay Packers have been pretty happy with their choice to keep Aaron Rodgers at the helm of their franchise and let Brett Favre move on to the "Big Apple", but last Sunday in Tampa, Rodgers went down with a hurt shoulder and lost the game against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Meanwhile, Favre had a career record day as far as TD passes go. He was working on a gimpy ankle, but the Cardinals "D" was defenseless after staying on the east coast all week, following their loss to the Redskins.
Two different pictures of QB's, but I still believe the Pack did the right thing and moved on with their young gunslinger. Rodgers is going to be very efficient over the long haul. The Bucs threw some beautiful and unique blitzes at him. He wasn't going to have a great day against a great defense, but he got hurt scrambling and landing with his right arm stretched out above his head. The problem for Green Bay is that Matt Flynn is their #2 and he looked like a high school kid filling in. Don't know what the problem is with Brian Brohm, but its really bad when your seventh round pick beats out your second rounder. And even worse when Flynn looked like he did. Here's hoping Rodgers isn't seriously injured.
