    Rode the Rodgers/Brees train for another fantasy title and one loss season.

    I guess it's undefeated or bust in 2012.

    Congrats to the Packers on a 15-1 season. Still pretty pissed that they couldn't beat the fucking Chiefs to go 16-0 though.

    In other news, our backup just broke the franchise record for TD passes/Passing yards in a game. The hell?

    In any case, the Packers will win the Super Bowl.

    Not sure why I'm sounding cocky though considering how bad our defense is :lol:

    Here's a tweet from Skip Bayless that I find very relevant:


    And if it's not a Packers/Saints vs. Patriots superbowl I'm going to be depressed.

    Let's try to prove the "Rodgers is a system guy" by placing Caleb Hanie in Green Bay.

    And Jerry Angelo has been fired. Nothing can ruin this sweet sweet day for me.

    I'd like to point out a flaw in the argument that Aaron Rodgers is a "system quarterback."

    He sat behind Brett Favre and learned the offense for three seasons before becoming the Packers' starting quarterback. Favre was a gunslinger who consistently made bad decisions with the football, as evidenced by the fact that he owns the all-time interceptions record as well as the touchdowns record. Aaron Rodgers is much smarter with the football than Favre ever was. Rodgers doesn't make stupid mistakes; he knows when to take a sack; he knows when to throw the ball away. He's got fantastic receivers around him (Jordy Nelson, WHAT!) but that doesn't make him a "system quarterback." He is, simply, a fantastic quarterback on a fantastic offense.

    The same argument can be made for Matt Flynn. He's sat behind Aaron Rodgers for the past four seasons. He's gotten to learn the offense behind one of the best quarterbacks in the league. Rodgers called all of Flynn's plays during their Week 17 game. They know the offense, they know what to do. That's all there is to it. I'm sure if you put either one of them in another offense (preferably similar, since it's really hard to play in one offense for so long and then switch to another), they'd be just as good.

    There's a lot of talk of Flynn signing with the Browns this offseason. He's coming from a West Coast offense, the Browns run a WCO and they need a good quarterback with a big, strong arm who makes good decisions with the football. I believe that if Matt Flynn signed with the Browns, he'd make all their receivers look way better than they are, which, in my opinion, is what Aaron Rodgers did in Green Bay. Yes, Jordy Nelson, Greg Jennings and Donald Driver are good, but if they had a garbage quarterback, they'd look horrible.

    That's what a system quarterback is...
