Just to get all my football feelings out at the moment, there is one thing I’m a little excited about.
As I’ve posted earlier, there is one and only one college football team I will ever root for, and that team is Cal. For those of you who don’t know (and I’ve always found this to be a surprisingly large number of people), Cal is the University of California at Berkeley. Yes, hippie-ass Berkeley is a PAC-10 powerhouse (well, usually — after Nate Longshore went down this year, they struggled mightily).
Now, Rodgers’ few outings with the Packers have not been exactly breathtaking. But I am very interested to see what a couple of years under Brett Favre’s wing will do to Rodgers.
I hope Rodgers shakes the rookie jitters as fast as possible and makes his mark for the Packers.
Whatever happens, it will be very interesting to see how he plays next year (of course, it’s not just up to Rodgers; the key to a quarterback’s success is inexorably tied to the success of the offensive line, which should be clear to anyone who watched this year’s Superbowl).
I wish Rodgers luck and wish him the best in the upcoming season. That is, as long as he doesn’t knock the Patriots or the Raiders out of the playoffs. 🙂
