    GREEN BAY, Wis. - Aaron Rodgers gets a daily reminder he doesn't need: Less than 10 feet from where he dresses is Brett Favre's old locker, nameplate intact, and complete with shoulder pads still sitting on the shelf.

    I would have been very surprised if he had said anything different.

    Only one way to tell if he's ready...

    He's much more prepared than many want to give him credit for.
    I would say that he is definitely more prepared than Tarvaris Jackson is.
    Was trained on the sidelines before being thrown into the fire.
    At the end of the year I doubt that Rodgers will be known as the weakest link on the Packers.

    I tend to agree with you on this.

    He will make some mistakes reading defenses, however, that happens to Vets with lots of gametime experience.
    IMHO those mistakes will be pretty minimal.

    I don't think he's better prepared for upcomming season then Tarvaris.
    Tarvaris has played a full season ( except the games he missed ) and is fired up. The pressure on TJ is way lower then on Rodgers. It's true he has had more training but then again in-game experience learns you alot more then holding the clipboard.

    He is more prepared to start the season if you compare him to TJ last season where he had no real experience or training.

    I can see your point my friend, but I think there are two ways to get a QB ready.
    TJ and Aaron are examples of both.

    In short, he will make some mistakes this year from lack of actual reps under center during game time situations, but it isn't gonna be as significant as some think.
    Additionally, I believe TJ will make those same types of mistakes this year.

    Re: Packers QB Aaron Rodgers says he's ready for spotlight and ready to lead in post

    I have to agree with Prophet on this one.
    Rogers was at one point regarded as the best QB coming into that years draft.
    He's sat behind one of the best to ever play, and when given the chance he's played pretty well.
    At this point in time, i would rank them at about even.
    I think Rogers was a great pick by them, and he will become a pretty good qb.
    But, there's only one way to find out.

    The jury is still out on who will make it in the NFL, one, both, or neither.
    I agree, TJack has more real-life experience in NFL regulars season game times.
    Rodgers looked poised in the game I saw him play in (n=1).
    I would also say that 2009 will be a better comparison of them both.
    As Marr alluded to, one was trained in the traditional way of 'under the wings of a veteran and watching' while Tarvaris was thrown to the wolves early.
    Will be interesting to see how they perfom.

    Well that was the training they wanted to give TJ also but then Brad Johnson turned out to be just a ' one year miracle '
